Using Cannabis Edibles

Eating cannabis products is very safe, however it should also be noted that is a completely different experience as far as the effects of the THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis. Hemp contains very minute traces of THC, whereas the cannabis plant can contain a high percentage of THC.

Tetrahydrocannabinol, abbreviated THC, is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis.

Consuming cannabis edibles changes the way your body metabolizes THC. When someone smokes cannabis it quickly reacts in the brain because the human brain contains a large amount of cannabinoid receptors. However when a person eats cannabis, THC will metabolize in the blood.

What this means is that it generally takes an hour to feel the psychoactive effects when you eat it. The effects will also last many hours. Inexperienced 'edible' users may experience bad reactions.

Majoon Recipe

 

Majoon is an Arabic word for cannabis confections. There are many variations of this recipe, depending largely on regional differences. However, they all contain oil or fat of some sort and special care should always be taken to avoid overcooking and burning. In Arabic medicine they are often considered aphrodisiacs.

Ingredients:

  • 14 grams (1/2 ounce) butter
  • 7 grams (1/4 ounce) well-ground cannabis buds
  • 50 grams (2 ounces) washed and chopped dates and figs
  • 25 grams (1 ounce) chopped nuts
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon each of spice, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon

Directions:

Warm the butter in a large sauce pan and then add the cannabis along with all of the other ingredients, warming gently for 10-12 minutes while stirring occasionally. Once done, pour the mixture into a greased baking tray and allow to cool before cutting the majoon into small squares (you can also roll them  into balls). We suggest serving them with natural yogurt.

This form of recipe can be found in an abundance of cultures, often used as a medicinal cure for pain. Other variations include ingredients such as henbane, datura seeds and poppy seeds, enhancing the psychoactive effect of the majoon and giving rise to a more opium-like experience.

Makes about 20 squares. 1-2 squares per person is the recommended dose.
