Cannabis ButterCannabis Butter

Cannabis butter is a healthy alternative to smoking or vaporizing your medical cannabis.  The effects do not set in as rapidly as vaporizing, but they do last longer and it is more of a whole body stone then a complete head high.

People that use cannabis for pain have mentioned that the relief of consuming their medication worked some what better then vaporizing.  While there are no current clinical studies regarding the effectiveness of alternative consumption methods, such as marijuana butter, many cannabis patients find marijuana butter to be effective alternatives to smoking or vaporizing.

One crucial thing that you must remember is to use REAL butter, not that fake store bought spread, vegan butter, margarine, or any other type butter substitute.  Anything but using real butter will make your cannabis butter sub-standard.

Let’s Get Started;

The Cannabis must be heated to activate it’s effects in edible form.  This is often accomplished while infusing your cannabis into your cannabis butter, or by decarboxylation.  Which then your cannabis butter can then be used as an ingredient in cooking, baking or as a spread.

The ratio between butter and cannabis is usually around 3.5 to 7 grams of dried cannabis per 1 pound of butter.  This ratio will yield a great tasting and effective cannabis butter.  The higher the THC content of your cannabis, the more potent your butter will be.  For exact calculations be sure to purchase a copy of our “Cooking with Cannabis” Cookbook.

We will be exploring 2 methods for creating your cannabis butter.  The first is the stove top method and the second is the oven method.  The stove top method, while quicker, means you are more likely to burn off temperature-sensitive cannabinoids.

To prevent this from happening the butter mixture must remain between 93.3 C (200 F) and 121 C (250 F).  The oven method means a longer wait time, but requires less active cooking time which means you don’t have to watch the temperature the whole time.  Both methods work great and you can choose which best suits you.

Ingredients:
  • 3.5-7 Grams grams of cannabis; crushed or ground
  • 454 grams Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Cup of Water (optional)

NOTE: The ratio between butter and cannabis should be about 3.5 to 7 grams of dried marijuana per 1 pound of butter.

Directions for Stove Top Method:

  • Add water and butter to a small pot and bring to a gentle simmer (NOT a boil)
  • As butter begins to melt, add you ground marijuana to the mixture
  • Lower heat and simmer for 2-3 hours (up to 6), stirring occasionally (add more water if necessary to regulate temperature)
  • Strain your marijuana butter through a cheesecloth into a refrigerator safe bowl
  • Let the straining marijuana butter sit over the bowl for five minutes allowing excess butter to seep
  • Allow to cool, and then refrigerate over night
  • The butter will separate from the water forming a green crust, (your cannabis butter) on the surface
  • Lift out butter from water and dispose of remaining liquid
  • Keep your cannabis butter refrigerated until ready to use

For Oven Method:

  • Add butter to oven safe pot w/ lid.
  • Add decarboxylated cannabis, and top with lid
  • Add to oven on 220°F for 5-6 hours, when finished,
  •  Strain your cannabis butter through a cheesecloth into a heat/refrigerator safe bowl
  • Let the straining cannabis butter sit over the bowl for five minutes allowing excess butter to seep
