I want to make super potent oil and am considering doing a nice 6-9 hour cook @ 225F, straining it and cooking it in new material for the same time/temp, in an attempt to double the strength. Any reason thin shouldn't work?

I am working with coconut oil and am using 1oz(very high quality trim)/1.5 cups of oil, because the plant matter in cook 1 and 2 will both absorb their shares and I expect to end up with 1 cup.

I would really appreciate any tips or feedback. I am planning on having batches of oil cooked once and twice, lab tested to calculate diminished returns on running the oil twice.

when calculating yield would you include all microns extracted or just the good stuff at 45 and 75? I am planning on making candy and used 220, 160, 120, 75 and 25 micron bags.

I love this project and am just happy for the chance to buy more so cheap. i don't know how to show the transaction here but i'm super psyched for the future of the decentralized internet.

Good for you, I went ahead and picked up more today as well.

You do have a secure place to hold that SUB right? Not keeping it on an exchange or anything right?

I have designed a cake pan I am really proud of, But I am not a social media pro. I understand the need to draw people to see my campaign, but is it necessary? Wont my product get enough natural views on the crowdfunding site alone if it is a good product?

From my research, there are two ways to have successful Kickstarter campaign.

1) have a strong social media following that you can harness before launching your campaign

2) get extremely lucky

You can only influence one of those options.

Being a good product alone isn't enough. Im pretty sure that the bulk of attention Kickstarter helps generate for their creators is based off of algorithms that track how much attention they are getting naturally. This is why it's so important to bring a crowd with you when you launch. There are so many projects out there, it's really difficult to stand out and get noticed on your own.

I'd recommend getting your product out in front of as many people who would be interested in it as possible, and just create a fan page on Facebook for people to follow you. It will likely take some time to accumulate a large enough following, but you have to start somewhere.

If you can also post semi-relevant stuff to that page periodically (ideally regularly but intermittently) that should help your page grow. The most important part is having a hub that can accumulate fans that you can use to contact them when you do launch.

ya its tough, no one will give me the time of day. All the popular influencers are too busy for my little project.

I don't know if there are trade shows you can go to where you can show off your product. Maybe a local grocery store will be able to work with you allowing you to setup a small temporary booth? I'm not sure if showing off your stuff at a Maker Faire makes sense. Even just having a facebook page would have allowed people seeing this post to have the opportunity to follow you, but if you have absolutely zero web presence then you're going to have a super tough time building a following.

I only have 3d prints and pics so far, not a real working model.

I recently birthed a new product, but I did not design it. I imagined it and drew it out. I found some 3d modelling pros on fiverr and set out designing a viable product. I've seen lots of campaigns where people describe in detail who the team involved in the product and campaign are, In an effort to display their cred. What do you think? Can my campaign succeed If I don't have a corporate grade crew of industry professionals? Is there a chance that people will judge my product on its simple merits and be able to see past my inexperience? All i've created is a cake pan with a unique shape. My focus was simple in it's design, I wanted to make sure that the cake will fall out easily if you flip it over, And that the shape is a very obvious and recognizable as the shape it is intended to resemble. I used Fiverr talent because I didn't have a lot of money. It took three different designers and a dozen revisions to get it right but I finally have a beautiful product and I'm excited to be able to offer it. The manufacturer I chose has a lot of certifications and experience making cake pans in the material I have chosen. I have spent a year perfecting it and have ordered several 3d prints as I progressed so I could hold it in my hands and see it up close. I also had a short explainer animation made with a humorous script by an animation student I met on Fiverr. I have learned that bringing a new product to life, means being an amature in a lot of different fields. Does a year of internet education and a few thousands hours agonizing over getting it right and learning about things like draft angles and compression molding pros and cons with a steel molds vs an aluminum molds even amount to a few college grade credits? The key reward I chose is unique, nostalgic, relevant and as valuable as my product. I have figured out how to reduce my north american shipping costs by almost 70%. If I outsourced my project instead of collaborating with a formal team is my campaign any less viable?

I think credentials are important for complex technological items, but not for something as simple as a cake pan. The proof is in the pudding. If you can demonstrate that it slides out easily, is made of quality, non-toxic materials, and is attractive and is at a good price, then you could be a high-school dropout. Just focus on the product.

Just my two cents, others may disagree but you came up with the idea and sketched the original design therefore you are the designer as long as you didn't rip off a pre-existing design. You then enlisted people with the right skills to develop your design into what you think is a marketable product. Most products are brought to market this way, the fact that you used fiverr to outsource is pretty irrelevant IMO.

You also have other points you can market your product on: It's ease of use/unique function, the fact you spent a year refining it are good starting points.

Finally, just about every celebrity chef has a cake tin with their name on it, do you think Gordon Ramsey spent 100's of hours pissing about with 3D modelling software to design his range? My guess is he was probably too busy screaming at failing restaurant owners to do that. In fact he probably had less to do with the design process than you did. He still owns the IP on those products though.

thank you for the feedback. :)

Also just my opinion, but I don't personally think not having a big team should be an issue. What does bother me is that in all you have written I don't see how you intend to actually manufacture these cake tins. You need to convice me that you can actually deliver.

It's cool that you've studied and know about draft angles, having a few prototypes so you can have a greater understanding is also a benefit but what you really need is to get in contact with a mold maker and a press operator and get some real numbers and quotes and timeframes to know where you actually stand.

With genuine quotes and a clear plan (business, engineering, etc.) Show that you've done your due diligence and convince me you can actually deliver. In the end, team or no team it's your idea and your name you're putting out there so whatever it is make sure it's something you're proud of and you will likely be fine.

On a side note, I will be launching a campaign in the near future and a competitor in my space beat me to the punch and had a successful campaign. Within a week one of the co-founders left for personal reasons, yeah right. Trouble in paradise and now the project is many months overdue without an update this entire year so far. Know that teams can also be a liability.

If you want to go fast, go alone

It sounds like you have a pretty clear vision and aren't afraid to seek professionals and professional opinions (very important). I'll end by saying "If you think you're 90% there, know that the last 10% is 90% of the battle." I hope this helps some and good luck with your campaign!

This is the feedback I needed, so thank you. As far as manufacturing, I chose to source a manufacturer via alibaba. I posted my 3d file and took quotes from 20 or more companies and then started comparing them and learning about their credentials and processes. I had to learn about compression molding and timing as far as the cycles they use in mold creation and getting my product in the queue. I really focused on the certifications of the manufacturer as well as the items they already make and the their user rating as a manufacturer. I have been quoted on 500 piece runs. the per piece price and the cost of the creation of the mold varied greatly from company to company. In the end I chose the company that had the best communication. In the beginning I found language barrier to be difficult when trying to convey my needs, but I found someone who communicated rapidly and clearly. They offered me a two week turnaround on the creation of the mold and offered to send me some samples before we go forward on the 500 pieces. After approval of the mold it will take 2 weeks to get me into the queue and a few days to make my pans. From the manufacturer to the dock/ship will take a week and the crossing will take 2-3 weeks. Am i missing anything? Other factors I am not considering?

Try steeping some tea with cold water overnight in your fridge and drink in the morning. Very refreshing.

Both of them seem to want to thrust mankind's technology forward and bring us closer to the utopian place we dream or wish for. They were both geniuses. But after the home battery device, it's clear that all great dreamers sometimes pursue, invent and sell tech based on nothing more than their hard earned cred, instead of the divinely guided epiphany some if us would like to imagine Elon is inspired by. In this way, I see a similarity to Gaius. I just hope that in my lifetime we colonize another planet, and I think he might be the guy. If you read this, good luck dude.

I have a unique technique for decarboxylation I call a double decarb. The result is edibles that will breach the blood brain barrier in 20-25 minutes rather that 40+ like others do. I discovered this technique like most good things, completely by accident. I had been trying to learn to make cannabutter for about a month and had already created about 8 pounds of butter before I learned about decarbing. So I had only one choice if I wanted to rescue my butter. I looked up the flash point of butter, which is 350°F. I only needed to get it to 293 for 10-12 mins according to decarboxylation charts. So what I decided to do was put all 8 pounds in a pot with a candy thermometer and set my stove element to high until the thermometer read 293°F and removed the pot from the heat. To test the result, I ingested a table spoon of the butter orally. And I can only describe the experience as being drunk on weed. It was heady AF and I started to feel it after only about 20 mins. After that test I baked the rest into 15g cookies and sold hundreds of them to a dispensary and friends for a few months. I was afraid once it ran out because I was unsure if I could reproduce the same effect. So I went back to the lab (my kitchen) and did the process as I do to this day.

I use 1 ounce of trim with about a 20% popcorn to leaf ratio to 1 pound of non salted butter. I decarb on parchment and a baking sheet at @ 293°F for 12 mins then I cook in a slow cooker a lot of water for a total of 12 hours. 1 hour at high then simmer for 11 After I strain it off and harden it in the fridge it goes into a pot and I bring it to 293°F then let it cool. I believe this has the effect of concentrating the butter by cooking off excess water so my butter is denser than what most people bake with.
This should help with impatient people not double dosing, Try it and let me know what you think. I would especially appreciate if someone with a biochem type background could fill me in on why my now not so secret sauce works so well. Happy Baking

I'm curious what it's like once it's baked into something? I'm thinking a teaspoon of butter would probably be processed by your digestive tract at a higher rate than something combined with protein and carbohydrates. I do like your solution for fixing a non-decarbed batch.

If you want up the flashpoint of your butter or make it less likely to burn you can clarify before using it. The first thing to burn in butter are the milk solids.

ya your right, I always skim off the cream before I add the plant matter.

are you using a lot of water? I do because it makes the ground up pieces larger so I don't get much particulate in my butter/oils. also after straining the plant matter, boil another pot of water 6-8 cups and pour it over the plant matter in the strainer/cheese cloth for a higher yield. the water can be poured off after anyhow so... good luck.

I've baked thousand of cookies @375° F. it is safe. Did you decarboxylate the bud first?

looks solid. did you code it?
