Alternate Infusion Options
The beautiful thing about making your own edibles at home is that there are many different ways to infuse a recipe.
Choosing an infusion option should be based on your personal preferences and what you already have available on hand.
We will explore several options below.
Cannabis olive oil is a light, delicious, and versatile cannabis infusion that is an important staple recipe for any cannabis cook to master.
Other oil options that work would include:
Decarbed Cannabis Flower
Then you can add the decarbed cannabis to the mix for this recipe, just as you do any herb like dried basil or oregano.
If you plan to add decarbed cannabis flower to this salad, add 1 gram* of ground decarbed cannabis flowers in step 2.
*Of course, this is just a suggestion and should be adjusted to your personal preferences and tolerance level.
Raw Cannabis Leaves
Cannabis leaves do not produce cannabinoids quite as mature flower buds do, so many people feel they are useless or discard them.
Of course, not everyone has access to fresh cannabis leaves all year round, but this is a great way to use them up if you do.
If you want to add raw cannabis leaves to this salad, use 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped raw cannabis, loosely packed, and add it in step 2.
One of the easiest ways to make infused foods is with cannabis concentrates or extracts.
Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the elevated experience you are looking for.
And because you only need to add a tiny bit, cannabis concentrates will not disrupt your food’s volume, texture, or flavor.
If you plan to add cannabis concentrates to this salad, stir in your desired concentrate amount with the olive oil and then add as directed.
