Alright, so we’re unboxed, plugged in and ready to start making stuff; now what? Well, now we just need to pick up a few supplies. This will vary though, depending on what you’re planning to make. For tinctures, you just need some grain alcohol, but if you’re making edibles, you need to pick a solid or liquid fat to infuse it with. Butter is a great solid for infusion while coconut oil seems to work best for a liquid fat (yes, the butter does melt down and turn into a liquid, but it’s still considered a solid fat …I don’t know why; ask Bill Nye).
Next, you’re going to pour your fat into the machine. Let’s pretend we’re making cookies today, so we’re going to throw in some butter. Never use margarine or a butter substitute; THC and CBD are fat-soluble which means you need the fat from real butter in order to make the cannabinoids available to your system. THC and CBD won’t circulate throughout your brain or body without a fat present to extract them; they’ll just simply break down in your digestive tract and become waste, which is the exact opposite of what we want here.
Now, we’re almost set to start baking (another pun intended), we just need to add some cannabis. You know, some weed, ganja, herbs, bud, green, the loud stuff, that sticky icky; whatever you like to call it, we need some of that stuff. Take about 3-5 grams of whole buds, no need to grind, and add that into your Magical Butter Machine.
