How to Make Cannabutter with Two Grams of Weed
I’ve had several of the same question submitted to me over the past few months: how can I make cannabutter with smaller amounts of cannabis? After all, not everyone is able just go out and buy and ounce of weed just to cook with.
Can cooking with small amounts of cannabis: can it be done?
Basically, this is a simple math question – the method is still is the same. It can be done!
Below is a chart you can follow for making cannabutter in smaller amounts. Just remember, when cooking in smaller quantities, you are going to want to use the smallest jar possible.
Use the following technique when making cannabutter. BE MINDFUL when cooking smaller batches. These tend to be more prone to drying. Keep that lid on tight unless you are burping the jar.
Another issue that you will run into when infusing very small quantities of butter is that while you may START with a tablespoon of butter, you will not end up with 2 tablespoons. No matter how hard you squeeze. Just remember that your yield is highly infused with cannabinoids. Simply add any tiny amount that may be missing in the form of uninfused product to your recipe.
