What Can You Do With Your Leftover Cannabutter Pulp?

Making cannabutter is a fun way to spend an afternoon. It’s easy to do, not to mention you get some good results from making cannabutter. The only issue is what do you do with all that leftover cannabutter pulp that’s leftover from the butter making process?

Make Some Pesto

Cannabutter Pesto

The most obvious option should be to make some pesto. I mean look at all of the pulp you have left, it looks a lot like pesto, so you can imagine where I’m going with this. You can easily make your leftover cannabutter into pesto. It’s really easy, actually. All you have to do is make some regular pesto and mix in some of your leftover pulp. You decide how much you need of course.

Make Some Tacos

That leftover cannabis pulp makes a fantastic garnish for things like meat, so why not make some delicious tacos with it? Once again, this is a very easy recipe to make and should take you no time at all.

The potency of the dish will vary depending on the strain you used, and the method you used to make the cannabutter in the first place. Add the cannabutter pulp while slowly simmering your taco meat and you should be on a rocket ride to the moon.

    Of course, you can always just throw your leftover cannabutter pulp on whatever you choose.

      1. That’s interesting. I think I could throw it in some homemade vegetable soup and I was thinking of throwing some into my salad. Could I get that great calmness after awhile?

      2. I have to agree, I have a dog who loves cannabis and seeks out eddibles and left over joints to eat, but another who FREAKED after jumping in the counter and a brownie I made…. i definitely wouldn’t recommend serving it to dogs

      3. Instant improvement in [your pet’s] physical health? That’s pretty irresponsible.
