Butter Extract


Butter extracts are the favored way to concentrate CBD for cooking. Butter does a fine job extracting CBD. You can extract more CBD with butter than with alcohol extracts using 80 proof liquor. Butter extracts are about 80% as potent as the hemp flower they are made from. Butter extracts are also inexpensive and easy to make. Because butter can be used so easily in cooking, it can easily be integrated into countless recipes of your choice. The recipes on this site are just a small sample of the possibilities.


5 cups of water; 10 grams of ground Raw Hemp Flower (decarboxylated); 1 pound of butter (2 cups); note: For each additional 2.5 grams of Hemp Flower, add 1/4 pound of butter (1/2 cup), and 1 cup of water.


First, heat 5 cups of water while adding the 10 grams of hemp flower and 1 pound of butter. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer on low heat for 1.5-2 hours. Stir occasionally. Strain the mix, retaining the liquid. A baby food sieve or potato ricer is helpful in pressing out the butter and water that remains in the plant material. Boil 2 cups of water and pour over the plant material to remove any leftover butter. Press again. Let the mixture set until the butter and water separate. The liquid is then put in the refrigerator or for faster processing, in the freezer. When cooled, the butter and pot will congeal on top of the water. Collect the hardened butter extract and refrigerate. Discard the water. Always refrigerate after making. It will keep for more than a month.
