Making cannabutter doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Had I known this when I received my first medical marijuana recommendation, I could have saved a ton of money and created medibles that met my medical needs.

Why You Should Make Cannabutter
Edibles, also known as medibles, were the first form of cannabis that I medicated with after receiving my medical recommendation. The reason I chose them was that they were discreet. Later, after I began trying it in other forms, I realized edibles were a smart way for me to begin my journey of relieving chronic pain with cannabis.

It takes longer to feel the effects of cannabis when consuming an edible. But, on the plus side, once in full effect, it provides long-lasting relief. The relief I experience from smoking or dry vaping often dissipates in 2-6 hours. Whereas the relief from an edible typically lasts 6-10 hours. That long-term relief is what made it possible for me to sleep through the night.
There are two reasons I suggest you learn to make your own cannabutter. The first is that (especially when done my way) it will save you a lot of money! When I first began cooking with cannabutter, I purchased it from a dispensary. The problem was that I couldn’t count on them to always have it in stock. Out of the few dispensaries that did carry it, most were not what I could consider affordable.

Reason number two has to do with knowing what you are getting. Being that I am allergic to iodine, I can only have unsalted butter or butter with sea salt. But it goes beyond the type of butter used. Every strain of cannabis affects my body differently. Not knowing which strains were used to make the cannabutter results in not knowing what kind of relief my body will experience. By making my own, I choose my preferred strains and can create a blend that suits my needs.

I have been medicating with marijuana since September of 2013. During this time I have learned the importance of not giving up just because one strain didn’t help. Because it is possible for one person to have a different reaction to another, strain reviews aren’t always an accurate way to decide what will work for you, but it does help. I research the strains my dispensary has available on Leafly before placing my order.
