here’s probably no simpler recipe than marijuana cookies, which you can use for a fun afternoon or, why not, start on a Saturday or Sunday in the best possible way. Do you dare to prepare them? We tell you how to do it!.-D
30 minutes. That’s how long it can take you to make a nice, simple pot cookie. Yeah, that’s what you’ve read. Then, of course, it will be necessary to put them in the oven or let the dough rest so that they are finished, but, in itself, to prepare the dough, it won’t take you much longer. You got it? I’m sure you do. And, think about it, after that, you’ll have a lot of time to enjoy its taste and effect.
In fact, the recipe for marijuana cookies is a great idea in order to be the best host, without having to spend all day working. Good plan, isn’t it? 😀
That’s why I propose today to make marijuana cookies together to which you can then add all the ingredients you want to give them a different touch, have varied flavors or adapt it to your taste and that of your guests.
Why Hash Cookie Effects Are So Different Than Smoking Weed
There are many good reasons that people enjoy the effects of hash cookies. Like other edibles, they last for hours at a time and have a higher degree of potency compared to smoking or vaping cannabis.
The difference in the edible high compared to the smoking high is two-fold. For one, smoking and vaping put the marijuana directly into your bloodstream. Inhaling vaporized or combusted weed pulls all of the active cannabinoids into your lungs. There, tiny sacs called alveoli absorb a large portion of the chemicals. These chemicals are then transported by your blood all throughout your body, including your brain.
Eating marijuana is a totally different experience. The THC must be indirectly absorbed into your bloodstream through your intestines as part of digestion. Also, putting marijuana’s cannabinoids through your digestive process means that the liver is directly involved.
Your liver normally breaks down ingested substances into things the body can use more readily or evacuate more easily through urine or feces. When THC reaches the liver, the liver subjects it to digestive enzymes that turn it into 11-hydroxy-THC.
11-hydroxy-THC is way more potent than regular THC, which is why edibles produce deeper effects that can stray into psychedelic territory.
CANNABIS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE INFUSION OPTIONS
There is nothing better than biting into that first warm, gooey, perfectly crispy on the outside, doughy on the inside chocolate chip cookie – unless it’s a cannabis cookie!
Now, it is true. You can use any traditional cookie recipe you have to make a cannabis-infused cookie.
Simply swap the fat called for, like butter or oil, for cannabis butter or cannabis oil, and voila – you have a cannabis-infused cookie.
But if you’re looking for the perfect cannabis chocolate chip cookie recipe that has been made specifically with cannabis-infused butter or oil – this is it!
CANNABIS-INFUSED COCONUT OIL OR CANNABUTTER
You can’t make cannabis chocolate chip cookies without the staple recipe important for every cannabis kitchen: cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter.
Used interchangeably, infusing oil or butter with cannabis is an easy way to extract a broad-spectrum of compounds like CBD or THC from the cannabis plant and get them into the food you are eating.
You will want to make sure you have this recipe prepared BEFORE diving into making your own cannabis-infused chocolate chip cookies.
The process involves cannabis decarboxylation and then oil infusion and takes approximately 5-hours.
Once you have your cannabis oil or butter ready, you can go ahead and prepare these chocolate chip cookies.
You can also use them in any other of our delicious cannabis-infused recipes like these mouthwatering cannabis peanut butter cookies and classic cannabis brownies.
2. COOKIES MADE WITH CANNABIS SUGAR
You can also make these cannabis chocolate chip cookies with cannabis-infused sugar if you have some on hand.
It is entirely up to you whether or not you want to use infused oil or infused sugar.
Additionally, you could use BOTH infused oil or butter and infused sugar together for an extra potent batch of medicated cookies.
3. COOKIES MADE WITH FECO OR CONCENTRATES AND EXTRACTS
You can also make cannabis edibles with cannabis concentrates like FECO.
First, check to see if your concentrate needs to be decarbed before consuming.
Some concentrates and extracts like distillate and FECO do not need to be decarbed first, while other concentrates like wax and shatter do need to be decarbed before using in edibles.
If you are unsure, you can checkout our guide to decarbing cannabis concentrates here.
Once the concentrate is ready to go, you will simply mix it in with the 1/2 cup of butter as called for in this recipe.
Then prepare the recipe as described in the instructions below.
BEFORE CONSUMING CANNABIS EDIBLES
Now, if you have never consumed cannabis edibles before, there are some important things I want you to know first.
Friends don’t let friends jump into edibles without a little first-hand knowledge of what to expect!
Because it’s true, cannabis edibles CAN totally mess you up if you’re not prepared.
Before jumping into eating an entire batch of these cookies, I want you to remember:
EDIBLES CAN BE VERY POTENT
If you have never had cannabis edibles before, it is important to note that it will likely affect you differently than inhalation or sublingual application methods.
Edibles become more potent when enzymes in the liver hydroxylate Δ9-THC to form 11-hydroxytetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-THC).
This is a potent psychoactive metabolite that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and causes potential hallucinations.
As with all things cannabis, it is important to start low and go slow.
EDIBLES HAVE A DELAYED ONSET
Edibles have an approximate delayed onset time of 30-minutes to several hours and can have a prolonged duration of effects lasting 6-12 hours, so don’t reach for that second helping so quickly.
When it comes to cannabis edibles, please, start low and go SLOW!
Of course, your experience will be entirely dependent on your own endocannabinoid system.
IT’S DIFFICULT TO KNOW FINAL POTENCY OF HOMEMADE EDIBLES
It can be difficult to know what dose you’re starting with when consuming homemade edibles, so start small.
There’s a reason they say “get ready for the ride” when you consume cannabis edibles.
Edibles can be a wonderful, fun, enjoyable ride when you go in prepared with a little bit of education and know what to expect!
