Why eating weed instead of smoking it?
The answer is really simple and can be resumed in just one word:
THC is lyposoluble
But what does it means?
I dont want to talk in technical languaje, so i just will tell you that the only thing that makes you high when you consume weed (THC) mix homogenously with oil.
Therefore, you can extract almost all the THC from the weed by a process that i will describe later.
Other big diference between ingesting weed and smoking it is that your lungs are closer to the blood (of course, this is not correct at all, but the idea behind it is ok) than your stomach.
I'm telling that, when you eat something everything goes trough your liver before entering your blood. When you smoke everything goes from the lungs to the blood directly. Your lungs filter a little bit, but you end up smoking more than just THC with all the withdrawls to smoking, like irritation, lowering your breath capacity, you just get the whole pack.
Therefore eating it is usually healthier.
Some comparisons shows that while smoking takes effect after 30-90 seconds, when you eat it the effect appears from 20 to 90 minutes after.
The duration of smoked weed is about 2-4 hours, while eaten is more like 4-8.
The dosis for this numbers are something like 2 mg for smoking and 2.5 mg for eating.
Of course, all of the above numbers depends on the weed quality.
Ok, lets get into it now.
This is the first process of all. Is a really good one, because you could make a good amount last for a really long time. I use to make like 400 gr of butter when I travel, and I use it to cook, with bread in the morning, etc.
You could use just leaves, we are going to extract almost all of the thc from it, so it will still be strong.
I often mix 1 part of leaves with 1 part of female flower.
We will need
1 big pot
1 small pot
1 wooden spoon
5 gr. of weed
250 gr. of butter
In the big pot with boiling water put the small pot dry with the butter inside.
Let it melt with a slow fire. If you use a cheap butter is a good thing to clean it.
For that we will use the wooden spoon. On the top of the melted butter you will see a layer of thin opaque fat. Take it away and throw it. We will just keep the oil.
Now we will add the weed and let it be there for about half an hour, stirring from time to time. Be carefull of the boiling water below, remember to lower the flame, and if is it to hot grab the big pot some inches above the flame.
After that half hour we will turn it off and take the small pot out of the big one.
Let it cold for about 5 minutes. With the strainer take out the leaves and put it in some square mold.
Let it cold again and put it on the fridge.
Tomorrow you could have a great breakfast. with your 200 gr of weed butter.
This recipe is from a friend of mine. Never heard before until he told me about it. It is great, because you can cook things like pancakes, things i used to believe couldn't be done.
We will need:
1 stone mortar
We will use just leaves, this is a perfect way of using these subrated litle green things.
If you dont know what a mortar is...
If you dont have one you could use two big stones. Clean them carefully.
For this you need the leaves as dry as they can get. Here we crop in april-may, i do this flour like in june-july.
For all of this time i had the leaves in some place dry and with enough ventilation.
You could accelerate the process by toasting the leaves, but i just wait.
Just use the mortar on the leaves to grind it. Then you take out all the fiber in it with a sieve.
This is a sieve:
You can use this on every recipe that contain flour. I mix 2 parts of flour with 1 of weed flour.
Always remember that digested weed takes longer and last longer. So BE CAREFULL. It's usual for newbs to weed cooking, to eat to much because "they are not high"
Be patient and wait, or you will be so high that you could get paranoid.
Never trick someone into eating weed without knowing. Even for a regular smoker the things could get out of control, because the up is so slow that you really sometimes think that you cant get higher, but you do.
Test your doses always. Start from the bottom and wait for the next day.
Sometimes you could get a hangover in the next day. It usually goes away by smoking weed. If you eat you will be fine, but you will get the hangover the next day.
Always be responsible. Don't eat if you are going to drive in the next few hours.
Thats all folks!
