Proper storage of butter is also key. Just like any other butter, kief butter is very perishable and should be stored in cool and dry places, most preferably inside the refrigerators. You should also seal the container after use.
Kief butter is easy to make, therefore, it is cheaper and easily available compared to other marijuana products. It also provides a safe and convenient way to consume cannabis without worrying.

The best way to maintain the heat during the infusion process is by doing it in boiling water as temperatures can be maintained at a constant level.
Kief butter like all other chewable marijuana products has numerous benefits over smoking and vaping. Here are some of the benefits of using cannabis butter;
Raw marijuana does not contain THC cannabinoids at all, the THC compound exists in its inactive form of THC-A. Decarbing is the process of breaking the Acid part of THC-A, a process which activates the THC compound. THC compound is responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
The Cannabis Sativa strain is popular for its high levels of THC than its cousin Cannabis Indica. Oil and butter can decarb your kief by dissolving THC but it is not as effective as heating.

Like all the good things, Kief butter has its risks, remember it is a drug. You can also make mistakes during preparation. Here are some common mistakes that most people make;
Kief is a highly concentrated form of cannabis. It is made by filtering ground cannabis herbs and separating the resins on the buds from the fibers.
Before making the kief butter, you must first decarboxylate the kief.
I am a chef in Seattle. Specifically, I am a chef instructor for the public. I teach at my home in Capitol Hill, and also travel around the state to teach people how to cook in their own homes. I want food to taste good, not just get you stoned (although that is a pleasurable side-effect).
The liners will pop right off, are reusable, and each one is naturally 1/4 cup = 4 Tbsps, leaving it incredibly easy to measure for your next recipe. This butter will stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.
This kief butter is very versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes, including any baked good or in any low heat (below 250F) preparation.
I design cannabis-cooking classes and recipes with the taste of the food, and the aromatic terpenes of cannabis in mind. If you don’t already know, terpenes are what provide the very distinct odor and flavor to each cannabis plant. There are a variety of scents associated with different terpenes, including berry, mint, pine, citrus…and even cheese. Although each strain contains a resident terpene combination which lends itself to certain flavors, I have found (so far) that a light concentration of terpenes goes well with many flavors.
Making edibles at home is all about experimenting, and learning what works best for you. Start with baking for 10 minutes and eating a low dose when you prepare a treat. For a stronger butter, use ¼ cup or ¼ pound when preparing. For a lighter dose use 1 cup or 1 lb. Novice users should wait 90 minutes after consuming the first dose, before considering having some more.
Once decarboxylated, the THC in the kief is active, as in psychoactive, meaning it will now produce the euphoric feeling most commonly described as being “high.” This same procedure can also be used to decarb hash oil, shatter, or wax.
Each time you cook with cannabis, write down what you did in step-by-step format. Include how much you consumed and what the strength or dosage was. Also, keep notes on how you felt each time so that you can adjust dosing to understand your comfort levels.
Before the days of legalization, many methods or techniques for making cannabutter had no real basis in cooking, as the primary goal was simply to infuse a fat with THC. The most commonly used methods generally stink up your living space, turned the butter an unsavory green or brown color, and had a terribly strong cannabis flavor. Nobody needs that concentration of terpenes in their food!
