Make cannabis butter
So before we start making a delicious pasta sauce, let's first show you how to make cannabis butter. As soon as you have cannabis butter, it is very easy to add this butter to all kinds of dishes. So let's cook!
Put some butter in a saucepan and put it on a medium low heat. Now add an amount of cannabis. It works best with flower tops. Remember that the amount you add directly influences how strong the butter will ultimately be. This also applies to the strength of the plant material that you use. If you use a strain with a high THC content, your butter will also become stronger. All you have to do is to keep your patience. It is important that you let the pan simmer for at least 2 hours on a small fire. The decarboxylation process is best done at a relatively low temperature (around 110 degrees). At this temperature, the carboxylic acid is removed from the THCA via a chemical process. This way you get THC and that is actively added to the butter. If you were to consume the butter now it would have a psychoactive effect. Be careful not to let the butter get too hot, because then the THC will burn and it will have less strong effects. Leave the butter with the plant material on the fire for 2 hours and then pass it through a sieve. This leaves the raw plant material on the sieve, and you have your home-made cannabis butter in your pan! When the butter cools, it will solidify, and you can add it to all kinds of dishes. You go, master chef!
