Cannabis Butter Recipe. Why we want Cannabutter for edibles

THE CANNABUTTER, sometimes called also ‘cannabis butter’ or ‘marijuana butter’, is the regular butter infused with marijuana. Cannabutter is used as a component for almost all edible recipes, except those where cannabis oil is used or more rarely raw decarbed weed (like in smoothies). Also the cannabutter, or cannabis oil, is yet another perfect way to preserve weed potency and to store your weed stock, as it counts zero to none issues comparing to keeping a dry weed. The Cannabutter is the essential ingredient to cook almost all marijuana edibles, sweets, candies, brownies and cheesecakes: all marijuana recipes

Cannabutter Cooking Recipe

This is the very simple cooking recipe, however it requires the special accuracy when holding a temperature regime on the different stages, this is important as this saves THC. Well, for the cannabutter we shall need the following:


1 LB. of BUTTER (400-450 g, and it’s NOT a margarine)
1/2 OZ. of MARIJUANA BUDS (which is 14-15g, or 1 oz. of shake, leaf & stems)

You can use smaller amounts, but you count how many THC you get per gram of the cannabutter, to use this information when you cook and expect your high from the edibles. This amount and concentration is the best example for storing and having an amount for several cooking sessions, but nothing stops you from infusing 200g of butter with 3-4 grams of weed for making a tray of brownies for the whole evening.

Cooking Cannabutter is Boiling slowly in Bath-marie (boiling water) hold the temperature regime for THC to save while cooking these recipes

Cannabutter Cooking Directions

How to Decarboxylate your weed before doing cannabutter, read it it’s essential step otherwise you risk to lose your high or even not get it at all. It’ll take extra 40-60 minutes the whole process of decarboxylation yet it’s the most essential step, and we detect its readiness by color by bare eye, you’ll certainly gain your experience after a couple of attempts, and of course read more by the link on how to decarb and why we want it.

Melt the butter at low fire, low temperature. Keep it in the condition ‘just about to start boiling’, small bubbles you allow, a whole volcano you avoid.

Add up decarboxylated marijuana buds into the liquid butter.

Continue at slow fire, at ‘bath marie’ (over boiling water), for 6-7 hours.

While Cooking Cannabutter the Gauze Filter is Filtering a Hot Batter of Cannabutter Recipe

Filter the melted butter from weed, use a classic paper filter or a medical gauze, the latter I prefer to use (as shown on the picture). The substance in the filter is the plant tissue and other stuff, it’s already empty on this stage, just throw it away. The liquid butter (already a “cannabutter” rich with thc and cbd and the whole set of cannabinoids) let cool down at home temperature, and it’s ready.

How long can I keep cannabutter?

This kind of butter, the drawn butter is stored long enough, as being cooked traditionally especially for preservation purpose, with or without weed, long before the fridge was even invented. If properly sealed and prepared from six month to one or even two years depending on all other conditions too, of course. Maybe too much and the most sources recommend taking 6 months as a maximum, some of them say 6 month in room temperature, choose relatively dark and cool place, fridge is better anyway as it is dark and cool already and the preservation term may be a little longer. Just be reasonable. These are guidelines, also personal experience, not rules.

Cooking Marijuana Edibles

Consuming cannabis as edibles may bring an issue and an uncomfortable feel, be careful. It is a pleasant way to consume marijuana, if nicely cooked. Mayke it carefully, as any other recipe to make the best cookies and cakes. There might be a reason why people smoke for 12,000 years.

Cannabutter cooking directions

A regular butter, drawn and infused with marijuana. But fisrt we decarboxylate marijuana buds, first, heating up till 220 Fahrenheit (105 Celsius) for an hour or even less, more often 40-60 minutes,

Then heat the butter until it gets liquid and add this just decarbed cannabis into the bowl, keep next 6-7 hours at ‘bath marie’, and everything goes on the slow fire.

You heat that 6-7 hours the whole blend in ‘bath marie’ (never allow it reach the vaporization point, at 330 Fahrenheit, about 200 Celsius the THC may disappear very rapidly). When ready let it cool down at room temperature, it will result something like on the picture below.

A veg oil can be used for the same purpose and by the same directions, in case you prefer deserts based on oil rather than butter. Both are brilliant to preserve weed, yet oil even longer, as long as oil stands, virtually.

Cannabutter is a butter with a spice in it, infused. Then used in the cooking recipes, potent with THC or CBD or altogether, we’ve collected these recipes into the app how to cook the best cannabis yummies.

Temperatures for cooking cannabis edibles

THC vaporises in a relatively low temperatures, the optimal range is about 180 to 200 Celsius (350-390 Fahrenheit). By cooking you can easily destroy the most of the most desirable element out of your marijuana cookie simply by temperature. Keep it in mind.

Yoo-hoo! CHEF 420!!

The very famous through the social media marijuana chef – The Chef 420 (here is his photo on the above image, HAHAHA!) recommends a very practical way – the cannabis butter recipe – to store your buds effectively for further cooking:

❝ The most convenient way to use and store marijuana for cooking is to make marijuana butter, which can be cut into pieces or poured into molds and ziploc bagged for freezing and later used in cooking of all kinds. Here is the basic recipe:
1 lb. of butter (no margarine)
1/2 ounce of marijuana buds
(or 1 ounce of shake, leaf & stems)..❞

Why we cook cannabis instead of smoking

The butter is not the thing we eat straight away. But this is what we need for bakery, for a variety of weed cookies, weed brownies and other delicious cannabis infused desserts. This is an effective way to store the harvest (suggesting same or a longer term, from six and up months, no molds, no ventilation required, etc; cannabutter is just lying in a fridge sealed). Also it provides yet another way of consumption, tasty yummies, cheesecakes and brownies, candies infused, not to mention cooking is entertaining.

A few other reasons why people start cooking weed edibles, one may be in having no wish to smoke. It may be hard to smoke for someone, or impossible or as simple as no wish, — pretty same or very similar reason (or reasons) why people go for vaporization.

Another may be in getting bored, or if you’re stock with it by health reasons, looking desperately for another brilliant idea how else to consume medical marijuana. And win some certain benefits from this new way of storing your bud, relatively trouble free, by means of preserving it into canna butter or canna oil.

We can guess that less smell may also be quite a reason if having a handful of marijuana-candies in a pocket while many in the surrounding are still locked by the stereotypes of the past century, is just convenient. And fun to share with friends (where legal to share)). But have in mind that when you cook cannabutter it may produce a very strong smell well beyond your apartment (then you cook pretty usual, but making caannabutter is smelly).
