Easy Cannabis Edibles Quick Recipe Guide

Edibles are one of the most popular ways to consume marijuana. In fact, many new users prefer edibles to smoking. But some people would rather make their own concoctions than rely on pre-made ones. So what are the easiest edible recipes to make?

Here are five super simple edibles you can make at your own home.

  1. Cannabutter

Butter is delicious. Cannabis is also great. So why not combine the two? All you have to do is start melting some butter and then add in a gram of marijuana that’s been decarboxylated until it melts into the butter as well. And you’re done. >> Link to full recipe

  1. Cannabis Tea

Now that you’ve got that cannabutter, why not use it? Just brew yourself a cup of tea, add in a teaspoon of the cannabutter and you’ve got yourself a nice little potion! >> Link to full recipe

  1. Cannabis Brownies

Brownies are a classic edible. Here’s the easiest way to do it. Find a brownie mix that requires oil, heat ground up marijuana with the oil, then pour that oil into your brownie mix. Then just follow the instructions and you’ve got some simple brownies! >> Link to full recipe

  1. Kief Cookies

You know all that kief that’s left over in your grinder that you don’t know what to do with? Here’s something simple to do: put it in some cookie dough. You should probably heat the kief in an oven for a little bit first, but otherwise you just stick it in the dough, put the dough in the oven and you’ve got yourself some Kief Cookies! >> Link to full recipe

  1. Firecracker

The “Firecracker” requires only three ingredients, an oven and 30 minutes. All you need to do is spread peanut butter on top of a graham cracker, sprinkle ground up cannabis onto the cracker, place another cracker on top, wrap in foil and cook in an oven for 30 minutes. And you’re done! No actual cooking skills required! >> Link to full recipe

“Cannabis-infused butters and oils can be made from scratch at home using dry flower. The overall concept of infusing butters and fats with cannabis involves submerging the dry material in the desired carrier fat and gently heating it to slowly extract the cannabinoids from the plant material. The mixture must then be strained to remove any remaining plant material. The infused fat or oil can then be substituted at a 1:1 ratio for any food recipe.

It’s relatively easy to cook with cannabis and make homemade edibles, but it can be very difficult to make edibles that are dosed properly. For consistent dosing, effects, and taste, consume manufactured edibles and check the labels for cannabinoid contents to find what product suits your needs.”

How do I figure out what dose is right for me?

The right dose is different for everyone. Start with a small dose, especially if it’s your first time or it’s been a while since you’ve used cannabis. Each person’s response to a dose of edible cannabis can vary significantly, more so than with other medications or herbs. The *standard dose* is considered 10 mg, but someone new to cannabis or with low tolerance should start with half of that. Trial-and-error is an integral part of finding the perfect dose for a great experience, just remember to start low and slow.”

How long does it take to kick in?

The amount of time it takes for the effects to kick in varies and also depends on your metabolism. People with faster metabolisms may feel effects after an hour; people with slower metabolisms may not feel the effects for two hours or more. An important factor is whether you consume the edible on an empty stomach or after you’ve eaten. An empty stomach will feel the effects much more quickly — a full stomach will keep it from hitting you as hard.”
