Cannabis Medicated Edibles for the Time Challenged and the Lazy

QUICK AND EASY EDIBLES

Quick and easy edibles for the Time Challenged or Lazy can be made effortlessly with  decarbed cannabis oil.  Transform any favorite prepared dinner item from the grocery market freezer section, ready made breakfast treat, or desert from a pastry tube into either medication, a party, or both with just a few drops of oil.

Add cannabis oil to pastry frosting and you have have a great edible!

The cannabis oil I’m referring to is from a highly concentrated oil made from extraction and is significantly more potent than traditional methods of butter and oil infusion.  Infusion is when cannabis is heated in an butter or a carrier oil, like olive oil or coconut oil, for an extended period of time.  As the heated material simmers, the goodness of the cannabis becomes infused into the butter or oil.  Infusion is easily performed on the stove top, in a slow-cooker, or using an infusion device.  Infusion works, but it is not efficient and it leaves you with a large amount of butter or oil that’s much less potent than pure cannabis oil (CO) made by extraction.  The difference is that instead of trying to stuff a large amount of low potency infused butter into recipe you can use just a small amount of very potent CO extract and stretch it into whatever ingredient you wish.  Working with CO extract gives you ultimate control of how you can use cannabis to medicate and simply mix it directly into your chosen medium of pre-prepared gluttony.

PREPARE CANNABIS AND EXTRACT CANNABIS OIL (CO)

I use the Source Turbo by ExtractCraft (www.extractcraft.com) to do small batch extractions for cooking.  I like this method very much because it’s a food grade ethanol extraction process and the machine is very safe and easy to use.  I can make about 4g of the most potent CO in a couple hours and that’s more than enough for me for a while.  The Source Turbo performs low temp extractions so, to activate the THCA into the psychoactive form of THC, decarboxylation (decarb) must be performed either on the cannabis plant material prior to extraction, in the oven at 250F for 30min, or after the extraction by heating the CO to 250F until small bubbles stop forming.

Perform a normal extraction with the Source and stop the process then the concentrate is in a viscous oil state and remover the CO from the machine.  This CO will be so potent per volume that you will need to stretch it into a carrier to make dosing manageable.  You can mix the CO into butter, coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, or whatever will work best and suit the lazy-butt food stuffs you’ll be chowin’ on.  How much carrier should you mix with the CO?  That depends on how you would like to handle your dosing.  If you want it super strong and are not concerned with control of how much medicine you are getting you can use the CO as is.  If you’d like to manage the dosing closer or micro-dose you can stretch it into more carrier oil and experiment with what the right balance is for you.

MIX IT UP AND GOBBLE

Finally, lets get to making some lazy grub.  All you have to do is mix the cannabis oil concentrate into cinnamon roll icing from a tube, add it to any canned deliciousness, or incorporate it into a frozen dinner entree.  You can even combine the CO and rice wine vinegar with Japanese sticky rice, put a sausage on it, and wrap with some seaweed.  No need to wait, gobble-gobble and get your creative on!

  1. Ive been studying RSO and now your site, am a little confused by how long to soak the product in Ever Clear for both rinses one and two, Ive read a few minutes to a couple of days, Can you tell me what the outcome difference is soaked longer vs shorter.
    Thank you!

    1. Did you happen to have a chance to read my other blog posts? Particularly the RSO/FECO one?

    2. you want to chop it up to roughly popcorn size, then freeze both. first rinse soak for 3 mins, swirling the plant matter (dont shake too much) every minute. the second wash i do for 10, then a third at 15. third is pretty trash but i usually decarb it and bake with it.

      1. You might want to take a look at some of my other posts on QWET, we are doing washes up to 24-hours with dry ice. I’ve found a 3-min is generally too short for getting a decent yield.

  2. so this might be my problem, in the article you say oil extractions like mct, olive oil are not as strong as concentrates. so I have been infusing with that nova gadget and it is not getting me liffed, started with 10mg then 20mg 30mg 50mg and just tried 75mg nothing, also im testing this stuff with my t-check-2 so who knows. so would it best to just use my extracts instead of messing with these kind of infusions and should I maybe start out with a lower dose again? thanks

    1. It simply depends on your preference. Problem with straight infusion is you never know what’s in it and no ability to avoid a large amount of carrier or potency. Infusion can be very useful, especially on a budget but there are more efficient cleaner ways to do things…….extractions. I might suggest doing a bit more reading of some of my other posts and things might become a little more clear. Please forgive me for being very direct but infusing with the Ardent is a joke. The thing is little heated cylinder originally used for decarbing then the realized they could change the marketing a little and convince newbies that it’s a great new infusion machine, it’s kind of comical. It’s like calling my $15 Target toaster oven a Viking commercial Oven

      1. understood, would it still be ok for decarbing. my wife will NOT let me ever decarb in the oven again, I did see your mason jar trick I might give that a try. thanks ps what are your thoughts on the t-check-2 and be honest.

      2. The Ardent works well for decarbing if you need something easy and convenient. I would really only use it for decarbing dry material first. The T-check is less accurate than just guessing from everything I’ve seen. Guessing is cheaper. It’s another gadget marketed well, targeting people who don’t really know any better.
