Ask Ed: Grow Tip – Marijuana Capsules

You can make marijuana capsules from your trim material. They are a good way to ingest marijuana without having to eat “the brownie.”

You can purchase capsules at your local health food store; buy the size most convenient for you to use. I prefer smaller caps because you can always take another one if you aren’t feeling the effects enough and it may be uncomfortable if you ingest too much.

Start by heating trim in an oven or microwave until it is crispy. Next, grind it up. A coffee grinder does a good job. After the blades spin let the dust settle before you open it. Gently move the powder into a bowl and add enough olive oil to it until it has the consistency of cookie dough. Fill the bottom of the capsule using your gloved hand and then cover it with the top half. The caps are ready to enjoy. Try one first.

You can store them for months in the refrigerator.

WARNING: If you are a vegetarian or a vegan, check the label first. Some capsules are made with gelatin, which comes from cows.
