grind cannabis finely (1st step)
Grind the weed in a food processor or chopper. Make sure to get it ground into a powder because the next step about cooking weed butter depends on how finely the weed is ground.

Simmer the weed butter (2nd step)
butter that is cooked with weed is used in everyday food dishes and is much healthier than smoking cannabis. Simply wrap the powdered cannabis in a cheesecloth and let simmer inside jar with 4 sticks of butter. Now sit back and smoke a fat joint of some homegrown and wait for 4 hours while enjoying the weed butter fragrance coming from the cannabutter on the stove.

puff, puff, pass – the butter to the cooling stage

    I tried this method today, and I was mostly pleased with the results. For some reason, the melted cannabutter wouldn’t strain out through the coffee filter. After fidgeting with it for awhile, I decided to just take the weed pouch out and dump out the rest of the cannabutter and cheesecloth (which was organic, which may have played a factor) out into the plastic-ware I was using.

    The organic cheesecloth, while I thought might cause problems despite claims it was edible, actually separated out from the cannabutter in the fridge, leaving a strange brown liquid with bits of cheesecloth in it unfrozen under the hardened cannabutter.

    Maybe I’m just dumb for not being able to strain butter, but it seemed useful to note that the butter separated from the cheesecloth liquid stuff and looks totally fine, so that might be easier for people. Just wanted your thoughts, thanks for the recipe.

  • left at the low setting throughout

  • matt

    Did you leave the setting on your stove at 2 throughout or did you increase at all?

  • that varies on the person, the persons weight, tolerance levels etc etc.. also depends on the strain/quality of the herb used.
