Learn how to make cannabutter (cannabis infused butter) with this simple to follow recipe which includes TIPS for maximum potency. You can use either unsalted butter or for a non dairy alternative you can use coconut oil. The ratios are the same in this recipe for either. In this video I chose to use coconut oil.
Coconut Oil I use – https://amzn.to/2VYc8n1
Ratio is 1:1 = 1 cup Butter (or Coconut Oil) : 1 cup Water
You will need:
Cannabis (decarbed) – amount varies depending on desired potency
Baking Sheet + parchment paper or non stick silicone sheet
Sauce pan (one with a heavy bottom is preferred but not necessary)
Candy thermometer (not necessary but useful)
Wide mouth Mason Jar + Rubber Band
Pillowcase or cheese cloth
Decarb Cannabis to release its psychoactive and medicinal properties by making THC and CBD more bioavailable to you.
Preheat oven to 240°F and place cannabis buds on baking sheet evenly dispersed. Bake for 30 minutes then remove from oven and break apart buds to increase surface area for better infusion.
Add oil and water to sauce pan and turn burner on to lowest possible setting. Place candy thermometer into mixture. ***Do not exceed 200°F. Once the oil has melted into the water add cannabis and stir.
**this can be done without a candy thermometer. Just make sure the mixture does not start a full rolling boil (when the bubbles are rapidly breaking the surface). A few little bubbles are fine and indicate it's around 200°F. Just make sure your stove element is on its lowest possible setting.
You will have to keep an eye on your butter as it will be on the stove top for 2-3 hours. Most if not all the water should be boiled off by 2-3 hours.
Once oil has completed its time on the stove stop strain mixture into a jar using a pillowcase or cheese cloth with an elastic band.
Once the mixture has been strained you can pour it into a more accessible container. Place it in the fridge for a few hours until the butter has become solid. At this point you can drain any excess water and use the cannabutter in your baking! Enjoy
