You Are Not Getting a "Good Deal" on Edibles at a Dispensary

(Edited)

This post was inspired by a friend bragging to me about his extremely large $125 order of THC Cookies... He had 1 Dozen Cookies ROFL!!!

If you can cook chocolate chip cookies at a lower than usual temperature, I have news for you. You're an Expert Cannabis Chef. The only real trick to cooking with THC, or CBD for that matter, is activating it and that happens around 20 to 27 minutes according to this 1990s grapgh. This is common knowledge and being abused by dispensaries to mark up product cost to INSANE prices over 600% the value of the product. I love venture capitalism, but I love being an educated consumer equally as much.


Most recipes bake in the time frames on this graph from https://wakeandbake.co/decarboxylating-cannabis-to-activate-thc/


The cost of cannabis extract, which saves you having to filter the plant material out, can be as low as $20-25 per gram in Canada, which would only add a cost of about $2 per cookie, when baking a dozen.

2 Grams of extract in a 12 cookie recipe will get you the average dispensary potency of 100-200mg per cookie.

This Cost of a Cookie Article demonstrates that the cost of a professional baker can be as low as $0.21. So this would equate to a homemade cost of about $4.20 per cookie with a minimum of 100mg in it due to potential uneven mixing of the dough before baking.


Now that we have covered the common knowledge of the sitation, I ask you to go to a local dispensary and post the prices you see in the store for baked goods with THC content of approximately 100-200mg. This could prove to be an interesting market study on Hive and I will revisit this topic if it gets a high interaction rate. Online dispensaries are also accepted for review here.

In Canada the legal single size serving limit is 10mg THC - high tolerance users would get a sugar rush and an empty wallet before a cannabis buzz lol.

I guess first nations dispensaries get special privileges like being about to pick the dose in the cookie.

Here in California a 100mg cookie will set you back at 10-20$. Before legalization I was able to get a 500mg cookie for 15-20$.

As I suspected, the local bakers have been undermined by the industry of greed profiteers.

Oh dude and don’t get me started on mislabeling. So many times a product that is 10-70mg less then what the edible is! This happens a lot. Heck sometimes the mg will even be more then what is listed.

Then you have companies that will spray on oil instead of infusion. There are just so many bad things people need to know when buying edibles. What I always tell people if there are to buy from the club, is first find out if it’s infused, then buy from a trusted company. Sometimes trial and error is a way to find out if an edible is right for you. But unfortunately it will also cost $$.

I have found that you can use a syringe and insert the THC honey oil style extract directly into each cookie or unit, its painstaking but accurate.

I completely agree. Paying over $10 per cookie better have like 400mg of thc in it

That's a lot more reasonable than most, but probably has less than 100mg if I had to guess.

Just to let you know this chart is for an experiment using hexane as a solvent, not cookie batter.

It is a decarboxylation graph which indicates the peak time v temp, however what I do is go off another chart where someone did analysis on samples gathered at certain time points during decarboxylation of both hash and trim.

https://ardentcannabis.com/blog/decarboxylation-myths/

This article actually references this exact chart and explains a little more.

Enjoy :)!

Whoever wrote this article couldnt handle cooking dinner for more than themselves lol, claiming to be overwhelmed by normal baking supplies. I wonder how one would bake without the supplies listed to be overwhelming.

So after you buy the Nova product from Ardent, what you magically dont need any baking supplies?

I have used this graph, the one they cast doubt on, as a guide for baking with THC as a general temperature rule of thumb, you would obviously need to be capable of some basically preparation to be able to cook in your home.

It's a waste of time to decarb in butter and filter the herb out, I just put the extract right into the butter and then after 45 minutes its decarboxylated and ready to be cooked under 350°F.
