    Making drinkable marijuana or (Green Dragon):

    Green Dragon is an alcohol/THC based drink. It is
    very simple to make and has very pleasurable effects.

    How does it Work?
    Well, the active ingredient in marijuana is THC, which
    is not a water-soluble compound. So, the THC has to
    be extracted using alcohol and then added to food
    and/or liquid that can then be entered directly to
    your system through the digestive tract rather than
    through the lungs. This type of consumption of
    marijuana tends to be both slower and more efficient
    than smoking it. Further the unpleasant effects of
    smoking heated smoke are completely eliminated. For
    these reasons this is the favored method of marijuana
    consumption by many people.

    The highest proof alcohol available should be used.
    (Everclear is suggested)

    Method One:
    To do this you must obtain the highest proof alcohol
    available. This allows for the best results. 190
    proof is highly recommended.
    Then one must then obtain marijuana.

    Rule of Thumb: (About one half gram per ounce of
    Remember, the more the merrier. After one has these
    materials, they can begin.

    First break up the marijuana and take out all seeds.
    You may leave the stems. Then open the bottle of
    alcohol and pour about a forth out. This will allow
    room for the weed. Then carefully add all broken up
    herbal matter into the bottle. Put the cap back on
    and shake. Now, store it in a safe area and let it
    sit for approximately 2 to 3 weeks. After the long
    awaited wait, pour the green tinted substance into
    another container through a strainer. You may use a
    coffee filter.
    The final product is high proof alcohol laced with
    high amounts of pure THC.

    One may drink the product straight, but this is not
    recommended. A common way of consumption is to mix
    three parts 7-Up with one part Green Dragon and a
    dollop of honey stirred in. Served over ice.

    A faster method is to heat the alcohol to a
    sub-boiling temperature and stir in the crushed
    marijuana. Great deal of care should be taken if this
    method is chosen, as the alcohol is highly flammable.

    Use an electric stove.
    Put the alcohol in a pan, and put that pan into a pot
    of boiling water (thereby heating the alcohol safely.)
    Avoid using an open flame.
    Heat the alcohol with herbal mixture in the microwave
    at half power for approximately 11 to 16 minutes or
    until liquid is an emerald shade of light green.
    This is method of heating should be a last resort.

    First, heat up alcohol using any method. Then stir in
    the crushed herbal blend while alcohol is at
    sub-boiling temperatures and let sit. Stirring every
    couple of minutes. This should take no longer then 25
    minutes. Turn off stove and let cool. Then take the
    product and strain it. A coffee filter works just

    Use rubber gloves when straining the liquid. If you
    are using a coffee filter, make sure to squeeze any
    extra liquid out of the marijuana mesh; this is where
    most of the liquid THC is still hiding.

    Consumption Notes:

    If you wish you could pour the final product into a
    bowl of cherries and let sit over night in the
    refrigerator. Then strain and keep liquid. What this
    does is lets the cherries become saturated in the Green Dragon. One may then eat the cherries to
    become drunk and high. Doses range from 20 to 40
    cherries. Now, the liquid is still good, use it to
    make mixed drinks and/or other methods of consumption.
    (Consider making Jell-o shots.) Enjoy

    TheApprentices special recipe:wink:
    1/2 ounce cannabis
    1/5 liter 95% ethanol (190 proof)

    Grind the cannabis into a fine powder. Put into light-proof glass container with the ethanol and let sit for 2-10 weeks, shaking daily. For a unique zing, add 1 tablespoon of lemon or orange zest with the cannabis and ethanol. Serve chilled in a cold glass with 3 ice cubes, 1 shot of Green Dragon, 3 shots of citrus soda (like Sprite or 7UP), and a teaspoon of honey.
