If you are going to be baking with marijuana, you need to know how to make cannabutter. As we mentioned before in our Cinco de Mayo article, in order to activate the THC in marijuana to be able to get high from eating it you need alcohol or fat. Once you follow our steps below, you can use your butter just as you would in any recipe. You could melt it over pasta, put it in any baked good, put it on toast, or make a nice sauce for a steak.
So, let’s get stared. You are going to need a pot, a strainer, a stove, water, butter, and marijuana. We made sure to keep the instructions easy because more likely than not you’re stoned and can’t follow detailed instructions nor will you have the patience to read through them all.
1. Take the pot and place it on the stove. Pour enough water into the pot so that it is an inch deep, more is unnecessary, less is alright, you just need some water.
2. Bring the water to a boil. Then melt the butter by placing it in the water.
***Important*** Use one stick of butter for every quarter ounce of marijuana that you intend to use.
3. Once the butter is fully melted, put your marijuana in the pot. Make sure it is ground up or broken up like you we’re going to use it in a joint or a blunt. You don’t want it to be too small because you want to filter out the plant matter once it is all said and done.
4. Turn down the heat slightly, you want the mixture to simmer but not fully boil. You should let the mixture sit like this for 3 hours at a minimum, but longer is better. Then turn off the heat and take the mixture off the stove.
5. Pour the mixture through a strainer and into another container. The butter will solidify on the top, you can place the container in the freezer to speed up this process. Once the butter has solidified, pour out the water, and you’re done.
6. Lastly, use the butter and get high.
