How to make cannabutter from weed buds
- a big pan
- cheesecloth or strainer
- a plastic lid closed container
- 2 sticks of fat butter (250g)
- 15 g of weed buds
-Put 3 cups of water into the pan (make sure the weed will float a few inches above the bottom of the pan), bring to boiling point.
-When the water starts boiling, add the butter and stir until it becomes homogeneous, bring down the heat to minimum power making sure to stir from time to time.
-Crush the weed buds and add them into the pan on top of the melted butter. Stir until homogeneous and let it simmer until the water on top becomes thick and glossy (this should take from 30 minutes up to 3 hours - depending on how low your simmering temperature is).
-Once the mix turned thick and glossy, turn off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes.
-Put a piece of cheesecloth folded in two or a strainer on top of the plastic container and slowly poor the composition into the bowl. When done, make sure to squeeze really well the cheesecloth so all the THC will reach into the plastic container.
-Now carefully place it into the freezer for a few hours.(the water will lay on the bottom of the bowl, while the butter should remain on top). Make sure to check if the butter is solid before removing it from the plastic container.
For proper long time storage, keep the weed butter frozen at all time.
