If you have certain health conditions, you might want to look to cannabis to manage your symptoms. Getting your Oklahoma medical marijuana card online just takes a few minutes. Once you have it, you can enjoy a snack and your daily dose at the same time.
Before Making Edibles
For any weed edible, you need to decarboxylate the herb first. That just means leaving it in the oven at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for about half an hour. That makes your cannabis more potent by activating the THC. Without this step, your edible won’t have much of an effect. You can use decarboxylated cannabis to infuse butter, which can be used in nearly every recipe. If you’re vegan, you can substitute olive or coconut oil. First, melt the butter in a pan and add some water to prevent scorching. Add your herb and let it simmer for a couple of hours. Strain the butter in a jar to remove the bitter-tasting bits of cannabis. You can use a funnel if that makes it easier. Put it in the refrigerator so it can harden before you use it. The water will likely separate, so drain that off before using melting it for a recipe.
When you think of cannabis edibles, brownies might be one of the first things that come to mind. The reason they’re so popular is that even when you add marijuana to food, it often has a bitter taste. That’s especially true when you need to add more of it to your recipe when you have a medical condition that requires a higher dose. But chocolate is a strong enough flavor that it does a pretty good job of covering up any bitterness. They’re simple to make too. Just find your favorite brownie mix and swap out the butter or oil for your cannabutter. If you don’t want your marijuana in the oven, you can make chocolate buttercream frosting instead. You just need confectioner’s sugar, cocoa powder, cannabutter, and a little milk. Spread it on the brownies while they’re still warm.
Sometimes, you might not be feeling baked goods. As the weather warms up, you might look forward to a cold treat. It’s surprisingly easy to make cannabis ice cream and customize it however you want. Warm about two cups of cream in a saucepan and add your sugar and cannabutter. Stir until it is well-mixed and chill until cold. Once it’s cold, use an electric mixer to whip the cream several minutes until stiff peaks form. Switch to a lower speed and add a cold 14-ounce can of condensed milk. Toss in whatever add-ins you like. Chocolate chips, nuts, fruit, and flavorings like vanilla extract are all options. Put it in a container, cover with plastic wrap, and seal it. Put it in the freezer overnight or at least six hours before trying it. While it might not taste exactly like store-bought ice cream, it’s a fun project and lets you accurately measure out your dose. Plus, since it’s cold, you might not be as likely to notice any bitter flavor.
