This recipe is best enjoyed immediately, but if you have extra marijuana butter, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or according to the expiration date on the butter you used.
If you won't consume your cannabutter within three weeks, it is a good idea to freeze the finished product. Learn more about how to store edibles here.
If you want to prep the board ahead of time, assemble and cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
Remove from the refrigerator for up to one hour before serving to let the butter soften.
Types of Cannabis Butter
The addition of cannabutter truly is the best part of this recipe.
The first step is to choose which option or simple recipe you want to start with first.
- Buy my premium cannabutter - with both CBD and THC. Each teaspoon contains 12.5mg of CBD and 12.5mg of THC, making dosing easy. This is the finest cannabutter that can be shipped directly to your door!
- Make your own infused butter - with regular with your choice of salted or unsalted butter, clarified butter, or ghee.
There are many different methods to choose from; find one that works best for you.
In most cases, you will still need basic equipment like a mason jar and low heat source to create a water bath.
Here are a few cooking processes to choose from:
Other Cannabis Additives
Even if you do not have cannabutter, there are many different ways you could infuse a butter board with cannabis.
Here are just a few ideas:
How to Dose
It is essential to dose your cannabutter and your cannabutter board correctly. There are two things you should keep in mind:
- How many servings will the board provide
- How strong is the cannabutter you are using
Remember, you want a decent amount of the butter board covered in butter, but you do not want to consume more than what is comfortable.
If your cannabutter is too strong, mix it with your desired amount of regular butter.
When making your cannabutter, how many cannabis buds you add will determine the potency.
If you use an ounce of cannabis to pound butter, you will likely have a strong end product with a high mg THC.
If you are unsure how much weed to start with, you can use this flower-to-oil ratio guide.
In most cases, just a few grams is a good place to start in small batches.
Start with this dosing guide if you're unsure how much THC to consume.
You can then use the edible dosage calculator to estimate your final product's strength.
If your cannabutter is too weak, follow these steps to re-infuse.
Notes and Expert Tips
- To make your weed butter, you must decarb the cannabis flower before the infusion. You can do this in an oven or Instant pot.
- Do not use a microwave to soften the cannabutter. The unpredictable high heat from a microwave can ruin your edible recipes.
- Don't forget you can save your leftover plant matter from the infusion process to use in other marijuana edibles.
- This is the perfect dish for social get-togethers and holiday parties. Check this board out as a part of my Thanksgiving menu.
- Of course, keep this dish out of reach of children. Label, if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Butter boards can be brand new to even the most seasoned cannabis consumer, so here are some of the most common FAQs I get asked about this recipe from my Well With Cannabis Community.
No, you need an option that will stay solid at room temperature. Options like vegetable oil or MCT oil will make a runny mess.
I totally understand; cannabutter could stain a white marble cutting board. Simply place a piece of parchment paper between the board and the butter.
That's OK! Color is just an indicator of how much chlorophyll has been infused into your final product. It is not an indicator of potency. To prevent the green taste and color, be sure to skip the grinding process before infusing.
