Although you will eventually find the recipe that suits your needs, it is very difficult to be consistent with your cannabis butter when making it at home using kitchen utensils. A good ratio of medium strength cannabutter is 4:1 butter to cannabis. The basic process is as follows:
Step 1: You will need to decarboxylate your cannabis first. Place your cannabis in an oven for about 40 minutes to an hour at 100 degrees Celsius. Increasing or decreasing the temperature will either speed up or slow down the process. Once the cannabis is brown/grey it has decarboxylated enough.
Step 2: Melt the butter in a pan, stirring continuously. Add and stir in your decarboxylated cannabis
Step 3: You can leave the cannabis to simmer for a few hours ( 2-3 hours ), stirring occasionally. Once the butter has thickened and glossy, you will know it is ready.
Step 4: Remove from the stove top, sieving it or use cheesecloth to strain the HOT melted butter into another bowl. Let it cool. There may be a brown/blackish residue at the bottom that you can scrape off. Place your cannabutter in a plastic container and store in the fridge for a longer life.
