Vapor Accessory Addict
I could not find a thread, do we need to start one?
And does that machine work with ABV?
Since you asked...
I've used the Magical Butter machine for about 5 years now; own the OG model and a newer version. They've made a few changes over the years and have more product accessories to offer than they did a few years back.
It's a handy tool for making butters, oils, tinctures and generally infusing any products. Sort of a heated blender on steroids lol...
Here's a little vid of my og model in action...
Yes... they are a bit loud. And I always feel like I should be listening to this when I use it...
The newest model, the MBe2, retails for $174.95 on the Magical Butter website. You can get $40 off if you use the code MBUU.
They've started offering several accessories in the last year; in addition to replacement filters, etc. I recently bought the Decarb box from them.... it will be used for the first time this weekend. It intrigued me because of the built in thermometer. Reviews have been mixed in the Facebook group... so we'll see.
And they are also now offering chocolate. Magical Butter claims that it is "specially formulated for adding herbal butters and oils." Haven't tried them myself.... would love to know if anyone here has? It's gotten some positive comments on the MBUU Facebook page.
So I'll start us off with the basics.... to make cannabutter my ratio is 1 oz. of good decarbed bud to 1 cup of butter. If using trim, I use 2 oz. If using abv, I use 3 oz. The same ratio for oil. You need to fill the machine up to the fill level line... so I usually need to double the amount if making butter or oil for edibles.
If I'm making topicals I use trim so I'll use the 2 oz., but I'll fill the machine to the fill line with a combination of olive oil and coconut oil. You don't need as much herb for topicals imo, nor do you need to decarb it first. I've done it both ways and really can't tell the difference.
And don't throw away that sludge you're left with after straining! There are a myriad of uses for it!
