  • I love it, more stuff, teach us plz.

  • Decarbing helps take away that green color too. but after testing my butter multiple times. There is not too much of a difference. I use a magic butter machine now. way easier and more potent

  • I put my cannabis in cheesecloth before I place it in the butter.
    I also use my best buds, none of this nasty, green trim I see a lot of people using.
    Cannabutter should always be yellow, not green.
    Great job, thanks!

  • You're beautiful. Look after yourself…

  • Awesomeness!

  • You remind me of my weed. Straight ?.

  • I would suggest a double boiler as to not get the temperature too high.

  • What happens if you don't decarb the weed first and just use plain dried bud? Will it be weak?

  • Keira is cool

  • I want more Keira !, she seems like a very special young woman and I would like to know more about her.

  • I'm a little surprised you didn't include the information not to let the butter exceed 220 degrees F. Otherwise you just end up with green icky tasting butter…

  • I have seen people infuse their butter for way longer ! Is there a benefit ?

  • I'd like too eat you right up you delectable edible!
