What you need for making cannabis butter?
– Butter (24 sticks)
– Cannabis (broken-up or ground; 2-3 ounces)
– Large pot
– Big bowl
– Containers for storing the cannabutter
Step 1. Take butter and place it into a cooking pot. Put it over medium heat and let the butter melt a bit before adding the broken-up cannabis.
Step 2. Add the broken-up cannabis to the half-melted butter. Keep stirring the butter and ground cannabis until the butter is absolutely melted.
Step 3. At this stage, the process of decarboxylation begins. Continue to stir the mixture until you see a white foam on the surface. It signalizes the start of the decarboxylation process, when the THC activates and starts to provide effects on the human body and mind. The same thing happens not only when cannabis is heated, but also when you burn or vaporize it. Do not hurry when making cannabutter, as you can spoil everything. It is important to stay calm and stir the mixture continuously without any aggression. As soon as you smell the cannabis odor, then it is time for the next step.
Step 4. Turn the heat to the minimum and simmer the mixture for the next three hours. Do not forget to stir it occasionally. In three hours, turn the heat off and let the mixture cool down before the next step.
Step 5. Use cheesecloth to strain the mixture.
Step 6. Separate the strained mixture into several containers and place them into the refrigerator so that the butter can become solid. As soon as the cannabutter becomes bright green, it is ready for use.
