How Do I Make Cannabutter?
If you haven’t made it before, don’t sweat! It’s easy and versatile, goes in most edible recipes and you can even freeze it for about a week (or so).
Before we jump into making cannbutter, a few things to consider:
- Do you have a proper butter mold? It will make life so much easier for you in your cannabis kitchen.
- Do you live in a warmer climate? If so, freezing or making sure your cannabutter is always in the fridge might be a great choice to prevent mold and melting.
- Have you made up a list of recipes you’d like to try and enjoy with cannabutter? Having a proper cannabis cookbook or a list of things you’d like to bake or cook will help you know how much butter to make.
