Any recipe that calls for an oil or fat can be modified to use canna oil or canna butter. Start with your favorite dishes and make substitutations according to your taste and medicating preferences.  Need something more foolproof? Instant mixes for brownies and cakes that use oil in the mix are popular and easy. No sweet tooth? No problem! Some patients substitute canna oil for the oils in salad dressings or pastas. There are many bookbooks that specialize in marijuana and we’ll be sharing recipes from our favorites occasionally.  Have fun experimenting with what works and tastes best for you.

You can buy canna oil or butter at your friendly neighborhood mmj co-op or try your hand at making your own.  Here are recipes for the basics to get you started.

CANNA OIL

Ingredients:
2.5 ounces of chopped, dried buds, shake or trim. Use the best you can.
One 48 fluid ounce bottle of canola or olive oil.
Crockpot with a ‘low’ setting
Cheesecloth or other finely woven cloth

Directions:
* Put marijuana in crockpot
* Pour oil over marijuana
* Turn crockpot to ‘low’ and cook for 6-12 hours, stirring frequently
* Turn off crockpot and let cool for 30 minutes
* Place cheesecloth over mouth of glass jar
* Pour oil/marijuana mixture over cloth, straining out plant matter, so only oil enters jar
* Squeeze as much oil out of the cheesecloth as you can, then discard plant matter

You should now have at least 5 cups of amber-tinted cannabis-infused oil, as much as 6 cups if you’re diligent about squeezing out the oil.

 

CANNA BUTTER

Ingredients:
2 ounces of chopped, dried buds, shake or trim. Use the best you can.
2 pounds of unsalted dairy butter or european sweet butter**
Crockpot with a ‘low’ setting
Cheesecloth or other finely woven cloth
Directions:
* Chop the butter into pieces and melt in the crockpot on High.
* Add the marijuana to the crockpot and stir well to mix evenly
* Turn crockpot to ‘low’ and cook for 4-12 hours, stirring frequently
* Turn off crockpot and let cool for 30 minutes
* Place cheesecloth over mouth of glass jar
* Pour butter/marijuana mixture over cloth, straining out plant matter, so only butter enters jar
* Squeeze as much butter out of the cheesecloth as you can, then discard plant matter

**Reqular butter is aprox 80% butterfat compared to 84-86% butterfat for european sweet butters.  Since the butterfat extracts the medicine from Cannibus, you’ll get stronger results using the european butters.

NOTES:

It’s important to make sure that the marijuana you use is fully dried before you begin.
Damp pot contains a high percentage of Carboxyl-THC, a form of THC that is not psychoactive. As the pot dries, the Carboxyl form turns into the “real” THC. Once the pot is dry, it is safe to extract the THC into oil or butter.
