Step 5: Let it cook

  • Allow the butter-weed mixture to cook on low for about 3 hours.
  • Stir it every 15 minutes and do not let it boil—boiling will damage the cannabinoids.
  • As the butter-weed mixture cooks, the butter will become much darker and thicker.

Step 6: Cheesecloth

  • Use your string or rubber band to secure a double layer of cheesecloth over a large bowl.
  • Leave the cloth a little slack, so all your precious weed butter doesn’t spill over the edges when you pour it onto the cloth.
  • When the butter-weed mixture has thickened up and looks glossy, carefully pour mixture through cheesecloth.

Step 7: Pour Butter

  • lift the cloth up by its corners, and slowly squeeze out the remaining butter.

Step 9: Solid

  • Through the cooling process, the cannabutter will have floated to the top of the water and solidified.
  • Once the cannabutter is solid, run a knife around the edge of the bowl and remove your weed butter.
  • Carefully remove any water still stuck to the underside of the cannabutter.

You’re all done!
