Cooking with Cannabis: 4 Ways to Improve Recipes

Recipes for Cannabis

For most people, the only thing more fulfilling than eating is preparing the food itself. If you are a foodie with a penchant for exploring the potentials of pot, you might want to combine your two hobbies by cooking with cannabis. Being an extremely versatile plant, you can certainly use hemp to improve your recipes. Here are 4 ways you can do so:

Have CBD Oil Ready

One of the easiest ways to use weed for your culinary endeavors is to simply mix cannabidiol oil into your recipe. You can use this ingredient in many dishes, whether it involves frying, garnishing and sautéing. If you have a signature way for making chocolate milk drinks or bullet coffee with milk, you can surely use your supply of cannabis-infused oil, especially as cannabinoids bind well with cannabinoids.

So, you can certainly make quick improvements to your dishes if you have this ingredient on hand. Just keep in mind that hemp oil can have unique aromas and flavours, depending on the strain used and the terpenes it has.

Mix Cannabis with Other Herbs

With the huge number of recipes that use various fresh herbs such as basil, rosemary and parsley, you might want to experiment and throw in a bit of ground hemp in there, too. This certainly works with recipes such as pesto sauce, as its vital ingredient is ground basil mixed with oils, nuts and parmesan cheese. Instead of only using basil, why not mix in dried marijuana? This gives your pasta a whole new and exciting kick in terms of flavor, aroma and benefits.

You can also do this for your baking. In fact, one of the most popular ways to orally consume hemp is by eating pot cookies and brownies. If you like chocolate mint bars, you can use cannabis oil alongside peppermint extract. Better yet, place a few milligrams of ground weed into the mix.

Give Your Recipe an Exciting Kick with THC Oil

Whilst the mainstream presence of cannabis is mostly based on the medical benefits CBD has to offer, another cannabinoid can also convince you to incorporate weed into your recipes. If you are looking for a relaxing body high, lacing your dishes and beverages with (THC) tetrahydrocannabinol-rich oil is the best way to go. This gives you an added enjoyment to your gastronomic experience.

This can be a terrific addition to your intimate gathering or house party. Just make sure that you inform your guests of the unique ingredient you used to avoid unnecessary issues.

Use Ingredients You Made Yourself

Nothing beats using ingredients you made from scratch. After all, it is much more fulfilling to use home-made sauces instead of store-bought ones when cooking pasta, right? So, if you want to add a little bit more challenge to your culinary adventure, why not try to make your own cannabis ingredients? This can be fun, easy and worthwhile.

You can make your own cannabis oil and butter. To do this, you must decarboxylate the buds by heating it at the right temperature and duration. This can be done through an oven (250 to 300 degrees F), microwave (high settings) and decarboxylation cookers. After this, you can simply sauté your dried weed in oil or butter, infusing the base ingredient with cannabinoids.

By combining cannabis into your cooking, you can enjoy the various hemp oil benefits whilst treating your tastebuds. In fact, cannabis-infused recipes can help nourish your body with all the regular vitamins and minerals it needs with the added perks of what cannabinoids have to offer.

Best Cannabis Recipes To Serve This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Turkey

Make Thanksgiving extra special this year by serving the most delightful dishes infused with CBD oil. The added ingredient will enhance meals, making the food experience a bliss. Because cannabis heightens the sensory receptors, everything tastes better with a hint of umami.

If you worry about the side effects, note that with an adequate amount of cannabidiol oil, everything will turn out great. You can serve Turkey with CBD oil for added buttery taste minus the greasiness. Desserts can also have this exciting ingredient for sweet and flavorful cakes, cupcakes, or chocolates.

Key Cannabis Ingredients

Aside from the cannabis oil, you also need cannabutter for making desserts and adding texture and flavor to the turkey. Cannabutter can be homemade, and some dispensaries have this specialty butter. Its only difference with the normal butter is that added cannabis oil.

For homemade cannabutter recipe, you can mix 1 cup of butter with 1 cup of ground, decarboxylated cannabis, about 10 grams. Slow cook the mixture for two to three hours then cool off before using.

Tips For Cooking on Thanksgiving With CBD Oil

Dosing is a crucial factor when cooking with cannabidiol oil. Applying a few drops into the recipe is already enough. Overdosing can only happen if you will put more oil into the recipe. Remember, if you plan to put CBD to entrée, appetizers, and desserts, you need to balance out the dosing to avoid side effects like lightheadedness, dry mouth, and change in appetite.

The best thing to do is to take it easy on the oil, distribute it to other meals and you are good to go. Additionally, you need to find a good CBD product supplier to get the desired results.

3 CBD Edibles for Your Halloween Party

CBD Edibles for Your Halloween Party

With Halloween only less than a month away, you may have found yourself dreaming up of some Halloween-themed edibles to go with your costume. From the hardcore characters of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) to the Harry Potter trio crowd favorite, there are surely endless designs to complement your next haunted gathering. Whether you’re looking for CBD oil edibles to cannabis-laced drinks, these Halloween-themed snacks are sure to knock your socks off.

CBD Edibles – Easy to Prepare Recipes

Canna-Caramels

One of the easiest treats you can make all throughout the year is canna-caramels. With its only ingredients being half a cup of sugar, 1 and a half sticks of cannabutter, 3 tablespoons of light corn syrup, and a can of sweetened condensed milk, you might just find yourself making these every so often.

To make this, simply combine all of the ingredients together over a medium-sized pot or saucepan placed over medium heat. Allow this to boil, then proceed with lowering the heat. Simmer and allow to thicken for around 7 to 10 minutes. Once the mixture turns into a golden-brown color, you’ll know that this is ready. Afterward, pour the caramel into a pan lined with wax paper and allow to cool for 1 to 2 hours. Once it hardens, cut into bite-sized pieces. To go the extra mile, decorate this with some chocolate chips which can act as the eyes and drizzle with chocolate sauce for that mummy effect.

Cannabis Caramel Apple

Caramel apples have long been a Halloween tradition for many. If you want to serve this elevated childhood staple to your guests, make sure to add some of that CBD oil into the mix and let it work its magic.

The ingredients you’ll need to make these include 8 Fuji apples, half a cup of cannabutter, half a cup of brown sugar, half a cup of light corn syrup, half a cup of sweetened condensed milk, 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract, and some nuts and candies of choice to decorate. If you are not a fan of red Fuji apples, you can also opt to use green apples as a replacement. You also need some parchment paper, wooden sticks, and a candy thermometer.

Start by placing the sticks in the apples and cleaning it thoroughly. Then, combine all the remaining ingredients except for the vanilla extract, nuts, and candies over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and mix constantly, carefully ensuring no burnt areas. Allow the caramel to thicken for 25 to 30 minutes. Then, stir in the vanilla. Once your mixture is ready, dip and swirl the apples to achieve a smooth, even coating. Decorate the apples and allow it to cool.

Dirt Pudding Cups with CBD Gummy Edibles

Dirt pudding cups are a treat for kids at heart. With colorful CBD gummy edibles topping your creation, you’re sure to encourage guests to take more than their share. Dig in and find treasures within.

For this recipe, you need a 15-ounce package of Oreos or other similar chocolate sandwich cookies, a 3.9 ounce instant chocolate pudding, 2 cups of cold milk, 8 ounces of whipped cream or any whipped topping, and 24 pieces of gummy edibles.

To make the dirt, crush the chocolate cookies until fine inside a plastic bag with the help of a rolling pin. In a separate bowl, make the pudding by mixing the packet with milk. Whisk until smooth and let sit until the mixture thickens. Once it has set, add the cream or whipped topping and half of the cookie crumbs. Divide the mixture into separate cups, top with more cookie crumbs, and decorate with CBD gummies. And voila, you’re done!

 

Make your celebrations more interesting this Halloween. With these cannabis recipes, you can definitely have a real good time with fellow cannabis enthusiasts.
