How to make edibles: Things you should know 

Before doing the process in making your preferred edible, what you need to learn is how to decarb the weed and how to make a cannabutter. 

Decarboxylation 

Decarboxylation is an important process you should need to know first before anything else. Why? Because this process will help you on how to successfully get the potency of edibles from the cannabis of your choice. 

What you need in this process is the following: 

  • Cannabis of your choice
  • Parchment paper
  • Cannabis grinder
  • Oven

Things you should do: 

Depending on the amount of edible you wanted to make, one (1) gram of cannabis can be used for 1 serving. All you need to do is grind the cannabis of your choice using a cannabis grinder. Put the grounded pieces of cannabis on the parchment paper. Preheat the oven at 240 degrees Farenheight. 

Once preheated, put the tray with the ground cannabis in the oven and leave it for 30 to 40 minutes. Once the cannabis looks lightly toasted, you set it aside and let it cool down. Once it gets cool, you can mix it with your preferred ingredient to make cannabis edibles. 

Cannabutter making

Another process that you need to know before making edibles is how to make cannabis butter. Especially when the edible of your preference is something that requires butter. Instead of just an ordinary oil, having a cannabutter will be a lot easier for you in getting the potency of your edibles.

  • A cup of water

Things you should do:

This process was already discussed above. Stir it for the butter and decarbed cannabis component to blend thoroughly. Let it boil for an hour or so but make sure that it won’t boil extremely. 

Maintain the low heat to prevent it from boiling too much given the desired boiling time. After an hour of boiling, set it aside and let it cool down.
