    Great recipe but if you use that amount of butter it still breaks down to a whole zip on a batch. A zip in any batch is gonna be killer

    Hi all! Will the MagicalButter allow me to make just an ounce or two of alcohol or glycerin tincture? Does anyone here add lecithin to their tincture? If yes, how is it compared to without? Thanks!

    Mrs PoopMachine bought me one of these from our LHS for Xmas. I didnt have any soy lecithin so I had to wait until today to get it going. Ive got 3 cups of coconut oil and about 32 grams of mids in the machine now brewing some oil. Im going to take a cup and put in capsules and use the other two cups for some kind of baking treat. Im really interested in seeing how potent this turns out.

    The machine is slick tho.. its like a crock pot with a built in blender.

    @Snappo, I have done it both way however only with soy in the machine. I will say I don't see the difference but when you said that a time bomb went off in my head. I am having a huge issue with the butter and the caramel I made from it. I get a huge hang over and I suffer from headaches so it made my headache way worse and right behind my eye and very debilitating. I don't know if I will be able to consume any edibles but maybe I am lucky and it is the soy that is reacting to me. I will have to try without in the machine after research of course to see if maybe I am allergic. Google here I come.

    Sorry to hear about your headaches! Have you had any sinus issues of late? I have, and with the sinus problems I have had a 4 week headache, non-stop. Anyway... since edibles don't usually agree with me, I'd like to make sublingual tinctures in small amounts only - say, 1 or 2 oz at a time, no more. Can the MagicalButter handle making such small amounts? If yes, I wouldn't have to run over to my neighbor's house to use the oven & stove because I don't have either, or even a hot plate right now. I have been using my toaster oven for decarbing though. Thanks!

    You have to make a lot in the machine but that is fine if I can use what I make. I always have a headache 24/7 but the ones I get from edibles lately and it could be I am od-ing on to much. Anyhow, I am not done testing because every time the weather is bad as well. I am trying to find a string of good days where the weather is steady and I know exactly the level my headaches will be at. I will say this it seems to be different. It is normally behind the right eye and I can't see well as it is so pounding. When I did a very small dose of butter it was still there but not as bad. It was still bad enough if that is what is causing it i am done with butter and anything to make with it. I ate eggs one day and thought I was gonna die. It takes two hours to hit, next two hours I am good and then bam ouch. I have tried tincture but I haven't made my own batch yet with real bud. I will and let you know. I was hoping to get to it two weeks ago. I am still now having to wonder if it is the soy lecitin as I said. I am going to google late night unless you happen to know.

    I do have sinus issues and others that contribute to my headaches but it has been since my single digit years. I took bottle of baby asprin. I am now on prescription stuff for headaches just about the only "drugs" I take regular. I wake up with a headache every morning or earlier which makes me made and take my pills. I try not to take anymore for the day. Sometimes I will take two advil if it gets beyond where I want it and sometimes give in and take script.

    I really appreciate your taking the effort to reply, and look forward to your ABV tincture update. Your experience to us FC'rs is invaluable! I made about 1.5oz Green Dragon the other day with some lemon skunk buds (only 1/8th) & 151 Bacardi and it came out mighty powerful! I vape it (only a few drops in cotton and let it evap), or take a dropper full under the tongue then down the hatch. The vaping gets me all the way there, but doesn't last the full 7-8 hours that the dropper under the tongue does. It's all good for sure, and no vaporized cellulose in the lungs, just pure goodness! Cheers! Snappo

    Do you know if mixing lecithin into the alcohol ABV tincture would preclude vaping it?

    I haven't done a tincture, yet, was thinking of doing another butter/coconut oil mixture.

    Our stuff is done. We ended up with 2 cups of green oil and about 3/4 of a cup that we put into capsules. What didnt make it into capsules is in the freezer. We took a little over a teaspoon each just to sample it. Im really surprised how "clean" it tastes. Its 95% coconut oil taste. When Ive made butter in the past, its been really nasty. I wish I had more mids around now to try some butter.

    We ran another cycle of oil with extra virgin olive oil and a whole clove of garlic and it came out fantastic. We cooked dinner with it.. we buy infused olive oil pretty often and this stuff was every bit as good. I can see this little machine will get a lot of use both for edibles and everyday kitchen items. I want to do a vodka with Jolly Ranchers next.

    @Snappo thanks for the pat on the back. Just so you know I used fresh bud as abv I was afraid would put me to sleep and for the first try of caramel I wanted to use the real deal. If you look back a little bit you will see what I put in it and I still have butter left as it was a pound plus a stick or what they call a stick now I call it a half.

    Poop and others when you find something that works please put up the recipe....not need till you know if it is good. Poop what and how did you do your oil....recipe as is in book or different?

    Snappo I don't think you can vape soy lecitin. I believe bad kat said that. I think we will have to do some googling over the weekend....headaches and soy and see if there is any correlation. Soon I will need to make a thread about this headache crap as it happens with certain strains as well but nothing like the butter.

    I more or less followed the recipe in the book. I put in 3 cups of cocnut oil, 30 grams of bud (Which was a ridiculous amount, it was dry) and set it on oil and let it go. It ran for an hour and we drained it.

    I maybe should have done 2 cups instead of 3. Its not as strong as I hoped but I didnt use any of my good bud with it, I used a bunch of mids I had laying around. It definitely works tho.. 2 teaspoons would probably have knocked me on my butt. 1 teaspoon and a couple of Cloud hits and I was done for the evening and thst rarely happens. My tolerance is through the roof.

    Do you guys use this thing for it's simplicity. Because, I can make butter, coconut oil, tintures et all with the free utensils I have laying around the house?

    Yes, dead since I am disabled I can't do all the work. The machine cuts out a lot of it but you are still left with the bs of straining which sucks more then anything. Dead the other thing is, is that it seems to extract way better as I have made coco oil and olive in a crock pot and they were weak as hell. I only put slivers of butter on my rolls which is way less then I did with coco with no effects. The butter makes me fly and I don't even fly from vaping.

    Snappo did you use fresh as I thought you said you used abv?

    In the mean while I made crescent rolls before and four I used my mj butter. I am just over two hours in and flying so we will see about that headache in two more. I did already take four pills today for my headache before so again not a great test but I haven't had that strange headache since the last time. I am only doing this today cause I need meds and I need to clean my body a bit from a bad few days so the butter will be my only meds today besides headache pills.

    If I missed something I am flying so ask again later. I will be back for a headache update.

    Besides the lecithin, the other change I am planning when I do my next batch is to add a bit of water to help wash out the chlorophyll. I believe this will improve both the taste and the shelf life of the finished product. Easy to separate via refrigeration after the fact. I will use abv and duff together again.

    Absolutely understand @Dreamerr . If I ever got a chance to try one, I might change my mind. Also, I can see it being worth it from a savings point ie: no wasted batches. I have just got my tek down to where it now is pretty easy.

    Also, I made a batch of GD myself today @Snappo. Ecept I use moonshine at still strength which my friend makes. It really gives it a nice flavor.

    My problem is dosing. I have a hard time with it when baking. If I am in a hurry with no time to bake, I actually will dose each individual coolie with GD and let it rest. Creating optimum dosing.

    I used fresh Lemon Skunk bud, but I have been inquiring of late on FC about making alc. tincture from ABV. Today I mixed a cc of fresh bud tinct. with a spoonful of coconut oil under the tongue and held for a few minutes, then down the hatch. Very nice light nutty herb flavor with a tinge of sting. The coconut oil as I understand it enhances bio-availability for a more efficient uptake. My 1st experience with the tincture-infused oil would not have me bet against it.

    Since abv is highly vaped I would eat it straight before mixing it anymore. I suppose I can throw it in a milkshake or a strawberry shake but I don't want to do work with it. I use a straw to clean my screens when I vape so I eat a small amount/crumbs of abv daily.

    There may be a significant difference in effect between ABV dry and ABV concentrated tincture. The tincture difference, being in potency, may translate into a magnified ABV effect that could prove interesting and beneficial. The way I'm figuring it now is that I'd rather make something that makes me really take notice in a good way than the same ol' la-di-da from dry. Will let you know. Of course I know that it's a good deal subjective, and can vary greatly among individuals. So it's all IME (in my experience) only.

    No, I think you are correct but I am not sure the difference in effect is worth the work. With that said if you use the machine then it doesn't matter. I would more then likely do a quick drain and toss the rest but would not do that with fresh. I did do it however, with the butter that I made long ago and tossed the stuff in the zip yesterday as I knew I wasn't going to finish straining it and was tired of looking at it in the fridge. Like I said draining is the worse part.

    Well we are almost 4 and a 1/2 hours now my headache is bad but not that eye one but I didn't use that much. I am also tired and I used straight up sativa. I don't get why this happens. I will report later if I get a huge hang over.

    I get what you're saying about the extra steps being a hassle. But, at least for now as a beginner I am enjoying the process of doing it, with some enthusiasm left over for exploration.

    Concerning your headaches, if allergens have you flared to an acute condition, I wonder if an antihistamine might alleviate some pressure and inflammation.

    When it gets bad I take the anti's as you know I don't like taking drugs hence why I am off crap today cause I needed pharms for two days. Today I am putting up with the pain and such.

    Now as far as the soy I just remembered it can't be that cause I had a cookie a few weeks back made by someone else and same thing happened.

    Snappo go read the milk shake thread that might be right up your alley and done with abv and way easy. I just don't like peanut butter. Some have just chucked it into a wendy's shake. If you can't find it let me know.

    New Jersey Family Given $10,000 to Facilitate Move to Colorado for Better Medical Marijuana
    Dec 28, 2013

    A New Jersey family who has pushed for changes to the state’s medical marijuana law to help treat their young daughter suffering from severe seizures has been gifted $10,000 to help them relocate to Colorado to receive better care for her. The Wilson family has worked to get medical cannabis for their daughter Vivian, who suffers from Dravet syndrome, which makes her have multiple life threatening seizures every day.

    The Christmas donation came from Magical Butter’s CEO Garyn Angel and two of his friends, Lisa and Drew Braun. Magical Butter is a Washington-based company that manufactures a machine to make cannabis-infused butters and oils.
