As Legality Spreads, Cannabis-Based Cooking, Baking Is On The Rise

November 15, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
According to a report from Seattle-based marijuana research firm Headset Inc., one of the fastest-growing ways consumers use marijuana is to infuse into meals and baked goods at home. In Washington and California, as many as 15-25 percent of cannabis users incorporated the plant into home-cooked meals: double the percentage reported in 2015. Cooking with cannabis at home can be fun, but it requires meticulous attention to detail because marijuana can’t be infused into food from its raw, flowery form. The cannabinoids and terpenes must be activated via a heating process called decarboxylation. A key skill for marijuana chefs and bakers to learn is preparation of a key cooking ingredient:  cannabutter, whose butter to decarboxylated cannabis ratio is 16:1. [Image Credit: © Headset Inc.
