I think the 20 is a 'play' on 4.20 since it was #4 on the list. I have been told that you can make it with leaves so you don't waste your buds, but how much to use, I don't know. My friend that was telling me about it is Vegan so she has maked coconut oil instead of butter. I'll ask her about it again to see if I can get specifics.

Yep..it was just a being silly thing to crack a little joke about 420

The amount is listed....1 pound of butter to 1 oz. of herb, 1/2 to half if you choose. We used leaf matter and some fresh herbs. Pretty easy to make...just time consuming! And of course the amount of THC depends on the type of herb..use swill and you'll have mediocre budder, use high quality and your budder will be goooood! :

Rabbit posted a recipe to use coconut oil and vegan ganja fudge...ahhh...here it is...


Quote:
when I make coconut oil I use a crock pot. You can also use the stovetop. Get the oil/butter warm enough to be liquid but do not boil. Add desired amount of medicine & let simmer for a few hours. I will sometimes let the crock pot stay on warm overnight. When butter is green & done strain it through cheese cloth & put in the fridge for several hours until solid...or cook with it right away if you want.

When I make butter I also ad a few cups of water into the pan/crock pot to give more volume. Do not be concerned about losing potency in your oil. THC only bonds to fat, it is not water soluble. After placing in the fridge the butter will rise to the top & harden. The water & extra plant matter that was missed in straining will settle to the bottom & you can dispose of it however you like. (feed your plants with it )


Quote:
I thought I posted that recipe...shows where my mind is as, or rather were it's not. I'll find it & post it soon. We just made vegan ganja fudge this week too. here's the recipe for that
1/2 c ganja oil
1 cup chocolate chips
1/8 cup coconut flour (for fiber)
1/2 c coconut milk (thick part)
1/8 c sugar
melt the oil, sugar, chocolate, & coconut milk together & stir in flour. Pour on greased foil inside a baking dish & refrigerate.

We made brownies...let's just say they were so good it was magically delicious!

Hey everyone!

DH had to set back his MJ license appointment to this Friday instead of last, since we were at the Rainbow Gathering. It was absolutely amazing... drums, love, ganja, hugs, children, laughter, bonfires, and of course, beautiful rainbows.

Also, we were gifted a big ol' tub of butter, I can't wait to try out some recipes, DH got me "The Cannabis Cookbook" for Christmas and I still have yet to try any out. I must say though, the butter smells pretty bad. Looks awesome and green, but I was totally expecting it to smell awesome. Anyone else have this problem lol?

How was everyones 4th?

I have heard it can go bitter if it is left out too long or gets old. I was told to freeze it for longer storage or keep in the fridge and use it up sooner rather than later. But..I will say it smells pretty odd. And I tasted my fingers after baking and gag!!! Cookies, brownies, fudge, whathaveyou all taste much better than budder all alone!

Congratulations!! : I know many people say that MJ can actually hurt your chances of conceiving and lower your chances, but I think it's the opposite, at least for most people.

I'm in the TWW myself, and at this point, about 90% sure I'm pregnant. If I am, I think it was definitely partly due to MJ healing my body...my cycles have even been more regular (and shorter, and easier), since I started smoking more frequently.

Congrats again!

Congrats!!! That is wonderful! :

So, what does one pay for an edible treat on the left coast? I have purchased some in Vancouver before Blunt Bros. (may it rest in peace) went down in flames, but that was years and years ago.

That's awesome, congratulations!

We're making some "diggity dank river bars" as we've named them... cookie/brownie bars. This time we're using green butter to live up the the name hehe, but I still think it smells bad. :

Tomorrow morning we are headed to Denver for Dylans appointment, then to the zoo and possibly water world. Wish us a safe weekend, I hope you all have a great one! Stay green mamas.

Sounds like a really good deal to me! From what I know of edibles in NYC, anyway. I bet that's soooo yummy!


So I finally watched Pineapple Express!! : Man, so glad I did!

heeyy helloo mummies,

just new to this forum...not too sure whether i should start new threat or not...but anyone of you opinions on co sleeping and cannabis use?

hubby has chronic bowel disease..using MJ to relieve symptoms but we have
8 month old little darling baby...i am cosleeping with her when hubby on nightshifts...but love to have us all in one big bed together when hes not working aswell....

but just a little worried about perhaps THC or other things in cannabis
no good for cosleeping relating to SIDS perhaps....or would that just be
tobacco smoke?

any of you any opinions on this?:

cheeerrs,

cheeerrs,
you're obviously going to have to use your own best judgment. just bear in mind, 8 months is a lot different from 8 weeks. that is to say, i became a lot less cautious about, say, having a couple drinks and co-sleeping, or taking benadryl and co-sleeping, when DD was an older baby/toddler.

you can always sleep with the baby between you and the wall/siderail, rather than between you.

and welcome to MDC! :

So excited! My friend is letting me borrow her vaporizer. The only problem is that she wasn't able to show us how to use it (little kids around) & I can't figure it out. I guess I need to do soem online research

If you have watched super high me you would know that it is exactly the opposite. MJ actually makes you fertile but I didn't need superhigh me to tell me that!

Hiya Mamas! Sorry I don't post a whole lot but I am not here very much anymore(and I will leave it at that to avoid the UA violation and want to be able to communicate with you all-btw, if you want to friend me on facebook, pm me and I will send you my account info)

So to touch on a couple of things-I was smoking whilst ttc with both kids, and I had zero problems conceiving either of them. I smoked a lot in the beginning with Lea before I knew I was preggo, then I stopped(because I was believing propoganda...sad) and Lea is super smart, healthy and happy albeit a tad rambunctious and I never got to smoke while breastfeeding because I had problems-I should have smoked, I might have had less problems...and with Ethan, I vaped thru my whole pregnancy(MJ was one of the only things that helped with my hyperemisis) and smoke almost daily now and he is still breastfeeding(and I make more milk than he can handle-someone else has to "help" sometimes..lol) and he is a healthy, rotund little bundle of smartness-I think he actually will surpass his sister in intelligence and she is way ahead of "the curve". And my sister who never partook had a son who is sickly and almost classified as "behind". So that is my take on the mj and children situation. (and we co-sleep with both kids in the bed. Lea is 2.5 and Ethan is 11 months).

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE 25TH!!!!

hey girls ~ i posted a few times on the spring thread but just dropping in to say hello summer to you all!! it has been super hot down here but luckly some thunderstorms are cooling it off now. DH got a hold of some good sativa lately - it was my first experience with a primarily sativa variety and wow, what a difference! have been doing a lot of reading lately about the benefits of mj and wow, just wow - what an amazing natural gift from God. i'm still a little paranoid about my supply getting lower due to that but i think it is really DD getting older (8 months) and other stresses. we'll see.
