The recipe for making your own weed butter at home

If none of the weed butter makers mentioned above tickle your fancy (or your pockets), the option for making weed butter the old-fashioned way is always there. The process is pretty simple, just like if you were making weed tea.

What you need to make weed butter at home:

  • Cannabis
  • Butter
  • Water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Funnel
  • A pot/saucepan
  • The following recipe

Step 1: Decarb your weed in the oven

The first step of any edible making process is to decarboxylate your cannabis. 

Decarbing your weed is the process of applying heat to it, which then activates the cannabinoids that make us feel things. When smoking flower, this process occurs with a flame, however when you’re cooking flower, it needs to happen in the oven. 

To decarb your weed, simply toss the buds on a cooking sheet then slide it in the oven at a temperature around 230 - 240 degrees Farenheit for between 20 and 40 minutes.

Step 2: Grind up the decarbed weed 

After decarbing your weed, you want to grind it up so it’s easier to stir into the butter you’ll make. 

Step 3: Melt butter and water in a pot

Add butter and water to a pot to make your weed butter. You can use 1 cup of each as a standard rule of thumb.

Butter melts/burns extremely quickly, which is why you add water, to help mitigate that process and consistency.

Step 4: Add the decarbed weed to the melted butter

Once your butter is melted up nicely, toss the ground cannabis into the pot. Lower the flame to a simmer to avoid burning the butter, as well as the cannabinoids. 

After stirring your ground up cannabis into your melted butter, lower the heat and let the concoction simmer for a couple of hours while the substances blend together. Stir occasionally throughout the process.

Step 5: Strain the cannabutter with a cheesecloth

Create a funnel with cheesecloth inside. Once the butter is done simmering, strain the cannabutter through your cheesecloth funnel into whatever receptacle your choice (I advise a jar or a small tupperware container).

Step 6: Refrigerate your weed butter

Put the jar/container/whatever into the refrigerator and after an hour or so, your weed butter should be ready to apply it to whatever food you’d like to become an infused edible at your leisure. 

That’s how you make weed butter by yourself, so now it’s easy to see why having a weed butter infusion maker is a MUCH quicker and efficient process.
