Cannabis butter (also known as CannaButter, weed butter, pot butter, bud butter etc.) is one of the most common ingredients in many weed recipes and you could easily cook your favorite marijuana recipe in no time once you are an expert with making Cannabis butter.
Cooking/Storage Equipment Required:
- Stove for heating marijuana butter
- Medium-sized heavy duty sauce pan/pot with lid
- Whisk or a large fork
- A measuring cup
- Cheese cloth
- A large bowl
- Freezable container to store Cannabis butter
- 1 lbs of unsalted butter
- 1 ounce of premium, middle, or low grade Cannabis
- 2 cups of water
The first thing to do is to grind the cannabis, nice and fine to make cannabis butter. A coffee grinder could be used for this purpose. A hand grinder may, alternatively, be used to grind the cannabis.
Put 2 cups of water for a boil and add the butter once the water is boiling. Allow it to melt in the water and reduce the flame. Cover the pan so that the cannabis butter simmers. You now need to add the grinded cannabis material to the pan. After you have added the finely ground cannabis powder, whisk and mix it into the pot slowly and thoroughly and do make sure that the solution is smooth. There should not be any lumps in the pot butter crock pot. Now, you need to replace the lid and simmer on the lowest flame. It is very important for you to make sure that bottom of the pan does not get burned when cooking pot butter else it will have an effect on taste of the CannaButter.
Once you are done with this, you need to simmer the cannabis butter and cook for 22-24 hours so that THC can be extracted from the cannabis. After this, you can take the cannabis butter off the heat. You can now extract the used cannabis material from the butter solution to avoid bits while using the butter. For this, you can place a cheese cloth over an open bowl. Do make sure that the cloth does not go with the liquid when it is getting poured through it. Now, you can pour the butter solution into the large bowl.
Place the bowl with the cannabis butter solution into the fridge and leave it until it has set, this may take around 2-4 hours. This will help in separating the fats (cannabis butter) from the water.
Use a spoon or spatula to remove the marijuana butter in such a way that you scrape out all of the pot butter that is at the top of the bowl, leaving the water and other stuff at the bottom.
Now it is time for you to discard the remaining liquid and place the cannabis butter in an air-tight container that would be placed in the freezer to keep the butter fresh and its potency on the high side.
The cannabis butter could be used to make a lot of things such as weed brownies, hash cakes, and cannabis cookies.
