- First, start with a low dosage when making edibles. This will help ensure you can zero in on the perfect dosage of each batch of new edibles that you make.
- Remember, each batch of edibles can be different. Just because you utilize the same amount of cannabis does not mean that it is the same potency as before. Since edibles are measured in milligrams for their dosage, it is easy to see a large change in edible potency based upon differences in the input cannabis’ potency level.

Many of the below recipes will use a cannabis butter as the main ingredient to infuse the product. This can be created fairly easily with a crock-pot or even on top of the stove. The trick to making a good cannabis butter is patience. To this point, you want to keep the temperature fairly low while making the butter. When baking at-home cannabis butter, remember you can keep your crockpot on low and let it simmer for many hours. This will give ample time for your cannabis to turn the butter not only a beautiful green-hue but also be packed with THC goodness from the infusion process.
After the process of cooking the cannabis into the butter is complete, you will then want to pull any plant material out before making a final product. This can be done easily with cheesecloth which can be fastened on top of a bowl. Then you pour the cannabutter into the bowl through the cheesecloth. During this process, the butter will seep through the cloth and the plant matter any stems or buds which are left in the butter will catch on the top for easy removal. Remember that the butter will be very hot while melted so be sure not to touch any of it during this process. To make this process a bit easier, it is best to fasten the cheesecloth on top of the bowl.
