In recent years, the popularity of cannabis edibles has increased considerably, and dispensaries are selling all kinds of products. Some products, such as gummies and candies, are best purchased from a known dispensary, but you can also make some amazing cannabis edibles at home. Baked goodies, like brownies and cookies, are worth trying, and if you don’t know much about cooking, you can even stir-fry a few chopped veggies in cannabis butter or oil. In this post, we are sharing tips on cooking with cannabis.
Making cannabis oil/butter
Raw cannabis shouldn’t be used to cook anything, because it is important to get the cannabis ready first, so as to activate the desired compounds called cannabinoids, primarily THC and CBD. To make cannabis oil, first preheat your oven and place the cannabis flowers on the top of a baking tray. You have to crush the buds before using them, but don’t turn them into a fine powder. Place them on a baking sheet placed on the tray and cook for at least 20 minutes. You will find that after 20 to 30 minutes; the cannabis will look brown or light brown in color.
Now grind your cannabis and add it to your choice of butter or oil. You have to heat the mixture for at least two hours on a very slow flame, and then, just strain the plant matter. Your cannabis oil is ready to be used
How to make cannabis edibles?
If you have ready cannabis butter at home, you can always choose to add it to any recipe of your choice. For baking brownies or cakes, get premixes from the market, and instead of your regular butter, use the cannabis butter or oil as we mentioned. You can adjust the dosage as needed, but always go slow.
Things to know
Cannabis edibles take longer to show the effects, so always try edibles in small doses. Making your own edibles and baked goods at home has many benefits. Firstly, you can be precise with the cannabis that is being added, select a strain of your choice, and review the taste. Secondly, you can be assured that the product is as genuine as it can get. However, the effects of edibles can last for hours, so ensure that you don’t have any serious or immediate work to do immediately after consuming cannabis.
