# Cannabutter cooking questions

1. So I've been trying to make some cannabutter to test, and I've been doing the math. I don't want to feel ripped off so I was planning on using around 3 grams of juicy fruit, and scaling the whole cooking process. Going by the pound for ounce ratio on most recipes; I'll add around a 1/4 cup of margarine and double boil for 30 minutes etc (Going by Indianatokers post) .. Now for the questions:

1) Im pretty big guy (6'2'' 220) with heavy tolerance will this get a good buzz going?
2) How much water should I add with the weed/butter? (since its already in a pot over water it doesnt need water to stop burning? Or does water help the filtering process?)

2. Thats not enough weed, For 1 cup of quality cannabutter you need at least 10 grams plus.

3. Yes but how much cannabutter does one need for a single dose?

EDIT: by the way, Juicy Fruit sounds like an amazing strain to cook with. I can just imagine the aroma

4. Two sticks of butter equals a cup, so for 1 stick of butter or a half cup would use no less then 5 grams. A half a stick or quarter cup should be the amount you need for 3 grams of weed. But that dosage may not be adequate, in edible terms that is a very low concentration.

5. But going by that ratio, that means 1/4 cup = 2.5 grams a bit less than mine. I just want one dose to give it a test run

Exactly why I wanted to try sam spade I was thinking of putting it in some delicious coffee.

6. Yes 2.5 grams is the mathematical measurement for a 1/4 cup, But when I make cannabutter I focus on THC concentration in the butter I rarely use less then 14 grams for 1 cup and often 20 grams for 1 cup.

But yes I suppose you can use 3 grams for a 1/4 cup, But the effects may be minimal.

7. I decided to give it a try, and ended up putting around 3.5 or 4 grams into 1/4 a cup of margarine. Its 20 minutes into the 2 hour cook so far.. So I'm just smoking some bowls

I'll let you guys know how it goes
