Cannabutter - The best way IMO
    #4778 - 04/21/08 11:19 AM (8 years, 7 months ago)

Use about 2 cups unsalted butter per half oz. of weed.

- Melt butter on medium heat in a medium sized sauce pan

- Add enough water to fill pan 2/3 full of the butter/water

- Add ground up cheeba and stir

- Lower heat until the butter/water is simmering

- Let it simmer for 3 hours while stirring every 10-15 mins... you may need to add more water if it gets low

- After 3 hours remove from heat and let cool slightly

- Strain through cotton cloth or t-shirt into a bowl while still hot but cool enough to handle

- Cover and cool in the fridge until the butter hardens on top of the water

- Remove the butter and pat the water off w/ a paper towel.

You should now have some extremely potent butter with no plant material to use in whatever recipe you desire.  The original 2 cups of butter ends up being about 1.5 cups

I find that using 1 cup of the cannabutter to 24 treats works well.  1 treat is a mild high, 2 will give you a good high for hours... 10 will keep you high until the next day :crazy2:

Thanks for the tips. Have you ever tried using crisco shortening for larger batches of baked goods? I want to make a large batch of cannabutter, and think shortening would be ideal for this, because of its use in bakeries/restaurants.

its a lipid so it should technically do fine, as long as you melt it down the thc should bind too it, if your planning on shortening i'd suggest snickerdoodles, they are, in my opinion, the best shortening cook in this heavenly world

Nice write up. I myself start off simmering water in a double boiler and then adding the need amount of bud. I stir this together and then cover the pot to help keep the heat and smell contained letting it sit for about 1-2 hours stirring occasionally. After this time I have the need amount of butter usual 1 ounce of grade B swag to ½ cup of butter. I let this simmer for 4-6 hours and stir often. After this time I strain into a bowl and press the bud to extract all the last of the liquid. Let this sit over night and then chill in the frig for the next day. This mixture will separate and have 3 layers. The upper layer will be harder and the second will be creamy. These are the two layers used for potency and not so much of the herbal taste like for cookies. The third layer is mostly unevaporated water and plant sugars or pigments with enough butter particles to make it worth cooking some dishes that call for added flavor like pastas.

very nice writeup smalltime!

is there a reason you use unsalted butter or just preference? i have always used standard butter with great success following your instructions, but i don't grind any of the trim & popcorn buds that go into the pot.

IMO this is alot of extra work that is not needed. also your not actually suposed to use butter when making "cannabutter" because butter evaporates when it is being cooked on the stove.

You should be using vegetable oil instead. It doesn't evaporate and you don't need to add water or anything to it. Most if not all pre made brownie mixes call for vegetable oil and not butter as well.

just pre heat how ever much oil u want to use on the stove, grind up ur budz, then add the bud. Once its ready u don't even have to let it cool for 3 hours or whatever, just throw it in a bowl with brownie mix, mix it up and put mix in pan and bake.

if u wanna waste ur bud on butter that evaporates be my guest but u really should consider using oil instead.

You don't really know what your talking about. Butter for the win!
- every baked good tastes best with butter/margarin/shortening, veg oil is crap for cooking baked goods. any real cook will agree.
- butter does not "evaporate" when being cooked on the stove, not sure where you got this information, it is wrong.
- yes it is a little more work/prep but worth it. better final product overall.

i could go on but i just wanted to get the real info out there.
