Are you a cannabis enthusiast looking to elevate your DIY game? Look no further! In this article, we’ll explore some exciting tips and tricks for infusing your favorite cannabis strains into various homemade creations.

Butter and Oil Infusions

One of the most popular and versatile infusions is creating cannabis-infused butter or oil. These can be used in a wide range of recipes, from baked goods to savory dishes. Here’s a quick guide:

  1. Decarboxylate your cannabis by baking it at a low temperature (around 240°F/115°C) for about 30-40 minutes.
  2. Grind the decarboxylated cannabis coarsely.
  3. In a saucepan, melt your butter or heat your oil of choice (coconut, olive, or vegetable oil).
  4. Add the ground cannabis and simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  5. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to separate the infused butter/oil from the plant material.

Tinctures and Extracts

Tinctures and extracts are highly concentrated cannabis preparations that can be added to various recipes or consumed sublingually. Here’s how to make a simple tincture:

  1. Decarboxylate your cannabis as mentioned above.
  2. Place the decarboxylated cannabis in a glass jar or bottle.
  3. Cover the cannabis with a high-proof alcohol (like Everclear or food-grade grain alcohol).
  4. Seal the container and store it in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks, shaking it occasionally.
  5. After the infusion period, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to remove the plant material.
