    Hello I had a friend who is thinking about making marijuana cookies. His friend wants to make the butter, and his book said a 1 to 1 ratio for mid grad bud. 1 ounce marijuana for 1 pound butter. The recipe he is thinking about is for a sugar cookie and uses 1 cup of butter for one batch. One batch is around 48 cookies. 2 cups of butter is roughly around 1 pound of butter.

    Is this enough or to much.. around 1/2 ounce per batch. If I am doing his math right its around .291 of a gram per cookie. Does this sound like way to much or too little? What have swiys experiences been with amounts per cookie/per batch?

    Please include details. As You can imagine they are very important in cooking.

    the dose is fine. I got plenty of exellent bud and usually 0.2-0,3 orally is a good dose.

    don't smoke few hours before you ingest the cookies. the high* will be noticeably stronger(*the high from the cookies;)).

    Good advice on 0.3 or 0.4. A newbie might be best with 0.25, but regular toker with no plans to drive ought to go for the 1 gram ratio. More is good for regular well versed midnight tokers.

    You would veer on the side of caution with eating weed and especially with making so much in one go. Be careful with those cookies and place out of reach of children, cops, aunties and maybe your visiting parents. (and your pet dog!)

    Funny thing is most My tend to see weed and hash as the same measurements in cooking but hash ought to be a lot stronger than weed due to it being the concentrated form of THC.

    An ounce of weed put into the butter is a bit wasteful really. If your You wants true bang for the buck (and who does not?) then the more pro method would be to extract the THC resin from the weed itself perhaps using butane and one of the ready made Honey Bee extractors.

    This way your You has more control over the end product as extracted resin will dissolve in melted butter perfectly and your You has no messy process of re sieving the butter to get most of the thc out of the vegetative mess.

    Some THC will always be lost dumping an oz of weed into veg.

    Also, flavour of your You biscuit or cake is better using extracted thc resin. Melting butter and placing weed or hash into your recipe leaves a bitter taste on top of the bitter taste of the resin itself. If your You truly want a tasty biscuit and not just something that tastes bad, this way is better also. Spread amongst 96 cookies, you would barely taste the resin. Using the right flavourings, they could be TOO NICE.

    Swim thinks that eating hash or resin is one of the most under-rated and yet safest of all drug experiences. It can hit like LSD at the extreme, boost your You like a line of speed, feel like a touch of the 'e' and feel like relaxation of opiates or alcohol also.

    My ratpack also dreams about filling up some capsules with a mix of the butter and THC resin. All are comfortable with eating so maybe Swim will see some interesting things to report.

    Enjoy your Swiys biscuits. Should be quite a nice day, evening weekend you could have there!
