Cooking with cannabis is a fun and exciting way to enjoy the benefits of this incredible plant. However, before you start making those delicious cannabis-infused brownies or cookies, you need to know how to infuse THC or Cannabis into oil or butter.
The first step in cooking with cannabis is to choose the right strain. Each strain has its unique flavor profile and effects, so it's essential to choose one that suits your needs and desired outcome.
Decarboxylation, often called "decarbing," is an essential step in maximizing the potency of your canna butter. During this process, the cannabis flower is gently heated, activating the THC compounds within. This transformative step not only unlocks the psychoactive effects of the plant but also imparts a delightful toasty and nutty flavor to your final product.

The first step is to calculate the THC content of your cannabis flower. To do this, you'll need to know the THC percentage. This information is usually provided on the packaging of your flower, but if you don't have it, you can estimate it. Once you know the THC percentage, you can multiply it by the weight of your flower to get the total amount of THC. For example, if you have ¼ ounce of flower with a 10% THC content, you'll have 283.5 milligrams of THC.
The next step is to adjust the THC content for the recipe size. In this recipe, we're using ¼ ounce of flower, so we'll need to divide the total amount of THC by 4. This will give us 70.9 milligrams of THC per ¼ ounce of cannabutter. The typical edible dose is between 5 and 10 milligrams of THC. So, if you want to make a batch of cannabutter that will last you a while, you can use a lower dose. For example, if you want a batch that lasts a week, you could use a 5-milligram dose.
Now that you've learned how to infuse THC or Cannabis into oil or butter you're ready to start cooking with cannabis. Cooking with cannabis is a fun and creative way to enjoy the benefits of this amazing plant.

Cooking time and temperature can vary based on the recipe you're using. It is important to note that cooking with cannabis requires a longer cooking time and a lower temperature than traditional recipes. This is because the THC needs to be activated and absorbed into the fat molecules of your infused oil or butter. Make sure to follow recipe instructions very carefully and avoid overheating or burning your infusion.
Edibles are a popular way to consume marijuana, and they offer a discreet and delicious way to experience the effects of the plant. However, it's essential to remember that the effects of edibles can be stronger and longer-lasting than smoking or vaping, so we’ll say it again it's crucial to start with a low dosage and adjust.
