Weed Out The Bad Stuff
Before incorporating cannabis into culinary delights, ensure you work with high-quality ingredients. Ditch any stems, seeds, or leaves that might affect the flavor of the final product. You would want to elevate your dishes, not chew on a part of a plant that ruins the taste and texture.
To achieve perfection, choose the strain that would elevate your mood. For instance, Purple Kush can take your cannabis-infused snacks from a five to a solid ten. Not only would you feel light and breezy, but also relaxed. All that stress will be gone in a minute. On the other hand, if you want a dose of energy and want to feel productive, try experimenting with Sour Diesel, a proven energy booster.
All in all, different strains of medical-grade cannabis and THC oils produce different results. Know what suits you, and feel free to have the best trip of your life.
Decarboxylation – Is It Important?
How do you take your brownies from a basic AF gooey state to a lively, THC-packed party mode?The solution is simple, and it’s decarboxylation.
You can’t have a perfectly cannabis-infused snack unless you decarboxylate it. All you have to do is set the oven at 220 degrees Fahrenheit and leave the weed strain inside for at least 20 to 40 minutes. Also, remember that the process of decarboxylation will leave your house smelling like weed for a couple of hours. You have been warned in case you don’t want to disappoint your Jesus-loving mother.
Also, decarboxylation has scientifically proven healing abilities. From anxiety to inflammation, consuming THC-activated weed can make it all disappear.
Ah, the fine art of dosing! Remember, you want everyone at the party to have the time of their lives. Adding too much can only lead to yawns and unplanned naps.
Whether you’re a pro THC connoisseur or a newbie, always start low and slow. You can add more if needed, but there’s no turning back once it’s too potent. Remember, you aim for a food-induced high, not a launch into outer space.
Whip Up Some Cannabutter
Before making a cannabis-infused meal, the second step after decarboxylation is to whip up some cannabutter. Combine butter with your THC-activated weed and cook it for some time at a low temperature. Strain your mixture and let it cool for 30 minutes. There you go! You have the magic butter.
Mix your butter into the brownie mixture, or if you have been feeling lazy, you can also spread it on the bread and call it a day! Just remember always to take it slow and consume responsibly.
Making Cannabis Oil
Want to go gourmet? Feel free to infuse your cannabis in olive oil or the oil of your choice to give yourself the best gourmet experience.
The first step is to choose the right kind of oil. If you want to achieve perfection, use either olive, coconut, or avocado oil. Although coconut oil is the most efficient for THC infusion, it will not go with every meal. If you want an oil that would elevate the taste of your meals, the best option is to infuse marijuana into olive oil.
Use the double boiler method for the best results. Bring the oil to 160 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the decarboxylated cannabis and stir. To make your oil go from a zero to a hundred, add your garlic, ginger, and anything else you want to infuse, along with the cannabis.
Strain your mixture, and there you go! You have your magic potion ready to create euphoria and happiness.
Cannabis-infused tea with a hint of rose and lavender is a life changer. Try replacing your morning tea with cannabis-infused tea. It’s like hitting the reset button on your day, providing a soothing and mellow vibe with every sip.
Don’t Be Afraid To Experiment
There are no limits to your creativity. Go wild and experiment with different strains to discover unique flavor profiles. Don’t be afraid to infuse your favorite dishes with a touch of herbal goodness. Who knows, you might stumble upon the next Michelin-star-worthy cannabis creation!
It’s ‘high’ time to ditch the joints and experiment with various cannabis-infused meals and drinks. Let your creative side take charge and enjoy your legal trip to the flavor town! However, remember always to be responsible and never go overboard with the dosage. Stay lit!
