Back of House Secrets: How to Make Canna Butter

1. Decarboxylate Your Cannabis:

  1. Preheat your oven to about 245°F (118°C).
  2. Spread your ground cannabis on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  3. Bake the cannabis for about 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to ensure even heating.


2. Melt the Butter:

  • Melt the butter in your saucepan or slow cooker on low heat. Opting for low and slow is key to keeping the chill vibes without burning your mixture.
  • Add the Cannabis:
    • Once the butter has melted, add your decarboxylated cannabis.
    • Keep the heat low and let the mixture simmer gently for about 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally to make it feel loved.


3. Strain the Butter:

  • Set up your cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer over your storage container.
  • Slowly pour the butter through the strainer. This part’s like panning for gold, except what’s left in the cloth is the plant material, and the liquid gold is your canna butter.
  • Squeeze out all the butter from the cheesecloth, but don’t squeeze too hard—just enough to get the good stuff.


4. Chill Out:

  • Let the canna butter cool at room temperature, then cover it and put it in the fridge to solidify. Once it’s hard, it’s ready to roll.


5. Storage:

  • You can store your canna butter in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container. In the fridge, it should be good for several weeks; in the freezer, it could last a few months.
  • Dosage and Potency: Remember, the potency of your canna butter depends on the strain and amount of cannabis used. Start with small amounts in your culinary creations until you understand how strong it is.
  • Smell: Decarboxylating and cooking cannabis can get a bit aromatic. If you’re not alone, maybe give a heads up to your roommates or neighbors, unless you’re planning to share!

Tip: For those new to cannabis cooking, consider starting with half the suggested amount of cannabis to test its effects. Adjust the amount as you become more familiar with its strength and effects.

Presentation Matters: Serving Your Canna Butter

You’ve just sailed through the high seas of culinary cannabis with finesse, so give yourself a pat on the back—or better yet, a taste of your homemade canna butter. With your newly minted skills, you're not just a cook; you’re a creator of comfort, a chef of chill. Now that you've got the knack for knocking out top-notch edibles, remember that the presentation can be just as important as the preparation. Garnish your dishes with a sprinkle of herbs or a few edible flowers to elevate their visual allure, making every plate not just a meal but a masterpiece.

When it comes to enjoying your cannabis-infused creations, consider the setting and pairing to enhance the experience. A calm environment, perhaps some mellow tunes, and the right company can turn a simple snack into a sublime moment. Pair your edibles with herbal teas or a cool lemonade to complement the flavors and effects of the cannabis. Start with small portions to gauge the strength of your canna butter, especially if you’re sharing with friends who are new to cannabis edibles.
