This recipe pro­duces a small amount of cannabis-​​infused butter, or can­nabutter, which can be used in a massive range of recipes to add that extra kick! If your recipe requires more butter than the amounts given here, feel free to mul­tiply up all the amounts.


  • 4oz (115g) Butter or Margarine
  • 1/​8oz (3.5g) Can­nabis buds/​hash OR
  • 1/​4oz (7g) Can­nabis leaves


  • Small saucepan
  • Wooden spoon
  • Sieve (optional)


  1. Melt the butter slowly in a pan. Add 1⁄8 oz (3.5g) finely ground can­nabis, and simmer on a low heat for around 30 minutes. This allows the can­nabis to infuse fully into the butter. Take care to keep the heat low, and stir con­tinu­ously as the butter can burn easily.

  2. After 30 minutes, pour the butter into a jug or tub. As you do this, if you want to remove the bud/​hash/​leaf, you can pass it through a fine sieve. You won’t be wasting any “good stuff”, since all the THC should have dis­solved into the butter, but if you don’t mind getting green bits in your teeth, you can just as easily leave it in.

  3. Allow the can­nabutter to set for around an hour, or until rel­at­ively hard, before using. (Best done in the fridge).
