To successfully infuse marijuana into an edible, it needs a carrier agent like butter or oil. Making this part is the first step.
Incorporate cannabutter into your baked goods for a sugary April 20 treat, spread it on toast, or use it in your cooking.
- 1 cup ground cannabis (decarboxylated)
- 1 cup water
- 2 sticks of unsalted butter
Step 1: Place the butter in a saucepan and melt it over low heat on the stove.
Step 2: Add the cup of water and gently stir.
Step 3: Sprinkle in the decarbed ground cannabis and allow the blend to simmer for approximately 3 hours. Keep the heat between 160–190*F and stir occasionally.
Step 4: After the allotted time, strain the mixture using a cheesecloth. Resist the urge to squeeze as the plant matter may give the end product a bitter taste. Discard the debris left on the cloth.
Step 5: Place the butter in a container and refrigerate it overnight. Then, your cannabutter is ready to use in food from your infused dinner menu.

Step 2: Add the cannabis and gently stir the ingredients to combine.
Step 3: Seal the jar and place it in a crock pot filled with lukewarm water.
