The Recipe of Cannabis Butter

  1. Your first task is to put your cannabis pieces to the mixer grinder and grind them well. Remember it should be even finer that powdered coffee. So, make sure they are grinded really really well. This is a very important process in the making of the cannabis butter.
  2. Next, take the sauce pan and pour two cups of water in it with the measuring cup. Now bring it to boil and add the unsalted butter to the water. Keep your oven flame low and let the water and the butter simmer for some time. Let this process continue till the water has almost evaporated and you have thick melted butter.
  3. Now, add the finely pulverized cannabis into the butter and the water mixture. It is here that the importance of fine grinding comes into play. Unless they are fine, the cannabis powder will not blend properly. Immediately after you pour the powder, use the electronic stirrer or your large spoon to whisk and blend properly so that there are no clumps that are formed. Clumps will destroy the texture of the cannabis butter.
  4. Let this entire solution simmer at minimum heat for 20 or 24 hours as required. However, this does not mean to keep it to boil and forget about it. Keep a track on the butter, if the water is not sufficient, your cannabis butter will burn even before it is made. Add a few cups of water if you feel the quantity is less.
  5. Do not keep the simmering going for more than 24 hours. Ut will become bitter if kept to boil for more than the prescribed time.
  6. Now, turn your stove off and let the solution cool down for 5 minutes
  7. Take the strainer or the cheese cloth to drain off the solution and have the smaller lumps out of it.
  8. Cool the solution and put it in the refrigerator for the cannabis butter to form. Thus, your butter is ready when it has cooled down.
