Learn the basics of cooking with weed

The world of cannabis goes far beyond smoking a dried herb. Cannabis shops and medical marijuana dispensaries wherever marijuana is legal around the world use cannabis in butters, oils, lecithins, sodas, tinctures, etc. If you are a cannabis enthusiast, you too can partake in all the edible fun without leaving the comfort of your home.

Cooking with marijuana is an easy, albeit time consuming endeavor. There’s more to cannabis cooking than just throwing in some flowers and make a pan of brownies. Just like there’s more to cooking BBQ chicken than just throwing it in the oven. You need to prep, dress, and then bake the chicken. Cannabis too needs a little TLC. Just like the chicken won’t taste the same without prep, your cannabis will be rendered useless without going through a process called decarboxylation.

The marijuana decarboxylation process may sound like a complex concept, but it’s not. Decarboxylation is not only easy, but is essential. Without going through the process, your bud will have no psychoactive element and will also ruin the taste of what you cooking. Who wants to get baked with bad baked goods? Didn’t think so. Read on to learn more about this process, and you will be a culinary marijuana savant in no time.
