How to Cook With Cannabis

There are a few different ways you can cook with cannabis, depending on the recipe or edible you’re looking to create. Let’s explore some options for infused ingredients when cooking with cannabis.

Cannabis Oils & Butters

One of the most popular techniques for cooking cannabis edibles involves infusing cannabis into cooking oils or butter. This allows it to be a versatile ingredient that can be used in most baking or cooking recipes.

  • Decarboxylating cannabis activates all the potent cannabinoids, such as THC, in the flower, without burning off these compounds. This exposure to heat and air activates the cannabis so when consumed, you’ll still experience the psychoactive effects of THC.
  • Next, heat the oil or melt the butter and slowly mix and infuse the decarboxylated cannabis. Allow for about 1-3 hours for your infusion to cool and settle before mixing in with other ingredients.

RSO and Cannabis Syringes

Cannabis oils often come in syringes for easy dosing and application. Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is a potent extract that provides a concentrated dose of cannabinoids. With this form of cannabis product, you can skip the DIY cannabis decarboxylation for butter and oil, and simply mix in the RSO into your butter, oil, or other ingredients.

  • At our Lowell dispensary, you’ll find Nature’s Heritage RSO Syringe. This Rick Simpson Oil product is heavily potent, just a dab or two into your baking mix or cooking oil and you’ll enhance full spectrum flavor in any dish!

Chocolate Cannabis Bars

Get creative in the kitchen with decadent cannabis-infused chocolate bars! These delectable treats elevate any dessert or sweet and come in various dark, milk, or white chocolate flavors. Experiment with melted cannabis-infused chocolate drizzled as a topping, or try fruits and cookies dipped in chocolate.

  • Stop by our dispensary in Haverhill for Coast Cannabis Co.’s Maple Walnut Cannabis Chocolate. This bar is infused with 10mg of THC per square. Made with organic milk chocolate with chopped walnuts and pure maple sugar crystals, this infused chocolate makes the ultimate dessert ingredient!
