Hello canna baes! It’s Wednesday at #CampQuarantine & that means two things:
- I have not gotten dressed all day
- I have done a ton of meal prep
I try not to be on my soapbox about it *dusts off soapbox* edibles are for daily life. I use elevated butter, olive oil, coconut oil, distillate & kief to make my kitchen creations even more magical!✨
My personal canna journey began when my fiance’s father was diagnosed with Cancer.
Going through treatment left him exhausted & without an appetite.
Google recommended edibles. I am a problem solver & when shit gets real, ya girl anxiety bakes like a mfkn keebler elf. 🌈
Since we didn’t have dispos yet (remember the Dark Ages?) I set out to make my own canna butter. I adore cooking & 🧈may be my first love so this gateway condiment has since become a staple in my kitchen.
Maybe you made canna butter before & weren’t a fan bc it was too grainy or maybe too planty. I get it. I hate it planty, like if I want greens, Imma eat a salad. My particular method has a few extra steps to help reduce the planty flavor. I've literally made this hundreds of times. It's almost impossible to fuck up 🙌
- Decarb your cannabis. This is a super way to use sugar leaves & trim + your house will smell delish
- Put canna, butter & water in a crockpot. A stockpot works on the stovetop but keep it low & keep an eye on it
- Strain & chill
- Pour off water
- Melt remaining butter & pour over canna butter disk
- Chill butter & use as you would any butter
If you hate the planty taste, you'll want to do the water bath again. I like to do it 3x for a very light butter w minimal canna taste. My cannagirl Teri hates the taste & this seems to be very user friendly!
Want cannabutter without decarbing & all the steps?
- Go to your local dispo.
- Ask for a distillate syringe. Not RSO. Distillate. You want it to be clear.
- Go home, melt 1lb butter
- Heat distillate syringe under hot running water
- Mix with butter in bowl
An entire syringe is 1000mg & if you use a lb of butter you will have a very specific dose per tablespoon.
1lb butter + 1000mg distillate = 31.25mg per tablespoon
1lb butter + 500mg distillate = 15.63mg per tablespoon
1lb butter + 250mg distillate = 7.81mg per tablespoon
So when you're cooking decide what dose you want per serving. 🤔
For example a cake that serves 8 & the recipe calls for 1/4 c butter.
1/4 c butter = 4 tablespoons
4 tablespoons x 31.25mg = 125 mg total
125 mg/8 servings = @ 15 mg/slice of cake
If you make your butter with tested cannabis, you can do the math for the dosing conversion in my decarb blog. It's a bit more math but you feel like a total badass when you sort it out.
Of course you can also just add the distillate directly to whatever you are making bc distillate is pure fucking magic & now everything is an edible..just like me 😘
