Cannabis edibles are supposed to help you relax, so why should making them stress you out? Creating your own cannabis oil can be a nightmare, between the lengthy process of decarboxylating flower and the complicated steps involved in simmering your own tincture.
By using Crescent Canna cannabis oil and cannabis powders, you can easily craft your own cannabis recipes. Follow these tips on cooking with cannabis to make flawless and fun cannabis-infused dishes and beverages.
Cooking With Cannabis Powder
Since it’s tasteless and odorless, cannabis powder is incredibly versatile. Because of this, you can easily mix it into all kinds of dishes and beverages to infuse them with cannabis.
To use cannabis powder in cooking you do need to procure certain tools to measure it. You can use gram measuring spoons or a scale to measure out accurate doses. Once you’ve measured it out, simply add it to your dish of choice and thoroughly mix it in so it’s evenly dispersed throughout. It’s that simple!
Cooking With Cannabis Oil
You don’t need anything more than a bottle of Crescent Canna CBD Drops or THC Syrup to cook with cannabis. Each bottle comes with a dropper that displays accurate dosage measurements, so dosing edibles and drinks is simplicity itself.
You can drop our cannabis oil right into food or drinks. Try matching the flavors of our fruity CBD Drops and subtly sweet THC Syrup with the flavors of the dish or beverage that you’re preparing for extra taste enhancement.
How to Cook With Cannabis
When cooking with cannabis, keep in mind the maximum temperature that it can reach before starting to lose potency. Cannabis begins to evaporate at temperatures between 350°F and 390°F, so avoid recipes with temperatures higher than or around 340°F.
Crafting no-bake confections is a great way to avoid overheating cannabis and depleting its potency. You can also cook dishes that include a topping or dressing cannabis powder can be mixed into, so you can just drizzle it over food once it is out of the oven or off the stovetop.
It’s also a good idea to make recipes that include some kind of fat. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble, so your body absorbs it better when it’s surrounded by fats. Whether you’re using cannabis powder or a cannabis tincture, make sure your dosage is evenly distributed in the food or drink you prepare. This will ensure that everyone eating or drinking your concoction will experience the same dose.
