Making marijuana edibles at home carries an intimidation factor for those new to the practice, but anyone who’s created infused butter, cooking oil or baked goods knows how easy it really is. For most of us, the challenge is finding enough time and weed to do the job — but even that doesn’t need to be tough.
Personal-sized edibles are just as easy to make as full batches, and in desperate situations, you can do it in a rush with very small amounts of weed. As long as you have infused butter or cooking oil handy — and both of them are very easy to make in small batches — the options are endless. If you don’t, the options are more limited, but you’re not without hope.
Food and weed: how to mix them?
Well, we all can have a normal joint but the combination of marijuana and, for example, chocolate, can let you get some new experience and feelings, enjoying the interesting taste. We have already written about edible cannabis, with the main advantages and basic things, such as decarboxylation of weed, but now we want to share with you some easy cannabis edible recipes and tips for cooking with cannabis. In general, using weed in cooking is super easy, to get started, go to the cannabis club in Barcelona and choose the strain you want to use, be sure to check with budtender the dosage of THC. Now you need to do some preparation:
- to decarboxylate it
- and then, according to the recipe, make cannabis oil, cannabis butter or flour and after you can cook whatever you want.
One should note here that sweets are the most popular type of food which could be cooked, but the oil you can use for pasta, vegetables, salads, and many other dishes. Here we will share with you the most simple weed recipes, and for some of them, you just need 1-2 ingredients and a bit time to cook.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
You could always create a fire cracker — a homemade edible made with cannabis flower, peanut butter and graham crackers — but why not have a little taste? Infused peanut butter has become my go-to when traveling. If you’re able to score hash or kief, it’s incredibly easy to make: Just decarboxylate (heating your cannabis or hash to activate the THC) and melt the hash in a bowl inside your oven for ten to fifteen minutes. Then, throw a few scoops of peanut butter inside the bowl, and put it back in the oven at 230 degrees for about ten minutes. Take out the bowl, stir the peanut butter, then put it back in the oven. After another ten to fifteen minutes, take it out, stir one more time, let it cool, and store it in the fridge.The peanut butter soaks the melted hash right up, is very easy to make in a rush, and won’t draw any attention when you eat it in front of others. If you know the THC potency of your hash, it’s relatively simple to calculate dosage, so you can make it potent enough to get stoned off one scoop or lean enough to make a PB&J.
Tasty Edible Recipes
For anyone that likes to indulge in some flower, you know it can make so many things, such as music, extra enticing. It also happens to give us a case of the munchies, especially if you’re a late-night partaker.
We’re willing to bet you’re no stranger to the midnight snack.
If you’ve been wondering how to make weed edibles, then we got some top recipes to try out here.
This is a great one to start out with because it can be the building block for almost anything. Unless you’re vegan, butter is in more foods than you probably know.
Here’s how to make it:
- Melt butter in a saucepan (add a little water to keep from burning)
- Add your ground, decarboxylated weed and simmer for 2-3 hours
- Strain the butter into a jar (for example, you can use a funnel with cheesecloth to catch the ground-up weed)
- Refrigerate jar of cannabutter!
The bacon craze may have calmed down a bit in recent years, but it’s doubtful the salty treat will ever be completely out of style.
To make your own weed bacon, simply sprinkle ground, decarboxylated flower on one side of each bacon slice. Bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit and flip after about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle the second side and repeat for another 10 minutes.
Fun fact: You’ve now got cannabis-infused bacon grease leftover to use in other dishes!
Cannaoil can be another foundation of many different recipes. Here’s how to make that:
- Combine an ounce of ground, decarboxylated bud to 2 cups of oil (coconut, vegetable, etc.)
- Heat for at least six hours or more without boiling
- Use some water to keep from burning
- Strain the oil from the ground-up bud
This weed-infused oil could be the perfect combination for an oil-based salad dressing.
You knew it would end up here. It’s a classic for a reason.
Let’s take your newfound experience with cannaoil (see #3) to make some bud brownies. Simply use eggs, water, and your cannaoil and mix in with your favorite brownie mix.
Line it up on a cookie sheet and bake at 330 degrees Fahrenheit for about half an hour.
Marijuana Ice Cream
Sometimes, baked goods just don’t do the trick, and you need a cold and refreshing treat.
Weed ice cream is surprisingly easy to make and you can dress it up however you like. To make this, do the following:
- Melt about 16 ounces of heavy cream in a saucepan at about medium temperature
- Melt your cannabutter and add sugar
- Mix together and add whatever you want (fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.)
- Freeze overnight
If you make enough, you might have a freezing sweet treat for multiple nights to come.
There’s nothing quite like a warm cup of cannabis tea to start your day off right. This one is pretty simple and easy, so you should have no trouble getting this one off the ground.
Brew up your favorite tea – whatever it may be – add about a teaspoon of your cannabutter and sweeten with milk, honey, and/or sugar.
Heat your milk in a saucepan over medium-to-low heat. Add ground, decarboxylated weed and heat for about 45 minutes.
Remove the concoction from the stove and let sit for about 10 minutes. Strain the milk from the ground-up weed (again, you can use something like a strainer or a sieve with a cheesecloth).
Refrigerate your weed milk, and you now have a prime weed edible to add to your breakfast cereal!
