What to start making edibles? Easiest?

I want to start making some high potency edibles. I had considered a few of the machines on the market but am not sure which one looks like the best for the money. I would like some suggestions from anyone who has experience or an idea with a good product for making edibles. Any help at all is appreciated.

The first one I ever made was a simple syrup recipe that I added to any drink I wanted. For that one you only needed a pot, some pot, and sugar, water and vegetable glycerin. Weed Lemonade

Now I use my ardent nova (expensive but easy), or a crockpot for higher volumes to make cannaoil which I make into capsules for easy travel.
Here is the crockpot one I eventually used: Crockpot

Hope you find a fun method.

I use a crock pot as well and use coconut oil as my carrier. I use the liquid coconut oil most of the time. I usually go with a recipe online and then add 1.5 the amount of recommended pot. We where using the capsules as well, then found it more effective to just use a dropper or small vials to put direct under your tung. This seems to hit you fast with a lot less product. Use good weed, and you will find it works great, use shit and it comes out about the same. Gummy bears are always a favourite and I not only use the bears for a base and make bigger ones for other friends that would need four or five

Get a magical butter machine, its just so easy to make your base canna ingredients. I use chicken roasting bags to decarb my bud it helps with the smell.

As for recipes start making some butter then make some brownies. Google canna brownies and you'll see loads of recipes, just make sure you pick one that doesn't cook too hot for too long.

You can have my magic butter machine. I think it’s a waste.
I do butter, coconut oil on the stove top.
I don’t think it’s a waste, it’s too easy to let it burn on a stove top. I’d rather be doing something else than standing around for an hour making sure the oil/butter doesn’t burn. It’s happened before and just tastes like shit.

Crockpot for the win. If you have the ability to get an extract, concentrate, or distillate I would suggest using that instead of actual weed or trim. I make qwiso that I use most of the time. If you have clean reclaim in an oil rig that works excellent for edibles too.

Butter made with plant material tastes like plant material. Butter made with an extract tastes much nicer and is almost undetectable in many recipes.

I just made a batch last week. It’s got roughly 1.5g of distillate, .5g of lemon meringue sauce and 2ish grams of reclaim dissolved into 1 stick of butter :).

I'll jump in and give my two cents worth...
We are doing edibles almost exclusively. I've made chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge, caramels, toffee, butter mints and gummy bears.

The method I have ended up with is to decarb whatever gram weight that I would like to have in 1 cup of cannabutter, say 7 or 10 or 14 grams.
I grind and place directly in a quart mason jar with the lid on, then place the mason jar on it's side directly in the oven set for 220 degrees F. I set a timer for 20 min, after that timer goes off, I shake the jar, place back on it's side and reset for another 20 min. Total of 40 min at 220 degrees F.
Note: I use an external digital thermometer to monitor oven temp, this will fluctuate between 220 and 250, if it gets above 250 I open the oven door for a few seconds to adjust it.
After the ground weed has been decarbed, I add the 1 cup of butter (I add a little more to make up for the amount absorbed into the weed) to the same mason jar. I them place that jar of weed and butter in a water bath, inside a crockpot for 4 hrs. (lid on) This will infuse your butter with the already decarbed weed. It doesn't stink up the whole house, no chance of scorching, you don't have to leave it for 24 hrs., and you don't have to babysit it.
Strain, filter, and use...

I have done this same operation with coconut oil, (solid at room temp), and it worked just as well.

Thank you very much for all the answers. I have considered several of the nicer machines, but I have a crock pot and I think I will see what I can get going on with that first! Thanks guys!
We are here to help, so don’t hesitate to ask questions.

  1. Preheat oven to 225° F / 110° C.
  2. Line an oven-safe dish (or a rimmed baking sheet) with parchment paper.
  3. Breaking up cannabis buds into smaller pieces by hand, place the material in the dish close together but not stacked on one another (the less unused space the better).
  4. When oven is pre-heated, bake for about 20 minutes to remove the moisture (depending on the freshness of the material). Watch for the plant color to get darker (a light to medium brown shade). When it is time to remove from the oven, the material should be crumbly looking.
  5. Set plant material aside and wait until it is cool enough to handle. Turn oven up to 240° F / 115° C and wait for it to preheat again.
  6. When the cannabis is cooled, lightly crumble by hand and distribute evenly over the bottom of the dish.
  7. Cover dish with aluminum foil, crimping the edges tight to seal and return to the oven. Continue baking for another 45-60 minutes for higher THC and 60-90 minutes for higher CBD.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool fully before removing the foil. Depending on the material you use, it may be fine enough and require no further processing. If not, you can place the material in a food processor or blender, pulsing the cannabis until it is coarsely ground. Be careful not to over grind the material, as you do not want a super fine powder.
  9. Place in an airtight container (glass preferred) and store in a cool, dry place.

Great info, Thank you! I've wanted to try making cannabutter but am scared of wasting the flower by scorching/burning it. I have heard of the magical butter machine but it's currently not in my budget right now to purchase. This method you have shared seems easy to follow, lots of work but very well worth it! Thank you for the cannabutter calculator as well. Finding the correct butter to cannabis ratio was another thing I wasn't sure about. THX!
