The Aurora Clinic is known around the Northwest as the leading provider of Oregon medical marijuana cards. The clinic takes great pride in their mission to provide Oregon residents with an easy way to quickly obtain safe and legal medical marijuana. With the launch of their new blog the Aurora Clinic is now helping patients beyond their clinic by offering helpful information on the world of medical marijuana and even providing cannabis recipes that can turn traditional medical marijuana into tasty treats.
One of their most popular blog posts yet has been the recipe for Cannabutter, a butter substitute made with cannabis. According to the blog post, medical hemp can be used in a wide variety of dishes turning meals into a “feast for feeling free of pain.”

1-4 ounces of cannabis leaf trim or shake. 4 ounces results in maximum strength 10x Cannabutter.
1 pound of unsalted butter (salted or sweet cream butter if preferred)
2 quarts of water
- Weigh desired amount of plant material on scale.
- Combine these ingredients in a 5-quart stock pot.
- Bring the ingredients to a slow boil where they will begin to conjoin in love and happiness.
- Reduce heat and let the mixture simmer with no lid for 3-4 hours. The marijuana mixture will cook down to a concentrated level and most of the water will dissipate. If water evaporates before 3 hours, add one cup more. The idea is to cook off as much liquid as possible without burning the plant material.
- Turn off the stove.
- In a second pot or catch pot, you will strain the plant material from the butter and liquid mixture using a common kitchen strainer or colander.
- Place the strainer over the pot and allow liquids to drain into it.
- Using a blunt, firm object, such as a potato masher or stiff spoon, apply pressure to the remaining plan material to extract the remaining cannabis butter.
- Allow mixture to cool to where it can be handled.
- Using cheesecloth to strain the remaining butter from the plant material is suggested. Wrap a piece of the cheesecloth around the remaining plan material until there are no areas that leaf or shake can escape. Squeeze the material to separate the remaining butter into the pot. Use gloves to avoid absorption into skin, which at concentrated levels can produce psychoactive effects.
- If there is any noticeable plant material remaining in the butter-liquid mixture, it may be necessary to restrain the mix.
- Place the liquid butter mixture into the refrigerator to cool (normally overnight). The butter will congeal and separate from the remaining water mix.
- Remove the solidified butter from the water with an ice cream scoop or big spoon. Be sure to remove all loose pieces from the water.
- The beautiful amber-colored water can be saved for use in other recipes.
- Let the butter dry or pat with a paper towel to remove leftover moisture.
- Store the butter in appropriate food storage containers and/or food storage bags. Butter can be melted briefly if needed to accommodate storage. You can measure it into one-cup containers for convenience.
