Cannabutter BUD vs Butter Ratio

    I've looked all over this site and alot of places on the internet including YouTube and it seems that everyone makes Cannabutter the same, but the ratios are so inconsistant. I have plenty of Bubba Kush BUDS that I want to use. No stems or shake just BUDS and 1 pound of butter. Does anyone have a solid ratio of how much BUD to add to 1 pound of Butter?

    Here is the inconsistant information I have found all over the internet. Which do you think would be the best choice. I'm just looking for something I can spread on Toast or add to my food. Any consistant information would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for making it look like a something you found on an exam LOL!:lol:

    a.) 1 ounce of BUD to 1 pound of Butter

    b.) 1/2 ounce of BUD to 1 pound of Butter

    c.) 1/4 ounce of BUD to 1 pound of Butter

    d.) 1/8 ounce of BUD to 1 pound of Butter

    the best ratio is whatever ur recipes calls for. The smaller amount you eat, or less to digest the higher youll get. Bite sized snacks are the best. If your gonna spread some on your toast, onlt eat that toast till it hits ya. Eat it on light bread with 40 cal a slice to get higher. How much butter do you like on your toast? A tablespoon or (1/8th)? Whats ur tolerance, how much you smoke to get high on average? Id say if you smoke a bowl, like .4 and get decently high. Then eat like 3-4 times that to get baked. A stick of butter, with a tablespoon per serving works out to like I dunno 8*1.7 ahhh half o. per stick of butter.

    After more research I've found that alot of folks are taking 1/8 oz. of bud per 1 stick of butter or 1/2 oz of Bud to 1 pound of butter = ( 4 sticks of butter ) and then they just use what a regular recipe calls for. Plus they add an extra 1/4 stick of butter to each stick to make up for lost butter during the process. I think the 1/8 oz. per stick of butter is a nice way to ease into considering that an ounce of quality bud costs $400-$450 in my state.

    heres the bud to butter ratio I believe is the best.

    apparently, butter can absorb 5 grams of thc to every 1 gram of butter.

    how many grams of thc do you think are in 1 oz of bud? definitely not equal to the plant matter put into it.

    so theoretically, you can have up to 12 oz in one stick reasonably . . . . you'd need one tall ass thin container, and one cold night ;).

    but yeah, a little butter can absorb a LOT. you'll get so epic stoned you'll only need a quarter cookie . . . .

    Yo fuck butter use oil, doesn't take nearly as long, it's cheap and incredibly efficient.

    I prefer to use butter. much easier extraction process.

    you try making your oil cleaner with water, only to realize it wont stay up at the top by any means like butter, so there is no easy refining process, and plus there's no confirmation of how much oil can hold vs butter so I say it's more sound to just use butter.

    ive tired to make oil before but it didnt turn out well, cannaoil that is not honey oil., which would have been alot better. Im using about 3oz of trim to make my next batch of butter, probably gonna make about 3 sticks of butter worth

    uh no, 3 oz of trim goes into 1 stick of butter.

    don't dilute your shit, butter can easily hold up to 24 oz of trim if you had the right pan for it and container to make the butter solidify. or you could just skim off the thin layer lmao.

    either way, butter can absorb so much, so why do that 1oz of trim to 1 stick? that's just crap.

    then don't make edibles.

    they use a LOT of bud to get the specified effect. you need to be willing to make it concentrated or you're gonna have a light ass head buzz for your cookies. have fun eating 5 cookies to feel what I owuld feel with a half cookie.

    There isn't a correct way of doing it, full stop. People prefer different strengths. Experiment and find your preferred strength.

    I'm a little late to the party but I recently purchased Ganjalicious a cannabis cookbook which contains an excellent tAble for perfect measurements.

    Grades of weed:

    A: 2 hits gets the stoner high
    B: 1 bowl gets 3 people blazed
    C: 1 joint gets u buzzed
    D: 2 joints later you might be high

    Grade leaf butter oil alcohol
    A , 1/2 oz. 4 cups. 2 cups. 3 cups

    I'm a little late to the party but I recently purchased Ganjalicious a cannabis cookbook which contains an excellent tAble for perfect measurements. I have also included conversions for midnight oil and canna jungle juice. The storner proof way to make butter or oil is in a crockpot on low for 22 hrs. Just make sure you bud or trim is completely covered in bud or oil. If you are a co patient looking for butter oil or medicine post a reply.

    higher fat content is what the best butter or oil is,. its the fat that attrects the thc rsings. and the amounts or ratios is a personal choice. some have a higher tollerance depending on amounts consumed. like me..i run 4 oz bud to 1 pound butter. i dont wanna need 3 or 4 cookies to get better. 1 to 2 does it for me
    and dont simmer long times as i see some recipes claim. the thc converts to much and you will loose potency. i run for under 1 hour is all. and we have tested these and are a stronger baked good with less time. also low temps

    same as mine at 2 oz per pound. youve just doubled that recipe is all...hold on is all i can say if its bud. im about an average 1/2 oz a day smoker and i only need 1 to 2 at most to be messed up. i had a quite large person eat 4 and was in the toilet for 10 hours,.
