On the other hand Cooking with Cannabis seems a great solution for patients and caregivers of those that suffer from ailments. Marijuana-infused products can be a handy way for one to take their medication in little doses.

In order to get the psychoactive effects of Cannabis, the THC in cannabis must be converted to THC in a chemical easy heating process called decarboxylation. By heating the plant material and cooking it with fat we can convert the THC in your cannabis into a THC rich concentrate. Most of the people just mix their Cannabis with butter or coconut oil and heat it up. After a while, it is ready to infuse your mix with edibles like brownies and any other recipe and cook with cannabis.
When we consume cannabis-infused products the THC is metabolized by our liver too. One will still get a high effect from these products, that’s the reason why cannabis foods must be consumed moderately. The effect might take some time(around 40 minutes) to be seen. It is advised that you eat as little quantity as possible and wait until you are comfortable with these products-otherwise you can easily get knocked out.
