Cannabis Infused Chocolate bars

Weed chocolate combines all the benefits of cannabis with all the taste of chocolate. This article will tell you everything you need to know about how to make edibles. We’ve even included a cannabis chocolate recipe to get you started.

The effects of edibles

In general terms, the effect of cannabis edibles depends on the strain. For example, a high-THC strain is still a high-THC strain. A high-CBD strain is still a high-CBD strain. The difference between cannabis edibles and smoking/vaping is that cannabis edibles are processed through the digestive system and smoking/vaping works through the respiratory system.

What this means in practical terms is that cannabis edibles can take longer to get to work, but their effect can also last longer. How long cannabis edibles take to start working depends on how long they take to digest. “Light” foods, such as smoothies, candies and cannabis chocolate generally start working fairly quickly. Their effect does not necessarily last as long as the effect of “heavier” foods. That said, you can always top-up your dose if need be.

Why chocolate has become a popular way of consuming cannabis 

Probably the single, biggest reason why chocolate is a popular way of consuming cannabis is, quite simply, that it tastes good. There are, however, more practical reasons.

Chocolate cannabis is really easy to make. In principle, you can just melt chocolate, pop in your ground bud and let the chocolate harden again. Alternatively, you could stir in food-grade cannabis oil. Either way, you save yourself the intermediate step of needing to make cannabutter or canna-oil.

Another, often overlooked, benefit of cannabis chocolate is that it’s very easy to spread the cannabis evenly around the chocolate. Basically you just stir well. This means you have the option to create “bite-sized” chocolates for more flexible dosage.

High-quality dark chocolate has its own complementary health benefits. In particular, it’s full of antioxidants, which have all kinds of benefits for the human body. Ideally, you want to choose a type of chocolate which is rich in cocoa and low in sugar.

Making cannabis chocolate 

Here is a quick and easy recipe for cannabis chocolate.

Ingredients

1-5g decarboxylated cannabis bud OR 1-5 drops of cannabis oil
100g chocolate (any kind, but from a health perspective, dark is best)

When you’re first trying out cannabis chocolate, you usually want to stick to a low dose. Literally 1-2 grams/drops per 100g of chocolate. Unless your condition is particularly severe, then 5 grams/drops should be an absolute maximum.

If you’re using bud, then it absolutely must be decarboxylated. In short, grind it up thoroughly. Put it in an oven-proof dish or on an oven-proof tray. Leave to bake at 177C/350F/GM4 for about an hour.
If you’re using cannabis oil, make 100% sure it is food-grade oil. Cannabis oil intended for topics can be dangerous if eaten.

Method

  • Melt your chocolate. You can do this by placing a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water or use a microwave.
  • Once the chocolate has melted stir in the bud/oil.
  • When everything is well mixed, transfer the liquid chocolate to a mould. In principle, this can be anything you like. In practice, silicone ice-cube trays are a great choice. As you pour in the cannabis chocolate, pat it down with a spoon. This will remove any air bubbles.
  • Leave in a cool place to set.

You can put cannabis chocolate in a fridge, but if you do, the fat will start to separate from the cocoa. You’ll see this as the cannabis chocolate develops a “patchy” appearance. It will still be perfectly edible, it just won’t look as nice.

Finally

There’s a lot you can learn about how to make edibles. This cannabis chocolate recipe will get you started. It’s all you need to know to make delicious weed chocolate.
