Once your butter has melted pour your cannabis in and mix it in the butter till it is soaked  and let it simmer for 3 hours on very low heat

remember  don't boil  mix it every 40 minutes.

Now place bowl in fridge for 24 hours or until it is completely solid.

After it is solid remove the extra water that was left which should be easy to do because all the water will rise to top of bowl completely separate from water .
