The Best Cannabis-Infused Cream Cheese


It’s velvety smooth and works perfectly in all of your holiday recipes! Today I’m going to teach you how to make The Best Cannabis-Infused Cream Cheese.

Cooking with Cannabis Is Easy!

The first step when cooking with Cannabis, is to decarb your weed. Plain and simple.

Here’s how you do it, and make sure you don’t skip this important step!

Once you have enough decarbed weed, you can use it in so many other yummy dishes.

Why Is Decarbing Weed Important?

In its raw state, cannabis won’t provide the psychoactive effects we’re after.

However, once you decarb weed, you ensure that the all-important cannabinoids like THC and CBD become activated and available.

When done correctly, the result is more potent edibles and a better bang for your buck with little waste.

Unfortunately for edibles, you can’t simply sprinkle your raw weed directly onto your foods as if it were salt or pepper. Cannabis in its raw state isn’t psychoactive. It is the process of decarboxylation that converts and activates cannabinoids to elicit a high.

Interestingly, decarboxylation is essentially the conversion of THCa into THC or CBDa into CBD. Without decarbing your weed, THCa and CBDa will not fit into the endocannabinoid receptor sites in your body. Thusly, inhibiting the effects of cannabis that we’re after.

Many beginners make the mistake of not decarboxylating their weed. Others do it incorrectly. It’s the most crucial step in the cooking process as a miss-step will result in a less potent, benign edible.

Skip it or forget it and you’ll have a weak product that lacks active cannabinoids.
