The delicious, creamy taste of peanut butter meets dark chocolate and a hint of cannabis for a healthier version of an edible you’ll want to snack on all summer long.  

Investing in edibles 

Edibles have a different high than smoking; it lasts longer and it’s a more full-body experience. For the time-conscious stoner, smoking is the fastest route to relief. But for the stoner who wants a wider range of consumption options, who loves being in the kitchen, or has the creative itch to try new things, edibles are a great option.

But edibles are also an important consumption option for medical patients and people who can’t smoke. With edibles, you don’t need to worry about leaving ground weed around or smelling like smoke. Unless someone sees or smells you infusing your edibles, they’ll never even know! 

How to have a good time with edibles

  • Start low and go slow. Edibles can take 60 – 90 minutes to kick in, and sometimes over three hours to reach peak effects. The timeline means it’s incredibly important to dose your edibles correctly and then be patient. If you didn’t take enough for the experience that you want, you can increase your dose next time. 
  • Always label your edibles! Hiding cannabis is edible’s superpower, but it can also be a downfall if someone who doesn’t like weed eats them. Clear labeling helps avoid accidents and unintentional overconsumption.
  • Store your edibles away from the reach of kids and pets. They also won’t be able to tell there’s THC in these peanut butter bites, which can lead to a bad time. Keep in a place where only adults can access them. 

Making cannabis oil

Having cannabis oil on hand is the best way to quickly make edibles whenever you feel like it. Cannaoil is straightforward to make and stores well in the fridge so you can make it once and keep coming back to it over and over.

If you don’t want to infuse your own edibles, you can also invest in a machine to do it for you.

Don’t skip decarboxylation 

Decarboxylation is the not-so-secret ingredient to making potent, delicious edibles that deliver the experience you want. 

Decarboxylation is the process of turning acidic cannabinoids like THCA and CBDA into the neutral cannabinoids of THC and CBD you know and love. THCA isn’t intoxicating, so without decarboxylation, your edibles won’t actually get you high. Invest the time into making your cannabis oil the right way- you (and anyone you share with) will be glad you did.

Chef Jordan’s tip

Using aroma-free coconut oil instead of butter adds an incredible mouth feel in vegan desserts without adding flavor. You can substitute cannabis butter or isolates in place of the cannabis oil in this recipe (but if you use butter the recipe will no longer be vegan.)
