If you’re someone who prefers digesting your cannabis rather than smoking it, then you might have heard the term “decarboxylation”. It’s the process required to activate raw marijuana flower. Eating raw cannabis flower won’t get you high because it requires heat. If you’d like to learn more about the process, then check out our post from last month for more information.
Once you have your decarbed weed, the next step is choosing what to do with it. We hope you’re good at making decisions because there are countless things you can make with it. Our marijuana dispensary in North Portland not only offers the highest quality cannabis flower, but also the best cannabis concentrates. We’re always happy to discuss ideas or answer questions you might have. But for the moment, we’ll tell you our favorite four things to do with our decarbed marijuana.
Infused Coconut Oil
Weed infused coconut oil is even more diverse in some ways, as it makes it easier to cook with. It’s even a great alternative to cannabutter.
To make it, you’ll want 1 cup ( 7 – 10 grams) of broken up cannabis flower and 1 cup of coconut oil. Combine in a saucepan or whatever you want to use to heat it up. Keep the temperature no higher than 245° F for 2 to 3 hours, making sure to stir occasionally.
Create Your Own Capsules
For medicinal users, cannabis concentrate capsules are a fantastic alternative to smoking or vaping. You can buy empty capsules online, or at most vitamin stores. Just dab your personal ideal dosage and put it in your daily pill container with your other vitamins or supplements. Feel free to add other supplement powders or vitamins for your personal needs.
Eat it raw or add it to literally anything you eat. Your possibilities are endless! Once your cannabis has been decarbed it’s ready to go when you are. Remember you won’t feel the effects as immediately as when you smoke it. Consuming it means you must wait a couple of hours before your body metabolizes it. Remember it’s concentrated though, be careful with dosage.
Make Your Own Massage Oil
Skin is the largest organ in the human body. Despite it’s shield against rain, skin is extremely absorbent. This is why you see things like vitamin E, or aloe, included in lotions or soaps.
All you have to do is add a few drops of your favorite smelling essential oils to some warmed coconut oil, then add your appropriately dosed decarboxylated concentrate. Once it’s sufficiently blended, pour it into a container to let cool and you’re done!
Add it To Any Shake
Whether you’re making a fruit smoothie or a protein shake, adding a bit of decarboxylated cannabis can boost the benefits. Just add it right in, along with the other ingredients of your choosing, and enjoy! Using about a tablespoon of the same infused coconut oil we mentioned before will make any shake extra creamy and smooth.
You can decarb your weed yourself, or if you’d rather not bother then head on over here! Greeley Gallery near Arbor Lodge park is a recreational and medicinal marijuana dispenser.
