Pre Baking Batches of Weed Butter
Cannabutter is the base of about a billion different weed edible recipes so whipping up a batch (like, now) and freezing it into ice cube trays, in the freezer will ensure that you never run out and you only have to make it once.
Depending on the type of high you want, why not make two or three various batches of cannabutter and label them according to the high it produces?
For example, if you’re going to decarb Bubba Kush, and you know you always feel relaxed, tired, and enjoy a couch-lock ride – then label this batch something like: “sleepy butter”.
Or, if you want to feel happy and elevated, use Skull Cap in your next batch and label it happy weed butter.
The list goes on and on – but I think you get the point.
Here’s how to effectively and properly make Cannabutter at home:
Decarboxylate your weed by spreading your cannabis evenly on an oven tray And coat with aluminum foil.
Place in the oven on 240F/115C for 25 till 45 minutes, and then let it cool.
Grind your dry cannabis or chop it till fine.
Place the cannabis in a strong mason jar, add butter and (1 tsp of sunflower lecithin)(optional)
Place your closed jar in cold water and let it come to a boil, Boil for 2 to 3 hours.
Strain your butter through a cheesecloth.
Now you can use the Cannabis Butter (Cannabutter)
If using a mason jar, be sure to start with cold water. Furthermore, it is imperative to let the water cool gradually so that your glass will not shatter.The video guide might be slightly different than the blog recipe. The blog recipe is the most updated and accurate.
1wholelimecut into wedges with a small slit on top, to use for rimming the edge of the glass.
Mix up all of your ingredients together except for Sprite and Candy Canes in a pitcher.
Grab your cocktail glasses and slide a lime wedge around the entire rim a few times, pushing hard.
Place your glass upside down into the sugar ( just pour the sugar on a plate) and rim your glass! If you don't have sugar, you can also crush up candy canes and use them here – make sure they're finely crushed.
Pour your cocktail mixture evenly into all glasses, pop a candy cane inside and voila!
Cookies are wonderful little things because you can make them relatively fast once you have enough decarbed weed, and you can freeze them for weeks so that they’re ready anytime you like!
Here is one of our favourite weed cookie recipes you can make and have ready before the holidays. Stuff a few in your coat if you’re going to a non-weed-friendly home and take a nibble in the bathroom if you’re really stuck!
