The cannabis industry is booming. There are now medical dispensaries, recreational shops, and even products you can buy at your local grocery store. But when it comes to making edible cannabis, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. The unfortunate result is that many people end up eating a marijuana-laced product that they don’t enjoy because they made it incorrectly. This article will teach you the basics of how to make edible cannabis and avoid this problem.
How to Pick the Right Ingredients
The first step to making edible cannabis is picking the right ingredients. You’ll need butter, flour, water, salt, and a sweetener of your choice. Some people choose brown sugar or agave nectar for their sweetener. Before you begin cooking, it’s important to measure out all the ingredients correctly so that you can avoid any complications in the kitchen. The butter should be at room temperature and the flour should be sifted before adding to the mixture.
Next, combine all of your ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until it forms into a dough ball, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Now you can form your pasta by using two teaspoons to drop small pieces onto a cookie sheet or cutting board that has been lined with wax paper. After rolling each piece into desired shape (there are many options), place them on another layer of wax paper on your drying rack and allow them to dry for 20-30 minutes.
Dosage and Portion Size
The first step to making edible cannabis is to understand the dosages and portion sizes. When it comes to dosage, you can’t take a guess – especially if you’re cooking for someone else. You need to be precise, especially if you’re cooking for someone who doesn’t know their tolerance level or which strain they should use. The best way to be precise is by using a milligram scale.
Portion size is also important – there are many recipes that call for too much oil or butter, which will result in an unpleasant and over-the-top taste. It’s also important to note that THC absorption is highest when edibles are consumed on an empty stomach (a couple of hours before eating). This increases the intensity of the effects and how long they last.
Avoiding the High-maintenance Problem
One of the biggest problems with edible cannabis is that they require a lot of work. Many people want to create their own edible cannabis because they think it will be less expensive, but they often find that they don’t enjoy the final product and end up throwing them out. Additionally, there are so many different factors that need to be monitored when making edible cannabis. From gauging the potency of your marijuana to calculating the dose for each cookie, there are a lot of things you need to keep track of.
There are many ways to consume cannabis, and the best way really depends on the individual’s needs. But if you’re looking to make a THC-infused edible that will get you high, then there are a few things you need to know. This guide will help you find the right ingredients, dosage, and portions so you can enjoy the effects of edible cannabis without getting too stoned.
