There exist so many ways of making cannabis edibles at home. This article focuses on making delicious cannabis edibles at home so that beginners can take advantage of their cannabis by seeing different ways to use the plant.
Begin Low and Slow
The impact of cannabis consumption usually come with a slower starting time and can be experienced within 30 minutes or requires about 2 -3 hours to kick in. The initial dose of infused oil is about 2.5mg-5mg for beginner users, 10mg, and more for professionals in the field.
Choose Your Strain Correctly
As you prepare to make your cannabis edibles, you may want to choose the strain you like to cook with. Cannabis is divided into two main types of cooking: Sativa and Indica. Sativa strains usually have an uplifting and creative effect, while indica strains often enhance deep body relaxation.
If you are planning to become very alert after eating your cannabis edibles, then its preferable to choose a sativa strain. However, if you are planning to have a more relaxing night, then choose an indica strain.
- When you pick up your strain, insert the cannabis buds in the teeth of the grinder (these can be bought in many stores online). Turn and twist until the top becomes more relaxed, then unscrew the base to remove your freshly ground cannabis.
Ensure to grind your cannabis moderately because if you grind it too hard, then your butter or oil may turn out lesser in quality.
- Place your smooth cannabis on a baking tray and place in 220°F (do not surpass 250°F) oven for 25-30 minutes for the decarboxylation process to occur. This process changes the plant’s non-psychoactive cannabinoid THCA into psychoactive THC. Use a spoon to stir constantly to ensure that the cannabis is evenly de-carb. When the cannabis turns into golden brown, then it has completed decarboxylated.
- Put the de-carbed cannabis, oil or butter, along with the sunflower lecithin (this helps bind the THC to the fat molecule) in a slow cooker. Make sure the temperature on your slow cooker is set to low/warm and simmer for 6-8 hours. You will also need to stir for per every 30 minutes continually. Ensure to add your favorite dried spices or chilies to improve the flavor of your butter/oil.
- In 6-8 hours, slowly pour infused oil into a mesh strainer while allowing the oil to pass through to eliminate the plant material gradually. At that point, your cannabis edibles will be infused with THC. After that, you can safely store it in an area less accessible for children and pets when not in use
- Leave your cannabis butter to set in the fridge. Immediately it becomes firm, and you can use it for any purpose that requires butter/oil.
