Brownies - Canna Butter or Canna Oil?

Hello
When making brownies, the recipe calls for oil. Is there a preference as to using canna butter vs canna oil?

Also, recipe calls for 1/3 cup of oil per batch. Doesn’t sound like a lot to give a good buzz in a small brownie?

Pretty new to edibles.

We decarb 1/2 ounce weed in a cup of coconut oil and it makes pretty strong edibles.
The amount of oil is not the determining factor but how much cannabis you add to the oil.

Just my opinion here,
I have made butter and oil (coconut) both.
Butter makes me gag. Somthing about the butter mixed with weed smell. In brownies I am sure it would be fine, but if used where you can taste and smell it more I am put off by the aroma.

We used to make cannabutter in the crockpot but once I got the Source Turbo I’ve never looked back. Like you I’m on the lookout for that ‘weedy’ taste which is kinda funky. Now our cookies taste just like any other good Tollhouse recipe.

I don’t think it makes any difference to your brownies.

Thanks
I have a Levo 2 that is supposed to arrive Wednesday. Anxious to try some canna oil and make a batch of brownies and canna capsules.

I have done it in the crockpot and stovetop before. The Levo and others sounds like it’s much easier and less mess.

Now I just need my latest grow to mature to harvest/dry and cure.

I prefer using coconut oil for brownies, and I try to stick with the Pillsbury brand brownie mixes. Thiers calls for 2/3 of a cup of oil as opposed to 1/2 cup for Betty Crocker and the other big brands I’ve looked at. I figure the extra oil is a good thing.
I have used butter in the past, and they came out fine, but not as good as with oil.
Another note, if you use coconut oil, make sure your eggs are room temperature before mixing. If the eggs are cold, the coconut oil starts to really thicken up making it very difficult to keep mixing, lol.

I like infused olive or coconut oil for my baking versus butter. Do a lot of it. Also infused coconut makes great gummies.

I use the instapot to make oil and butter for brownies and cookies.

I put an ounce into two cups. That way I can share with the kids.
