Cannabutter Top Tips
One of the most important things to remember when using cannabutter is that it is very hard to get an accurate dosage. This generally applies to the actual process of making the cannabutter as well as decarboxylation and decarbing weed in the microwave.
The strength of your final cannabutter result depends entirely on the strength of the bud that you use and how many times you process the butter or oil. Check out our article about how to make stars of death edibles for more information and explanation on the strength.
Before you begin cooking with your homemade cannabutter, it is important that you check just how strong your cannabutter is. The best way to do this is to spread a small amount of your cannabutter on some bread or a cracker, eat it and see how it affects you.
If you feel a significant effect, you know that the butter is strong and you can use less in your cooking. If you feel a slight effect, you know that the strain is weaker and you can be more generous with the cannabutter when you are cooking.
If you are going to give your cannabutter cooking to other people, it is a good idea to explain the strength of the cannabutter to them in regard to your own tolerance.
This can help your friends and loved ones to make an informed decision about whether they will indulge and how much they will have. If you do end up consuming too much cannabutter, it is possible to ride out the undesirable side effects.
However, if you want a more immediate solution, consuming black pepper can help to counteract the effects of the weed. This can be useful to remember if you are giving cannabutter to inexperienced friends.
Cannabutter is a great way to feel the effects of weed without nasty health risks. Consuming your weed rather than smoking it is much healthier for you and creates more of a slow-burn high that can feel more intense.
