Default Cooking with fats vs sugars and glycerin

I have a ton of old keif and hash that I need to dispose of so I figure I'll spend the day in the kitchen making a nice edible.

Been doing a little reading and I learned (I think) something I didn't know.

Basically, the edibles come in 2 forms, fat based and sugar based.

The fat based edibles are designed to be chewed and eaten and the fats are absorbed into your blood via your digestive system.

The sugar and glycerin based edibles are designed to be sublingual and the sugars are absorbed by your saliva.

Also, stated was that sublingual method effects you almost immediately and almost always within the first hour, whereas fat based edibles are absorbed over several hours with the peak being as much as 3 or 4 hours away.

Also fat based is said to last much longer. 6 to 8 hours as compared to 2 or 3 hours of sublingual.

I have read this stuff at more than one site and I am wondering if the peeps here agree or have comment.

I was planning to make butter and go from there. However, all my friends want gummy bears so I might go with a glycerin based.

I am going to gather all my scrap and see what I have. I'll be back.

Well, I emptied a bunch of jars. Came up with about 6 grams of decent sift, about 8 grams of unknown hash (motor and pestle used to fine grind)and about 2 ounces of rosin chips. I have found the rosin chips are great for cooking. Maybe because the rosin is all on the top of the chip already from being pressed. And, I only press my stuff once so there's plenty of rosin left.

I also found a couple jars of what I remember to be Everclear extract. Having a little trouble getting it out of the tiny jars. I think I got most of it. Looks like about a gram.

It's all in the over decarbing....

Peanut butter is an awesome mix. Great oils and the taste overwhelms the pot taste. I do remember reading something about using organic PB since the jif and skippy types use a type of oil that doesn't mix well with pot. Probably hydrogenated oil.

Man, my house stinks. Between decarbing and 8 hours in the crock pot, the smell is almost overwhelming.

Kitchen is clean. Butter is in the fridge hardening. I used a cup of butter (2 sticks) with all the hash and sift. Brownies in the oven tomorrow.

Wow, these brownies turned out great. I ate a couple the other day and got a great buzz. Very rare for me. I gave some to friends with warning. LOL

I gave 2 brownies to a friend tonight at our gig and told him to eat less than half of one to start. He's an old stoner so he gobbled a whole one down in one bite. LOL Later on I saw him on the patio sitting in a chair. He looked a little spacey but, OK. I asked him if he got off and he just giggled and said, "I can't get out of this chair". LMAO I asked him, "Are you OK?". He said, "Yeah, I'm fine, I just can't move my legs". LMAO

My singer and lead guitar player ate some Sunday at practice and he said he was up all night. He said, "I learned my lesson last time on your Rice Krispie treats so I was ready". LOL

We played until almost 1 AM so I'll be beat tomorrow. Brownies and coffee are on the menu for breakfast.

Gotta luv edibles when they come out just right.

'night

Yum!

I am so looking forward to having a lot of trim and popcorn bud to make goodies. The older I get, the more I am getting into edibles, vapes, and tinctures.

Tell me about using the pucks you have pressed. How much is left in them and how exactly do you use them for cooking? I'm going to try and find several people to go in on a decent quality rosin press with me. I think that is how I want to make my concentrates. It scares me a lot to work with flammable stuff (I am just rather klutzy) and I like the idea of no poisonous solvents being used, like butane, naptha, iso.

I made some gummy bears a while ago. I used RSO and they taste a bit icky, but put me to sleep as they are meant to do. Next time I think I will use shatter/rosin. And I'm thinking of making cinnamon bears using cinnamon oil and Fireball instead of everclear.

Brownies look great! I will be joining you in spirit.

Cinnamon would definitely help with the taste.

HG, check out the picture in the second post. You can see all the chips sitting there on the foil. Looks like about 20 or 30 of them.

I'll see if I can get a close-up pic of one but after you press it, some of the rosin stays right on the surface. You can see it all gathered there. Most people press their stuff twice. I only press once because the second press always tastes a little burnt to me. Since taste is a big factor for me, I don't press twice. That leaves some rosin right at the surface of the chip.

I decarb them as usual and then toss them in the crock pot with the butter and water.

This way, nothing good goes into the dumpster.
