Eating weed creates an intense high that lasts far longer than smoking. That means more weed users turned to edibles for their evening chill session.
What’s more comforting than a home-baked edible?
The hard part of making weed edibles is knowing how to balance potency with flavor. Dare one be creative with their canna-butter or stick to well-known recipes?
Go ahead and be adventurous. There are only a couple of rules to follow when it comes to making marijuana edibles.
Rule number one? The best edibles to make are the ones that satisfy your tastes.

Like anything you plan to eat, it’s best to give your weed a good cleaning before using it.
Cleaning weed is an easy process:
- Break up the weed
- Soak the weed in distilled water
- Change the water and soak for 2-3 days
- Drain water
- Put the weed in a tea ball
- Let weed sit in boiling water for 5 minutes
- Dunk weed in cold water for 1 minute
After the weed is cleaned, it has to be dried and decarbed. This activates the psychoactive parts of the plant.
Decarb your weed in a glass pan covered in foil. Set the oven for 240. It should take an hour for the weed to dry out.
Choosing the Right Equipment
To make life easier, there are new all-in-one systems available to make canna-butter. No more accidentally burning the butter or oil. Just let products like the Infuzium 420 do the hard work.
These systems come with easier methods to strain the oil from the weed. They make it a breeze to create your own medicated treats.
