8 Steps To Prepare Your Cannabutter

Now that you have all the ingredients you need to make the best cannabis butter you will ever taste, all you have to do is follow the steps below and you will have the perfect cannabis butter to make desserts or use with any other food you want.

  1. The first step is to break up the buds or leaves, for this you can use a grinder to get a perfect result or do it with your hands or a knife if you don’t have a good grinder.
  2. Put the cannabis material (buds or leaves) in a container with water and place it on a low heat, but do not let the water boil, otherwise the buds will lose their THC, CBD and other cannabinoids and the cannabis butter will have no effect.
  3. Stir the mixture constantly for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, to prevent the plant material from burning.
  4. Add the butter to the warming container with your shredded cannabis buds and stir for about 30 minutes until the butter is well mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Once you notice that the mixture is homogeneous, you should pass it through a sieve to separate the vegetable matter from the liquid solution.
  6. Once you have your mixture strained and free of vegetable matter, place it in a container and then put it in the refrigerator until the butter becomes solid.
  7. Once the marijuana butter has solidified, the water will separate from the butter. Remove the water and return the butter to the refrigerator.
  8. That’s it! If you have followed our steps to the letter you should have a 10/10 cannabis butter, now you can use it as an ingredient in other more complex recipes such as cakes, crepes and even smoothies.


As you can see, all you need to do to make cannabis butter is follow these super simple steps. When cooking with cannabutter you can add flavour and delicious effects to your dishes. Remember that heat removes the potency of THC, so we recommend you use your cannabutter in cold recipes and baking, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also use it to prepare hot dishes.
