No Bake Sweet And Salty CBD and Cannabis Energy Bites

These no bake sweet and salty CBD (and cannabis) infused energy bites are easy to make and are a delicious way to take your daily dose of medicine. 

I make some form of edible on a weekly basis. I’ve tried a variety of methods of taking my daily CBD (and sometimes cannabis) and I prefer to take it by mouth. Vaporizing cannabis is great for sudden attacks or break through pain. For me and many others we have discovered that eating regularly scheduled, micro dosed is the best way to reduce pain/stiffness and gain more mobility.

Why Make Edibles At Home?

Sure you can find a variety of edibles at local dispensaries but, besides having a limited selection of items, the doses are too high. Looking around at what is currently available near me I find mints, chocolate bars and gummies with doses ranging from 5 mg to 60 mg of THC per dose/piece. CBD edibles are limited to one or two gummy options.

Making your own edible will allow you to control not only which strains you use but also the dose. For me personally, even the lowest dose of edible available is too high. By creating your own edible it will allow you to get the dosage you need to function without having mind altering effects. Or, even worse, experiencing the “munchies” all day long. By micro dosing both of these effects are greatly reduced if not even eliminated.

What Are The Effects Of Edibles?

Edibles will affect you differently than vaping/smoking. It takes longer for the effects to kick in (about 1 to 2 hours) but the effects will also last longer. Generally the effects of edibles can last from 2 to 6 hours. The effects from vaporizing/smoking last about 1 to 3 hours. For those looking to use edibles for medical reasons the longer lasting effects of edibles can really help you make it through the day.

The effect from edibles is also generally stronger than vaporizing/smoking. Most people tend to feel the mental effects of oral CBD or cannabis stronger than other methods. Keep this in mind. If you end up taking too much cannabis orally the high that you might get will last longer. This can lead to feeling very uncomfortable for longer than you anticipated.

Remember to go low and go slow. Take the lowest dose you need and wait at least 2 hours before deciding to take additional doses.

One of my favorite ways to take my daily dose is through quick, no bake items such as these Sweet and Salty Energy Balls. They can be whipped up in just a few minutes and require no added wait time once done because you don’t need to bake them. I use a mini ice cream scoop to make sure that each ball is the same size so my doses are consistent. You can easily measure them out by the tablespoon to get similar results.

How Much CannaButter Should I Use In My Recipe?

The amount used is going to depend upon the dosage you would like per piece. If you are purchasing cannabis from a dispensary then it most likely will come with a label indicating the percentage of THC or CBD that is present. You can calculate either one. To calculate CBD simply follow the same steps as shown for the THC below.

Before we start here are some basic measurements we are going to be working with:

1 gram of cannabis = 1000 milligrams

28 grams of cannabis = 1 ounce

*Find the percentage of THC present in your cannabis:

If you purchased at a dispensary then take a look at the label to find the percentage of THC. In this example let’s just say that we know that the cannabis has 15.9% THC.

*Calculate total amount of THC in 1 gram:

1 gram of this cannabis will contain 159 mg of THC (1000 mg in 1 gram X 15.9%) = 159 mg of THC

*Calculate total amount of THC in your total weight of cannabis:

I have 3.5 mg of this cannabis that I am using to make cannabutter so the total amount of THC in the batch would be

556.5 mg of THC (159 mg X 3.5 gm of material = 556.5).

*Calculate amount of THC/CBD in your cannabutter:

If I use 1 cup of butter or coconut oil to make my cannabutter then 1 cup will have 556.5 mg of THC.

There are 16 tablespoons or 48 teaspoons in 1 cup of butter.

Each tablespoon of butter would have 35 mg of THC  (556.5 divided by 16 = 34.8).

Each teaspoon of butter would have 12 mg of THC (556.6 divided by 48 = 11.6).

*Decide on the dose per item:

If I want 5 mg of THC per item and this recipe makes 12 then I would want to have 60 mg of THC total (5 mg X 12 items = 60 mg).

If my cannabutter contains 12 mg per teaspoon then I need to use  5 teaspoons in this recipe to get a dosage of 5 mg per energy bite. (60 mg total in recipe divided by 12 mg per teaspoon = 5 teaspoons).

There are also online calculators that you can use to determine the amount of THC/CBD in your cannabutter. You would just need to know the percentage of THC or CBD in your cannabis and how much butter/oil you are adding it too in order to calculate the total. Then you can easily break it down to find out how much per tablespoon or teaspoon.

Personally I prefer to replace some of the oil/butter in a recipe with my cannabutter. I stick with consistent, low doses to get the desired effect I need.

ALWAYS LABEL YOUR CANNABIS CONTAINING FOOD ITEMS:

Once your are done creating your cannabis edible do not forget to clearly mark the container so it is not confused with a non cannabis containing food item. Nothing would be worse then having someone get into your medicine and end up taking too much.
