When making marijuana edibles, you don’t just throw the marijuana buds into the food and eat down, believe it or not. The THC – the key ingredient in marijuana must first be extracted into a butter or oil mixture and then cooked or added with the food.
This article will describe about how you can make pot brownies Boulder and extract the THC using butter or oil, however, most brownies recipes ask for oil instead of butter.
What Do You Need for Oil Method?
1. Oil (any other than olive oil)
2. 2.5 grams of weed per serving
3. Wood spoon
4. Filter like coffee filter
5. Brownie mix
6. Frying pan
For an whole batch of brownies a half ounce of dank or an ounce of mids is needed. Grind up the marijuana in your grinder several times until it fully turns into powder.
Once the marijuana turns into a powder spread it right onto a frying pan. However, it is a good idea to match the frying pan to the burner size for an even cook, which is crucial when extracting the THC. Pour oil directly over the marijuana powder in the pan according to how much the brownie recipe asks for.
Turn the burner on low until it starts to simmer and then lower the burner to the lowest setting. Leave the burner on for 2-6 hours and stir the marijuana in the oil every 30 minutes with a wooden spoon.
When the pot is done, pour the oil mixture into a filter to strain all the excess marijuana out. A musky brown color oil must be left without any grass, stems, or seeds in it. This stuff needs to be filtered out as there is no THC left because it was extracted into the oil.
Now, use this oil to make the brownies by following the instructions written on the brownie box. If you prefer to make pot brownies using butter rather than oil, continue reading.
Using Butter Method
The requirements for butter method are similar to one used in oil method. In order to use butter to extract the THC and bake pot brownies Boulder, two pots are needed, one larger and one smaller. The larger one should be filled up with clean water. Place the smaller pot inside the larger one and throw in 2-3 sticks of butter.
Turn the burner on a low setting until the water in the larger pots starts to simmer. The water in the larger pot will heat up the THC in the marijuana in the the smaller pot without burning it which could destroy the THC, making the brownies useless.
Proceed to leave the the burner on for 2-3 hours, or longer. Then, pour the butter through a filter removing any seeds, stems, or left over marijuana bud which is useless as the THC is now in the butter. Spread this butter throughout the bottom of a large pan and pour the brownie mixture on top. Cook in the oven (350 degrees) for 30 minutes to an hour and your perfect brownies will be ready.
