Believe it or not, the 1 gram cannabutter recipe is real and it works! So, a few weeks back I got my hands on some pretty potent Lemon OG Kush- 2 grams of flower to be exact. Rolling one gram up into a nice joint, I sat leisurely and well-medicated in my kitchen thinking, "Maybe I can make cannabutter with this 1 gram that I have".
Me being the need-to-know-it-all that I am, I made sure to do some research before cheffing up this marvelous 1 gram cannabutter batch. Unsurprisingly, nothing conclusive came up for my results. Matter of fact, most people denounced that a 1 gram cannabutter recipe even exists# Well, today I'm going to let you in on a little secret- it does and here's the suggested recipe. Before I get started keep in mind: any good recipe requires diligence, patience, and awareness of ingredient ratios. These three principles are not to be taken lightly! Once again, they are not to be taken lightly! So here is what you are going to need:
Put your butter in the saucepan at medium-low heat. As the butter begins to melt, mix in your ground flowers/leaves. At this point, the butter may begin to reduce at an exceptionally fast rate. This is when you slowly pour in the 1/4 cup of water so that your butter doesn't burn on you. Now that you have your butter, flower, and water coming to a boil, lower the heat to a gentle flame so that your mixture can simmer. Keep in mind that our proportions are small, so timing is everything. If you are using one gram of flower, let the mixture simmer for 30 minutes with frequent stirring. If you are using 2 grams of flower, let your mixture simmer for an 1 hour-1 1/2 hours. Although I don't know the exact science behind these ratios, I found that in my controlled environment they worked best. After the first 15 minutes, you should begin to see the hue of the butter turn from gold to a murky brown. Try avoiding a black hue, this may mean that you are burning your flower and butter, if so either reduce the heat or add no more than 2 tablespoons of water.
Now that your mixture is ready for straining, put your cheese cloth (highly recommended) or dense paper towel over a bowl. Here, I would suggest either having someone hold the cloth with relatively tightness so that the weight of the butter doesn't force the cloth to cave in on the bowl. Or if you have a rubber band or and elastic object, wrap it over the cloth after the cloth is placed on the bowl. Now, slowly pour your mixture into the bowl covered by the cloth. I repeat. slowly pour your mixture into the bowl covered by the cloth! If you simply dump your mixture into the covered bowl, you may run the risk of collapsing the cloth into the bowl. If some of the reduced flower gets onto the cloth that's fine just be super delicate when wringing the cloth out so that the you dont tear the cloth and your flowers end up in your butter. Now, you should have a few results at this point:
Hopefully this 1 gram cannabutter recipe works just as well for you as it did for me! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask and I will be sure to address them ASAP. Enjoy!
