Cannabis infused butter, otherwise known as cannabutter, is a primary ingredient in many marijuana-infused recipes. Technically infused cannabis butter is an ‘extraction’ because the cannabinoids and terpenes are extracted from the cannabis plant and infused into the butter’s fat. The butter from a normal recipe is then substituted with cannabutter to produce psychoactive effects.
Cannabis butter is often used in decadent edible recipes (such as brownies) but ultimately depends on the cook and their personal preferences / dietary needs. It can be made from dried cannabis buds, trim, solvent-less hash, or even sugar leaf.
