Cannabutter: Trim/Water Ratio Question
Posted 14 December 2009 - 06:34 PM
I am new to cooking with Herb and I was wondering the ratio of Water:Trim I should use for a tasty batch of Cannabutter, when using the crock-pot method? I have done a lot of the double boiler method and I like the effect, but I feel as if the slow-cooker would be better fitting for my needs. Thanks a lot for your input!

Use enough to float the material. You don't want it to touch the bottom. I would day 2-3 cups minimum depending...

1 lbs European Butter
2 oz Trim (Mid)
6 cup H20
Last night I had a watery, green batch of pretty and this morning I came downstairs to a dark green, bubbling stew. I was just wondering if its usual to have bubbles breaking through the mixture. I know that this is a usual occurrence in regular slow-cooking but I have heard that the bubbles are a sign of the mixture being too hot. I have a lower setting on the crock-pot but I usually reserve that for keeping food warm rather than cooking. Any comments? Thanks!
PS. Sorry for the lack of pics. A friend borrowed my camera.

the bubbles mean that the water is evaporating. you should cool it down a bit.
how much cannabutter are you expecting to get?

This butter is made from Hash Plant trim mixed with a little Crystal trim (some WW / Northern Lights Cross-strain).
I have a couple of Pyrex bread pans that work great for butter/h20 disassociation and collection.
As far as recreational vs. medical... I have panic attacks and am legally allowed to have herb (helped me kick the Xanex my dumb-fuck doctor prescribed me.)

I dont think it hurt on high, just higher chance of lossing enough water to scorch, but if you started with enough water you should be fine.
In my case I want the strongest possible edible, so what i do is start with all my material, 2-3 ounces, and 1 stick. I then do it again with the same material. I usually get 2-3 sticks of the strongest possible butter ( you can share a cookie with 3 folks and everyone will be fucked) and another 2-3 sticks of so-so butter ( each person needs 2-3 edibles) .
I use the strong butter for larger batch items ie brownies where i get 2 dozen from a batch or sugar cookies where i get almost 3 dozen from a 1 stick batch.
Doing it this way will get the most out of your material but you will have to sample 1 edible per stick to determine when youve got everything from your material.
Also be sure to rinse your cloth with the herb in it with fresh warm water at the end to get anything left stuck to the cloth and herb.
I use the so-so butter on butter rich recipies, where you get a dozen or less items per stick of butter.
In my experience having a weak edible will turn people off to the edible experience. Allot of folk dont like the taste and wont want to eat 3 of something. Some folks are overly cautious and will break it in half and eat half now and another half in a few hours. So a weak edible will not adequately buzz these folk.
