Foundation for all endevours

What you'll need:

1 cup of water

1 lb. butter, unsalted

1 oz. high quality lightly ground cannabis bud or trim

Glass or ceramic bowl (refrigerator and heat safe)

Baking Sheet or oven pan


Step 1. Decarboxylate aka bake your bud for 30 mins

Preheat oven to 215 degrees Fahrenheit or 102 degrees Celsius. Be sure the bud is in small pieces. If not, tear into grainy pieces with your hands (don’t overdo it). Spread evenly over the surface of the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.

The 1ststep is called decarboxylation. You are simply heating the cannabis up to release the active natural substances with healing and psychoactive properties. The cannabis will be light brown, dried out, and the active ingredients will be more concentrated.

Step 2. Add butter and water to stove pot, cook on low, throw in the weed

Add 1 lb. of butter and 1 cup of water to your cooking pot and simmer on low. The water will prevent the butter from burning. As the butter melts, add your 1 oz. of ground product. This is a potent Kamnabutter recipe-be careful

Step 3. Simmer 3 hours

Keep the mixture simmering on low for 3 hours stirring occasionally. Make sure it doesn’t reach a boil. Then remove from heat and let it cool to touch

Step 4. Strain out plant material with strainer

Carefully pour the hot mixture into your bowl while straining it to remove all plant substance. You can also use a permanent coffee filter or mesh for straining.

Step 5. Refrigerate for hardening

Cover the mixture and place it in the refrigerator (or freezer) for hardening.

The butter will separate from the water and you will remove it with your spatula or other tool and place it in a storage container for use.

Store the water separately for usage in edible recipes.

When you are ready to use it, let it sit at room temperature if it needs to soften.

The Effects of Kamnabutter

Once you have used your THC butter recipe and it is time to enjoy your creation, you will need some information on how to dose it to get the desired effects.

Dosing: Divide into 28 pieces

*Dosing your Kamnabutter can be tricky. The first mishap people make is taking too much, so this simple trick can be helpful. You have used an ounce of product in this recipe. Therefore, you theoretically have 28 grams of weed in the butter. So, divide your butter into 28 equal pieces, say 4 rows of 7 (if you miscalculate, you can remold the butter and start again). Each piece will have the equivalent effect of 1 gram of weed which is about one large bowl. Beginners will start with half of that or less. The rule is “start low and go slow” for cannabis edibles.

Wait 45 minutes to two hours before redosing. Do not make the mistake of thinking you should take more if you don’t get effects immediately. The effects of edibles start slow and build steadily.

If you eat too much you will be higher than life and it will take some time to come down
