Kind Caps Edible Hack: Cookies & Gummies - Weedguide
Thursday, Mar 21, 2019

I often get distracted, and this was no exception. The morning of the party arrived, and the thought of decarbing flower and infusing some cooking oil just added to the stress. My local dispensary doesn’t carry cannabutter – get on it, Apothecarium! – so it was time to get creative.

Freezer stash

I have a jar of 11 Kind Caps in my freezer. Why? Because each capsule has 30 mg. THC, way more than I can manage. (I used to think there was no such thing as a weed hangover, at least until I downed one of these; now I know better.) I froze them so I could cut a capsule in half, without making an oily mess. But I had also considered repurposing them, extracting the oil from the capsules to use in a recipe. My cookie commitment was the perfect catalyst.

Trying to empty the oil from a Kind Cap is not just messy, it’s wasteful. Frozen, the oil doesn’t come out at all. At room temperature, squeezing the capsules produced just a drop or two, with most of the oil covering my fingers. Instead, I poured 2 tablespoons of boiling water on 6 Kind Caps (totaling 180 mg. THC) in a small cup. Almost immediately, the capsules dissolved, their contents dispersing into the water. Since the cookie recipe called for 2 tablespoons of water along with vegetable oil, this should be quite an easy substitution.
