Cannabis-infused butter, also known as cannabutter, is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of cannabis-infused recipes. In this blog post, we'll provide you with a simple and easy recipe for making cannabis butter at home.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup ground cannabis flower (decarboxylated)


  1. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).

  4. Remove the cannabis from the oven and let it cool.

  5. Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan over low heat.

  6. Once the butter has melted, add the toasted cannabis to the saucepan and stir to combine.

  7. Simmer the mixture over low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally, until the butter has become infused with the cannabinoids from the cannabis.

  8. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

  • Decarboxylation is a crucial step in making cannabis butter. This process involves heating the cannabis to activate the THC and other cannabinoids in the plant. To decarboxylate your cannabis, spread it out evenly on a baking sheet and bake it in the oven at 240°F (115°C) for 30-40 minutes.

  • Use unsalted butter for this recipe to avoid altering the flavor of your final product.

  • Adjust the dosage according to your needs. The potency of your cannabis butter will depend on the strength of the cannabis you use, as well as the amount you add to the recipe.

  • Store your cannabis butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer to keep it fresh and potent.
