Just got me an ardent nova lift decarboxylater and a Magical butter Machine.

I am not affiliated in any way to either of these companies.

I plan on making gummies, infused oils, topicals, foods and all kinds of other stuff.

So far I have decarbed 38 grams of weed and infused that into 500 ml of Olive oil. I have also decarbed a 1/2 oz into 1 pound of butter. I will be making Cookies and more brownies tomorrow.

I have been eating the olive oil everyday for the last week and made brownies today. The brownies and oil are very potent. I cannot say enough good things about both of these products and how well they work together to give you consistent repeatable results.

The Decarboxylater takes about an hour and a half per batch. The most I could fit into the decarboxylator without packing it in was 24 grams. How much you can fit at one time will depend on bud size/density.

Oh man, im glad somebody else is having some luck with this. I bought my MB machine a while back and have only used it a few times. Been meaning to grab the nova/ardent decarb machine just for simplicity.

Do you use the timing on the MB machine for your oil (i believe it's default 2 hours) or do you use the longer setting for max efficiency?

Trying to nail down an easy, foolproof way for myself (and coconut oil)

180 degrees ,2hrs are my settings, I run each pound butter separately adding old to new for each cycle,always decarb of course to activate the thc

hope this helps

oh and if your on FB they have MBM groups there for sharing recipes some even incorporate the sludge(used plant matter) since it still contains THC, into there foods and lotions

Not sure if I understand what you mean by this? Would you figure there's any benefit to running the cycle longer at say, 4 hours, or 8?
I tried just using 3lbs after clarifying the butter( remove fat) and ground the 100 grams or so and just ran the regular 2hr cycle (fits right to the line) but found it lacked alot of the effects way more cerebral when its incorporated gradually..IMO..

but 6hrs total after decarb and clarification
