“In the last year I have overheard and been party to a number of conversations about ‘dosing’ your food, or more specifically how to properly infuse food with THC or CBD.
I preface all discussions about THC and CBD with the following disclaimer; I’m not a medical practitioner, I don’t even play a doctor on TV, my opinions are based on personal experience and the years I have been successfully infusing food for clients as a professional chef.”
Ways to Infuse Your Food with Cannabis
There are two ways you can infuse your Thanksgiving dinner with cannabis- an oil or a canna-butter. Choosing your method depends entirely on your preference. Whether it’s an infused olive or coconut oil, THC oil or CBD, or even organic butter or margarine, the choice is yours. Each will yield a different result in both taste, and the effects you feel, so it’s important to be mindful of the method you’re choosing, and the crowd you’re serving it to.
Chef Wagman also suggests being careful with the heat setting you’re using, when infusing your oil.
