Cannabutter In 7 Easy Steps! - 420 Magazine:
www.420magazine.com › Methods of Medication › Cannabis Edibles?
If your looking to make some special treats, Cannabutter is a vital ingredient. The process of making cannabutter is basically just melting butter with marijuana, Straining the marijuana And then re-solidifying the butter. This works because THC (the chemical in marijuana that gets you "high") sticks to the fat cells in butter. Cannabutter can be used in any recipe that calls for butter or oil.
In this thread I will attempt to teach those who don't know how to make Cannabutter, how to do so. The pictures may help a little but in the end it's the text that will help you most.
You will need,
1.) A large saucepan
2.) A stir spoon
3.) Sticks Of Butter (Its about 1lb. of butter to every ounce of weed so make sure you do the math).
5.) Cheesecloth, and some elastics
6.) A couple tupperware containers with lids
Bring a few cups of water to a boil on the stovetop, it doesn't really matter how much water you use because in the end it will all be seperated,
Just make sure the marijuana is always floating about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the pan.
When the water is at a boil place the butter in the pan, again it's about 1lb. of butter, 4 sticks, to every ounce of marijuana, so if your using a half ounce of bud thats about 2 sticks of butter.
Be sure not to let the butter burn, if it appears to be burning then let melt on a medium setting.
Move the dial to low heat once butter has melted.
Now that the butter has melted you can now add the marijuana, Here I used about 5 grams of fresh nug and about 7 grams of vaped bud. Again make sure the stove is now on a low setting.
Stir occasionally, I tend to stir every time the mix starts bubbling.
I usually let the bud simmer for 3 hours, But you can always tell it's done when the top of the mix turns from a really watery consistency to glossy and thick.
While letting the mix simmer, You are now going to need to get the cheesecloth strainer ready, which will also be used to store the cannabutter.
Take two sheets of cheese cloth and fold each one over so they each have two layers, place these over a tupperware container (with the lid off), and secure them there with elastics.
When the water has turned glossy and thick on top it should look like this
You are now ready to strain the marijuana out of the mix, place your tupperware containers with the cheesecloth lids in the sink and slowly pour the entire mix on top of the cheesecloth like pictured here,
When the saucepan is empty carefully undo the elastic, pick up the cheesecloth from all four sides and squeeze all of the remaining butter out.
I throw away the marijuana after this, you can try and dry it out, let me know what happens.
Now place the lid on the tupperware and place it in the fridge to sit overnight,
You need to do this so the water can seperare from the cannabutter, be patient.
Now that you have awakened in anticipation for your new treat, its time to seperate the waste water!
It should appear to have The cannabutter on top, the waste water on bottom.
Take the lid off the tuperware and hold it upside down over the sink, place a dish in the sink to catch any cannabutter that may fall, squeeze two sides of the tupperware and the waste water will pour out, once all the water is gone your done! The cannabutter is ready to cook with.
If you do not wish to cook with it now, you can just place it back in the tupperware, place the lid back on and store it in the fridge.
And be careful, the high from eating "special edibles" is often considered much more intense then inhaling, lasting anywhere from 2-8 hours. Do not attempt to eat too many at first. And I wouldn't recommend driving. Just chill out, and enjoy!

Cannabis Butter / CannaButter Recipes - Cannabis.com
Cannabis Butter. (CannaButter) Recipe. CannaButter is something that many people would love to know how to make. Well, to be honest it is quite simple!
Materials you will need:
- A strong grinder to grind the Cannabis material.
- A stove to heat the CannaButter.
- A medium sized heavy duty sauce pan/pot with lid. It's important to have the pot the same size as the element that it is on to ensure even heat distribution.
- A measuring cup.
- A whisk or a large fork to mix the material with the water/butter solution in the pot.
- Cheese cloth to strain the material before cooling.
- A bowl large enough to hold and cool the CannaButter material.
- A space in your refrigerator to cool and separate the water from butter.
- A heavy duty plastic wrap to handle and compress the CannaButter into a smaller, easier to handle shape.
- A freezable container to store the material
- A space in your freezer to store the finished product.
Please Make sure you have all these things before you begin and have them set aside as you will need them immediately during and at the end of the CannaButter making process.
To make a strong CannaButter you will need to adjust the amount of Cannabis you use in accordance with the strength of butter you would like. It is not recommended to make weak CannaButter or reduce the Cannabis:Butter ratio as you may feel "ripped off" after you've tried the butter.
This recipe will make about 350g of medium-grade strength CannaButter.
Remember you will have a small loss when handling the material.

How to make Cannabutter Smell Free : treedibles - Reddit
I see alot of interest in a solid method of cooking cannabutter in a jar of some sorts in order to keep the smell down, so I decided to do some denial and error in order to provide you folks with the know how!
At the bottom of this guide, I have my most recent ideas of how to make this better, and I also welcome you to input your thoughts as well. If I post something that is wrong, let me know. If I post something that I say I am unsure of and you know it's correct, also let me know!
*BEGINNING OF GUIDE (General Information, Required Materials, Quantities, Techniques)
So basically, the biggest risk with cooking in a sealed container is that the pressure can build up inside the container, and perhaps maybe even to the point of your jar exploding, which is not ideal at all. I cannot guarantee that your jar will not explode when you make butter, however if you follow some of the tips in this guide it like help reduce the chance of it happening. I have never had this happen to me, but I cannot guarantee that it will not happen to you. However, I have came up with some preventative measures to keep this from happening so that you can cook some pretty badass butter without the smell.

How much marijuana do I use to make Cannabutter?
What is the best way to make cannabutter? This is my first time baking with marijuana so I do expect to make a mistake but I don't want to. I've read and read different methods but I don't know which one to use. Haha I just want to make special brownies for a family member to say thank you.
Can I use buds.. instead of shake because I don't have any?
How long should it boil because some say 20 minutes and others say 2 hours?
People say its good to use an oz of shake/buds but can I use a quarter?
Or will it suck? I'm low on marijuana right now and have a quarter left.
how much butter should I use?
Oh yeah the marijuana I'll be using is ak 47
BadKat's CannaPharm: Canna Caps, UV Reactive Glowing Hash Candy, Canna 'Bombs' & More
That is my fucking bible right there, badkat is a saint. I swear to god, make one of these recipes and you will never need to smoke your weed again. I eat almost exclusively now, where I almost never used to, because few people can make good cannabutter, and personally I like eating edible hash. This post shows you how to both with a professional touch.
It's not just canna butter, it's enhanced canna butter, and shows you how to cook with hash. The Canna Bombs and Canna Caps are my favorites. I haven't made the candy's or the drink's yet, just lots and lots of canna bombs and canna caps, but I need to try more of this stuff!
Edit: I just realized you only have a quarter ounce...uhhhhhhh, good luck.
Joz you killed it man good answer. You can use buds but it must be ground up good. How long? It depends on how much you will cook up. If a small amount like 4 or 5 grams will take 1 hour. Stuff like a half ounce or a good ounce is 2 hours. I hope you are going to make brownies. Just because I love brownies. You can make a lot more than just brownies if you want but brownies are sweet.
for a quarter of ground down pot. I would say boil for a good hour and a half. I want to say a 1 cup of unsalted butter. I made some with low grade middies and got tore up for lie 3 hours and passed out. LoL. Good luck.
You should never boil anything cus that'll take away from the oil that cannibus produces. Take a frying pan... put a stick of butter in, then put in the mj. Then slowly & carefully heat it up. You want it to be hot to touch but not boiling! Boiling will burn up the oil from the buds.
Let cook like that for about 10-15 minutes or till butter turns color. Then tape a coffee filter to the opening of a glass and slowly pour your butter into the filter. This way the filter catches the bud you thru in. Object is to have butter with the taste & effects, its not to actually munch on buds! Lol hope that helped!
Freeze dry your buds first and use anything with sugars (including lactose) like real butter. The deep freeze will help break up the thrichs and the butter will extract the thc from the plant... proportions are all over google.
Any and every part of the plant can be used. Good luck ^_^

How to make cannabutter? - Incredible, Edible Herb - Grasscity Forum
- forum.grasscity.com › Incredible, Edible Herb?
So ive tried to make cannabutter two times and i have been unsuccessful both times so i was wondering if someone could tell me how to do it and lead me to the easiest way. I do not have a double boiler so anything that works with one pot or a mason jar is good. Or if you can fix the way i did it it that would be great to.
What i did was put water in a larger pot and put that on the stove and i got a mason jar and put chopped up weed it in that and i put it in my grinder and put some butter in there about just one stick and i used about 2gs for the first time. And i put the jar in the pot slightly sealed and let it sit for 3-4 hours on slightly boiling and it turned out slightly green but still has some yellow in it. Then i put it in the refrigerator for tommorrow so i went to bed and around 6 in the afternoon i got it out and just tried to spread it on toasted bread. Since the butter was frozen i put it in the microwave for about 15 sec.... Is there anything i did wrong. I didnt eat all the butter too just some of it. Didnt feel like anythin....
no, never use water...
its pretty simple... I usually never make single servings, i make entire batches of budder
i break down the budder so I know how much weed is in every tablespoon of budder once im finished so I know how potent things will be
first weigh your weed
then figure out how many tablespoons of butter you have, then divide... this gives you a round about potency...
then if your recipe calls for 3/4 of a cup all you have to do is figure out how many tablespoons in a cup and reduce by 1/4 and you have potency...
I know I need one gram a day when smoking... so as long as my portion contains one gram im good...
how to make budder....
its pretty simple... I put butter on the stove... in a pyrex dish... wait for it to melt and reduce the heat so its barely boiling... more or less just hot enough to melt the butter... and use a butter with lots of fat
then I decarb my bud(this might need to be done first) it should almost turn to powder in your fingers... and I grind it up really good and dump it into my butter
I let that sit on the stove for 30 minutes.. just sitting in hot butter...
then I put my pyrex dish back in the fridge to solidify again... i let that rest overnight
the next day I re-heat my butter and strain the weed out of the butter using a potato press lined with cheesecloth and squeeze all the butter out of the weed...
I strain the butter back into its original container and put that back in the fridge...
once its hard I can use as I want knowing I need a tablespoon to get me lifted
I don't decarb.
Here is what Decarboxilation is.
the following is copied from cannabischris.com
When the cannabis plant is freshly
harvested, most of the THC found within
the resins on the buds and leaves, is still in
it’s non-psychoactive form called THCA.
THC(A) has little to no psychoactive effect
on humans when consumed. This means, if
you picked a fresh “bud” from a female
cannabis plant, and ate it, you would feel
very little to zero “high” or psychoactive
To get cannabis that is psychoactive when
consumed, the THC(A) must first be
converted into THC.
In order to convert THCA into the
psychoactive form we all love, called THC –
cannabis must first go through a process
called decarboxylation. This process
usually takes place naturally in the drying
and curing stage, but may also
be achieved when the material is brought
to a temperature of at least 122 degrees.
After about 15 minutes of 122-145 degree
temperatures, THC(A) will be converted to
active THC throughout the resin containing
areas of the plant.
Temperatures to note:
At 102 degrees, virtually all of the terpenes
found in the cannabis plant will begin to
evaporate off, along with most of the
smells produced by those terpenes. At this
point you should begin to smell a very-
strong cannabis aroma. Many terpenes are
lost at temperatures as low as in the high
At 122 degrees, THC(A) begins to lose it’s
carbon molecule during evaporation. This
converts the THC(A) into active THC, making
the material psychoactive and ready for
At 150 degrees, CBD begins to melt and
evaporate. Temperatures above 150 will
result in loss of CBD’s.
CBD’s, while non-psychoactive in nature,
are said to be responsible for many of the
medical effects of cannabis. They have been
shown to relieve convulsion, inflammation,
anxiety, and nausea, as well as inhibit
cancer cell growth.
Any preparation of cannabinoids being
used for an above condition, should not be
heated above 150 degrees during the
decarboxylation process, as you
will diminish the amount of CBDs in the
Decarboxylation rapidly takes place
at approximately 220 degrees, however; as
stated above with CBDs, different
cannabinoids have an evaporation point of
between 150 and 392 degrees. This means,
heating these constituents past their
evaporation point will cause them to
degrade, or to be lost completely into thin
THC starts to evaporate at approximately
360 degrees, and completely boils at 392
Meaning, that baking products like
“medibles” at a temperature above 350
degrees, may also destroy some of the
Therefore, it is my opinion that – the most
medically effective preparations are those
that have been made with either naturally
cured cannabis (3 weeks time or longer), or
those that have been decarboxylized at
temperatures between 122 and 149
degrees Fahrenheit as to keep all of the
cannabinoids and other beneficial
I make my budder with fully cured bud/trim, so it is not needed imo.
If I were to use fresh bud/trim, I would decarb.
Your method is good. You did not use water in your butter. You used the water as your heat and it didn't touch the water. You're ok there, but you do need to decarb your weed, especially if it's fairly fresh but can't hurt at any age. It activates the thc so that it is available to be absorbed by your body, like the flame does if you're smoking it. Put it in a 220 F oven for no more than 30 minutes, until it's crunchy dry. But you do need more weed in your butter. You were using 2 grams for a half cup of butter (half cup=1 stick). If you made 20 brownies or cookies, each would be 1/10th or 0.1 gram. You would probably need to eat 5 for a good buzz or make 5 big, big ones and eat 1.:D
Also, if you have a meat or candy thermometer, make sure the internal temp of the butter in the jar gets to at least 170F, but no more than 220F.

"For those looking for help this is what i do. First heat your material in oven for minimum of 30 mins (VERY IMPORTANT) Max temp is 240 f or 115 c. If you don't have accurate thermometer set to 100 c and go 45 mins. Grind up material into fine powder. Add couple pints of water to a pan with butter and powder and bring to boil. Hard boil for 20-25 mins stir continuously. Strain powder from water butter mix and allow to cool. Add to fridge, butter will float on top and go hard. Add butter to cake!" Thank you for sharing.

Basic Cannabutter Infusions > High Times
Learn how to make cannabutter the correct way, and enjoy properly activated pot-infused foods with minimal effort. It’s important to make sure the cannabis is fully decarboxylated, meaning a chemical reaction has occurred due to the action of time and temperature, converting THC acid, which isn’t psychoactive, into good ol’ THC, which certainly is psychoactive.
There’s a lot of legend and lore about how to correctly decarboxylate cannabis, involving quickly frying your cannabis at 293º for seven minutes, or simmering for up to 8 hours at very low temperatures, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Follow these instructions from The Official HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cookbook, and as long as the plant material reaches 250ºF for an hour, you will have very potent and tasty pot foods.

Cannabutter - The Stoner's Cookbook
Directions: Ok, this is the way to make cannabutter, to be used in your everyday cooking... Carefully bring the water to a boil, and add the butter. Once melted ...
Pot of water,
1 lb of Butter,
Half oz of weed.
As a guide, using half oz of weed (leaf or bud) per lb of butter and get back roughly 3/4 lb Canabutter.
Note: This recipe contains weed. Weed strength varies and there is no "standard" so quantities may not be given or be approximate. Please use your own judgement when measuring based on your knowledge of the weed you're using.
Ok, this is the way to make cannabutter, to be used in your everyday cooking...
Carefully bring the water to a boil, and add the butter. Once melted add your weed. Slowly boil off all the water in the butter. The secret is to get the mixture up over 300 degrees. This converts most of the THCA (which doesn't get you high) to THC which does get you high.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT LET IT GET OVER 350 DEGREES
Once the water has boiled off let the mixture simmer for 3-4 hours total.
Next, using a cheesecloth or similar (knee high stocking even!), strain out the spent plant matter, squeezing all the butter out of it, and put the liquid in the fridge.
A few hours later, the mixture is cool enough that the cannabutter has solidified on the surface. It looks kind of scummy, but its just enchanted butter.
Scoop it out and retain it in a bowl or a jar. Any remaining water can be thrown out.
Use the bud butter in any recipe that calls for butter.

So You Want To Make Some Cannabutter? > Food Republic
This is an easy, quick way to infuse cannabis into butter on your stove top. Be sure to use salted butter since it has a higher smoke point, and don’t leave your saucepan unattended! You can make this cannabutter relatively quickly, and use it in any of the recipes in the High Times cookbook.
Drizzle this cannabutter over freshly cooked pasta or popcorn for instant satisfaction. Reserve large batches in the fridge or freezer for use in recipes.
Level of Difficulty:
Note: For medical patients, I would recommend using two ounces of cannabis for each pound of butter, effectively making a double-strength cannabutter.
Servings: 1/2 cup -
1/2 cup salted butter;
1/4 ounce cannabis buds, finely ground.
Additional reading: This Woman Wrote The High Times Cookbook
Melt the butter on low heat in a saucepan. Add the ground buds, and simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, stirring frequently.
Strain the butter into a glass dish with a tight-fitting lid. Push the back of a spoon against the plant matter and smash it against the strainer to squeeze out every drop of butter available. When you’re done, discard the plant matter.
Use your cannabutter immediately, or refrigerate or freeze until it is time to use. You can easily scale this recipe up for larger batches of cannabutter. One pound of butter (4 sticks) can absorb 1 ounce of cannabis, but you may want to simmer for up to 60 minutes.
