Bad Tasting Edibles? Most people haven’t had the opportunity to try delicious edibles because unfortunately, many people make edibles that are green, taste gross, and have a gritty texture. I have found the following technique, which involves washing your cannabutter with water, to be the easiest way to make your bad tasting edibles taste amazing. You should use this technique every time you make cannabutter or oil for the best quality edibles every time.
Because THC isn’t soluble in water, you don’t have to worry about losing your edible’s potency if you maintain the right temperature. But don’t add water to the butter until after you strain out the weed. Otherwise you will restrict the THC absorption process and cause more chlorophyll, salts, and other inert properties to be absorbed into the butter.
In order to wash your cannabutter, you kinda sorta need cannabutter. If you don’t have any, check out our tutorial: How To Make Extremely Potent Cannabutter.
Step 1: Melt Your Cannabutter
Melt your cannabutter in a pot on the oven making sure not to exceed 250 degrees, the vaporization point of THC. If it starts boiling, itâ’s too hot.
Step 2: Add Water
Add an equal portion of water to the cannabutter and stir for at least 30 seconds to get the garbage material out it.
Step 3: Cool
Cool the cannabutter in the refrigerator until the water has separated from the butter and the butter is solid. Donât try to rush this by putting it in the freezer. If you do, it will change the consistency and ruin the butter.
Step 4: Drain
After the butter has cooled completely it will be floating on top of the water. Drain the garbage water and you’ll be left with a cleaner better tasting butter than you started with.
No More Bad Tasting Edibles
For even better results, repeat steps 1 – 4 until you’ve reached your desired butter. But don’t do too many wash cycles because you may end up deteriorating the butter and losing potency from continually heating it up.
