Cinnamon Chili Cannabutter

Cinnamon-Chili Cannabutter

  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ hot chili pepper, such as serrano or jalapeno, split lengthwise
  • 4 grams cannabis, decarboxylated

Combine butter, water, cinnamon sticks and chili in saucepan over low heat. As butter melts, mix in cannabis. Simmer 3½ hours, stirring often and making sure temperature doesn’t exceed 220 F. 

When cool, discard cinnamon and chili. Strain through cheesecloth into glass container. Refrigerate until solid, pouring off any water. Makes 2 cups butter, each about 183.5 mg THC, based on a 15% strain.
