Marijuana butter, magical butter, butterjuana or commonly called cannabutter, is a butter-based mixture infused with cannabinoids. Cannabinoids would not be activated without using heat, especially THC which is fat soluble. Since THC is gently cooked for a period of time with butter, its effect is more potent compared to just burning it. Those who are under medical marijuana treatment prefer using cannabutter as a means of intake.
Why Buy When You Can D.I.Y?
In making marijuana butter, it is not advisable to produce a weak cannabutter – you will feel fooled and ripped-off once you try your weak butterjuana. It’s actually easy and quick to make, and also functional, plus it could be used on different recipes.
The ingredients you will need are 1/4 ounce cannabis buds, finely ground and 1/2 cup (one stick) salted butter (it is good to use salted butter because it has a higher smoke point). This measurement could produce ½ cup of cannabutter. You could adjust the amount of buds if you want an even stronger mixture.
For the equipment you would need a grinder, medium saucepan, wooden ladle, spoon, metal strainer and container (with a tight fitting lid).
The first step is to finely grind your marijuana, finer than the ones you use in smoking (preferably in powder form), then slowly melt the butter in your pan in low heat (use low heat so you won’t burn the butter and break the THC particles when you are cooking it). Next, add the ground buds to the melted butter a little bit at a time and stir in between, then simmer it in low heat for 45 minutes while stirring it from time to time. When the butter is cooked and THC is activated, you can strain your butter and pour it in a container. Do not forget to press the filtered buds with spoon in order to release the remaining mixture. Voila! You now have your own marijuana butter in the comfort of your own kitchen!
