Homemade Edibles Done Right
We’ve all heard the horror stories of someone from the 1970s eating “magic brownies” and falling asleep for 3 days. It was a guessing game as to what you’d feel. But these day companies, and California law, have made it easier to dose out edibles. But still, wouldn’t you like to make your own?
The fun thing about making your own edibles is that you can be as creative as you want. Mix whatever flavors you like. Don’t want it to be so strong, dilute your butter or oil with regular butter or oil. The possibilities are endless! Dosing is simple – just divide how many milligrams are in your recipe by the amount you yield, and you should get a close estimate of how strong they will be.
It’s simple to infuse just about anything now a days, from butter, to oil, even honey. There’s the crock pot route, in which you can just throw in as much flower as you’d like (at least an 1/8th) along with some butter and let them get to know each other for about 8 hours. If you’re looking for an easier way, you can purchase butter which is already infused, such as Heavenly Sweet Medibles 1000mg cannabutter. Whatever you’re looking for, from ounces to infuse your own butter, to pre-made butter, Mankind has got you covered. Come in and let us help you become a master edible chef!

“I got into baking because of my dad. He worked at a bakery when I was 9 and I’d often go to work with him and help him bake. He loves sweets, so when he stopped baking I started making cakes and other pastries for him. He taught me the joys of combining ingredients I love, and not always following the recipes, which is why I started cooking with cannabis.”
