Making The Perfect Edible – Yum!! Edibles are slowly becoming a popular method for ingesting marijuana. But why is that? Well, some marijuana users are not able to smoke it. Therefore, alternative methods must be around to suit the needs of those who cannot smoke weed. So that leads us to edibles. The fun and discrete method to ingest marijuana.
Making The Perfect Edible – Pre-Made Option
But how does one go about making the perfect edible? Well for starters. The baker would definitely need some canna-butter or canna-coconut oil. In this day and age, it’s pretty darn easy to go online find a dispensary and order just about anything online. Or one can simply go to a dispensary as well if that options available. That being said, when choosing to purchase butter or coconut oil online. Ensure that the maker if the product is reputable. Even though the product contains marijuana, it still has to meet safety and health requirements. So make sure that your product is coming from a company who tests it, and can provide the tests results if requested. A good sign to look for is if the nutritional values of the container. Obviously tests had to be taken to get those results.
Purchasing coconut oil or butter online’s relatively a good price, considering all the work one would have to do to even get the product in the first place. So to drop $40-60 on a small tub of either oil or butter’s a great deal to me! I get about 4 different cooking options from one small tub. So that could mean one batch of brownies. One batch of mini spiced carrot cake muffins. “magic” mushrooms. (My Dad thinks calling mushrooms with canna-butter magic mushrooms is just the funniest thing.) And lastly asparagus. Note that when I cook veggies in butter, I cook quite a bit of veggies to soak up all that goodness. If mushrooms have been made, generally steaks are cooked as well. Then, with the left over butter. I put that on my garlic toast and steak. YUM.
Making The Perfect Edible – Make Your Own
Should you choose to make your own canna-butter, (making canna-butter and canna-oils essentially the same process.) That being said. Making either’s fairly simple. If you have a bunch of shake or trimmings. Now’s a good time to use them up! (One of the bonuses of growing your own weed…shake and trimmings for edibles!) Cool, so you’ve got the weed. How much do you need? Well. to make one block of butter, I’d use at least an ounce. For a stick of butter? Half an ounce. To make one cup of coconut oil,
After the weeds obtained. Set the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Take a baking pan, lined with parchment paper and spread the weed/shake/trimmings on the pan. If using buds, bust them. Once the ovens heated, open the door and carefully place the pan inside the oven. Set the timer for 15 minutes, but keep an eye on the weed. Ensuring the weed does not over heat. Over heating the weed ruins the potency. Decarboxylating the weed (the act of heating/burning weed) releases the cannabinoids. Essentially the same act that happens when weeds smoked in a bong/joint or pipe.
Once the weeds dry. In a sauté pan, add the butter or oil. Take note that rapidly adding heat to either oil or butter will drastically effect the potency of the final product. And could even burn the product before it’s even used. Cook nice and slow, have patience. Add water when necessary to prevent sticking and burning. After the oil or butter’s melted, add the decarboxylated weed. Stir frequently. Cook for about 3-4 hours. The cooking time could be drastically lowered to even 30 minutes. However, many say that the longer the oil or butters cooked for the better the final product. Again, stir frequently.
Next, take a cheese clothe and place over a small container or small metal pot. Carefully pour the mixture over the cheese clothe. Letting the butter or oil drain into the container below. Once the mixtures cooled a but, squeeze the cheese clothe so even more butter or oil is collected below. Place the container in the fridge. After sometime, check the product. Any water will have dropped to the bottom. And the butter or oil will be floating on top. Carefully collect the final product in a separate small container for later use. Finally substitute any baking or cooking you do with the canna-butter or canna-oil. Whatever the amount of oil or butter the recipe calls for, use the same with the canna product! Or add a tablespoon to your veggies! Add more depending on the amount of veggie being cooked. Use your judgement! Don’t go all crazy.
