Medical Marijuana Butter (Cannabutter)
Quick and Easy Marijuana Butter or (Cannabutter)
The great thing about this cannabutter is that it can be used in such a wide variety of recipes. Many great recipes call for butter or oil and cannabutter can be replaced with both.
To prepare and make cannabutter you will need:
1 pound of butter ( salted or unsalted )
1 to 2 ounces of marijuana ( leaves & trimmings )
1 quarter ounce of marijuana (buds)
1 fairly fine strainer ( or screen, pantyhose)
1 large cooking pot (crock-pot or electric skillet)
1 gallon of water
Put the water into the cooking pot and add the marijuana. Cook the concoction until it is simmering, then add the butter (cutting it into pieces first).
Simmer in the pot for 2 – 3 hours, and wait until most all of the water evaporates, while you stir it on occasion
(This process will create quite a strong aroma of marijuana. Remember to cook the cannabutter while you are not expecting company.)
Let the concoction cool for 30 minutes to an hour, then strain all of the contents of the pot into a bowl and place it in refrigerator.
(Depending on your preference, the contents of the pot can be strained several times. Each additional straining produces a finer and higher grade of cannabutter )
When the strained mixture is cold and mostly in a solid form ( 30 – 60 minutes ), then remove the cannabutter from the refrigerator and pour the remaining water off of the top, thus leaving the butter intact and whole. Put the cannabutter in the microwave for roughly 30 – 60 seconds, until the cannabutter is soft enough to move into a storage container.
Keep the cannabutter stored in the refrigerator for a month or so or you can keep it longer if you freeze it.
* This recipe makes 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups of fantastic cannabutter.
Medical Marijuana Fire Crackers
To prepare and make firecrackers you will need:
¼ to a half of a cup of all natural peanut butter
8 cracker of your choice example (saltine crackers)
1 gram of finely ground cannabis
Marijuana fire crackers can serve as an excellent party treat. It I best to use an all natural 100% peanut butter because the processed peanut butter tends to loose many of the essential peanut oils needed to metabolize the THC. This is a two person recipe yielding around two firecrackers per person.
You will want to allocate no more then a gram of marijuana in bud form to each marijuana fire cracker. It is suggested to eat one to two crackers and wait 30 minutes to an hour before ingesting additional crackers. The reason being is that the ingestion time can take longer than the desired or actual effect time. If you eat too much too quickly then you become over medicated.
Spread the all natural 100% peanut butter on four of the crackers. Sprinkle each peanut butter cracker with 1/4 gram of pot (marijuana) on the top and cover them with the remaining crackers to make four fire cracker sandwiches.
Once the fire crackers are prepared then preheat the oven to 325° F. Wrap the fire cracker sandwiches in foil (optional), then place on a baking pan or sheet. Bake the fire crackers for 20-25 minutes and then remove them from oven to the refrigerator for another 20-30 minutes. This is really all there is to making firecrackers. You can add jelly or other things to jazz this recipe up a bit. Bake safe and enjoy!
Medical Marijuana Banana Bread
This is a favorite amongst my friends and we usually use it for morning medication. Be sure to use ripe bananas with black spots on the peel. The prep time is usually 13 minutes and the bake time is usually around one hour an twenty five minutes. This recipe will make one loaf of marijuana banana bread.
To prepare and make Marijuana Banana Bread you will need:
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
10 tablespoons of Cannabutter (see recipe for cannabutter above)
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 ripe bananas (with black spots on the peel)
½ cup of sour cream
Preheat the oven to 350 F and adjust the rack to the lower middle level. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with more cannabutter. Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set it aside.
Cream the cannabutter and sugar in a large bowl with a hand held or preferably a electric mixer until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Then, Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the vanilla, bananas and sour cream until well mixed. Gradually add the flour to the wet mixture and stir until it is well mixed.
Transfer the batter to the pan (that has been greased with cannabutter and bake for about an hour or until you can place a knife in the loaf and nothing sticks to the knife. Cool the loaf for about 15 minutes in the pan, then turn the loaf out of the pan to cool completely.
