This is my first attempt to make and then use cannabutter. After the 24 hr refrigeration, I did not have any water to pour off, but I did have a “crust” of what appears to be “burned” butter on the bottom of the dish. Is this burnt butter good for anything? Also any suggestions on finding less expensive product than the dispensary I am using? I assume prices vary by area, but in just paid $210 for enough to make 1 batch of carmel corn. Thanks for any assistance you might be able to give. Understandable if you cannot make suggestions.
Hi Pat: Thanks for visiting and trying our recipes! Let’s see if we can figure out what happened- strange you had no water left over to pour off- water is used in butter and oil extractions when using a lot of herb and a smaller amount of oil/butter to bring the total volume of liquid high enough to cover the herb. This must constantly be watched and topped off as the water will evaporate throughout the cooking process. As far as keeping costs down, I wish everyone could legally grow their own medicine!! Unfortunately, this is not yet possible, so you can always make smaller amounts of butter or oil. Or, see if you can get trim or shake from a dispensary/grower/friend and use that. We’ve successfully run 1/2 OZ of ground prime bud through one stick of butter total volume- you’ll definitely need water for this- and you’ll lose about 1TBSP of butter through the straining process, but add plain butter at the end to get back to 1 stick or 1/4 Cup. That’s 1/2 OZ of weed in one stick of butter!! About 4X regular ‘budder’ strength… This could then be diluted with regular butter to make any of the recipes on this site. Good luck, and please let us know what happens. Also, the way I try and figure dosage, is take the total amount of herb you have on hand and divide that by the total milligrams of oil. In the 1/2 OZ herb (14 grams) -1 stick butter (4 Tbsp) run we did, we calculated that batch to be around 3.5 Grams Weed to 1 Tbsp of butter. That should be used very, very cautiously. Best to dilute with regular butter to figure the optimal strength. Please don’t forget to decarboxylate your plant matter first!!!
Most recipies call for cannabutter or oil.how would you use co2 oil in this recipe?
Hi Tausha: You sure can use CO2 oil… you would need to first dilute your CO2 oil into the butter/oil you plan on using in the recipe. Just melt your butter or coconut oil on a very low setting (double boiler is best), and when it is liquid, slowly add your CO2 oil and incorporate it fully into the cooking oil/butter. Let cool in fridge or on counter overnight, and make recipe as indicated. Just keep in mind the total amount of THC you’re putting into the recipe and dose accordingly. Start small and work your way up just to be safe!
