i’ve made pg infusions using various “dank” hops pellets and flowers (fresh), can’t remember what strains or even my source but they MUST be fresh because the flowers/pellets tend to lose potency rather quickly. even in vacuum-sealed bags.
so anyways, i guess what i was going for was an authentic MJ-type flavor and it was very accurate…i guess…on second thought, i might have made it too strong (i.e. by letting it steep too long in the hops and possibly from failing to dilute the finished product…just fyi it was a green-honey color and much thicker consistency than plain pg once i let it soak for 2 weeks and then strained off the plant matter). but anyways, i think i soaked it too long or something because not only did i transfer the piney/citrusey/skunky notes, but i also got some of the bitterness from the hops. and personally i didn’t like this. it actually made for a stale beer note, and if i remember correctly, this was fixed by dilution after the fact.
but regardless, it tasted very MJ-like but i stopped experimenting because i didn’t like the idea of vaping nicotine that smelled like i was smoking pot. just a personal preference i guess and i really didn’t want to get “busted” for doing something relatively silly. I guess i kinda discovered that the taste of weed is sorta pungent and not all that enjoyable when it has zero effect.
but i will say this as an aside. hops itself has some medicinal value as a sedative (not much but still). and as i chain-vaped my undiluted hops extract, i most definitely began to feel a weird sedating effect that I cannot explain other than to say that i didn’t really like it. and iirc it made my throat kinda hurt too. maybe this will answer some of your questions…
