Yo, what up? It’s ya boy Dan, and if you’re like me, you’ve smoked enough blunts and bowls to last a lifetime. But have you ever tried THC powder? This shit is the future, fam. It hits you way faster than regular edibles and your body absorbs it way better. Plus, you can make it right at home.
As we all know, the edibles game has come a long way since ancient times when humans were drinking bhang. But until recently, edibles were hella inaccurate and took forever to hit. Fortunately, technology is advancing and we now have fast-acting edible formulas that use emulsifiers and micro-sized particles to take effect in as little as 10 minutes.
But why do regular edibles take so damn long to kick in? Well, when you smoke or vape weed, the THC enters your bloodstream quickly and gets you high right away. But when you eat it, your stomach and liver break down the cannabinoids before they enter your bloodstream. That’s why you’re waiting around for anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours before feeling high.
But with THC powder, you can skip all that bullshit. The cannabinoids are encapsulated in water-friendly carbohydrate coatings that allow them to penetrate your bodily tissues quickly and enter circulation fast. And not only does THC powder hit you way faster than regular edibles, but your body absorbs much more of it too.
So let’s get down to how to make this shit. First, you need to grind up 5g of your favorite cannabis strain into a coarse powder using a grinder. Then, spread the ground weed evenly on a baking tray covered in baking paper and bake it at 115℃ for about 45 minutes to decarboxylate the non-psychotropic THCA into “activated” THC.
Next, put your weed into a mason jar, add 32g of coconut oil and half a teaspoon of sunflower lecithin powder (the emulsifier), and stir thoroughly. Then screw the lid onto the jar and fill a saucepan halfway full with water. Boil for two hours (make sure to top up the water if it evaporates too quickly).
After that, strain the mixture through cheesecloth into a mixing bowl. Add 150g of maltodextrin (this ingredient is high in carbs and adds a water-soluble element to the blend) and mix thoroughly. Finally, sieve the powder onto another sheet of baking paper to create a fine consistency and store in a clean and dry mason jar.
So now that you’ve got your THC powder, how do you use it? You can mix it into almost anything – soups, salad dressings, sauces, tea or coffee – the possibilities are endless. And because it’s so easy to dose (a teaspoon of THC powder is roughly 4g), you can calculate exactly how much THC you’re getting every time.
Keep in mind though that water-soluble THC is still pretty new territory, so there’s not much data about how it works in the body. And because it has a higher bioavailability than regular edibles, less material will get you higher than usual. So go slow, experiment, and find your sweet spot.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a new way to get high that hits fast and hard, THC powder is where it’s at. It’s easy to make at home and offers way better bioavailability than regular edibles. So what are you waiting for? Get baking!
