Cooking With Cannabis: Cannabutter
Converting Your Dried Cannabis Into Cannabutter
CannaButter – the easiest way to infuse your medication into your daily routine. This is an easy recipe to help stay medicated during your day.
1 lb butter (you may use a butter alternative)
1/2 oz finely ground cannabis
** Please keep track of how much dry cannabis is equivalent to the butter to ensure you are following the daily limits imposed by your physician’s prescription.
- Melt the butter on VERY LOW heat in a saucepan until it’s simmering. Overheating will turn the butter black and add a burnt flavour.
- Add the cannabis and let simmer for 30 minutes or so until the butter has turned green.
- Pour the butter through a strainer to remove all the pieces of cannabis (cheesecloth works best).
- Chill in fridge until solid.
