Cannabutter: Yum

Recently my grandmother asked me for some Mary Jane but she didn’t want to smoke it so I had to find a way for her to have the full effect without having to smoke and so of course that means it was time to make edibles! It took some investigating but quickly it was clear that all one has to do to make edibles is make cannabutter. Once you have the cannabutter anything that you need butter for can be made into an edible. And I do mean anything; lasagna, mac and cheese, lollipops, pancakes, cookies, whatever.  There are other options too such as coconut oil but I took the butter route and this is how I did it: [read more=”Read More” less=”Read less”] Initially I followed this instructional video: But just the cannabutter part and I did do it a little differently.

Things you need:

  • 1/2 oz of weed, buds or trim or both, also important to note here is the better the strain, the better the butter.
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter

  • A pot and a glass bowl that fits in the pot with a lid
  • cheese cloth
  • strainer

This is how I did it:

  1. Before anything and not mentioned in the video you need to decarboxylate the bud by grinding it, putting it on a parchment paper and then in the oven at 220 degrees for 30 minutes to pull out the terpenes.
  2. Next the video says to wrap your weed in a cheese cloth, I’m sure you can but I didn’t. I just put water in a pot on the stove and start heating it on a low flame.
  3. Once my water was boiling I put a glass bowl in the pot with the water still heating under it and I chopped up my 2 sticks of butter and put it in the glass bowl.
  4. Once my butter melted I added one cup of water and my ground decarboxlated weed to the melted butter and put the lid on.
  5. Then I camped out in my kitchen for 2 hours stirring the weed with the butter every now and then, always checking there was water in the pot beneath the glass bowl (and refilling the water).
  6. 2 hours past and I put a cheese cloth on my strainer, then strained my melted bud filled butter into another bowl. I strained it very good, repeatedly and then put that bowl in the frig and went to sleep.
  7. The next day I pulled my solid cannabutter out of the bowl in the frig and used it to make my grandma cookies.

For it being the first time I’ve ever done this, I did very good. I did use real kush bud, not trim and maybe that’s why my cookies were so strong. To say the least everyone, especially grandma felt the nice mellow stoned body high for hours! The next few days after I used what I had left over of my cannabutter to make eggs and pancakes and now I’m planning to figure out how to make coconut oil to make some chocolate covered something or at least some more butter to make a lasagna. For being a weed smoker, I’ve got to say it took a while to kick in but I loved the body high and how long it last. For me it starts with a tingling in my lips… and I feel literally “stoned” for hours. I think the cookie monster has been eating these for years because I can’t get the idea of “Cookiessss” (In the cookie monster voice) out of my mind. Definitely edibles are so worth the time it takes to make the cannabutter.  I highly recommend trying it out! Stay lit! [/read]

How to Make a Bong with your Liquor Bottles

If you follow me on Instagram then most likely you’ve seen my skull head bong. A lot of you guys gave me some great feedback and even said you wanted one. So I figured it be easy just to show you all how to make you’re own homemade bong from your liquor bottles, which is essentially what I did!

[read more=”Read More” less=”Read less”]
In case you haven’t seen it in action here you go:

And here’s how to make one:

I started with a empty bottle of Crystal Head Vodka, because it’s a cool bottle, it’s a skull, it’s great vodka and it’s dope. The bottle cost almost $55 dollars here with tax but is does come with vodka.

But you can use any bottle you like. I’ve seen some gun shaped Tequila bottles at Binny’s too that would probably be cool.

Okay once you have you’re desired soon to be bong bottle you need a couple things.

  1. A diamond tip 3/8 drill bit. I got mine at Menards for about $10.00:
  2. You need a drill
  3. You need an 18mm drop stem,  14mm glass bowl and rubber stopper found at your local head shop:

That’s it. Now you drill. I placed my hole on the back of the skull head.

This is the only tricky part. The diamond tip drill bit is designed to drill into glass but when you drill into glass it can get hot and it can shatter. So you hold your bottle steady in the sink and let cold water run on it while you drill so not to shatter the bottle. I actually only had a little trickle running over my bottle while drilling but once you get that hole your in the clear.

Just rinse out the bottle, make sure you got all the glass out then put the rubber stopper, tube and bowl in the bottle as so:

And you’re done. Fill with water, pack your bowl and enjoy!
