    Three Ways to Make THC Vape Juice

     

    Long-term Steeping Method for Making THC Vape Juice

    Long-term Steeping or Extraction

    Long-term steeping or extraction is an easy way to make vape juice with THC. But it also takes the most amount of time, as you need around three months to do complete the process.

    As a near-effortless process, this method is almost fool-proof, as there are only two (2) crucial phases here: decarboxylating your strain and mixing it with your VG and PG solution.

    If you want to explore this technique, here are what you need:

      • Your favorite strain, with the quantity depending on the strength you want.
      • Food-grade Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG) mixture.
      • Baking tray or oven-safe bowl
      • Aluminum foil
      • Oven
      • Glass jar with airtight lid
      • Rice press
      • Cheesecloth
      • Stirrer
      • Syringe
      • Bottle to store your final output

    1. The first thing you need to do is grind your buds, but don’t overdo it. You want the buds to be coarse but even. You want bigger bits, and not fine particles so that you can filter them properly at the end of the process.

    2. Now spread your coarsely ground buds on the baking tray or oven-safe bowl and cover with foil, and decarboxylate them so that you activate the THC in your strain.

    3. While you heat those herbs, you can work on your PG/VG solution. You can opt for a pre-mixed, but you can also buy them separately.

      When making the solution, remember these points:

      • PG is responsible for bringing out flavor; and
      • VG makes your vape juice viscous and creates the thick clouds when vaped.

      Given these, you would want to have a good balance of these two ingredients. You can try having a mixture of 60 percent VG and 40 percent PG for a good mix of flavor and thickness.

    4. After mixing these, if you plan to mask the smell of your vapors, you can add your masking flavor here.

    5. Once the decarboxylation is finished, let the buds cool down and transfer to your airtight jar.

    6. You can then add your VG/PG solution until the buds are covered in juice.

    7. Stir your solution and store it in a cool dark place for three (3) months. During the process, you will need to stir it every two (2) weeks to ensure even distribution. You may also add more VG/PG solution.

    8. Once you reach three (3) months, take out your mixture and give it a final stir. Then get your rice press and put it on top of another glass jar, and line it with a few layers of cheesecloth.

    9. You then pour your mixture into the rice press, cover with cheesecloth, and squeeze out the juice. The cheesecloth will serve as a filter to keep the particles of your buds from mixing into the final juice.

    10. You can now use this THC vape juice. You can use a syringe to apply to your e-cigarette or vaporizer.

     

    Fast-track Infusion

    This process is not that different from the long-term or three-month infusion. You will need the tools listed above, plus a few more, such as:

      • A double boiler
      • Stove
      • Thermometer
      • Water

     

    1. To get started, grind and decarboxylate your buds, just like you would in the first step. Prepare your PG/VG solution, including any masking flavors.

    2. Then let the buds cool down, and pour in your solution in the jar until all the buds are fully submerged.

    3. Add water to the bigger reservoir of your double boiler, around half an inch deep. Then add water to the smaller container of the double boiler.

    4. Put your double boiler on the stove and heat it until you get a temperature of 220 degrees Fahrenheit.

    5. Add the jar with your buds mixture into the double boiler and let it hear up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You need to keep this temperature constant and not let it go over, as this infuses the THC into the PG/VG solution.

    6. Once you reach the temperature at a steady level, keep it heating at that level for at least an hour. You can add more time if you want a more potent hit.

    7. You will need to mix in more PG/VG solutions during this phase, but don’t overdo it to prevent potency loss.

    8. If you think the mixture is already good enough for you, you can take it out of the double boiler and let it cool.

    9. Once the mixture is warm, take your rice press and cheesecloth and set it up as described in the long-term technique. Pour in your mixture with the cheesecloth acting as a strainer.

    10. You can also layer another cheesecloth to help you push out the solution.

    11. The filtered mixture is now your THC vape juice.


    Rosin Extracted THC Vape Juice

    Rosin Extracted THC Vape Juice

    This is one of the quickest ways to make vape juice infused with THC. If you own a rosin press or buy rosin, you may want to consider this step.

    Here are what you need:

      • Your favorite cannabis buds or rosin
      • A Rosin press (you can omit this if you already have rosin)
      • Parchment paper
      • Pyrex glass
      • Wax liquidizer
      • Stirrer

     

    1. If you will still extract rosin, follow the instructions of the manufacturer of your rosin press. Collect the rosin in a clean container.

    2. Add 0.5 grams of your extracts and mix with a milliliter of your Wax Liquidizer in the Pyrex container. You can add more and remember to use the ratio of 1:2.

    3. Once you have enough on your Pyrex container, you will need to heat it.

    4. You can run the glass onto a lighter for a few seconds until it bubbles, and then mix.

      Or, you can add a small amount of boiling water in a bowl and add your Pyrex container until it’s hot enough to mix easily.

    5. Once mixed, your THC vape juice is ready for vaping.

     

     

    Conclusion

    These steps are listed to serve as a guide in your foray to making your vape juice that’s infused with THC. The methods listed above in making THC vape juice can be modified as you deem fit to your preference.

    You might not get it right the first time, but it takes practice to help you get the right mixture. That said, consider this article as your cheat sheet as you experiment with different flavor profiles of your buds and how they work as vape juice.
