    So today we are going to be making magic butter in MB2 magical butter machine. I got this device a few months ago and have not had a lot of success with my results so far. So I have been researching everything i can to figure out what I can do to be able to enjoy edibles. :)

    When I first got started i was using about 14grams or so total in the MB2 with 2 cups of coconut oil. I wasn't feelin it. So we jumped up to 1oz per run. again, I was getting little to no effect, maybe a mild body feeling, MAYBE. I am cooking brownies at 325 with 1/2 cup of oil.. So I needed to know the dosage I was getting per brownie. this is what i came up with.... I figure 2cups of oil + 32g herb = 1gram per table spoon of oil. My recipe call for 1/2 cup oil, so i figure that is about 8 servings per pan with 1 gram per serving. which would be about right. I smoke 1gram to half gram per session 3+ times a day.

    Well now, We are going to keep experimenting. I have clarified butter, coconut oil, and olive oil. I am going to be making magical oil out of all of these and then reporting back!

    To each 2 cup batch of oil, I will be adding 4 tablespoons of soy lecithin and 32+ grams of Apollo 13 that is properly dried and cured.

    One of the tips I have is to load the MB2 up with your oil, then add your material. if you are like me, this thing is loaded above the oil line with dense buds. Settle the lid down on there and press the cleaning cycle button. wait for it to go around 2 or 3 times, press the cleaning cycle button again to pause it remove the lid enough to peak inside. everything should be pulverized and below the surface now!

    sounds like you are on the road to a good butter/oil. Only suggestion I have is decarb your weed first. That will have a huge impact on how effective your butter is.

    I'll be following your magic butter adventure. Would like to learn as much as possible so i can make up a couple good batches in about another 2 months or so after harvest.

    Question on decarb. Can you naturally decarb by an extra 12-24 hour dark period before the chop?

    I might do my own decarb cycle in the oven if i can't get any great results. The MB2 has a carb cycle built in to it though, so it *shouln't* need to be done separatly. .

    No decarbing take's weeks/months and or heat.

    Interesting Endpro. I have never seen this machine. What is the decarb cycle? Does it do a decarb before you add your weed?

    for Thecannacove: to decarb...place ground up weed in oven safe dish and cover tightly with foil. Place in cold oven and set temp to 225f and timer for 20 mins (30 if using fresh trim or bud). Let cool completely then continue with your butter.

    Isn't decarbing to simply "Cook" out the sugars and starches? I ask because if you chop right after a long dark cycle, the plant uses up all it's glucose storage and starches during dark period. So at least it could minimize need for decarb. (i'm not saying do away with the need to, just make it so there is much much less to decarb) kinda like squeezing out as much air from a bag as possible before vac-packing. Hopefully that analogy makes sense, lol.

    Of course that all hinges on decarb meaning what I ASSume it means :D

    lol Cannacove :) this explains it pretty well. Not my words lol, but I can't remember the website to give credit :O

    if you make a cookie with non decarbed butter and one with decarbed butter, you will definitely notice the difference in potency and effect.


    Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide (CO[SUB]2[/SUB]). This means a chemical reaction takes place in which carboxylic acids loose a carbon atom from a carbon chain. This process converts THCA to THC, the much loved compound with many medicinal and psychoactive effects. When the cannabis drys, it very very slowly begins to decarboxylate and converts THCA to THC.

    So here is what the oil looks like after i strained it etc.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the brownies we made .. added 2 TBSP of soy lecithin to the mix as well when I blended everything.

    Results: were pretty good. Onset was about 30-45 mins, but a def buzz was going on for hours. I got to get used to the fact it's not like actually smoking.

    After you add the oil and weed and then push the buttons to start it, yes it does a decarb cycle and has thermometer to regulate the temps

    you can make most any vinaigrette with about 1/2 cup of oil. That will give you quite a few servings. Whatever acid you use (lemon juice, vinegar, etc) got 3 to 1 oil to acid, then add your seasonings.

    Thank you sir, they are tasty! and the most potent one's i have made to date!

    lol...I'm a ma'am ;)

    I also have the MB2 maker and I'm very happy with it, have you tried the other settings as well? it has built it settings to make the tincture which i have not yet tried. It is a 4 hour tincture cycle and the recipe included with the maker says to use glycerin.

    just what i was looking for. i asked the company about the fill lines as i wanted to stuff the machine. the cleaning cycle should fix any problems.

    thanks. :)

    Love my MB 2 . I use it to create the base for my weed mead. It's set it and forget it. Great little machine.

    endpro (and others): I'm curious what is the temp / duration you use for oil (coconut).
    What (if any) experiments did you do with other temps / duration and how have you tested the results?
