From sweet treats to savory dishes, you can find edibles for any meal of the day that appeal to all kinds of palates. While there are tons of tasty products available to purchase, why not infuse cannabis into your own home cooking? The idea of making your own edibles has struck fear into the hearts of many, but we’ll help it all make sense for you. Follow these simple recipes and you’ll be making delicious and perfectly potent edibles in no time!
THC is highly fat-soluble, so it binds really well with butter. Since so many recipes are made with (or made better by) butter, this is the perfect place to start!
The THC in cannabis needs to be activated by heat before it gains its signature effects. This is done in a process called decarboxylation or “decarbing”. It’s science! It’s chemistry!
Now you have Cannabutter and can use it in any recipe!
How do you know how potent your Cannabutter is? This will depend on a few factors such as temperature, but mostly has to do with the THC levels of the flower you started with.
One fall favorite that never fails is this delicious, hearty squash soup. Creamy, buttery, and delicious, this dish is sure to leave everyone feeling warm and fuzzy! Make your Cannabutter from the recipe above, then let’s dive in!
The potency of this soup depends on the THC of your flower. If you followed our Cannabutter recipe with 20% THC flower, this full recipe would have 25mg of THC. Divided into 5 servings, each serving would contain 5mg of THC. Check out the dosing calculator above for more details.
Making your own edibles is as simple as that! It’s best to know your flower’s THC testing levels so you can determine potency ahead of time. Flowers with different strengths and terpenes can affect the strength and flavor of your dishes, so make sure check your local dispensaries and find the strain that’s best for you!
