    So Im gonna attempt to make Pot Brownies for the first time tommorrow using the Canna-Oil method. So the betty crocker brownies i bought call for 1/4 cup of water 3 eggs and 2/3 cup of oil. I dont really have a lot of money so I was wondering if a Quater Ounce of REGGIE not dank or high grade weed just reggie. So i wanted to kno if a Quarter Ounce Reggie woulf get me super high for a whole batch or if i should just cut the recipe in half EXCEPT for the oil part and keep it in the recipe to get totally blazed? Need ur advice!:mj2:

    Cutting the recipe in half EXCEPT for the oil may be tricky because it will be too much oil to be absorbed by the dry ingredients in the mix (unless you add a bit of flour to stiffen it up)
    The batter should be somewhat stiff...brownie batter should be fairly stiff to be fudgy in the middle, and btw for the liquid (water) they call for you can substitute strong, cold coffee for a mocha brownie.

    Now for the herb amount. That should work ok one thing tho you will lose some of the orginal volume of the 2/3 cup of oil due to straining. So that should help with the batter consistancy as well

    Thanks nova i think i'll just make the recipe the regular way dont wanna screw anything up. Btw how long do u think i should simmer it for im gonna use a double boiler. Some people say 20 minutes is too long. But others say 45-60 i just want to extract as much thc as possible without burning it. :D

    I personally prefer the longer method (with-in reason) an hour is ok. There is little chance of you burning the oil brcause you are using a double boiler.
    I personally have found to be certain all the thc is extracted, longer is better

    lmao glad it worked out for you....I like eating pot because it really helps with sleeping and minor aches and pains. Also really good for headaches I have found.

    well once again congrats on becoming a baker....

    ok so if i were to set my batch on fire and lost some of it because i read this all after i did that. if i still have a lot of what i was simmering in the oil(and i was simmering for about 13 min) will it still get me high when i put it in the brownies or do i have to start over or just buy a new batch all together? please help

    I just wanted to comment and ask a question. For THC to be effective it needs to be separated from the carboxyl group. This happens at roughly 110C. THC starts to degrade or become destroyed at roughly 180C. So for proper extraction wouldn't you have to keep the temperature between 110C and 180C? Then once it's extracted wouldn't you have to use it in recipes that do not exceed 180C. Otherwise all or a significant portion of the THC will degrade or burn off into the air rather bind with the oil/fat/alcohol.

    Do you recommend oil? I tried this for the oil. My Crockpot is older and only has off, low, and high setting. I tried this using the most resinous trim from our last harvest manicuring. I put the trim in the crockpot for about 3 hours on low. Also wondering if that is okay or should I only use actual crushed bud? This is my first time trying cooking.

    hey Arsenal you rock! thanks for the awesome tips. let me ask you a question? for making oils do you recommend using vegetable glycerin or do you go with the normal grain alcohol approach typically?

    anybody with any answers regarding the oil please reply

    Got 1/2 oz of some sticky icky. Wanting to make some edibles but have no experience. I did get some helpful info from some of these posts, but I'm nervous cuz it seems a lot can go wrong when cooking with it. I'm motivated to try because I need a more inconspicuous way of ingesting MJ, plus I know that smoking results in most of the THC being exhaled. Just wondering exactly how much I should use. I was thinking maybe 1/4 oz, which is half of what I got at the moment, and it is high grade. Was thinking of making mac & cheese, which requires a half stick of butter. So, 1/4 oz of good stuff mixed with half stick of butter, prepared as described in the original post, will that work? Should I use more/less bud? Also, how long would 1/4 oz need to be simmered?
