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
