What is Cannabutter?
Cannabutter is the fancy word us hippies use for butter that’s been infused with cannabis. This is usually done by steeping the buds in melted butter. The butter will then absorb the flavors (terpenes) and cannabinoids (think THC/CBD) from the weed, leaving you with a tasty morsel that packs a powerful punch.
Cannabutter is most commonly used in a variety of baked goods, although it can also be used in many other recipes that we have been experimenting with here at BeTheHippy.
The most popular baked goods to use with cannabutter are cookies, muffins, brownies, and cakes.
Pretty certain a brownie is everyones first foray into edibles.
You can also use it in savory dishes such as sauces, dips, and curries.
Shit, we’ve done it in cocktails/mocktails and even the morning cup of coffee.
How to Make Cannabutter and How Does it Work?
The cannabis is placed in melted butter, and then this is left to simmer on the stove.

As the butter bubbles away, it slowly infuses with the cannabis. At the same time, the butter is also slowly evaporating down and pulling those cannabinoids in through the fatty cells of the butter.
This leads to the cannabinoids being absorbed into the butter.
The butter can then be used as a regular ingredient in any recipe. So, feel free to look at any recipe and just sub for the butter with your butter.
The amount of cannabinoids that will be found in the finished butter will vary from one batch to the next. The quality of the cannabis, the amount used, and the way it was cooked will all come into play.

The chamber has a silicone lid that can be used to seal in the smell and the heat. This makes sure that the cannabis stays in the butter and keeps the butter from burning.
It also is key in helping to minimize the odor of cooking with cannabis. keep those nosy neighbors at bay.

Pros of the LEVO 2 Cannabutter Infuser — The Highs
The LEVO 2 is super easy to use and simple to clean. It’s also very low maintenance, which is important for anybody who’s busy with work or school… or life in general these days.

The LEVO 2 ensures consistent infusions every time, maintaining a steady LEVO 2 potency that takes the guesswork out of homemade edibles.

Cons of the LEVO 2 Infuser — The Lows
The primary thing people gripe about with the LEVO is the amount + potency of the infusion. It only holds about 7 grams in the strainer. Then, 2 cups of butter total in the reservoir. That doesn’t make for a high potency infusion sometimes.
Check out the “LEVO potency hack” in the FAQs below to see ways around this.
The next issue is always the price. Is it worth buying one device just to decarb and infuse?
It’s also important to remember that the LEVO 2 is designed for indoor use. It is not suitable for outdoor use, and you shouldn’t use it outside.
And, lastly, from those who are really lazy. They don’t love having to decarb and infuse. Some will just do it with the infusion setting. For that, you have to extend the infusion time and you do lose a little control on your terpenes and cannabinoid extraction potency we believe.
