Cannabis-infused butter, or canna butter, is a versatile ingredient that can be used to add a potent dose of THC and other cannabinoids to a variety of dishes. It’s a popular choice for those looking to create homemade edibles or for adding a little extra something to their cooking and baking.
There are several potential benefits to using canna butter in your cooking. For one, it’s a convenient and discreet way to consume cannabis. Simply replace regular butter with canna butter in your favorite recipes and you’ll have a tasty and effective edible. Canna butter can also be a good option for those who don’t like smoking or vaporizing their cannabis.
In addition to its convenience, canna butter has a number of potential health benefits. THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, has been shown to have a number of therapeutic effects, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory properties, and the ability to improve sleep. Canna butter can be a good way to incorporate these benefits into your diet.
Making your own canna butter at home is relatively easy. Here’s a simple recipe for how to make your own cannabutter:
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of ground cannabis buds (or trim)
- Cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Once the butter is melted, add the ground cannabis buds and stir to combine.
- Reduce the heat to low and simmer the mixture for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer into a clean jar or bowl. Discard the solids.
- Allow the canna butter to cool and solidify before using it in your recipes.
Note: The potency of your canna butter will depend on the potency of the cannabis you use and the amount you use in the recipe. It’s important to start with a small dose and gradually increase as needed.
