CannaButter is a great way to add medicine to your favorite foods that call for butter, besides just brownies.
You will need:
- 1 pound of butter
- 1 ounces of medicine (underdeveloped flowers, trimmings and stems will work)
- 2 cups of water
- Cooking pot (with lid) preferably the same size as the cooking area to ensure even heating
- Measuring cup
- Coffee Grinder
- Cheesecloth (coffee filters work well too)
The video below will walk you through the steps
Salve or CannaBalm is similar in the making of CannaButter with a fatty-base, but rubbing butter over your body topically isn’t so appealing. Instead of butter most use coconut oil, olive oil, peanut oil, etc (make sure those using it do not have an allergy to any of these ingredients) as a base and then add in bees wax to give it the consistency. After you have those three main ingredients you can play around with it by adding vitamin E for skin care, essential oils to help with different topical and aromatic effect.
Salves can be used for skin care, arthritis, psoriasis, eczema, even up to 2nd degree burns. Salves however should not be applied directly to a freshly bleeding wound.
(From the video below) They mention the word decarboxylate, this is the chemical reaction to release carbon dioxide (CO2). Meaning the carboxylic acids lose a carbon atom from the carbon chain. This in turn converts THCA to THC. It’s done by placing the dry medicine into a crock pot at 190-200 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour or one could use the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes (keep in mind that all ovens vary so you may need to experiment).
- 2 cups of medicine (underdeveloped flowers, trimmings and stems will work)
- 2 ounces of Coconut Oil
- 2 ounces Bees Wax
- you may add essential oils, according to your own personal preference
You could make a Trans-dermal Patch which would be great for a night of reduced pain.
