Tip: Butter or oil makes it easy for the cannabinoids in marijuana to move through your system.
Tip: If you’re finding the dough difficult to roll because it’s cracking, let it rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes so it can soften.
After you’ve prepared the perfect cannabis cookies, you’ll need an extra dose of bliss. That’s where the cannabis-infused icing comes into play, and you don’t have to limit the frosting to just your marijuana cookies. You can add it to pretty much any other thing you want to turn into an edible. This includes cakes, fruits, donuts, pretzels, and even ice cream. Check out how to make the icing below.
Tip: If the icing is too thick, add a teaspoon of milk per time until you get a pipeable texture
Just like regular homemade cookies, you can store these cannabis-infused ones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to seven days. If you want to keep the cookies for more than seven days, transfer the airtight container into a refrigerator to avoid spoilage. Also, throwing a slice of bread into the container is a simple hack to keep your cookies soft and moist.
When it comes to cannabis edibles, you need to start low and go slow because it’ll take two to four hours before you feel the effect.
