If you’re an advocate of medical marijuana based on your illness or a need to ease discomfort for a serious health condition, look no further than no-bake cannabis edibles. Times are different now, and that traditional and bitter weed smell and taste in your baked treats have been replaced with some rather savory and delicious treats. Patients who use medical marijuana edibles continually seek food or capsules that appeal to their tastes and overall senses.
As a devout cannabis edible user, I’ve had the fortunate experience of opting for chocolate gummies versus baked goods. No particular reason why. I seem to be more addicted to chocolate than to pastries. Yet, all in all, the no-bake edibles that have taken the medical marijuana market by storm are particularly delicious and favored by more patients with chronic illnesses or diseases. Choosing a no-bake edible has provided the marijuana user excitement similar to discovering the latest in gluten-free diet baked goods.
The Top 6 No-Bake Weed Edibles
Before I dive into these delectable edibles, remember to go slow and start small. Eating medical marijuana can be way more intense than smoking it, therefore allow the necessary hour or so to set in before adding any more no-bake treats to your daily diet. Also, having cannabis oil on hand is essential, as it gives the edible more oomph than regular coconut or other oil.
- Kief Cookies – This type of cannabis cookie is excellent for novice bakers simply because they’re easy to prepare and requires no cannabutter. The recipe only calls for rounding up the kief–or dust cannabis particles–heating it up, and mixing it into your favorite cookie recipe. Chocolate chip or oatmeal raisins tend to be the most popular.
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls – One of the most signature combinations in the dessert industry is pairing chocolate and peanut butter. Just take a look at the ever-aging Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. As long as they’ve been around, not a soul complains about their continual addictive taste. So with medical marijuana no-bake edibles, it makes sense to follow a recipe that showcases these two popular ingredients together. Graham crackers, cannabutter, vanilla extract, chocolate chips, powdered sugar, and heaps of peanut butter are included, and trust me; you can’t go wrong.
- Gummy Bears – Cannabis gummy bears have been on the market for quite some time; however, knowing how to make them yourself creates a whole different experience in the medical marijuana edible department. Micro-dosing with cannabis gummy bears can come in the form of any style of a creature. Some look like caterpillars or worms, whereas others appear as real-life bears. Cannabis gummy bears are a lower dose varietal, yet the recipe involves an alcohol-based cannabis tincture. There’s also the option of adding coconut oil or grass-fed gelatin to the mixture. The latter adds extra collagen, protein, and amino acids not otherwise found in regular gummy bear recipes.
- Canna-Bananas – As the fastest edible to eat, canna-bananas require only three ingredients: dark chocolate, coconut oil, and of course, bananas. The key is to freeze each banana after dipping the fruit into the heated chocolate/oil solution. Yummy!
- Granola or cereal bars – These on-the-go no-bake edibles pack a punch. Infused with cannabutter, each granola bar can be made with simple ingredients such as oats, dried fruit, seeds or nut flakes, sugar or honey, and of course, unsalted butter to form each bar as its own. The cannabutter gives the treat its own dosage, so remember to allow an hour to go by after eating before trying another one.
- Marijuana Candies – Infused hard candy edibles are easy to ingest and can taste sensational if following a proper recipe. The ingredients are simple. For example, you only need sugar, water, corn syrup, and a cannabis tincture. You also can decide whether you want to make THC candy edibles or CBD hard candy edibles, as both allow you to customize and add any flavor you want.
The best no bake edibles can be made by following recipes either online or through trusted sources from cannabis dispensaries. If you choose to spend copious amounts of time in your kitchen concocting tasty edibles, have all the necessary ingredients on hand first before you begin your recipes. It’s no fun to start the no-bake creation, only to run out of things or not have the proper cannabis dosage before you delve into making the marijuana edibles.
