I noticed your plants were very bushy. Are you "S" curl shaping them? Everytime I have ever Johnny Appleseeded my property, they grow 8-9-10 feet tall! Be nice to condense that.
that is because I top them 5 or 6 times right up to flowering. Then if they still get to big I supercrop them

This^^^^^^^^ As it was explained to me (dummy) to get high you need to take the THCA and get rid of the A leaving only the THC. This is done by heating it.

Is that an ok layman's explanation @ruprecht ?
Yep. Oxidation and time will do it too. THC will further convert to CBN, aka sleepy time stuff. Old weed generally has higher CBN content.

I would like to make some CBD oil for a friend who is going through chemo. He really doesn't like to get high but the oil helps his nausea. Any thoughts on how I could convert my THC laden pot into CBD oil with little THC content would be appreciated.

Wait a minute, that's a very nice thing to do, maybe I have read you all wrong. Maybe you're not a closeted Trump supporter doing something so unselfish, good for you.

I have nothing to say to help, you guys are in advanced chemistry and I'm in intro to basic science.

I like to take a couple of tokes at night, when it's just the wifey and I. I enjoy sitting on the porch doing that over having drinks more often than not. Then we tell stories, get "deep," philosophically, and go play chess/watch a movie or she'll read and I'll play on my Martin Guitar.

I don't play with hash, oils, tincture or anything like that. Just regular, old, "flower."

@ruprecht

Question for you. If I do not decarb before making some oil via the alcohol method will he still derive the benefits of the CBD's? I am trying to reduce the THC and boost the CBD and I am not sure how to do it.

How do the different strains/plants get their names?

Like if @truthbedamned starts growing one, can he just name it like "Batman X" or what's the deal there?

Sorry, I missed this. Short answer, remediating THC is not practical at home. You need equipment that will selectively isolate certain cannabinoids. Plus if the CBD content isn't there in the first place it would be all for nothing. I can recommend a couple brands I trust if you like. Tincture or does he smoke?

No He does not smoke. I am going to try using an ounce of White Widow that is about a year old and hopefully that does it. He doesn't know I am doing this so if it fails no big deal.

Thanks

If I was smart enough to take 2 different strains and cross them sure I would. But guess what? Me no smart.😬🙄
it takes a lot of generations of backcrossing to get stable genetics with a new cross. the shit is not that hard, but it takes a long time

was your whole veg cycle outside?

Do you supplement with light overnight?
I have 2 different methods. I do outside and also have hydroponics. My hydroponics uses a 18-6 veg and a 12-12 flower. My outside is left to nature but inside the safety of a greenhouse.
