With the general public’s stance on marijuana decidedly different than it was a decade ago thanks to changes throughout the country, allowing both medical and recreational usages in various states, a happy byproduct is that we have better information than ever when it comes to making weed edibles — a delivery.
However, knowing how to make edibles requires a certain amount of knowledge, both cooking and marijuana, to craft the perfect batch.
Unfortunately, you can’t get that by simply slapping some pre-bought mix on a cookie sheet, adding crumbled weed, and lobbing it in the oven. Never fear, though. We’ve got you covered when it comes to how to make weed edibles.
The Actual Items You Need
So you’ve got some weed and want to start making edibles. That’s a good start. In fact, many might be more at ease handling the marijuana aspect of this gambit than the cooking. But rather than think of your weed edible’s potency as the number one goal, instead, think of getting some quality chocolate and also know other benefits of CBD.
Like with junk food, picking the right strain for making edibles depends on the mood you’re in and the social situation you’re planning for. A simple question to ask is, Daytime cookie or nighttime cookie? Although weed impacts everyone differently, sativas give users energy and indicas are better for relaxation and sleep.
Want your cookies to make you want to get up and conquer the world? We suggest Sour Diesel, White Widow, Casey Jones, Golden Goat, or Lemon Skunk.
There’s a reason why marijuana is most commonly smoked rather than eaten. Without heating it or burning it, raw weed is non-psychoactive, chock full of THCA, and considered a superfood by some, who note 400 different chemical compounds inside the plant, including vitamins, essential oils, and acids.
Thus, to begin the edible weed process, a chef must prepare the weed, so the elements that make a person feel high are present in the pastry.
The boiling temperature for THC is 3140 F, and heating your cannabis too much for too long will result in lowered potency. However, the process itself is simple:
- Preheat your oven to 2400 If you have an oven thermometer to measure the true temperature of the oven, it’s even better.
- Break the leaf down into more manageable pieces and place on a cookie sheet as if toasting spices. Don’t overload the marijuana, so pieces are on top of each other.
- Put the sheet in the oven and monitor for 30-40 minutes depending on oven strength and the strain of weed. You’re looking for a golden brown color as opposed to an untoasted leaf’s more vibrant green.
- Take it out of the oven and let the toasted marijuana cool. Then put the cannabis in a food processor and pulse it for a second so its ground grossly.
