Let us begin with some basic rules to follow with cooking with cannabis.

When cooking with cannabis use low temperatures and cook over a long period of time, this will help keep the THC intact. The breakdown of THC happens at around 390 degrees Fahrenheit, there will always be a gradual breakdown of THC that starts before that but once you get to 390 or above you risk losing THC content which can make the effects of your infused dish much less effective. Do not use paper towels or coffee filters to strain the cannabis oil, they are not strong enough and have a high chance of contaminating you cannabis-infused oil. Lastly, do not use a microwave oven to cook or heat marijuana or cannabis-infused foods. Microwaves can leave something burnt on the outside but still uncooked on the inside and is somewhat unpredictable. Always use ovens and stovetops when cooking cannabis-infused foods. Now here are five healthy cannabis-infused edibles that are easy to make once you have created your Cannabis butter, Cannabis oil, and Cannabis coconut oil!
