So pretty simple right? Low heat some olive oil for an hr or so, strain the weed out, mix some spices in there, and dip garlic bread into it.

Just not sure what ratio I should use. I plan on using some dank bud, no trimmings or anything.

The more potent the better, I just don't want to overdo it.

I wouldn't recommend using olive oil to extract with. Even plain vegetable oil has a higher fat content (in my experience.)

I've used about a 1/4 cup of vegetable oil to extract a half oz of ABV. Made 4 good doses, and by good I mean hard & heavy onset about an hour in (on an empty stomach.)

Using dank buds seems like a waste, but if its what you want to do it shouldn't take more than 4-5grams in a 1/4 cup ratio.

Also when using fresh buds make sure you pop them in the oven or microwave to have them go through decarboxylation. This process activates the ingredients.

use coconut oil for making marijuana oils or butter atleast, never olive oils and vegetable oils when you heat them up they turn to transfats which get stored under your skin for 7 years cause our body cant absorb and dispose of them properly and is one of the leading causes of melenoma cause basically when you get sunburnt the transfats under our skin are cooking even when you go out of the sun they still continue to cook for a while so they are searing your flesh practically. also oils from nuts, seeds ect have very low saturated fat content which is what soaks up the goodies from cannabis, coconut oil i beleive has 90% and butter i think has 60 not sure about butter but anyway use one of those and you will double or triple your potency.

edit: also dont forget to decarb your weed will also make it allot more potent :) get baked mate. :D

I agree that coconut oil is a MUCH better choice than either olive or vegetable oil. However I know not everyone has immediate access to it.

Your statement that the transfats created by the heating of olive oil is greater than in other oils is not accurate. I found this when I searched for a source:

"Heating olive oil will evaporate the alcohols and esters which make up the delicate taste and fragrance of olive oil. Heating olive oil will not change its health aspects appreciably. All oils will oxidize if repeatedly heated to high temperatures. Olive Oil seems to be more resistant to this. Heating olive oil will not change it from a monosaturated fat which is considered far healthier than the polyunsaturated fats in margarine or the cholesterol in butter. When olive oil and other vegetable oils are subjected to heating a lower amount of undesirable TRANS fatty acids are formed in olive oil than in the other oils. Use a cheaper, less flavorful pure oil for frying and a more flavorful extra virgin olive oil on salads and as a condiment at the table."

olive oil i admit is far better then others when cooking for less transfats but it still does make transfats.
