    I made cannabutter with coconut oil for the first time! I think it came out great! I used a Mason jar and pressure cooker, it was quick not too smelly. This video helped alot. What do you guys do with the abv after straining?

    I save my mash and eat it as is.I take a small tsp and just scoop up a small ball of mash,tap it into the palm of my hand and toss it back and swallow.

    I just got the Ardent Lift and am trying it out but haven't reached the infusion stage yet.I have done all my oil infusions using the oven and crock pot methods and made large batches but time now to just do the small batch method.

    I didn't buy the silicone insert so I will probably use the old mason jar as my oil container to do the infusion..

    Can I lower the temperature on my VaporBrothers desktop since I decarbed my bud first?

    I don't recall ever seeing any info on lowering the temp after decarbing first and I have done much searching in the last few years.I'm trying my usual temp setting and also a lower setting but it's hard to tell once I get a buzz going.Or on the other hand do I raise the temp?Questions question questions,nothing but questions :D

    my stuff is decarbed after I vape it. I used some of the butter last night I drank it in a tea, got a nice relaxed feeling from it for sure.

    I've used ABV many times in the past but now I have enough bud that I do not need to save my ABV.I enjoy making oils and ingesting orally along with vaping.

    I used sunflower lecithin.

    Each jar has 1oz of ABV, and a little over a cup of coconut oil (I started with a cup, and then added several teaspoons of coconut oil to each jar after adding the ABV because I felt it was just a little too thick). I'd added two tablespoons (six teaspoons) of sunflower lecithin powder to each jar and mixed till it dissolved before I added the ABV.

    I'm keeping them in that double-boiler, and stirring each jar about every fifteen minutes with a butter knife.

    I'm using a digital thermometer (one of these) to check the temp of the water as often or more often than I stir, and keeping the temp at approximately 190F (+ or - 5 degrees) by micro-adjusting the stove temp knob every time I check. After about an hour or so I found . pretty good spot for the temp dial, and haven't had to adjust it more than once or twice in the couple hours since.

    I plan to strain it with at least two layers of cheesecloth after about 4 hours of cooking.

    **edit**
    Well, here is the fruits of my labors. About 2-cups of coconut canna-oil made from ~56 grams of ABV.
    Into the fridge for cooling it goes. Guess I need to go get some brownie mix tomorrow :tup:

    Looks good.
    Generally chocolate mixes hide the taste of the butter pretty well and are easy and available everywhere.
    I often made chocolate cake for ease of making. I personally am not really into chocolate.
    I prefer citrusy recipes, if the butter tastes clean enough.

    I think I did ok. It's starting to solidify into a nice green, considering that I finish my ABV at max temp in most vapes till it doesn't produce vapor any more.

    It's still liquid and dark in the middle, so it may even be a lighter green by tomorrow morning.
    There's only a very tiny bit of powder sediment at the bottom.

    that looks good! let us know how potent it is when you try it! we all want to know! thanks for loading pics this helps a lot of us here on FC.


    you should put that goodness in a nice flat bottom bowl, your gonna have problems getting that out of that jar. on amazon they have some butter stick molds I am gonna use this butter stick mold for my next batch.

    Thanks. And yes, I plan to get some silicon molds in smaller stick-shapes or something similar before I make another batch. I still have close to 1.5oz of ABV, so I expect to me making another batch eventually.

    I'm sure that you're right about the bowl being much easier to get the oil out than this jar. But a jar with a lid is just really convenient. Plus, I can just put it in the microvave for 30-seconds to soften the oil so I can scoop it out.

    Either way, here it is after being in the fridge for a day. It turned even a lighter green, which is awesome, because the ABV I used was quite brown. It looks very nice. Though, it still has that strong toasted ABV smell. I will probably definitely water-cure the ABV next time, as I have been led to believe that water-curing will get rid of most of that odor and taste.

    Anyway, I guess I will use about 3/4 of a cup of this to make some brownies tonight (the brownie mix box calls for 1/2 cup, so I figure that I can up that to 3/4 cup and be okay, but not much more). The box calls for baking at 350F for about 20 minutes, but I don't want to cook that hot, lest I kill the drugs I've worked so hard for...so I plan to bake it at 300F, which will probably take more like 45 minutes or more, but I'm fine with that.

    And now, onward and forward with this experiment.
    BECAUSE SCIENCE! :science:

    @Ramahs - Another thing you can do with that oil is make canna-caps. Whenever I make a batch of coconut oil, I'll always fill about fifty #00 capsules with oil and keep them in the fridge. Popping one or two caps are great when you just want to melt into the couch and watch a good movie.

    Yeah. I have a bag of gelatin capsules in my medicine cabinet. Was thinking about making some of those.
    I have a high tolerance for edibles though. Previously, I would make milkshakes with 12-14 grams of powdered ABV blended in. Anything less than 10 grams just wasn't worth my time. Though, I'm hoping this coconut oil extraction with sunflower lecithin will yield a more potent product...more bio-availability and all. I just don't want to have to swallow 20 or more pills. I also hope I don't have to eat half or more this pan to get a satisfying effect.

    Anyway. I made ~2 cups of coconut oil with 2 ounces of ABV, and these brownies used 2/3 cup of coconut ABV canna-oil. I just hope I don't have to eat half the pan to have a noticeable effect. This pan should provide 18 2"x 3" squares. I'll probably just eat a couple of them tonight, and see how it goes. Next time maybe I'll use another 1/2 - 1/3 cup of oil to blend into frosting. No frosting on these brownies.

    They are cooling now :tup:

    I'd like to hear how this worked out. I'm making some buttercrunch for the holidays and want to use cannabutter in it. I don't want to have to eat a whole batch to get a buzz and was hoping to use ABV instead of decarbing flower.

    Definetly I'll have to get some leticin or whatever it could be and get into da game.
    Thing is I suspect your tolerances put me in the minor league...
    10gr of ABV seems a big business for a milkshake.
    I'll keep tuned on this topic, not popcorn involved!
    Yummy!!

    If you live in a legal state, chances are you have access to concentrates that have % on the label. So 80% THC of 1 gram = .800 mgs. Say you want to make easy canna-caramels. Take 1/2 of a gram (.5 gram = 400 mgs THC). Place in a covered shot glass on a preheated cookie sheet @ 275 F for 20 min. Weight 10 caramels and melt in double boiler. Add a few grams of soy lecithin and melted decarbed concentrate. Mix very well. Divide in 10 equal weighted pieces. I use brown candy cups I bought on Amazon. Each piece will be 40 mgs.

    Here is a pic of my coconut butter from my first batch pressure cooker method. I haven't done my second batch since I didn't recieve my butter stick mold yet but when i do get it, I'll be making my next batch of coconut butter with lecithin this time in a magical butter maker, it's an awesome machine set and forget it, I totally recommend it.[​IMG]

    Guys I just successfully did an everclear/avb tincture master wu green dragon recipe in the magical butter machine, I went the full 8 hour setting for the most extraction and it came out really nice. Check my other thread.

    Well...I cut that 9" x 13" pan into 18 3" x 2" squares.

    That first night, I ate two brownies after they cooled. It started kicking iin after about half an hour, and peaked about two hours. It started coming down after about 4-5 hours. It was a nice light buzz, mostly body, with a small amount of head. It was relaxing and comforting.

    The next night (last night), I ate four brownies as soon as I got home from work around 5:30pm. Again, I noticed it lightly after about 30-40 minutes. It peaked around two hours later, and remained at that hight till I started to come down about 5-6 hours. I didn't feel the desire to vape till around 5-6 hours, right before bed. The high was definitely stronger. Lots of body buzz and relaxing, but more head as well. I spent about three hours choping and cooking fresh veggies and meat, making a giant pot of fantastic soup/stew, and was a reasonable microdose-like high (happily stoned, but not super stoned) enough that I occasionally lost my train of thought and had to turn around, look at the counter, and remind myself what I was about to do next.

    That brings us to tonight, and I just ate 5 brownies. Looking forward to a happy evening.

    Let the experiment continue! :science:
