How to grow cannabis?
Before we move on to the main topic of the article, we want to give you some tips on how to grow cannabis at home, and these tips can be very important to you if you are a beginner. If you are a seasoned professional, then you can skip this paragraph and continue reading the rest of the article.
Since we assume that you will grow cannabis indoors, it is necessary to set aside one room just for that, and that can be a basement or any other room. Ventilation should be good, because airflow is very important for the plant, and also because of the smell that you do not want to stick around. Also pay attention to temperatures, humidity and light, because without that no plant, including cannabis, can grow. We recommend that you buy high quality soil as well as pots with drainage. In case you notice pests or mold, you will have to buy special chemicals to treat the plant. Finally, it is important to learn the development cycle of a plant to know when is the right time to harvest.
Products from your home-grown cannabis
If you are creative, you can make dozens of different cannabis products, but also dishes and many other things. For example, you can add cannabis leaves to your favorite pasta with chicken and mushrooms. In addition to being delicious, it will also look interesting. You can also make different types of cakes, such as brownies. And to all these cakes you add, cannabutter which is actually cannabis-infused butter which we will talk about first.
Cannabutter or cannabis-infused butter is, as its name suggests, butter to which cannabis has been added. Cannabis-infused butter is very popular, but it is not that easy to make, so we will start with it. To achieve psychoactive potential, you need to know exactly how to perform each step. First you need to put cannabis leaves in the oven to decarb it. This will usually take about half an hour, unless it is old, dry cannabis. Then you need to grind it and then add it to the butter that was previously melted. Then you still have to simmer it for about 2 hours, during which time stir occasionally and never let it boil. If you have done everything properly, it remains to cool it and it is ready for consumption.
Both THC and CBD gummies are extremely popular, among most popular cannabis-infused products. Eating gummies are significantly different from tuxedos. Although eating THC gummies can also get you high, but the feeling you will have will definitely be different. Also, CBD gummies are a great choice as they can serve for a wide variety of things. They can be for sleeping, for increasing energy, a way to get the required dose of vitamins and much more. Also, the great thing when making gummies home-grown cannabis is that you can choose any flavor. You need to decarboxylate cannabis and then add it to some oil, for example coconut. You need water, as well as two types of gelatin, one flavored and the other unflavored. If you need an idea of which flavor to choose, visit unclebudshemp.com and get inspired. When you mix it all up, put it in gummy mold and leave in the freezer.
CBD has many benefits for our skin and that is why every year you notice more and more CBD-infused cosmetics on store shelves. But all this is much better if you do it yourself, because you will not use various chemicals that are normally used in the beauty industry. Anti-inflammatory properties are especially important for people who have acne. Also, cosmetics that contain cannabis hydrate the skin very well, so if you have dry skin, make your own cream.
Combine your favorite beverage, beer and cannabis. Although there are also commercial beers with cannabis, it is not yet as popular as cosmetics, so make your own. It is up to you to put in as much cannabis as you want to be tall. If you don’t like beer, you can make cannabis cocktails and it will be the best party you have ever organized.
Chocolates are another type of edibles with gummies that you can infuse with cannabis. The calming effects of chocolate on humans are known, and if you add cannabis, the effect will be even better. It is very easy to make cannabis chocolate. Melt the chocolate you like, milk or black, and then add cannabis in coconut oil for example. If you have marijuana leaf-shaped molds, the chocolates will look great.
Whichever of these products you make, you need to know dosing. As it is impossible to know the dosage the first time you do something, our advice is to start with smaller doses and then gradually increase until you find the ideal one for you. Otherwise, you risk the product being too strong for you and not being able to enjoy it.
