RIP grandaddy black. I was spreading her branches out today and noticed a few pollen sacs forming. I grabbed a magnifying glass and peeled one open with a needle to be sure. Definitely growing some bananas. Pulled her up and disposed of her. A lot of work down the drain but sometimes it be like that..... I think I caught it before it dropped pollen.

As always fastbuds genetics did not disappoint on this gsc. It is quite a bit different than the last gsc I grew. It has a smooth relaxing stone to it. Great smoke for insomnia. Taste is sweet and fruity. Not as pungent as most gsc. I got a little over 7 oz and the trim produced a lot of trichomes that I extracted with everclear to make some golden dragon. Turned it into some potent gummies and hash balls. Will definitely be running this strain again

I have had some questions about making the golden dragon tincture and making gummies so I thought I would share my methods in hopes that people will get some use out of their frosty trim and popcorn buds...
FIRST OFF GRAIN ALCOHOL AND THE FUMES ARE OBVIOUSLY VERY FLAMMABLE SO SAFETY FIRST. ONLY USE AN ELECTRIC BURNER AND GOOD VENTILATION IS A MUST IF YOU EVER COOK YOUR TINCTURE DOWN.

To make some golden dragon tincture you will need some frosty trim and/or buds(I use an ounce per batch), everclear or equivalent 95% grain alcohol(ONLY USE CONSUMABLE ALCOHOL), coffee filter, paint strainer bag, mason jars, parchment paper.

1. Put your everclear in the freezer (the alcohol will not freeze)
2. Grind your dried trim or buds.
3. You must decarb anytime you are making edibles. If you dont decarb then the entire process is a waste of time! It wont get you high without decarbing. Thinly spread your trim on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Cover with foil and Cook is the oven at 200f for an hour. Let it cool before uncovering and your decarb is done.
4.Put your trim in a mason jar and freeze it for a few hours.

5. Remove your trim and everclear from the freezer and pour enough everclear into your trim to cover it about an inch over and put the lid on your jar.
6. Shake the jar vigorously as hard as you can for 3 minutes. Then place your paint strainer over the top with a rubber band and pour it through your coffee filter into another mason jar or whatever you plan to store it in. Set the coffee filter aside to dry and you will be able to collect the trichomes that collected in it. The alcohol that strained through the filter is your ready to use tincture for any kind of edibles you want to use it in. You can leave the lid off to evaporate some of the alcohol if you want a stronger tincture.

Now we need some edibles. Gummies are great because they are strong, easy to dose, and easy to store.
I have tried a few recipes and this is the best tasting ones I have come up with. You will need...
1 box any flavor jello (3 oz)
2.5 packages (1/4 oz) unflavored gelatin
1 tbsp honey
1/3 cup fruit juice (no citrus)
1 tsp flavor extract ( I prefer lemon)
1/4 to 1/2 cup golden dragon tincture
Gummy molds or parchment paper.

Step1: REMEMBER THE ALCOHOL IS FLAMMABLE. NO GAS STOVES OR OPEN FLAMES!
Mix your flavored gelatin with the unflavored gelatin in a bowl
2. In a separate bowl mix your fruit juice with your honey.
3 Pour the juice/honey mixture into the gelatin. Mix and set aside.
4. In a nonstick pan heat your tincture over low heat until most of the alcohol is evaporated and you have a thick syrup texture.(this is hash oil)
5. Add your flavor extract to the pan and stir it in.
6. Add your gelatin juice mixture to the pan and stir over medium heat just until the gelatin is disolved. Remove from heat and pour into your molds or you can pour it onto parchment paper and let it set for an hour. Then just enjoy! I use 1/2 cup of the tincture and this batch of gummies is strong! 5 grams gets me high as a kite for most the day. Someone that doesn't smoke got sick on 4 grams so be careful with the dosing. Start slow and give them an hour to kick in before taking more. They are potent!!

Want to skip the edibles and make some hash balls? Here is how I do it..
1. Follow the same method of making the alcohol tincture but you can skip the decarb since you will be smoking it.

2 once you have your tincture I use a glass Pyrex pie pan. Get a pot of boiling water and place your glass pan on top of it creating a double broiler. This stops you from overheating the hash. Pour your tincture into the glass pan and cook on medium until all of the alcohol evaporated and you have a waxy sludge on the bottom. Scrape all of the waxy sludge from the bottom of the pan and I collect it on a spoon. I let it sit overnight and it should be firm enough to roll into balls in your hand. If it is too sticky then let it sit for another day until the texture is hard enough to handle. That's all there is to it. Hope this helps you guys and girls get some use out of your trim and trash buds! Enjoy and remember safety first with the alcohol. You can store your tincture in a dark cool place indefinitely.

UPDATE...Chocolates! Mmmmmm so I have been making a lot of tincture and experimenting with making the best tasting ways to utilize it for edibles. I decided to try some chocolates. They taste delicious and are easy to make. Show up to Christmas dinner with a bag of these you will be grandma's new favorite! :joy::innocent:
What you need..
2 (4oz) packages bakers chocolate (I like white)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup shredded sweet coconut or coconut macaroon candies
1/4 to 1/2 cup golden dragon tincture

Cook your tincture down to a syrup the same as if you were making gummies.
Chop up the cocolate bars and throw them in the pan with your cooked down tincture and melt on low. As soon as it is melted, mix in your pecans and coconut then remove from heat and pour onto parchment paper. Throw them in the freezer for a few minutes then you just chop them up. These really taste good and they get you high as a kite!! You can obviously leave the pecans out, use different nuts, or whatever you think will taste good. Same with the coconut... enjoy!!
