Published on 2/4/21
Cannabis-infused chocolate sauce is hugely versatile. With Valentine's Day around the corner, chocolate syrup can hold its own as a dessert dip for fruits or as a yummy filling for pastries, truffles or cakes to make pretty much anything medicated, even your partner. Even better, this is one of the most simple and straightforward weed recipes out there. Regardless of whether you just started making edibles or if you are a seasoned veteran of canna-baking, this sauce is more than doable. No matter what way you use chocolate syrup, it will please and satisfy your sweet tooth.
When it comes to making edibles, one of the most crucial parts of the entire process is decarboxylation. Since THCA and CBDA cannabinoids are present in raw cannabis, they need to convert into THC and CBD, the psychoactive components, to achieve that high feeling stoners know and love. Heat activates the raw bud converting the cannabinoids into active THC and CBD. Once you decarboxylate the weed, making cannabutter is easier than ever with our recipe. Cannabutter is an exceptionally useful recipe to keep in your arsenal because it is the base for many other edible recipes, making the options truly endless. In addition, it's super easy to swap out your typical cannabis strain with your favorite CBD strain for all of the health benefits without the head high.
Infusing THC butter yourself may seem intimidating, but in reality, it is quick and straightforward. When you are trying to determine how much weed for edibles, you can turn to online THC dosage calculators if you want to skip the math that comes with it.
