Introduction: Medical Marijuana: Edibles
This is a brief instructable to demonstrate a process to cook using medicinal marijuana. There are now more types of medicinal edibles than ever before in the dispensaries. Well, here is an old school home cooked version of a tried and proven classic. As far as I can tell the variations on this are only limited by imagination and local character. So, here is some Sonora Arizona spoon-fulls.
HOW IT WORKS
I've been led to understand the fallowing: The reason this works is that the weed must reach about 300 degrees f to activate. You can achieve this by vaporizing, smoking, or cooking so that the fumes are absorbed into the food. I think brownies don't use water, only oil for some recipes so this would work best because oil boils at a higher temp than water, which your would have to cook off all the water before the THC is activated and butter can get pretty hot too so this would work.
No kidding? Thanks pyrogreasemonkey https://www.instructables.com/answers/How-do-you-make-special-browinesweed-browines-/ .........and so I got my first best answer.
Step 1: Medicanal Material
This is a seeded and stemmed mix of 2 of the Different Neufeltian strains out of Tucson, A cloned local Sonoran strain cultivated outdoors year round since the Flowing Wells-CDO sky pilots of 72 or or 73,.......gosh who knows. What is known was a son was caught by his Pops (a member of the royal Neptune society) and was scolded for growing and vaporizing reefer fumes. The dumb kid could hardly grow weeds in the garden, let alone something productive. Using post whole diggers his father dug holes that spit stalks 16 feet tall. He then processed the THC and orally consumed it in a variety of ways. He even swore it was better medicinally than opium, and believe me he knew!
In dispensaries this is similar to commercial Reggie. Its the common non-pot snobby variety of medicine. Well, except for one thing. This $10 4 finger lid bag has become a powerfully potent strain of medicine. Don't forget, its taken orally giving a more calmed body rather than the mind.
Step 2: Ingredients
2 pounds of butter.
68 grams or almost 2 1/2 ounces.
Cookie mix (for future use)
Step 3: Melt & Mix
On the lowest temperature possible, melt your butter and mix in your medicinal material.
Step 4: Simmer & Mash
I simmer the mix for a good 20 minutes. Then, using a nice and flat bottomed object, I mash the mix together another 20 minutes.
Step 5: Strainer
My strainer is put together from a kitchen screen strainer, a large measuring bowl, and a cloth of thin kitchen linen. I put the linen centered over the measuring bowl and place the screen strainer in the center. I also place these items on a tray for easier cleaning.
Step 6: Actual Straining
Simply pour your medicinal mixture into the strainer. I then use my flat object again to press out as much butter as possible.
Step 7: Packaging
I pour my warm butter into a butter dish an let cool before refrigeration. . The leftover foliage, I simply place in a Tupperware dish.
Step 8: Now What?
So, its cooled and your aching to cook something. I've done 2 of the simplest dishes possible, cookies and a pot of rice. Don't think you are limited to just this. Anything recipe that calls for butter or you can toss some of this foliage in AND raise to a temperature of around 300 degrees, has been a winning combination for me. My two favorites are cheese enchiladas with a cup of foliage cooked in the red sauce and I make a rocking foliage meatball served with a green buttered garlic bread. The possibilities are truly endless.
Step 9: Cookies
Its just this easy. Read your cookie mix and fallow as directed........ EXCEPT, use your green butter in place of plain butter. That's it. Just be sure to try one at a time and space them a few hours apart. The medicinal properties tend to creep up on you!
Step 10: Rice
2 cups of water, 1 cup of rice, spoonful of chicken base, and 1/2 a cup of foliage. Cook just like normal and it has a lovely green hue to it.
