Cannabutter is the key ingredient in many cannabis-infused edibles. With cannabis butter, you can make any recipe into a batch of homemade edibles. It is also a primary ingredient in marijuana edibles, such as the famous brownies, and the finest way to consume cannabis other than smoking it.
Can you make cannabutter by yourself? Yes, you need persistence, planning, several hours of interrupted time, a reliable recipe, and knowledge of dosing. But for adequately measured and well-made edibles, going to a FLUENT Cannabis location in Florida is a better option. We want to ensure you understand that process, which is why FLUENT has created a practical guide to cannabutter.
What Is Cannabutter?
Cannabutter is the most popular and primary method of producing many pastry-based edibles. In other words, you can use it as a cooking ingredient in any dish asking for butter to be used.
As previously stated, infused cannabis products(cannabis edibles) offer a perfect alternative to smoking marijuana. But the infusion process necessitates combustion, which releases harmful substances like tar and may encourage cancer growth. Infused butter is the ideal option because it’s simple to make, enabling you to enjoy marijuana covertly, and doesn’t produce any dangerous residues. Additionally, you can use infused butter in recipes such as cannabutter brownies and cookies.
The break-down of the steps needed to make quality cannabutter:
- Choose high-quality cannabis is flower
- Decarboxylate the cannabis takes anywhere from 20-60 minutes
- Strain the cannabis into a fine grind
- Add enough cannabis products to get the desired strength you want
- Stovetop Infusion with butter or oil, this process takes at least 4 hours
Overall, this process takes six-nine hours to make enough for a batch of edibles. Because of this lengthy process, we suggest getting high-quality, properly dosed edibles from one of our dispensaries in Florida.

How Is Cannabutter Used to Make Edibles?
You can use cannabutter to make any baked items or other foods. But when it comes to how to make cannabutter, it is essential to understand that activated (decarboxylated) cannabis is vital because you will mix it at low temperature with fatty oils such as ordinary butter. Cannabis must be heated to be decarboxylated from THCA to THC, which produces the psychoactive effects. As pointed out above, this process takes anywhere from 20-60 minutes on average and depends on various factors like the age of the flower you are using and the quality of the flower.
Why Calculating Edible Dosage Is Difficult
Calculating your edibles’ dosage can be tricky since numerous factors are at stake when infusing butter with weed, and there is no precise formula. More specifically, dosing cannabutter is challenging because its potency depends on the cannabis used, the length of time it is heated during infusion, and the temperature.
Furthermore, it’s critical to remember that as opposed to tinctures or smoking cannabis, consuming edibles has a delayed effect. As a result, choosing the correct dosage may be difficult if you’re a beginner with consuming medical marijuana products or don’t consume edibles frequently because of that delayed effect.
