What’s up VapeFusers!
Are you after a totally yummy way to get rid of all of that AVB (already vaped bud) that you’ve got lying around? VapeFuse has got you covered!
If the state you’re living in doesn’t allow you easy access to cannabis edibles, making your own cannabis-infused goodies may be the only way you can get your edible high on.
A simple and tasty way to use up your AVB is to make cannabis-infused chocolate, which is literally just the act of combining your AVB with melted chocolate!
Traditional cannabis-infused chocolate would generally consist of either cannabutter or a cannabis-infused cooking oil, but cooking with AVB is way simpler as your cannabis is already decarboxylated.
‘Decarbing’ your weed is the process of converting the THCA (acid) to THC, meaning that the direct consumption will get you high. Vaping your weed does a pretty good job of this!
What you’re going to need for your cannabis-infused chocolate is the following:
- 8 to 10 grams (2/8 – 3/8 of an oz) of decarbed cannabis (AVB)
- 100g of chocolate
- mortar and pestle
- small saucepan
- pipe bag
- stirring spoon
If you’re looking to make a strong edible, it’s best to use 1 part cannabis to 10 parts chocolate. For this recipe, I used just over 10 grams of vaped cannabis which was still fairly green.
If you’ve got some jewellery scales handy this will definitely simplify the sorting process, but if not, around 1/2 a cup should do it.
To break down your cannabis even more and improve the consistency of your chocolate, you’re going to want to grind down your vaped cannabis with a mortar and pestle.
This helps to keep any gritty cannabis out of the mix and will allow for a much smoother and richer cannabis-infused chocolate.
Once the cannabis has been ground to a fine poweder, half of its mass should’ve been reduced. The result is a much more refined mixing process and product.
If you don’t have access to a mortar and pestle, a coffee grinder should do the job just fine. You’re going to want to get your mixture as fine as possible.
Once your dried, vaped cannabis blend is ground down, break up your chocolate and add it to your saucepan over a very low heat.
Add your cannabis mixture to the chocolate in thirds so that the pan isn’t cooking your weed at too high a temp, at this stage a faint aroma is ok, but you don’t want the pan to be smoking.
As you can see from the image above, the mix will become quite thick. If you prefer a smoother cannabis-infused chocolate, use a 15:1 chocolate to AVB ratio instead.
The ratio I used made for a very fudgy edible, almost a hybrid between a pot brownie and an infused truffle. All in all, the cannabis-infused chocolate was a huge success!
The result from my batch wasn’t necessarily the prettiest, but it certainly packed a punch! I gobbled up three of these bad boys before bed on a Sunday and the effect was basically the same as a 50mg edible from a dispensary.
My fudgy cannabis-infused chocolates are the best way to top off a meal and are the perfect addition to any dinner party dessert tray.
Just make sure to inform your guests that these are, in fact, cannabis edibles!
The little canna-choccy seems to be pretty happy with the results. We at VapeFuse sincerely hope that reading this recipe has gotten you one step closer to making your own cannabis-infused chocolates.
