    Because you have to boil it with a rolling boil for at least a half hour to an hour. Not steep it. It was not rough enough, or hot enough to pull the oil out. If you still have the bud, redo it.</font>

    Sorry hon, when I have made canna butter, I have never used less than 1/4 oz. Most of the time I use at least 1/2 oz. So I cannot say what a gram would do, as I have never cooked with so little. You can try to put it in one cupcake tho and see what it does. When weed is cooked, it has a slightly different buzz. If you eat enough cooked weed, it has a psychotropic element to it that normaly isnt there.</font>

    i want to make that but it just seems pretty easy to ruin. and that aint happenin. if i was making brownies why not just throw the pot in the mix? i mean i dont understand how making the butter would get me higher, i mean if its the same amount of pot as i would use to make the butter would it be okay to just throw that in the brownies all ground up like powder?

    you are better off grinding th bud and then boiling it... Most
    marijuana teas stone only because the thc is decarboxilated due to the
    heat AND plant matter is released into the water, not because the thc
    is dissolved in the water. THC is not water soluble. A better way is to
    get everclear and make shots....

    Natural sugar is very good at binding to the THC in my experience. I've read that sugar is very bad compared to butter and alcohol, but I've had really good effects from it, and I think natural sugar is better than the refined kind. Anywhoo, here's a quick recipe:


    Salvia Mark's Pot Chai


    Mix 4 tablespoons of maple syrup in 1ltr. of 2/3 rice milk and 1/3 water. Add two bags of Yogi tea(normal tea works fine, but yogi tea gives a very smooth taste), a small pinch of vanilla(optional), andabout 5g ofnormal weed(if you aregrowing weed yourself, you can use the stems and leaves that you don't want to smoke, just add more than 5g).


    Simmer this for 30-45 minutes and enjoy.If you plan to make more later, save the weed and add it with fresh weednext time, so you get most of the THC out of it.


    This recipe tastes delicious without the weed also, though the weed really gives a nice flavor.


    Boom Shiva.

    when swim cooks with small bits, he uses olive oil in a small stainless steel cup, and heats about 50ml of oil and a gram of weed, over a propane torch, and then he mixes it with something tasty like spageti or somthign.
