While smoking and eating edibles is a great way to enjoy weed, there’s one that’s arguably the best: Vaping THC oil. Using a vape or e-pen is odorless, highly potent, and a lot easier on your lungs than a joint, blunt, or bong. And since THC oil can be pretty costly, it can save you quite a pretty penny to make your own at home. You can use your favorite strains or mix them for a specialty. There are several methods of doing this, but this method is great for beginners.
What You’ll Need for THC Oil
To make your own THC oil for your vape or pen, there are a few things you’ll need.
- You’ll have to get cheese cloth
- 5-6 grams of high-quality bud
- two large mason jars
- a large pot for boiling
- Propylene Glycol
- High Proof (190+) Grain Alcohol,
- dropper bottles,
- And a Pyrex bowl (or aluminum foil and a baking sheet). If you want exact measurements, pick up some blunt tip syringes. You will also want to be wearing rubber gloves throughout the process to protect your skin.
Make sure you don’t use rubbing alcohol! Try EverClear or Alcool instead. You’ll also need a stovetop, of course, or a hot plate if you prefer to boil the water without flames. As for your bud, you’ll want to make sure that it’s finely chopped before you begin. Then you can proceed to decarboxylate the cannabis.
