How to Make Cannabutter At Home

Cannabutter is a key ingredient in many cannabis-infused recipes, from brownies to cookies to cakes. It’s a versatile ingredient that can be used in a wide range of dishes and making it is relatively easy. Here’s how to make your own cannabutter at home:


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ounce of high-quality cannabis buds, finely ground


  1. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).
  2. Spread the ground cannabis buds evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake the cannabis buds in the oven for 30-40 minutes. This process, called decarboxylation, activates the THC in the buds and makes it available for use in the cannabutter.
  4. In a large saucepan, melt the butter on low heat.
  5. Add the water and ground cannabis buds to the melted butter and stir well.
  6. Simmer the mixture on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the mixture boil, as this can damage the cannabinoids and reduce the potency of the cannabutter.
  7. After 2-3 hours, remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a large bowl or container. Be sure to squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible.
  9. Place the bowl or container in the refrigerator for a few hours, or overnight. The cannabutter will solidify and separate from the water.
  10. Once the cannabutter is solid, remove it from the bowl or container and discard the water.
  11. Store the cannabutter in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to use it in your favorite cannabis-infused recipes.


  • Use high-quality cannabis buds for the best results.
  • Be sure to grind the cannabis buds finely before using them in the recipe.
  • Don’t let the mixture boil, as this can damage the cannabinoids and reduce the potency of the cannabutter.
  • Be patient and let the cannabutter cool and solidify before straining it. This will help ensure that you get the most out of your cannabis buds.

Making your own cannabutter is a great way to incorporate cannabis into your cooking and baking. With these simple instructions, you’ll be on your way to making delicious cannabis-infused treats in no time!
