My CannaButter

Hello fellow growers and cannabis consumers 

I have decided too share my very quick and easy attempt at making my very first bach of cannabis butter. It started of with me collecting around 50 gram of trim after my last harvest and not wanting to waste anything i decided to keep it and let it dry, after hunting round youtube and ofcourse around here and canna educators webpage an so on i decided to give this cannabutter a go. I decarbed my trim in the oven for around 45mins at 107c and let cool, after I took 2 and a half small blocks off unsalted irish butter and the now cooled trim and placed it into a large crok-pot and filled with water until the trim was just submerged, I then put on lowest temp setting and stirred roughly every 2hours, after giving it 6 hours to stew i used a combination of a unused mesh laundry bag and some new unused cheap cloths (that are almost the same material as cheese cloth) too catch the plant matter as i poured the butter water mix into the fresh pan underneath and then strained as much of the butter back out of the leaves in the cloth. I left it to cool for a few hours so the butter an water would seperate, so then i had to remove the butter that has hardened ontop of the water so I could remove the water. to finish off i then reheated the cannabutter to remove any last impurities and poured into its final containers and returned to the fridge to cool.

I did not remeber at the start to get my phone an snap some pics but i did eventually remeber so here is what i did manage to snap

@green-beard seems to me it would work  Im sure Canna Educator will be around He would no for sure, but it infuses into oils easy  just be careful of how strong you make it  mine gave me a bad day

Its different mate. Definitely more intense, but its hard to describe the difference. Its a much thicker stone. Edibles really fuck me up. But I can smoke all day long.

The podcast with Canna Educator will be up in a couple of hours, and there is plenty of info on this subject in there 🙂

@green-beard id compare it more to doing mushrooms. when thc is smoked it goes right to your cannabanoid receptors in your brain through your bloodstream. edibles is different. it needs to process it in your liver first for it to enter into your bloodstream and when it does that, an enzyme breaks it down into a much more potent drug. 4 or 5 times stronger than just thc. definatly worth reading up on but its a totaly different experience in my opinon. more like a shroom trip but without the major trippy-colour-gasm

@scottishmac nice work bro! Love seeing this stuff - after this butter i'm sure you will have a good idea of your dosage for edibles now too 🙂 

@greenbeard the bro @dok.gonzo gave you a great answer - with the fake butter stuff I would be wary of separation, but, using olive or coconut oil is very easy too and tastes the best in my opinion - you can also make topicals like balm with coconut oil if its too strong to eat
