    • 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.
