Once you have the right potency for yourself and you’ve made your canna-butter, you can use that information to determine how much of your custom canna-butter to use for your various recipes. A more mild canna-butter may require a teaspoon for your smoothie, but a very potent butter would use much less. There will be some trial-and-error involved so you’ll want to start in smaller increments no matter which food or drink you’re making.
As the cannabis edibles market appears poised for continuous expansion , it really shouldn’t be any big surprise that cannabis and butter could make a delightful pairing. It is the versatility of butter that gives canna-butter wide appeal. It can be used in any recipe requiring butter, whether simply adding it to toast or making a more involved meal such as lemon butter chicken . With butter being a kitchen staple, canna-butter can serve as the foundation of many homemade edibles recipes — including the ever-popular chocolate brownie.
Quality is always important to keep in mind when you are using cannabis – especially if you’ll be eating it. Many states that have legalized adult-use or medical cannabis require laboratory testing as part of licensing for marijuana dispensaries – but not all of them do. If your state does not yet require laboratory testing, make sure the cannabis you purchase is third-party tested.
Butter is one of those ingredients that seems to make any meal better.
Quality counts for the butter you buy, too.
One gram of cannabis flower is equal to 1,000 milligrams. If the cannabis flower you’re using tests at 15% THC, then using 1 gram will produce 150 milligrams of THC. With 3.5 grams of flower, it will make 525 milligrams of THC.
Flower is essentially cannabis buds , which have the most cannabinoids . To decarboxylate (or decarb) simply means to heat the marijuana flower in order to turn the non-intoxicating tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) into the intoxicating delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) . This step is required when cannabis is ingested rather than smoked.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to eating canna-butter. For non-cooking types, just toast some bread and spread the canna-butter right on. For hobbyist chefs, there are a number of cannabis cookbooks and fun recipes to explore.
