Cannabutter is an absolute essential for making weed edibles. Once you cook up a large batch, you can keep it in the fridge and add it to any dish that calls for normal butter. Cannabutter will keep its original potency over time! Whip up weed brownies after work, drizzle over pancakes for the ultimate wake and bake, or add it to your favorite pasta dish to give it a kick. For more edible recipe ideas, page through a cannabis cookbook.
If you were wondering how to make cannabutter at home, it is much easier than it sounds and requires just a few ingredients and materials. If you want to do the least amount of work possible, have less to clean up, and reduce the weed smell in your house, opt for cooking your cannabutter in an Instant Pot or slow cooker. Instant Pots are famous for being able to cook essentially anything and that includes making edibles! If you have even just a little bit of cooking knowledge (beyond warming up ramen in the microwave), then you will have no problem making DIY cannabutter at home.
There are many ways to make cannabis infused butter or oil. After decarbing your dry herb, the only step left is to slowly infuse the two ingredients together. The most common method is cooking it on the stovetop, but it is also possible to use an Instant Pot or an easy butter maker that is designed specifically for cooking cannabutter.
Ingredients and materials:
There are two ways you can do this. If you decarb the traditional way using the oven, remember that your home will smell strongly of marijuana until it is aired out completely. If you choose the Instant Pot decarb method, use a brand new mason jar to reduce the chance of the glass shattering (this happens from time to time and you will not be able to save your bud).
It doesn’t matter if you’re cooking on the stovetop or using our Instant Pot cannabutter recipe, proper infusing takes a long time (though there are shortcuts if you don’t have the time). Just like when using a smoker, cooking a Thanksgiving turkey, or simmering a stew, you’ll want to set it at a low temperature and cook it for as long as possible to get the most out of your bud. This is usually around three hours. When making Instant Pot Cannabutter, you can just set it and forget it, which makes it an easy process.
If you prefer to smoke your marijuana, pick up a dab rig, mini bong, glass pipe, herb grinder, or rolling papers at our online headshop.
