Here is the updated cannabutter recipe.
In previous posts I discussed different methods of making cannabutter, but I have found this is easier and you will know the butter's potency. Also- no smell!
- a 2 quart saucepan
- a whisk or handheld blender
- a spoon
- a chef's knife
- a 48 oz round container with a lid
You will also need a digital scale and oral syringes, if you are measuring out the cannabis oil from a container versus using premeasured syringes of cannabis oil.
2 pounds of unsalted butter
28g of cannabis oil(RSO)
First off, clarify your butter.
Chop up the butter into 2oz or 1/4c pieces.
Place the butter in the saucepan and put this on the stove at either warm or low.
The main goal here is just to slowly melt the butter without any bubbling. Bubbling causes the milk solids to come up from the bottom and to mix back in.
If using a gas stove, simply place on a burner that has the pilot flame on.
This will take around 30 minutes, sometimes a little longer.
When it is done, the milk solids will be visible on the bottom of the saucepan and the milk fats will be a thin foam/skin on the top of the butter.
Skim off the milk fats off the top of the butter and discard them.
To take the butter off the butter solids, there are a few ways you can do this:
-slowly pour the butter into the plastic container until you have to use the spoon to collect the last of the butter
- use a ladle, large spoon or a large syringe like a meat injector without the tip- to collect the butter and place it into the plastic container
Once the butter is collected, while it is still warm- add all of the cannabis oil.
Incorporate it thoroughly using either a whisk or a hand held blender.
This is why I use a round 48 oz container-I need the room to mix it in without making a mess!
There may be up to 2 oz of butter lost after it has been clarified. However, clarified butter has a longer shelf life than unclarified butter and it has a higher smoke point.
Note: Cannabis oil percentages.
I use cannabis oil that is at least 50% THC, which means that per gram there is 500mg or more of THC.
