Making your own edibles is way more fun than buying it, and you can adjust your end product to your own liking. But sometimes It takes patience and know-how, and Cannadish loves to help give people more knowledge and spread out recipes. Whether you’re interested in making cannabis Gummy bears, an infused lasagna or a bulletproof Cannabis coffee.
The most important ingredient before making your infusion is your strain of cannabis.
So, which strains do you use?
There are a few things that help determine how the high hits: your tolerance is a very important one. There are many stories about someone that tried edibles for the first time and just received a way to strong high which sometimes made the experience incredibly uncomfortable. Even if you are a long time smoker. We suggest to start with a lower Dose and slowly going up to find out what is the right amount for you to make it an amazing experience.
Next to tolerance is your metabolism, your weight, whether you already had a lot to eat that day or taking edibles on an empty stomach. Your choice in strain also results in different types of highs.
First, let’s choose if you want to go for a sativa or indica strain. Most users find sativa strains uplifting and creative while indicas are relaxing and sedating.
Asking for advice at your local dispensary is always a good idea before getting out the mixing bowl and measuring cup. Tell them the specifics you’re seeking. Strains that will mellow you out for 8 hours or strains that that’ll help get you through a tough project are very different.
Choosing the right strain is also important as it could change the flavor and aroma of your finished product. Some strains have a citrus aroma, while others, like Gorilla Glue are known for coffee and chocolate aromas great for a Coffee or Chocolate infused recipe.
There are so many strains, and it can be a lot of fun experimenting which strain suits which cannabis dish.
