Yes, you can cook up your own edibles! Cooking with cannabis is a fun hobby for many clients of your favorite Denver marijuana dispensary. They get all the benefits of the plant combined with the flavors and foods they enjoy, either sweet or savory. There’s no funky smoke to worry about — just relax and enjoy a baked good, condiment, or dish enhanced with cannabis.
THE BODY’S RECEPTORS
How does this work so nicely? Well, when we ingest it, our body’s Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS) perks up and responds in kind. The ECS’s receptors — which are in charge of daily functions like sleep, mood, appetite, memory, pain-processing, and immune & nervous systems — are helped along in many ways with cannabis.
The digestive system takes its time breaking down food, so cannabis is released slowly over the hours. The side effects last longer so less dosage is needed, which makes it cost-effective. This helps the body use its benefits in an effective, easy way.
AILMENTS THAT ARE HELPED
Ailments like nausea, insomnia, anxiety, and inflammation have seen great improvements when a sufferer ingests delicious food made with cannabis.
POPULAR CANNABIS RECIPE TYPES
A simple recipe to start with is cannabutter. If you like sweets, those ubiquitous brownies are always a hit, as are cookies, muffins, and cakes. You can try it in casseroles, poultry, lasagna, pesto, or rolls. There are many cannabis recipes online and even cookbooks being published regularly.
Making these special foods from scratch adds an extra charming appeal, as you know the ingredients and infuse your own TLC. What a great gift, for those who approve, of course.
DOSAGE & STRAINS
You and your edible guests should know and decide just how much is right for each and which strains to use. Feel free to ask the experts at Medicine Man Denver Marijuana Dispensary for recipe and usage suggestions, and try some levels and recipes for yourself to determine your favorites.
Good luck and have fun cooking with cannabis!
