A cannabis edible, also known as a cannabis-infused food or simply an edible in california, is a food product that contains cannabinoids, especially tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Although edible may refer to either a food or a drink, a cannabis-infused drink may be referred to more specifically as a liquid edible or drinkable.
Most edibles contain a significant amount of THC, which can induce a wide range of effects, including relaxation, euphoria, increased appetite, fatigue, and anxiety. THC-dominant edibles are consumed for recreational and medical purposes. Some edibles contain a negligible amount of THC and are instead dominant in other cannabinoids, most commonly cannabidiol (CBD). These edibles are primarily used for medical purposes only
Foods and beverages made from non-psychoactive cannabis products are known as hemp foods
Edibles in California
The earliest recorded cannabis-infused food was in the Indian subcontinent, where people have prepared food and drink with bhang for millennia, for both spiritual and medicinal purposes. The oil-solubility of cannabis extracts was also known to ancient Indians, with Sanskrit recipes requiring cannabis to be sautéed in ghee before mixing it with other ingredients.
Bhang has been used in food and drink as early as 1,000 BCE by Hindus in the Indian subcontinent. Bhang is traditionally distributed during the Hindu spring festival of Holi.
Modern interest in cannabis-infused food is credited to the publication of The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book. Toklas included a recipe for “haschisch fudge”, which was contributed by artist and friend Brion Gysin when the book was published in 1954. Although it was omitted from the first American editions, Toklas’ name and her “brownies” became synonymous with cannabis in the growing 1960s counterculture

One form of hash oil
Cannabis tincture is an alcoholic extract of the cannabis. Because cannabis resins are soluble in alcohol, an effective way of adding them into dishes is through cooking brandy or rum infused with cannabinoids. Generally, stems and leaves of the cannabis plant are used, because they are undesirable to smoke. When infused in high-proof grain-based alcohol, such as Everclear, it becomes what is commonly known as green dragon. Creme de Gras (a play on the English “grass”, as creme de gras, translates literally as “cream of fat”) is a flavored liqueur made from cannabis. It can be added to coffee and other beverages.

Cannabis-infused butter, or cannabutter, is a cannabis-infused ingredient used in many cannabis edibles. Heating the raw cannabis in melted butter allows the cannabinoids to be extracted by the fat.
