Does anyone know if there is a way to isomerize the cannabinoids in Green Dragon?
I've found info about isomerizing honey oil, and I'm not interested in trying that. Those techniques involve a little more chemistry than I want to do. I'm looking for a standard kind of kitchen cooking technique that would boost the potency of Green Dragon, and does not involve solvents like butane or using hydrochloric acid or a chemistry apparatus like a reflux column, whatever that is.
I already use Master Wu's oven technique to decarboxylize the bud before extracting the Green Dragon. Now I'm looking for a similar kind of isomerization technique for Green Dragon. According to what I have read, isomerization for honey oil boosts the potency a lot, so I would like to try to do the same for Green Dragon. The honey oil processes that I have read about involve refluxing with hydrochloric acid, and as far as I understatnd it, that means you cook it in combination with HCl. Later you add a base to neutralize the HCl.
I'm wondering if the same thing could be accomplished with Green Dragon by simmering it with an acidic cooking ingredient like lemon juice or maybe a more concentrated citric acid. Does anyone have the chemistry background to know if this would work? I don't know enough chemistry to know what is really going on with the isomerization process, and I don't want to just try something on my Green Dragon if I'm not sure it will work.
