Cooking with THC oil can be an incredibly fun and rewarding activity. You’ll learn how to do new things in the kitchen and wind up with delicious, homemade edibles. What could be better?
Not everyone is born with innate baking abilities. Finding the right recipes is the key. Starting with premade cannabis oil can also help. Making THC-infused oil at home can be challenging, but baking with it is no harder than baking everyday foods. There’s no need to start with absurdly complicated recipes. There are plenty of potent THC edibles that are also easy to make.
Whether you’re an expert baker or a novice in the kitchen, these baked goods will hit the spot.
1. Not Your Grandma’s Pot Brownies
Pot brownies are about as classic as you can get when it comes to canna-baked goods. Unlike the weed enthusiasts of yesteryear, you have better options than just tossing in some trim. You can use cannabis oil to make far more potent brownies.
Choose your favorite recipe or buy a box of pre-mixed brownies from the store. It doesn’t matter which route you go. What gives these brownies their power is the use of highly potent THC-infused oil.
Since you’ll be baking an entire batch of brownies, it’s vital to get the ratios right. Before getting started, check to see how many servings the recipe makes. Replace some or all of the regular oil or butter in the recipe with cannabis-infused products.
Not sure how to measure your doses? It’s pretty easy to convert from c to mg. One cup of oil is equal to 350 mg. From there, you should have no problem figuring out how much oil to use.
2. THC-Infused Apple Pie
Apple pie is an American dessert staple, but you can eat a slice of THC-infused apple pie at any time of day. There’s no need to finish your dinner first. If you’re not into apple picking, you can buy premade filling. The THC is in the crust.
To get the perfect pie crust, mix up:
- 3¼ cup flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- ¼ cup vegetable shortening
- 1 cup THC-infused butter
- 5 Tbsp ice water
There are three keys to getting a perfect crust. First, you have to sift all the dry ingredients. Second, you should make sure all the wet ingredients are cold. Third, you should mix your dough by hand to avoid over-mixing. Make sure you allow the crust to chill before rolling it out, then bake the pie for one hour at 375 o F.
