How To Make Cannabutter
Making cannabutter is a relatively simple process. The first step is to determine how much THC you want in your butter based on this Edible Dosing Calculator.
After you have the right amount of cannabis, the next step is to decarboxylate your cannabis, which means heating it to activate the THC. You can do this by baking it at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 45 minutes or using a vaporizer.
Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, the next step is to make the butter. Next, melt 1/2 cup of butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once melted, add your decarboxylated cannabis and stir continuously for about 3 hours. Be sure not to let the butter get too hot, or it will start to smoke.
After 3 hours, strain the butter through a cheesecloth into a glass jar. You can then store it in the fridge or freezer. When ready to use, place one or two tablespoons of your cannabutter in a saucepan, melt over low heat, and then add to your food.
