I can say for certain that your buds were not decarbed, so that's probably the biggest issue. Next time you should decarb at 240ºF for 60 minutes. There was very little THC in the buds that went into your butter. Almost all of it was THCa, which won't get you high. Decarboxylation changes THCa (which is what the plant grows) into THC, which is what creates the euphoric effects of cannabis.

The next factor is how much butter is in each dose of the edible you made.

How long did you decarboxylate and at what temperature? How much butter was in the crock pot with the ounce of weed? And of course, how much butter was in each dose of your edible? So many questions to solve the problem.

Also, probably not a good idea to grow indicas if you like giggly happy active and not couch lock! :)
I forgot a few things White Widow is both og Kush is more Sativa than Indica, true? Didn't dose just ate little crackers with it. Never got high high.. like I said the weed I have had one was blueberry muffins uck! Not good to smoke that being said this lemon skunk was supposed to be lemon haze! So you see what I go through to score...

Are you fkg kidding? What about making oil with a distiller? No Isopropyl alcohol over cannabis filter several times and throw it in the distiller wait for it to come out check for spark on gym clip. If so put on coffee burner for 24 hrs. That's the one I have for that.

White widow is a hybrid, so it might lean one way or the other, but it's not solidly in the sativa or indica camp.

Putting a little butter on a cracker isn't the best way to get high even if you had done a perfect decarb. You would probably need at least 2 milliliters if not more for it to hit you. If you're not actually making edibles like brownies or gummies I would do the infusion in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

99% Iso Alcohol is another way to get the goodies off the buds besides infusion, but you need to make sure there is absolutely no alcohol left in what you're left with after evaporation. Iso alcohol is poisonous, which is why many people use high proof alcohol like Everclear 190 proof. If you have a distiller then you save a lot of money by getting to reuse 80% of the alcohol each time.

Thanks! Guy.... yes WW is a hybrid, everclear 190, where do you find that? And thanks I'm bummed many recipe's for cannabutter said the same temperature and time! 60 minutes 240, they said over 20 minutes would burn it

They do get toasted in there, but when you cook with the butter you don't notice it. Only when you are having the oil or butter straight.

In terms of where to get Everclear 190, it depends on where you are. I can't get it because it's not for sale in California. I think you can order it mail order, or you can get Extractahol which is 200 proof, but pretty expensive. It ends up being less expensive if you have a distiller to reclaim 80% per batch.

Started working on my next batch(s) of edibles & oils. Decided to use sift for everything this time...
:thumb:

Same redneck shit, as usual. LoL, Mason jar, cheesecloth, and dry ice.

I tried to keep things accurate this time... started with a bucket of trim...

Added "a bit" of dry ice, shake TF outta it....

And finish with a "big" pile of sift...

:19::19::19::19:

It's a half jar full. LoL

Rolled my obligatory sift blunt;

Now I gotta wait it out; until I find motivation again to go finish...


I plan on pressing some, and making a big batch of grapeseed oil.
