As legalization rolls out across the country more and more people are experimenting with cannabis in cooking. Our recipe will walk you through all the steps, including prepping your favourite herb for maximize THC extraction through a method called decarboxilation.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 1 lb of cannabis butter


15 grams of your favourite sativa or indica

1 lbs, or about 450 g, of unsalted butter


1Begin by heating your oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit.

2While the oven is coming up to temperature set your water bath for 185 degrees Fahrenheit

3Grind your cannabis until fine and place on a parchment lined baking sheet in a single layer

4Bake for 25 minutes until browned and the THC has been fully extracted.

5Place your fat, in this case butter although coconut oil and other options are certainly out there, in a mason chair

6Wrap your cannabis in cheesecloth, tightly, and place in the mason jar - note that when closing the lid use the 'finger tight' rule to avoid shattering during cooking

7Fully submerge the mason jar in your water bath and cook for 4 hours

8When done cooking remove from the water bath, squeeze out any remaining liquid from the bundle into the mason jar, pat dry, re-seal and store for up to 30 days

Ratios rule in the kitchen and cannabis butter is no exception. Although we've suggsted 15 grams here you can scale this down easily. For instance, in this recipe the cannabis represents about 3% of the total weight.
