Yarntopia Treasures is on Maudie Mae and almost done. Again it's quite striped. I'm going to take a break from hand-painted warps. I know I said it before but this time I mean it. Laura was here last week and disagreed with me. She likes it.
I gave Laura three of the "towels" from my last sample warp as they were too narrow to be of use for me and I know she can use them in her cheese making. She called the other day and challenged me to weave these in turned taquete since it's a two-block weave. I'm mulling over the possibilities.
I went to Cannacopia first, mostly because I've driven by it and knew it's location. You enter a front waiting area and get checked in by the receptionist. The room was packed with people who looked for the most part like everyday people, not scary at all. At some point the door opens and out comes the customer and a "bud tender" calls the name of the next on the checked-in list. The actual transactions take place in an inner sanctum.
I need high CBD/low THC buds and after the tender realized that I was going to make my own medicine, he told me wasn't going to sell me weed but was referring me to another dispensary that is less costly. Wow! The second dispensary was The Herb Center and they grow their own, thus passing on the savings to their customers. My two bags weighed a total of 14 grams (1/2 ounce) and cost me $130. Clearly I needed to be careful with my preparation.
this recipe and set about to decarb my buds. Everything I read about making canna oil insisted that you not skip this step. I don't understand the chemistry but I did understand that this step makes the buds more potent and I reason that means I can use a smaller dose and make it last longer. Currently my dose is 1/2 teaspoon and I have two cups of oil. The next step is to learn how to grow my own so I can skip the dispensaries.
