How to Make Infused Fall Treats

How to Make Infused Fall Treats

Layne Alfred |

The leaves are turning orange, but for those of us that love the green, fall is the perfect time to experiment with baking with cannabis. If you want to bring the perfect mind-bending yet delicious treats to your autumnal get-togethers this year, cannabis-infused muffins, pies or even candy apples are the way to go.

Light some candles, get cozy, grab your favorite recipe and bud, and keeping reading to learn how to make tasty cannabis-infused fall treats!

 

How to Make Infused Fall Snacks

You can make any of your favorite fall treats psychedelic by replacing the normal butter in the original recipe with THC-infused butter or oil. Many dispensaries sell THC oils and tinctures that can be added to food and drink, but if you want to make your own cannabis-infused butter, you’ll have to go through the decarboxylation process, or “decarb” your weed.

 

How to Decarb Cannabis

In the simplest terms, THC from raw flower needs to be activated with heat to be effective. When we smoke or vape, decarboxylation happens when we run the battery or light the bud on fire. But when consuming cannabis, that activation doesn’t happen unless we decarb it beforehand. That’s why adding straight up ground bud to muffins won’t provide any psychedelic effects.

 

Decarbing fresh, ground cannabis requires cooking it. Don’t try to do this in the microwave as you won’t be able to accurately control the temperature, and you could risk overheating it, which will also make it ineffective. Here are Leafly’s simple instructions to effectively decarb your flower.

 

  1. Set the oven temperature to 220ºF, with the oven rack in the middle position. Ovens are hotter at the top and cooler at the bottom, so heating in the middle will ensure ideal decarboxylation temperature.
  1. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and lightly break up or grind the cannabis onto it, but not too fine, to avoid burning.
  1. Heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring at least once.
  1. Let cool for 30 minutes at room temperature. The cannabis should look lightly toasted and golden brown.
  1. When cool enough to handle, add the decarboxylated cannabis to butter, oil, or another base for an infusion, or carefully put it in a storage container for future use.

 

How to Dose Cannabis-Infused Butter  

Now that you have your cannabutter, you may be wondering how much to actually add to your recipe. The best part about using cannabis-infused butter is that you can add the exact same amount as the original recipe calls for.

 

The dosing comes in when you add the decarbed cannabis to your butter or oil. To calculate how much THC the butter will contain, take the number of grams of weed you have, and the percentage of THC that strain contains. Multiply these numbers and then multiply by 1,000. For easy math, if you have 10 grams of cannabis that has 10% THC (even though most have more), you’ll have 1,000 mg of THC in your butter (10 x 0.10 x 1,000).

 

Next, divide the number of individual treats you’ll have in your batch by the overall mg of THC. If you’re making 30 mini apple crisps, you’ll have about 33 grams of THC in each. So, once you’ve done the math, you can decide how much cannabis you actually have to decarb to make your dessert as strong or weak as you want.

 

Now you’re ready to whip up your favorite fall treat! If you don’t have one in mind already, check out our favorites below.
