Listen, if you want to produce pot butter that really works, you don't need to be a cannabis expert or a great cook. You just need to be patient, organized, and well-informed in your endeavor. At the end of the day, producing cannabis butter is nothing more than a time- and resource-saving method of ingesting marijuana.
It does not draw attention to itself, it is adaptable, and it is simple to use. I also really like how cannabutter contributes to reducing the negative connotations associated with marijuana, particularly in the black community. To me, it is of the utmost importance that middle-aged black women, such as my great Auntie Mildred, who is 80 years old, have access to choices like cannabis edibles, which may help them find respite from the symptoms of pain.
You may make infused sesame chili oil to pour on rice meals or boosted coconut oil to use for your next face oil mask by using the same techniques that you use to make marijuana butter. Both of these can be utilized in the same way.
- According to a rough translation, the following recipe yields about 30 milligrams of THC per tablespoon of oil or butter.
- Your ideal dosage may be different, but the average is 10 milligrams.
- After waiting for roughly an hour, you should start by tasting a quarter of a teaspoon of the cannabis butter you made.
- Keep track of how you are feeling and listen to what your body has to say about whether this is an appropriate quantity, if you need more, or whether you require less.
- Choosing to err on the side of caution will increase the likelihood that you will truly enjoy yourself and have a good time overall.
The first step is called decarboxylation.
You will need to begin by decarboxylating your cannabis as the initial step in your process. Baking your cannabis, which is often referred to as "decarbing," activates the cannabinoids inside it, including THC, CBD, and any other that may be present. Also, it makes it easier for the lipids in the butter and oil to attach to your plant, which results in the best possible cannabis infusion.
What you'll need is:
- A half-ounce of marijuana.
- Hand grinder or scissors
- a baking dish or sheet pan made of glass
How to proceed:
- Prepare the oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
- You may use a hand grinder, scissors, or just your hands to break apart the required quantity of cannabis until it reaches the ideal consistency for rolling a joint, which is fine but not too fine. Anything that is too small will be able to pass through the cheesecloth (or a joint, for that matter). You want the cannabutter and oil you make from your cannabis to be as spotless and transparent as possible.
- Spread the plant material you have chosen to use out in an even layer on the glass baking dish or sheet pan. If using weed that is old or of lower quality, place it on the center rack of the oven for 20 minutes; if using weed that has been cured and is of high quality, place it on the center rack for 45 minutes; and for anything that has been recently harvested and is still wet, place it on the center rack for 1 hour or more.
- It is important to keep a close eye on the marijuana while it is cooking in the oven and give it a little stir once every ten minutes to prevent it from burning. You will see that the color of the herb changes from a brilliant green to a dark brownish green during the course of the process. When this happens, you will know that the substance has decarboxylated.
- Cannabutter stove top infusion is the second step.
You can manufacture cannabis butter by following this process if you have some time, some fat, some weed, and a kitchen.
You will need:
- One and a half cups of water.
- 8 ounces of butter that has been clarified, melted butter, or oil
- 12 ounce of cannabis that has been decarboxylated
- Medium saucepan
- Wooden spoon
- Cheesecloth or a metal strainer, whatever you want.
How to proceed:
- Put the butter and water in a medium saucepan and cook them over a very low flame.
- After the butter has melted, stir in the cannabis that has been decarboxylated. Combine everything well with a wooden spoon, then cover with the lid.
- Allow the mixture to slowly simmer for a period of four hours. Make careful to give the butter a stir every half an hour to prevent it from becoming burned. If you have a thermometer, you should check to see that the temperature has not risen to more than 180 degrees.
- After waiting for four hours, pour the mixture into a container using cheesecloth or a wire strainer. Allow the butter to reach room temperature before using it. You may use it right away, or you can preserve it in a mason jar that is airtight in the refrigerator or freezer for up to six months.
I have been sneaking a tiny bit of marijuana into a bunch of other dishes.
In my most recent attempt to prepare this luscious Charred Raw Corn salad.
I blended one spoonful of olive oil that had been infused with cannabis with three tablespoons of virgin olive oil that did not contain cannabis. The total amount for the meal was thirty milligrams, and each portion included seven and a half milligrams.
It really blew my head. And it wasn't because I was high on marijuana.
In addition, I have this obsession with consuming hot soup throughout the whole year, and the soup that I most recently indulged in is a Chicken and Rice Soup that is flavored with Garlicky Chile Oil.
I added some marijuana to the garlic chile oil by substituting two teaspoons of regular vegetable oil with two tablespoons of sesame oil that had been infused with cannabis. Baked items, such as morning blondies or chocolate tahini brownies, may also benefit from the addition of a few tablespoons of oil that has been infused with flavorings.
