How To Make Cannabis Edibles

Most people have tried it all – blunts, oils, vape pens, etc. – but there’s just something magical about Cannabis edibles.
Edibles are safe, discreet, and effective. For people with certain medical conditions, edibles are the only way to ingest cannabis.

Benefits Of Edibles

Cannabis-infused edibles, such as capsules, tinctures, oils, chews, and gummies, are commonly used to maintain a healthy appetite, aid in pain management, relieve nausea and vomiting, help with insomnia, and improve anxiety.
When smoked, cannabis is absorbed directly through the bloodstream via your lungs and then travels directly to the brain before circulating to the rest of your body.
However, when eating an edible infused with cannabis, THC is absorbed into the bloodstream through your digestive tract, then is metabolically processed through the liver before entering the bloodstream. This process forces your liver to metabolize delta-9 THC into 11-hydroxy-THC, which hits harder and faster than traditional smoking habits. Although everybody’s level of tolerance to cannabis is different, these products generally take anywhere between 30 minutes and 2 hours to take effect.

Infusing Your Edibles

There are many different ways you can infuse your edibles. Most edibles, including the infamous homemade brownies, use cannabutter to produce a high, and it’s one of the best ways to enjoy cannabis if you don’t want to smoke it.
Aside from cannabutter, there are a wide variety of oils that make great alternatives. Avocado, canola, coconut, and olive oil – the possibilities are endless. Any oil with a high-fat content will do well in extracting the activated THC, CBD, or other cannabinoids after decarboxylation.
Coconut oil is the most versatile fat to use for cannabis edibles. You can use coconut oil for making vegan baked goods and cooking at higher temperatures.

Know Your Dosage

Individuals should be very cautious when using edibles, especially for the first time. The strength of your edible depends on many factors, including dosage, tolerance, body weight, and metabolism. Typically, the effects increase as the dose increases. However, consuming too much cannabis through edibles is incredibly easy to do, and it can cause adverse effects, such as nausea and vomiting.

Mystery Baking CannaButter

Mystery Baking’s CannaButter infuses the finest indica trim with creamy sticks of rich butter to create 4 ounces of the most potent butter ideal for cooking, baking, or spreading over toast. Let your imagination run wild in the kitchen and infuse any dessert or dish you’d like. Some of our favorite edible recipes include Caramel Infused Chocolate Squares,  Rosemary Meyer Lemon Bars, and Strawberry Brownies.
Remember, start low and go slow. After infusing your food, have a few bites, wait 45-60 minutes, and have a little more if you desire stronger effects.
