    I have a handfull of trimmings and I want to put it to use. Ive never done anything with my trimmings except throwing them away. So ive read that I can make some hash with them but im wondering if i can make sum butter instead. Which one would work the best for a newbie? And which method is easiest for a newbie. Plus rep for any good answers.

    yeah the DIY is good, you can also compost them, shake for hash with a jar and pantyhose, the water method(not for newb), or you can just plane smoke them.

    Little bit of water throw them in a crockpot on low with lid let them stew for a while. Strain them use the water to make hot tea drink and enjoy!!! Or use the water to make brownies depending on how much trimmings you have.

    lol, that wont work at all. thc and some cannaboids are not water soluble. if tea were to work it would require you have something for the thc and that good stuff to attache themselves to.

    Needless to say I skipped the whole part of putting in sweat unsalted butter into my original posting. Thanks for the point out. I think I'll smoke another one to that.

    Ive checked out how to make honey oil b4 and it takes some time and money to make. Im not down with using butana lighter fluid to make something Im going to consume. It looks good and ill try it if someone else did it. on the other hand. The whole cannabutter and hash idea sounds good... they both sound good but i got a handful of trimmings so im going with the cannabutter idea

    me too, lol, the rep i gave you a bit ago was before i read this post so what i said was when i assumed you didnt know what you were talking about very well instead of just forgetting part of it when you typed it up.. you still deserve the rep either way. lol, sorry i kinda jumped to conclusions there,i try not to do it as much as possible. i dislike the threads where people get bashed w/o being given a chance to explain themselves.(kinda off topic since it didnt happen here at all really, its more im just explaining why i dislike threads like that and people who do it) but it happens some times.my bad. :mrgreen::peace::joint:

    butane will give u most product and let u use it longer... u dont consume the oil u smoke it like weed....cannabutter is overated i think.. fun once a year when u want to waste some nug... i just find that the oil is better and stays around longer.. and if u get butane with zero additives then its fine... we all smoke with bic lighters and that butane is cheap as crap...just some food for thought
