The Lowdown on Cooking with Cannabis: Don’t Forget This Key Tip

The Lowdown on Cooking with Cannabis: Don't Forget This Key TipYo, what up fam! It’s ya boy Dan here to drop some knowledge on making edibles. Edibles are lit for all occasions – home, camping, the beach, the outdoors, or just chillin’ indoors. But lemme tell ya, there’s one key thing you gotta remember.

Summertime is here and it’s the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors. Beach days, camping trips, hikes, long walks, or just kickin’ back on the porch and vibin’ with nature. And what better way to enhance those moments than with some homemade edibles? If you’re into cookin’, there’s a crucial factor when it comes to cookin’ with cannabis that can make a HUGE difference. It ain’t just about the taste, but also about the journey.

To cook with weed, you don’t want that plant flavor takin’ over your dish completely. And you definitely wanna watch that dosage – nobody wants a 50mg s’more, am I right? One key step that even some seasoned chefs may forget is decarboxylation. It’s a game-changer when it comes to infusing cannabis into your dishes.

Decarboxylation is all about removing carbon atoms from a carbon chain. Basically, it converts THCA to THC. And we all know THC is the main ingredient responsible for that euphoria or “high.” When weed dries out, it naturally converts THCA to THC, but decarboxylation speeds up that process. Here’s how you can do it right.

You’ll need some finely ground marijuana, a baking sheet or pan, and if you got it, some baking parchment. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Lay out your herb evenly on the parchment-covered pan and bake at 225 for 45 minutes.

Now, just like with BBQ, there are a bunch of vital secret rules to step up your game. Higher heat might burn your weed and mess with the taste and potency. Low and slow could be the move, but keep in mind it might release more odor. Ventilate properly and set a timer – especially if you’ve already been puffin’.

Your cannabis is now ready to be added to butter or turned into tinctures or oils. Butter and oils work better than just throwin’ weed straight into the mix. THC is oil (and alcohol) soluble, so when you infuse it properly, you get more of that effect without that strong plant taste.

When it comes to cooking with cannabis, there ain’t no standard dose like with alcohol. It varies from person to person. Share your cooking plans with an experienced budtender at the dispensary for guidance. Check out the THC percentage before you start cookin’. Start small to gauge how much THC you’re addin’ to each serving.

Remember, smokin’ weed hits quick and fades fast. But edibles take longer to kick in and can last way longer. Newbies beware – eat too much too soon and you might be in for a wild ride. Start slow, take notes on how much you consume, and adjust for next time.

So there you have it – cookin’ with cannabis ain’t just about throwin’ some weed into your recipes. It’s an art form that requires precision and patience. Now go out there and whip up some bomb edibles for your next adventure!
