Top 5 Easy Cannabutter Recipes to make at home

Cannabis is an extremely versatile plant. Part of that versatility is thanks to its complex and sacred chemistry. One easy way to unlock the powerful effects of cannabis is through baking with cannabutter. Butter that has been infused with cannabis flower, also called “cannabutter”, is a simple do-it yourself way to prepare edibles at home. Cannabutter has many uses in cooking including cookies, sandwiches, desserts, pasta, and more.

*The exact potency of made-at-home cannabutter will depend on many factors and no two batches will be exactly the same. You may want to test your final product by spreading ¼ tsp on some toast and wait 2-3 hours to see how that batch affects you. Use that as a dosage barometer and increase or decrease the amount used in each recipe as desired.

Follow the simple steps below to create your very own batch of cannabutter to use in our top 5 cannabutter recipes.
