Cannabis for Beginners: Can I Eat Raw Cannabis?

It's easy to make your own cannabis edibles at home, but it's not as easy as simply eating raw bud. That's because the cannabis flower needs to decarboxylate, or go through a process by which the THC becomes active in order for it to have a psychoactive effect. If you've never made edibles before, start with a "fire cracker": all you need is a little cannabis flower, peanut butter (or Nutella), graham crackers, and a baking sheet. But when it's ready, just be sure to wait at least two hours once you eat your first dose before trying more.


After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
