Whether you own a genuine Insta pot or some other version, these recipes are compatible for all different brands of instant cooking pots. Instant pot’s make excellent tools for anyone who is just figuring out how to make edibles, as they remove a lot of the guesswork and patience required with other preparation and cooking methods that are more commonly used to make edibles.

Though they do take a bit of investment upfront, the fantastic results make everything worthwhile in the end, and the best part is that the total cooking time is reduced by an average of 80% when compared to oven or stovetop versions. Here, you will find out how to make edibles that can be used to relax after a long day at work, soothe pains or even a meal to impress all your friends. Just remember, servings in each one is limited, so if you’re hosting a party, you may need to make multiple batches to have enough on hand for everyone.

1. Insta pot Cannabutter

Most cannabutter recipes take ages to make, and that is precious time that you could use to enjoy your already complete edibles. This instant pot cannabutter is fast, easy and makes for the perfect base to infusing all of your favorite recipes to turn them into marijuana edibles in a flash.


·         Unsalted butter

·         Cannabis


·         Mason jar(s) with lid(s)

·         Insta pot (or any other instant pot)

·         Cheesecloth

·         Weed grinder


1. To begin, figure out how many jars and the amount of cannabis that will be used. Grind the buds and pour them into the glass jar(s), leaving 1 inch from the top. We recommended beginners stick to less than half full, as the more you add, the more potent the cannabutter will become.

2. Seal the jars with the lids on as tightly as you can manage.

3. Drop the cannabis filled jar(s) into the Insta pot and set it to slow cook setting to decarboxylate for 35 minutes.

4. Remove the jars from the instant pot and let them cool enough to handle, safely.

5. Now, it is time to add the fat which will bind to the THC molecules. At this point, ensure the marijuana in the mason jar(s) is covered entirely, leaving at least 1 inch of breathing room at the top of the jar.

6. Cover the mason jar(s) with cheesecloth and attach it using an elastic or piece of twine to create a built-in filter that makes straining later a breeze.

7. Set the glass jars open side up in the instant pot, and fill the empty chamber surrounding the containers around halfway with water.

8. Close the instant pot and switch it over to the pressure cook setting and wait for 30 minutes while the infusion takes place.

9. Open the valve to release the built-up steam and pressure, then carefully remove the mason jars from the liquid. They will be super-heated, so it is highly recommended to either wait for them to cool or handle them with protection like oven mitts.

10. Pour the hot cannabutter into a clean, room temperature mason jar and empty the rest of the contents into a large sheet of cheesecloth.

11. Once all the liquid has been emptied into clean storage containers, squeeze out the remaining THC butter from the plant materials using the large sheet of cheesecloth as a filter. When you are certain, all the liquid is retrieved, the excess plant materials can be recycled.

12. Seal the mason jars, and once the cannabutter reaches room temperature, it can be refrigerated and stored for up to 1month.

Fun marijuana facts – How long does weed stay in your system?

The answer to the seemingly simply question of how long does weed stay in your system depends on what you mean exactly. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD that are found in cannabis plants can stay detectable through certain methods of testing for up to a month, and even longer for long-time consumers.

However, the effects themselves are much shorter-lived and tend to dissipate entirely within 12 hours after initiation ingestion.
