From Infusions to Edibles: Mastering Cannabis Recipes with Spyglass Wellness


The Basics of Cannabis Cooking


The integration of cannabis into culinary arts has revolutionized not just the world of wellness but also the realm of gastronomy. With the diverse range of products offered by Spyglass Wellness, incorporating cannabinoids like THCV, D8THC, CBN, and CBC into your cooking has never been easier or more exciting. This article will guide you through mastering cannabis recipes, from simple infusions to sophisticated edibles, using Spyglass Wellness's premium products.


The Basics of Cannabis Cooking

Before diving into recipes, it's essential to understand the basics of cooking with cannabis. The process typically begins with decarboxylation, a method of heating cannabis to activate the cannabinoids. However, with Spyglass Wellness's range of tinctures, gummies, and sprays, this step is conveniently bypassed, as their products are ready to infuse directly into your culinary creations.


Understanding the fundamentals of cooking with cannabis is crucial for any aspiring cannabis chef. Spyglass Wellness products simplify the process, allowing for easy integration into your favorite recipes.


  • Decarboxylation: Typically, raw cannabis must be heated to activate cannabinoids. However, Spyglass Wellness tinctures are already activated, ready for use.

  • Fat Solubility: Cannabinoids dissolve in fats, making oils and butters excellent infusion mediums. Spyglass Wellness tinctures blend seamlessly into these bases.

  • Dosage Control: Start with low doses to gauge potency. Spyglass Wellness products clearly list cannabinoid content, aiding in precise dosage measurements.


Choosing the Right Product

Selecting the right Spyglass Wellness product for your recipe depends on the desired effects. There are higher and lower strength options and many different cannabinoids to choose from. For a creative boost, high-strength THCV products like the THCV Dual-Action Spray and Tincture can be ideal. If relaxation is the goal, consider the D8THC Microdose Spray or the D8THC Gummies for a milder, controlled effect. Learn more about different strengths and cannabinoids here.


Understanding Dosages

Dosage is paramount in cannabis cooking. Starting with a small dose and gradually increasing it to achieve the desired effect is advisable. Spyglass Wellness products clearly label the cannabinoid content, making it easier to manage dosages and ensure a pleasant experience.

Infusing Oils and Butters

One of the foundational techniques in cannabis cooking is infusing oils or butters, which can then be used in a variety of recipes. Using Spyglass Wellness tinctures, like the CBC Tincture or Dual-Action products, you can effortlessly create infused oils. Simply mix your chosen tincture with a carrier oil, such as coconut or olive oil, and let it sit for a few hours. This infused oil can then be used in dressings, sautéing, or baking.


Recipe Example: Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil


Instructions: Warm the olive oil over low heat and stir in the desired dose of D8THC tincture. Allow the mixture to blend for a few minutes, then cool. Use this infused oil in dressings, marinades, or as a drizzle over finished dishes.


Decadent Cannabis Desserts

Desserts are a delightful way to incorporate cannabis into your diet. For instance, the D9THC Gummies can be chopped and mixed into brownie batter to create infused brownies. Alternatively, the CBN Microdose Spray can be added to your favorite cookie or brownie batter for a relaxing nighttime treat.


Desserts offer a delightful way to enjoy cannabis, with options ranging from baked goods to frozen treats. Spyglass Wellness gummies and tinctures can easily be incorporated into sweet recipes.


  • Melting and Mixing: Spyglass Wellness infusions mix easily, perfect for incorporating into chocolate or candy recipes.

  • Baking: Microdose sprays and tinctures can be added to cake, cookie, or brownie batters for an evenly distributed cannabinoid content.

  • No-Bake Options: For simpler, no-heat recipes, tinctures can be mixed into frostings, whipped cream, or puddings.

Savory Delights

Cannabis can also elevate savory dishes. A few sprays of the CBG Microdose can add a wellness boost to soups or stews. For a more direct approach, the D8THC Tincture can be drizzled over finished dishes like pasta or pizza, adding a subtle yet impactful layer of flavor and effect.


Cannabis infusions can elevate savory dishes from ordinary to extraordinary, adding depth and wellness benefits to each bite.


  • Sprays and Tinctures: Ideal for finishing dishes or incorporating into sauces and dressings.

  • Infused Oils: Use your cannabis-infused oils in sautéing, roasting, or as bases for dressings and marinades.

  • Direct Application: Some dishes benefit from the direct application of tinctures or sprays, adding a distinctive flavor and effect.

Refreshing Cannabis Beverages

Cannabis-infused beverages offer a refreshing and discreet way to enjoy the plant's benefits. The THCV Microdose Spray can be added to morning coffee or smoothies for an energizing start to the day. For a relaxing evening drink, the CBN Tincture can be mixed into herbal teas or warm milk.
