While there are many ways to infuse your food, a reliable slow-cooker cannabis butter recipe is an essential part of any weed chef’s arsenal. Cannabutter elevates any old batch of cookies or dinner recipes into THC-friendly treats. However, you can’t throw a stone without hitting a canna-chef with a story to tell about overdoing it on edibles. Tales of inconsistency, uneven distribution of THC, and overpowering highs are everywhere.

Luckily, we have the perfect slow-cooker cannabutter recipe for you. How long does cannabutter take in a slow cooker, you ask? A slow cooker indeed takes more time than, say, baking your bud in an oven to decarboxylate the THCA into THC then throwing the ounce of weed into a pot of melting butter. Trust us, though, using a slow cooker to make cannabutter will ensure complete saturation and an uber-potent final product ready to use in a plethora of recipes.
Of course, the potency depends on several factors, including how long you cook your cannabutter, how much weed you throw into the pot, whether you add trim or bud, etc. If you’re wondering how much cannabutter does an ounce make, it all depends on how potent you want your butter. An ounce in 1 pound of butter is very different than an ounce in 2 pounds of butter.
The same logic applies to how much cannabis is used in the recipe. How much trim is in a pound of butter all depends on how strong you want your THC-infused experience to be. You could add any amount to the butter, from half an ounce to 2 ounces or whatever your preference may be.
The potency and amount of butter you make depends on the intended use for your cannabutter. If you have a specific weed recipe in mind, you can make as much as you need and adjust the below cannabutter recipe accordingly. Conversely, you can make large batches of cannabutter and freeze whatever you don’t use.
Read on for a step-by-step guide to making the perfect cannabutter in a slow cooker.
Slow-cooker cannabis butter recipe
First, assemble the following supplies and ingredients:
- A slow cooker.
- Metal strainer or cheesecloth.
- Storage container.
- 1 cup of water.
- 1 pound of butter.
- 1 to 2 ounces of cannabis flower, depending on potency preference.

Next, turn on the slow cooker to the lowest possible setting. Add all the ingredients and stir thoroughly. Put on the lid and allow everything to cook for up to 18 hours. Remember, the longer you cook, the more potent your weed butter will be. “How do I know when my cannabutter is done?” you ask. Gauge the duration of your cooking session based on how much THC you want the butter to absorb. The average cooking time per most online sources is about 12 hours.

Once your mixture finishes cooking, pour the cannabutter through the metal strainer or cheesecloth into a separate bowl. Set the butter in your refrigerator. As it cools, it will harden and separate from the water.
Finally, remove the butter from the water and store it in an airtight container, usually a glass jar or plastic container. Your weed butter is now ready to use.
