How to Make Cannabutter in a Crock Pot

Cannabutter is an effective and easy-to-make cannabis-infused cooking oil. It can be used to make all sorts of mouth-watering edibles such as brownies, cookies and cakes. Making cannabutter in a crock pot is a popular way to make it, as it allows the butter to slowly infuse with the cannabis flavor. Here’s how to do it.


  • 1 lb butter
  • 1/2 – 1 oz (14 – 28 grams) cannabis flower
  • 4 cups of water


  • Prepare your cannabis: Use scissors or a grinder to break your cannabis into small, evenly ground pieces.
  • Add ingredients to the crock pot: Add the butter and cannabis to your pot, along with 4 cups of water.
  • Cook: Cook on low heat for at least 5 hours, stirring occasionally. The longer you let the butter simmer, the more potent your cannabutter will be.
  • Strain: Strain the cannabutter through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a clean bowl. The mixture will separate into butter and cannabis water.
  • Store: Allow the cannabutter mixture to cool completely before transferring it to a airtight container for storage.
