Making savory cannabis edibles at home

I love edibles, but I hate sweets.

This was a bummer for a long time, because most edibles are incredibly sweet.

There are gummies, chocolates, cookies, brownies, and so many more yummy treats that are all too sweet for my liking. During the COVID pandemic, when I couldn’t get my hands on any edibles anyway, I decided to try some experiments in the kitchen. I could make my own edibles, using savory foods instead of sweets, and have weed as a part of my meals! I had to start with the basics and learn how to make cannabis oil from the weed I had on-hand. You see, most people think cooking with cannabis means grinding up some pot and stirring it into the batter, but this is not the best way to make potent edibles. Instead the cannabis needs to release all its power and glory into an oil, which is then used to cook other ingredients. Oil infused with cannabis transfers the flavor and the THC into the other foods, saturing the entire dish with delightful marijuana taste and potency. I made a creamy seafood alfredo sauce, enriched with OG Kush and Purple Haze in equal measure, and poured it over fettuccine noodles. It tasted so good, and I was so high and full afterward I took a three hour nap. The only problem with cannabis edibles is that one bite too much will make me sleepy for the rest of the day. This is why I usually prefer to smoke my cannabis, so that I can regulate my intake better.
