A delicious way to enjoy the effects of weed.
Cannabis has been used in cooking for a long time, and chocolate with marijuana is one of the most popular recipes.
This delicious treat is not only tasty, but it’s also a convenient and discreet way to consume cannabis. If you’re interested in making your own cannabis chocolate, read on to find out how.
If you want to skip to the end, here’s a quick summary: to make cannabis chocolate, in a nutshell, all you need to do is melt chocolate, melt cannabutter, combine them, and then freeze the mixture.
If you’re more in the mood for DIY, here are two easy ways to do cannabis chocolate, but first let’s look at the benefits of combining the two.
Cannabis chocolate is not only a guilty pleasure, it is also a treat that awakens the senses, and may even offer a number of health benefits.
Beyond its exquisite taste and texture, this magical combination of cacao and cannabis has gained popularity in culinary and wellness circles. Some of its main benefits are:
Cannabis has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes, and by combining it with chocolate, you can enjoy its therapeutic properties in a delicious way.
It is believed that cannabis can relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and alleviate pain, which makes cannabis chocolate an attractive option for those seeking a natural approach to wellness.
When you consume cannabis-infused chocolate, you have greater control over the dose you ingest.
This is especially helpful for people who want to experience the effects of cannabis gradually and precisely. You can adjust the amount of cannabis you use in the recipe to suit your personal needs.
Unlike other methods of cannabis consumption, such as smoking or vaporizing, the effect of cannabis ingested in chocolate form tends to last longer.
Cannabis chocolate is a discreet way to consume cannabis, as it does not emit the characteristic odor associated with smoking.
Variety of Flavors
Cannabis chocolate lends itself to a wide variety of flavors and customization options.
You can experiment with different types of chocolate, from dark to white, and add ingredients such as nuts, dried fruits, or flavor extracts to create your perfect version.
Mood Enhancing Potential
Chocolate itself is known to have mood-enhancing properties due to the release of endorphins it triggers.
When combined with cannabis, this synergy can create a pleasurable experience that can elevate your mood.
1/4 cup cannabutter
4 cups of your favorite chocolate
Now let’s get to work.
Step 1: The first step is to have cannabutter ready. You can make it yourself or buy it at your trusted dispensary. Once you have the cannabutter, you have to melt it over low heat in a pot for a few minutes.
Step 2: Now, it’s time to melt the chocolate. The best way to melt the chocolate without burning it is to create a double boiler.
To do this, put about an inch of water in a saucepan, then insert a bowl into the saucepan with boiling water so that the steam heats the bottom of the bowl. Put the chocolate in this bowl so that the heat from the boiling water in the saucepan melts the chocolate in the bowl. Let the chocolate melt completely.
Step 3: Now, all you have to do is combine the melted chocolate with your cannabutter. You’ll want to combine about 1/4 cup of cannabutter for every 4 cups of chocolate. Mix them together well.
Step 4: Pour the chocolate and cannabutter mixture into a chocolate mold. If you don’t have a chocolate mold, use an ice cube tray. Put it in the fridge and let the mixture harden. Once hardened, you can eat it!
Another way to make cannabis chocolate and enjoy all its effects is to make it from scratch. This is another recipe a little more homemade.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup finely ground cannabis (the amount of cannabis will depend on your personal tolerance and the potency of the strain chosen).
Step By Step
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 110°C and spread the finely ground cannabis on a baking sheet. Place the tray in the oven and leave it there for about 20 minutes for the cannabis to toast slightly. This step is important to activate the cannabinoids in the herb and enhance its effects. Pst: this step is called decarboxylating the weed.
Step 2: While the herb is toasting, mix the coconut oil, cocoa powder, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
Step 3: Once the herb is toasted, remove it from the oven and stir it into the chocolate mixture. Continue to heat the mixture over medium-low heat, constantly stirring for about 20 minutes.
Step 4: After this time, remove the mixture from the heat and strain it through a fine mesh strainer. This will allow you to remove the remains of the grass and obtain smooth and silky chocolate.
Step 5: Pour the chocolate mixture into chocolate molds or onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Refrigerate the mixture for at least one hour until it solidifies. Here, you can add toppings of your choice; be creative!
Step 6: Once the chocolate is ready, unmold or cut it into individual portions and enjoy!
Whether you’re looking to enhance the effects of a certain cannabinoid, mask the taste of cannabis, or give yourself a tasty treat, you might want to consider mixing cannabis and chocolate.
There are many ways to do this. One of the most traditional methods is chocolate edibles like the ones we just showed you. But if you are lucky enough to live in an area where cannabis is legal to sell, you may be able to get your hands on commercial strains like brownies, chocolate bars, truffles, and many other forms of cannabis-infused chocolate.
The combination of these two wonderful substances not only delights your taste buds but also opens up a world of possibilities for improving your quality of life and enjoying the benefits of cannabis. Apparently, cannabis and chocolate were made to be together.
