How to Make a Small Batch of Cannabutter

2.) Place the Cannabis foil pouch in a preheated oven at 250 degrees F for 30 mins.

3.) Remove the pouch from the oven, open the pouch slowly and your Marijuana buds should look toasty and a bit more dry and brown. Ground-up your weed using the Grinder.

4.) In the heat-safe measuring cup, add in your regular butter and position in the middle of the water bath or the double boiler over low-medium heat.

5.) Add in your ground up Cannabis buds and make sure they are all submerged in the butter.

6.) Let the Small Batch Cannabutter mixture boil for 60 minutes and stir occasionally. Also, make sure that the water bath does not boil out.

7.) Prepare your strainer by lining it with a coffee filter and placing it over a bowl.

8.) Pour over your Small Batch Cannabutter mixture and allow it to drip for a few moments. Twist the top of the coffee filter to make a pouch and squeeze all the Cannabutter goodness out of the raw marijuana buds.

9.) Pour your Small Batch Cannabutter into the rubber mold or a small container and put it in the fridge overnight to settle and solidify. Viola! You now have your own Small Batch Cannabutter ready for use on your next Marijuana Cooking Book Edibles Recipe! Enjoy!
