    Hi guys!
    So, yesterday was my first attempt at making pot brownies w cannabutter but I think I must have done something wrong since I didn't feel anything AT ALL. I've eaten pot brownies and cookies in the past where I didn't feel anything on those occasions either, but I later on learned that they were made wrong - where the weed was just thrown in with the other ingredients. Since I didn't want to waste any product, I did a lot of research before attempting to bake the brownies and followed all the steps I learned were required and necessary.

    This is what I did:
    1. First, I grinder up ~10grams of herb and laid it out evenly over baking paper on a pan in the oven for about 35-40 mins at 220 degrees Fahrenheit for the decarboxylation process to take place.
    2. While the herb cooled from the decarb process, I started to melt 2 sticks of unsalted butter in a double boiling pan..
    3. Once the butter melted, I turned the stovs down to simmer (number 2 on my oven) and added the decarbed herb and 1 cup of water.
    3. I stirred for a few minutes at first, then I stirred every 30-60 mins as the butter was left to simmer for about 4.5 hrs.
    4. Once I took the butter off of the stove, I strained the butter from the herb into a glass bowl, covered it w foil, and left it in the fridge for about 6 hrs.
    5. Once the butter was solid, I removed the nasty brownish water.
    6. I bought Pillsbury brownie mix and followed the baking instructions on the box.. In place of the oil, I used approximately one stick of canna butter
    7. Finally, I shoved the pan w the brownie mix in the oven and let it bake about 35 mins at 325 degrees.

    The brownies came out a little soggy since I baked them at a lower temp - being afraid to burn off the THC, I didn't want to risk baking at a higher temperature.
    I ate about 2 medium sized brownies at first.. After noticing no effect for about 1.5 hrs, I ate 2 more - and still nothing :( I've eaten almost half of the pan with not a zilch.
    I was vaporizing the same kind of bud I made the butter w while waiting for the brownies to kick in.. Could that have had an influence? Or maybe I have built such a high tolerance? Even though ingesting is supposed to be a lot more intense. Could it be possible that some people are unable to experience the high when ingested? - might be a stupid assumption but I really don't know what I did wrong.
    I would really appreciate anyone's feedback whose had experience cooking w weed.. Thanks guys for taking the time to read this :) hope to hear back soon
