Making Edibles 101

Making edibles is a fun, easy, and rewarding way to consume cannabis. They can also be an inexpensive alternative to purchasing pre-packaged pot brownies or cookies from a dispensary. URL

Edibles can be made from many different recipes, but the common base ingredient is infused oil or butter. The heating process decarboxylates marijuana flower, causing the cannabinoids to diffuse from the plant and dissolve into the oil/butter.

Dosing your DIY weed infusions correctly is crucial for getting the right effect. There are a few basic math formulas you can use to determine how much weed infusion to make:

First, multiply your starting amount of marijuana flower by its percentage of THC (i.e., 20%). That will give you the total THC content of your edibles.

Next, divide that number by the amount of infused oil or butter you will be using. As a rule, you should use half the amount of infused oil or butter that is a standard portion size for 216 edibles.

If you want to get more creative, there are a variety of recipes for infused gummies, hot sauces, and other liquid-based concoctions. However, it’s important to note that these types of ingested products don’t have the same shelf life as homemade baked goods without THC or CBD in them.

So if you’re looking to keep your cannabis edibles fresh, be sure to store them in a sealed bag or container. If you don’t, they will go stale and lose their effects.
