Weed pills are basically edible capsules that are filled with some kind of weed product that has been combined with oil to aid in absorption by the body’s endocannabinoid system. Due to the fact that they are discreet, easily ingested, and don’t require smoking of plant matter, many enthusiasts have turned to weed pills as a very convenient option for getting high. If your local dispensary doesn’t carry these types of products, fret not as they can be easily recreated in the comfort of your own home.
Marijuana flower or kief from your favorite strain (to be finely ground)
Vegetable or coconut oil
Slow cooker or a saucepan
Empty gelatin capsules
A syringe for filling the capsules
The first thing you’ll want to do is decarboxylate the weed that you will be using. This process is required in order to convert the non-psychoactive cannabinoid THCA into the THC that will actually get you high. You can also make a non-psychoactive version of these weed pills by skipping this step. While you won’t get high from the end result, enthusiasts will still enjoy the benefits of THCA like reduction in pain, soothing of inflammation, and restoring of one’s appetite.
You can begin decarbing the weed and prepare the cannabis oil that will go inside the capsules by combining both ingredients in your slow cooker or saucepan, and place on low or warm heat for about for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally if you are using a slow cooker or for at least 3 hours in saucepan, stirring frequently and making sure that the oil’s temperature never exceeds 245°F otherwise you may end up ruining your mix. Once done, strain the oil through the cheesecloth so that any remaining solid plant material can be removed.
When you are done making your weed oil, take your syringe and begin filling the capsules with your mix. If you ended up using coconut oil as your base, you can put the it in the freezer for a few minutes to help solidify the oil and make it easier to close off the capsules without making too much of a mess. One of the more attractive aspects of using weed pills is that you are able to control their potency by measuring out how much oil will go into each capsule. By deciding how much oil mix to put in the capsules you’ll be able to calculate the dosage per pill so you can have capsules of varying strength from a single batch of oil.
Finally, carefully place the caps on your capsules and store them in the fridge to keep them fresh. Now that your weed pills are ready, you can enjoy at your leisure though we do suggest that you try them them in the privacy of your home at first to get a good feel on how they will end up affecting you as the high can sometimes be a little too strong for going out in public.
