Yesterday was my first try at making Alice B. Toklas brownies. I used a box mix from Aldi and olive oil that I infused with decarbed trim. Yummy and potent; they knocked my socks off.
@Switchback what ratio did you use for the oil. I made brownies with oil with .25 oz flower to 1 cup oil. They ended up hallucinagenic. I think I need to scale back or use less potent weed.
I used ground trim, no bud. One cup of trim in one cup of olive oil, simmered at about 170 F for three hours; then I strained it and added to my brownie mix, which called for 2/3 cup of oil. One or two 1-inch squares produces a pleasant, mellow, long-lasting buzz.
That’s where I went wrong then. Better use trim instead of buds next time. Thanks for the info.
From what I’ve researched, it’s hard to accurately dose homemade edibles. Best to consume a small portion and work up if necessary after waiting 30-45 minutes to gauge the effects.
My next batch will include several small buds with the trim.
