Our Maui Wowie HHC Flower can be used to create delicious baked goods, including sweet and savory favorites. So, if you need a little help in the inspiration department, we’ve come with some awesome recipes to try.
Making Your Cannabutter
Before you can make homemade edibles with our Maui Wowie flower, you’re going to need to create the cannabutter, which, luckily, is a simple process. First, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Now, lay 2 cups of raw flower buds evenly on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes to decarboxylate, or activate, the compounds in the flower.
Afterward, give the buds a nice coarse grind and throw them into a saucepan along with 2 sticks of unsalted butter and 1 cup of water. Bring to a simmer without letting it reach a boil, and simmer for 2 and a half hours. Strain the newly infused butter into a jar and refrigerate. This butter can last for up to 6 months refrigerated.
Now, let’s get to the recipes!
