Cannabis Butter Recipe


baking ingredientsTo make cannabis butter, you will need:

-A pound of unsalted butter

-An ounce of marijuana (decarboxylated)

-A double boiler, regular pot, or slow cooker

-Cheesecloth or a coffee filter

-A storage container




Place the butter and marijuana in the upper part of the double boiler or pot you have. Fill the lower part of the double boiler with water, and place it on the stove over low heat. Allow the butter and marijuana to simmer for three hours or more, stirring occasionally. After three hours, remove the upper part of the double boiler from the heat. Place a cheesecloth or coffee filter over a storage container, and pour the contents of the double boiler through it. Let the mixture cool, and then refrigerate it for several hours. Your cannabis butter is now ready to use!

If you have a regular pot or slow cooker, you don’t need water in the bottom of the double boiler pot. You can just use cheesecloth and butter with your ground marijuana flower. Also, if you want to cook your marijuana butter for longer, make sure to turn down the heat slightly. Some people recommend cooking the cannabis infused butter for 8 hours on low temperature! Either way, your cannabis infused butter will be potent and ready to use the same day you made it.
