Recipes: Cannabis Butter, Oil and Milk

By Robert Bergman, ILoveGrowingMarijuana.com

Most marijuana recipes require marijuana butter. It is very easy to make and it can be used in place of normal butter. Another advantage is that it can also be made of marijuana leaves. butterEspecially the small leaves close to the flowers contain a lot of resin.

In order to make the THC in marijuana active it has to be heated in some way. Normally it is done by smoking it but it can also be eaten. THC resolves in fat, not in water. So it’s important to use fat if you’re cooking with marijuana. Oil, milk and butter are perfect to resolve THC and are used in many recipes. Simply replace the normal butter or oil with the prepared one.

Eating cannabis is different from smoking. In the end the effects are the same but when you smoke marijuana the effects are noticeable gradually. When eating marijuana the effects take some time to be noticeable but it comes suddenly. So try a little bit and wait some time before taking more because it might take up to 45 minutes before you feel anything…

 

-Marijuana butter

100 grams of butter [Editor's note: If you're vegan, try solidified coconut oil, or Earth's Balance vegan butter.]
100 ml of water
100 grams of grinded leaves or 5 grams of grinded weed

Heat the water and the butter together in a sauce pan. Add the grinded leaves or weed and stir it through the mixture. Let it simmer for 30 minutes and stir occasionally. Pour the mixture through a strainer to remove the marijuana. Put the pan in the refrigerator so the butter will solidify at the top of the water. Discard the water and your marijuana butter is ready to use for your cakes, brownies and cookies.

-Marijuana cooking oil

100 ml of vegetable oil (like olive or sunflower)
50 grams of grinded marijuana leaves or 5 grams of grinded weed

It’s also very easy to make THC-containing oil. Add the leaves or buds to the oil and heat it up. Make sure it doesn’t get to hot otherwise the marijuana will fry. Heat it for 2 or 3 hours and stir occasionally. Let it cool and then strain the oil. It can be used for any recipe that calls for vegetable oil like mayonnaise or dressing.

-Marijuana milk or cream

100 ml of milk or cream [If you're vegan, try using coconut cream.]
50 grams of grinded leaves or 5 grams of grinded weed

Heat up the milk or cream in a sauce pan bot don’t let it boil. Add the leaves or the weed and stir it gently. Let the mixture simmer for half an hour and don’t let it boil. Stir every now and then. Put the milk through a strainer and let it cool down. Use your milk in milkshakes or ice cream.

    Another method is to use clarified butter or ghee (butter that has all the milk solids removed) The milk solids will give the cannabutter a bitter taste. Heat just the butter in a sauce pan over low heat until melted then skim off the solids that form on the top. Pour the liquid into a glass bowl or Tupperware container to cool. Once cool and hard, remove the block from the dish and remove any milky liquid. I also scrape away any cloudy butter at the bottom which leaves pure clarified butter. This is remelted and cooked with trim or finely ground bud to make your favorite cannabutter. Stems and larger plant material means you steep your butter longer. I steep my butter around 2 to 3 hours in a double boiler so that the butter doesn’t get too hot yet still gets the last of the resin. To test the potency, I make a single batch of Betty Crocker peanut butter cookies. I eat one, wait an hour and then another. Once I determined the potency, I can make whatever goodie I want. Also, if you use a vaporizer, the vaped weed is good to use as well but may not have same the potency. However, it gives the butter a toasty, nutty quality that’s real tasty.

    Can you can one make anything with the stuff over in the cheese cloth? Or dose one just trash it?

    Hi – can you tell me how much 50 grams of trim is? I can’t seem to find an answer anywhere, but it sounds like a ton of leaves. Thanks.

      50 grams is 6 grams shy of 2 full ounces

    Love the recipes. I make cannabutter all the time! I’m actually in the process of making 1 year aged canna oil. I’ll let you know how that goes! Anyway, thanks for the great recipes. Ohh and Pam, it really depends on the strain and how finely ground the leaf is. If the strain is higher in crystal content, each leaf will be heavier. If the leaf is ground finely, more weight will fit into a smaller area. I guest the easiest way to explain what I’m saying here is the best way to tell what 50 grams of your trim looks like is to throw it on a scale and weigh it out.

    if i get to grow my 6 plants how much will i yield?

    lot depends on the grower. Is it grown indoors or outdoors? How much nutrients u feed and how often. What strains are u growing? What medium are u using dirt or hydro? From my experiences A good yield indoors is 4 ozs per plant 1 1/2 lbs for 6 is a great yield indoors. Outdoors I have gotten up to 5 lb per plant. I just started light and hard stress training, topping, super cropping, and scroging. Our last yield indoors was 1/2 lb per plant. This next yield will be even larger. Experimentation and learning from your experiments is the key to higher yields. Plus u have alot of growing videos on you-tube on increasing yields. I’m trying the 1 pound stress training method will let u know in 4 months how much more yield we get if it works.

    i extract the thc oil ( hash oil or phoenix tears it goes by any of these 3 names) from the trim. Then i infuse it into butter, olive or coconut oil, or just use it for treatment of cancer a size of the grain of rice is one dose. The oil can be used many ways doing it this way.

    I don’t understand the reason behind using water in the making of cana-butter (or in my case-coconut oil). I put the oil in the double boiler and when it’s all melted I add in the herb –all ground up in a powder. I stir it and let it simmer on the double boiler for hours. The longer the steep, the better the flavor. After it cools I line a mesh screen with cheese cloth and pour the oil through. I wring out the cheese cloth, dump the spent greenery into the compost bucket, rinse the cheesecloth and store the oil till its solid. Pretty sea green and very potent.

      The water is just there to prevent it from burning, once you cool the butter or oil it will separate from the water, and you can dump it. :)
