What is canna-butter/oil?
The foundation of cannabutter is cannabis-infused fat, normally in butter but sometimes oil as well. One of the most common recipes is making cannabis coconut oil. There's a couple of steps making them delicious bites.
You could find a few recipes online but for the most part, it's pretty straightforward.
Do research on what strain you'll be using for this. Knowing the potency (THC%) is a good thing to know when making your proportions. Don't want one cookie to knock you on your ass... or do you?
- Preheat your oven to 225* degrees.
- Line a baking sheet or baking dish with parchment paper.
- Break the tree into smaller pieces, and then group them together on the baking surface. DONT mound them on top of one another but keep them close.
- Place in oven for roughly 20 minutes — This is to remove moister inside the tree. The bud will turn slightly brown, and break apart with more ease, once it is dry.
- Remove from oven and raise the temperature to 240 degrees.
- Once the cannabis is cooled enough to handle, break it apart even more and spread it across the baking surface. Try to make them as small as you can. (DONT USE GRINDER)
- Cover baking sheet or dish with tin foil, and seal. Place in the oven for another 50ish minutes. Keep an eye on it.
- Remove from the oven and keep the foil on top of the baking vessel until the cannabis has cooled.
- Take out the cannabis. It might have already broken down into something fine enough to use in recipes. If not, place it in a coffee grinder, blender, or food processor and grind until it’s fairly ground, but be careful — you aren’t seeking a powder here. The texture is more like typical ground oregano or thyme. Now you can use a grinder.
