How to Make Cannabutter or Oil from Nugs
You will need:
- 7-10g of nugs
- 1 cup of butter or coconut oil
- Double boiler
- Airtight container
The first step is to decarboxylate the cannabis. The psychoactive effects of cannabis are unlocked during this procedure; otherwise, the plant would do nothing.
Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C). Cut your nugs into little pieces and spread them evenly over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until all the nugs are crumbly and brownish. If required, add 5-10 minutes to this baking time.
For the infusion, grind your decarboxylated nugs. You’ll be filtering out the nugs later, so you don’t want them to be too fine. In a double boiler on low heat, combine your decarboxylated ground cannabis and oil or butter. Simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
When it’s done, it should be green. Remove from the heat and filter the mixture through a cheesecloth into an airtight container, then let it cool down and store it in a fridge or freezer.
What Is the Proper Dose?
Try putting 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon cannabutter on a cracker or snack and seeing how you respond. This might take 30 minutes to 2 hours for the impact to be noticeable. After that, you may personalize the amount as desired.
Once you find the ideal amount of cannabutter for your dose, you may use it as a standard dosage for all sorts of edibles. The strength of homemade butter varies based on a variety of factors, such as how long and hot it was cooked, the temperature, the potency of your nugs, the strain of cannabis, etc.
