Cannabutter first timer...
    #3123507 - 09/11/04 09:35 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'd like to try eating herb for the first time. From what I understand, I should melt the butter with herb until the butter turns into a green color. Then I spread it on toast (or something). Question is...how much herb do I use for one person? I have dank bud...

Thanks!

Well, patience isn't one of my virtues, so I'm gonna try half a gram.

I measured out 0.43g, but will Country Crock work? Maybe I shouldn't do this while already high...

I've tried a couple ways and had mixed results.

For just one dose, leary biscuits are best! Cracker and a piece of cheese. How much you take depends a lot on the bud, but 1-2g is good to start with (spread it onto two or three if you want). I find the taste isn't too bad this way, tastes kind of like parsley or something.

Cannabutter I've made just heating the butter by itself and tossing in bud. I'm not sure how much to use for one person, we usually use 1/2-1 ounce for 1/2-1 cup of butter. Heat the butter in a small pot very slowly, be careful not to overheat it or you'll make a mess. Once the butter is melted throw finely ground bud in and sir. Keep the butter liquid, maybe even SLIGHTLY bubbling, for about 20-30 minutes. Longer is probably better, but you want to be careful not to burn the butter/bud or it will taste aweful. Keep an eye on the color of the butter and the smell: if it starts to turn brownish take it off the heat quickly. I don't think you have to strain out the bud, but I do either with a small tea strainer or just by spooning it out (make a sandwich of it, if you can eat it). I've had only great results with this, but we usually use it for things like brownies and cookies. Three tablespoons in brownie mix works nicely :wink:

You can also put the butter in a pot of rapidly boiling water and then throw the pot in. Cover and let it boil for at least 30 minutes. Longer is better, and you don't have to worry about burning as long as you don't boil the water off. When done boiling, strain the mix through a thin cloth and put it in the fridge for a couple hours. The butter will solidify on top of the water, you just scoop it off. I've had mixed results this way.

Don't use country crock, use butter.

Didn't you see the post about margarine and partially hydrogenated vegetable oil being one molecule away from plastic?  :smirk:

For informational purposes:
#1 trim or bammer, not dank.
#2 water along with butter for an hour or two
#3 1/4 oz per stick
#4 lots of water
#5 refrigerator overnight
#6 butter removed and dried off
#7 baked in a recipe that calls for a large amount of butter, so it becomes more active.
I've heard this method removes the nasty tasting stuff, putting it in the water layer, and the goodies go into the butter layer.
Oh, yeah, before putting in the refrigerator, strain trim/bammer out with a mesh strainer. A layer of kief or something will be stuck to the bottom of the butter the next day, wiping it off is probably essential, I would think it might harbor bacterial growth.

I would recommend not using dank bud for cooking, it's just not worth it. Firstly, it will taste of bud because really dank buds are really stanky. You should get a bunch of shitty ass weed and use that, remember to strain the butter with cheese cloth to get all that nasty crap out. Even if you can find a bunch of leaves and left over stuff from a harvest you can use that, because a lot of that stuff has smaller amounts of THC in it. Just my 2cents.

Nope, unless caramel uses butter!
I'm pretty sure the key is to cook it, I thinik that's what cause it to activale comepletely, I think the boiling makes it somewhat active, but not like taking that same butter and baking it in cookies or something. This method probably makes the taste almost undecipherable. I would bet that if this butter was melted in milk, and it came up to the top, and was drank, or was spread on toast, it would only be maybe 1/3 as active as if it was baked.

I have read that pot will become active if cooked at a low temp (like 120-140 degrees) for ten or twenty minutes. From there it would be likely that you could use 99% IPA to safely extract an active oil, and melt it in with the caramel, probably at 1/8- 1/4 gram of oil per caramel. That's if this bit of info is correct. I'm sure the oil would melt nicely with genle heat, as it does just by handling it. (Messy) IPA is a good choice, because it's not quite as explosive as butane. A good idea is to probably evaporate it under a fan in sunlight, rather than using heat, and risking a fire. 99% isopropyl is probably available at a local drug store for swabbing injection sites and wounds.

http://www.overgrow.com/growfaq/t58 That link has all your answers. The key with cannibutter is letting it "cook" on a low heat for a long time. Just read the tek on that site
