How to make cannabutter?
Cannabutter cannot be made using raw cannabis. Adding raw cannabis in your recipes is not possible as many cannabinoids of the plant do not bind with fat. Therefore, before cooking marijuana food activates the cannabinoids or else the recipes will lack desirable buzz. It will fail the definition of true marijuana edibles!
Making cannabutter is simple and quick. The first step is to activate the CBD and THC via ‘Decarboxylation’. In marijuana, the neuro-protective, anti-inflammatory natural component THCA [tetrahydrocannabinolic acid] is activated using heat. The buds get decarboxylate and transform into THC, which is the main psychoactive ingredient.
For the decarboxylation process, coarsely grind and roast the buds in an oven at 210-220 degrees [too high can compromise cannabinoids integrity].
After the decarboxylation process, melt butter together with the herb in a slow cooker or crockpots. A slow steady heat for an extended time is needed to cook cannabutter.
Expect to get a nice looking healthy cannabutter! Ensure that you use organic and premium quality butter. Add salt if you wish to use salted butter but traditional recipes always include unsalted butter.
