Periodically ethanol is used, other times it is a proprietary blend or carbon dioxide.
I have long had a super high tolerance for substances. Cigarettes never gave myself and others a major “high” or a “rush” whenever I tried them once in college, plus no matter what weight I’ve been at, it hasn’t impacted our ability to hold my liquor better than anyone else I know. I have only consumed enough booze to get supremely drunk once, plus I got so sick the following morning that I never again had the desire to do it. Alcohol consumed at this level would certainly destroy our liver tissue anyway, so it’s certainly for the best that I avoid that drug for the most part. However, I am a major fan of cannabis even if it takes more of the plant to provide myself and others similar effects that a different user gets with a smaller dose. For the longest time I was convinced that the cannabis edibles didn’t work on myself and others at all. I would take huge doses of cannabis distillate oil however could only ever suppose slightly intoxicated afterward. One of our close friends told myself and others that I needed to try RSO before I totally wrote-off taking cannabis edibles. I didn’t even suppose what RSO was at first. I found out that it is made by running a strong solvent through cannabis flower buds. Periodically ethanol is used, other times it is a proprietary blend or carbon dioxide. Once the solvent has been purged, the extraction process is finished. With distillate oil, the winterization process destroys many of the terpenes plus cannabinoids that could otherwise be present in the crude oil product prior to this stage. The crude hemp oil is the RSO that our acquaintance was raving about. Sure enough, I tried 100mg of RSO plus blasted through the stratosphere after it kicked in about an hour later.
