    So I was thinking about making some cookies for a halloween party, however I'm very new to cooking with cannabutter and just bought some from a close friend. I would like to start making my own, I have 7grams of fresh bud. My question is how many sticks, or tablespoons of butter should i add to max out the potency?

    Thank you,
    Drbudbud

    This ratio usually works well for me :mrgreen:

    1 pound of unsalted butter
    2 cups of water
    1 ounce bud, trim, etc.

    But since you only have 7 grams, I would quarter it..
    ie.
    1/4 pound of butter (about 115 grams)
    1/2 cup of water (you can add more water, as the water is only there to hold the butter while it bonds with the THC.)
    and your 7 grams of bud.

    Give that a try and goodluck!

    Haha, no problems. Hope they are the bomb!!
    Now that you have made butter once, you should be able to figure out your own ratios for next time!

    Happy munching:mrgreen:

    so you use a 1:16 ratio for weed/trim to butter? when you use fan leaves or stems do change this ratio? how strong is the high(lets say 1 is a bong rip 5 is being sick?) from a normal sized food serving ?

    I know a guy who crams 5oz of kill into a lb of butter by letting it dry out and crushing it into dust. Crazy strong...

    It's up to you how strong you want it.

    Sorry it's a common term around here that means only one thing, the best of the best primo trichome loaded buds. Not just the best some guy somewhere had, the best on the planet.

    Subcool is the guy, if you know who that is. He told me about it at a halloween party last week but I was suprised that was even possible and was so high I didn't question it just nodded my head and said damn...

    Yeah that is crazy, i'm sure a few grams of that butter would knock you for six , if not make you sick!

    well i finished of my butter and made some cookies with about 100g of butter- it made eleven thin cookies, first time i ate 1 and a 1/3 . I got high but not baked. I ate two last night and i was pretty fucking high, very up high. I was laughing and joking around. I'm going to try and find a recipe or a way to eat more at once rather than eating 3 or 4 cookies to get real wasted.
    I think next season i'll use a 1:1 butter to trim ratio. I've plenty weed to smoke and get high but i wanted to get proper medicated with this butter.

    Should the trim be dried and cured before you make butter

    You can use wet bud/trim or dry. I personally don't think it matters.
    Putting your bud/trim in the freezer prior to making hash will infact have an effect. The cold will freeze the trichs, making them ridged and easier to knock off when mixing in the ice water. :)
