Secondly, this is the best method to cook with weed easily and still produce great results.
Are you ready for the weed chocolate?
- Dark chocolate or milk – 3 bars
- Decarboxylated cannabis – 2 gr
- Nuts, dried fruit or other additions for the chocolate (optional)
- Melt the chocolate in a microwave or by placing it in a heat-proof dish on top of boiling water.
- Mix your decarboxylated cannabis and chocolate together.
- When it all melted together, you can place it into a mold. Add vanilla or dried fruits if you want.
- Thoroughly check for any air bubbles, give the mixture a light tap on the table to be sure, then refrigerate.
We usually cook with cannabis oil or butter, but since chocolate contains cocoa butter, we could theoretically put weed in it directly. As for dosage, each gram of weed contains around 150mg of THC. So eating an entire bar would equate to consuming 100mg of THC. Please don’t do this all at once- take small pieces first and wait 1 hour before having more if necessary.
How to store cannabis chocolate?
It’s best to wrap edible weed chocolate in foil and store it in a cool, dark place. Chocolate is very porous and absorbs all kinds of smells, so if you don’t cover it up, it will start to taste like whatever else is nearby.
consuming chocolate is typically a healthier and tastier alternative to smoking weed because it doesn’t affect your lungs.
You can experiment with the taste to add nuts or aromas to make the chocolate with your desired flavor. Also, it is ridiculously easy to make– as you can see, no special equipment or long list of ingredients needed.
Chocolate can help reduce stress, and adding weed to it can further increase its benefits!
How to make cannabis butter?
The key to many weed-based recipes is cannabutter, which can be used in pies, cookies, and cakes. One advantage of cannabutter is that you don’t need to replace all the normal butter in a recipe–a little bit goes a long way. Here’s how it works: cannabinoids from the weed attach to fat molecules and after some time they become one component. With this cannabutter, you’ll be amazed at how many options you have! And the best part is that for making weed butter, you can use any type of marijuana – there’s no need to buy some special kind. In fact, it’s better to use saving weeds residue for butter.
How and where to keep it?
You can freeze weed butter to make it last for up to six months. Another way to store it is in the fridge where it will stay fresh for several weeks. Just be careful with other strong smells, as butter can easily absorb them.
So, how to make easy marijuana butter?
- 1 cup of butter
- 7-10 grams of cannabis (already decarboxylate)
- You need to mix 1 cup of the butter and 1 cup of the water (we use it to prevent the butter from the scorching).
- Then grind the cannabis with a grinder.
- When butter melted, add the cannabis into it.
- Put the temperature around 70°С and let butter and cannabis mixed during 2 or 3 hours.
- Strain the cannabutter through the cheesecloth and put it into the fridge.
- In 1 hour check if there is some water still and take it out.
Start with a small dosage: you don’t need to use everything for one cake. Just add ¼ or ½ teaspoon and see how you feel after eating one portion.
How to make cannabis tincture?
Tinctures are marijuana extracts that use alcohol or glycerin as a base. They were one of the first ways people medicinally used cannabis before it was prohibited. Now, you can easily make weed cold brew tincture at home for a wide range of uses — especially if smoking isn’t your thing.
It is important to use food-grade liquids when cooking with cannabis. For example, in the USA, a popular alcohol to use is Everclear, which is grain alcohol. Another option is Bacardi 151, which contains 75.5% alcohol. If you’re looking for a nonalcoholic alternative, glycerin works well too.
Why it is sometimes better than other variants of using weed?
The effects of tinctures typically dissipate quicker than those from edibles since the THC in food is “trapped” by fats, like cannabutter or oil. Also, it can be tough to consume large amounts of tinctures due to their taste (unlike a chocolate cake, for example). With sweets and fried foods, it’s easier to overdo it than with tinctures.
What are weed tinctures used for?
Cannabis tinctures can be added to a variety of food and drinks, giving you the freedom to use them in any dish. For example, you can make gelatin bears with it, put some drops into your soup or salad dressing, juice or ice cream. Once you understand the best dose for you, simply choose your favorite way to consume cannabis tincture and add the required amount to any dish.
Let’s see how to make a tincture from weed!

The typical method of consuming tinctures is to place it under your tongue and wait for absorption into the tissue beneath. As far as cannabis tincture dosage, start with 1-2 drops and after about an hour or two, you’ll know if the effects are sufficient.
How to store it?
Alcohol tinctures can last for several years if kept in an amber or cobalt glass bottle and stored in the fridge. Glycerin tincture, on the other hand, will only stay fresh for a few months when refrigerated.
