infused flower typically refers to cannabis flower that has been treated or coated with additional cannabinoids or terpenes. This process involves adding a concentrated form of THC, CBD, or other cannabinoids to the surface of the flower.
The goal is to enhance the potency, flavor, or effects of the cannabis. This process allows users to enjoy the benefits of the added compounds while using the flower for smoking or vaping.
Infused flower can be made in various ways, including:
- Spraying: Applying a concentrated cannabis extract (usually oil or distillate) to the surface of the flower.
- Coating: Coating the flower with a layer of kief, which is a concentrated form of trichomes (crystals) that contain cannabinoids and terpenes.
- Soaking or Dipping: Immerse the flower in a solution containing cannabinoids or terpenes, allowing the bud to absorb the infused liquid.
The primary aim of infusing flower is to create a more potent or flavorful cannabis experience, offering users an alternative way to consume cannabinoids beyond the typical flower’s natural composition.
Spraying is a method used to infuse cannabis flower with additional cannabinoids or flavorings. Here’s a basic guide to infusing flower via spraying:
Ingredients and Materials:
- Cannabis flower
- Concentrated cannabis extract (e.g., THC or CBD oil or distillate)
- Spray bottle
- Preparation: Ensure your cannabis flower is dry and clean.
- Prepare the Spray: Dilute the concentrated cannabis extract, if needed, to ensure an even and controlled application. Mix it well to guarantee an even consistency.
- Spraying: Load the diluted extract into a spray bottle. Gently and evenly spray a light mist over the surface of the cannabis flower. Hold the bottle a few inches away from the flower to distribute the extract uniformly.
- Allow to Dry: Let the sprayed flower dry and absorb the applied extract. This can take a bit of time, so be patient.
- Test and Store: After drying, test a small amount to gauge the potency and flavor. Store the infused flower in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
- Control is key in spraying to ensure an even application and avoid oversaturation.
- Start with a small test batch to determine the desired potency and flavor before spraying larger amounts of flower.
- Infused flower potency and effects will vary based on the concentration and type of extract used.
Always ensure safety and accuracy in the application process, and consider the overall potency and flavor of the infused flower when preparing and using it.
