Methods of THC extraction
– cooking oil (soak in for a week)
– flour – Another method that doesn’t require cooking is cannaflour. Grind the cannabis up as fine as you can get it, and mix it with the following ratio: for every cup of flour, mix in a half cup of powdered cannabis. Your final product is cannaflour, and you can use it in just about every baking recipe.
– weed – If you’re in a hurry you can also do the following: melt some (dairy) butter in a pan and throw in some weed; stir a bit, and then fry an egg (or a pancake or whatever) in it. Don’t throw the weed away, it will still contain some THC. Eat the egg or whatever you made. Sweet stuff (honey, syrup, marmalade) tastes good with weed.
Why would you want to cook with weed? Well, there are a couple of reasons that come to mind:
1) Different high. Eating weed produces a different high than smoking weed does. Some describe it as “deeper” or as having more of a body sensation.
2) Sore throat. When you throat is feeling a little scratchy or flat out raw, you may not feel like smoking weed to get high.
3) Smell. If you are afraid that someone will smell pot on your breath or on your clothes, eating pot offers a valuable alternative.
4) Taste. This may be a shock to you, but some people don’t enjoy the taste of weed when smoked. If you are one of these people, you can see how eating the weed in a sweet food will help to mask the taste and still get you high.
Don’t expect to get high right away when eating pot in food. The high usually takes 40-60 minutes to fully “creep” up on you. Also, if you consume a lot, don’t expect to do much the rest of the day. Eating pot can really burn you out.
Why Pot Butter?
Cooking with pot butter allows you the freedom to eat your weed without biting into any stems and seeds. Why would you spend so much time cooking a desert just to have it ruined by the suspended scraps of weed? By following the recipe at the bottom of this page, you will be able to create one batch of pot butter to be used in any recipe you like. You can use the recipes I have given or create your own, but the key is to have fun.
For Best Results
For best results, don’t smoke weed before eating your marijuana treats. You be will tempted to break out your best piece while waiting for the high to kick in; try to hold out. When you realize you are high (and haven’t smoked herb all day) it’s really cool!
Chronic vs. Stress
When cooking with marijuana it is recommended that you use a low to medium grade harvest. This may seem contrary to what you have read thus far, but good weed is simply too expensive to eat and the “high” produced by consuming quality weed is not worth the extra cost. Save your chronic for another day.
What are the effects?
It can take anywhere from 20 minutes to even up to 4-5 hours for the effects to set in. The biggest problem here is to find the right amount. When smoked, the effects set in almost immediately, so it is easy to judge how much you need. After eating some weed, some users are too impatient, and they think they need more. While it is not possible to overdose on weed, the effects of eating too much cannabis are not pleasant. You may feel sick, confused, unable to move or talk, and your coordination may be heavily affected. These effects may last a long time, much longer than when smoked. It is therefore important not to eat too much. Start with a low dose, and increase it the next time, if needed. Experiment to find the right amount. If you eat too much, a high dose of vitamin c (200mg or more) may help to make you feel better.
When eaten, pot takes longer to work, depending on: the amount and quality of the weed/hash, the rate of your digestion system, and the amount of food you’ve eaten beforehand. For best results, we recommend not eating anything at least 2-3 hours before eating your marijuana.
