Nearly all people learn how to make marijuana edibles through personal experiments that have their fair share of “trial and error.” However, there are a number of common mistakes that you can be on guard for as you venture into your journey of marijuana culinary delight. The following are some tips to help you stay clear of making many mistakes.
Decarboxylate Your Weed
Fresh cannabis will not transfer its effects to the different food items to which you add it. The effects of the weed can only be unlocked through a process called decarboxylation. To decarboxylate the weed, heat the marijuana on its own before you add it into your recipe. You will know that decarboxylation has occurred when the smell of your weed gets overpowering. Now is the time to add the marijuana to the products you are preparing. If you add raw weed, what you prepare will have a terrible taste and no one who consumes those edibles will get high.
Grind the Weed Sparingly
Finely ground weed is hard to strain from the oil you infuse it in, and the edibles you prepare will have a grassy taste as well as a green tint. Avoid these problems by grinding the marijuana sparingly so that it remains in sizeable particles that can be caught by a strainer. Grinding the marijuana in your hands is a good way to avoid overdoing it, so leave your fancy grinder out of this.
Stick to the Basics When Heating Weed
As a beginner, it is helpful to heat your oven to 245°F before you let the marijuana heat for between 30 and 40 minutes. As you gain more experience, you can tweak the temperature range and the duration of heating depending on how you want your edibles to taste. Otherwise, forgetting the basics of heating will result in costly lessons that will leave you frustrated that you just can’t seem to get the process right.
Err on the Side of Caution When Determining Dosage
Did you prepare the cannabis-infused oil yourself? Establish how strong it is by taking a teaspoon of that oil and observe how your body and mind respond in an hour. The buzz you feel will guide you on how much oil to use when making different servings of marijuana edibles. In this way, you will expect how high each edible will make you and there will be no unpleasant surprises.
