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? 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. 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.
