Have you ever heard of cannabutter? Cannabutter is a cannabis-infused food product that can be used to make other edibles like brownies and cookies. It is one way for people who use marijuana medicinally or recreationally to get the effects without smoking it. In this blog post, we will talk about what cannabutter is and how it affects your body when eaten in various forms, as well as provide instructions on how to make cannabutter!
The effects of cannabutter ingested in baked goods can be felt anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours after consumption. These effects are delayed and typically last longer than ingesting cannabis by smoking, but not as long as when taken orally or rectally.
Cannabinoids like THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) dissolve best with fat; the most effective way is to make edibles using high-quality butter that has been infused with marijuana for at least six hours before use. This will give you some of the highest potency because it’s absorbent and spreads evenly in your stomach due to its creamy texture, unlike oil which would just sit on top if consumed raw.

You need about ten grams of high-quality marijuana bud to make one ounce of cannabutter. Make sure the buds are ground up into a powder before infusing it with butter; this will cause less plant material and therefore be more potent.
The process would entail cooking cannabis in unsalted, unoiled butter for about three hours on medium heat (about 225 degrees Fahrenheit). It’s not necessary to stir unless you want some browning on your pot leaves — that just adds flavor.
You can then strain off the plant matter using cheesecloth or another fine mesh strainer after letting it cool down enough and place it in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Using higher fat content like whole milk instead of water when boiling beans is also an option, but can reduce potency.
The cannabutter will then be ready to use in any recipe that calls for butter or oil and is safe for cooking at high temperatures.
Why do people use cannabutter
There are many reasons why people use cannabutter. Some of the common reasons include:
The high from cannabutter is stronger and more intense than that of eating marijuana, but it can be difficult to ingest enough for an effect this way because butter or oil cannot be eaten by itself – It’s usually mixed in with food like brownies or cookies – Potential side effects such as dizziness, increased appetite, decreased pain sensitivity, mood elevation, lack of coordination, and increased energy.
Cannabutter can also be used medicinally to treat a range of symptoms such as insomnia, chronic pain, seizures, anxiety.
People must remember that it is illegal in many places to make cannabutter if you do not have medical marijuana license or are using cannabis for recreational purposes – this includes smoking the high.
This means you should never try making cannabutter unless you live somewhere where it’s legal because consuming any amount could result in jail time.
How to make cannabutter
Place a pound of butter in a saucepan and melt over medium heat.
Add ground cannabis to the melted butter, stirring occasionally for up to an hour. The more cannabis you use, the stronger your cannabutter will be – but it’s important not to overcook because the THC can burn off (it should take about one hour).
Pour into a container or cake pan lined with parchment paper. Let cool before putting in the freezer until solid. Peel away from liner when ready to have access to cannabutter (usually after overnight freezing). Use as needed!
Butter is used in recipes like brownies, cookies, and other baked goods.
Add the cannabutter to any recipe that would use melted butter; melt it first for a stronger flavor if desired. Just add an extra cup of unsalted butter or margarine.
It’s also easier to work with when you’re making dishes like sauces, dressing up rice or vegetables, frying eggs, and so on. Simply replace some of the fat called for with cannabutter!
The effects of consuming cannabutter
One of the most popular ways to consume cannabutter is by eating it.
Consuming cannabis edibles can provide a potent experience with effects that last much longer than smoking or vaporizing. It also provides different effects depending on what you’re consuming: for example, cocoa and sugar will amplify the THC high while vanilla extract may decrease some paranoia side effects.
If you’re looking for the desired head and body effects, eating a whole cannabis brownie might be more than enough. However, if it’s just about getting high fast then an edible may not have quite the same intensity as smoking or vaporizing marijuana. It all depends on what you’re looking to get out of your cannabutter experience.
The best way to consume the butter for maximum effect (i.e., what foods to eat, etc.)
Eat a whole cannabis brownie for the desired head and body effects. It’s also better to lower your dose if you’re only looking for an intense high and not medicinal benefits of cannabutter or eat smaller amounts at more regular intervals when combating nausea. If it’s really about getting high fast then eating any amount will do but that might be less potent than smoking marijuana.
The best way to consume the butter is by adding it into recipes such as cookies, cupcakes, cornbreads (to add a nice crispy flavor), macaroni, and cheese (you’ll want some bread crumbs on top!), pancakes, rice pudding, ice cream. Add in high-fat foods like nut butter or oils too!
Alcohol is a great addition to cannabutter if you want an alternative way of getting drunk. The alcohol in this recipe doesn’t actually get cooked off and remains intact so it’s important not to consume too much because the high potency will make you go crazy! Recipes with alcohol usually include cider, wine, or beer but any type will work as long as there is enough liquid for things to cook properly. This can be used like regular butter; just replace half of the recipe’s fat content with a cannabutter/alcohol mixture.
This should be stored in the fridge and consumed within two weeks before going bad on you. The butter loses potency over time and may not have the same effects as when it was first made.
