Cannabis Butter Recipe

To cook with cannabis there is one basic ingredient you need: Cannabis butter.  This is very easily made.

In a medium pan bring a quart of water to a rolling boil on the stove. Make sure that the cannabis is always slightly above the bottom of the pan.

When the water is boiling place the butter in the pan and allow it to melt completely. Use 4 sticks of butter to every ounce of cannabis.

Once the butter has melted you can add the cannabis. Now turn the heat down low and let simmer for approximately three hours. Check regularly that it is only boiling. You can tell it’s done when the top of the mix turns from really watery to glossy and thick.

While the cannabis butter is cooking set up the bowl to hold the finished product. You can use a heatproof bowl or a plastic food container. Place a double layer of cheesecloth over the top, and secure it with elastic or string.

Strain the cannabis butter slowly and carefully over the bowl. When the saucepan is empty untie the elastic and pick up the cheesecloth from all four sides and squeeze out all of the remaining butter.

Allow the cannabis butter to cool for about an hour. Put it in the fridge until the butter has risen to the top layer and is solid. This solid layer is what you will be using.

Run a knife around the edge and lift the butter off. Place upside down on your work surface and scrape off any of the cooking water. Now you are all done.
