Canna Camp's Easy Cannabutter

Welcome back Canna Campers! In this week’s Base Camp blog, we will be making Canna Butter!

While writing one of our upcoming recipes it dawned on us that you may not know how to make Cannabutter, we often include it in other recipes but thought it was best to have a stand-alone blog post dedicated to the subject for easy retrieval!

Canna Camp’s Easy Cannabutter


1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup ground cannabis flower (decarboxylated)



Decarboxylate the Cannabis:

Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).

Spread the ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cannabis turns golden brown. This process activates the cannabinoids for infusion.


Infuse the Butter:

In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat until it's fully liquid.

Add the decarboxylated cannabis to the melted butter.

Simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Ensure the mixture does not boil; low heat is crucial to avoid burning off the cannabinoids.

The butter will become infused with cannabinoids during this process.


Strain and Cool:

Once infused, remove the saucepan from heat and let the mixture cool slightly.

Place a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth over a bowl or jar.

Pour the infused butter through the strainer to separate the plant material from the liquid Cannabutter.

Press the plant material with a spoon to extract all the butter.

Let the Cannabutter cool at room temperature, then refrigerate it until it solidifies.



Store your homemade Cannabutter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month, or freeze it for longer-term storage.

Now you have homemade Canna Butter ready to use in various cannabis-infused recipes!

Adjust the potency by varying the amount of cannabis used or the duration of the infusion.

Make sure to clearly label the container, Keep away from children, and ensure everyone who wants to try anything prepared with it, knows they are infused! (It’s not fun to be medicated when you don’t want to be.) And remember this is homemade so potency will vary so take your time!

That wraps up this Base Camp blog! Check back for a special recipe coming soon!
