  • 1 teaspoon orange extract see note above


  • Lightly oil a 5 -inch X 9 -inch loaf pan, and line the bottom and at least halfway up the sides with parchment paper. Alternately use a silicone loaf pan with no prep needed (see notes above).
  • Place half and half in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, add cannabis butter and butter and heat until butters are melted. Gently stir to combine well.
