Ask a Stoner: Can I Melt Chocolate Edibles Into Something Else?

February 23, 2018   ·   0 Comments

Dear Stoner: My friend got me some fine chocolate edibles for my birthday. Can I microwave them and mix them with milk, or would it take all of the THC away?

Dear Madison: The chemical structure of THC and other cannabinoids found in cannabis begins to change when exposed to heat and starts to deteriorate the higher the temperature gets. That said, THC doesn’t see significant destruction until around 300 degrees Fahrenheit, according to multiple studies on the cannabinoid, and most microwaves don’t get liquids much hotter than 200 degrees on their high settings. But microwaves also heat liquids unevenly, so you can expect some THC to be compromised and some chocolate to get burnt and sticky.

Melting chocolate? Prepare to get messy.

Coda Signature makes delicious hot chocolate packs infused with 100 milligrams of THC, and you can always make your own by infusing whole milk with a spice ball full of buds on your stovetop. My advice would be to try either of those two routes before microwaving any expensive treats you got for your birthday.
