Project Description

Any food that is infused with cannabinoids. Any recipe that calls for butter or oil can be readily infused with cannabis. An edible’s cannabinoids enter the bloodstream through the stomach and liver, which incurs a longer effect time before its effects can be felt. This process also draws out the edible’s intoxicating effects, sometimes causing them to last between four to six hours.

  • teas, soup, smoothies, salad dressing,
  • sodas
  • cannabis oil
  • baked goods: brownies, cookie dough, pasta
