choosing strains

Some cannabis strains are great for cooking.

“Strains that have fruity and berry-like terpenes—they are a bit easier to work with as the flavor and aroma are already pleasing and come through nicely when extracting

Here are 10 of my favorite strains for making Cannabutter

Lemon Riot, Strawberry Cream , Pink Kush, Jack Herer, OG Kush, Diesel, Purple Kush, Orange Crush, White Widow, AK-47



2 cup of butter

1 cup (10 grams) of ground cannabis, decarboxylated

Before making your cannabutter, you’ll need to decarboxylate, the cannabis flower you’re working with. Skipping this step will result in a weak or inactive finished product. Here’s why: Cannabis buds produce a non-intoxicating acidic cannabinoid called THCA. When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, the heat converts THCA into THC, the molecule that delivers euphoric effects. If preparing CBD edibles, this same process should be applied.

Decarb the cannabis. Preheat your oven to 245ºF. Place cannabis buds in a mason jar and place on the tray.

Insert the tray into the oven and set a timer for 30-40 minutes. Older, drier cannabis may require less time.

Grind. Grind the decarboxylated cannabis coarsely with a hand grinder.

Melt the butter and separate the milk solids so you are just left with the butter fat.

Mix the cannabis with the clarified butter in a mason jar.

Bring a pot of water to Simmer. Maintain low heat (ideally above 160ºF but never exceeding 200ºF) and let the mixture simmer for 2 hours in the double boiler, stirring occasionally. The mixture should never come to a full boil.

Strain the cannabutter. Set a funnel on top of a jar and line it with cheesecloth. Pour it over the cheesecloth funnel and allow it to strain freely.
