This week is still going, and so far I am still surviving but we shall see if I am still standing come Monday.
This video is me just hanging out and talking about concentrates and how they work. I am smoking on Binske’s Tangerine Diamonds and Sauce, and then some of CSC’s Very Berry Wax.
I also talk about the Black Lives Matter Movement and why we can’t stop protesting and marching. Many families are still awaiting justice for their loved ones, including those that have happened over the last three days.
If you are going to march, please be careful make sure to wear a face mask because we are still in a pandemic. If you live in a large city like New York, Oakland, LA, NOLA, etc please wear long sleeves, have a hard hat, eye goggles, gloves, and any other items to protect yourself from police escalation.
Welcome back to another Munchie Monday’s in my Kush Kitchen!
Guys, I used to hate making infused butter aka cannabutter. It was a long and smelly process but it’s necessary for any Kush Kitchen.
After some research and experimentation, I have found the best way to make you own cannabutter!
I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, like my immersion blender, it’s well loved and has become a staple in my kitchen. I’m sure any other pressure cooker would work just as well, but you may need to tweak the time or settings.
I knew I needed to make 2 sticks of cannabutter, with one stick containing 100mg of extract
200mg (mg I want in butter) / .7125 (Potency) = 280.701mg
280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g of wax needed. Further rounded to .28g of wax.
*** I used more cannabis CO2 oil in mine because future recipes require it. The butter amount remains the same.
Place your concentrate into a glass dish or canning jar. The instant pot comes with a wire rack for steaming, or use a different way elevate the dish. Place dish and fill the pot with water. The water level should rise midway up the container.
Close your pressure cooker and seal. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes, turn off warming feature.
When the instant pot finishes decarbing our concentrate, do an instant realize. You can cover the steam spout with a towel.
Place softened butter into your container. It will begin to melt and mix into our oil. Place the lid on with the valve set to seal. Place on high pressure for 15 minutes.
Once again do an instant release of pressure. Mix the butter to ensure even dispersion. Remove from instant pot, and blend for about 5 minutes while bowl cools down.
Place in fridge and let cool for 1-2 hours.
That’s it! Literally!
You can use this butter in cookies, brownies, to flavor your veggies! Use in a ‘baked’ potato, or mix with cinnamon for a cinnamon butter to pair with toast or biscuits.
Don’t use this to sear or fry food as that will cause the THC to degrade. This butter is meant to add flavor and should not be used if the temperature will go over 350F
How are you gonna use this recipe? What infused recipes would you like to see?
I’m unemployed. Still stings to say it but honestly I’m actually pretty thankful about it. I thought it was my dream job, and thought it was gonna give me the freedom to just create. There was way to much change going on without necessary leadership for guidance. It also became obvious that my creative freedom had very defined limits and that it was an uphill battle just to start, so like I said I’m viewing this as an opportunity.
Before I go further, I want to address how lucky I am that things worked out as they did. This privilege is allowing me to switch gears and focus while many out there are just figuring out how to survive and pay their bills. I want anyone who is struggling to know that I am with you and will continue to fight to make things better! You are needed, special, and loved.
Back to the content! I’m switching many focuses so I will be finishing my degree because I’m tired of being in school 🤣
As for the blog, I’m gonna switch things up a little bit. Firstly, I’m gonna be posting so much more! I’m gonna be giving out recipes and tips for integrating cannabis into your day to day life! This site will also become a place to learn about Multigenerational and Sustainable Living!
Be prepared for tips on making edibles, topicals, or other cannabis items. Be ready to learn about living with a ton of people in one house, and cheap and easy DIYs for your house! As always I’m in a state of nervous excited energy, be ready for all the posts!
The 2019 Colorado Cannabis Cup was absolutely amazing and turned out better than I had hoped!
We received 1st Place for our CBD Vape, 1st Place for our Bath Bombs, and 2nd Place for our CBD Edibles!
I am so honored that all of our hard work was recognized on such a large scale! This is also a major personal milestone. I always have a fear of not “living up to my potential,” especially when I decided to take an unorthodox path to my career. Hearing Coda getting announced for our CBD Vape was just a moment of complete shock and happiness.
At that moment, all the struggles and uncertainty became worth it. It validated my decision to go against the flow and forge a new path.
I am so proud of all of my coworkers! We have all worked hard and pushed ourselves to make things perfect.
To those who might be reading this, it pays off to follow your dreams. It takes time, perseverance, and commitment but your dreams will come true if you can hold on long enough!
