Weed butter is the cook’s first step on the way of the great chef of the edibles. If you master the basic cannabis butter recipe, you can prepare any other dish that causes euphoria. Biscuits, muffins, and even tea with marijuana will be your favorite treat at a party or an invigorating breakfast before studying or work.
However, THC butter is not only just a psychoactive food additive — it still has all the advantages of marijuana. It means that you will feel antianxiety, anti-inflammatory, appetite-wakening, sedative, or stimulant effects. All those who need marijuana as a medical product can use edibles to relieve suffering.
But still, the best thing about cannabis butter is its simplicity of cooking. You can handle it even if you’ve never come to the stove before. There is even a cooking option where you only need a saucepan. Of course, the quality of the final product always depends on the effort, but even if you do a minimal job, you will get a lot. We will teach you the best cannabutter recipe!
As with any edible, you need to decarboxylate buds to make the magic happen. The fresh flowers contain THC Acid, which has unique beneficial properties, but still less relevant than THC for us. The buds activate when they are heated, and we usually do this when we set them on fire in a bong or joint. However, making cannabutter does not involve open fire.
In the kitchen, we have several options to decarboxylate the nugs: to heat them in the oven or directly in butter. The oven is better because your flowers will be partially ready when you start mixing them with butter, and they will exchange substances better.
Here is how to do it
- Heat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius).
- Place the whole buds on the baking tray in one layer.
- Cover them with baking paper or foil.
- Heat the flowers for about 40 minutes in the oven
- Take it out and let it cool down.
- Grind and make sure you make butter without seeds and stems.
- You are great!
If you want to make weed butter without using an oven, just grind the buds.
Weed butter recipe directions
As with any recipe, we start with the gathering of ingredients
- THC or CBD containing buds. In any case, you need to decarboxylate them.
- 1 cup of butter.
- 1 cup of water.
Water is necessary so that the heat from the bottom of the pot is transferred more smoothly, and the oil does not burn. So do not ignore this component, as the water will evaporate from your butter during the cooking process.
- Place the saucepan on a low fire.
- Pour the water.
- Add the butter immediately afterward.
- Wait until the butter has completely dissolved.
- Add ground cannabis.
- Stew your pot butter in low heat for several hours or until all water has evaporated.
- Let the marijuana butter cool down.
- String it through a cheesecloth or fine mesh to remove all plant particles.
- Cool the butter in the fridge.
When it cools down, the butter will harden, and the excess water will separate. Just drain it and enjoy your masterpiece.
Don’t rush to add a ton of cannabis-infused butter to each meal, as you may get quite a potent edible which you should eat according to some rules.
How to use weed butter
The easiest way is to use it as an ingredient for other recipes. Almost any dish that you know can find a place for THC butter. Cannabis cookies or brownies can be quite ordinary except for your secret ingredient. You can even make cannabis popcorn by covering the corn with marijuana butter before heating it. The main thing is to warn those you treat of the consequences.
The strength of your pot butter depends on you. You can use a variety of different raw materials. In our opinion, the best choice is bubble hash. It is the purest concentrate collected with water — so it will supplement your butter with a high THC content without unpleasant taste.
If you choose Sativa instead of Indica, the result will be stimulating and fun, not soothing. In other words, the quality of the raw material is consistent with the quality of the final product. The ratio of cannabis weight to butter weight determines the concentration of the butter, that is, how much butter you need to take to feel the euphoria.
Now you know how to turn the cannabutter recipe into life. Use this product as a cosmetic, medical, or culinary means. Do not forget to take breaks between using the edibles, as it takes half an hour to cause the effect. You can easily exceed your usual dosage and green out. The potency of homemade weed butter is difficult to calculate. Moreover, your feelings depend on your body weight and health. Take your time and do not add too much butter to your dishes. Use it responsibly and prompt the inexperienced!
