These are the figures for "under a high vacuum". Like 1 mmHg or thereabouts.

In the weed that has been decarbed, prior to that it was THCA correct?
Sorry missed this. You are correct. THCA (orally inert) extrudes carbon dioxide and becomes THC (orally active).

I come from a family of moonshiners and have built and used several reflux stills . I always just used high proof 94 % wash the thc out and cook off the alcohol works great just decarb it first .
Seriously this 10% correct!! ^

It's a no brainier.
Decarb pot wash in alcohol, throw pot away, evaporate alcohol and have edible concentrate left in the dish.

I suppose, if you do not decarb first you could dab the concentrate or decarb after concentrating it.. But eating it will do jack shit unless you decarb it.

This is the most basic stoner science their is! ;(

"Any goodness you put in the still pot ( which is the vessel that is boiled) will stay there. Although the lower terpenes will probably steam-distill and give the spirit an interetsing odor and flavor."

Exactly what appears to have happened. I say "Appears" because I haven't had lab tests but @150proof I can taste the terps in the Green Crack and it's delicious!

I found the answer watching the show moonshiners. You still need to decarb first then instead of putting the buds into the distiller, you make a gin double/triple distiller like this.moonshine gin pot.jpg

How tempting it sounds. Three years ago, I would have immediately been eager to try it. But right now, the very word cannabis makes me sick. It's just that I used to be very addicted to marijuana. I started with the usual medicinal cannabis, and then it all turned into an addiction. At one time, everything was fine with me until I noticed inappropriate behavior behind me. I began to have attacks of aggression more and more often. My loved ones were scared by my behavior and turned to Abbeycare. I have undergone a course of treatment, and now I am even afraid to touch cannabis.
Look I don't like to curse while typing. And I try not to do it too often when I speak. But when I read troll drivel, such as this, I am compelled to call BULL SHIT! please take that stuff somewhere else....

As to the subject at hand, just do the Decarb, extract the oil and then use that to add to what ever you like.
I once took over 9.5 grams of decarbed hash dissolved it all into a smallish amount of alcohol and then added it to a batch of honey apple stout I had made. Woo-hoo what a potent pint that made for. In a 5 gallon batch that ended up being almost a quarter gram of hash per pint. It was a little too awesome.
I went back and cut it in half by using some more cider water and then back flavoring it a bit.
It was still pretty strong after 2 or 3, lol...
