Take the therapeutic benefits of marijuana by some amazing recipes which will enable you to satisfy your taste buds and enjoy the experience of having edible marijuana.
Why are marijuana edibles better?
- You don’t have to have professional cookery skills for making edible marijuana.
- It is a much healthier option.
- The THC is not so effective in a smoked pot as in marijuana edibles.
- Smoking pot may be illegal, using marijuana butter isn’t.
Two important points to keep in mind:
1) Choose a high-quality strain. A high-quality strain is a secret to a more pleasurable experience.
2) Another step is to Decarboxylate. It concentrates the cannabinoids in the buds and easily converts them into the active ingredient THC.
For this, you have to bake the weed on a baking sheet at a temperature of 240 degrees for approximately a time of 25 minutes or up to 1 hour. This process is called decarboxylating. The time of baking specifically depends on your requirements and the quantity of weed you are using.
Right strain for right need:
Remember each weed strain is used for a particular purpose. Take the example of Indicas these are specifically used to treat anxiety and pain as they provide more of a relaxing sensation. On the other hand, use Sativa, for treating that nagging fatigue of yours. Just take the help of other users or vendors if you are confused in which strain to use.
The recipes to enjoy marijuana edibles need one integral ingredient of Cannabutter.
Put the decarboxylated weed, 1lb of unsalted butter and a cup of water in a pot. Simmer this for about 3-6 hours. Be careful not to burn the butter. The longer the simmering the more cannabinoids is absorbed into the butter. When the pot cools off, take out the plant and put the butter in the fridge overnight to harden. Next day, take out hardened butter from the water. This is the cannabutter which is now infused with the cannabinoids.
Now, that the main ingredient is ready, it is time to start with cooking the first item.
It is same as making normal brownies, but all you got to do is mix the decarboxylated butter instead of normal butter when you make the batter. So, prepare a mixture of eggs, pecans, water, chocolate chips with decarboxylated butter and other ingredients for your brownie mix. Take out a baking pan and grease it, put the batter and leave it to bake for 30 minutes. It is even easier to buy brownie mix, adding the decarboxylated butter into it and to bake it for 30 minutes.
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups all-purpose flour
Half cup sugar
Half cup brown sugar
A teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cannabutter
In one bowl add canna butter, sugar and vanilla extract. In another bowl, take flour, baking soda, salt and mix them well. To it add other ingredients like eggs, chocolate chip, brown sugar, and water. After setting the oven to 370 degrees, start stirring the ingredient and size the batter. To give you an idea about how to size the cookies, consider this: Half an ounce of butter means you have to make 14 cookies. Do not overeat cookies as the effects of marijuana will start kick in after an hour. Each cookie which compares to a large bowl of weed smoked gives amazing results.
A more simple approach can be to buy cookie mix and use the canna butter where oil or butter is required to be used.
¾ light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/8 cup powdered sugar
2 cups sugar
Green food coloring
Put water, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan and cook on high heat till the sugar dissolves. Lower the heat and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes and do so until you reach 300 degrees Fahrenheit, use a thermometer to check the temperature. Add the food coloring, flavoring, and canna oil after removing from heat. Pour this into a pan to let it cool. With the help of scissors give them shape or just use molds. Again, half an ounce of weed means 14-28 candies. In a pan greased with canna butter put the pieces. After that, roll the greasy candies on powdered sugar. Lastly, insert the lollipop stick into the pieces and after hardening the cannabis candies are ready.
Enjoy medicinal marijuana through marijuana edibles and avoid the harmful effect of its smoking.
