Infusing Ideas

I’ve been enjoying baking with cannabutter. I made caramels that tasted horrible but worked great. I made peanut butter / chocolate things that were supposed to be peanut butter cups but I didn’t quite plan for that well enough, though they tasted good..

I tend to find a recipe and kinda go along with it. LOL But, I don’t want to ruin my creations by half-assing it and wasting my weed. I’m not made of money…. yet.

I thought gummies would be a good choice. I found a recipe without infused coconut oil since my son thinks he’s allergic to it. (He’s not, but whatevs.) The recipe called for 3-4 T of cannabutter and it would make about 100 gummies. However, in my math ratios, 4 T of cannabutter(3.5 grams of cannabis) only makes 12-15 servings of the strength we need. Based on the size mold I was going to get, that would equate to eating 9 gummies. Not to mention the huge amount of work involved.

Did you know there’s a tincture method? I’ve made tinctures before with essential oils, but never weed. So today I will get a bottle of everclear and give that a go. I’m going to use 7 grams of cannabis flower, decarboxylated, with 375ml of everclear. It’s supposed to sit for a couple weeks. I probably won’t wait that long. It also says it can be ready in 3 hours. I’ll let ya know! ♥
