Cannabutter can be used just like butter, or baked into anything that would require butter such as brownies in order to create a tasty and intoxicating treat. Recipes using this butter should avoid high temperatures (in excess of 300 degrees Fahrenheit) as this may damage the potency of the butter by causing the THC to be vaporized. The flavor and color of the oil or butter used are changed depending on the method used.
