Cannabis butter

Today I collected the dried cannabis from my basement and divided the dried branches in small usable parts. These little parts I stored in an airtight box. Still I have quite some leftovers from the big plants I had. These leftovers I will use to make a cannabis butter, which can be used to make a nice cake with a special effect.

The procedure:
The active ingredient of cannabis is called THC and does not dissolve in water. It does however dissolve in animal fat. This is the characteristic we use to make cannabis butter. Make sure you use real butter. Use four times as much butter as the weight of the leaves or plants rests that you want to use. First clean the leaves and the plant parts to make sure it does not contain dust or other contaminants. Put all the leaves and plant parts in a big pan with water and let it slowly cook for about an hour. Add the butter and let it slowly cook for another hour.

Now throw the soup through a sieve and collect the liquid in a second pan. Rinse the sieve with left over plant residue with hot water to collect the ultimate parts of butter and collect all the liquid in the second pan. You can now throw away the plant residue. Put the second pan with the liquid in a cold place like the balcony or in the fridge. After a while the butter will solidify on the surface. Probably the butter will be colored differently and appear much more green. After all the butter has solidified use a spoon to take out the butter and store it in a little jar. You can store this cannabis butter up to months in the fridge.
