Cannabis flour is the perfect foundation for all your cannabis-based baking. Whilst you may not be able to eat it as it is, it unlocks a whole world of interesting cannabis cuisine. So here is how to successfully make it.
If you have a love for food, then marijuana has the potential to take that love to whole new levels. This is especially true when baking with marijuana, creating delicious homemade treats that have the power to both tantalize your taste buds, and your body and mind.
However, in order to bake with cannabis, you need the right ingredients. This is where cannabis flour comes in, and learning how to make it. It can act as a base for all your baking needs, and will feature in many of the recipes we have in store for you later. So whilst this recipe may not produce anything you can eat straight away (you can try eating flour, but we wouldn’t recommend it), it will give you the foundation you need to make some of the most mind-blowing and appetizing treats ever to grace your kitchen.
Time in Kitchen: Roughly 30 minutes
You will need:
1 gram of dry cannabis for every 1 cup of flour (results will vary depending on strength of cannabis)
A (coffee) grinder or mortar and pestle
1. Firstly, ensure that you cannabis is as dry as it can be. Otherwise, you run the risk of mould growing in your flour should you decide to store it for long periods of time.
2. Take you cannabis and grind it up as finely as possible – the closer it is to powdered form, the better.
Note: this recipe also a great way to use up trim that would otherwise be thrown away. In this case, use 1/2 cup of trim for each cup of flour.
3. Mix your ground up cannabis with the flour.
4. Place the flour mix into an airtight container, and store in a cool dark place for later use in other recipes.
Easy! The only notable difficulty about making your own cannabis flour is that it can be time-consuming to make a batch. But once you have, you are set up for all your future cannabis baking needs!
