Cooking With Mary Jane, Marijuana

Don't forget to share!

In the United States marijuana is becoming much more widely excepted and used for a myriad of reasons.

Unfortunately, in the state I live in it is not available. I have no first-hand experience preparing these recipes. However, my friends in Colorado had made these many times and I have sampled them when visiting Aspen.

First, identify the percentage of THC in the strain you’re cooking with. Catalano says on average, most strains have about 10 percent THC.  Strains that have 15-20 percent THC are above average, and those with 21 percent THC or higher are exceptionally strong. If you can’t find online plant breeding information or cannabinoid lab tests for the strain, estimate at 10 percent THC.

Every 1 gram of cannabis bud has 1,000mg of dry weight. If a strain has about 10% THC, ten percent of 1,000mg would be 100mg. So for cooking or baking at home, it is safe to assume that a gram of cannabis contains at least 100mg THC.

Take the amount of ground marijuana, convert it to milligrams and divide it by the recipe yield to determine a per-serving dose of THC. A starting dosage for beginners is 5 milligrams per serving (the Colorado-mandated serving size for marijuana-infused edibles is 10mg THC). Three grams of ground marijuana equals 300mg THC. 300mg divided by the recipe yield, (a classic cookie recipe makes 60 cookies) equals 5mg per cookie.  If you want to be even more cautious with your at-home cannabutter cooking, 1.5 grams (150mg) marijuana divided into a 60-cookie recipe will yield 2.5mg a serving.

Weed Brownies:

How to make the perfect Pot Brownie When I first tried to make pot brownies, I ground up an ounce of weed and put it in my brownie mix. Two hours and $400 later, I found out that it doesn’t really work that way. Then I tried cooking the marijuana in butter. I ended up burning the butter, ruining another half ounce of cannabis and making really disgusting brownies. Although a lot of people extract THC in butter, I find that vegetable oil is the easiest way to get it done. Learning how to cook cannabis in oil is only the beginning. There are a few things we need to go over if you want to have a good experience with edibles. – Dosage – Cooking the Oil – Making the Pot Brownies – Consuming Step by Step Instructions on How to Make Weed Brownies Step

Use cannabis-infused butter in your favorite baked goods.

If you want to get all the benefits of medical marijuana butter and avoid the drawbacks of smoking pot, read carefully.  Get the best experience by learning how to make strong cannabutter. You will find that cooking cannabis butter is incredibly easy and the best way to use medical hemp.

  • 6 grams marijuana
  • 1 lb. unsalted butter
  1. Heat the oven to 250°F|120°C. Spread marijuana out into an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake the marijuana, taking care not to let the marijuana go over 250°F|120°C and burn (if this happens, you can lose potency). Bake for about 35-40 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool before grinding into a coarse powder. This decarboxylated weed will keep in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the decarboxylated weed and cook, taking care not to let the temperature go over 200°F|93°C, for about 45 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, undisturbed, for 10 minutes, before straining through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Press carefully with a spoon to extract as much oil as possible.
  3. The cannabutter will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 8 weeks.

The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole, unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.

However, scientific study of the chemicals in marijuana, called cannabinoids, has led to two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals in pill form.

Two FDA-approved drugs, dronabinol, and nabilone, contain THC. They treat nausea caused by chemotherapy and increase appetite in patients with extreme weight loss caused by AIDS. Continued research might lead to more medications.

The United Kingdom, Canada, and several European countries have approved nabiximols (Sativex), a mouth spray containing THC and CBD. It treats muscle control problems caused by MS, but it isn’t FDA-approved.

Continued research may lead to more medications.

Because the marijuana plant contains chemicals that may help treat a range of illnesses and symptoms, many people argue that it should be legal for medical purposes. In fact, a growing number of states have legalized marijuana for medical use.

Scientists are also conducting preclinical and clinical trials with marijuana and its extracts to treat symptoms of illness and other conditions, such as:

  • diseases that affect the immune system, including:
  • multiple sclerosis (MS), which causes a gradual loss of muscle control
  • inflammation
  • pain
  • seizures
  • substance use disorders
  • mental disorders

  • Cannabinoids are chemicals related to delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana’s main mind-altering ingredient.
  • Currently, the two main cannabinoids from the marijuana plant that is of interest for medical treatment are THC and cannabidiol (CBD).
  • The body also produces its own cannabinoid chemicals.
