Crazy Easy Infused Butter

Welcome back to another Munchie Monday’s in my Kush Kitchen!

Guys, I used to hate making infused butter aka cannabutter. It was a long and smelly process but it’s necessary for any Kush Kitchen.

After some research and experimentation, I have found the best way to make you own cannabutter!

I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, like my immersion blender, it’s well loved and has become a staple in my kitchen. I’m sure any other pressure cooker would work just as well, but you may need to tweak the time or settings.

I knew I needed to make 2 sticks of cannabutter, with one stick containing 100mg of extract

200mg (mg I want in butter) / .7125 (Potency) = 280.701mg

280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g of wax needed. Further rounded to .28g of wax.

*** I used more cannabis CO2 oil in mine because future recipes require it. The butter amount remains the same.

Place your concentrate into a glass dish or canning jar. The instant pot comes with a wire rack for steaming, or use a different way elevate the dish. Place dish and fill the pot with water. The water level should rise midway up the container.

Close your pressure cooker and seal. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes, turn off warming feature.

When the instant pot finishes decarbing our concentrate, do an instant realize. You can cover the steam spout with a towel.

Place softened butter into your container. It will begin to melt and mix into our oil. Place the lid on with the valve set to seal. Place on high pressure for 15 minutes.

Once again do an instant release of pressure. Mix the butter to ensure even dispersion. Remove from instant pot, and blend for about 5 minutes while bowl cools down.

Place in fridge and let cool for 1-2 hours.

That’s it! Literally!

You can use this butter in cookies, brownies, to flavor your veggies! Use in a ‘baked’ potato, or mix with cinnamon for a cinnamon butter to pair with toast or biscuits.

Don’t use this to sear or fry food as that will cause the THC to degrade. This butter is meant to add flavor and should not be used if the temperature will go over 350F

Munchie Mondays – Infused Agave Recipe!

Hola Amigas!

Kush Kitchn’s first recipe! Infused Agave, vegan friendly, and with pro tips!

I am sooo excited for this post because it is paired with my first Youtube video for the Kush Kitchn, and begins our Munchie Mondays series. Let’s get to the blog part of this post!

I have been using THC and CBD to treat my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome for years preferring to make my own edibles; however I hated the traditional process of infusing an oil with flower because it smelled and I never knew what my the dosing was. Since I use this primarily for the health benefits, I needed to know how many milligrams per serving.

Well heres a tip from the industry: your favorite edibles are made with a cannabis oil with CO2 oil being a favorite amongst industry professionals.

Therefore when I make my edibles, I buy some form of concentrate from THCa crystals, CBD crystals, wax, or distillate. I then melt that down, using a makeshift double boiler, and then add my other ingredients.

It really is that easy, and with this method you will have a new understanding of how companies can offer affordable edibles while still making money. Cuz you aren’t using that much of the product!

Dosing 101:

When you purchase your concentrate, it will usually state a total cannabinoid potency and a total THC (or CBD) potency. Which potency total you use it up to your personal preference. If you don’t care for the psychoactive elements, then use the total cannabinoid potency; this maximizes product usage and total cannabinoid benefits. For those who want that high, use the Total THC potency. I know there are some readers who only use CBD concentrate products so in that instance you would use the Total CBD potency.

Now that we have out total THC content, which is 71.25% for my wax. You then need to understand the dosing. I wanted every tablespoon of agave to have 10mg of THC since most recipes I use call for one or two tablespoons of a sweetener. A quick google told me that there are 32 tablespoons in a cup, so I would need 10mg per 32 servings of agave.

Desired Potency(10mg) x Potency(.7125) = 14.035mg actual

Actual(14.035) x Servings(32) = 449.1228mg

449.128mg x 1000 = .449g ~ .45g of concentrate

So knowing I need about 45% of my wax, I was able to estimate the wax needed. You can also purchase digital scales fairly cheaply but mine is either broken or needs batteries; which basically means it’s broken.

Now to the recipe!

Take you wax, and place in your double boiler to let it melt down. You can let the wax melt first and then add a cup of agave, or place the wax and agave in at the same time and let them warm up together. I wanted my agave to thicken up so I had them warm up together.

The time to melt will depend on they concentrate but mine took about 30 minutes. Once the wax melted, I took my immersion blended and mixed it for about 15 minutes, with the heat turned off but still sitting in the pot.

Once the measuring cup was cooler, I removed it from the pot and placed on my cutting board while I blended for another 15-20 minutes. I think this step is important because letting your mixture cool quicker will keep the wax emulsified.

I then transferred the agave to a glass container, which is crucial to preserve the flavor and because the agave is still warm. I then place the agave into the fridge to let it thicken up more, but you could use it at this point.

Make sure that you place the infused agave into the fridge when not using, this will help it last longer and ensure the effects.

How was that?! Not too bad right! I use this agave in my tea or also to make salad dressings, bbq sauces, and in some skin care recipes! How are you going to use this recipe? What would you like to see next?

Authentically Yours,

In yet another “Getting To Know Me” post (hopefully you sang this like in the King & I) I will be explaining my sign off of choice!

Authentic is defined as ” of undisputed origin; genuine. ” If something is authentic, you know it is real and you don’t have to second guess anything.

I crave authenticity. I doubt that makes sense, but its the easiest way I can explain why being authentic means so much to me. I grew up hiding my self hatred and horrible home life. I always felts like I was playing a role because no one cared about my true self.

Thankfully, I met my wonderful husband Kyle and he has helped me to regain my self, my voice, and my authenticity.

What you see is what you get with me. It has taken me years to become comfortable with myself, and honestly I still have ways to go.

Be prepared; this blog is not for the lighthearted. I will be open and honest about my life, I will probably cuss because I like to cuss. Also I am an out Liberal Feminist Latina so if you don’t like any of those words, then this may not be the blog for you!

Authentically Yours,
