Medical Marijuana: Edibles




Introduction: Medical Marijuana: Edibles

About: My full time job as an Organ Grinder keeps me pretty busy but that's just small change. My part time work, as a Mohel, keeps me up to date on my student loans from UCLSD.

  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.

  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  .........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.

    This would be a good article for me to direct some of my customers to. A lot of them do ask for tips on how best to make use of their medical marijuana and cannabis supply and good instructions would definitely help them get the most out of their herb.

    I lived in Boulder, Colorado and used to own a company called Red Eye Jack's until the laws changed. The simmer method is good, but the best process for extracting medical grade butter is with a crock pot that has a "Keep Warm" setting. this setting is low enough for butter to melt and activate the THC. This process can be done by simmering in same method above, overnight to 48 hours (if water is added to keep a buffer between the oil burning to a crisp and getting to gooey.) This method of slower extraction adds the benefit of absorption to the fat molecules to that of THC, giving a more refined high and maximum herbal infusion.

    somewhat esoteric and legend heavy, but the enthusiasm saves it. How does it happen that the left over foliage has enough thc to be potent when used by itself? I mean, you can use a tea bag twice, but the second time is going to be weak if the first was strong. Thanks for the instrucable.

    You are correct. It's not as strong but it's there and no since in waste.
