For those of you who want to feel the full body effects of weed, making edibles are probably your best bet. Not only do edible trips last longer, they have a much more profound effect on the user. Keep on reading for more about our how to make cannabutter tutorial.

This is because when THC is eaten, it converts the THC into 11-Hydroxy THC, which is far more potent than THC in its smoked form.

That is precisely the reason you don’t want to eat too much of it. Nonetheless, having edibles on hand isn’t a bad idea. There’s a couple of reasons why you want to make cannabutter.

Benefits of Edibles

Edibles serve multiple purposes. Firstly, for those who want to get shit-faced high, it’s the longest lasting trip and has the heaviest effects on the consumer.

Secondly, it tastes amazing! You can turn your weed into brownies, soups, teas and much more using cannabutter.

For medical reasons, eating weed is probably the best as well. Specifically, for pain management. Seeing that eating cannabis can give you a high that lasts hours, it’s the best painkiller on the market. The best thing of all is that you can make this at your home without a problem.

So now, let’s walk you through the process.

How to Make Cannabutter

The first step on how to make cannabutter comes with selecting the right weed. Depending on how potent you want it, find a suitable strain to match the desired effect. Just remember, it’s going to be more potent, thus getting a milder strain is recommended.

Secondly, you’ll want to grind up the weed you want to use. We recommend using an 1/8th of an ounce to start off with, but experiment to your desired effects.

You’ll then want to decarbolize the cannabis. To do this, lay it out on a platter and heat the oven to about 200º F. Place the tray on the inside with the weed equally spread out and leave it in there for no longer than 15 minutes.

Once you remove the decarbolized weed, you will start mixing it with some high fat level butter. The reason you want high fat count is because THC is lipid based. Meaning it bonds to the lipids.

You’ll take the butter and stir it with the grounded-decarbed weed. Do this for at least 30 minutes.

Finally, you’ll strain the mixture through some filter, like a thin strainer or cheesecloth.

Once you’ve separated the plant material from the butter, you can put it in the fridge.

Use the cannabutter as a substitute for “butter” in any recipe to infuse cannabis into your food.

What to Look Out For

Don’t eat too much weed. If you feel like it’s not hitting you, wait for at least 40 more minutes before eating the weed. Eating cannabis takes longer to hit and if you over-consume, you might be in for a heavy ride.

If you did by accident consume too much, don’t worry…ride it out, you won’t die.

And that’s how to make cannabutter! Bong-apatite!
