From-Scratch Cannabutter Without Infusing

Happy International Butter Day! Ready to take farm-to-table to a whole new level? We’re teaching you how to make delicious cannabutter without the infusion step. How? In the savory version of this butter, tasty aromatic herbs mask the flavor and texture of decarbed bud, while cannasugar gets an added boost of bioavailability when mixed with this homemade fat for our sweet cinnamon version. Let’s dive into how it’s done. 

How to Get Started

Start by activating your infusion medium. For these recipes, we like using flower, but you can always add a bit of decarbed concentrate if you mix it in very well. Decarb your material in the Nova by pressing the single-button interface and allowing it to run for a full cycle. Decarb your material in the FX by using the A1 setting for THC and CBG activation, and A2 setting for CBD activation. 

In the garlic herbed butter recipe, we’ll be tossing ground, decarbed herb right inside the butter. (No need to infuse!) In the sweet cinnamon butter recipe, we’re using cannasugar, which is a low-effort COLD infusion. Learn how to make cannasugar using our guide

When dosing with Ardent, we give you an easy-to-digest formula for calculating dose, based on what’s inside your starting material. Find out how to determine your personal dose, make accurate and predictable cannabis-infused foods, topicals, and personal therapies, and get to the bottom of every factor that will impact your experience.
