**** the oil from this process was fairly weak. If you have been ingesting Cannabis or oil made with it for a while, you may want to increase the amount of product used. If you are a brand new user or are planning on feeding this to your pet, this recipe is a safe place to start.
Infusing Cannabis into a fat is a surprisingly straight forward process. It involves two distinct steps that rely on strict heat control and timing. There are a bazillion different methods and for small batches I've come up with this one. Mainly, you need to set aside about 4 hours of your time and voila ... you just made your own medicine.

Cannabinoids bind to any fat, I prefer coconut oil. I made some oil a few nights ago in my small apartment. It yielded me about half a cup of medicine that I take sublingually (under the tongue).
In the meantime, melt 1/2 cup Coconut oil in a mason jar.
Simmer for 3 hours being careful that water doesn't boil dry underneath (kept at #5 on my stove-top burner.) Use a thermometer and ensure that the oil doesn't go above 220F. The double boiler is a control measure as it's difficult to get the oil above 210F or so. At this point, the Cannabinoids need more time than heat to leach out into the fat.

Believe it or not, the 1 gram cannabutter recipe is real and it works! So, a few weeks back I got my hands on some pretty potent Lemon OG Kush- 2 grams of flower to be exact. Rolling one gram up into a nice joint, I sat leisurely and well-medicated in my kitchen thinking, "Maybe I can make cannabutter with this 1 gram that I have".
Me being the need-to-know-it-all that I am, I made sure to do some research before cheffing up this marvelous 1 gram cannabutter batch. Unsurprisingly, nothing conclusive came up for my results. Matter of fact, most people denounced that a 1 gram cannabutter recipe even exists.
One of the great things about Marijuana that it has endless ways to consume it, and people are getting innovative in this department. Smoking it is just the old fashion way. When it comes to edibles, it can get VERY creative and experts have came up with tons of ideas.
When thinking about weed edibles, sweeteners like corn syrup are usually overlooked. The great things about infused corn THC syrup are its ease of preparation and the many different applications. THC Infused corn syrup is a great starting point for many sweet-treats, including the increasingly popular hard candy route for those looking to ingest their cannabis in more a stealthy manner.
