How to Make CBD Edibles
You can make your own CBD edibles at home using either extracts or flower and just a handful of other ingredients. Of course, some of the more high-end edibles are harder to make and get the cannabinoids evenly distributed. Nevertheless, certain CBD edibles are super simple to pull together right in your own kitchen.
Types of CBD Edibles Easy Enough to Make at Home
Much like making edibles with any other type of cannabis, you can easily pull off something like CBD-infused baked goods. Brownies are a safe first attempt for a lot of DIYers. However, you can also make simple candies or even beverages using CBD extracts.
What You’ll Need to Make CBD Edibles
If you intend to make edibles like brownies or baked goods with flower (or AVB) you will need a fair amount of flower and your food ingredients. With CBD flower, CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is the carboxylated version, so you may want to decarb before using the flower much as you do with weed. Of course, there has been some research on the benefits of CBDA, so you don’t necessarily have to decarb if you don’t want to. You can add the ground flower to the recipe as is, or use it to make your own extracts in butter or oil.
With CBD Extract, the primary thing you will need is a good extract and the food ingredients you plan to use. For example, you can simply measure out the desired dose for a full batch of brownies into your batter. Use the CBD oil or extract in place of one of the fluids. For instance, if the recipe calls for a half-cup of vegetable oil, add your CBD oil to the half cup first, and then top it off with the rest of the oil you need.
How to Determine the Correct CBD Dosage with Homemade Edibles
Pay attention to the potency of the flower or extract you use and the number of servings you will have in the end. For example, if you are making a pan of CBD brownies, you may have around 20 brownies. If you add a bottle of CBD that contains 500mg, you would have roughly 25mg in each brownie. Dosage can be a little trickier with flower. Simply consider how many flowers one person would use in one setting—such as half a gram—and multiply that by the number of servings.
