This easy homemade kief butter guide will show you how to make a super potent cannabutter that tastes absolutely amazing! You will find step-by-step instructions for dosing, decarbing, infusing, and more!
Gather the ingredients and equipment and preheat the oven to 240° F.
Using a digital scale, weigh the kief to your desired weight into an oven-safe container with a lid, like a mason jar.
Place the jar in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes for THC-dominant flower or 60-65 minutes for CBD-dominant flower.
While the jar is cooling, prepare a water bath. Fill a saucepan 1/2 way with water and place over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to low heat to simmer.
After the decarb cooking correct time, remove the jar from the oven.
When the mason jar is cool enough to handle, remove the lid, and put in your stick of butter or amount of oil. Reattach the lid.
Place the mason jar in the water bath and allow the butter to start to melt.
Once the butter and kief have completely melted, allow it to simmer for 5 minutes. If cook enough to handle, shake gently a few times.
Remove the jar from the hot water bath. You can allow the butter to harden as is, or you can "clarify" the butter by straining the white foam from the butter before allowing it to solidify.
Pour the butter into silicone molds and individual portion-sized trays, or leave it as-is in the container.
Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight to allow the butter to harden.
Enjoy your kief butter in your morning coffee, on toast, or in all of your favorite baked goods.
Straining Note: Keeping the plant matter in the melted butter is the best way to get the most potency and final result. If you feel you have to strain, you will want to increase your infusion time to 2 hours and then use a coffee filter or other fine tool to strain.
