Homemade butter makes the best canna-butter BY FAR
Almost a month ago, my second post on SMOKE.io was how to make real homemade butter when making the best possible canna-butter. When you make your own butter, versus just buying butter from a store's dairy department, you are eliminating the water from the butter. The water and excess moisture you find in store bought (commericialized) butter will dilute your canna-butter; which means the potency will be lowered. And we don't want that, do we?
So check out the link above about making homemade butter. And once you have that made and it has chilled for 24-hours, you can proceed and make canna-butter.
So let's get to it!
Measure out the amount of cannabis you want. I used 6-ounces of trim per one-pound of homemade butter here. You can also use ground up buds if you prefer; but I usually have enough trim to go around to making canna-butter here.
While it may seem like a lot of trim to use, I prefer to have a lot when making cannabutter so it gives the edibles I am making more punch; and I have never had any complaints.
Start melting the homemade butter on a VERY low heat. You don't want to burn it. Then add in the measured cannabis trim, or bud. Let melt over low heat. It takes about 5-10 minutes depending on the amount of butter used.
NOTE- UPDATE Keep canna-butter at a rolling simmer to reach at least 100-degrees for 30 minutes and stir often - Thank you @indica for the reminder!
