A Crockpot Cannabis Butter Recipe You'll Want to Share With All Your Friends
Infusing cannabis in to a butter or carrier oil is the first step to infusing sweet or savoury edibles and topical lotions/salves. You don’t need to have a fancy machine to make your own cannabutter at home, just a few simple ingredients. This recipe uses the mason jar in a slow cooker method, which is great for its simplicity, maintaining the terpene and cannabinoid profiles, as well as keeping the odour in your home to a minimum.
What You’ll Need
½ oz decarbed cannabis or AVB (already vaped bud)
1 cup unsalted butter
A mason jar
Start Low, Go Slow
This recipe will yield moderate potency depending on the THC% in your strain. To lower the potency simply use less cannabis in the recipe. Another way to control the potency is to use a 50/50 ratio of butter and cannabutter when cooking/baking.
Let’s Make Some Cannabutter!
Fill the crockpot halfway with water and set on high
Fill mason jar with butter and place in the crockpot to melt
While your butter is melting, use a coffee grinder to grind your decarbed cannabis into a fine powder
Add ground cannabis to melted butter and stir
Turn the crock pot down to low
Cover and simmer for 6-8 hours
Layer cheesecloth in your strainer, then place in bowl
Carefully remove the jar from the slow cooker and pour contents into the strainer
Use spoon to push butter through the cheesecloth, make sure to squeeze all remaining butter from cloth
Discard the cheesecloth and solids and allow butter to cool
Once cooled, your cannabutter is good for 2 months in the fridge, or 6 months in the freezer. Pro-tip: Freeze your cannabis butter in an ice cube tray for ready to use portions!
