Freeze or not to Freeze buds before oil


#1

I have heard that freezing the buds & solvent for 48 hrs prior to combining

Hi medical grower,
Can’t help you with info on the oil … I was hoping you could help me with making cannabutter. I searched the forums and couldn’t find what I needed.

I’m following a recipe I found on Leafly that calls for 1 lb unsalted butter, 1 oz bud and at least 1 cup water. I’m simmering it on the stove. My question is how long do I cook it before straining? I’ve read anywhere from 4 hours to 24 hours. How can I tell when it’s ready?

I’m hoping somebody will be along soon who can help both of us.

I saw a you tube video, do a search. Let me know how you go. I would like to know how to make it using oil. No straining. Not sure whether it changes the results

There is a few different ways I have read about. I do freeze the solvent now, seems to work better. I have tried two different with the bud. Frozen and dry, seemed the same. Hope this helps.
