Butter Infusion

Updated: Apr 19

Butter on a plate


16oz butter

5 grams of cannabis (decarboxylated)

Cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer

Sous vide machine

Mason jar or vacuum-sealable bag

Airtight container for storing the infused butter

Step 1: Decarboxylation

In this example we have used our automatic decarb machine. See our "Make your Infusions" tab for other options. To produce our 25-30 mgs of THC per tablespoon butter we used 5 grams of cannabis flower containing 21.7% THC. Be sure to grind your bud before starting the decarb process.

Step 2 Infusing the butter:

Place the decarboxylated marijuana in a vacuum-sealable bag. Add butter to the bag and vacuum seal.

Step 3 Sous Vide Setup:

Fill a sous vide container with water and set the sous vide machine to 185°F (85°C). See our “How to infuse” page for other methods of infusion.

Step 4 Infusion Process:

Submerge the sealed bag in the water bath and let it cook for 3.5 hours. This time and temperature will allow for optimal THC extraction.

Step 5 Straining:

After the infusion is complete, remove the bag from the water bath. Use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to strain the infused butter, separating the plant material from the liquid.

Step 6 Cooling and Storing:

Transfer the THC-infused butter to a butter mold or other container to cool. Allow it to cool to room temperature and transfer to the fridge for 12 hours to solidify. Make sure to label your container with the THC/tablespoon and the date.



We have the equipment to test each of our infusions to determine the exact amount of THC in them. If you followed our recipe exactly you can confidently approximate this infusion to have 25-30 mgs of THC per tablespoon. Please visit our THC calculator if you would like higher or lower THC levels in your infusion.
