I did my first Green Dragon in early Jan this year, and its the best thing I ever did. I cant stand smoking, so I had been making oil from ground up bud - grind the bud, decarb, then slow cook in oil for a couple of hours.
The taste was awful! I used it to make brownies and I am to the point I cant stand the thought of eating another brownie as long as I Live!!!
I made some with Coconut oil, and it was very slightly better, but still very bad taste.
Then I found out more about making Green Dragon from @ReikoX. I used Ever Clear to make some Green Dragon from decarbed bud. Then I cooked off all the Ever Clear and dissolved the resulting resin in some Coconut oil and used that to make capsules.
No more bad taste and easy dosing! I made some caps with three drops of coconut oil and some with 4 drops. I love the three drop caps for day time use. Thats just enough to take the edge off my chronic pain and put me in a good mood without making me too sleepy. I can take one every 4 hours or so and stay nice and steady.
Then, if the pain is worse or for going to bed, I can take one or more of the 4 drop caps to get through the night. So far, about 6 of the four drop caps is the most Ive had to take in one night when I've had moderate pain from kidney stones.
I still have a little Green Dragon I set aside, but havent felt the need or desire to use it. Its much better in tea or coffe, but still has some taste. Not real bad though.
This (caps) is the best thing I ever did as far as pain management.
