The LEVO oil infuser is a new product that’s elegant, quiet, and lets you infuse cannabis or other herbs into any vegetable oil or melted butter (and even alcohol if you set the temperature appropriately) for culinary purposes.

How To Make and Use Cannabis-Infused Butter and Oil

You can buy cannabutter (cannabis cooked into butter) or oils infused with cannabis at a dispensary. Or you can make your own. These edibles can have a “greenish” or slightly bitter taste due to the chlorophyll and terpenes present in the plant matter (this can be almost completely removed by water curing). How To Decarb […]

Magical Butter Machine MB2 Product Review

What would you say to a microprocessor-controlled, high quality appliance that claimed it could make top quality cannabis-infused butter, edible oil, and tincture in a fraction of the time of normal methods?

I was looking for the “Holy Grail” of marijuana-infused drinks…something that was easy to make in just one step (no decarboxylating allowed), that would work efficiently enough to be cost-effective, and wouldn’t smell up the kitchen. Something like firecrackers, except for liquid refreshments. I think I got it. For food to work well with cannabis, […]

The Great Cannabis Oil Experiment

It’s one of those questions that’s been disputed for years in cannabis circles: what’s the best temperature to use? Whether the subject in question is decarboxylating, making firecrackers, cannabis oil, or glycerin tincture, everyone seems to have a different opinion. Well, I have lots of opinions myself, but I prefer facts. So I decided to […]

Cat and Box

This Mysterious Package Arrived on 4/20

This cat doesn’t know it, but he might be sitting next to the most important advance in cannabis processing since the discovery of decarboxylation. Yes, I’m teasing you. But I’m teasing myself too, because it really did show up weeks ago, and it’s driven me nuts because I’ve been too busy writing (yes, that book […]
