The amount of Weed for 1 stick of butter is a personal choice, influenced by the effects you would like to achieve.
It may be a bit daunting when making Cannabutter for the first time; however, if you’re following these simple guidelines, it’s easy:
Always start low and slow
The strain will determine the potency
Edibles take longer to digest and get absorbed in your bloodstream, so be careful not to overindulge
What’s A Good Weed/Butter Ratio?
Our recommended ratio for beginners is 1/8 – ¼ ounce per 1 stick of butter.
Making Cannabutter is time-consuming, and we suggest you consider making a larger batch to justify the time and energy used.
When making smaller batches for home use, stick to ¼ – ½ oz to 2 sticks of butter, depending on your tolerance level.
1.5 Grams Weed For 1 Stick Of Butter
1,5grams of Weed for 1 stick of butter will result in a very weak Cannabutter.
The strain composition will determine the potency and effects on your Endocannabinoid System.
However, we recommend 3.5g (or 1/8 oz) of Weed to 1 stick of butter for noticeable reaction and benefitting from the vital health benefits.
Using Cannabis Concentrates when making Cannabutter is a different consideration but not recommended for novice Weed users.
7 Grams Of Weed To 1 Pound Of Butter
Using 7 grams (¼ ounce) of Weed to 1 pound (4 sticks) of butter will deliver a similar potency to 1,5 grams of Weed for 1 stick of butter.
Don’t expect any great shakes; it will be very mild, and you may not get as many health benefits as you’d hoped. Our recommended starting ratio is 7 grams (¼ ounces) to 2 sticks of butter.
1 Gram Cannabutter Recipe
1 gram of Weed will make very little (or very weak) Cannabutter. Making Cannabis Butter at home takes time and needs your close attention; therefore, it’s better to make larger quantities at a time and store it in the fridge or freezer.
1 gram of Weed Concentrate, on the other hand, to 1 stick of butter will deliver a potent Cannabutter. It will provide a similar potency to using 7 grams or ¼ ounce Weed to 1 stick of butter. Keep in mind the strength and effects will depend on the strain composition.
How To Dose Homemade Cannabis Edibles
Edibles take longer to absorb as they must be metabolized through the stomach and your liver before feeling the desired effects. This process may take up to 60 minutes and can last up to 6 hours.
Dosing is key. Follow our easy-to-use Edible Dosage Calculator to guide you through this process.
Don’t Forget To Decarboxylate
Decarboxylation or decarbing your Weed is an essential step when making any edibles. Whether you’re using flower, concentrate, or Kief, this is a step not to be skipped.
How Potency Of Your Flower Affects Your Homemade Cannabutter
The Cannabis plant contains many compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and trichomes. Each of these compounds affects the potency, taste, smell, and effects.
The strength of your Weed is directly related to the potency of your Cannabutter.
If you want to make the best Cannabutter, it is essential to know how the potency of your flower affects it.
