Ever thought about eating your weed?
Marijuana, or cannabis, is a very versatile plant because it can be used
in several different ways. There's the ever-popular smoking method, of
course. That alone has plenty of variations including the use of
vaporizers, joints, even homemade apple bongs.
Newbies and the creative crowd though, might want to try a more unique
approach when it comes to enjoying their weed: marijuana edibles.
Simply called 'edibles', this refers to anything that can be eaten (like
candies or pastries) which are laced with a certain amount of pot. Not
every single food can be a successful edible though.
a Good Edible
Must taste delicious
Should have little to no noticeable marijuana taste (or smell)
Easy to portion so people would know how much they're taking
Since pot became legal in Colorado and Washington, there has
been a growth in businesses offering all kinds of pot edibles.
Now that shops selling recreational weed are open to the public,
it won't be surprising to see more ingenious ways to eat weed.
Why Eat Weed?
Edibles are not only fun, they provide a safer and more discreet
way of ingesting marijuana for most people. Especially those
who need their dose of medical Jane, edibles allow them to get
their daily cannabis needs without nausea or smoke exposure.
Patients who are on supplemental oxygen can't smoke weed
too, so edibles are a safer (and more delicious) option. Folks who
are concerned about their diet and health needs turn to edibles
as well because it provides the necessary carbs, nutrients, and
Terms To Look For
When selecting an edible, look for the following nomenclature:
cannabis, weed, cosmic, space, freaky, magic, enhanced,
medicated, stimulated, laced, fortified, spiked, and buffed.
These are added to the food or ingredient name, telling people
that the product contains marijuana (example: 'special brownies'
or 'space cookies').
If you wish to make your own homemade concoction, add these
special ingredients into your cart:
Cannaoil or Marijuana Oils
These are cooking oils or oil-based products infused with
cannabinoids, chemical compounds found in the marijuana
plant that are responsible for those 'feel-good' vibes. The most
well-known among them being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).
Cannabutter or Butterjuana
This can be bought in selected shops or even online. If you want
to create your own, you'll need to heat herbal cannabis or the
resin along with plain butter until the fat is infused with the
cannabinoids. It is then strained through a cheesecloth or tea
Usually brandy or rum laced with THC. This is a great way of
bringing flavor (and cannabis) to your cooking because it can
easily be added into simple dishes and drinks.
Where To Begin?
If you're new to weed or edibles, you can either make your own
or buy per-packaged ones. There are plenty of products to
choose from: ranging from hard candies and toffees, to brownies
and cookies. When making treats at home, be sure to follow the
correct measurements for pot-infused ingredients. Otherwise,
you could be taking in more than you should.
The best part about edibles? Eating time!
