APPLIANCE AND GADGETS

The Magical Butter Machine is one of the most popular on the market due to its large capacity for big-batch infusions (up to 5 cups of butter, oil, or tincture). It is durable and reliable. I've had mine for years and it has never failed me any time I make a batch of infusion... and trust me, I make A LOT!


You can purchase it directly from the website here (20% off some items and bundles for their anniversary sale going on now).


Or get it on Amazon here.







An Instant Pot is a versatile kitchen tool for many cooking needs with all its great functions - including being able to both decarb and infuse cannabis right inside!


You can get it on Amazon here.








The Keurig of infusions! A beautiful countertop device that easily decarbs AND infuses at the push of a button. It comes in two different models - the one shown here is for smaller batches and there is a Levo C for larger batches.


You can get it on Amazon here.

Or here for the Levo C big batch version.






I can't live without this device! The tCheck is a potency checker that links to your phone and gives you fast and pretty accurate results of your infusions so that you can dose properly.


You can get it on Amazon here.

Or with the expansion kit, you can also test flower and concentrates. You can get it on Amazon here.






Take all the timing and guesswork out of decarbing! Just add in your flower and at the push of a button, the Ardent technology will decarb your material to the maximum potential. And no more smelling up the house! This device keeps odor to a minimum.


Get it on Amazon here.


Another model, the Ardent FX, also decarbs AND infuses in the same device but makes very small batches. This is a good two-in-one device if you want to have a smaller appliance for storage.


Get it on Amazon here.




MUST-HAVE TOOLS


Any type of scale that measures in grams is a must-have! This will help you measure out your flower so that you can get the right flower to butter/oil/alcohol ratio for your infusions.


Any of the scales on this Amazon list here will give you an accurate reading in grams.










Straining is an important step in the infusion process! You want every last drop of that goodness that you have worked for so you want a fine mesh strainer that separates the plant material from the fat without any plant bits falling through. I highly recommend this inexpensive, reusable nut milk bag over using a cheesecloth.


Get it on Amazon here.




Butter in a stick form is super convenient because it's premeasured and you can just cut off the measurement that you need. When making infused cannabutter, why not do the same using this silicone mold! Each indentation is one tablespoon making it quick and easy for recipes and baking. It comes with a lid, doubling as storage as well!


Get it on Amazon here.






The possibilities of making your own gummies and chocolates are endless now that you know how to make infused bases. Using these silicone molds designed to reflect your creation is even better! I love this set because it comes in 3 different sizes and with droppers to make the process mess-minimal.

FAT BASES AND ADDITIVES



This Golden Monkey brand of ghee is hands-down the best I've ever tasted and the high-quality of it will make your infusions taste rich, buttery, and amazingly nutty. Ghee is butter that has been refined to remove any milk solids, leaving a full-fat that absorbs cannabis in a maximized way. Using ghee instead of butter is not required but will elevate your infusions even further.


You can get it on Amazon here.









You are already invested in maximizing your cannabis for your infusions, so don't skip out on the quality of your base fat either! Always use the highest quality butter like this Organic Valley unsalted one. It will improve the taste and maximize the potency. This is my go-to which can be found at most grocery stores and online. It is silk smooth butter that I will clarify myself if I do not have ghee on hand.


Get it on Amazon here.





MCT oil is derived from coconut but unlike coconut oil, it will still stay liquid at room temperature. It is also flavorless and may be a better option if you don't want any additional tastes other than cannabis. MCT also helps you feel full and is quickly digested and converted into energy for your brain and body, making it a convenient way to help power your day along with your plant medicine.


Get it on Amazon here.









I use this quality Whole Foods organic Mediterranean olive oil for everyday cooking and certainly for my infusions as well! It is smooth and has a light, neutral taste, and is not bitter at all to complement your cannabis.



You can get it at your nearest Whole Foods or on Amazon here.













Studies show that avocado oil infusions yields the highest THC extractions versus all the other types of oils (like olive or coconut). This means that you wil get the most cannabinoids out of your plant using avocado oil! And there is no better quality one than La Tourangelle.


You can get it on Amazon here.






I ALWAYS add lecithin to my infusions. Why? Because it helps to evenly distribute the cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) within the carrier fat. It also helps to boost the feeling of potency when it is consumed.


This is my favorite brand of the powder form which you can get on Amazon here.







STORAGE




Remember what I said about no plastic for cannabis storage?! NO plastic, ALWAYS glass. Nothing is more perfect for flower and infusion storage than these spill-proof, smell-proof mason jars. So versatile in the kitchen and comes in different sizes for your needs.


Here are the two sizes I use which you can find on Amazon here:


32 oz jars

8 oz jars







The best way to preserve your infusions is in an amber bottle that will protect it from UV rays that will degrade the cannabinoids. The little dropper bottles are perfect for precise dosing and on-the-go infusion of your drinks or food.


You can get it on Amazon here.


Or for larger quantity storage, these will work great!






Have a lot of cannabis and need to keep it as fresh as possible for as long as possible? Then these Boveda humidity packs are your weed's best friend. It is designed to maintain a certain level of moisture in your cannabis jar so that your cannabis never dries out. No matter how long I plan on having my cannabis, I will always throw a pack into the container with it.


You can get it on Amazon here.
