How To Make Cannabis Butter


By Hippy KK


This recipe makes 1 lb. of Cannabudder



Step 1 – You will need: A 2 qt. or larger pan, long handled spoon for stirring, 4 sticks of butter, 2 cups of water, 1 oz. Cannabis, cheesecloth, rubber band, and a plastic container with a lid.

Step 2 – On high heat, bring your water to a boil. Once your water is boiling, reduce heat to medium. Place your butter in water and melt completely.

Step 3 – Once butter is melted, reduce heat to low.

Step 4 – Now that the butter has melted, add your Cannabis.  Add in any combination of Cannabis parts which equals 1 oz. and stir well. Let simmer for approximately three hours stirring occasionally.

Step 5 – While your mix is simmering, prepare the container with the cheesecloth. Cut a piece of cheesecloth large enough to double over that will fit across your container with an allowance on all four sides so that the rubber band holds it down.

Step 6 – When the mixture has turned ‘thick’ and glossy in appearance it is time to strain out the Cannabis.

Step 7 – Slowly pour the entire mixture over the top of the cheesecloth. Do this over the sink to make it easy to clean up spills.

Step 8 – After pouring the entire mixture over the cheesecloth, carefully remove the rubber band by holding all four sides of the cloth, in doing so, it’ll prevent the cloth from falling into the mixture when you remove the rubber band. CAUTION CONTENTS ARE HOT. Being careful not to burn yourself while squeezing out excess butter. If you prefer, you may leave the Cannabis on the cheesecloth to cool and squeeze the excess out afterwards.

Discard the Cannabis and cheesecloth. This process removes the THC leaving few – if any – reasons to keep the Cannabis remains.

Step 9 – Place the lid on your container and allow to cool in the refrigerator, preferably overnight or at least for several hours until the Cannabudder on top solidifies.

Step 10 – Once the Cannabudder has solidified on top remove it from the refrigerator. As you can see, some liquefied water will remain underneath the Cannabudder. Over the sink, remove lid and squeeze sides of the container to release the Cannabudder. Tip container upside down over the sink and allow the water to drain.


Congratulations! You know have a solid pound of Cannabudder. Store Cannabudder in container used to make it or wrap in Saran Wrap before placing it in your refrigerator.


As always, be cautious anytime you are using a new method of consuming Cannabis as each can have unique effects.
