How to Make Cannabis Butter in a Crock-Pot

Making cannabis butter is a relatively simple and cost-effective way to medicate with cannabis. The best part? It’s made in a crock-pot. Here’s how you can make your own delicious cannabis-infused butter.

What You’ll Need

  • One cup of cannabis flower or ½ cup of cannabis trim
  • One pound of unsalted butter
  • A four-quart crock-pot
  • One cup of cold water
  • Cheese cloth, sieve, or strainer


  • Grind the cannabis. Before you begin, you’ll need to grind your cannabis. Try to make the grind as fine as possible. This will help the THC to release more effectively into your butter.
  • Combine the ingredients. Place the butter and cannabis into your crock-pot, then add the cold water. Set the crock-pot on low heat.
  • Stir occasionally. Give your mixture a stir every 15-20 minutes to ensure the butter and cannabis don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Simmer. Let your butter simmer for a few hours. The longer it simmers, the more potent your butter will be. Stir it every now and then to make sure everything is mixing properly.
  • Separate the butter. After a few hours, your butter should be ready. Using a cheese cloth, sieve, or strainer, separate the butter from the cannabis. Try not to leave any of the plant material in the butter.
  • Enjoy! Your cannabis-infused butter is now ready to use! Store it in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to two months or freeze for longer storage times. Enjoy!

Making cannabis butter in a crock-pot is a great way to make efficient use of your cannabis flower or trim. With a few simple ingredients and a few hours of time, you can make your own cannabis butter that is perfect for baking, cooking, or just enjoying on its own!
