Best butter to make.. butter?
I have some buds I want to make in to butter. I am going to put in crock pot low setting, just barely cover with butter and let cook for few hours. Is this the best method? I have butter with 3% fat. I've seen up to 7% in stores. More fat absorbs more right? What's a really good butter for this? I can't believe it's not butter has 7% fat.
Your method should work fine. Make sure to grind weed or at least chop finely for more efficient extraction.

If you want actual butter when you're done, I'd suggest starting with real butter (ie from a cow, not a laboratory).
Despite what you suggest above, real butter is about 80% milkfat, and will dissolve just about all the THC you care to throw at it.
Best bet is either Virgin Coconut Oil or Real Butter (highest fat % you can find). A blend of high quality Oils can work well too
Soy Lecithin is also a must in your cooking recipes
i second the virgin coconut oil. easier to work with and much more versatile.
and yeah. 'i can't believe it's not butter' is supposed to have the highest levels of trans fats out of all the butter substitutes. i'm getting arterial sludge just thinking about it
The more fat content the better. I just made some with trim and that generic butter was 17% fat.
I would put some water in with it too to make sure the butter and buds don't burn.
Read this page. Good info.

Unsalted butter with the heights fat content I can find.
I used 1oz buds per pound of butter
Grind dry buds (Coffee grinder work great)
