Anna Wilcox from Leafly takes us through 2 easy methods for making cannabutter (cannabis-infused butter).
“Cannabutter is one of the simplest and most common ways to make medicated foods, yet making infused butter properly can be a little bit tricky. In order for THC to properly decarboxylate—change from its acid form to its psychoactive form—the cannabis needs to be heated at low temperatures over long periods of time” (Wilcox, n.d.).
Anna recommends simmering your cannabis either on the stove or in a slow cooker in the temperature range of 200F to 250F for a long period of time. “This will ensure that your cannabis does not become too hot too quickly and burn off active cannabinoids” (Wilcox, n.d.).
- 1 lb unsalted butter
- 1 cup water (add more water at any time if needed)
- 1 ounce of ground cannabis flower
