How To Make Cannabis Infused Butter

Updated: Jun 6

Edibles have gained more and more popularity as far as forms of consumption. The most common way to make them has been making cannabis-infused butter and adding it to some sort of dessert recipe. Sometimes, it can be a bit complex if you never or rarely make cannabutter.


It is more than just throwing some weed in melted butter. The processes, including decarboxylation, require some attention to detail for the safe distribution of cannabis in the butter.


This recipe will call for a cup of butter and roughly 7 grams of cannabis. The first step is to decarb your cannabis. Decarboxylation basically means heating the cannabis so that the nonpsychoactive THCA becomes the psychoactive THC. Now, effects from the flower will take place.


Here are the steps to making the perfect cannabis-infused butter:


  1. Decarboxylation. Preheat the oven at 245ºF and roughly break down cannabis by hand or by a grinder. Create a thin layer on a tray lined with parchment paper. Place the tray in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Mix the flour every 10 minutes.

  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan on simmer.

  3. Add the decarbed cannabis to the butter.

  4. Simmer the mixture for 2-3 hours while stirring occasionally. (between 160ºF - 200ºF)

  5. Strain the cannabutter using a cheesecloth.

  6. Using a funnel, transfer the butter into a jar and let it cool down.
