I'm uploading the pics from my last infusion.
I used 30 grams of untrimmed bud and a 30 gram farmers batch from CBD Hemp Direct
They were on sale for $15 and $7.50 so I spent about $27 total with the olive oil included.

It came out way stronger, dark green/brown in color
I used 10oz of Olive Oil in the 60 Grams of Flower.
Decarbed for 45 minutes at around 250f


I took the best looking 15 grams out of each of the 30 gram untrimmed bud packs to keep and I used what was left along with all of the 30g farmers batch

15ml per 8 oz of oil.
I used 10 oz of oil so I added a little extra

This pic has 8oz of oil weighed out.
There was so much flower that I decided to add 2 more ounces of oil after I put it in the Infuzium.

I set it to the regular oil 1 hour setting.
It takes about an hour and 20 minutes for some reason.
There is a load grinding noise that comes from the blade.
It comes on and off throughout the process.

You can tell it infused very well because this brown blob used to be 60 grams of flower.

I just finished a tincture that I did in VG. Tastes a lot like honey :) But I have a question and it's probably a dumb one. Is there a way to know how strong the CBD content is in my tincture?
I have no clue.
if you know the potency of your flower and how good the extraction process you can take a guess.
With mine the darker and more bitter it is the stronger it is.
The less it tastes like the original base the better.

it doesn't bind to VG well.
how did you get it to infuse?
was there heat involved? stirring? etc...
I did this with a slow cooker. I read on another site that you don't have to do it 24 hrs. 8 to 10 is also okay. I did it for 10 hours. It must have come out okay cuz when I put a teaspoon in a cup of tea I do get a bit tingly head feeling after about an hour. Orrrrrrr maybe it's a placebo effect, who knows :)

I just read this so who knows LOL

others argue that glycerin actually delivers a more potent extract because it preserves the protein structures of the information that is sought after in the botanical being extracted. Glycerin may capture less information, but the information that it does glean is complete. Alcohol, conversely, has the potential to denature botanical constituents, rendering them inert, because our bodies can no longer “read” or access the information. We believe that both solvents have their place and that their benefits are registered differently in each individual. A glycerin tincture can be just as powerful as an alcohol tincture, at the right time, for the right person, in the right dose.

This peaked my interest:

The infuzium does the same thing.
I am going to check the book for recipes....
I just remembered the STX infuzium 420 recipe book is online right here:
It's a downloadable PDF file.

It does.
But if I make something smaller like brownies I end up using the stove still.
it makes amazing infused olive and coconut oil though.
I could always use 1/3 cup of the oil I end up with and put it in the brownie mix. 🤔

it takes a larger amount of flower.
at least 14 grams.
It did much better with 60 grams but I had to add a little extra oil.

I think 1 cup (8oz) to 25 to 50 grams is the ideal amount for this machine.
I'm going to try 1oz to 1 cup in the future and i'll let you know what happens.

The alcohol infusion looks interesting.
