Your body can process marijuana through the digestion system by eating weed edibles, but this takes way longer for the THC and CBD to take effect, but the high lasts much longer and can be more intense than smoking. While that sounds awesome, it’s very easy to over-medicate and spend the next 4 hours with a spinning head.
Edibles come in every form possible. Weed pasta? They got that. Weed cookies, pot brownies, Nanaimo bars? Been around for ages. Hard candy and gummy bears? Yep, and they’re delicious.
The principle of making marijuana edibles is the same; mix the dried cannabis/concentrate with butter or oil, then use that butter/oil for cooking. It’s that simple. There are a few different ways to prepare the cannabis, and the recipe only have to include butter or oil. So the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
The key to success at edibles is masking the bank taste of cannabis flower, and making consistent doses per portion.
That taste. There’s no denying it. It’s awful. But it also serves a purpose. If you are eating a brownie that doesn’t taste like weed at all, you may think it’s weak. As the high takes at least an hour to kick in, you may eat too much. We’ve been there and done that. There’s a balance a baker must find between taste and flavour. The edible must be enjoyable to eat, but there still should have a faint hint of weed.
It’s up to the recipe to make sure the taste is palatable. Nuts, sugar and chocolate are all great for hiding the dankness amongst flavour. Finding the edible that tastes great to you is a matter of preference and trial and error.
As far as the potency is concerned, that’s up to the butter. There are several ways to fuse cannabis with butter or oil, and each process follows the same principles of heat, mixing, time and separation. What the baker must be concerned with is the standardization of the process. Being able to accurately weigh the amount of medicine in each portion is crucial to patient safety.
Uneven doses between portions will leave the user without a baseline to safely ingest the cannabis edibles. If 1 brownie didn’t work the first time, they might try 2 the next. If the second batch is far more potent, that person is in for a rough ride.
