I've definitely had my fair share of making cannabutter, but I have always been hazy on how long to slow cook the butter for.
The last time I simmered an ounce of middies for about 8 hours and it was wonderful, but I have heard the longer the better, just not to go longer than 24 hours.
Has anyone out there tried a 24 hour simmering process?
If so, how did it go?

that is a great question and i always have had no idea so i decided to try several ways. I have slowcooked for as long as 18 hours in a crockpot 1lb of butter to 1 oz of mids it turned out great. I have also slowcooked for as short as 2 hours with the same recipe as above but after slow cooking i put the bud/butter/water mix and brought it to a rolling boil just to make sure the thc was decarboxoleated ending in exactly the same result as 18 hours of slow cooking so imo the 24 hour process is a little overkill there is only so much thc/cbn/cbd in the product that can be extracted so i would like to hear anyone elses feedback if they have hade similar results
To be completely honest, I would almost have to agree with you. I don't know, man. I've made butter with a half ounce of mids and a half lb of butter and simmered in a slow-cooker for 12 hours and it worked superbly. I have also used a LB of butter and an ounce of mids and slow cooked for 24 hours. I think both of them were equally great, but then again..I have no idea. Thanks for your input uncletryptamine, it's appreciated.
When using a crock pot, i add the butter and water to it before i go to bed, put it on low, and finish up in the morning.
Do you ever stir it? or do you just let it settle?
i know right every recipe you read is different it doesn't make sense im just as confused sorry that i dont know either just as confused as you.
ahaha I would have to think that the following ratio: 1 ounce of mids to a lb of butter works perfectly. and simmering for 24 hours might be overkill, but at least I know that it works. So, I might just have to stick to the ol' faithful method. Whatchya guys think?
