The procedure to make canna-butter and canna-oil are the exact same, however I choose to make my extractions utilizing entire buds, not leaves or stems due to the fact that the much better and more powerful the cannabis you utilize, the much better the end product will be. It is best to make a strong extraction and dilute it to individual tastes with plain butter or oil when you prepare a meal.
You can draw out cannabis into any cooking oil, I personally pick coconut oil for its health advantages. In addition, it has a high fat material which suggests it binds to a lot more of the cannabinoids you are attempting to consume.
The majority of my dishes recommend a serving size which contains in between 2-3 teaspoons of medicated butter or oil. If I am preparing a progressive supper I will utilize less in each of the courses so I do not overwhelm my visitors. On celebration I will provide a medicated garnish that is optional, some folks can utilize it if they want.
