What You’ll Need to Make CBD Butter.

- 1 16 oz mason jar
- Medium pot
Additional items that will make the process easier:
Once you have your items collected, you can move on to the step by step process.
Step by Step
Take your CBD flower and grind it into small pieces. You can also break the flower up by hand with similar results.
Add the butter and water into your medium-sized saucepot and bring to a light simmer. The water will prevent the butter from burning. Make sure to keep the temperature low enough not to boil though. Even though the water will make burning the butter more difficult, it can still happen. Keeping the temperature low will prevent any unwanted browning of the butter.
Once your butter/water mixture is simmering, add your ground up CBD Flower. Let the entire mixture simmer for 3 hours stirring every 15-30 minutes.
After your mixture has simmered for 3 hours, take off the heat and strain the mixture using the cheesecloth to filter out any unwanted plant matter. Name brand mason jars won’t crack when hot liquid is poured directly into them. They also have nifty tops with holes in them so you can secure your cheesecloth using just the lids.
Put your CBD butter into the refrigerator and let it harden.
