How To Make Cannabis Butter
Category: Recipes | Posted on Sat, October, 19th 2013 by THCFinder
There's different ways of cooking with weed. Some people prefer to make the cannabis butter that they use as they use it, while others prefer to always have a container of cannabis butter in their house. There's two different ways to make the cannabis butter. If you're only using it per baking session, my recommendation is the following method:
Get a coffee grinder and grind your weed up very well. To the point where it genuinely just looks like kief, rather than bud. At this point, add it to butter that you have melted on the stove. When doing this method, I usually replace the oil that the recipe calls for with the butter. I personally don't strain the butter when I use this method. Since the marijuana is ground up in such a fine way before hand, there is no need to really filter it.
However, if you're going to make a good amount of cannabis butter to store, there is a different way to make it. This way is slightly more complicated but I believe that it produces a much better result in the end. It just takes more time to do this. Also, I recommend that if you make a large amount of butter, use it! Don't let it go to waste. I don't cook with cannabis a lot, hence why I don't have blocks of cannabis butter in my refrigerator. The second way to make the butter is as follows;
What You'll Need:
4 grams of butter (Not margarine)
2 grams of weed (This amount is your choice... The amount shown is a rough estimate for a medium high)
Place a pan on your stove at low heat, adding your 4g of butter to the pan. Let it melt into a liquid. Once the butter has melted, you can add your finely ground marijuana to the butter. When you grind up the weed, make sure that it's as finely ground as you can possibly get it. A coffee grinder works best but if you don't have one, just keep regrinding your weed until it's very fine. The marijuana that you use should be fairly dry. Once the bud has been added to the butter, be sure to stir is occasionally over the course of 10-15 minutes. Stirring is very important, as it releases more THC in to the butter. When the butter turns to a dark green/almond color, it's done. Strain the butter through a coffee filter to make sure that there is no plant matter left. Squeeze the coffee filter as much as possible to make sure that you've extracted all of the butter from the plant matter.
Now, put the butter in the refrigerator until it hardens. The final product can be put in drinks as well as food. You can make it as strong or as weak as you want. It is recommended that you work up to the higher doses of cannabis butter, rather than throwing an entire quarter in to a single cup of cannabis tea and end up passing out for three days straight. While there are stoners out there that can ingest that much weed in a single dose, not everyone is there right away.
