Cannabutter Recipe

Every cannabis cook should start with Cannabutter. Besides, you can use it with everything! Cannabutter and jelly sandwiches anyone?

Ingredients:

  • 450 grams (about 1 pound) butter
  • 25 grams (about 1 ounce) quality buds or hash OR 50 grams (about 2 ounces) ground leaves

Directions:

cannabutter 300x225 Cannabutter RecipeSlowly melt the butter in a pan. Grind your bud into a fine powder, being careful to sift out any stems. Gently stir the powdered cannabis into the melted butter. The mixture should become a remarkably dark emerald green. If using hash, warm it in a small pan or spoon over low heat (microwaving for 5-10 seconds on half-power also works) until it can be gently crumbled into the melted butter.

Without allowing it to burn (this means no smoke breaks), leave the Cannabutter on low heat for up to a half-our, stirring diligently. Once done, pour the Cannabutter through a fine strainer and into a large jug. Keep in mind, the strained bits can be saved and used to make a drink or other edibles.

The best method for storing the Cannabutter is to place it in several glass jars and to then refrigerate. Once the Cannabutter has hardened, add a touch of water to the jars. This will help it to keep a bit longer.

Additional Ingredients:

You can spice up your Cannabutter in any number of ways, depending on what you’ll be cooking with it primarily. Here are some combinations we’ve enjoyed:

  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pesto sauce
  • thyme, rosemary, oregano and/or chives
  • 1/2 – tablespoon finely grated orange and lemon peel with 1/2 tablespoon of juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1/2 tablespoon of strong black coffee (coffee butter)

    I’m curious about the weights you have listed in this recipe – an ounce is 28 grams, if you’ve been buying 25 gram ounces you’ve been missing out! When I make butter I use the ratios of 1 ounce to a pound which works out as 28 grams to 454 grams. Admittedly the extra 4 grams of butter probably doesn’t matter :)

      Thanks Debbie. We were simply rounding up for the benefit of our readers. I doubt most of them would mind an extra three grams in their cannabutter. :) Sorry for the confusion.

      We’re talking about cannabutter, not a drug deal. However, I’m sure you’ll agree, 25 grams is roughly an ounce and we suggest you use anywhere between 25 and 30 grams, depending on how potent you want your cannabutter. Our readers aren’t going to weigh out 28.3 grams or .882 ounces (25 grams) for their cannabutter.
