Why make edibles?

With edibles, there’s no messy weed flower, no lighters, no smoke, and no ash. It’s a discreet way to consume cannabis any time of day with as big or as small of a dose as you need. If you can’t smoke or don’t like to smoke, edibles are an ideal way to consume. 

While edibles take longer to prepare and kick in than smoking, they also produce a different kind of high, one that lasts longer and gives a more immersive experience.

Common mistakes with edibles 

  • Don’t have too much at once. Edibles take longer than smoking to kick in, usually around 90 minutes. They also can take three to four hours to peak, so it’s easy to over consume if you’re not patient. Start low and go slow, giving yourself plenty of time to let the edible work its magic. 
  • Always label your edibles. An unlabeled edible is a recipe for unintentional consumption, which is not a good time. 
  • Store your edibles properly. Use an airtight container and keep them in a cool, dry place away from the reach of kids and pets. 

Dosing your edibles 

The golden rule of consuming edibles is to start low and go slow. Not only do edibles take longer to kick in, they can also be more potent than smoking. Edibles are processed through your digestive tract, where the THC is converted into another molecule, 11-hydroxy-THC. This molecule can be twice as strong as THC, so always give yourself several hours to determine if an edible is working. 

How to make cannabis butter

Cannabis butter is a staple of a cannabis kitchen because it can be used in any recipe that calls for regular butter. If you make weed butter the old-fashioned way, it can take a few hours between decarboxylation and infusion, so it’s helpful to make a large batch and store it in the fridge. If you have an infusion machine, it’s easy to whip up butter whenever you want it.

Chef Jordan’s tip

If you love a tomato and grilled cheese combo, you can dip your sandwich in infused ketchup.
