Firecracker edibles are super delicious and very easy to make! In a basic weed firecracker, you will find three ingredients. A fatty nut spread, some kind of cracker, and cannabis!
Commonly, these edibles are made using graham crackers and peanut butter, but you can mix this up and have some fun with the other ingredients if you wish!
There are certain things you need to remember before making your firecrackers, including decarboxylating your marijuana if it is raw. This article will run through how this is done, as well as how to make firecracker weed edibles! Let’s dive in!
Why Make Firecracker Edibles?
You will definitely want to try a firecracker edible at some stage in your life! They are delicious and very easy to make.
You will need to make sure that you are careful when measuring the amount of weed you put into a batch so that you know how much THC is in each edible. This is to prevent taking too high a dose.
Firecracker edibles are great because you can microdose the weed, allowing you to enjoy the high for a long time.
Edibles can take up to two hours to take effect, and the high that you get from them could last up to 6 hours. It can have a different effect from when you vape or smoke the drug. Edibles have been found to have more of a sedative effect than other options.
Edibles are also great because you can carry them with you anywhere and no one will be wiser.
However, making edibles does take a certain level of time and skill. The CBD and THC in weed are only activated when they have been decarboxylated, so you will need to make sure to do this.
However, the firecracker is one of the easiest edibles to make, with the entire process taking just 30 minutes! Let’s take a look at how to make firecrackers in the best way possible!
How To Make Firecracker Edibles
Gather The Ingredients!
The first step to making firecracker edibles is to choose the strain of marijuana that you want. There are lots of different strains, so you will want to choose the one that best suits you.
Harlequin is a great strand that offers a great CBD-to-THC ratio. This strand of weed is great for medical use.
You could opt for Super Lemon Haze if you are looking for a strand that is high in THC content. This strand will get you high very quickly.
ACDC is a great strand of weed that will help you to relax as it has more CBD than THC in it.
You will want to make sure that you measure out the correct amount of weed, depending on your tolerance. If you have a high tolerance to the drug, you will want to add more to your firecrackers than if your tolerance is low.
For instance, you could have anywhere between 0.1 grams and 2 grams per firecracker.
The next ingredient that you will need to choose is your cracker. Lots of people prefer to use graham crackers for this edible, but some people may have other preferences. You will want the cracker to be flat, thin, and big to make the best firecracker edibles out there!
The spread that you choose will have a big effect on the taste of your product. For instance, if you decide to use Nutella, the end product will taste very different from using peanut butter. If you’re feeling particularly daring, you could even choose to use both peanut butter and Nutella!
The spread that you choose will need to have a high-fat content because this will help your body to process the weed in the product.
You will also need to have some aluminum foil. You will need enough so that you can cover each cracker with it.
How To Decarboxylate Your Marijuana
Before you start making your product you will need to decarboxylate your weed. To do this, you will need to place it in the oven, but before you do this, you will want to finely grind it.
The process of decarboxylation converts the cannabinoids in the weed into active cannabinoids. This means that the THCA and CBDA in the marijuana will be turned into THC and CBD.
Once you have ground the weed, place it in the oven at 25 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
This will not fully decarboxylate the weed, but you will be putting it back in the oven when it is on the crackers and during this time, the weed will fully activate.
Step By Step Guide To Making Your Firecracker Edibles
Measuring the ingredients is important when it comes to making your firecracker edibles. You will need to make sure that you have the right amount of each ingredient. You will need the following:
- ½ cup of peanut butter or Nutella
- 2-3 grams of ground cannabis
- 10 cracker halves
The amount of weed that you will need to fill the crackers will depend on how strong you want your firecrackers to be. This will also depend on the potency of the cannabis.
After you have decarboxylated your weed, you will then need to make the crackers! Follow the steps below:
- Smear one side of the cracker of your choice with the spread of your choice. Spread this onto the cracker in a thick layer but leave a gap at the edge.
- Next, sprinkle the activated weed evenly throughout the cracker using a knife.
- Next, place another cracker on top of the first to create a weed sandwich!
- Press the two together and wrap the foil around each one individually.
- Then, put the wrapped crackers on the rack in the middle of the oven and bake them for 25 minutes at 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Allow the crackers to cool after you remove them from the oven before unwrapping them.
After you have completed all of the steps above, it is time to enjoy your crackers!
Remember, it can take up to two hours for the firecrackers to have an effect on you, so try to refrain from eating more than one initially!
How Do You Make Edibles More Intense?
If your edibles are not strong enough, there are a few ways that you can make your edibles more intense. Let’s take a look at some of the ways to do this!
Ensure The Cannabis Is Prepared Correctly
You will need to make sure that you have properly activated your cannabis. If you find that the weed is not having the desired effect, ensure that you have done this correctly. Raw cannabis plants will not get you high, so this could be where you are going wrong!
You will need to add heat to the plant to do this, so ensure that you complete this step properly.
Add More Marijuana
You can always change the dosage that you add to each firecracker. This is a matter of trial and error to work out the dosage that works best for you. Some people will want to double the usual dosage depending on their tolerance to the drug.
Use More Potent Weed
The stronger the plant that you cook with, the stronger the edibles will be when they are complete. There are lots of different strengths of weed out there, so you should choose one with a strength that suits you.
Augment Your Edibles With Concentrates
If you want to make your marijuana stranger, you should augment your edibles with certain concentrates. For example, kief, hash, and hash oil will all add potency to your recipe. You will just need to add them to the edibles.
Layer The Ingredients
You can also make the edibles more potent by layering the medicated ingredients. For example, if you have infused some butter with cannabis, it is a good idea to add a layer of this butter to your firecrackers. This will add more potency to your edibles.
If you are making weed cakes, then you can use all infused ingredients. Bake with infused butter, infused milk, and infused sugar. If you are planning to use infused ingredients in these edibles you should be careful not to put too much in them. You don’t want to end up with edibles that are too strong for you.
How Do You Make Firecracker Edibles With ABV?
ABV marijuana is weed that has ‘already been vaped’. If you have already enjoyed the weed once over, you can still enjoy it a second time around!
So, if you have already used your weed in a vaporizer, it will still contain a significant amount of cannabinoids. However, you will not want to re-vape the cannabis because it will taste significantly worse than the first time around! Instead, you can use this weed in firecracker edibles.
You will not need to decarboxylate the weed if you choose to do this, as the process of vaping will have already decarboxylated it for you. This means that you can eat the weed directly without repurposing it.
The best way to enjoy ABVs is by making firecracker edibles as above!
How Do You Infuse Edibles?
Infusing your butter with cannabis is a very common way to make edibles. Butter is a great item to infuse your cannabis with because it is versatile and delicious. The medium for cannabis infusion must be high in fat because the THC needs to bind to fat molecules.
These molecules are abundant in butter, so it is perfect to use! Infusing butter with your cannabis will take a few hours, but it is very easy to do.
As with the firecracker edibles, you will first need to decarboxylate your weed. If you do not complete this step, you will end up with a canna butter that doesn’t have any effect.
You will need a baking sheet, parchment paper, a saucepan, a container, and a cannabis grinder to complete this infusion. You will also need butter, weed, and water.
It is recommended that you use the ratio 1:1 of cannabis to butter when you are making this. Follow the steps below:
- First, decarb the cannabis. To do this, place the weed on a baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes with the oven preheated to 245 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Next, grind the cannabis. You want it to be small enough so that it can fit through your mesh strainer.
- After this, you should melt the butter. This should be done on very low heat. Melt 1 cup of butter in a saucepan, adding 1 cup of water to avoid burning the butter.
- Then, add the cannabis to the saucepan.
- Simmer the mixture on low heat, ensuring it doesn’t exceed 200 degrees Fahrenheit as temperatures this high will burn the mixture. Simmer this for around 2-3 hours, occasionally stirring the butter.
- Then, strain the mixture with a mesh strainer. Discard the rest of the plant material.
- After you have done this, place the butter in the refrigerator to solidify.
So, there you have it! Firecrackers are very easy to make, and they only take a few minutes to prepare. They are very versatile and they allow you to control your dosage of weed very easily.
Not to mention, you have complete creative control over the type of spread, cracker, and marijuana strain you use.
If you are looking to get stoned or try out an alternative type of medicine, firecrackers are a great way to do so! You won’t need to expose your lungs to smoking combusted weed, instead simply ingesting the marijuana.
Always remember, it takes a while for the firecracker to take effect, so be patient!
