im not the OP but i can tell you how i make my cannabis paste. i used it mostly when i was diagnosed aug 2015 with breast cancer. i took it for the 3 weeks in between diagnosis/biopsy and surgery. it shurnk the tumor from 11mm to 8mm in that time frame, yeah it was a little tumor, BUT come surgery time they cut out a section MUCH smaller than originally intended. instead of cutting out the size of a fist, they cut out the size of a walnut. that is a big difference as far as im concerned so i put this down as a WIN, and i continue to take it at a lower dose since i declined chemo, radiation and hormone therapy.
here is how i make it and it is simple to make and use.
you need 8oz good dry bud
16 half pint canning jars with lids and rings
coconut oil or veg glycerine
large water pot for processing
1)clean and sterilize canning jars, lids and rings
2) grind pot to powder
3) put one half ounce of powder in each jar
4) put in 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil or glycerine and stir
5) put lids on jars and close snug, not super tight
6) put jars in large pot of hot water--this is like a water bath
water should be staying around 165 degrees--dont go over 185, ok?
put a lid on pot to keep the jars under water line as best you can, add a dinner plate to hole jars down if you want.
7) put a lid on the hot water pot and let simmer at temp range of 165-185 degrees for 12 HOURS. you will need to check your water level every so often to top off.
OR you can put in over at 175 degrees for 24 hourts
do your best to keep temp in that range but dont panic if you check and it is a bit higher or lower, just add a bit of cooler water and lower temp if too hot or turn temp up a tiny bit if too cool. just do the very best you can.
when the time is over, take them out of water bath gently and put on towel on counter to cool. as they cool they will seal. and you can store in a cupboard
you end up with 16 half pint jars with about one months usage amount in each jar.
the starting dose is take an amount the size of a pea once a day, then 2 a day and then 3 a day, find your comfort level. the idea is to get up to about 1-3gm a day. i use '00' capsules and 3 capsules come to 3gm. you can skip capsules and put it on a cracker or roll it into a tiny ball and swallow if you want. like most herbal stuff, it tastes like dirt, lol.
in all the sites that had the info on pate it looked like
one gm = 2teaspoons is considered a high dose.
i do not know how that was arrived at.. i did get to read an actual analysis posted, wish i saved it, it was very good as to strength of end product compared to RSO. it was equal if not better.
to be honest, for those 3 weeks waiting for surgery i worked my way up to 8 gm a day. it took me 2 whole weeks of slowly increasing dose to get up to that amount and still function. working up to that amount mde me sleepy, woozy at times til my body adjusted but then i was ok. i went a far as i could with it in the short time i had and it certainly proved itself. i cant tell YOU to work up to 8gm, i did it to see how much i could ingest and still function and get as much as cancer killers into me.
it is interesting to note this---at this dose of 8gm a day all my fibromyalgia pain disappeared, not a twinge or nothing, it was like it was all gone. great releif. however, after my surgery i wanted to continue the paste because the treatment is supposed to be 90 days and i only did it for 3 weeks--BUT i found i could not tolerate the high dose of 8gm a day after the tumor was removed. i struggled to take 6gm, i stay around 4-6gm a day. only thing i can think of is after the tumor was gone my body did not need as much because the 8gm after surgery wiped me out and put me to sleep big time. i can function just fine on 4-6gms a day if i take after a meal---which i highly suggest or you will get tired and sleepy during the day.
if you have to skip a dose just make it up at bed time, it helps with a good deep sleep. i usually take 2-3 at bedtime
remember to start off with a small pea size and see how your body responds
3 small pea size is about one gm roughly.
ive used both veg glycerine and coconut oil and prefer the texture of the product with the coconut oil.
when you open a jar it will look like only half filled and dry-ish,
just stir it up, as it gets warmer it melts /softens.
i have tried making the oil, tinctures, concentrates, teas, etc and it is all fun to experiment with. this plant can do alot of good for people.. this paste is a concentrate, you get ALL the CBDs and dont throw anything away i like that.
i hope this helps someone. if you have any questions please feel free to ask, i will do my best to help out.
