    i used the search engine and cou;dn't find an answer to my question.

    my question is how much reasonably high quality cannibis is needed for threshold, light, common and strong effect if it is cooked into butter and then made into brownies?

    all i could find on erowid was specific marinol doses.

    cant give you exact doses but when swim makes brownies he likes to use a quarter to a half ounce of grass (usually just some brick weed) per pan of brownies... and 1 or 2 of swims brownies usually keep him blazed for 12+ hours... potency of final product also depends on preparation method... if you would like me to get into prep details please let me know

    i guess it is a pretty difficult question to answer.

    we have to use reasonably good weed here because its actually hard to find schwag. we live so close to canada that's pretty much all that is around is good canadian weed. no complaints here but it feels pretty wasteful cooking with that stuff and then dosing is much more specific too. eat too much (easy to do) and you'll feel way too stoned and awful
    for 18+ hours. eat too little and you'll have to redose, but you won't know for a long time if you've eaten too little, kind of ruins your night.

    Use a quarter. simmer it down in oil, and give it a shot. You can always eat more, but never less.

    instead of just simmering in oil or butter, i find that a double boiler works best... it takes a little longer (I like to let it go for a couple of hours) but seems to give better results

    My rule of thumb is to start out with about half of what I would smoke
    in a night (if I've used the same weed before, I'll know how much I
    need).



    When using White Widow I'll generally eat between 0,6 and 1,2 grams. Depending on required strength of course.



    But does a quarter refer to a quarter ounce, a little over 7 grams? If so, is that per person? Couldn't be, right? [​IMG]

    yes, it refers to a quarter ounce, but that is for a whole pan of brownies, not a single dose

    so then the normal dose for weed not quite as good as white widow would be like 2 grams? 1.5 maybe?

    first, I had a wire screen that was made to be put in a kitchen sink
    drain to catch food from going down, but a wire strainer would work as
    well, any screen will do, as long as its not flat, it should be bowl
    shaped

    I use this screen to clean his weed with... it grinds his weed us
    very nicely where it actually looks like any ground herb one might find
    on a kitchen spice rack... it can even get the weed to almost a powdery
    consistancy (swim fit a half ounce of this finely ground weed in a
    single film canister once)... an actually weed grinder or a coffee
    grinder would work as well, but the screen helps seperate the stems
    out... just work the weed across the screen with your fingers

    swim then constructs a double boiler by putting a pot of water on the
    stove and bringing it to a boil and then putting a metal mixing bowl on
    to of the pot of water... in the mixing bowl goes a stick of unsalted</span> butter</span>
    (not margerine, thc is fat soluable so it has to be butter)... the
    steam from the boiling water in the pot heats the mixing bowl without
    it getting hot enough where you have to worry about anything burning...
    once the butter has melted add your finely cleaned weed... let this
    simmer for at least half an hour, but I like to let it go for an
    hour or more, depending on how patient he feels that day

    now, after you feel that it has simmered long enough you can choose to
    strain your butter through a couple of layers of cheese cloth if you
    want to remove the plant material from the butter... this is done more
    if you didnt take the time to grind your weed... if you ground the weed
    it dosent matter as much because the plant material will mix in just
    like flour does

    now you have thc infused butter that you can use for whatever you want
    to... you put it in a container and let it cool in the fridge and
    spread it on your morning toast if you want to, or use it any way that
    you would normally use butter

    but... if your making brownies right away leave it in its liquid form (cause that how you need it :p)

    it dosent matter if your using boxed brownie mix or your using moms or
    grandmas brownie recipy, just use you fresh cannabutter where it calls
    for oil or butter

    enjoy

    I've entered into a habit of just ingesting cannabis whole. Every night this week I've dropped an 1/8th just before bed and have woken up every morning very stoned, and completely relaxed. It's a great way to relieve stress but it does temporarily deplete my energy levels. A good holiday habit. There's something nice about going to sleep expecting to be stoned by the time I wake up.
