I started this thread on behalf of his pet turtle (Orion) because there seems to be very limited discussion in this forum relating to cooking with synthetic cannabinoids. Orion would like to experiment with cooking (or otherwise preparing) dishes infused with JWH-018, and possibly other synthetic cannabinoids as well. For the scope of this post, Orion will discuss JWH-018 as it's the only synthetic cannabinoid he has experience with. From what Orion has read, it seems the JWH-018 is soluble in a similar fashion to THC: it's fat* and alcohol soluble (*reference needed, see below). With that in mind, Orion was thinking of doing some experimenting with using JWH-018 in prepared food dishes. The obvious problem this presents to Orion is that the vaporization point of JWH-018 is quite low. His guess is that if he puts it into some food (for instance, cake or brownie mix), the heat from cooking said mixture may result in all the JWH-018 simply vaporizing/evaporating, or otherwise degrading the quality of the cannabinoid. For this reason, Orion would only consider cold recipes unless another swimmer can verify that the JWH-018 wouldn't simply evaporate or degrade from the heat of cooking. If Orion were to attempt this, he obviously wouldn't just callously toss a bit of JWH-018 crystals into the mix. Since the JWH-018 is fat and alcohol soluble, a couple of methods might be used to infuse the JWH-018 into the food. The goal would be to create as homogeneous a mixture as possible by dissolving the JWH-018 into some vegetable oil or butter, which would then be used in whichever recipe one desired. The other method would be dissolving the JWH-018 into some alcohol, which would be added as such. Again, the recipes used would likely be something cold (cake icing, or some type of spread) instead of something actually meant to be baked/cooked. The idea would be to add JWH-018 enhanced ingredients after the cooking, to "Spice" it up a bit (pun intended). Do any swimmers out there have experience with cooking, or otherwise preparing synthetic cannabinoids for oral use (other than just taking it in the pure form)? This thread could also be used to post information/experiences about cooking with any of the smoking blends on the market. However, please refrain from using this thread to discuss orally ingesting synthetic cannabinoids or smoking blends in their pure form. Edit: Since originally starting this topic for my pet turtle, he has done some reading and Orion can't seem to locate the source where he originally read, or at least thought he read, where JWH-018 is a fat soluble compound. Can any swimmers provide a reference for JWH-018 being fat soluble?
