How Long To Cook Cannabutter?
At least 6 hours. We’ve let Cannabutter cook anywhere from 3 to 12 hours and found that the best results came when letting the herb and butter infuse for at least 6 hours.
Place your butter in the crock pot on medium heat.
Once the butter is liquefied feel free to stir in your Cannabis (optional: you could grind down your cannabis so that it is more easily saturated)
After your butter and Cannabis are combined, add 2 cups of water and set to low heat. Allow to infuse for at least 3 hrs with this method.
After a maximum of 12 hours, remove your butter from heat and strain it through a cheese cloth and a fine mesh strainer into a container.
Place in your refrigerator to cool and set for about an hour.
Once your butter is set and has separated from the water. Drain the excess water and your butter is ready to enjoy.
