    So I am considering making some cannabutter. I don't plan to use the butter in baking but rather to just eat it plain on a teaspoon. What I have available to me is a quarter ounce of pretty good Reggie. Probably close to mid grade quality. A few hits is usually enough to get me pretty stoned. I plan to let the butter simmer in a crock pot on low for 24 hours. Planning to use a quarter ounce to a pound of butter. Wondering if at that ratio a teaspoon eaten directly will be concentrated enough to get me as stoned as a few hits off of a bowl.

    from my past history, 7 grams to 4 sticks of butter is not nearly enough...

    We don't get butter in sticks here just 1lb blocks but if a stick is 1/4lb/113.5g like I think it is then it's going to be pretty weak.

    I use coconut oil to make cocobudder and with decent bud a tsp of my 10:1 makes me go to bed about an hour or more after taking it. So for a full stick at that size you'd need 11g of good bud. Using mids more like 16g or more.

    Make it the way you said and maybe you'll just have to take a larger dose to get the effect you desire.

    Have fun!

    Just reread your OP and realize you plan to use a whole pound so for sure it will be weak as hell. Just use one stick at most.

    Have fun!

    I'm not mixing a quarter to a stick because for me that would be a waste. It normally takes me 3 months to smoke a quarter. Anyway I'm not making the butter after all. I'm either going to just keep smoking it or dab it. Smoking is the simplest so I think I'm just gonna stick with that.

    Sounds like a plan. I used 30g of bud to 300g of combined coconut oil and sunflower lecithin to make my last batch and just gave it to a friend's wife who just had a cancerous lump removed from her rt boob. Glad I had it to give them.

    It's mostly about the medicine for me. Got high as a kite for most of my life with pot and really don't like being high all the time to treat my arthritis and depression. Shatter etc are for the stoner crowd and that hasn't been me for 20 years. Used to call me Iron Lungs when we were into hot-knifing black hash tho. :)

    I have a half pound or so of a half dozen strains and a 250ml jar full of keif so not running out of soon.

    :peace:

    Yeah I buy quarters of Reggie for $35 and that lasts me about three months like I said. I typically take a few hits at a time and it's enough to get me comfortably stoned but I also do it for the medicinal effects as well. My blood pressure is perfect and it helps my arthritis too. I have pain but I can function. I actually didn't touch weed at all for 11 years and just started smoking again at the beginning of this year. I've spent less than $100 bucks on weed for the entire year and I smoke pretty regularly. Although I did run out and a friend gave me a couple grams of purple drank. But that's gone and I'm getting another quarter of my usual tomorrow. Part of it is the fact that I don't smoke every single day and the other part is that I actually smoke very conservatively. I use bowls instead of paper and like I said I only take a few hits at a time, usually close to bed.

    I just hit little bits in a $10 pipe for quick relief but eat my cocobudder for almost 24 hours of pain relief and a happier mood. Roll a joint for company but that's maybe 4 a year.

    If you've got arthritis too you should try to get some pot that is at least 1:1 CBD/THC. I got 10g of Sweet Skunk CBD from a compassion club in BC a year ago and made cocobudder out of that. It's 2:1 Best 6 weeks I'd had in years so ordering something similar from the same guy. None of the other left when I was there in Aug again. I'm way up in northern Alberta and I think there may be one dispensary in all of Alberta.

    Ahh see I'm in the states and it's not legal where I live. Makes it harder to get high quality strains. I get mine from a connection I trust. I do appreciate the advice but I'll stick with what I've been getting.
