Not at all. I was surprised by how simple the process is. You can make edibles by using cannabis or by using THC oil, tinctures, or isolates. Generally, all you need to get an edible is to mix one of those into whatever recipe you’re making. So, making weed brownies isn’t much more complicated than making regular ones.
At least that’s the case when using oil, tinctures, or isolates. If you are using cannabis, you’ll need to decarboxylate it first, then make sure the leaves don’t burn during the cooking process, which adds extra steps. But ultimately, the difficulty of making an edible will depend on what you are trying to make. It’s much easier to make THC chocolate bars than to try to make your own delta 8 hard candy, for example. For more complex edibles, you’re usually better off getting them from Vida Optima or some other similar brand.
