Top 5 Mediums to Infuse in Your Ardent MINI

We just launched our newest device, the Ardent MINI. It’s the absolute definition of small and mighty!

The MINI features the same patented technology and sleek design as our best-selling Ardent FX, but it comes in a compact and ultra-convenient size. This adorable machine is an upgrade from our beloved OG device, Ardent Nova.

The Ardent MINI is great for those who live in a small space and need to keep their counters clear. It’s also perfect for people who travel, live with roommates, or want to decarb and infuse discreetly.

You can even bake tiny treats inside your unit, so you don’t need access to an oven. Plus, it comes with a custom carrying case to bring with you wherever you go!

The Ardent MINI holds up to one ounce of flower and six ounces of oil, so you’ll have more than enough to make your favorite edibles, topicals and beyond.

Just like the Ardent FX, the Ardent MINI features settings for activating your plant material (THC, CBG, and CBD) as well as a separate Infuse setting. There are many ways to combine your herb or hemp with fats like oil, butter, and ghee, to make your infused treats even tastier and more bioavailable than ever before.

Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, fats and oils act like insulators to your flower, and can typically undergo a bit more heating before fully binding with the cannabinoids and terpenes in your plant material.
Here are some of our favorite mediums to infuse with using your brand new Ardent MINI:


Cannabinoids like THC are fat soluble and butter is one of the best mediums to infuse. Cannabutter has an infusion rate of about 93% and is a very efficient delivery method.

Cannabis-infused butter is easy to make and can be used in a variety of recipes including brownies, cookies, cakes, muffins, rice krispie treats, or pies.

Infused butter can be used in savory dishes as well, like pasta sauces, grilled cheese, or even on top of a baked potato or corn on the cob.

Milk & Cream

Infused milk and cream are surprisingly easy to make. You can enjoy canna-milk with cereal for a wake and bake, or drink it alone. Your infusion can be substituted for dairy in most recipes, so you can use it to make mac and cheese, ice cream, mashed potatoes, or more.

Cream has a 70% infusion rate, while milk has about 50%, which is lower than butter or oil. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth making, but you might have to use a little more for a potent edible experience.

Coconut Oil

The Ardent MINI transforms coconut oil into a magical delight!

One of the most popular types of edibles are cannabis gummies. Infused coconut oil works perfectly to make these classic treats. You can choose the flavor, shape, and texture of the herbal gummies to customize your experience.

Coconut oil can be used as an ingredient in just about EVERYTHING – including skincare and hair care products, and of course, in cooking and baking. It’s full of healthy fats, an especially great source for infusion, and a dairy-free and vegan substitute for butter that works just as well.

Coconut oil is also great for making hand salves and whipped body creams, or simply apply the infusion directly on your scalp, cuticles, hands, and body as an instant moisturizer. Toss some into your morning smoothie or your coffee to make a filling bulletproof brew.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil is regularly used for cooking, especially frying and greasing. You can get a little cannabis boost whenever you cook by using your cannabis-infused olive oil during regular cooking. Infused EVOO is ideal for:

It’s possible to infuse other types of cooking oil, too. Try using your Ardent MINI to make peanut, canola, or sesame oil, depending on your dietary preferences.

Ghee (Clarified Butter)

Ghee is clarified butter, which means that all of the water and milk solids have been removed, leaving only fat. It’s similar to oil, just in butter form, has a higher smoke point than other oils and butters, and boasts a naturally nutty, sweet flavor.

Ghee is commonly used in east Asian and Indian cooking, and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practices. In India, they’ve combined cannabis or bhang with ghee to increase bioavailability for just as long.
Ghee has about a 90% infusion rate and can bring some extra spice to these dishes. It’s used to fry pakora, temper curries, make samosas, and bake naan. Infused ghee doesn’t need to be used in cooking or baking – it actually can be eaten and enjoyed by the spoonful!
