Cannabutter and edibles
Cannabis-infused butter (cannabutter) is one of the simplest and most common ways to make infused cannabis edibles. Edible forms of cannabis, including food products, lozenges, and capsules, can produce effective, long-lasting, and safe effects. Most edibles contain a significant amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC-dominant edibles are consumed for recreational and medical purposes and can induce a wide range of effects.
We recommend using unsalted butter if you are planning to use the cannabutter within 7 days. Alternatively, salted butter will last longer in the refrigerator. Add lecithin when making cannabutter as an emulsifier. Emulsifiers are additives that help two liquids mix. For example, water and oil separate in a glass, but adding an emulsifier will help the liquids mix together.
Decarboxylating – A critical first step to edibles
Before making your cannabutter, you’ll need to decarboxylate, or “decarb”, the cannabis flower you’re working with. Skipping this step will result in a weak or inactive finished product. Here’s why: Cannabis buds produce a non-intoxicating acidic cannabinoid called THCA. When we smoke or vaporize cannabis, the heat converts THCA into THC, the molecule that delivers euphoric effects. If preparing CBD edibles, this same process should be applied.
Some recipes may instruct you to decarb cannabis in the hot butter directly, but the less time you spend soaking the buds, the better your infused butter is going to taste. For this reason, we recommend decarbing in the oven first.
Test the potency of your cannabutter before making edibles
Cooking at home with cannabis does not have to be a game of Russian Roulette. It is important, especially if trying a new recipe, to test the octane! You can be brave and take a teaspoon to test the strength of your infusion, but wait an hour and make sure the dose is not too strong. Alternatively, be sure of the dose and use a tCheck Infusion Potency Tester.
