Take a look at the 5 best strains for making cannabutter!

I don’t know about you guys, but I love cannabutter. I love using it for baking, I love eating it straight and I love making it. The thing about cannabutter is you need a lot of cannabis to make a good batch. This can end up being pretty expensive, depending on the type of cannabis you’re using for your cannabutter. The most cost effective way to make cannabutter would be to grow your own herb. So, which strains are the best for making cannabutter?

White Widow

White Widow Strain

This delicious sativa is known for being one of the most flavorful strains and it’s certainly on the more potent side as well. This makes it especially well suited for making cannabutter. The delightful peppermint taste will give your cannabutter and resulting baked goods a cool and refreshing minty test. White Widow is best grown using the SCROG method and does well in soil or using a hydroponic setup.


Bubba Kush

Bubba Kush Strain

The famous Bubba Kush is an indica that is highly valued among medical users for its ability to induce sleep quickly and relieve you of the worst kinds of chronic pain. It also has a gloriously high THC content. All of these aspects make it one of the best strains for making cannabutter.
Since it grows in short and stout, this strain thrives the most in a hydroponic setting. Bubba Kush has a high yield and is fairly easy to grow.

This classic sativa hybrid strain is fantastic for making cannabutter. It hits strong and fast when smoked, and the effects of edibles made from Trainwreck seem like they last for days. For people as high strung as I am, this can be a godsend. Trainwreck is one of those strains that is at its best when allowed to grow unencumbered outdoors.




With its Cannabis Cup winning genetics, it’s no wonder Skywalker is  a favorite of cannabis chefs and smokers alike. This strain will provide you with the ultimate in rest and relaxation, in addition to melting all your pains and troubles away. This strain is best when grown in a hydroponic setting with clones.


OG Kush

OG Kush

Everyone knows that one of the best strains for making cannabutter is OG Kush, a strain that every self respecting grower should cultivate. This calming and relaxing strain will make you feel as though you are floating on a giant puffy cloud made of pure happiness. OG Kush is highly susceptible to powdery mildew when not trimmed enough. This strain does the best when grown indoors using the SCROG method. If you’re looking to maximize your crop yield hydroponic is the way to go. If you are growing outdoors it’s best to keep your plants in as dry an environment as possible.


The strain that you should decide on has a lot to do with what you’re looking for in an edible. If you’re looking for an edible that will act as an extra strength pain reliever, or a way to unwind after a long day at work, then an indica  is the way to go. If you’re looking for something more in the line of a party favor, then you’re definitely going to want a sativa. There’s also the option of using your trimmings, which we’ll get into next time.
