If you’ve stunk up your house getting your flower ready for edibles, you’ve surely thought there has to be a better way.

father-in-law would get a contact high, I was excited when I learned about the
Ardent FX. I bought the device during Ardent’s Black Friday Sale, so I got the
handy silicone sleeve, which I find super convenient when infusing MCT oil.
While I’ve read some reviews on social media that complain
that they’re getting a strong smell from the Ardent, that’s not my experience.
We recently moved back into our condo, and I was paranoid that the neighbours
could smell what I was up to, but my husband reassured me that he didn’t smell
I haven’t tried making butter yet, but I’m excited to infuse
the butter in the Ardent FX after trying the stovetop method!
