In lieu of being in Colorado, I present to you a medical marijuana patient’s favorite delicacy, Cannabutter. If this blog is going to be about all things natural all around the world, I have to embrace cultural differences and natural remedies unbeknownst to me. Of course I have heard of the holy grail we call Cannabutter. I got some inspiration from Food Republic {the blog who featured Elise from The High Times} and some other resources to come up with this healthier version of this long-time known recipe for medical marijuana patients worldwide.


This post not in any way condones making this within parts of the world, including the United States of America and other such places, that does not legally allow one to obtain marijuana. I write this post celebrating my time in Colorado for the next two days or so before we take off to another destination. Just in case you’re probably part of the world but doesn’t know about what’s going on in Colorado, it is now legal to use marijuana for recreational use as well as for any other medical or mental health purposes.



The weather has been great so far since we’ve been here. A little rainy as we enjoyed downtown Denver, nothing we can’t handle; it was absolutely crisp as we visited the Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park, though. I guess when you’re up 13,000 feet at the top of the Rocky Mountains, the air can be pretty crisp, and that’s besides the popped eardrums, headache and such. When I think about it, I guess it’s not so bad after all to be a little uncomfortable if you’re at the top of the world.


I know the Rocky Mountains might not be your typical Mount Everest what it means something to me to get to the top of that mountain range. We hiked on through with the boy in hand and the GoPro on Marylex’s head, more details on the GoPro on a later post. It’s funny because the videos we captured are of us basically not knowing what the heckery we were doing as we hiked and trekked through the mountains. I can tell you this much, it was a heck of a workout.

If you live in a green-friendly state, this recipe is for you! In lieu of butter, replace your ingredients with Cannabutter.



Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 1 hour

Total time: 1 hr 10 mins

Serves: 8








  • 1 lb grass-fed butter

  • 1 oz cannabis buds, finely ground





  1. Melt the butter on low heat in a saucepan. Add the ground buds; simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, stirring frequently.

  2. Strain the butter into a glass mason jar with a tight-fitting lid using the cheesecloth. Push the back of a spoon against the plant matter and smash it against the cheesecloth to squeeze out every drop of butter available. When you’re done, discard the plant matter and cheesecloth.

  3. Use your cannabutter immediately, refrigerate or freeze until it is time to use.



  • One pound of butter (4 sticks) can absorb 1 ounce of cannabis, but you may want to simmer for up to 60 minutes.

  • You can easily scale this recipe up for larger batches of cannabutter.
