Cooking with Cannabis Animation
We created our new Introduction to Cooking w/ Cannabis animated video to help you learn the basics of cannabis cooking. Watch as we take you on a journey through learning about trichomes, the anatomy of the plant, decarboxylation, duration of effects, and what you can infuse with cannabis. Cannabis cooking is difficult to understand, our cooking with cannabis animation helps you not be so intimidated by this new science.
Once you become comfortable with cannabis cooking, you can view our “Cooking with Cannabis 101” video series.
Edibles get a bad rap. People used to just through a bunch of weed in butter and use that butter in the brownie. Then you’d wake up 1 day later with a day lost and even more hungry lol. The amount of THC was not known when creating the cannabis butter.
What You’ll Learn
This series will help you learn the THC conversion so the above situation won’t happen to you, or, you’ll want it to happen that way but at least you’ll know the amount of THC that was in your edible.
When eating/ingesting cannabinoids the effects on the body are different from smoking or vaporizing. When smoking or vaporizing cannabis, the THC is processed almost immediately through your lungs and then into your bloodstream. The effects of the cannabinoids are then felt almost instantaneously.
When you eat or ingest your cannabinoids they are absorbed in your stomach, processed through the liver, then into your bloodstream. Which is why it takes longer for the effects of the cannabinoids to settle in and also why the effects last longer.
The durations of effects you’ll feel when eating/ingesting your cannabinoids will last in your system for approx. 4-6 hours. Where as when smoking/vaporizing the effects can be felt for only approx. 1-2.5 hours.
It is common practise, especially for beginners, to try your desired dosage and wait for 1-2 hours before ingesting more.
