Cannabis Butter (Cannabutter)

by Cannadish
Cannabis butter is a great basic to make cannabis-infused food and can be used for any recipe that requires butter.

In order for THC to properly decarboxylate—change from its acid form to its psychoactive form—the cannabis needs to be heated at low temperatures. For less cannabis flavor, there is an option to soak your cannabis in hot water for 8 hours before starting this recipe. Since THC is not water soluble it won’t take away any of the potency.AD


Important: If using a mason jar, make sure to start with cold water, and also let the water cool back gradually so it won’t shatter.

THC Dosage: 43-86 MG per tablespoon

Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap in aluminum foil and freeze.

I would say that if you freeze it it would stay for quite some time 6 months Maybe.
I think I’m going to try this recipe to see how it comes out last time I just did it stovetop not a double boiler.

What is the best butter to use for my cannabis?

Andrea February 16, 2019 - 7:20 pm

Unsalted I think would be best. I use actual butter not margarine. Kerry Gold butter would be amazing for this!!

You’re best to use butter with the,’highest butter fat’,content.
This brings the THC infusion out best. Good Luck & Happy Canna-Cooking✊

If you use 1 cup of butter you will get 1 cup of cannabutter, top of the recipe also says yields 1 cup 🙂

If I make it this way compared to putting into a slow cooker will cooking it this way in the mason jar stop my whole house from smelling?
