Ingredients Needed for Cannabutter
There’s gold in those trims treated as trash. If you grow your own Cannabis or know someone who does, you know that after the harvest of smokable buds there’s a lot of plant material left over.
Don’t throw this away! Although THC is too low to smoke, the psychoactive and medicinal properties can be extracted from it by using fat. This simple water and french coffee press method will enable extraction without the risk of overheating
6 Ingredients&Tools needed for Marrakech Butter
- About 50-70grams of trim, or ‘trash’.
Trash is everything you’re left with after trimming the plant, except the large stems: the leaves, small stems, popcorn buds, etc. Don’t throw this away! Trash contains up to 25% of the THC in the plant. Dry trash can be crumbled very finely for ease of extraction of the medicine in the plant. Alternately, you can freeze it for easy crumbling.
- 250+175g (1 1/2 blocks) of butter.
Use normal, high fat butter. ‘Reduced fat’ and ‘light’ butters won’t work as well. Vegans can use the same amount in coconut oil. Basically, you want a fat that will solidify when it cools down.
- A large cafetiere or French-press coffee maker, preferably one that holds 1litre.
- Large strainer
- Large ~medium pot (5 liters)
- Receptacle (3 liter pot for example)
