Show Notes:   Welcome to 2021, this is Ep. 136. I hope Christmas and New Years went well for everyone.  We’ve been through a lot this crazy year.  We saw the conversation about cannabis go from “why do we need it”l to essential in an instant. I want to welcome all the new home growers who started growing this crazy year. Virtual Events  Made butter with the Magical butter Machine, and didn’t make a video, small kitchen and too many cooks.  I’ve been putting butter in almost everything I eat or drink lately.  Here’s what I used.

  • 21oz of clarified butter (3 tubs of 7oz each)
  • 1 Tbsp of  Lecithin per cup of butter
  • 7.3g homegrown trim, maybe 15% THC hard to tell and 3.7g of Maui Wowie 19% THC  For a total of 11g of cannabis at about 16% THC and that’s what I based my math on.
  • Decarboxylated it at 250 degrees F for 25min.  I cover my baking sheet with foil, some people do this uncovered.
  • Put butter, Lecithin and flower in the Magical butter Machine and set for 2hrs at 165 degrees F setting.

Now for the math:  The totals are rounded up.  

  • 1g = 1000mg
  • 11g = 11,000mg
  • 11,000 x 16% (THC) = 1,760mg of THC
  • 1,760 divided by 21oz (butter) = 84mg THC per oz of butter or 18mg THC per tsp
  • Each 7oz tub of butter has 586mg THC more or less.

Strain of the Week:  Strawberry Banana aka Strawnana – Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum, This flower had a nice sweet fruity flavor and aroma, I love a fruity bud.  It came in at 22% THC, it was an indica leaning but not too bad.  It was a nice level headspace, didn’t rob my motivation the way some indicas in the 20’s% can.  If I was working it was easy to stay on task, I didn’t get distracted or lose my train of thought.  I did find it too mellow to hang out with friends, if I smoked more than 1 joint at a time it gave me couchlock.   Autumn Brands  

    From Leafly on Phenotype Two things influence the structural formation of any given cannabis plant: genetics and environment. The plant’s genetic makeup, also called a genotype, acts as a blueprint for growth: it allows a spectrum of physical possibilities, but it is up to the environment to induce these characteristics. The physical expression of a genotype is referred to as a phenotype, which is simply defined as the traits that the environment pulls out from the plant’s genetic code

Report from the cannabis front line:

Voters in Arizona (nov 30, 2020), Montana (Jan 1, 2021), New Jersey (Jan 1, 2021) and South Dakota (July 1, 2021) approved measures legalizing recreational marijuana.

Oregon decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of street drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.  I couldn’t find when that goes or went in affect.
