IMPORTANT TO KNOW BEFORE MAKING CANNABIS RECIPES
Consuming cannabis through food is a delicious way to medicate, but it can also have unintended consequences if you don’t know what you’re getting yourself into first.
There are a few things to keep in mind before you start cooking up weed recipes.
Always use cannabis that has been decarbed first and make sure it’s potent enough for the recipe you want to try, no matter how small or large of an amount is required. Be mindful of the THC dosage when making edibles.
CANNABIS RECIPES HAVE A DELAYED ONSET OF EFFECTS
It is important to know is that it could take anywhere between 30-minutes to several hours to feel the effects of your cannabis edible as it makes its way through your digestive system.
There is a risk of over-consumption and not feeling the effects, so it’s important to start with one bite or one small edible.
The best way to measure your dosage is by milligrams (mg) per serving size which can be found on most cannabis packaging.
THC IS FAT SOLUBLE
CANNABIS RECIPES CAN BE MORE POTENT THAN SMOKING
When cannabis is eaten, it goes through the digestive system.
It is broken down by enzymes in the liver and converted into a THC-acid form.
This means that eating weed will result in higher concentrations of THC than smoking it because some THC gets destroyed when smoked.
THC can be more potent if consumed through edibles versus inhaling cannabis vapors or smoke from combustible materials.
This intoxicating metabolite causes more potent, increased intoxicating effects for most edible consumers.

DON’T SKIP THE PROCESS OF DECARBOXYLATION
Before getting started making any of these staple recipes it is important to note that all raw cannabis must be decarboxylated.
The process: Place your cannabis in a preheated oven at 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 Celsius) for ten minutes and then let it cool before grinding the weed into fine dust or small granules. This is done to “activate” THC from its acid form of THCA.
DETERMINING FINAL RECIPE POTENCY
Without knowing the concentration of CBD or THC in your starting raw material, it is impossible to determine the potency of your finished product.
Some recipes will require higher concentrations of weed, while some can get by with less and still pack a punch. The only way to know for sure what you are working with is to have lab-tested cannabis on hand so that you can test how potent your starting material is before doing anything.
Fresh Cannabis Chimichurri
Pesto provides endless opportunities to improvise as cooks can recombine any leaf. For this weed pesto, I tried to match the flavor and fragrance of mint with cilantro.
Grind weed into fine dust or small granules. Mix in about a quarter cup (60 milliliters) oil like canola or olive oil with ground weed for every two cups of leaves.
Are you ready for the weed chocolate?
Usually, we use at the recipes cannabis oil or butter but chocolate contains cocoa butter so we could put weed directly.
