How to Make Cannabutter

Welcome, Spaced Cadets! Have you ever wanted to cook a gourmet meal or create your edibles while having a blast? CannaButter offers an excellent way to enhance your cooking and dining experience. This blog will guide you through making CannaButter with steps and materials. 


CannaButter is what it sounds like – cannabis-infused butter. You can use this butter to make edibles with virtually anything or even prepare an exciting dinner experience. Following a specific process will undoubtedly yield results worth the wait.


Here are the steps, materials, and ingredients you'll need to create your own CannaButter. With this recipe, you can expect approximately 30MG of THC per tablespoon of butter.



·      Parchment Paper

·      Baking Sheet

·      Oven

·      Cooking Pot

·      Grinder

·      Mesh Strainer or Cheese Cloth



·      1 cup of Quality Butter

·      1 cup of Water

·      7-14 grams of Your Choice of Cannabis Flower



1.     Decarboxylate the weed.

2.     Break up the cannabis.

3.     Melt the butter.

4.     Add cannabis to the butter.

5.     Simmer between 160-200 Fahrenheit.

6.     Strain the flower chunks from the butter.

7.     Chill the finished product in the fridge for a few hours, draining any excess water after solidifying.


Now that you have all the necessary materials and ingredients, it's time to prepare some CannaButter! Preheat the oven to 220-245 degrees, depending on your oven. Begin with the decarboxylation process by placing half an ounce of weed in the oven for 20-45 minutes. Mix the weed every 10-15 minutes to avoid burning. This step activates THCA and CBDA, unlocking the psychoactive effects of THC and CBD.


The next step involves infusing the weed with butter. Although time-consuming, this process is worthwhile. Melt 1 cup of quality butter and add water to the pan. The water prevents the butter from fully melting. While the butter is melting, break down the weed with your hands or a grinder. Be cautious not to grind anything smaller than your mesh strainer or cheesecloth. Once the weed is ground, add it to the pot and let it simmer on low heat (160-200 Fahrenheit) for 2-3 hours. Stir occasionally, ensuring it doesn't boil. Remember that the longer it simmers, the more potent and discreet it will be.


The final steps involve straining the weed and butter mixture using a cheesecloth or mesh strainer. Pour the product into the strainer over a jar or bowl. Once cooled to room temperature, your CannaButter is ready for immediate use or can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 6 months.


This versatile creation is perfect for a home dinner or a delightful dessert. Remember not to operate machinery after using CannaButter. Share your CannaButter experience with us, and our knowledgeable budtenders at Spaced can provide great recommendations tailored to your preferences!
