    Baking a batch of fun

    We're going to a friend's birthday party tomorrow and planning to bring a few trays of brownies. Should be fun 😎

    Tonight we're making 2 batches of butter in crock pot: 1 batch with 1oz. of Cookies Kush per 2 sticks of butter and another batch using same amount of everything but with Northern Lights.

    Any tips or fun edible stories to share?

      So let me get this strait, you're mixing weed and butter? I've never done anything like that but would love to learn how to. That's really cool you know how to make edibles. Should be a fun party, should play a game after you eat the brownies, something fun like twister.✌️

        Yeah so there's a guide on here which says put your weed in the oven at 250F for 1 hour to "decarboxylate" (turn the THCA into the THC we know and love) then steep the decarb weed with the butter in a crock pot. THC goes into butter and then it's party time in the kitchen

        This is my first time making

            Ended up making 2 pretty big containers of cannabutter. Used ,like 10% to make 2 trays of hopefully potent brownies and looking forward to trying tonight. Will post photos when I'm not on mobile

          I've only ever made butter once, and it tasted soooo bad that I've never bothered to do it again. ocgreen Happy Birthday to your friend, let us know how the brownies go down.

          My next edible experiment is going to be jello shots made with a concentrated alcohol extraction.

            First time making Cannabutter?! Yay for you! You will want to open all your windows, as both the decarbing and cooking are going to make your entire house smell like the back room of a head shop (not a bad thing, in my opinion -- and you do seem to catch a small buzz in the process). Also, the cardinal rule for baking with weed -- DO NOT SET YOUR OVEN HIGHER THAN 340 DEGREES. Any higher, and you might just as well have used plain ol' margarine. Alas, the voice of experience. With brownies, you can simply extend your baking time 5-10 minutes, no problem. I like to make brownie bark, which is just thinner batter baked on a sheet pan. I take mine out while it's still a little wet on top and add toppings (chopped pecans, walnuts, toasted coconut, crushed candy canes for Christmas, etc.), then return to oven to finish cooking. If you score the top while it's still warm, after cooling you can break it up in serving size pieces. Makes one batch of brownies go a long way! Good luck, and I can foresee you being the hit of your friend's party!

              😂 bang on description of how my kitchen smelled last night. Bark sounds like a delicious idea for next time -- we baked some "plain jane brownies" (bad pun intended) this morning and excited to try them out tonight. Bark next time for sure

              340 degrees is way too high for decarbing weed.

              ocgreen Have you heard of the Ardent Nova decarb machine? It's a lot more precise than an oven for decarbing weed:

                I picked up a Nova and love it. No mess and the smell is minimal (only when opening it up at the end). You can also do small amounts of infused oil in it as well (decarb, then put the herb and ~1oz oil in a small jar back in for a second cycle).

              Happy to report the brownies were a hit! I ended up eating a few to really get a good buzz going but individuals with less tolerance ended up getting silly after just one.... or less!

              Lots of fun stories to tell but in the interest of time will just say my favourite part was the live mariachi band... I quite simply have never enjoyed mariachi as much as I did that night... and there may be some photos of me dancing around with one of their massive hats on 😅

              Anyways we made about 40 brownies and this is what was left by end of night 🤗

                Ocgreen, that's awesome!!!!

                It's always a good time when you can cut the mood and everyone just has fun. We need more of that now days to help everyone understand that we are all in the same boat, just trying to survive and do the best we can. Glad they were a hit and very cool if you too do that. ✌️

                  ocgreen Wonderful!! And the thing is, cultivating Cannabis and ingesting home grown herb produced the revolution in my thinking. The whole process of growing her with love transforms everything--both me and the bud. There is absolutely no comparison whatsoever between my home grown and what I used to get on the street. Hip hip hurrah for you and wife!!!!!

                  alltatup I like to think that I've become a better person since I started growing; can't put it into words, but there was something about bringing this plant all the way from old, thought to be nonviable seeds that were going to be tossed out--so yet another 'stray' given a second chance on my watch. These plants definitely know when they're respected and loved and return the favor.

                Oc,

                Once people realize that cannabis is a medicine and not a drug, things will lighten up. It's really easy to get caught up in the madness of life especially when living in the city. One person at a time. People forget really easily that we come into this world with nothing and leave with nothing. What's left when you're gone is what kind things you did and helpful words. It's so simple but people = sheeple. It's like people have forgotten about life, if you look around now days everyone's looking at their phones and not reach other anymore, and now more than ever we need to be in contact with reach other to help or just to be there sometimes. Mentors are a dying breed my friend.✌️

                  ocgreen Sometimes I think that two subspecies of homo sapiens evolved: one with a conscience and one without. Let's call that subspecies homo psychopathicus or homo trumpicus, and its members are greedy, competetive, destructive, ambitious and power-hungry; they love to dominate and they don't have feelings of connection to others. The other subspecies cares about other humans, other species and the natural world, and just plain old doesn't worship money. Sometimes it really seems this simple to me...

                  "Homo Trumpicus"...I like that. Explains a lot actually...

                  My dad likes to say that as technology evolves, humans devolve. A friend uses maps on her phone for everything, even places we've been to before that are literally three blocks away--she can't navigate streets by landmarks at all. I know some people want to interbreed (for lack of a better term) humans and computers but IMO that can only end in disaster; I'm convinced that we don't grasp the full consequences of such a thing.

                Alltatup,

                Very cool analogy, and I couldn't agree with you more, other than the part of this bring a theory, I believe it's true. Maybe not meant to be like that but evolved like that due to position in life or surroundings or subcultures, that part is just a guess. I have zero idea how they sleep at night other than having zero remorse about anything. It literally blows my mind how a person can extend their have out to help and they take the whole hand, not what's in it. I have tried for years to try and believe that you just need to keep trying because they are so hurt and that's why they act as such. But I'm starting to not even lean, more like fall in the direction that it's some kind of mind block or another breed all together, and not the standard Alpha male or female. I was aloha for a long time but also cared about the pack, helping the weakest member versus EATING that member.. Hope everyone's having a good start to the day. I bet we could talk on this subject forever, and I would find it interesting.✌️
