-Microwave Safe Container
-Another container to filter the butter into
-Filter (Cheesecloth prefered, but I used a coffee filter for convenience sake)
Okay, so I used about 1-2tbsp butter for this recipe. Just a small amount to test. I added to it about 3g of finely ground bud, i used vaped bud so I had to use more than the conventional 1g/serving for recipes. Make sure its finely ground. If using regular bud, put it in the microwave for 45 seconds for a few sessions to decarboxylate it, it should crumble easily if its fully decarboxylated and will make it more potent for cooking.
Heat the butter in the microwave for about a minute, until it melts. Then when its melted, microwave for 15 seconds longer to heat it up. Then add weed. Make sure to cover the container at all times so the vapor doesn't carry away any cannanaboids.
Stir, and let sit for 2 mins (make sure it's covered). Then I put it in the microwave for 30 seconds on high heat, stirred, and let it sit for 2 minutes. Repeat for a total of 3 or 4 sessions of 30 seconds. I then let it sit for 30 mins, heated it again for about 45 seconds, strained it, and let cool in fridge.
3 days later, I ate the butter on some toast. Took 3 hrs to kick in fully, then an hour later i was tripping hard, and at around 1:30 when I went to bed I was still pretty high. Woke up feeling awesome.
Suggestions: I am going to make another batch tonight, I am going to add water to the butter at the begining to help prevent the butter from burning and to help dissolve some of the plant matter/impurities/cl-, ect. When the butter cools, the water and butter will seperate, and hopefully will make the butter taste better.
Also, I am going to let the bud sit in the butter for at least 12 hours before reheating and straining again, since cannanaboids can dissolve into lipids without heat, heat is just a catalyst.
Just thought I'd share my experiences with those covert cookers out there, or simply for people looking for a quick cooking method. This can be ready within an hour essentially.
