First of all, one of the biggest mistakes you can make when attempting to make anything with cannabis is that of overlooking the importance of sufficiently heating it. Generally speaking, cooking with cannabis as the professionals do means first knocking yourself up a batch of oil or butter. The only problem being that so many newcomers believe that it really is as simple as melting some butter and throwing in some bud, or simply chucking random handfuls of cannabis into a bottle of oil. Unfortunately, in order for what you are making to have the desired effect and flavour, you need to heat the cannabis to the perfect temperature at which the oils are transferred to whatever it is you are making. If you do not heat it sufficiently, this doesn’t happen and you end up with a load of raw bud doing nothing for you or your culinary achievements at all.
