Baking with Delta-8 THC

In addition to being easy to incorporate into your everyday meals, Delta-8 distillate is extremely easy to include into your favorite baked goods. Unlike regular cannabis, delta-8 distillate is already active, so there's no need for decarboxylation.

That means you can simply add the desired dose of D8 into your mixture with the other ingredients. We recommend starting with a lower dose at first, aiming for somewhere between 1/4-1/2 ml per 24 servings. This will result in edibles that contain about 10-20mg Delta-8 THC per serving.

When baking with delta-8 distillate, you will want to keep the oven temperature a bit lower than usual, as THC will start to degrade at temperatures above 340° degrees.

Do you need to use something like coconut oil or soy lecithin or xanthan gum to evenly distribute the distillate?
