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.


  1. 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.
  2. Add the cannabis and let simmer for 30 minutes or so until the butter has turned green.
  3. Pour the butter through a strainer to remove all the pieces of cannabis (cheesecloth works best).
  4. Chill in fridge until solid.
