How to make Cannabis Ghee

Ghee is clarified butter. It contains mostly butter fat and trace amounts of water and milk solids. THC, the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana (cannabis), is not readily digested by itself. Because THC is fat soluble it can be extracted into Ghee in order to make it more accessible to the body.


Ingredients for Ghee:

  • 2lb/900g unsalted butter

Making the Ghee:

  1. Melt the butter in a pan at a low to medium temperature so that the butter is hot enough to boil.
  2. A froth will form on the surface of the butter.
  3. Remove the froth with a spoon.
  4. Continue until no more froth appears.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Ingredients for Cannabis Ghee:

  • 1lb/450g Ghee
  • 1oz/28g of finely ground cannabis*

*The finer the powdered cannabis, the better this method will work.

Making the Cannabis Ghee:

  1. The ghee is melted in a pan and allowed to simmer.
  2. Add the cannabis slowly, and stir often.
  3. Allow to simmer for an hour.
  4. Strain with cheese cloth, and allow to cool.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    Boil the herbs in two cups of water down to 1 cup of water then simmer the ghee until until you have boiled all the water off(about 20 minutes), this way you won’t burn the ghee. there is no need to cook with it you can just swallow a tablespoon at a time. you can also use it as a nasya. use half a dropper into each nostril and snort it up 3 times. there are alot of herbal ghee recipes on the web. ayurveda has used brahmi ghee, triphala ghee bhringraj ghee etc for thousand of years. don’t strain the herbs until after you have mixed with the ghee though because it is the fat of the ghee that pulls the thc out. Ghee acts as a anupana which means it takes the herbs to the deeper tissues.
