Here’s a quick guide on making Green or Golden Dragon with your weed or vaped remains. Green Dragon is a liquid extraction of fresh Cannabis while Golden Dragon is a liquid extraction of vaped remains. You can drop the liquid extract in any food or drink and get a great high. I’ll outline the process as simply as possible. It may look complex, but it’s actually quite easy.
What you need:
- A flat pan that can hold about 2 inches of water
- High proof alcohol, the higher the better. We use Bacardi 151 which is 75.5% alcohol.
- Cannabis (3.5 grams of good quality) or vaped remains (7 grams)
- A small jar
- A cooking thermometer
- A filtering device – coffee filters work great
- Something to dump the filtered liquid into (jar, bowl, etc.)
* You must use alcohol which is intended for consumption.
(don’t use isopropyl and etc.)
Green Dragon with Fresh Weed
For Green Dragon, it is best to use about an eighth (3.5 grams) with 2 ounces of your high grade alcohol. You’ll need to decarboxylate the bud before continuing. This is pretty simple and can be done in the oven.
- Grind up the Cannabis
- Place in a pan in the oven at 325°F for 5 minutes and prepare for your kitchen to smell strongly of weed
Don’t worry about burning it or losing potency. It’s not hot enough for those things to happen. Remove your Cannabis from the oven and continue with Golden Dragon steps (except you’ll be using your weed from the oven of course). We don’t need to do this with vaped remains because they’re already decarboxylated from the heat of the vaporizer.
Golden Dragon with Vaped Remains
- Fill up the pan with about 2 inches of water and begin to boil it
- In the jar, mix about 7 grams of vaporized remains with 3.5-4 ounces of the alcohol
- Place the jar in the boiling water and maintain the temperature of the Cannabis/rum mixture at 170°F for 20 minutes – you want the mixture to simmer but not boil fast
- Remove mixture and strain out the liquid into a cup
That’s all it takes. Now you can move the liquid to a tincture and have an extremely easy, portable, and stealthy way to get high. And yes, these tinctures have the potential to get you really high.
So some people in the comments were wondering about the dosage. Keep in mind that you need to self-titrate with the dosage. You may be more/less sensitive to it than others. For me, 1 dropper pinch of Green Dragon gets me a great high that lasts pretty long and doesn’t leave me wanting more. To get to a good point with Golden Dragon, I usually take 2.5-3 dropper pinches.
1 dropper pinch is about a milliliter. So with 3.5 grams of Green Dragon extracted into an ounce (29.5 milliliters) of solution, you could get an awesome high each day for about a month.
