Hey fellow FCers. I use cannabis for medical purposes and have been interested in preparing my own edibles for more effective longer lasting pain management. I have read fairly extensively on cooking with cannabis including the book: "the art and science of cooking with cannabis" which talks about not needing to decarb because it happens while baking whatever it is you're baking. Assuming you leave all the active ingredients in. I'll have to give it another read but I'm pretty certain that was what they suggested. This is an old book though so I understand processes change and evolve. My experience is infusion in cooking oils like canola. I would grind to a pulp all my material in a coffee grinder, mix it in the oil and use a candy thermometer to monitor temperature to make sure I don't go over certain temps. I would bring it to a low simmer for about 20-30 mins then let it cool. Then throw it in a batch of store bough brownie mix and bake. The fine grind of the cannabis makes it so you don't even notice it in the brownies and I find this helped to get more actives converted during the cooking process. What do you guys do differently? I have had moderate success with my edibles of the past but couldn't help but feel they could of been even better. I think this was due to the lack of decarboxylation. I want to try and decarb properly this time and see what my results will be. What do you guys do to prepare your cannabis for cooking? I am mostly interested in cannabis cooking oil infusion and canna butter.
