Weed refers to the flowers, stems, dried leaves and seeds from the hemp plant of Cannabis sativa. Butter can be produced from weed by following the steps. Cannabis butter is amongst the simplest and common medicated food. The making of cannabis butter is simple but sometimes it is also tricky. It becomes tricky as the THC is to be properly decarboxylate i.e. the THC is to be changed from the acid form to the psychoactive form. It is important to understand that cannabis is to be heated for long times at low temperature. There are many different ways in which cannabis butter can be prepared. Below is listed one method of preparing butter from weed.
- Step 1
Take a medium saucepan and add some water into it so that t can boil into stove. The amount of water can differ. Usually the weed should be floating about 2 inches above the water so add sufficient water in the pan.
- Step 2
You have added water to the pan and let the water boil. Then place butter in pan and let it melt completely. 4 sticks of butter should be used with every ounce of weed i.e. If you are using half ounce of weed hen you will need 2 sticks of butter.
- Step 3
Check whether the butter has melted. After the butter gets melted add the appropriate amount of weed to it. After adding weed turn the heat down to low. Let the weed cook until it becomes glossy and thick from watery one.
- Step 4
When the butter is being cooked prepare the bowl for the finished product. A heat proof bowl is a good option. Plastic food container can also be used. Place the double layer of cheesecloth and secure the container with a string, tape or elastic.
- Step 5
Now the butter is ready so strain the weed butter in a bowl and take care that it does not get spilled. When the saucepan is not filled very carefully pick the cheesecloth from all four sides and squeeze the butter which is left.
- Step 6
Keep the butter so that it cools down. Keep it to cool for about an hour. Keep the bowl in fridge and let it be there till the butter has risen and has become solid. As the butter is kept in fridge and the layer has increased and become solid it means that the THC and other properties have been added to the butter.
- Step 7
Take a knife and apply it on the edges and take the butter out. Keep the bowl upside down and pour any cooking water on it. Your butter is ready.
The recipe shows that it is very easy to prepare butter from weed. It has simple steps but it is needed to maintain the temperatures and measurements. Sometimes it is tricky to prepare butter from weed but still it is simple and at the end it gains all the THC and other properties.
