  • 1 ounce/28 grams of decarbed cannabis buds or shake.  If using leaves or stems, use 2 ounces or 56 grams. (Learn how to decarboxylate your cannabis by clicking here)

  • 1 pound/450500 grams of unsalted butter or ghee (ghee uses no water causing the THC to be better absorbed allowing for a more potent end product)

  • 2 cups of water

Kitchen Tools:

  • Cheesecloth

  • Grinder

  • 2 large bowls


  1. Chop the butter or ghee into small cubes and place them into the slow cooker on warm or low heat. If using butter, add 2 cups of water to the butter in the crockpot. Stir occasionally while waiting for the butter or ghee to melt completely.

  2. Once the butter or ghee is completely melted stir the cannabis into the crockpot making sure to get all the kief.

  3. Tightly cover and cook on the lowest setting to not exceed 220F cook more than 6 hours, but not to exceed 24 hours.

  4. Place a double-folded cheesecloth over the top of a large bowl or container and secure with rubber bands.

  5. Pour the cannabutter into the bowl or container, filtering out all the plant material in the cannabutter.

  6. Squeeze out any remaining butter from the cheesecloth. Your hands will be dripping in cannabutter, so prepare yourself in any way you see fit. If cooking for others, please use latex-free rubber gloves.

  7. Pour the butter into desired cannabutter shapes or leave in the bowl or container and refrigerate until the cannabutter solidifies.

  8. Once your cannabutter has solidified, there will be some separation.  Pour out the excess liquid from the butter.

The cannabutter is now ready for consumption on a slice of toast, grilled cheese, or any other recipe you may want to try that uses butter.
