op. I just use my crockpot. 1lb of butter to 1 oz weed, broken up. Pour in water to bring the mixture to about 2/3 full. I start with a few hours at high, then when I go to sleep I turn it to low. In the morning, I unplug the crockpot and let it all cool such that it's not so hot it will burn you, but not cooled enough for the fat to start solidifying yet. I line a large plastic bowl with double cheesecloth, pour the entire contents of the crockpot into it, gather up the cheesecloth and wring out all the water and the melted butter. You can throw the cheesecloth and the plant material out, it's of no use anymore. Pour the water/melted butter mixture into a clean container with a lid and put it into the freezer. Within an hour or two the fat will have risen to the top and solidified, and the leftover water will be at the bottom. I try to get it out of the freezer while the cannabutter is solid but the water hasn't frozen. You can just pop the top layer out of the container, discard the water, and then put your butter back into your container. you can keep the cannabutter in the fridge or freezer, but I recommend the freezer to keep mold from developing.

np: Does nothing end up in the water? And how much "butter" do you consume each time (like how high will you get with 1T of butter). Do you just put it on a cracker or something? What's the advantage of this over smoking? [ Reply | More ]

I have some bags of Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker mix ready to go, 2 dozen eggs. Planning some cookies and caramels this week. Maybe brownies. I wrap them up tight individually and shove them to the back of the bottom drawer of the freezer. My kids never go in that freezer anyway. [ Reply | More ]
