Hash Butter: The Quickest, Easiest and Strongest Cannabutter You Can Make

hash coconut oil

I get a lot of questions about how to make really strong cannabutter and cannabis infused coconut oil from folks with high tolerances or who need stronger medicine in smaller doses.

Since I generally like to take microdoses of cannabis (about 10mg or less) throughout the day when I need to medicate, I’ve never really delved into the world of making ridiculously strong cannabis oil or butter. I realize that some people need stronger medicine, but those people aren’t me, and I don’t have the tolerance to test strong oil without getting really really really messed up, so I never did it.

But a few days ago when I started working on tomorrow’s post for a Cannabis Infused Grilled Cheese (because, yeah… that’s happening), I accidentally stumbled on a way to make incredibly potent, small batch cannabis oil and butter using decarboxylated hash.

Hash Infused Butter is Very Strong

With as little as 1 oz of butter or coconut oil and 1 gram of decarboxylated hash, you can make an approximately 150-300mg THC tablespoon of oil or butter in a snap. You don’t need a crockpot, cheesecloth or a strainer. And it makes no mess! It’s definitely the easiest and strongest cannabis infused butter or oil I’ve ever made.

So yeah, testing this hash butter made me melt into the floor and feel like I just wasn’t going to make it to see another day. Let my mistake stand as a reminder that you really need to be conscious of dosing your edibles. Even an experienced edibles writer sometimes gets hungry and eats half of a grilled cheese without calculating dosage first and spends half of her afternoon asking the farmer to remind her that she’s not, in fact, dying.

On the upside, it was an incredibly cathartic experience that led to some revealing realizations… which I’ll be sharing in tomorrow’s cannabis infused grilled cheese post… AND I felt GREAT the next morning. You’ve got to love that weed hangovers aren’t a thing and overdosing on cannabis sometimes just feels like free therapy.


How Much THC is in One Gram of Hash?

how much thc is in a gram of hashFinding out how much THC is in hash is a little more difficult than calculating the dosage of marijuana. Most hash is comprised of many strains and is much stronger than flower. I checked in with SCLabs to get a sampling of the hash they’ve tested and this is what I figured out:

  • Non-solvent hash can range from 30%-over 63% THC. Wax can get over 80% THC.
  • This means that one gram of hash can contain anywhere from 300mg-630mg of THC. And one gram of wax can contain over 800 mg THC!
  • This means that a half of my cannabis infused grilled cheese was anywhere from 150mg to 315mg of thc… oy vey…

I toned this recipe down a little bit because it was way too strong. When I made it, I used 1 gram hash to 1oz oil or butter, so a 1 to 1 ratio does technically “work”, it’s just really really really really really really really really really really really strong. I cut it in half for those of you who would like to function at a base level (walking, talking, etc).

If you need to make your medicine stronger, you can get a lot of hash in a small amount of butter or oil. Just be sure to experiment with smaller doses and work your way up, especially if this is your first time cooking with hash.

Hash Infused Butter or Hash Infused Coconut Oil (Spicy Italian)

hash butter pinIn a double boiler or makeshift double boiler over medium high heat, combine:

2 oz (4 Tablespoons) organic butter or coconut oil

1 gram organic bubble hash (decarboxylated)

1 tsp Italian herbs (optional)

a generous pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)

1/2-1 clove garlic (optional)

As butter or oil melts, whisk until all ingredients are combined and hash melts into the butter. Cook for about 20-30 minutes until all hash has dissolved into the butter and the herbs are fragrant (if using). Remove garlic.

Dosage Estimate: Using this recipe, 1 Tablespoon of Hash Infused Cannabis Oil or Butter can contain anywhere from 75-150mg THC. Be aware of your tolerance and dosage needs. See the article on calculating the THC in your edibles for a more information.

Disclaimer: This is not intended as medical advice. I’m not a doctor. I’m also not a lawyer and can’t defend you if you get busted trying to make this recipe in a state that still considers possession or cultivation of cannabis a criminal act. I don’t agree with this law, but I’d never advocate that you break it. Jail would suck. Instead, I strongly advise that you work to change the law in your state or nation by supporting and being active in grassroots organizations that are trying to legalize cannabis in your area (they’re everywhere). This recipe is heretoforth only intended for people who live in states or countries where medical or recreational use of cannabis is legal, who are 21 and older, of sound mind and who understand that operating heavy machinery (cars, trucks, planes, etc.) under the influence of any intoxicant, including marijuana, is incredibly dangerous, immature, and wholly stupid. Please don’t ever eat and drive. Support public transportation or use the two legs that evolution gave you and walk your sweet ass wherever it is that you need to go.

Much love,

    So. If I use hash or wax instead of greens I could just follow this recipe? Do I have to make the coconut oil “spicy”? or can I leave all that out?

      You can totally leave all of the spices and herbs out. It just helped enhance the flavor of the grilled cheese I made with it.

    When cooking with hash, preferably bubble hash after I decarboxilate it, is there a way to dosage out your edibles without having anything tested?

    Since this recipe is only making a few spoons of oil opposed to a whole cup, how much lecithin would you add, and when? If I was going to make a chocolate bar would I add it to just the coconut oil or too the oil/chocolate mix? Thanks.

    Hi there, thanks for the great info. I wondered if i could ask – if i am using straight hash (not bubble) should i increase the infusion time in the oil? My guess is the bubble hash is quick because its just the extracted trichomes already?

    This might sound real “back alley-ish” but use a drop…. literally a drop of canna-oil on a half teaspoon of olive oil and heat it over a candle. Once the oils heat up and you start to smell the thc, let it cool down slightly and then slowly drink it, drop it under your tongue. This taste funny but it’s worth it. I was high af for hours…munchies and everything.
