Dear Stoner: I'd like to make edibles the right way but don't have the patience. Will microwaving edibles or butter kill the THC?
Dear Sarah: Making infused butter and cooking oil on the stove doesn’t take more than thirty minutes if you’re in a rush, but for generations raised on minute burritos and TV dinners, I can see how daunting that looks. There’s more than rustic reasoning behind the stovetop, though: Microwaves don’t heat liquids and solids evenly, so your infused oils and melted chocolate bars will probably burn in some areas and be undercooked in others. Still, microwaves are very much an option if you’re really short on time.
