I recommend straining. The leftovers are useless plus you don't need the little bits and pieces in your goodies

I know someone who uses olive oil because it has less cholesterol.

He says not to overheat it.

Oil better than butter. No water and no separating, as mentioned.

Straining very important. There is no thc left on the leaves, so there is no high left, and no sense leaving it in. Straining also removes the useless plant matter, which really helps diminish that kind of yukky taste.

Here's a link so you can do some harmless research before trying it.

melt the butter on a very low heat thc evaporates at a low temp so dont like boil it, it will ruin it.
after you have made the butter, the butter is green and the leftover bud is usually browner, or stale looking, there are no active ingredients left in the plant material. i know as a pot smoker it may be hard to throw away that much "poy" but it really is just plant material and will not git you any higher if you leave it in, it will just make your food taste nasty. good luck.

first grind up the herb with a food processor. sand like quality is the best.remove all stems or seeds unless of course you are using leaf or shake. melt 7 grams at a time with one stick or 8 0z of butter. use a double broiler or slow cooker. i let mine stand for 15 hours in low temp cooking. then when its all done i add it to a recipe of what ever you want. choclate fudge brownies,sugar cookies, choclate chip cookies. panut butter bars. the list is endless. if you cant decide what to make pour the butter onto a pyrex pan of some type so you may use it at a later time. pour it carefuly while it is hot. once it cools you will see the difference of the gia and the butter. enjoy

another nice thing about using an oil is that you can keep it in a little stealth vial and hit on it easily without attracting any attention. i've even done that walking into a meeting @ a d.a.'s office once... ;-}

I use a double boil method and never had any complaints over my treats. Just set up the double boil, add the btuter and weed to the top thing. Let it simmer for HOURS, stirring occasionaly. I feel the longer it simmers, the more THC comes out. THen I just use a simple wire mesh strainer, and squeeze all the butter outta the trees. I also take the 'leftover' weed and put it in a cotaine to stick in the fridge. Typically, the remaining butter will seperate, so thers a lil extra there....

I use the same method to make cannaoil as well, since some baked goods require oil and some require butter. Definatly use the double boiler to avoid burning anything.
