The public perception of cannabis has transformed over the last few years, and it is becoming more and more mainstream at an ever-increasing pace. This can be directly attributed to the legalisation across North America, where several states have legalised cannabis in some capacity, and Canada, which legalised it totally for medicinal and recreational use last year.
Legalisation has had a whole host of positive effects, both socially and economically. For the average medical user, however, the main difference is the fact that cannabis is now available as an easily found medicine.
This newfound acceptance of cannabis has led to a veritable boom in ways to consume cannabis, from hand-rolled joints and bongs to vaporizers and oil capsules, there are more ways to consume your strain of choice than ever before. One way that is becoming increasingly popular is edibles.
Edibles are a way to transform your medicinal experience. They are slow to release and eliminate a lot of the downsides associated with combustion-based consumption.
A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, and this is as true with medicinal cannabis as with any other medicine. Cookies are a staple sweet food, and cookie dough is a favourite. So, clearly, the best recipe to go with is cookie dough. This is a quick and easy recipe that will make dosing easy and surprisingly tasty.
The ingredients you need include:
Some of the equipment you need will include:
Before you do anything else, you need to mix up a batch of cannabutter. You can’t just tip your cannabis into the cookie mix and expect it to do anything other than ruin the texture. Cannabis is traditionally smoked because heat is the only way to transform non-psychoactive THCA into the medically useful THC.
The boiling temperature for THC is around 314ºF. Heating your cannabis beyond this for too long will result in lowered potency. Keeping this in mind, we can heat the cannabis as follows.
Now, the next thing you need to do is infuse your cannabis into butter in order to create cannabutter, which is essential for your cookie dough.
Edibles take time to come into effect. It is best to gradually consume your edible. Patience is a necessity, so start low and go slow. A good way to dose is to take a teaspoon of the dough mix every hour and keep an eye on how you are reacting to it.
Edibles are slower releasing than other forms of cannabis consumption, so if you overindulge you may find yourself overwhelmed for longer than you’re used to. Self-regulation is key to mitigate any uncomfortable effects. Good luck with your endeavours. Hope you have a good experience and would love to hear how you get on.
