How to Make CannaButter – Easy

The backbone of many cannabis edibles is marijuana butter, commonly known as “Cannabutter.” When you learn how to produce marijuana butter, you have access to a whole new world of cannabis culture. It’s worth noting that there are various ways to create marijuana butter; however, this is the marijuana butter recipe that my friends and I have perfected over the years and that we still use today!

I’d want to start by noting that I don’t know how to cook or bake, yet our recipe has received a lot of acclaims! This is more of a science experiment that we have continuously improved upon, and we have discovered that the more oil you can attach to the butter, the stronger the result will be.

THC Butter Recipe: Homemade Pot Butter

Marijuana butter is made from clippings/trim from domestic crops. You may use crushed marijuana nugs or shake, but we found this marijuana butter recipe to be pretty dank for people on a budget. If you’re anything like me, you won’t see sense in wasting all that dank cannabis flower that could have easily been puffed up in a pan of brownies. Use the remaining trim and trimmings to help your kush reach its full potential. You’re welcome to use a whole half-ounce of flower on a plate of brownies, but you could end up with more cooked than you intended.

I don’t always utilize the plant’s stems, even though they contain significant levels of THC. If you wish to use stems in your cannabutter, ensure sure none of the prickly suckers make it into the finished product.

How Much Cannabutter Does an Ounce Make?


When cooking with cannabis, the general guideline is that four sticks of butter are required for every ounce of marijuana. As a result, if you’re cooking half an ounce of pot, you’ll need two sticks of butter! Who’d have guessed math could be so valuable?

Is it possible to make Cannabutter from fresh/wet trim?


Prepare the clippings/trim to begin the procedure. Remove all of the residues and stems from the mixture, leaving only the leaves. We’ve discovered that the most effortless approach to mulch up the clip or trim is to put it through a food processor. Here’s when the bud’s surface area comes into play.

Consider this: when you boil a whole marijuana bud for infusion, the exterior of the leaf is responded to. This is potentially wasteful because you aren’t obtaining all of the oil from the product. Turning the same leaf into the sand, on the other hand, releases extra oil that may be discovered within the leaf. You may use a food processor to press the leaves through the blade and get the desired result. Whether the leaves are dried or fresh, you can mulch a large bag of marijuana trim in no time.

After that, fill your cooking pot with the clipped trim from your chosen marijuana strain.

You can produce marijuana butter out of whatever you can get your hands on with this THC butter recipe. Use a tiny pot if you’re making a small batch of trim. Use numerous pots if there is a lot of trim. Fill it one-third of the way with mulch, regardless of the method you employ.

Then add the butter sticks and water in a 1/4-to-one ratio, which is 16 oz of water for every stick of butter (4 oz). Continue doing so until the mixture has filled 2/3 of the container. You don’t want to fill it since the boiling liquid might spill out if the pot becomes too hot.

It’s time to turn up the heat now that you’ve got a large pot of floating marijuana flakes and butter sticks. I prefer to crank the stove up and stir as required. This permits the combination to heat up to its maximum temperature, which is one of the ways to acquire more oil from your plant!

Some individuals like to utilize a low-heat approach, such as in a crockpot, and let the food sit for a long time. However, this merely results in a strong odor that can linger in your home for up to a week. That’s not to say our approach doesn’t produce a delicate scent, but it won’t be cooking for a whole day in a crockpot.

Reduce the heat to approximately 6 or 7/ when it reaches a rolling boil. Then cook it until roughly half of the water in the pot has evaporated (around 1-1.5 hours). Then, add more water until the water level is back to where it was when you started. Rep this process once or twice more (we like to do it twice to be safe, but once will also suffice.

We’ll take the faster approach over the long boil method any day of the week – it’s been tried and true by cannabis enthusiasts. We can only present you with the most excellent top-tier knowledge to help you out, whether you are producing this butter for recreational or medicinal uses.

Cannabutter Molds

There should be a lot of oil floating on top of the mixture after three to four hours. The mixture is then strained through a flat strainer set on top of the container that will be stored in the fridge. This is where your butter will be kept as it hardens.

There will be a mound of mulch on the strainer once the water has flowed through it. I used to push the mulch against the sieve to extract the remaining moisture, but we discovered a better approach to get more bang for our buck! We squeezed balls of mulch with our hands until they were plum-sized, and this worked brilliantly for extracting additional liquid from our combination. So, to create that juice, we advocate employing those flesh forks!

When all of the liquid has been emptied into your container, the oil (the thing on top) will have separated from the water (on the bottom). Refrigerate the container for at least one night. The oil will have solidified into a solid lump of exquisite marijuana butter by the time you wake up the following day. When removing it from the container, be cautious. You don’t want to spill anything since it can make the kitchen smell terrible.

Now that you have your block of marijuana butter and keep an eye on it for mold every few days. If properly preserved, it should survive at least a couple of weeks (airtight with no moisture). However, if you want to avoid mold altogether, put the butter in the refrigerator. Because you have to soften it first, it’s a little more challenging to bake and cook with, but it lasts a lot longer.
