How to make butter

Anybody knows how to make weed butter

@Countryboyjvd1971 can you move topics? This needs to be in edibles…

@H146 there are numerous tutorials on YouTube but simply put: your plant material needs to be decarboxylated in the oven then steeped in whatever you choose for butter (I use coconut oil because it yields better) then the plant material strained out. That’s basically it.

You can decarb while extracting but will extract more chlorophyll which is bitter and strong tasting. I only steep mine for 2 hours for this reason and decarb in the oven beforehand.

I use a suveue cooker and slow cook my butter or coconut oil for 8 -10 days

This is the type of cooker I use
Fill quart jar with butter or coconut oil and at least 1/2 ounce of flower or trim
Then slow cook at 118 for 7-8 days
Strain product and top off with butter or coconut oil cook for 2-3 more days at 118
It take time but when you make your edibles you’ll be happy
I have given brownies to a few friends and had them high for two days hahahaha

I make cannabis-butter using a crockpot. It works great.

I use buds and leaves, I decarb all of it and grain it very fine. 1 cup of trim to 1 cup of butter and a 1/2 cup of water. Cook it for 4 hours, cool and strain.

Proper dosage seems to be around 1/8 teaspoon.

It goes great in brownie mix, peanut butter cookies or even on mashed potatoes.

Add some lecithin which will increase the body’s uptake of THC.

one tool that really boosted my medblies is the Ardent Uplift and the Magical Butter Machine
I use 2 cups of coconut oil, 1 oz bud or shake, 1/4 oz kief. Decarbed using the Uplift, infused in the Magical Butter

@Gardenguy…Butter Brewer holding up well? I’m debating pulling the trigger for one, not happy with MB2. Thanks.

Sorry, I have been extremely busy and didn’t see the question the butter brewer is working great for me. I have never used the MB2 so I don’t have a comparison though

Thanks. I hear in a month or so, they might have them back in stock.

As I have said I just use a crockpot.

A group of my neighbors and I have experimented by using buds that had some mold on them [both White powder mold and bud rot]. It would appear that boiling in a crockpot for 4 to 6 hours more than kills all the mold.

We have never seen any mold re-spore in our butter batches.

As far as I can tell, if you have a crop of marijuana that has been hit with mold, you can save your crop by converting all of it to canna butter.

Do we have any bio-chemists who would care to comment?

New to growing…so this may be a silly question…the fan leaves that I’m defoliating some at the end of veg and now into week 3 of flower…are these of any use for making butter? Any THC content in these at this point?
