Is 2 hours long enough for cannabutter?

No matter what, wait at least one to two hours to start feeling the effects of the edible.

How to Use a Double Boiler. To use a double boiler, simply fill the bottom pot with one or two inches of water. Next, add in the top pot and turn on your burner to a simmer.
