Some questions about making cannabis paste


Edited: Dec 28, 2018



My Mother has cancer. I was going to make some THC cannabis oil. I then watched a video that explains how making oil loses some other good stuff from the cannabis plant The video said cannabis paste is way better than can cannabis oil as it contains the whole plant and all the different compounds the cannabis plant has. That makes perfect sense to me. It also makes perfect sense that if you cook weed at a high temperature you can destroy some of the plants compounds. Low temperature cooked cannabis paste seems way better than oil.


I have some questions about making the paste


1) Does it matter if you use Indica or a Sativa plant? Rick Simpson says you should only use Indica.


2) What temperature should the water be when cooking the cannabis paste?


3) What is the best way of keeping the water at the required temperature? Is there anything you can buy such as a slow cooker, rice cooker, etc that would help in keeping the water regulated at the right temperature?


4) How long should you cook the paste for?


5) How many teaspoons per day would you recommend my Mother take? Is more better or is there an optimum amount per day?


6) Would it be better to spread it over the day? For example, if my Mother was going to take one teaspoon per day would it be better to take 1/4 teaspoon 4 times a day or just keep to 1 whole teaspoon a day?


7) Roughly how many teaspoons of paste would 28 grams of bud make?



Chef has a youtube video "Canna Paste" about the topic. I have similar interests for information for a friend with skin cancer. I see more a lot more information about dry sift, rosin or bubble hash. Would be good to have more information about paste.

HI dude, I don't have time to watch the video you linked, but I will later. Winston (Chef B's son) reckons that the dose for cannabis oil should be a gram a day. It'll be far too strong initially, so start off smaller, but over the course of 30 days build up to the gram a day. Generally its a 90 day treatment cycle so by day 31 the person should be taking a gram of oil a day.


To answer all of your questions though:

1. I don't think it matters all that much, but typically Indicas are more for healing and Sativas typically are more of a 'head' high. However, each strain is different, and plenty of Sativas heal people.

2. To decarb cannabis, you'll need temperatures to be around 100c, which is the boiling point of water.

3. If I make Cannaoil (using coconut oil), I use a slow cooker. I just place it on the 'low' heat setting. I'm pretty sure chef B also used a slow cooker for one of the RSO extractions on Youtube too.

4. Again, I'm not 100% as I usually make canna coconut oil, but for the oil I cook it for 6-8 hours.

5. Generally with RSO or any of the pastes, as mentioned, take 1g of oil a day.

6. Your mother may find that the 1g dose is very strong initially, so if the dose is spread throughout the day it won't be as strong of a "high" for her.

7. 28g of bud should make about 3-4g of good quality oil/ paste

Thank you.

  • I created a social site that focuses on marijuana... Pot Swap Club, were people are able to trade marijuana and more. I created it last year, however I had some health problems and other issues and had to put the site on hold, but now i'm back in action. I just added forums and could use knowledgeable people , if interested, please watch the short video and visit the site... To our success in life "What we tell ourselves, our brain believes"
  • I want to ask the forum, but I think there is no risk to industrial hemp CBD oil and a urine test flag because the test detects THC and IH is bred to have negligible THC. Anybody have any input or experience about this?
  • I can't remember if I posted this link here, but it's one of my favorite infusion videos. It's from Bubbleponics King on YT. "How to make potent cannabutter for baking or cooking recipes." I know I told Johnny Cakes that I was out for a couple of weeks, but I came across this and think it's good the share it. There are so many questions about how long to decarb, storage, infusing butter, etc. 🕊
