Grind the cannabis, then place it on a parchment-lined baking tray. Bake in a 240°F/115°C oven for 45-60 minutes.
Put 500ml of water in a large pan and place the glass mixing bowl on the pan (bain marie/double boiler). Put the pan of water on a low heat
Place the butter and the dried cannabis in the bowl and cook for 2-3 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. (top up the water in the pan when needed)
Once 2-3 hours have passed, wait for the mixture to cool a bit, then pour it into a cheesecloth-lined strainer/fine sieve into a container
Leave the canna butter to cool overnight in the fridge
