How to make all-purpose cannabutter

In most baked goodies, butter is an omnipresent ingredient. And if you’re inviting cannabis into the party, this is where you make the necessary infusion.

For this, you’ll need a cup of butter and 7-10 grams of your preferred strain.

The very first step involves the decarboxylation of marijuana. Simply put, it’s the process of activating the plant’s compounds and cannabinoids by putting them under high heat.

To do this, spread out your buds evenly onto a baking sheet and place them into a preheated oven at 245ºF. Let it bake for up to 45 minutes. At the same time, melt the butter using a saucepan.

Once decarboxylation is done, grind up the weed until you’ve achieved a coarse consistency. You’ll then place them into the melted butter and allow the mixture to simmer under low heat 200ºF for up to three hours. Be sure to stir it occasionally.

The final step would be to strain the butter mixture then refrigerate it for future use. Then voila, you now have your very own cannabutter.

Edible Recipes You Can Try

Now, let’s get to the meat of the topic. As we mentioned in our intro, we’ll give you a few edible recipes to try out for yourself, and here they are.

Double Chocolate Space Cookies

Cookies are the ultimate treat for every person with a fat kid inside of them. And if you do it right, you can be guaranteed to experience heaven in every bite.

For this, we’re going with a double chocolate variation. Cannabis and chocolate have always been a match made in heaven, and this recipe is living proof of it.

What you’ll need:

  • A cup and a half of all-purpose flour
  • A quarter of a cup of cocoa
  • A cup of chocolate chips
  • Half a teaspoon of baking soda
  • A quarter teaspoon of salt
  • Half a cup of brown sugar
  • Half a cup of white sugar
  • Half a cup of cannabutter
  • Half a teaspoon of vanilla
  • A large egg

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a medium-sized bowl, pour in the butter and sugars and mix them all.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until everything is homogenous.
  • Take another medium bowl and pour in all the other dry ingredients: salt, cocoa, baking soda, flour. Mix them all.
  • Combine both the wet and dry ingredients and continue mixing. Next, add in the chocolate chips.
  • Now that you have your butter, divide it up into small balls using an ice cream scoop. Spread them out onto a baking sheet.
  • Place the baking sheet into the oven and let it bake for 15 minutes. After that’s done, allow the cookies to cool for up to five minutes before digging in.

Cannabutter weed gummies

The great thing about having some cannabutter around is that you can also use it to make some gummies. It’s a simple recipe that may take a long four hours to complete, but what you get is sheer satisfaction afterward.

What you’ll need:

  • A cup and a half of fruit juice (the flavor will depend on your preference)
  • Four tablespoons of gelatin
  • Three tablespoons of raw honey

  • Carefully place the mixture into your silicone molds and refrigerate for up to four hours. Once it’s solidified, serve and enjoy.

Cannabis-infused tea

These aren’t technically edibles, but it adds some variety to this list. And if you want more of a body high, cannabis-infused teas are the way to go.

For this one, we’re going with chamomile tea with a spike of THC. And it’s really simple.

What you’ll need:

  • Two teaspoons of ground and decarboxylated cannabis buds
  • Two teaspoons of dried chamomile
