How To Make Cannabutter?

Cannabutter can be delicious on its own or as an ingredient in other recipes such as brownies or cookies.

Take a high-quality bud and put it in the oven to cook until the flavor is released. It’s easy and fun. Cooking at too much heat can risk compromising the quality integrity of the cannabinoids, so an hour at 210-220 degrees is advised.

If you make a mistake with the temperature, you may end up burning your precious cannabinoids and ruining everything.

Baking With Cannabutter

Cannabutter is the most common essential ingredient. It’s the basis of almost all cooking with cannabis and comes in many variations. I’ve been there too, wondering what the heck you can do with cannabutter. 

After all, it’s just butter infused with cannabis. Cannabutter is an excellent way to prepare a wide variety. The recipes will show you in a bit, will be your ultimate guide.

Best Strains For Cannabutter

OG Kush is one of the most popular strains on the market, and it’s no secret why — this is a potent strain that plants you firmly in a place of relaxation with its potent THC levels. It’s also easy to use for many types of cannabutter.

When used in food, cannabutter designed from OG Kush leaves you with a lasting euphoria. It is helpful as a pain reliever. You can use its buds to make delicious butter wherever you live.

  1. Mix all ingredients apart from the chocolate chips. Be sure to use a spoon and spatula to incorporate everything evenly. Roll into balls, drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours to harden.

Peanut butter and cannabis are perfect for each other. You probably already know that they’re great together. This recipe is a classic example of the incredible munchies-pairing.

Step By Step

  1. Stir the honey, peanut butter, and cannabutter together in a bowl until everything is thoroughly combined. After the liquid ingredients are stirred, add the vanilla extract to the bowl.
  2. Add the nuts, pretzels, oats, and salt to a large bowl and stir. Mix until the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Measure one tablespoon of cannabutter into a bowl. Roll each scoop of cannabutter to make ten evenly sized balls. Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Scoop each bite into your palm, making sure to leave a bit of space between scoops. Place the scoops on a parchment-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart from one another.

  2. In a small saucepan on low heat, add 2 cups of cannabutter, ¼ cup of peanut butter, and a tiny drop of vanilla.

Mix this all together and add nuts or dried fruit.
  3. Turn on the stove to medium heat. Melt the butter in the flat pan. Pour the sugar mixture into the pan. Once it starts bubbling, use your spatula to spread it out evenly. You can also help it along with a table knife.

Step By Step

  2. Set the oven to 350° and spray an 8-inch square metal cooking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, allowing 1 inch of overhang on two opposite sides; spray the paper. In a small bowl, mix the flour with the salt and baking powder. In a medium bowl, mix the unsalted butter, cannabutter, and brown sugar until smooth, then mix in the eggs and orange zest. Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

The Crust

The Filling

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a medium bowl, mix 2 cups crushed graham crackers (16-20), 1 cup melted cannabutter, and ½ cup chopped walnuts. Prep the crust by greasing and lining a 9-inch springform pan. Pour in the crust mixture, press down, then bring it up an inch on the sides of the pan.
  2. Add 1 cup of plain yogurt and one tablespoon vanilla extract to your mixing bowl. Chop up your strawberries, pineapple, and kiwi fruits into small pieces and add them to the mixture.
  3. You can also make this ahead of time and prepare it refrigerated. When you’re ready, simply add the filling mixture one-third at a time. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Then pour it into the prepared crust. Add your desired toppings, such as berries or chocolate chips, and chill for at least four hours before serving.

Cannabutter Tarts

  • Serving size: 12
  • Prep time: 40 minutes
  • Cooking time: 25 minutes
  • Total time: 2 hours
  • Cuisine type: Canadian

Butter tarts are a Canadian staple, and this version is not to be missed. The maple syrup and the added cannabis give it an extra boost of flavor.

Equipment Needed

Ingredients

Crust

Filling

Step By Step

  1. Mix all-purpose flour, pure cane sugar, and acceptable sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the cold cannabutter into small cubes and add to the flour mixture. Pulse 8 to 10 times until the cannabutter is broken up into small pieces (it won’t thoroughly blend in). Add in some ice water, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough holds together when you squeeze it. Gather the dough into a ball and divide it into two equal-sized balls.
  2. Use a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass to cut out 12 circles. Stack two pieces of pastry on top of each other and use a fork to prick the base and side. Chill.
  3. While the crusts are chilling out, you can preheat your oven to 400°F. Prepare the filling by mixing the brown sugar, maple syrup, eggs, cider vinegar, and extract. This will keep everything emulsified, so your pastry stays nice and smooth.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes at 350°F, reduce heat to low, and continue to bake until pastry is golden brown on top and edges are just starting to brown, about 10-12 more minutes.

Glaze

Step By Step

  1. Increase oven temperature to 325° F, use parchment paper after greasing an 8 x 4 loaf pan. Combine the sugar and butter in a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat these ingredients on medium speed. Combine each ingredient well, incorporating the eggs one at a time.
  2. Beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla, scraping the sides of the bowl to avoid lumps. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl. Slowly incorporate all the ingredients into the same bowl. Pour the result into the previously greased mold.
  3. Bake the dough for approximately 55 minutes. Let cool for one hour at room temperature. Incorporate the cannabis-infused glaze. Combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl and cover the lemon cake.
