Step #1: Decarb Your Cannabis
De-what? Decarb! You may have seen, tasted, or heard that you can just sprinkle your weed into any old dish and voila! It’s an edible.
I’m here to tell you that that is not the way! (sorry,not sorry)
You have to decarb your weed first.
Decarbing or decarboxylation in it’s simplist terms, means to heat your weed.
Basically, you’ll be putting your ground up ganja on a cookie sheet, in the oven, for a certain amount of time (we recommend 45 minutes at 240 F).
Why? It’s because cannabis in its raw state isn’t psychoactive. It is the process of decarboxylation that converts and activates cannabinoids to elicit a high.
It’s the most crucial step in the cooking process as a miss-step will result in a less potent, benign edible.
If you decide to skip it or forget it and you’ll have a weak product that lacks the active cannabinoids.
Here’s How to Decarb Weed:
Step #2: Make Cannabutter!

Step #3: Baked Apple Roses With Cannabis Recipe
Servings: 4 people
- 1/2 pkg Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
- 2 Red Apples Golden Delicious are great
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1-2 tbsp all-purpose flour to sprinkle on your countertop
- 3-5 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 3-5 tbsp cannabutter melted and used to brush overtop
- 2 tbsp sugar to sprinkle on top
Thaw the puff pastry at room temperature.
Grab your mixing bowl half filled with water and the lemon juice.Cut the apples in paper-thin slices. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses. Place the sliced apples in the bowl so that they won’t change color.
Microwave the apples in the bowl for about 3-minutes. If they break, you’ll need to soften them a little more until they don’t. Just don’t overcook them, they’ll dry out. Set aside.
Unwrap the puff pastry over a clean and lightly floured counter. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough into a rectangular shape of about 12 x 9 inches.Then, using a pizza roller, cut the dough in 6 strips, each about 2 x 9 inches.
Preheat the oven to 375 F and then drain the apples.
Melt your cannabutter and cinnamon in the microwave (or on the stove) for a few minutes tops. Set aside.
Arrange the apple slices on the dough, overlapping one another so that they are all in a row, and look almost like a fan. Make sure the top (skin side) of the slices sticks a little out of the strip. Using your pastry brush, brush the apple parts that are inside the dough, not the tips.
Fold up the bottom of the dough, like you are tucking them into bed.
Starting from the left end of the dough, gently tuck in the apples while you roll to the right. Make sure all apples are in place, and don’t move.
Seal the edges with your fingers so everything is tucked in nicely. No gaps in the dough.
Do the same as above for the remaining five roses. Note: you may need more cannabutter & cinnamon mix. Repeat in microwave as above.
Spray each muffin tin with cooking spray/non stick spray. If it’s a silicone muffin tray, you don’t need to, but it wouldn’t hurt just in case.
Then, sprinkle any cinnamon or sugar you have on top of each rose.
Bake at 375 F for about 40-45 minutes. Make sure the pastry is cooked all the way through!Eat while warm and enjoy!
