    so i got my magical butter mac hine on monday, and about an hour and a half later, i had this.
    if you are into eating your buds or making oils and tinctures with or without dope, this is a pretty cool machine.


    2.5 oz of some very nice bud (i rate it a 7.5, a casual smoker friend says it's a 9). not my best, but nice. the bud was dried down to 48% humidity from it's usual 60 or so.

    16 oz of coconut oil (64% saturated fat (fat is the key) + 2 tablespoons of soy lecithin






    this is inside of the magical butter mac hine, oil and lecithin added.




    medicine added




    after an hour, i got this





    it smells nice too



    i'm not sure why it's so dark at first but it mellows out into this











    i have 15 ml in liquid form (for some sublingual experimentation) and about 15 oz of oil but i need to weigh it up.
    strength wise, it adds up to 2.6 grams of pot per ounce of oil.

    i have a bunch of 00 capsules and i'll be filling them once i figure out if this is strong enough or if i want to add another 1/2 ounce to it.
    my goal is to take 2 to 3 capsules to get to the sweet spot.

    i put 1/2 of a dropper full under my tongue this morning just to test the waters. it didn't get me very high but i didn't think it would.
    the plan is to slowly work my way up to the right dosage. too much at once is not a good thing. it will ruin your evening. after my nap today, i'll take a whole dropper full and see what's what.

    determining dosage is going to be a bitch as i'll have to eat some when i'm not high, and then wait 3 hours to see what it does. some of you idiots would probably just do a couple spoonfulls. i'm older and wiser...wiserer? most wisest? :dontknow:


    speaking of taking too much, in the course of getting this all done, i was supposed to wear gloves. i spaced out on that of course, and i was cleaning up and transferring the oil. next thing i knew, i had oil all over my hands. i freaked a bit and washed it off and used purel 3 or 4 times. then i worried for 2 hours about getting way too high. it was ok though. they call eating too much "greening out" these days. :jj:

    well that's my story and i'm sticking too it.

    i'm getting a little tired of everybody calling it cannabis! they say that the word marijuana has a bad image, so they think calling it cannabis, like a bunch of hipster douchebags, is better.

    i hope i like this oil. if not, the mac hine will go into the closet where good ideas with bad outcomes go to die.

    that would be interesting. there are some rock stars in the "cannabis" community.



    my plan is just to use some sublingualy and the rest will be taken in capsules like medicine, which according to my state, it is. :leaf:

    once i figure out the dosage, i might make some cookies. we shall see.

    An hour?!? That's F'N sweet!!! :lo5:

    I did it last week in my slow cooker, it took 8. That's a helluva time saver. :thumbup2: Even if the capsules don't have the desired effect, that mofo is worth keeping out for edibles alone.

    I've been tossing a teaspoon in my post-work smoothie, it's nice. About a half hour later I'm in the zone.
