How to Smoke a Bowl: Smoking Cannabis from A Pipe
One of the best and most well-liked cannabis consumption methods is through cannabis gummy bears and worms. Why is clear to see? Weed gummies are very easy to make and they provide the perfect little bite-sized and delicious way to dose.
There’s also just something fun and a little mirthful about breaking out a tin of your very own cannabis gummies. Finally, even in some fully-legal adult-use cannabis jurisdictions, gummy edibles are not legal for sale. In which case, you may have no choice but to make your own.
Gummy bears and gummy worms were by your side when you were a kid, and now, with a little bit of THC you can easily rekindle your love of all things gummy.
Why make THC gummies?
Smoking is the most common way of getting consuming cannabis — and for good reason. It’s easy, fun, and more or less 100 percent of the time it works every time. But comparing smoking weed and eating edibles is like comparing water polo and synchronized swimming — they’re both played in a pool and both are good ways to waste the whole afternoon, but they’re still very different sports.
When you eat edibles, the high can be totally different from smoking. It’s an immersive experience that you can feel tingling across your whole body, creating a happy, giggly, often downright euphoric feeling that can have you glued to the couch or laughing at the screensaver on your TV for hours.
Because they can take well over an hour to kick in and the high can last for a few hours, they may not be the most convenient everyday sort of high, but make no mistake — edibles can be well worth it.
Also, if you’re trying to avoid smoking but still want to get high, or you’d like a way to take your medicine without stinking up the house, edibles are a convenient treat that’s hard to beat.
Gummies and Other Edibles Safety
Most experienced edibles drinkers undoubtedly have a tale that goes something like this: After eating the gummy, nothing happened, so I took more about an hour later, and, uh…I need you to come to pick me up.
Patience is essential when using edibles because they can easily take an hour and a half or longer to work. Just relax and wait if after an hour you still don’t feel anything. You can have a slower metabolism or a full stomach when you ate the food.
In either case, the best course of action while consuming edibles is to simply start with a tiny dose or the usual quantity you take, then wait patiently. Be aware that each person’s cannabis experience and the effects that various cannabinoids have on them are unique.
Safety is another consideration while creating cannabis candy. They will appear and taste almost exactly like conventional gummy bears to an unwary toddler. Keep your marijuana candies safely sealed and hidden away from any children in the house to prevent a trip to the emergency room and a call from Child Protective Services.
Because THC and CBD are both soluble in fat, the body must consume them in fat in order to process them. THC, CBD, and various other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are incorporated into the cannabis oil mixture to be broken down by the body.
The simplest approach to producing edibles is to have your own cannabis infusion on hand. The main ingredient in most THC gummy recipes is cannabis oil, usually coconut oil that has been infected with cannabis.
Making your own edibles is never more than a few steps away when you have your own supply of cannabis coconut oil on hand. And fortunately, it’s probably simpler than you think to infuse coconut oil with marijuana.
To ensure that the gummies aren’t overpowering, we advise using less cannabis in this recipe than in other cannabis oil recipes, but you can adjust the amount to suit your tolerance and the THC content of your cannabis.

Decarboxylate a Bit of Marijuana
Apart from purchasing some marijuana, decarboxylating is the first and most important stage in the production of edibles. Decarboxylation is the process by which the chemicals in cannabis are made active and THCA is changed into THC, causing you to feel high.
Heat is the main component, therefore all you have to do to decarboxylate your marijuana is ground some up and bake it for 30 to 45 minutes at 220 to 245 degrees Fahrenheit (105 to 120 degrees Celsius). Just be sure to watch it to prevent it from getting too warm.
Combine it on the stove
After decarboxylating roughly 3.5 grams of marijuana, warm a cup of coconut oil in a skillet to a temperature of 130 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (55 to 65 degrees Celsius). Add the marijuana, stir often, and boil the mixture for about three hours.
A twin boiler is an additional option. Simply add water to the bottom of the pan, coconut oil to the top, and cannabis, and stir. Heat at 130 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (55 to 65 degrees Celsius) for about three hours. Simply combine the oil and the cannabis in a slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for about three hours.
