Can you eat cannabis?

Can you eat cannabis?

Yes, but it will require two transformations. First, it must be heated beforehand. The “raw” plant doesn’t contain cannabinoids as effective as CBD. This requires decarboxylation (i.e. Heating. Decarboxylation is what happens when you smoke cannabis. However, it takes a little longer to do this when you cook.

You can either decarboxylate your plant in an oven, or during cooking. You’ll need to follow our suggestions: use temperatures and cook times that release the cannabinoids without burning them.

The second is that the cannabinoids have to be extracted from the fat. Cannabis is not assimilated by our digestive system, so it will need to be infused with an oily liquid.

You will see that you won’t be able to consume the cannabis flower even if it is decarboxylated. Lipophilic means that cannabis is biologically accessible, in comparison to oil. Infusing cannabis into fat is necessary to make it available to the body.

Two of the most popular methods for turning cannabis flowers into marrakech butter or oil are:

You might also think that marrakech butter is unnecessary if the recipe has a lot of butter. Two reasons are why you would be wrong. Second, cannabinoids won’t be absorbed in butter if it is not properly cooked. It is much easier to cook with butter and oil than with vegetable matter. Are you a fan of bits of herbs in chocolate fondant? It’s worth the effort, even if it takes some time.

It reduces the flavor of the herb and chlorophyll, and focuses instead on the terpenes which are the unique flavors of cannabis.

You can also control the amount of cannabis in your butter/oil by treating it. Imagine that you are going to use 50 grams of cannabis in a recipe. This will result in a lot of plant matter and could cause problems with your recipe. You could still get the same amount in 50 grams butter. However, the original recipe calls for the butter to contain the cannabinoids. It is important to cook with cannabis oil.

What form of cannabis can you eat?

You can make your own Marrakech butter or oil. You can also use CBD cannabis oil concentrates and add it to your recipes. Because our cannabis oil has been pre-decarboxylated, it is only necessary to add a few drops.

Are there any differences in the effects of cannabis smoking and eating?

Yes. The effects of cannabis inhaled are instantaneous. You don’t need to wait for the effects to kick in. Although the first effects fade in a matter of minutes, you’ll feel them for approximately two hours. Burning also allows you to get all the cannabinoids, terpenes and other benefits of cannabis.

Before cannabis can be ingested, it must first be digested by the body. The bloodstream will then transport the cannabis to the brain. The effects of cannabis will then be felt after you have eaten it. This can take anywhere from one to three hours. It is more gradual and the effects last longer than when the cannabis is inhaled. Ingestion of THC should result in a different perception of the effects. A sufficient amount of THC should cause a more euphoric feeling, along with a feeling of lightness and well-being. Because you have only burned some molecules, the decarboxylation process will be partial. Another will not be, as you have not reached the boiling point. You will not be able to benefit from all the cannabinoid potential of the plant.

Is it dangerous to eat cannabis?

Overdose can cause severe side effects, and can be very dangerous. If you are using cannabis with high levels of THC, this can happen. Because CBD flowers and CBD oil do not contain enough THC, they cannot cause the effects described below.

Although a “bad experience” may occur when you smoke cannabis, it is less likely to last than when you inhale it. The person who is unable to stop smoking cannabis will be the one who has the most severe reactions. An overdose is not felt until one hour after the cannabis has been consumed. This person could have consumed large amounts of cannabis in this time. An overdose could lead to an emergency department consultation just like an alcoholic coma.


To avoid overdoses, you should test the oil, butter, or concentrate in small quantities to determine its potency. Marrakech butter can be made many times, so the final concentrations of cannabinoids may vary. You can increase the amount of cannabinoids by tenfold. This means you can make butter 10 times as potent with the same recipe.

Warning: If your cannabis has not been decarboxylated prior to being processed, you’ll need to test the concentrate after cooking or preparing your dish in order to feel the effects. You’ll need to be careful not to eat too much!

For brownies, for instance, we recommend you try a small amount, then wait at least three hours to evaluate the effects. People who rush to get high often believe that cannabis isn’t effective and end up taking too much. You will be more satisfied if you don’t get greedy.

You should not plan any activities within the first 8 hours. Relax and enjoy the experience. Avoid being in stressful situations during ascension (1 to 3 hours after ingestion).


Decarboxylation refers to a chemical reaction where a CO2 (carbon dioxide molecule) is removed by heating an organ molecule bearing a carboxyle group. It must be heated to decarboxylate cannabis.

How to decarboxylate Marijuana

Preheat the oven to 110°F.

The cannabis flowers should be chopped finely. The pure cannabis leaves can be used, but they have very low cannabinoids.

Bake the plant material for 45 minutes on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

You should monitor the cannabis and stir it occasionally during decarboxylation. Reduce the heat if you have heated the cannabis too much.


You will need the following items to prepare cannabis butter:

– Large pan

– Large mixing spoon

500g or more of butter

– 1 oz (7-10g) of decarboxylated, ground cannabis

– Use a clean cloth

– A container that has a lid


– Decarboxylate your Marijuana

– Bring large quantities of water to boil. Then, submerge the herb in the water and stir gently.

– Drain the mixture gently after ten minutes.

– Once the water has been changed, bring it back to boil, and then add the butter and herb.

Mix well and let simmer for approximately an hour.

Place the herbal substance in a clean, dry cloth. Next, wring the material out over a container.

Refrigerate for 24 Hours

– The fat has risen from the cold and is now hardened. Now you have space butter!

To get the most out of your Marrakech butter, you can drain the water and boil the vegetable and linen remnants in whole milk.


– Heat the oven to 115°C

To decarboxylate your cannabis, place the cannabis sprouts onto a nonstick baking tray. To prevent the cannabis from sticking, cover the tray with baking parchment.

– Bake the tray for between 30 and 40 minutes.

Gently stir every 10 minutes.

Using a hand grinder, grind the decarboxylated Marijuana.

1. Add 1 cup water to 1 cup butter to a saucepan. 2. Heat on low heat.

Add your cannabis powder to the butter once it has melted.

Let the mixture simmer for at least 2 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally. It should not come to a boil.

Place a clean cloth over a container. Allow it to stretch.

Enjoy your cannabis butter chilled.


– Use a hand grinder to grind the herb, similar to a coffee grinder.

– Turn the slow stove down to 70 degrees. To avoid cannabinoids burning or wasting, do not exceed 90 degrees.

– Stir in the butter and ground cannabis. Stir frequently.

– Close the slow cooker after 3 hours.

– Allow your butter to cool before you can enjoy it!


Marrakech butter can be stored in the freezer for a long time. You can spread it on bread, toast, or cookies. It can be melted on vegetables and added to recipes that require butter.


Cannabis olive oil can be used for cooking and as an external treatment for most skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.


7 grams of cannabis inflorescences, ground and removed from stems and seeds

65 milliliters extra virgin olive oil of high quality. (If you don’t love olive oil, coconut oil is also available). Coconut oil can be used in most recipes, even exotic ones, and olive oil is the most nutritious choice when it comes to cooking oils.


1. Firstly, grind the Marijuana. This may seem like a good idea. However, don’t make too many pieces. They will end up in the strainer. You can use the entire plant instead of just the flowers.

2 – Heat the extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil in a large saucepan. Add the ground cannabis to the pot and heat on low heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally. The equipment you use will determine the time it takes to cook.

3. Slow cooking is the key to decarboxylation of cannabis. This allows you to activate and extract the THC while not burning the things that give you the high.

4. Using a slow stove, turn it down and allow your oil to cook on low for at least 6-8 hours. You’ll need to cook the oil on low for 6-8 hours if you use a double boiler. You’ll only need to cook it for 3 hours if you use the old-fashioned casserole. However, you will need to stir the oil often to keep it from burning.

Tip: No matter what method you use, the oil temperature should not exceed 50 degrees. This will cause the THC to be destroyed and render the oil inedible.

5. – Allow your cannabis olive oil to cool down for a few minutes, and then strain it. Use a gauze to protect your cannabis oil from being squeezed with your hands. This will cause more chlorophyll to be added to the oil and make it bitter.

6 – Keep your oil sealed in an airtight container. It will last for two months if it is stored in a pantry, as all oils. However, if it is kept in the fridge, it can be used for up to three months.


Marijuana Flour, Marijuana Oil and Marijuana Butter are all preparations that can be made once and stored for future use.


1/2 cup (coffee), of Marijuana that is not too thick and finely ground. A grinder is a better option.

For every 1/2 cup of Marijuana, 1 cup flour is required.

– Coffee grinder

You can choose how much flour you want to make. You can use the flour more often if you make more.


Ensure that you have removed all stems, twigs and seeds from your Marijuana Top.

You should ensure that the Marijuana is dried before it is stored. This will prevent mold growth.

– Finely grind the Marijuana.

Mix the flour with it.

– Keep it in a dry, cool place.

It’s that simple. This Marijuana Flour can be used in any recipe that you have specified.
