How to Make CBD Infused Butter
CBD isolate is used to make CBD infused butter and other activated ingredients. This recipe requires CBD infused butter. If you have the isolate, it’s very simple to make and is ready in a couple of minutes!
Step 1: Fill the bottom of a double boiler with water. Bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat on low and add the butter to the top half of the double boiler.
Step 2: After the butter has melted, add the CBD isolate. Stir for a couple of minutes until the isolate is thoroughly combined with the butter. You want to ensure it is mixed evenly throughout. Make sure the butter never comes to a boil.

You will want to calculate the dosage prior to making the recipe. All you need to do is measure the mg of CBD isolate you are going to use when infusing it with the butter. The package the CBD comes in may have serving guides and instructions to do this.
Another way to measure your dosage is by using a scale. Aim to use a minimum of 0.1g which is equivalent to 100mg of CBD. If you want to use less, just split that pile into two, that will give you 50mg of CBD.
Here is a link to the scale we use which can be purchased on Amazon!
We also have a potency calculator at the bottom of this post that you can use to help calculate the dosage you want!
