      1. […] THC-laden oil is quite easy to make. Simply add the marijuana to any vegetable oil and heat it up to extract and decarboxylate the THCA. The oil prepared through this technique can be used in any recipe that calls for vegetable oil (including salad dressings). […]

      2. […] Purchase a few high-quality marijuana seeds. Remember, you don’t need to grow a lot of plants to get a lot of When you use high-quality seeds, your plants can yield potent buds that don’t compare to the low-quality stuff you may get from a dealer. Plus, growing your own plants lets you control what goes into your plants, and also lets you create delicious edibles out of homemade marijuana butter. […]

      3. I have some good buds of quality stuff, and they hermied. Can I use those buds with the seeds left in them to make butter or oil?

        • Of course you can. You can do that; Or any other method of ingesting MMJ.

          All that happened was that you lost some potency due to the plant concentrating energy on seeds instead of trichome/THC development. Enjoy.

      4. “In the end the effects are the same but when you smoke marijuana the effects are noticeable gradually. When eating marijuana the effects take some time to be noticeable but it comes suddenly.”
        Me thinks this is a bit backwards? When I smoke the effects are immeadiate, but when I eat it’s like gradual stairs to the top of the buzz and gradual steps down again.

      5. I think I would do some research on the male plant thing because I have read and watched youtube vids where the people swear that male plants used in cooking will work and I do agree with Robert if not careful the males could ruin your crop

      6. hello, was wondering if the male plants can be used to make the butter & cream. It seems such a waste to discard them.
