    5 Baked Recipes You Need to Try Using Forbidden Fruit Delta-8 THC Flower

    Forbidden Fruit is one of the most sought-after strains in the world, thanks to its indica-dominant effects, potency and intensely satisfying flavor.  While smoking or vaping the flower is the common way to go, you don’t want to miss out on some tasty homemade edibles with this strain – especially Gas Forbidden Fruit Delta-8 THC Flower, which takes your recipes to the next level with fresh, organically grown flower buds infused with our signature delta-8 THC distillate.

    Making Your Cannabutter

    Before you can start baking with our flower, you’ll need to infuse it in butter to make “cannabutter,” which keeps chunks of flower buds out of your teeth and ensures that each and every bite gives you a consistent amount of those magnificent cannabinoids and terpenes.  To make cannabutter, measure 2 cups of flower buds and sprinkle them evenly onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake the buds at 250 degrees for 25 minutes to activate them through decarboxylation.

    Then, give the buds a coarse grind and stick them into a small saucepan along with two sticks of unsalted butter (vegan butter works, too) and a cup of water.  Simmer this mixture on low for 2 and half hours, without letting it reach a boil.  Finally, strain the butter into a jar and refrigerate.  When left refrigerated, your butter can last for up to 6 months. 

    Now, let’s get to the recipes!
