Set your oven to 230°F (110°C), grab your best grinder, and grind the marijuana into a fine powder. The finer the cannabis, the better it will absorb into the cookie when you bake it.
A hot cup of herbal tea can be a relaxing, therapeutic, and invigorating experience. And when that herb is cannabis, even more so. And arguably the best part? Brewing a mug of cannabis tea really isn’t any harder than making a normal cup of tea.
A cup of cannabis tea is also great because it’s very easy to experiment with dosage sizes from cup to cup, until you find one that’s just right.
Step 3: Slather and Bake the Cookies
With single-serving edibles you know exactly how much pot is in each serving, and can plan accordingly. Also, in the event the edibles come out too strong — or not strong enough — this gives you a good way to know how to readjust. In other words, it can be a good way to find your ideal dose.
Homemade edibles can often have a more noticeable flavor of marijuana, at times a flavor that can be oily, or taste like grass. One trick to get around this is to make edibles with strong flavors, either savory treats or edibles that are rich in chocolate, caramel, or similar ingredients.
You also don’t need to go searching for graham crackers —you can also use Ritz crackers, Club crackers, really whichever you like, though the surface area of the cookie will affect how much cannabis you can put on it.
Take the marijuana flower and any other herbal additives (such as dried chamomile) and steep in hot water mixed with your fat of choice for at least 5-10 minutes.
As you figure out how much weed you need for your THC butter or cannabis edibles, translating percentages to milligrams will help you calculate. Therefore, assuming you know what THC percentage potency your weed has, divide that by the number of pieces and you have an idea of how strong it will be per piece. The rest is up to you!
Since this is an ultimate guide to making your own medibles, we also tried to anticipate and answer any lingering questions that you might have had. Therefore we included some information we thought that you’d find helpful on homemade weed edibles sans cooking, how to get edibles to kick in faster, and how much weed you need to make medibles. Hopefully, we were comprehensive enough to include everything you need to know and clear enough to make it understandable. Hopefully, upon reading this you’re not too high to retain the information or too spacey to comprehend – maybe bookmark this page so that you can come back to it later; we’ve been there, we have a lot of bookmarks stored in our browsers for that very reason.
One quick and easy way would be to make some mighty marijuana butter with your BHO. Simply take one gram of BHO and add it to portioned butter, like a 1/2 cup stick of your favorite salted or unsalted butter. Heat the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat simmer temperature and add the wax by dropping it in and stirring until it is completely dissolved in the butter. Then pour the wax/butter mix into a resealable container and let sit until room temperature, refrigerate until needed.

You can make yourself some super-fast edibles, like in mere minutes, if you have some cannabis butter (cannabutter), or marijuana butter, on hand. If you don’t, then it may take a little longer, but either way the results are more than worth it! There is one specific recipe, which we’ll describe in detail below, that calls for using raw, ground weed to make a quick and easy weedible snack; elsewise you’re going to need to decarb your cannabis in order to make anything edible and the best thing to make with decarbed pot is cannabutter or hash butter, because then you can make anything into an edible by adding some weedy butter to it! Of course, cannabis tincture dropped into a favorite food can also create cannabinoid confections to enjoy on the quick. Dazed and confused? You won’t be, just read on and we’ll explain every way you can whip up a ganja goodie in as little time and with as little effort as possible – which, if you are a true stoner, should appeal to you immensely.
So, how do you make edibles with wax then?
There you have it! You now know how to make weed edibles, you know how to edibles candy, you know how to make gummy edibles, you know how to make edibles with wax, and if you’re creative with some of the candy molds, you even know how to make edibles fruit arrangements. Making cannabis butter and keeping some on hand to add to food or beverages is simply the best way to make a fast batch of THC edibles; but using THC tincture, like in tea or coffee, is pretty fast, easy and effective, too! And for a surprise bonus super-fast recipe we’ll even suggest canna chocolate: melt four cups of chocolate (either baker’s chocolate or chocolate chips) in a pan on the stove on medium heat and add 1/4 cup of marijuana butter, mix and pour into molds and now you have canna chocolates! See what else you can come up with at home with your slow cooker or grandma’s old recipe book!
How many cannabis edibles do you want to make? Assuming enough for one or two people, then probably a quarter to half an ounce, which is what most recipes you’ll find online call for, some go as high as a full ounce. The cannabutter recipe ratio of decarbed pot to butter is what determines your THC concentration – the strain’s THC concentration will influence the potency of the end product.
