Crafting Cannabutter with 7 Grams: A Culinary Journey with 4TwentyDC Dispensary

Hello, budding chefs and cannabis enthusiasts! If you're on this page, you're likely eager to dive into the world of cannabis-infused cooking. One of the foundational ingredients for many cannabis recipes is cannabutter. At 4TwentyDC Dispensary in Washington DC, we're here to guide you step-by-step on crafting the perfect cannabutter using just 7 grams of cannabis.

Why Cannabutter?

Cannabutter is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from baked goods to savory delights. It's an excellent way to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of cannabis in a flavorful manner.



7 grams of cannabis (your choice of strain from 4TwentyDC Dispensary)

1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter

1 cup of water

Step-by-Step Guide to Crafting Cannabutter with 7 Grams:


Decarboxylation is Key: Before infusing the cannabis into butter, it's essential to activate the THC and CBD through decarboxylation.

Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).

Grind your 7 grams of cannabis but not too finely.

Spread it evenly on a baking sheet.

Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the oven and let it cool.

Melting the Butter: In a saucepan, combine the butter and water. Simmer on low heat until the butter melts.


Infusion Time: Add the decarboxylated cannabis to the saucepan. Maintain a low heat and let the mixture simmer for 2-3 hours. Remember, low and slow is the mantra. The mixture should never come to a full boil.

Straining the Mixture: After simmering, strain the butter into a jar or bowl using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove the plant material.


Cooling Down: Place the jar or bowl in the fridge. Once the butter solidifies, any remaining water will separate, and you can drain it off.

Storing: Your cannabutter can be stored in the fridge for short-term use or frozen for an extended period.
