When selecting your CBD, be sure to choose a high-quality, all-natural potent oil, like Pure Relief. Pure Relief oils are full-spectrum and are shown to offer the maximum benefits of CBD. They’re also sourced from organic hemp and tested by independent labs to ensure quality, safety, and potency in every bottle.
To make cannabutter, begin with an unflavored high-potency CBD oil, like Pure Relief Full Spectrum 1000 MG CBD. You will also need 2 cups of butter and 1 cup of distilled water.
Chop the butter into small pieces, and combine with 1 cup of water and 20 ml of CBD oil in a pot. Heat on low for about 2 hours. Let the mixture cool, and then pour into an airtight container to reform.
For those who want to make vegan CBD oil butter, simply use 2 cups vegan butter substitute, and omit the water.
Once you have your CBD butter, you can use it for cooking in the same ratios as regular butter. Read on for some delicious ways to cook with cannabutter, as well as for recipes that use CBD oil directly.
