This simple cannabis butter recipe is all you need to prepare homemade foods with just an eighth of an ounce of weeds and a piece of butter, courtesy of Leafbuyer. So get your favorite variety at the local pharmacy and put on the chef's hat. Let's start!
How to make cannabutter
Ingredients / accessories required:
3.5 grams (1/8 ounce) cannabis
1 piece of butter
6 cups of water
Pot for boiling water
Step 1: grind your cannabis
To begin, buy an eighth (1/8) ounce of cannabis at the pharmacy or measure 3.5 grams from a larger container of herbs on a scale. Next, put the cannabis in a grinder and turn it into a shake texture. So far, pretty easy!
(NOTE: You can add a little more or a little less cannabis depending on how strong you want your butter to be. After going through the process several times, you have a more precise idea of which dosage suits you best THC level of the strain used. Higher THC levels result in stronger butter).
Step 2: Simmer and cook the cannabis butter
Your next task is to pour 6 cups of water into a saucepan and heat it until it boils. Once you've cooked well, it's time to put the butter stick and your ground cannabis in the pot.
You will see the butter melt as you smell the fresh smell of cannabinoids extracted from the marijuana. Continue cooking and occasionally stir the herb / butter / water mixture for at least an hour. The longer you heat the cannabis, the more cannabinoids are extracted. However, it should be almost completely extracted within an hour or two, and that means full potency.
(NOTE: at no point during the process do you want the water to boil. When cannabis is cooked at boiling temperatures, the cannabinoids are actually "burned" or vaporized and the butter loses effectiveness. Probably not what you hope for.) .
Step 3: Strain and compress the cannabis butter
So about an hour and a half has passed. You stirred the pot with cannabis, boiling water and a piece of butter. The fresh scent of cannabis butter permeates the house and you are ready for the next step.
Line your strainer with a cheesecloth and hold it over a Tupperware bowl large enough to hold everything that cooks in the pot, cabbage, melted butter, and water. Then pour the contents of the pot over the sieve and into the Tupperware. The cheese cloth catches all cannabis flowers from the pot and separates them from the remaining ingredients.
Next, wring out the cheesecloth (full of marijuana leaves) and drop the juices into the Tupperware. The soaked leaves contain plenty of extracted cannabinoids. So don't forget this step. If you forget this, the potency of your cannabis butter will be significantly reduced!
Once you've squeezed the last drop of cannabis oil out of the cheese cloth, you can throw the cloth and leaves in the trash and prepare for the next step.
Step 4: cool the cannabutter
Now take the Tupperware with cannabis oil, melted butter and water and put it in the fridge for about five hours. Get out there, have fun. Grab a pre-roll and paint the city red. Or take a nap. Whatever you need to do, just know that you will have fresh cannabis butter ready very soon.
The cannabis butter begins to solidify in the refrigerator and separate from the water. You will see a layer of light green butter rise on the container and the rest of the water is underneath.
Step 5: pour out the water
After five hours have passed and the cannabis butter has separated from the water, remove the Tupperware container from the refrigerator. Use a knife or other kitchen utensil to pull the butter layer out of the container to make the process easier. You may need to break up the butter so that it can be picked up and removed.
Next, pour the water out of the Tupperware and put the cannabutter back in. Now you've got edible marijuana! Remember to keep the cannabis butter chilled.
Step 6: enjoy edible food with your cannabutter
So how are you going to arouse your edible enthusiasm? There are countless options. Spread a little canna butter on a bagel or English muffin for a "quick fix". Would you like to make breakfast a little more exciting? Spread a layer of cannabis butter on a French toast.
You may want to bake a small amount of brownies or cookies. Just replace the regular butter with cannabutter in the recipe and you're ready to go. How about Rice Krispies Treats? Here's a great recipe for Weed Fruity Pebbles Krispies if you want to get stoned like Fred Flintstone.
