I take no responsibility for what you do, so be smart!
Furthermore, this is not an official “how to” video, as I’m sure this isn’t THE absolute best way to do it (as any keyboard warrior out there would probably be happy to let me know). This is merely how I’ve been doing it for some time, and those that have tried it have all wanted more.

1 ounce dry marijuana (28 grams) – personally I use good end of bag material, but it would certainly be better with AAAA+ nugs gently busted down to a small mostly uniform size
1 cup butter (250 millilitres) – adjust according to however much extra you think you will need to achieve 1 cup after straining
1 baking pan
pot + bowl that safely fit together to form double boiler
second bowl for straining
Ratio: 1 ounce dry marijuana (28 grams): 1 cup butter (237 millilitres)
If you prefer not to use butter, you can use coconut oil or whichever your fat of choice just the same.
Preheat oven to 220F (104.5C)
Sprinkle weed on aluminum foil lined baking pan into a single layer
Bake weed at 240F for around 30 minutes and AVOID peeking! Every time the door opens the oven loses temperature and you risk ruining your batch 🙁 So unless your oven runs hot, wait 25 minutes before even inspecting – and even still, keep it to a minimum. You’re looking for a very slight browning like when you dry and activate your fresh kitchen spices. Don’t overdo it!
While the weed is in the oven – get your double boiler set up and boiling so the butter is melted and ready to accept the freshly decarboxylated weed.
Once the weed has finished in the oven (decarboxylating), add it to your melted butter and give it a stir.
Now for the hardest part: WAIT
For the next 3 or more hours you must monitor both the water level in the pot you’re boiling, whilst periodically giving the weed/butter mixture a good stir.
Sidenote – the longer you let it go, the butter may become more potent but the more sleepy you’ll make anyone that tries them. This is due to the cbd breaking down into cbn. I’ve heard of people going as long as 12 hours. Personally I try to avoid this. Let experience be your guide.
Once you’re content that the mixture has stewed long enough, remove your top bowl containing the weed butter from the heat and let it cool for a minute or two.
Take some cheesecloth and lay it down as shown at about 45 degrees from each layer (not completely unfolded – just enough to catch the weed), this will help make sure the holes aren’t too large or also weak when squeezing the living hell out of it. A puncture or blowout in the cheesecloth at this point is not fun. So as much as you don’t want to lose more of the precious juice to more cloth, use as much as necessary so as to only do it once.
Squeeze. Smush. Twist. Squeeze some more. Once satisfied, throw your masterpiece in the fridge and start cleaning up!
