What is CBD Oil Infused Butter?
CBD oil infused butter, also often referred to as CBD butter, is traditional unsalted dairy-based butter that has been infused with CBD oil.
CBD oil is a botanical extract made from high-CBD, low-THC hemp plants. This nutritious CBD hemp oil is naturally abundant in CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that interacts with our naturally occurring systems to encourage balance and wellness.
Cannabinoids like CBD are not naturally soluble in water, but they are soluble in certain carrier oils. The fat in the dairy-based butter acts as a carrier for CBD and other cannabinoids and compounds in hemp oil so that once they’re ingested they can be delivered to the bloodstream and interact with the body’s systems.
CBD butter can be used in any way that traditional butter is used, whether it’s as a simple spread for bread or toast, or as a major ingredient in a complex baking recipe.
Benefits of CBD Oil Butter
The CBD and other trace cannabinoids infused into the CBD butter, once absorbed, promote health and wellness by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a signaling network that keeps many of the body’s functions in balance.
It’s hard to find a bodily function that isn’t regulated by the endocannabinoid system. By interacting with cannabinoid receptors, CBD supports the endocannabinoid system and its effort to keep your body and its many functions in homeostasis.
Because CBD oil is derived from hemp, it contains only trace amounts of THC. This means you when you consume CBD butter, like all CBD oil products, you can obtain the significant health benefits of cannabinoids without having to experience a psychoactive high or other effects like with marijuana.
How Long Does it Take to Make CBD Butter?
Making your own CBD butter is a relatively simple process, but keep in mind that you’ll need to set aside a few hours.
While you may find other recipes that call for shorter cook times, it is recommended to use a “low and slow” infusing method. Slowly infusing your CBD oil into the butter helps ensure that the CBD oil infuses fully into the butter and avoids any burning and subsequent damaging of the cannabinoids.
How to Make CBD Oil Butter: Step-By Step
Before getting started, it’s important that you know how much CBD you’d like to infuse into your butter. Do the math ahead of time so that you know how much CBD you’ll be getting on a per-serving basis.
For example, the recipe below calls for 2 cups (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter and 10 grams pure CBD hemp oil. If the 10 grams of CBD oil you use contains 2400 mg CBD, you know that each tablespoon of CBD butter will have 150 mg CBD.
You can easily increase or decrease the amount of CBD oil you use in the recipe to make a more or less potent CBD butter. This article will help you figure out how much CBD you should take each day.
Ready to make your own CBD butter? Let’s go!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own CBD oil infused butter:
- 2 cups unsalted butter
- 10 grams pure CBD hemp oil
- 4 cups water
How to make CBD oil infused butter:
- Cut the butter into several smaller pieces.
- Combine the butter pieces, water, and CBD hemp oil into a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat. Continue cooking on low for 3-4 hours.
- Gently stir the mixture every 30 minutes using a metal spoon. The mixture will eventually thicken as the water cooks off.
- Once the mixture appears glossy and dense, remove the saucepan from the stovetop and allow the mixture to cool slightly.
- Once the mixture is safe to handle, pour it into an airtight container. Secure the container’s lid firmly and place the container of CBD butter into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to let it solidify.
Does CBD Butter Taste Good?
Those new to CBD butter are rightly curious as to whether it tastes good. The flavor of CBD butter will greatly depend on the type of CBD oil you use.
Pure unfiltered CBD hemp oil, such as HempMeds® Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) Green Label, has a taste that is commonly described as nutty or grassy. Those light earthy flavors, which come from the natural terpenes, chlorophyll, cannabinoids and other nutritious material found in hemp oil, can infuse into the butter.
If you’d prefer to avoid the flavor of pure, unfiltered CBD oil in your CBD butter, consider using RSHO™ Gold Label. Our Gold Label has been placed through a filtration process to remove most of the plant’s chlorophyll and excess plant material for a more refined taste.
You can also make CBD butter using RSHO™ CBD Isolate, a 99% pure CBD isolate powder. Our CBD isolate has been purified using a proprietary process to filter out plant material and remove excess waxes. The CBD isolate powder has no taste or smell to it, making it an ideal option if you’re looking to fully avoid any hemp flavor in your CBD butter. Each 1-gram jar of CBD isolate contains 990 mg of CBD, allowing you to infuse high levels of CBD in your butter.
What You Can Do With Your CBD Oil Butter
Now that you’ve made your CBD butter, you’re ready to make your own CBD edibles. CBD butter can be easily incorporated into any recipe that calls for traditional butter. Use it to top waffles in the morning or baked potato at dinner. Stir it into your morning coffee or melt it and drizzle it over a bowl of popcorn.
Because of its versatility, CBD oil butter can be used to make a wide array of CBD-infused edibles, including:
- Banana bread
- Macaroni and cheese
- Pasta sauces
Keep any extra CBD butter you have in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. Provided that the CBD butter is kept from exposure to air, it will stay fresh in the fridge for several weeks.
