How To Make THC Butter:
The steps in this process are pretty simple, but here is a step-by-step breakdown of how to make THC butter, just incase you are already high as a kite.
Make THC butter like a pro with this easy 7-step process!
1.To extract THC from cannabis you must process it through decarboxylation. To decarb your plant material, preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Grind all of your flowers, and place every piece of the plant material (NOT seeds) on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 250 degrees for 40 minutes – stopping to turn the plant material every 10 minutes or so. This will make the cannabis a dry crumbly texture.
2.In a medium to large saucepan, bring a quart of water to a boil on your stovetop. See that the plant material is floating about 2 inches from the bottom of the pan to ensure it does not burn. When the water can maintain a rolling boil, place the butter in the pan and allow it to melt. I prefer to use organic butter.
NOTE: Use 4 full sticks of butter for every ounce of marijuana plant material. If you want to reduce this recipe, use ½ ounce of plant material for every 2 sticks of butter and so on.
3.When you have melted the butter, add in the marijuana plant material. Once you added the weed into the hot butter, you must stir immediately. Then lower the temperature setting to low. Continuing to stir as the marijuana material cooks on the lowest setting. Once the temperature of the butter has dropped, you can allow it to simmer for up to three hours.
4.While the butter cooks, you can prepare a glass bowl to contain the butter as you strain out the plant material. Place the glass container on the table beside your stove top and cover the top with cheesecloth, securing it with an elastic, or rubber band.
5.When you have secured the bowl, take the warm THC butter and pour it into the bowl allowing the cheesecloth to strain out the plant material. Then press a wooden spoon into the plant matter, to get more of the butter into the bowl. Remove the remaining drops of THC butter by removing the cheesecloth and squeezing out the last of the butter.
6.Allow the butter to cool for about an hour on the countertop or in your refrigerator. You will know it is ready to be transferred into storage containers when the top layer is solid.
7.Once you have it in airtight containers you can do anything you want with it. Purchase empty gelatin capsules online and fill them for optimal dosing or add it into pre-measured jars for use in later recipes.
NOTE: For those with dietary restrictions, you may not want to use butter. Here are a few heart-healthy alternatives: coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, and sesame oil.
Cannabis butter is a wonderful alternative to smoking weed marijuana and the very limited corporate edibles at local marijuana dispensaries. Once you know how to make THC butter, you can stash it for a tasty way to get high, anytime and place you desire. The more relaxing, creeping body high is preferred by many people, and you’ll never have to wonder about the content because you made the THC butter yourself.
