Cannabutter – The Cannabis Butter
1 ounce of cannabis
8 ounce of butter
16 ounce of water
1/2 to 1 pound of cannabis
5 pounds butter
thick rubber bands
tall plastic containers with lids
4 gallon cooking pot
Place the butter and the cannabis in your pot. Fill with water to several inches of the brim. Cover it up and then slightly cracked and bring to a boil over medium fire.
Lower the heat to simmer and then cook for 6 to 8 min’, stirring occasionally. remove from heat and allow to cool until you can safely handle the pot easily. Stretch cheesecloth over the plastic containers and secure tightly with rubber bands.
Ladle the mixture, onto the cheesecloth until each container is filled several inches from the top. Remove cheesecloth and tightly squeeze the remaining liquid from the strained matter. Place the containers in your freezer on a level surface for at least 6 hours.
The butter will solidify and some of the water will turn to ice. Take off the lid, and with one hand supporting the ice block, turn container upside down and release. Some water will come pouring out, and the ice just needs to be scraped away from the butter block. You should be left with a round slab of light green butter. It can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen for long term storage. You can use cannabutter just as you would regular butter in any recipe.
