Now to decarboxylate! If you’re using THC-dominant cannabis, set the oven to 250F. For CBD-rich strains, set it to 295F.
Before we get into how to make edibles, let’s make sure you got everything you need.
If you don’t have a specialized appliance for decarbing, you’ll need a few more things. Start with a large pot which you must clean your flower (more on that below). With clean buds, you’ll need an oven and baking sheet to decarb.
Now you can get started with creating your own canna oil, canna butter and/or RSO. Remember to test the dosage with 1 teaspoon for potency and to take notes on your experiments.
Learning how to make edibles is a fun process, especially with the proper guidance and tools. We’ll let you know when we’ll have cannabis cooking appliances in our dispensary.
When the time is up, congratulations! You’ve decarbed your medicine and you’re ready to infuse your oil. Now start making tasty meals, snacks and/or drinks. More on those details here.
Of course, you need cannabis flower to get started. But consider this before you hop on a bulk shake or ounce sale:
- What type of relief are you looking for?
- Which strain(s) provide that relief?
- What’s the THC percentage?
This can come down to preference or what your aim is. If you’re looking for the healthiest option, experts recommend creating canna oil with a coconut oil base. THC binds well to fat (coconut oil has plenty) and the oil can also offer major health benefits. Other options are olive, walnut and avocado oil.
