Our Simple Cannabutter Recipe (Works Every Time!)

Fixing for a tray of brownies? Here’s a no-mistakes guide to making cannabutter, also known as budder, in certain circles…

Before getting started, you will need to perform a decarboxylation of your cannabis. Our article outlines this simple process. Click the link, and use it to get the most out of your cannabis.

Cannabutter is one of the most common ways to infuse cannabis into edible form. It’s actually super easy to make! Butter, coconut oil or any other fatty oil can be used as a way to absorb THC and other cannabinoids.
However, butter burns easily. An eye should be kept on the butter throughout the whole process.

Ingredients

  • Water (1 cup)
  • Butter (1 cup)
  • Lightly ground decarboxylated cannabis buds or trim (1 oz)

We used around 100g of cannabis bud, trim and vaporizer resin, so we extrapolated the recipe and used just under 3 cups of water and butter.

Method

  1. Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of butter to your medium sized cooking pot and heat on medium-low until butter has melted.
  2. Turn oven to low and simmer. Add your decarboxylated cannabis and stir in gently.
  3. Simmer mixture on low for 4-5 hours. Then turn off heat and allow mixture to cool to bearable temperature.
  4. Cover your container with a cheese cloth, using some ribbon or twine around the edge of your container is also an option to keep the cheesecloth stable. Pour your warm mixture over the cheese cloth into your container carefully. Squeeze out the remaining liquid.
  5. Place the container –minus the cheesecloth– onto a bench in your kitchen until room temperature and then place in the fridge to solidify for a few hours.
  6. Once solidified, use a knife to cut your cannabutter into easy to use pieces and drain the water. 
At this point, it’s good practice to measure how much cannabutter you received for your efforts. Once measured, it’s then time to store the butter in a clean, sealed container until you’re ready to use it.
And that’s it! Now you can do anything you wish (yes, ANYTHING – cook, eat, seductively smother on your body) with your newly-made butter. It functions just like regular butter for cooking purposes, so get creative!
Send us your culinary creations, and we’ll happily feature them here on Friendly Aussie Buds.

Recommendations for dosage if I were to use this is in, say, a brownie recipe? Would you replace the whole amount of butter with budder instead and be able to reasonably consume one whole brownie without greening out, typically?

If it’s with trim/vaped weed. You’ll be able to have one brownie without an issue replacing all of the butter. If it’s with fresh buds, it’ll be incredibly potent.

Generally, my rule of thumb is 7g of dried buds for 1 batch of brownies. (about 100-150g of butter)
If it’s AVB or trim, about 21 grams for the same effect. (Though I’d say it’s shorter lasting than the dried buds)

It doesn’t matter too much as long as you have enough water that the butter doesn’t burn. If you want medical butter, don’t decarb the bud. You want all that THCA and a few other compounds!
