Only for Marijuana Seasoned Verterans

An article from reddit...

Personally, I don't care for the Lon Lon recipe that's popular around here (I haven't actually tried it, but I tend to think of r/trees as a more of a noobie board concerning this kind of thing). I use non-homogenized whole milk (where I live, I get the Strauss Family Creamery brand) because I want to get the fattiest, fattiest fat I can possibly find for this. I do half gallon batches in a pressure cooker. I was adding a half teaspoon of soy lecithin as an emulsifier but this last batch I forgot to and it still turned out great--so it's your call.
Anyway, Supply list:
  • half gallon of whole milk.
  • Pressure cooker (so we don't lose moisture during the simmer).
  • About a QP of sugar trim, if you've got buds use two ounces.
  • Soy lecithin if you want.
  • a plain white T shirt cut in half for straining
  • a wire strainer to support the T shirt
  • some heavy rubber gloves for squeezing out the T shirt (it'll still be hot)
  • small bottles to distribute and freeze in--I buy travel shampoo bottles from Target and don't distribute the milk to them until it has cooled significantly.
Put the milk in the pressure cooker and put it on medium heat. You want to heat the milk not to boiling but just before. We don't want the fat to separate but we do want it to be pretty hot. When you see a line of film forming around the edge of the pot, you're getting really close. When it's up to temperature, add your product. Give it a few minutes to come back to temperature, then seal the lid on and reduce heat to the absolutely lowest possible setting. This can be tricky with gas ranges that like to blow out, so actually an electric stove is advantageous here. Let it sit for about two hours.
After two hours, remove from heat. Let everything cool for a while before you open it. We don't want the steam to escape--we want it to condense and remain with the milk. I've plugged my sink to make cool-water baths to set the cooker in before when I was impatient. After cooling, open 'er up and strain through the T shirt, supported by the wire strainer. Ball up the T shirt and with your gloves on, squeeze all of that liquid out that you possibly can. Remember, this stuff is active for some people at the half teaspoon, so every little bit you can squeeze out counts! Discard the leftover leaf/bud material.
All that's left is to separate out into individual bottles and store them. I like to refrigerate my bottles overnight before freezing them and always make sure there's room for the ice to expand (I've had a bottle or two rupture). Unfrozen, the milk should keep as long as milk usually does, well refrigerated for about two weeks or so. If you freeze, you'll get months. You can refreeze up to once, but I've heard if you freeze more than that you'll really damage the quality of the milk. If you're using non-homogenized milk like I am, you'll need to shake vigorously as the cream will rise to the top.
Dosage. I like to use the little plastic cups that come with cough syrup for this, but measuring spoons and a shot glass will work, too. Remember, one nearly full shot glass = one fluid ounce = 30ml. For lightweights, I've found that a half teaspoon (5ml) to a quarter shot (1.5tsp or 15ml) is plenty. For seasoned stoners, a half shot might be appropriate. Anything beyond a full ounce I would consider to be a heroic dose. Lately, with my tolerance creeping up, I've been dosing nearer and nearer to that one ounce line, but if I'm using good product to make it with, 3/4 will still put me on my ass. I have a tendency to dose it kind of high, though.
The first time I had this milk, I was dosed with a full shot made with processed Chem D buds, two ounces to the half gallon. It was quite the epic experience. Those who were there to witness it still consider it stuff of legend. I trippedHARD. You probably don't want to trip as hard as I did, though. Luckily, I was at a friend's place out in the country with no neighbors for acres around so they weren't bothered by my continuous hour of uncontrollable screaming. (I was fine, it's just the trigger in my brain to scream was pinging hard) Make sure you have chaperones if you're going to dose hard, too. Strong edibles can make you behave in ways you never ever thought you would behave.

And they just keep coming

Pot brownies

Pot brownies are one of the most pleasant, tastefull and healthy way to use your pot. Pot brownies taste is delightfull, much better than the smoke and most of all brownies do not pollute your lungs as the pot joint does. Here are a few good recipies for pot brownies, including basic pot butter, famous space cakes and some more interesting ideas to try.

Pot butter - basic and cruicial ingredient of any pot brownies

A quick pot butter recipie
  1. You'll need two pots of different sizes. Pour some water in the larger one and put butter in the small one. Now put the pots small inside the larger one and You're ready to melt down the butter.
  2. After the butter has melted, add pot in the amount of Your desire. Remember, the more pot You add to the mixture, the stronger the cookies will become ;)
    (Proportions example: 1 ounce of pot to 6-7 sticks of butter)
  3. Simmer the mixture for about 25 min and remember to stir it every few minutes.
  4. Give it a few minutes to cool down a bit and then strain out the butter into deep plate or a bowl.
  5. Squeeze all the juice out of it and put aside to cool down.
  6. Once cooled to room temperature put in fridge for few hours to coagulate.
  7. Have fun ;)
The best pot butter recipie
Pot brownies true story:
Policeman steals evidence, then makes pot cookies, trips and calls 911
The first step in cooking magical cannabis-laced foods is extracting the cannabinoids (THC, CBD, and many many more) from the plant matter, usually in a oil/fat/butter-based solution, since the cannabinoids do not readily dissolve in water. My best FOAF has a method for doing this that he has not seen mention of in this forum. He got it from a little book called _The Art and Science of Cooking with Cannabis_, by Adam Gottlieb, orignally published in 1974. Gottlieb calls the product of the extraction `CANNABUTTER'.
The procedure is actually very simple. He brings a pot of water to a rolling boil, then puts a small amount of butter in the water. Quickly, the butter melts, and mixes in with the water because the whole mixture is at a rolling boil.
Then he puts the grass in and boils it. (Of course, he separates all the seeds first so he can plant them in the nearby park.) Now all the grass is riling around with the water and butter, and get this: The cannabinoids dissolve into the butter, while most of the nasty flavors and gook dissolve into the water. He stirs the stuff regularly. After cooking the grass like this for a while (say, half an hour), his kitchen really smells incriminating. He strains out the spent plant matter, squeezes all the juice out of it, and puts the liquid in the fridge.
A few hours later, the mixture is cool enough that the cannabutter has solidified on the surface. It looks kind of scummy, but its just enchanted butter. He scoops it out and retains it in a bowl or a jar. The grass-nasty water is thrown out.
Although this method takes longer than the usual saute-n-strain method, it has several advantages:
  • As explained above, the nasty shit is separated and removed from the fun shit.
  • You can make stronger cannabutter than by saute-ing, because you can cook more grass in the same amount of butter, due to the extra volume of the water.
  • There is no danger of burning the precious, price-inflated, hard and dangerous to obtain herb, as there is when you saute, because the water keeps the whole mixture at boiling temperature!
The cannabutter can be used just like butter, in brownies, on garlic bread,
or mixed with honey on your finger!
Pot butter comments:
Smells - I've only made cannibutter once, it turned out great, but it definitly had a strong odor when I was cooking it. It almost smells like a mix between really really dank pot and cooking spinach. The following day, the kitchen still wreaked of weed. My advice for those who are worried about smells, is to go outside somewhere and bring a campstove or something. Cooking outside would prevent you from stinking up your house/apartment. If you had a backyard, that would be great, though I'de be careful of nosy neighbors, ect. Maybe cooking at night would be best.
As for butter/food ratio -- When using the cannibutter to bake deserts, ect, try to keep the butter to food ratio as low as possible. Don't make giant cakes, instead make a small batch of brownies. It's better to eat a smaller more powerful brownie -- your body digests it quicker, therfor giving you a stronger high. If you eat a lof of food, the thc is released into your bloodstream at a slower rate, therfor decreasing the intensity of your high.
When I made brownies, I used about a quarter of pot to each stick of butter. This made the butter very potent. As for not straining -- you can do this, but your food/butter will have bits of weed in it...and honestly, the pot doesn't taste very good at all.
Start with a small dose -- Eating pot brownies gives much stronger effect than smoking pot. there really is no set dose, it all depends upon how much pot you used to make the butter, and how much food you've combined the cannibutter with. If you eat too much you may just get too high and want to sleep/pass out. Also try taking a bit of the cannibutter and spreading it ontop of a ritz cracker or something -- this would be a good dose to test out the potency of your butter.

Sheriff Baca says pot dispensaries are a crime target. 'More reason to legalize' marijuana, readers respond

In the wake of a triple murder in West Hollywood stemming from a large drug deal gone bad over a large quantity of medical marijuana, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca stated this week that the industry has been taken over by drug dealers, thus the growing violence.
"The medicinal marijuana program that voters authorized years ago has been hijacked by underground drug-dealing criminals who are resorting to violence in order to control their piece of the action," Baca said during a news conference Wednesday. "There are predators armed and seeking easy dollars in sales of marijuana."
Over 70 readers of the article commented on the Times story, most of them like Kennet expressed the feeling, "More reason to legalize it!"

Marc Emery Prosecutor Now Says Legalize Marijuana

In a Seattle Times op-ed Saturday, former US Attorney for the Western District of Washington John McKay defected to the other side. As the federal prosecutor in Seattle, McKay oversaw the indictment and prosecution of Canadian marijuana seed seller and pot advocate Marc Emery, who now sits in an American federal detention facility awaiting the formal handing down of a five-year prison sentence later this month.
But while he thinks Emery and most pot-smokers are "idiots," McKay has come to see the futility of continuing to enforce marijuana prohibition. "As Emery's prosecutor and a former federal law-enforcement official, however, I'm not afraid to say out loud what most of my former colleagues know is true: Our marijuana policy is dangerous and wrong and should be changed through the legislative process to better protect the public safety," he wrote.

Marijuana prohibition "has utterly failed," McKay concluded. "The demand for marijuana in this country has for decades outpaced the ability of law enforcement to eliminate it," he declared, ready to throw in the towel.

"Brave agents and cops continue to risk their lives in a futile attempt to enforce misguided laws that do not match the realities of our society," he wrote. "These same agents and cops, along with prosecutors, judges and jailers, know we can't win by arresting all those involved in the massive importation, growth or distribution of marijuana, nor by locking up all the pot smokers."

Pot prohibition fills the pockets of "Mexican and other international drug cartels and gangs," even though marijuana is nowhere nearly as harmful to users as other illegal drugs, McKay wrote.

"So the policy is wrong, the law has failed, the public is endangered, no one in law enforcement is talking about it and precious few policymakers will honestly face the soft-on-crime sound bite in their next elections. What should be done?" McKay asks.

It is a rhetorical question, of course, and McKay has answers: Recognize that the real public safety danger to Americans is not from marijuana but from prohibition, build policy on "sound science, not myth," and... drum roll please... "We should give serious consideration to heavy regulation and taxation of the marijuana industry (an industry that is very real and dangerously underground). We should limit pot's content of the active ingredient THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), regulate its sale to adults who are dumb enough to want it and maintain criminal penalties for sales, possession or use by minors, drivers and boaters."

Not to worry, though, McKay assures his erstwhile partners in the prohibition racket. There will be years to come of extirpating criminality from the former black market, and that means job security: "DEA and its law-enforcement partners must therefore remain well equipped and staffed to accomplish this task: to protect our families from truly dangerous drugs and to drive drug cartels, gangs and dope dealers from our society."

Still, a remarkably candid confession from a man who made a living prosecuting marijuana offenders. Too bad he didn't find himself on the road to Damascus when he still had the prosecutors' powers.
