HIGH TIMES edibles editor Elise McDonough investigated which fats best absorb THC in her Fat City experiment (in the July issue of HT).
Since cooking with cannabis always comes down to infusing fats with THC, Elise and marijuana chef Payton Curry compared butter, olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil and bacon fat to see which was the most efficient medium for making edibles.
Each fat was infused with the same amount of pot. And, each was heated the same way. After being poured in Mason jars with 3.5 grams of cannabis, each medium was placed inside an immersion circulator, which uses water to heat the fat. This method also eliminates odors – a stealthy benefit for those living near nosy neighbors or with roommates.
After each fat was infused over a period of four hours, a sample of each was sent off for lab testing to determine which best absorbed THC.

You may remember 91-year-old weed chef Nonna Marijuana from our premiere episode of Bong Appetit. The ganja-friendly grandma got quite a bit of attention for her cannabis culinary skills, as well as her signature dishes such as Chicken Pot-cciatore.
Now you can watch Nonna catch up on your YouTube comments, and even respond to the remarks and questions of a lucky few of you. Hey, just because she’s a nonagenerian doesn’t mean that she’s clueless about the ways of the ‘net.
