My foaf made some majoon the other day, loosely following the recipe
in Adam Gottlieb's _Cooking with Cannabis_. But foaf's friends had
quite a healthy serving of it, with no noticeable effects. Can anyone
give us advice on how to rescue the THC he wasted?

Here's what foaf did:

Toasted about 1/2 oz. of pretty good shake. (Gottlieb suggests a 1/4
oz. of buds.)

Chopped up about a cup of fresh dates, finely.

Ground up the grass into a fine powder in an electric coffee grinder.
(Gottlieb says to "pulverize it" into the fruit.)

Put the dates and grass into a pan, with 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup
of currants. Mixed it all up while it simmered. Added the spices
(coriander, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon).

Added 2 tablespoons of butter, let it melt and mixed it in. Simmered
it on low heat for another 5 minutes.

That's it. The stuff tastes really great --- if a little weird and
nasty-looking.

But no buzz at all from it --- So what went wrong? Foaf was very
careful not to let it burn or get to hot. . .  So he's at a loss.

Is there anything we can do at this point to activate the grass?
Should he put in more butter? Serve bigger servings?
