Safer than spuds According to Judge Francis Young of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), “cannabis is one of the least toxic substances known to man, less toxic than raw potatoes”. The scientific measurement of toxicity is the therapeutic ratio – effective dose:lethal dose. The therapeutic ratio of alcohol is 1:20, of aspirin 1:35, of Cannabis between 1:20,000 and 1:40,000.

Cannabis is a truly gifted medicinal herb that can really heal with minimum side effects. CannaButter Here are a few things to think about before making your first batch of CannaButter. Boiling the mixture will cut down the time needed to make CannaButter, but this practice may burn the butter and destroy some of the THC. Be patient and simmer on a low heat. Don't try to dry and smoke the leftover weed. If you did it right, all the THC is in the butter. Always use real, unsalted butter. Don't cut corners with spreads or butter substitutes. Don't use cannabis seeds and stems. The first time, stick with buds, shake or trimmings if you can. All butter, including CannaButter, tolerates storage at room temperature for short periods of time. For the best results, store your CannaButter in the fridge. Note that a CannaButter high is more intense and often lasts 4 times longer than smoking. Start off slow until you know much you can handle. A large pot with lid, spoon, strainer, cloth, large bowl. Water (Enough to keep the herb floating 50mm above the bottom of the pot) Unsalted Butter 500 grams Cannabis 30 grams with all stalks and seeds removed. The Cannabis to butter ratio can vary to suit your need. 1:1 weight ratio for weak leaf. Method Heat the water on low until it reaches a simmer. Add the butter and allow it to melt. Add the Cannabis. Simmer for about four hours. Cover the pot to reduce evaporation. Stir occasionally. Add small amounts of water if the pot starts to dry up. When done, the mixture will look much like dirty bong water with a thick, glossy layer on top. Line a strainer with cheesecloth. Strain the mixture into a large bowl to remove all the weed fragments. Allow to cool then refrigerate. The THC-infused CannaButter separates from the water as it cools. Remove the firm CannaButter from the water in the bowl and store it in the fridge or freezer. Method Combine flour baking powder and salt and set aside. Cream together CannaButter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time and then add vanilla, slowly add flour mixture until well blended. Cover and refridgerate 2 hours.
