How to make cbd butter

This recipe is very easy to make and depending on the strength and type of CBD oil you have, you will likely not taste any difference in your butter. Remember to keep it in a separate labeled container so your children do not get into this oil.

If you want to incorporate CBD into more of your daily recipes, the best way to do this is to make CBD infused butter. Once you have CBD butter, you can add it to any recipes that calls for normal butter and replace it with CBD butter. Just always keep in mind that the CBD cooks off if it heats over 350 F so make sure you are using it in recipes that will not go over this temperature.

If you choose to infuse coconut oil, you can make topicals, such as a lip balm or salve. Add a few drops of essential oils for fragrance and you’ve created your own personal CBD-infused topical.

3. Melt the butter slowly on low heat. Slow cookers are best, but a saucepan may also be used to simmer the butter and flower mixture on low heat for several hours.

4. Once the butter or oil is melted and heated, add the ground flower mixture to the pot and stir gently.

CBD-infused butter is a classic beginner recipe that can be used in a variety of foods and recipes. It’s relatively simple to make, and having infused butter on hand is a great way to enjoy the benefits of CBD from the comfort of your kitchen. For those looking to incorporate CBD into their diet or daily regimen, making CBD butter from scratch is an excellent way to do it.

Your homemade CBD oil or butter will last up to two months in the fridge and as long as six months in the freezer.

For the purists, full fat, unsalted sticks of butter are the number one choice for CBD-infused butter. However, for vegans or those who are more health-conscious, coconut oil is a perfectly acceptable alternative. As mentioned earlier, you may substitute various types of oils for a more viscous final product better suited to your health or cooking needs.

If you choose to infuse oil instead of butter, you can use it as a tincture, dosing with a teaspoon at a time. As with anything infused, start low and go slow for best results. Start with a teaspoon or less and gradually increase the amount you consume until you find the right dose for you.
