Different Methods of Making Cannabis Peanut Butter
If you don’t have cannabis peanut butter on hand, you can easily make some. Start by decarboxylating cannabis. Break dry cannabis into small pieces before placing in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 240°F. Next, grind decarboxylated cannabis to a fine powder. Finally, mix ground cannabis thoroughly into peanut butter.
The second method of infusing peanut butter is probably the easiest. Simply mix together decarbed tincture and peanut butter.
Thirdly, you can infuse peanut butter with concentrates. Dissolve BHO, RSO or other decarbed concentrates into a small amount of warm cooking oil. Cool oil and mix thoroughly with peanut butter afterward.
If you are incredibly ambitious and like to spend time in the kitchen, then you can make your own peanut butter. To start, roast peanuts. Next, mix roasted peanuts with infused oil or oil/decarbed dry flower in a food processor. Add a bit of sugar in order to stiffen the mixture. Use partially hydrogenated oil to prevent the peanut butter from separating. Finally, salt your cannabis peanut butter if desired.
Types of peanut butter
Even though there are 2 types of peanut butter, you can use either type to make cannabis peanut butter cookies. The first type is smooth, which spreads easily but may result in flatter cookies. The second type is crunchy, where crushed peanuts are added to peanut butter to create a crunchy texture.
Natural peanut butter contains only roasted ground peanuts. Because the oil separates, stir before using the product. Subsequently, this recipe was not tested using natural peanut butter.
