About a decade ago, edibles were more of a specialty item compared to flower. But now, edibles like candies, gummies, and other products are more popular than ever.
This is great news because people realize that edibles are a fantastic way to enjoy cannabis without many of the negative side-effects of traditional smoking. There are a lot of benefits to using edibles over other methods.
You can avoid damaging your lungs with smoke from typical combustion methods like smoking, and you can skip having to buy an expensive vaporizer.
On top of that, you don't need to keep eating edibles all day to stay medicated. Edibles can last an incredibly long time, providing hours and hours of soothing relaxation.
One of the best things about edibles though, is that you can make them yourself. If you can think of an edible, you can probably make it. The sky's the limit!
Read on to find out how to unlock your inner chef and make a few different types of delicious edibles.
Skip the Cannabis Butter
"Another advantage of using THC syrup is the metered dosage. Within each THC syrup bottle, you know exactly how many milligrams of THC it contains."
In the old days, to make edibles, you'd have to make a batch of cannabis butter or oil. The process would take nearly the entire day, make your whole house smell of weed, and you'd probably need to use a lot of cannabis.
Luckily, we now live in a time where getting easy to dose and consistent THC syrup is easy and affordable. THC syrup acts as the infused cannabis oil/butter in the recipes we have included below.
Another advantage of using pourable THC syrup is the metered dosage. Within each THC syrup bottle, you know exactly how many milligrams of THC it contains.
When making your own cannabis-infused oil or butter, you have no true way of knowing how much THC is in the edibles. You could end up with an edible that's either way too strong or doesn't do anything.
Don't leave all your hard work and hard-earned money up to chance, and start using THC syrup to make your edibles.
THC Syrup Is Better for Making Edibles
"You can make any type of edible your heart desires. Everything from drinks and desserts, to main courses, side dishes, and more."
The only big downside to edibles is that sometimes they can be too strong if you aren’t careful. Knowing your dose is important because you can gauge how much to eat without going overboard.
Many people have had bad experiences because they didn't know their dose and got too high. Having a bad trip can be a terrifying experience.
After a bad trip, sometimes people swear off edibles for good. Oftentimes, bad trips happen because people were making their own cannabis-infused butter or oil and have no idea the dose.
When you make homemade cannabis oil or butter, it's nearly impossible to make a consistent dose. This means you can either have something way too strong or way too weak.
However, it's much easier to control your dose with products available today. Now you can pop a few tested THC gummies or a few milliliters of accurately measured syrup and figure out your dose.
But what if you still want to make your own edibles? That's where THC syrup comes in.
With THC syrup, you know exactly how much THC is in each bottle. This revolutionizes the possibilities of making your own delicious edibles.
THC syrup also works faster than typical edibles since the syrup can be absorbed through the mucous membrane and other areas in the mouth. That means that most people should feel an effect within 30 minutes.
Our THC syrup is diabetic friendly, vegan, and gluten-free. It's perfect for those who want to make healthier snacks or avoid using any animal products.
You can make any type of edible your heart desires. Everything from drinks and desserts, to main courses, side dishes, and more.
No more gambling when it comes to figuring out whether an edible will be too strong or too weak. You can let your own creativity run free without having to worry about wasting your precious time or cannabis.
A Collection of Delicious Edible Recipe Ideas
"Now, what if you could turn guacamole itself into an edible? Well, that's exactly what you can and should do."
Below is a list of amazing edible recipes and ideas. We decided to skip the usual stuff and included things with a little more flavor.
#1. Rice Krispy Treats
One of the most common and delicious types of cannabis-infused edibles are Rice Krispy treats. These tasty snacks are crunchy and super gooey on the inside and out.
They're also super easy to make at home. You just need Rice Krispies Cereal, marshmallows, regular butter, and THC syrup. Simply create your own cannabis-infused butter combining it with THC syrup and mix very well.
Once the rice Krispies are finished, cut them into measured squares, and share with your favorite people. You can experiment with different flavors of the syrup to get different flavored treats too! We recommend cherry or pineapple for this recipe. Instructions for a recipe found here.
#2. Ganja Guacamole
Who doesn't love the fantastic flavor and texture of creamy guacamole? It's one of the best snacks (and munchies) of all time.
Now, what if you could turn the guacamole itself into an edible? Well, that's exactly what you can and should do.
If you've never made guacamole before, then no worries, it's a cinch. You'll need:
- 3 avocados – peeled, pitted (seed removed), and mashed/chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 Roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- Your dose of THC Syrup
All you need to do is take the raw ingredients after they've been mashed/chopped and mix them together with the THC syrup, lime juice, and salt. Mix it together really well so that the THC syrup spreads around evenly. We recommend mango or unflavored for this recipe.
Grab your favorite pack of tortilla chips and start dipping!
Watching movies and getting elevated are two things that go hand in hand. So for your next movie marathon, we recommend making potcorn.
Yes, you read that right, pot, not popcorn. It's as easy as making regular popcorn, except you need one extra crucial ingredient: THC syrup.
You can make popcorn any way that you like, either through an air popper, or on the stovetop. Bag popcorn could also work, but we don't recommend it unless it is your only option.
Once you've made your popcorn and it's in a bowl, melt about 1/4 cup of butter and add your dose of THC syrup. Mix well and then slowly drizzle the syrup and butter mixture over the popcorn.
Toss some salt in for good measure and then grab a lid. Place the top over the bowl and shake well.
Once you uncover the top, you'll have a beautiful bowl of movie theater style potcorn ready to eat. Head to the couch, turn on the TV, and prepare for a fantastic movie-watching experience. We definitely recommend unflavored syrup for this recipe
#4. High Hummus
If you've never tried hummus, then now would be the perfect opportunity. This amazing dip is creamy, delicious, healthy, and vegan.
Hummus is usually made mostly out of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) and a special sesame oil called tahini. You'll need a blender or a food processor for this recipe and:
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed w/o seeds
- 15 ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup ground cumin
- A few tablespoons of water
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Your dose of THC syrup
First, mix in the THC syrup together with the 1/4 cup of olive oil and set aside. Add the lemon juice and tahini together in the blender and blend for 30 seconds.
Add in everything else (including the oil/THC syrup mix) and blend for 1 minute or until smooth. If it's too chunky or not blending well, add a few tablespoons of water and blend again.
Put in a bowl and serve with fresh veggies, bread, or pita chips. It's so delicious it'll be hard not to eat the entire thing, so make sure to share it with friends. We recommend unflavored syrup for this recipe too.
#5. Refreshing Cannabis Drinks or Teas
The perfect choice for a hot summer day or a relaxed evening is to have your edible in a tasty beverage form. With THC syrup, making cannabis-infused drinks couldn't be easier.
Whether you want to have a refreshing lemonade or a relaxing tea, both are possible. For a lemonade, make a pitcher (about a liter) of lemonade.
Homemade or premixed lemonade is fine to use. Then, add your dose of THC syrup. You can always add more or less depending on your specific dosage or tolerance, as 5 milligrams is exactly one milliliter.
For tea, follow almost the exact same process. Make a pitcher of tea using a few tea bags or loose-leaf, then add your desired amount of THC syrup.
Stop heating the water before it begins to boil, and let the tea cool down before you drink it.
Evidence suggests that cannabis-infused drinks might hit you faster than edibles due to their sublingual onset, so be ready for quick relaxation once you start sipping. The best part about making homemade drinks is that pretty much every syrup flavor is worth experimenting with! Check out our mixology booklet here for tons more great drink recipes.
