Prepare a  Water Bath

1

Fill a crockpot with warm water. Place a digital thermometer in the water and set the crockpot to high heat. When a temperature of around 185°F is reached, turn the heat to low.

NEXT STEP

Decarboxylate  Your Flower

2

While the water bath is heating up, measure, and decarb your cannabis flower by baking it in an oven set to 240° F for 40 minutes. Visit our site for a full  decarboxylation tutorial.

NEXT STEP

Combine the Flower and Butter

3

Divide the decarbed cannabis flower and desired amount of butter between two mason jars. Wipe the rim of the jars with a clean towel and place the lid on, tighten to finger-tip tightness.

NEXT STEP

Place Jar In The Water Bath

4

Carefully place the jars into the water bath, place the lid on the crockpot, and cook for 2- 4 hours. You want to maintain a temperature of around 185°F the entire time.

NEXT STEP

Strain The Cooked Cannabutter

5

Prepare a straining area with new, clean mason jars and a strainer, paper filter, or cheesecloth. Pour the contents of the mason jar through the strainer to separate the plant-matter from the butter.

NEXT STEP

Refrigerate The  Cannabutter

6

Add the strained butter to whatever jar you would like to store it in. You can also use butter molds here if desired. Place the container in the refrigerator and allow it to cool completely.

NEXT STEP

Strain Remaining Milk Solids

7

During refrigeration, the infused butter will harden and solidify. Remove the solid block of butter and drain the remaining liquid which is the unwanted, leftover water and milk solids.

NEXT STEP

Enjoy Your Cannabutter

8

Your cannabis butter is ready to enjoy! Store this in the refrigerator according to the expiration date on the butter you used, or store for even longer in the freezer. Check out the next slide for recipe ideas.
