Infused Edible Spreads
Spreads used on breads, crackers, and other semi-bland foods can enhance their flavor and texture, giving food a new appeal that wasn’t there before.
If you’ve ever eaten a piece of freshly baked bread with a chunk of melting butter on top, you’ve experienced a little slice of heaven. Spreads used on breads, crackers, and other semi-bland foods can enhance their flavor and texture, giving food a new appeal that wasn’t there before.
From flavored butters and jams to spreadable cheeses, cannabis can be infused into nearly any kind of spread you can think of. They’re becoming popular as the market grows, since they’re easy to eat and can be quite delicious when spread on top of your favorite foods. Think of infused cream cheese on a celery stick, or infused garlic and chive cheese on a cracker. How about some infused hazelnut-chocolate on top of a donut that’s straight from the oven? The possibilities are endless with spreads. You can even take a classic and infuse it, like your typical peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Like many other cannabis edibles, spreads being sold are typically different depending on the dispensary you’re visiting. It can be a fun venture to visit all your local dispensaries and try all the spreads that appeal to you, but not all at once of course. Always take caution when eating an infused spread since it’s easy to overdo it when slathering it on a piece of bread or cracker.
Keep in mind that edible enthusiasts have reported that the effects often endure longer when eating cannabis than smoking or vaping it and can last anywhere between two and six hours. Effects might be more intense than smoking or vaping as well. Always check the THC and CBD levels of your spread and stick to the suggested serving size.
