Why bother? Although just eating cannabis, or making tea from it will get you quite stoned, both are inefficient at getting much of the THC (D9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and other cannabiols into your bloodstream.
The main reason for this is that THC is almost insoluble in water, but it is very soluble in non-polar solvents (e.g, fats and oils), This is why tea is so inafective (and expensive). If there are no oils or fat in your small intestine when you eat hashish, very little of it will enter your bloodstream.
A much more efficient way it to make a solution of THC in an oil such as olive oil, and then emulsify it so that it is digested and absorbed much more rapidly and efficiently.( An emulsion is a solution of a fat in water, as microscopic fat droplets, held in the water by an emulsifying agent like lecithin, milk is an emulsion). Lecithin is used as the emulsifier becouse it is (reletivly) cheap and easy to obtain, completely natural and is used by your body to help disperse fats in the gut, Lecithin from health food shops is, of course of vegetable origin.
Instructions 1. Take either 1/32 – 1/16 OZ. hashish (resin), 1/16 – 1/8 OZ, marajuana (weed, bush), or 1/32 OZ, skunkweed for each person.
Note: The quantities specified of other ingredients make this unsuitable for more than four people.
2. Finaly powder the cannabis and add to about 50ml of olive oil in the bottom of a small saucepan.
3. Add six heaped teaspoonfuls of lecithin granules.
4. Heat very gently until most of the lecithin has melted/dissolved in the oil, making sure the oil does not reach boiling point, as overheating will reduce the THC content. While heating, swill the liquid in the bottom of the pan about, so that it is fairly evenly mixed.
5. Turn off the heat, and add 50ml ( a double) of decent vodka (minimum 40% abv) This will start to boil when it touches the oil (Ensure that it doesn’t boil out of the pan and all over the cooker) Again swill round the liquid evenly, after about 2 minutes add 1 pint of water depending on how many people are drinking it. Wisk vigorously until the mixture looks like milk, and there are no fat droplets on the top.
6. The liquid can be mixed 50/50 with milk (full or half fat), milkshake, etc, to flavor it. It is now ready to drink. The residue at the bottom of the pan can be eaten if you really want to get messed up but i would sugest its not for the light hearted.
For maximum efect, the emulsion should be taken on an empty stomach that way it usually takes 30 minutes to an hour to come up,with the efect peaking at 1 to 3 hours, the efect can last from 6 to 18 hours.
The intensity of the hit and the buzz obtained depend on the type of cannabis used – if you used 1/16 OZ of northern lights dont expect to be walking anywhere for a day or so.
Similarly, if you usedont expect to come back down to earth for at least 12 hours. I do not advise you to drink much alcohol while on this becouse it realy fucks you sideways and not always pleasently.
