I’m replying to this over in the recipe topic to try to help keep the edibles info organized
an oz/cup is about the max saturation point of butter and coconut oil.
MB II machine recommends 14-21 grams/cup. I usually err on the side of more than 21 but < 28.
Something I just noticed missing from most of the canna-butter and canna-oil recipes posted here is sunflower lecithin. @AnneBonny? I’m sure you must’ve read that somewhere in Corrine Tobias’ recipes
I use a tbs or powdered Sunflower lecithin/cup of oil. Here’s why…
Lecithin is a yellow-brown colored fatty substance found in all living things (it’s a gooey substance that makes up about a third of your brain). Lecithin contains choline, which is used throughout your entire body as a major ingredient in each and every cell membrane. Besides the fact that your brain absolutely loves this stuff, lecithin provides other benefits when it is included in marijuana infused oils.
First, lecithin gets more cannabinoids into your brain and other cells and it gets them there faster since, you know, your brain is made of the stuff. Second, lecithin increases the effectiveness of the cannabinoids as well as the intensity of the effect. Also, lecithin acts as an emulsifier in the infusion process, helping more cannabinoids to bond with the oil molecules.
Sunflower lecithin is now widely-regarded as being a better alternative to traditional soy-based lecithin. You can probably find sunflower lecithin in your local health foods store, and you may find it in liquid form, granule form or both, either of which is fine
