How To Make Cannabutter

The right cannabis butter fits wells with any meal and making at-home edibles.

If you want to bake up some seriously awesome cannabis-infused edibles or simply make some butter to mix with every-day cooking, you have to know how to make high-quality cannabutter. Knowing how to make delightful cannabutter is still a pretty rare thing, which is why we are here. In this article, you will learn a few simple steps for making the best, most mind-blowing cannabutter you’ve ever had.

Yields1 Serving

 1 oz Dried Cannabis
 2 cups Butter (you can also use coconut, canola, olive, or peanut oil)

For this, you will need a Large saucepan, Wooden spoon, Large bowl, Cheesecloth and String or rubber band
1

Use a small coffee grinder, blender, or any other sort of grinder to get your weed as finely ground as possible. The finer the powder, the better.

2

Fill a large pot with 4-5 inches of water and bring to a boil.

3

When the water is boiling, add the butter and wait until it is fully melted.

4

Once the butter melted, turn the heat to low and carefully pour in the cannabis.

5

Allow the butter-weed mixture to cook on low for about 3 hours.
Stir it every 15 minutes and do not let it boil—boiling will damage the cannabinoids.
As the butter-weed mixture cooks, the butter will become much darker and thicker.

6

Use your string or rubber band to secure a double layer of cheesecloth over a large bowl.
Leave the cloth a little slack, so all your precious weed butter doesn’t spill over the edges when you pour it onto the cloth.
When the butter-weed mixture has thickened up and looks glossy, carefully pour mixture through cheesecloth.

7

After the melted butter has strained through the cloth, carefully remove the string or rubber band securing the cheesecloth to the bowl
lift the cloth up by its corners, and slowly squeeze out the remaining butter.

8

Allow the hot cannabutter to cool to room temperature, then place the bowl into the refrigerator.

9

Through the cooling process, the cannabutter will have floated to the top of the water and solidified.
Once the cannabutter is solid, run a knife around the edge of the bowl and remove your weed butter.
Carefully remove any water still stuck to the underside of the cannabutter.

10

Through the slow and low cooking process, the cannabinoids in the bud bind to the fats in the butter, giving you a super high quality cannabis-infused final product.
