I recommend trimmings, because you can smoke your buds!!

What you’ll need:

  • Trimming
  • 1 lb of butter (4 sticks)
  • cheese cloth for straining
  • water
  • crock pot

My procedure goes like this;

  1. Freeze trimming for at least 24 hours. I personally put my trimmings into the freezer as soon as I’m done the trimming process.

  2. Put butter into crock-pot and turn the crock pot on to the low setting.

  3. Add 2 cups of water to the crock-pot. This is to make sure the butter never gets over heated and helps to evenly cook with the plant material. The butter and water will separate once they cool.

  4. Add trimmings to the butter once the butter is melted. Stir well.

  5. Let sit in the crock-pot for at least 10 hours. I usually do a 12-18 hour cook in the crock-pot (I start it mid-day, and then the next day when I wake up I will strain the trimming from the butter and put into the refrigerator). Make sure to stir occasionally!

  6. Strain the butter from the trimmings. Use cheese cloth for this, and make sure to fold it over itself a couple times to make sure you have a good strainer! I strain the butter directly into a mason jar, then into the refrigerator. This way, it is measured in the jar, and easy to open and use.

  7. Sit in the refrigerator until the butter has hardened and the butter and water will have separated from each other. Now you can just dump the water out and the butter will be left behind!

And there you go, there’s my procedure for how I make my cannabutter. This same procedure works great for buds and concentrates as well. No need to decarb your weed if you do it this way.
