Step by Step Guide to Homegrown Cannabis
For those who are interested in cultivating their own cannabis, there are several DIY approaches that you can adopt. Before you dive in, it’s essential to know the basic requirements for the cannabis plant: light, temperature, nutrition, and air quality. They are as critical as the seeds themselves.
To start your journey in cannabis farming, first, choose the right seeds from a seleceted strain. There’s a wide variety of strains available in the cannabis space that differ greatly in terms of effects and flavor profile. Here is an excellent resource for choosing the right seeds.
Making DIY Cannabis-Infused Products
Once you have nurtured your self-grown cannabis plants to fruition, you can take it a step further by experimenting with these plants in the kitchen. Making edibles or cannabis-infused food items at home is easier than you may have thought.
You can start by making cannabutter, a primary ingredient in most cannabis-infused recipes. To make it, melt unsalted butter in a pan and add some ground cannabis once it’s melted. Let it simmer for a couple of hours before straining out the plant material. Now, the cannabutter is ready to be used for cooking!
Cannabis Topicals DIY
You can also use homegrown cannabis to make DIY topical products like lotions and balms. These products can help alleviate localized pain, irritation, or inflammation.
Start by decarboxylating your cannabis, which is a process that activates its beneficial compounds. Afterward, mix it with carrier oils like coconut or sweet almond oil and let it slow cook for a few hours. Once done, strain the mixture and let it cool to room temperature. Now, you have DIY cannabis-infused oil that can be mixed with beeswax to make a soothing balm.
Remember, DIY is about personalizing and understanding what your needs are. By cultivating and creating your own cannabis products, you can control quality, ingredients, and dosage, ensuring you get the best out of your cannabis experience. Valley Wellness is continuously here to support and guide you in your cannabis journey.
