Step 1

If you like to make cannabutter like a professional, then it is better to heat the cannabis in a proper manner. Complete activation of THC within the weed can be made possible in the process. It is a kind of technique that is recognized as decarboxylation. For the decarb process of the cannabis, the oven must set to 240°. The cannabis must be spread on the baking sheet in a single layer. Baking the cannabis for about 40 minutes. Even heating can be ensured by turning the weed. Following baking, you may come across crumbly and dry weed. During this time, butter can be added to the tray.

On the stove, boil water in a saucepan. It is important to make sure that the Marijuana has been lying one inch to ½ inches above the pan at every given occasion. While the water is boiling, butter can be placed on the pan to melt. Minimum four butter sticks must be used for one ounce of Marijuana. Therefore, two sticks of butter can be used with a half-ounce weed.

How to make Canna-oil?

 

When making choices, try to be health-wise. Health is important to well-being. Physical health as well as mental health are both important. In addition to the food we eat, we need to take other steps to ensure we maintain good health for the long term.

Sugary foods, fat-laden snacks are best avoided. Instead, consider including cannabis infused coconut oil, olive oil to stay healthy.

Since everyone has their own favorites and likes and dislikes, choose a cannabis recipe that you can make part of your life in the long term. In general, create a diet that includes whole grains, nuts and seeds, leafy green vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, eggs. Staying as close to nature as possible when it comes to eating is important so avoid processed food which is artificial, or fake food.

Our food and lifestyle choices very much dictate how healthy we are going to be. The term superfoods was coined to create that group of foods that provide energy, nutrition and boost vitality.

Cannabis is also a superfood in the sense that it provides phytocannabinoids like THC and CBD. Free radicals cause much damage to the body and to counter their ill-effects, we need antioxidants. There are some food items that don’t require much planning and time to prepare.

How do you prepare cannabis infused oil? Having canna-oil on hand could be a good way to save time during the weekdays when you need to cook quickly.

Make the oil or butter in advance and store it on your counter or fridge as required. The oil you choose will depend on your preference. Usually, coconut oil, olive oil and canola oil are preferred. Personal preference will take precedence here. Coconut oil is a new addition to many kitchens around the world. Canola oil is mild, and coconut oil has a fragrance that some may not like. Refined coconut oil has no coconut taste.

The important thing to note is that THC will be released into the oil and butter during the boiling process. We don’t want to lose it.

When making canna-oil, be care with the proportions. The proportion that works best is one ounce of good weed trim, flower and bud, and 2 cups of oil. The other point to take note of is the two-inch layer of water below the cannabis-oil mixture throughout the cooking process.

Once the oil cools, store it in a container in the fridge and then spoon off the top layer.

Ingredients –

2 cups of oil

1 ounce of potent Marijuana

 

There are sites that say boiling reduces the potency of cannabis. It is best to keep the heat on low throughout the process. If you need to use the oil for cooking on high heat, use regular oil and use the canna-oil only for cooking items on low heat.

You can also separately fry one item in canna-oil and add that to the dish just before serving.

Eating healthy is an important requirement to maintain good health. Bodily health is important to have a long life and stay healthy for longer. Health depends much on what we eat as well as how active we remain.

Eating healthy food is essential since it not only provides us nutrition but also energy to keep going throughout the day. This constitutes consuming food items that do not add to the calorie scale without actually adding to our benefit. Fast food, usually referred to as junk food, is food that does not have any nutritional benefit. Avoiding packaged processed food items, eating the right amount of calories, avoiding sugar and salty foods, etc. are small measures that we can take to remain healthy. Other than eating healthy, exercising is important to lose weight and maintain the ideal weight. Staying fit is a goal for many. Working out for five days a week while also eating right is the best way to stay fit.

We have heard that cannabis can be included in our diet. The herb is required only in small amounts to have the desired effect. It gives energy. To be sure you are on the right track, just keep a handful of the herb in your pantry.

Bring out your coffee grinder and grind the cannabis into a fine powder.

Put the milk in a pan and get it boiling. When it starts bubbling, add the fine powder into it slowly. Keep the heat low or else the milk will boil over. This mixture will simmer for an hour. Keep stirring in between to avoid the mixture from sticking to the bottom and the milk from boiling over.

Do not cover the pan or the milk will boil over.

Cool the milk. After it is reasonably cool, strain the milk through cheesecloth. If required, strain it twice to ensure there’s no sediment at the bottom.

Pour the milk into an airtight container, add your favorite blended fruits and store it in the fridge. If you want, you can drink it right away too.

Remember the expiry date of the milk. It’s no good wasting food.

Here are the ingredients of this simple recipe.

1 cup of milk

1/8 cup chopped cannabis

Strawberries, banana or other fruits.

 

Increase the amount of milk and the herb if required. Remember that during the hour of boiling, the milk will reduce in quantity. Hence, you may want to add more milk or water as necessary.

Ingredients:

1 cup of milk

1 cup of water

1 teaspoon of butter (here you have the option to use regular butter or cannabis butter as per your choice)

Hot chocolate mix

Coffee filter

1-2 gm of cannabis weed

 

Methods:

At first, you need to finely grind up the cannabis weed in a grinder. It needs to be mixed well in the water along with milk and the butter.

Like other hot chocolate drink preparation, the butter is an important step here. Since THC is not water -soluble, you cannot get as stoned until you add butter into it.

Maintain a minimal boil for the water. Of course, you want the hot chocolate drink to be hot, but excessive boiling of the water is not good for THC extraction.

Now, let the mixture heat up for around 10 to 15 minutes. When you smell a kind of almond like aroma coming out from the mixture of water/butter/weed, take your favorite coffee mug. Now, pour the hot chocolate mix in it.

Take a coffee filter and keep it on the top of the mug and then pour the hot liquid in the mug. It will help to strain out all the cannabis buds from the liquid. Now, stir the chocolate well and enjoy the cannabis hot chocolate in the winter.

You can also bring some twist in the drink by adding some whipped cream as well as cinnamon if you prefer. This chocolate drink is enough to keep you high throughout the night due to its intense effect. Hence, you need to plan ahead to stay home in the chilly winter nights.
