    Question Cannabrex?

    I'm wondering if anyone has used the Cannabrex system. I know they're a sponsor and I wrote to them but never got a response. I tried posting on cannabisculture's forum but haven't had any responses.
    I like the idea, especially that you can do an odorless extraction. I'd just like to hear from some users before sinking any cash into it. Would want to know, also, if their 3x potency booster works.

    I have their 3x kit, and it's pretty easy to use, but I can't give a good evaluation yet because the meds I used were very early pickings so there isn't much of the euphoric effect that I normally know - and that's all I have to go on for effect. I will have to take a look at it again later and let everyone know how it goes.

    I have made my own capsules in the past, but their system is a lot cleaner than what I made. Their 3x booster is bioperine (sp?), and you can read up on it with a search. Supposed to help absorption of food & meds, so I assume that it would help.

    Hopefully someone else can give you a review that's of more help at this point in time.

    I also have the 3X kit. Very simple to use and it works rather nicely. I have never enjoyed a Roger Clemens pitchedHouston Astros game (a couple of week ago) as much as I did after taking a few caps! My only complaint is that I need to order some more 3x powder and the oil. I made three Gold formula batches using kif. I know that the kif would have lasted longer if smoked, but the caps are a real nice change of pace.

    Thanks for the replies!
    I don't have good access to hash or oil so would be using bud. If and when I order their kit, I'll be sure to report.
    After years of smoke, I have to confess I've never eaten any form of weed. I does have promise, though. The downside is dosage.....I envision stealthily eating some *whatever* only to find myself way too out there!

    Do you lose any yield after turning them into the capsuls?

    You do not lose any yield as it can all be stuffed into caps.

    Default Report: First Try

    I've now used and tested this product with one batch. I used some potent hashplant buds, gold formula with the 3x booster.
    First tip: make sure the product is WELL ground at each step. My final mixture was a bit fluffy. Its difficult to completely fill the capsules. I found their tamper to be ineffective and used an old pen to ram the caps full. It takes patience.
    Yesterday I tried four caps. Onset was very slow, taking hours to reach full effect. Once in place, the buzz lasted for hours. What a hoot! No sneaking a smoke. No smell. Just discreetly swallow a few caps. I would advise caution, though cuz once it comes on, it comes on hard!
    Using the extract recipes is probably best. I found it difficult to measure the amounts called for if one doesn't have a scale with 0.1g resolution.
    All in all, a great product!

    OB, Cannabrex is quite a different experience from eating cannabis in other forms such as butter or made into candies and what not.... for one it hits a lot faster because of the oil it uses causing improved accelerated absorption, for another it does not last quite as long because of the faster absorption. finally, the boosters in the 3x formula (ginger extract and piperine aka black pepper extract) would become quite unpleaseant to eat if in the same concentration in a food and they really work making your oral cannabis more economical (until you factor in the price of the cannabrex! lol)

    You can buy about everything for this without going through cannabrex. You need some capsules.

    If I remember correctly you can source peperine in pill form, then grind it down or just take one with your capsules. (Peperine aids in absorption during digestion.)

    Also the starch filler is basically modified food starch, just take corn starch and cook it up with water. Bring to a boil and then pour out on a tray or silicon mat to let it dry. Then grind that with a coffee grinder. It won't get all messy like normal corn starch now.

    Coconut oil is a good replacement for the oil that they provide. You can also use something like olive oil if you want, but the coconut would be the best choice.

    Add a little ground ginger powder to the mix.

    That's mostly it. It's a very good system for people who need a mobile, non-smoked source of meds.

    Peperine is the only thing I cannot find at my local herbal store.
    Any links to online sources?

    I Used Cannabrex Prior to my Intestinal Op, And Highly reccomend Them
    Of Course You Can Concoct Your Own Meds ( Using Grapeseed Oil ) , But I Did Like Cannabrex And cannabrex A.M
    I Cannot Ingest Cannabis Anymore , And Implore Anyone From Eating Wet, Or Chlorophyl Active cannabis
    I Have Always Known That Ingesting Cannabis Is So Much More Potent And Long Acting Than Smoking
    I Learnt Through " The hasheaters " That Tearooms , And The Colour Blue Evoke A Much More Intense High
    ( Before Coffee Shops, Like In Amsterdam, Tearooms Were All The Rage
    Painted Blue, With Adornments Of naked Women , These Were Places Frequented By Such Artists As Van Goch , And Many Other Artists And Writers
    Whose Ideas And Perspectives Now Command Millions And Millions of Pounds ( Or Billions Of Dollars )
    Cannabrex Is Great
    However ; Please DO NOT TAKE ON EMPTY STOMACHE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bioperine is what you should look for. Here's an example: (I'm not endorsing this retailer or particular product)

    i'm not old bear but here's mine...

    -put a chuck of chocolate in a bowl with some cannabutter.

    -heat in microwave for several 15 second intervals. stir after each heating until blended together. you can also melt them together over the stove with a double pot set up.

    -pour into molds ....if you have deep moulds you can add items within the mould. ex. pour a layer of chocolate on the bottom of the mould. place in fridge til hard. add an almond, a candy or any other treat you may enjoy. maybe make that center another cannabutter item if you want. pour chocolate over item until mould is full.

    -place in fridge til hard. remove and enjoy.
