Yo, what’s good? If hitting the blunt is the king of all weed experiences, then making weed edibles is like the queen, you feel me? Dabbing might be hot for a minute, but smoking and eating your weed is taking it to the next level. But before you start dumping your bag of weed into your favorite brownie mix, there’s some crucial shit you need to know about how to make cannabis edibles.
Smoking the best strains will get you high as a kite lickety-split – like a bullet train. But eating weed takes 30 minutes to three hours to kick in. And let me tell you, when it comes to cannabis and cooking, less is more. Don’t go eating too much too soon just because you’re not feeling it right away. Eating weed is different from smoking, and it’s way more intense and lasts longer.
So, if you’re ready to cook with marijuana, here’s what you need to know. First off, don’t even try to mask that dank-ass smell. Embrace it or find a ventilated space because that sh*t lingers for like 48 hours.
Next up, dosing is key when it comes to edibles. It ain’t easy to get the right amount of weed for the perfect effects. You gotta know how much THC content is in your bud first. Most weed has an average of 10-15% THC content, so if you don’t know how potent your herb is, just assume it’s at 10%.
Once you know your THC content, convert the amount of cannabis you have into THC milligrams. One gram of bud has about 1,000 mg of dry weight, which means that one gram of cannabis has about 100 mg of THC if you’re using a weed with a 10% THC level.
Now, let’s talk about kief. Kief is the sticky crystals on your weed, and it’s loaded with cannabinoids and terpenes. You can use kief to make butter and oil or add it to anything you’re cooking. Mix kief into cookie dough, and voila – you got yourself some kief cookies.
Don’t sleep on shake, either. Shake is the leftover parts at the bottom of your weed jar, and it’s perfect for making cannabutter. Save the top-shelf buds for smoking and use the shake for cooking.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff – weed brownies. They’re delicious, easy to make, and packed with chocolate and weed. Here’s how to do it: preheat your oven to 350°F, grease your baking dish with regular butter, and melt some chocolate in a saucepan or microwave. Then mix sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, water, cannabis butter, and melted chocolate. Add eggs and flour and whisk for three minutes. Pour that sh*t into your baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Let that sh*t cool, cut it up into pieces, and enjoy.
But why stop at brownies? You can make weed cookies too! Preheat your oven to 350°F and mix cannabutter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Then add baking soda dissolved in water and blend in another bowl with flour and salt. Mix them together and add chocolate chips. Bake that sh*t for ten minutes until golden brown.
And if you want to make cannabis oil instead of butter, use coconut oil because it absorbs more cannabinoids than regular butter. Heat one cup of oil with one cup of decarboxylated weed strains until the blend simmers for 45 minutes (or eight to twelve hours in a slow cooker). Filter that sh*t with cheesecloth and put it in the fridge.
But wait – there’s more! Weed gummies are super easy to make and come in all sorts of delicious flavors. Mix water and juice in a saucepan for ten minutes, add your tincture, and sprinkle in some gelatin until it dissolves. Pour that sh*t into molds and let it cool.
And if you want to make savory snacks, use cannabutter instead of regular butter on your popcorn or bacon. You can even sprinkle some weed strains on top of your bacon and bake that sh*t at 275°F for the ultimate “canna-snack.”
When it comes to choosing the best strains for edibles, Blue Dream is always a solid choice with its 60:40 ratio of sativa and indica. Skywalker OG is great for pain relief, while Bubba Kush is perfect for inducing sleep. White Widow is versatile for cooking and baking, and OG Kush CBD is excellent for blending with different foods.
So there you have it, fam – everything you need to know about making weed edibles. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your recipes once you get the basics down. And remember – less is more when it comes to cannabis and cooking. Happy eating!
