Crazy Easy Infused Butter

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?

Life Updates and News!

Let’s just get into things

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!

LEGALIZE! and Expunge

HI FRIENDS!

Today’s post, I will be focusing on an article by Tom Angell for Forbes. A quick summary is that this article focuses on Congress’ plan to vote on Legalizing Cannabis Federally! I am (obviously) a huge proponent on legalizing, however this official vote does bring insight to the divides and hidden intricacies of legalization. Let’s get into the nitty gritty friends!!

Firstly, the legislation is called the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act. This would be a huge win for the cannabis industry and is the only way we should progress as cannabis becomes less of a taboo. The MORE Act would not only remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) but would also designate money to be used to benefit those affected by the “War on Drugs.”

If this passes, this would be the end of cannabis prohibition and the beginning of a whole new world!

That may seem a tad over-dramatic, but that’s how I roll. Seriously though this would really begin a whole new type of cannabis industry. It would allow states to decide how to regulate. It would affect how businesses work, it may allow for cross-state transportation; meaning my company in Colorado could ship products into New Mexican dispensaries and vice versa. Who knows, maybe with the entire country smoking or eating weed then we can all get along!

A lady can dream. Yes I am high whilst writing this, I mean its a cannabis blog, so now lets get back to the point at hand!

Legalization alone is not enough, we must also be mindful of the thousands of people who are incarcerated. The war on drugs, targeted black and hispanic people and are the ones who are sitting in jail due to possession. They also have a very difficult time to find jobs after jail, which leads to a never ending cycle. When cannabis becomes federally legal, it wouldn’t make sense to continue to incarcerate them and would not be fair for them to have a record for using something that is now legal, and shouldn’t have been illegal.

Yes you heard me right, cannabis shouldn’t have ever been illegal. This federal legalization is long overdue, and it is important that we expunge the record of all cannabis convictions as a result. Legalization and Expungement are like peanut butter and jelly or mac and cheese. Sure you could have one without the other, but it only combined that you experience a perfect harmony.

So there we have it, I also included sources if you want to read for yourself.

Do you guys want to more learn about the political side of cannabis, the daily lifestyle, or how to’s? Or all of the above! Let me know!
