Making Halloween Edibles

Marijuana edibles are some of the most potent means of ingesting cannabis, and quite the adult party favor at any Halloween Party! Just make sure your guests are well informed and prepared. For connoisseurs, they can be a real hoot. But for newer consumers, it can be a little intense. 

Step 1: Cannabutter

Cannabis butter, also known as cannabutter, is a primary ingredient when infusing edibles. Most edibles on the market use some form of cannabutter which produces the high that most people want. 

Cannabutter is the beginning point of your edible making journey. You're going to need a lot of flower for this step, so save on an ounce of weed to start your process.

When making cannabutter:

  • Use high quality cannabis as a plus
  • Use fatty, high quality butter (avoid using fat-free butter or margarine)
  • Grind your cannabis (Not too fine)

Shopping List For Cannabutter

  • 1 ounce shake (make sure to grind and decarboxylate)
  • 4 sticks of butter
  • 2 cups of water
  • A non-sticking baking sheet
  • Cheesecloth (or coffee maker)
  • Airtight glass jar
  • A big pot

When you are making your batch of cannabutter, it is recommended that  you use a 1:1 ratio of marijuana flower to butter. If this ends up being too much for you and want milder effects just use less marijuana. 

Your Basic Instructions For Making Cannabutter

  1. Grind All Your Flower Up: Use a grinder or your hands to break down the flower to have an even consistency. You don’t want a fine powder in the end.
  2. Decarb Your Buds: Start by Preheating your oven to 245ºF. Use a baking sheet and put loose, ground buds on it. Let it heat for 30-40 minutes. Every 10-15 minutes, stir the flowers slowly to expose all the flower buds to heat.
  3. Let Your Butter Melt: Put your stove on a low heat. Melt your 4 sticks of butter in a saucepan or slow cooker. Add 2 cups of water, this helps to regulate temperature.Add Your Cannabis Into The Mix: When the butter finishes melting, feel free to then add the decarbed marijuana.
  4. Let Your Mixture Simmer: Set the stove between 160-200ºF, let your mixture simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. Don’t go any higher than 200ºF or you risk burning off precious cannabinoids from the mixture. Never let it come to a full boil.
  5. Strain Your Mixture: Put your cheesecloth over the jar. Then pour your cannabutter mixture through the cloth. You can throw away any plant material left behind.
  6. Refrigerate Your Final Product: The last step, put the jar of butter in your fridge. Allow the butter to solidify before cooking with it. Usually just overnight.

Cannabutter Slow Cooker 24 Hrs

Cannabutter Slow Cooker 24 Hrs

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 05 August 2022 in Canna Blog

It’s not a crock if you want to learn how to make cannabutter with your pot. Why not? Some infused butter can instantly turn your favorite foods into excellent edibles.

Weed food is a wonderful way to enjoy cannabis. While smoking, vaping, and dabbing provide faster results, eating ganja lasts longer. And if you don’t smoke, it’s an alternative way to get high.

How hard is it to make a batch of stoner spread? Not very – in fact, we’ll give you the recipe. Not sure of the supplies needed? We’ll make sure you know what to get.

We will cover decarbing your weed. A necessary step to activate the leaf so that eating it gets you buzzed.

Significantly, we’re going to focus on using a slow cooker to make cannabutter. It’s one of the best ways to cook yourself up some bud butter. Though, you can also use a coffee maker.

Finally, we’ll show you how to get good deals on all the ingredients you will need. Sound good? Let’s get into it.

cannabis decarboxlytation

Decarbing Cannabis

As noted, if you munch some raw cannabis, it won’t do much for you. That’s because it must be decarbed. That means being heated for a period of time. 

THC and CBD in fresh plants are actually THCA and CBDA. They cannot pass through the blood-brain barrier to activate your cannabinoid receptors. Those receptors are how your body utilizes cannabinoids.

Cellular receptors are key to the endocannabinoid system. The ECS regulates important body functions like pain, immunity, appetite, sleep, and mood. Body cells have CB1 and CB2 ports that cannabinoids either hook onto or block.

Decarboxylation changes the chemical structure of cannabinoids. Then they can be absorbed by your body.

To decarb, raw plant matter is spread out on a cookie sheet. Then your oven is heated to 200-245°F. Buds are then baked at 220°F for about 25-40 minutes, depending on temperature. It is now ready for consumption.

Many cannabutter recipes recommend using a conventional convection oven to heat ganja first. But you can also decarb in a crockpot prior to adding the butter.

You would place the weed you want to use in a Mason jar. Then add water to the ceramic pot until it’s half full. Place the jar inside and cover. Set the device on high and let simmer for 4 hours.

Okay, once your flower is ready, what else do you need?

slow cooker cannabutter

Ingredients Needed for Slow Cooker Cannabutter 

It's time to gather supplies.

1) For ingredients, you will want:

• An ounce of cannabis – decarbed. Think about the effects you want. If you want a bedtime snack, then select an indica. If you want something to boost you through the day, then choose a sativa. Or for balanced benefits, a hybrid strain may be best.

• A pound of salted or unsalted butter – your choice. Some people restrict sodium for lowering blood pressure. It will work with either kind of butter.

• And you will want a cup of water. Your options are bottled distilled water or plain tap water. Again, your option. Either will do.

2) Now, what about equipment?

• Obviously, you’re gonna need a crock pot or multifunction cooker.

• And you’ll need a trusty herb grinder to mulch up your marijuana. You want your cannabis chopped. That way water can surround the pieces and percolate off those all-important cannabinoids.

• Find yourself one of those metal kitchen strainers or a colander bowl.

• In the bowl, you want some cheesecloth or cloth fabric. This will further filter out particulates when pouring weedy water into the strainer. Coffee filters or pantyhose also work well for this.

• Lastly, you’ll want a plastic tub or glass jar to store your magic margarine in.

So, once you have everything you need, what’s the process that results in pot spread?

How To Make Cannabutter In a Slow Cooker

If you’ve ever cooked anything by following a recipe, you know that it’s a step-by-step procedure. We’ll walk you through the routine.

  1. It starts with grinding up that ganja into fine particles.
  2. Next is the decarbing that we talked about previously. Whether you use an oven or a slow cooker, this is a key point of the process.
  3. Once your weed is ready, it goes into your crockpot with the cup of water. Also, add the pound of butter.
  4. Dial your slow cooker to low heat and place the cover. This is where patience is important. You’re going to let it cook for between 12 and 24 hours.
  5. Why up to a full day of heatings? To get out all the good stuff. The longer you cook it, the stronger the final product will be. Make sense? You don’t necessarily need to stir the marinating marijuana mix, but you can if you want.
  6. Hold your strainer over whatever container you have chosen. The colander should be lined with the cheesecloth or fabric. You will then pour the liquid from the crockpot through it, trapping the plant matter. Make sure to press all of the liquid from your fabric. When you’re sure you’ve got it all, ball up the cheesecloth with the squeezed-out plant material. Pitch everything but the butter itself.
  7. Allow the butter to cool and then refrigerate.

Now, you can use the cannabutter in any recipe that you’d use regular butter in. Or just eat it plain. It’s your life, you be you.

Sure, you’ve got your recipe, but before you go let’s see how you can save on the special ingredient – weed.

Colorful Hashy Gyro Bowls

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 15 February 2022 in Recipes by Cousin D

I had the odd epiphany that should make medicated Gyro meat (when I was stoned the other day), so I thought, how can I turn it into a little appetizer that would be cute and fun? We're making cups out of meat!  

Start with:

1 lb 85/15 ground lamb
1 lb 85/15 ground beef

In food processor or bowl with hand-mixer, combine both meats to a pasty consistency. 

Add in the following: 

2 tbsp medicated oil 
1 tbsp ground Marjoram
2 tbsp ground cumin
2 tbsp ground rosemary
4 tbsp crushed garlic
2 tbsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp black pepper 
4 large pinches chopped cilantro
1/4 oz thyme leaves stripped from stem
1 small onion, finely-chopped

Again mix in to the pasty consistency. Your choice of strength/potency, but 1000mg is probably sufficient. Adjust to smaller amount of thyme if using dry ingredient. 

Cover and let sit for an hour in fridge to let flavors set in. Set oven to 325°. Turn over a mini muffin tin (this makes 24 cups at 3 scoops per bowl). Press and form the meat carefully around each. In center rack, set another overturned pan or tin to the right. Place the loaded pan just off to left so it lays on an angle downward to allow draining. Place another pan below to catch drippings. Bake for 30 min and let sit for 15 in the closed oven.

Remove let cool, then fill with toppings:

Hummus
Pita bread
Cucumber
Cherry tomatoes
Goat cheese crumbles
Tzatziki sauce

Cut pita bread into 3/4" to 1" squares. I filled each with hummus, pita square, half circle of cucumber, strip of cherry tomato and some goat cheese. Serve w tzatziki sauce on side. 

At 1000 mg you'd get around 40mg each. For appetizers, you could cut that down to 500mg, for 20mg each. They're delicious!

Homemade Reese's Twinkies from Cousin D

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 11 August 2022 in Edibles

Marijuana Edibles

There may be no better summer fair food than a homemade Twinkie of sorts, and today we're making them chocolate with marshmallow peanutbutter filling. Yes, they are precisely as addictive as they appear. 

Ingredients
The Cake 
6 eggs 
2 cups of flour 
3 tbsp (heaping) cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
Unflavored gelatin pack (Knox)
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil (infused)
1 tbsp baking powder
Vanilla (Good splash)
1 cup water
1 bag chocolate chips

The Filling
10oz bag of marshmallows 
1/2 cup corn syrup 
1 cup peanut butter

The Drizzle
1 bag white chocolate chips 
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup milk

Directions
You’ll need two bowls. In the first, mix all of the dry ingredients. Gently stir in the oil and water until just combined. In the second bowl, beat the whole eggs until they look like they’ve tripled in volume. 

Preheat your oven to 325 at this point. Prep your pans (any type of Twinkie pan out there) -- depending on the type, you may or may not need some oil to prevent sticking. 

Gently fold your egg fluff into the flour mix in quarter amounts.  As soon as you see no streaks of color, you are done. Pour the batter about ¾ full in each. Bake for 30 minutes, rotate, and bake for another 30 minutes (1 hour total). Cool upside down until completely cool. Do not rush that part and yes they may still be difficult to release. These are sponge cakes! Be patient and careful; when cooled, you may have to trim what becomes the bottom of the cake to be flat. Keep those scraps (they are deliciously strong).

Using a toothpick (or similar), hollow out three holes on each before you pipe in the filling--just makes it easier. Melt the marshmallows, corn syrup and peanut butter in a pan until it becomes a thick goo. Fill piping bag with a filling tip. Put a small push of goo into each hole. Flip and freeze (makes it easier to dip and sets quicker). When ready, melt the bag of regular chocolate chips, and dip each upside-down in molten chocolate. 

Next, the drizzle. Melt the white chocolate, milk and peanut butter; It should be pretty smooth and silky. Decorate the tops as you see fit -- lattice or your choice of design.   

You're done! Serve and enjoy. It doesn’t matter the dosage you choose -- these little snack cakes will disappear fast!

Homemade 'Weetos'

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 12 April 2021 in Recipes by Cousin D

Cheebo? Cheefo? You decide. Here is a somewhat easy recipe to make something that tastes a little like a homemade Cheeto, but dank and garlicky. We  couldn't decide on the best name! Weeto? This savory snack is easy to dose and scale, and even divide into gift bags for fellow home-bound friends. 

 
Ingredients:
Dough 
2 sticks butter infused with 1000mg THC 
2 tsp salt
2 tap garlic powder (heaping)
2 cups blue corn meal or regular 
2 cups potato flakes 
4 cups flour
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups water as needed
1 cup oil of choice

Coating 
8 tbsp cheese powder (heaping) 
4 tbsp buttermilk powder (heaping)
4 tbsp corn starch (heaping) 
4 tsp salt (heaping)

Directions:
Let your canna-butter soften a bit. In a food processor combine butter, salt and garlic powder with corn meal until mixed. Add in the cheese to make a dough. Dump into a mixing bowl. With your hands, work in the tater flakes and then flour. Finally, mix in the oil. Take the water you've set aside and add as needed to make a wet, workable yet not sticky, dough. Roll out the dought between parchment paper and cut to size, into 2-3" strips. 

Fry the pieces at 375 in your choice of frying oil for 3 min, and set aside to drain and completely cool.  

Now onto the coating. As for the cheese powder, if you can’t find any, just use packets from cheap Mac 'n Cheese and stash away the noodles for another day. Combine coating ingredients in a large bowl. Take note: I had ghost pepper salt to make mine extra hot n' spicy, but any will do. Cover the bowl and shake the coating onto the fried sticks. Use a colander to shake off the excess and reuse as you go along. 

By the end you’ll find yourself with enough for a huge party (for when this all blows over)--or stash them away and get high every snack hour for the next two months. Your call--Bon Appetit!
