CannaButter

There are thousands of recipes for extracting the THC out of Marijuana using butter. I find that this recipe is pretty much fool-proof (& stoner-proof). Good Luck & make sure to tell us how it goes!

Step by step recipe with photos after the jump…

What you need:

  • 1 pound butter (4 sticks)
  • 1 ounce Marijuana
  • Spatula or spoon
  • Coffee grinder (optional)
  • Double broiler*
  • cheese cloth**
  1. Fill bottom pan of the double broiler with water, leaving about an inch of space between the water and the top pan.
  2. Melt butter over low heat.
  3. While the butter is melting, prepare the Marijuana by grinding it with a coffee grinder for a few seconds until it is
  4. just about powder. (If you don’t have a coffee grinder, make sure your Marijuana is as finely ground as possible.)
  5. When butter is melted, add the ground Marijuana and stir in completely.
  6. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, for at least 2 hours.
    The longer it simmers, the more THC is absorbed by the butter. I usually simmer my butter for 6-8 hours.
  7. Strain the butter using a cheese cloth.
  8. Store your butter in the refrigerator or freezer.
    I like to split up the butter by measuring out 1/4 cups and storing them separately. (Most recipes call for 1/4 cup of butter.)

*You can create a double boiler by using a heat proof glass (pyrex) or metal bowl over a saucepan filled with water. When improvising a double boiler, it is very important to make sure that the bowl does not touch the bottom of the saucepan, or the heat from the stove will burn the Marijuana.
