Ok, this is the way to make cannabutter, to be used in your everyday cooking...
Carefully bring the water to a boil, and add the butter. Once melted add your weed. Slowly boil off all the water in the butter. The secret is to get the mixture up over 300 degrees. This converts most of the THCA (which doesn't get you high) to THC which does get you high.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT LET IT GET OVER 350 DEGREES
Once the water has boiled off let the mixture simmer for 3-4 hours total.
Next, using a cheesecloth or similar (knee high stocking even!), strain out the spent plant matter, squeezing all the butter out of it, and put the liquid in the fridge.
A few hours later, the mixture is cool enough that the cannabutter has solidified on the surface. It looks kind of scummy, but its just enchanted butter.
Scoop it out and retain it in a bowl or a jar. Any remaining water can be thrown out.
Use the bud butter in any recipe that calls for butter.
