How to make CannaButter

Published by Jan




What you will need:

2-3 ounces of sifted and ground bud trimmings
One ½ lbs. (6 cubes) unsalted butter
Crock pot with several settings (warm, low, hot)
Storage container (Tupperware is good)
Two large rubber bands
Grinder or a blender

Turn crock-pot on to lowest setting.  Add butter to pot.  Add trimmings and stir well.  Put the lid on crock-pot and set a timer for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, stir it again really well.  If too dry, add 2 more cubes of unsalted butter.  Let it cook for another 15 minutes.  Never overcook!  Never let it get too hot!  Never boil!  It is done!
Pour it through cheesecloth into a bowl.  You should fasten the cheesecloth around the bowl using those rubber bands I told you you needed.  Let it cool some.  Pour it into your container and put it into your freezer.  It will keep well for up to 6 months in the freezer.  Just take out what you need for your particular recipe and return the rest to your freezer.
I often half the amount of cannabutter called for in the recipe—replacing it with plain butter.  This recipe always gives me a potent (strong) cannabutter.

I heard that activating the cannabis in a warm (175-200F) oven first will increase the assimilation into the butter...Do you have any experience with this?

This is how i make my butter but i let my butter sit in the crock pot longer (not with any heat) I warm the butter and cool it then warm it and so on. It takes me llike a day to get the finished product but boy is it STRONG.

is this a good recipe if using extra virgin coconut oil?
Sunday, Jun 2 2013 at 8:51a

intensely followed a recipe I found on youtube.  1 cup of lemon juice, 2 cups of extra virgin olive oil and two cups of water, grind the cannabis small,  and add to the above.  Cook on low for about 10 minutes, place in a pressure canner for 30 minutes at 15 lbs pressure. Let cool and strain. The recipe called for a grape press but I don't have one so I used cheese cloth and squeezed it with rubber gloves on.  Placed the strained oil in a pan and placed it in a freezer for about 8 hours.  It layered, the water was at the bottom and the oil at the top. pealed off the oil with a spoon, and some slid on the ice so I could remove bigger sections at a time.   It melts at room temp fairly quick.

So I tried it taking a 1/2 CC first.  It seemed like i felt something but was not sure.  Next day I tried 1 CC and again I thought I felt something.  Then I got to wondering if it got enough heat.  So I placed two tablespoons in a old tuna can with some water put in an oven preheated at 380 degrees.  Once I saw the water steaming and the oil bubbling, I took it out and let it cool, poured it in a clear glass bowl and froze it again. Pealed it off and consumed 2CC.  I was stoned intensely for about 3 hours and it seemed to linger all day.  Question is I need it for the treating of MDS a form of pre-leukemia not for me but for someone else. I need the CBD intact.  I have read THC Delta 9 has cancer healing properties, just like CBD is this true?  I have not smoked it for over 20 years.  So this is the first time I have been high since then.   So maybe this might be why it seemed more intense,  I have read many studies on THC and  CBD on Pubmed  and it seems the terms are used interchangeably is this correct thinking?

UPDATE! I use trimmings or bud, not the big water leaves, which are far less potent. Take the material you will use, put it on a cookie sheet or whatever, peheat your oven for 160 degrees, put the pot in the oven for 15 minutes, remove and grind into the smallest form possible. Turn crock-pot on to lowest setting, add butter, let it melt, add trimmings and stir well. Put the lid on crock-pot and set a timer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, stir it again really well, if too dry, add 2 more cubes of unsalted butter and either way, let it cook for another 15 minutes. Put the canna-butter into a bowl. Fasten the cheesecloth around the bowl using rubber bands or tape, let it cool a bit, then strain and squeeze the substance through the cheesecloth into a container, and put it to use, or into your freezer. It will keep well for up to 6 months in the freezer. Just take out what you need for a particular recipe and return the rest to the freezer. I often use only half the amount of cannabutter called for in the recipe—replacing it with plain butter. Warning! Never overcook or let it get too hot and never ever boil! If you do, you will likely burn up the beneficial THC, CBD, ect… plus, the overcooked remains of the day are mainly derivates of carbon that are toxic and bad for your brain and your health. Think of it like this: If you are a meat eater, you like steak from rare to well done, but never burnt through and through… and if you were to eat it burnt to a crisp, how do you think you would feel shortly thereafter: sick, I assure you...

I know this post is old but I read somewhere that there is a way to prepare the cannibis first so that it becomes cbn,which is more sedative. Anyone know how to do this. I need it more for sleep and anxiety.
