Including baked goods, sauces, spreads, dips, casseroles, pasta dishes, etc.  The list goes far beyond brownies and cookies.  Dosing ranges widely.  Always start low and go slow. You don't want a recipe so strong that you are unable to fully enjoy your meal.  A little bit goes a long way.  Especially if you are using the butter in more than one dish for a meal.  Below you will find the basic cannabis butter recipe.  Scroll down further for more recipes made with marijuana. Enjoy!

How to Make Cannabutter

Directions for Crockpot

  1. Grind your cannabis coarsely with a hand grinder. (Tip: A coffee grinder will finely pulverize the flower and prevent effective straining of bad-tasting plant material.) In other words do not use a coffee grinder.
  2. Set your slow cooker to low, or somewhere around 160ºF. (Tip: Avoid exceeding 200ºF to prevent burning or wasting cannabinoids. You can also add a little water to help prevent scorching.)
  3. Add the butter and ground cannabis. Stir occasionally.
  4. After about 3 hours, turn off the crockpot and wait for the butter to cool.
  5. Strain and store as above. 


Cannabutter Dosing

Your butter’s potency depends on many factors. Depending on how strong the strain was and how long, and hot it was cooked.  Even the type of cannabis used (indica vs. sativa strains) can be a factor. To test the potency of your finished product, try spreading ¼ or ½ teaspoon on a snack and see how that dose affects you after an hour. Decrease or increase dose as desired. You can then use this personalized “standard” dose as a baseline for your recipes. Use the butter in sauces, spreads, baking, etc.  You can also use CBD bud to make cannabutter.
