It's that spooky season and I know everyone is pretty excited about it. So I thought it would be cool to infuse what I'm calling a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Taste-A-Like. It's not exactly a replica since, these little devils are ball shaped and not cup shaped, but they're pretty close to a similar flavor and texture.
For this recipe, I used 5.5 grams of whole cannabis called Pineapple Planet. It's just what I had on hand but probably wasn't the best choice for this particular recipe. If I had made a raspberry truffle or something more fruit flavored, I think this would have been a perfect pairing. I'd opt for something a little more earthy tasting than fruity. Oh well, you live and you learn. I did end up with about 20mg THC/truffle which is perfect since I'll usually pop 2 or 3 at a time. They're very tasty so it's hard to eat just one.
Further, as I mention in the video, I covered the cannabis when decarboxylating and I think that contributed to more of the flavor getting trapped in the cannabis. It's not necessarily a bad thing but it does seem like a lot of you prefer your edibles to NOT taste like weed.
Which also brings me to some tips on minimizing the odor when you're infusing oils/butter to use in your edibles.
In the form below, enter the approximate percentage of THC (or CBD) of your flower or concentrate. Then how many grams you're planning to use. Followed by the number of cups (or parts of cups) of oil or butter you're planning to infuse. Hit the "Calculate" button and see the approximate dosage per teaspoon and tablespoon.
