You might be tempted to bite into your cracker concoction now, but don’t. It gets better once it’s baked. Wrap your firecracker in tin foil. Don’t skip this step, as it locks in the treat’s THC while baking.
Lightly break up your flower by hand or coarsely grind it onto a baking sheet covered with foil or parchment paper. Then bake your bud for 15 minutes at 250° F.
There are many ways to decarb your weed for edibles, but here’s the most foolproof method.

Adjust your oven to 300° F for baking the firecrackers. To assemble, grab one graham cracker sheet and break it in half, so you have two squares. Spread a generous layer of peanut butter (or Nutella) on one side of each cracker. The peanut butter will absorb the THC — so the more the better!

Keep an eye on the serving size that you are using. You can even place your cannabis on a scale and weigh it before putting it inside the oven. It’s recommended to start off low if you aren’t sure of your tolerance to cannabis. With about a one-gram serving, regular users would likely feel dramatic effects. Decarbed cannabis is pretty tasty for some people, but others might not enjoy it. If you are one that doesn’t like the taste of it, you can use more peanut butter to take the edge off. You can also split up your weed and just add it to two sandwich cookies to even it out better.

Compared with other edibles, making firecrackers takes a lot less time. A lot of weed recipes out there take a lot of time to make because one of the first ingredients in most of them is cannabutter, which is the weed that is infused with a fat such as coconut oil or regular butter. This initial creation of cannabutter can take up to three hours, so if you don’t have that kind of time or patience, then firecrackers will save you the time and frustration.
There is a chance that you are pondering if firecrackers really even work, seeing how simple they are to make. Firecrackers use the same theory that edibles do. The first thing to consider is the process of decarboxylation.

With edibles, the process of decarboxylation happens when the cannabis is at a low-temperature level for an extended period of time. This retains a higher percentage of the cannabinoids when done properly. The optimal temperature to decarboxylate cannabis is different depending on who you ask. The firecracker recipe suggests 250 degrees Fahrenheit for decarboxylation to occur. The ideal temperature range for maximum potency lies between 225 and 250 degrees. You risk burning off cannabinoids with higher temperatures, and lower heat levels don’t decarboxylate as efficiently.
You should note that edibles do take a little longer to kick in than when you consume cannabis through inhalation. It can take up to an hour to feel anything with an edible. So just sit back on the couch and watch an episode or two of something while your body metabolizes the cannabis. If you’ve followed this recipe, you will enjoy a pleasant and long-lasting effect.
The easy-to-make weed edible is made from a few simple ingredients – and loaded with a potent punch
THC more readily integrates into the body when introduced with a carrier oil like butter, coconut oil or olive oil. That’s why a lot of weed edible recipes out there will include canna-oil in them. Using fat will protect cannabinoids from being broken down by your stomach acid and this gives THC a better chance to become absorbed into the body. Peanut butter is good for firecrackers because the fat in it functions as a carrier oil. This enables you to avoid having to use cannabutter but still benefit from the great effects in a recipe that is fast, easy, and convenient to make.
Now, you might be thinking, how is it even possible to make a firecracker even better? There are ways to improve your firecrackers. One way is to use organic peanut butter, which also has a few benefits. It has no additives, it has a very healthy fat content and you don’t have to worry about pesticides. If you are an extremely health-conscious type of person, you can find specific types of graham or sandwich crackers in health food sections of most stores. If you are using weed for therapeutic or medical reasons, then these healthy ingredients will not only make you feel better physically but will take any added stress away from the guilt of consuming unhealthy things.
