Our Six-Step Guide to the Perfect “Canna-Butter”
Here is a six-step guide to making the perfect canna-butter
1. Decarboxylate the cannabis
Grind the decarboxylated cannabis coarsely with a hand grinder.
3. Melt the butter
1 cup of butter into a stock pot or saucepan. Simmer on low and let the butter melt. TIP: Never add water.
4. Add the cannabis
As the butter begins to melt, add in your coarsely ground cannabis product.
Maintain low heat (ideally above 160ºF but never exceeding 200ºF) and let the mixture simmer for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture should never come to a full boil.
6. Strain the cannabutter
Set a funnel on top of a jar and line it with cheesecloth. Once the butter has cooled off, pour it over the cheesecloth funnel and allow it to strain freely. (Tip: Squeezing the cheesecloth may push more bad-tasting plant material through). Refrigerate the jar of butter. Refer to dosing information below before adding your butter to any snacks, dishes, or desserts.
