Stems, sugar leaves, popcorn buds, and all of the other flower material that you don't end up curing and smoking are ideal for making infusions. This article will explain how to use cannabis trim and stems (popcorn buds and leaves too!) within your own homemade cannabis edibles.

Using trim is also a great way to practice making your own cannabis edibles as you will not be as worried about 'wasting' some premium cannabis. Not to mention, the strength of these edibles will help those who are new try cannabis edibles without feeling too overwhelmed.

These infusions won't be as strong as using high-quality cannabis buds, however, I personally find that this type of cannabis infusion can produce ideal daytime edibles, or, cannabis edibles for those who might be new to this type of cannabis experience.

Decarboxylate Your Trim

Like cannabis buds, your stems, trim, and other material will need to be decarboxylated in order to produce the best edibles you can.

After decarboxylation, store the cannabis material in a glass, airtight jar (or container) in a cool, dark cupboard. If you are planning to use the decarboxylated trim right away for edibles, you may do so.

In my own opinion, the most efficient way to make cannabis fat infusions is with a slow cooker and the double-boiler method. This ensures no burning (of the cannabis, or fat), as well as retaining a very consistent temperature throughout the infusion process.

Cannabis can be infused into:

Just to name a few.

You will also need cheesecloth (or micron filter) to strain the fat through as well as a container to strain your infused fat back into. I usually use the container that the fat originally came in, such as a jar of coconut oil.

Once you have infused your cannabis trim into a fat, get creative and think of snacks or meals that contain this fat.

Making Cannabis Edibles

Although many cannabis consumers do not think past the brownie or cookie when edibles are mentioned, cannabis edibles are highly versatile and just about anything can be infused with cannabis.

Some of the best tasting edibles I have ever made are dishes such as curries, pizza dough, gingerbread, waffles, meatballs, and fried chicken. The options for cannabis-infusions are almost endless.

Here are two very easy example recipes using cannabis coconut oil, both of these are considered snacks, however, if you would like more complex recipes for full meals, feel free to hit me up on Instagram @cannabisinformationinstitute.

Cannabis Gummies

  • 170 Grams Jello (Your Choice of Flavour!)
  • 28 Grams Plain Gelatin
  • 1/4 Cup Cannabis Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Water

  • Combine the water and oil in a pan and heat on low until steam begins to rise
  • Add gelatin and ensure it is fully dissolved
  • Now, add jello and heat on low while stirring for 6-7 minutes
  • Transfer to moulds and chill.

This is a sample of my own gummies made with the above recipe (Lime Flavour).

Cannabis Chocolate Fudge

  • Line a bread pan with parchment paper

I'm sure if you came round you would end up spending the night because you would be munching out too hard and just end up in a corner somewhere ? sometimes I forget I'm eating infused food and like 2 hours later I'm like ohhh thats why I'm feeling so nice

Yeah man, this is epic. I am absolutely making some of those gummies. Excellent reason to fire up the ol' crock pot... ?

I have a Magic Butter machine too to make the butter/oil, but I find crockpot is preferable... do you (or anyone else) have any experience/opinions with the MBM vs. crockpot?

We use the MBM in our classes for speed, and it is a beast of a machine, highly recommended, but I enjoy watching my oil in the slow-cooker for 4-5 hours lol.

I would definitely use the micron filters that came with the MBM instead of cheesecloth though!

If we ever have a Canadian meet up for Percy's, don't worry, ill be bringing the edibles ? 

 

I made another batch of the gummies yesterday as a tester for Halloween with an ice cube tray. I want to make some gummy pops that would just involve chucking a stick in the middle of the cubes/moulds when you chill them.
