Easiest Weed Butter Method

 

Weed butterThe process of making weed butter begins with decarboxylation or activating the THC in the cannabis. This is important because it allows the THC to bind to the fat in the butter, making it more potent. To decarboxylate your cannabis, preheat the oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit and spread your ground cannabis on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Make sure you keep a close eye on the cannabis because it can burn or over cook very easily. Some ovens are hotter than others so we recommend checking every 5 – 10 minutes. Once your cannabis is finished decarboxylating, it will be light brown in color and smell slightly toasted.

Next, it’s time to start cooking the butter. Combine the butter and water in a saucepan over low heat. Stir frequently until the butter has melted completely. Add the decarboxylated cannabis to the mixture and continue to stir. The key here is to maintain a low temperature; you don’t want the mixture to boil. Boiling will cause the THC to evaporate, so it’s important to keep an eye on the temperature and stir often.

After about 30 minutes, the butter should be green in color and have a strong cannabis smell. At this point, it’s time to strain the mixture. Place a cheesecloth or coffee filter over a bowl or food storage container. Slowly pour the mixture through the cheesecloth, letting it strain into the container. Once all of the butter has been strained, you can discard the leftover cannabis flower.

Now you’re ready to enjoy your weed butter. Try adding your weed butter to brownies, cookies, or other meals. You can make amazing edibles at home!
