Cannabis events are no longer big bashes where thousands gather in the same place to have fun and share in the experience. COVID-19 put a quick stop to all of that, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up your apron just yet. If edibles are your product of choice, then this is the perfect time to sign up for online cannabis cooking courses and events.

Sadly, this strange new world isn’t exactly welcoming to everyone, and that is especially true when it comes to consumers who aren’t overconfident in their ability to utilize technology. So while the trend is catching on because it’s the only option right now, some are still hesitant to give it a shot. Change can be challenging, but to help motivate those who aren’t sure, we’re going to highlight ten reasons why online edibles courses are a great idea and more than worth some getting used to.

1. Affordability

When you attend cannabis cooking classes or events in person, there is a whole lot of overhead to consider. They’ve got to hire security, pay for a venue, hire event coordinators, and so much more that is all made unnecessary with an online platform. This makes the cost to put on these events much lower, and those savings are passed on to you through the incredibly low sign up fees that are affordable.

2. Easy step by step instructions

Of course, every course or event for edibles is going to have its way of doing things. Still, the majority offer straightforward signup and login process that is carefully described through simple steps to guide consumers through the process with as much confidence as possible. Once attendees are logged on, they’ll get some of the most informative step-by-step lessons in cooking edibles so that they can achieve a similar result with ease at home.

3. Have fun

Cooking with cannabis to make edibles is a scientific process that can get serious at times. Still, most online cannabis events recognize the need to keep consumers entertained along the way, and so they aim to impress. Some will break up lessons with a bit of comedy, and others may include relatable chefs who can make you feel at ease as you take in all of the information that each session has to offer so that the whole time, you’re having fun while you learn.

4. Meet the experts

The coronavirus has gotten in the way of a lot of things over this last year, including old-school in-person cannabis events, which puts most consumers father than ever before from experts who can offer specialized insight into how to make best and enjoy cannabis edibles. Luckily, all of the professionals are still out there. They’re just staying safe like everyone else, which is why they’re taking part in so many online cannabis edibles events.

5. Learn specifics surrounding dosing

Edibles are exciting, soothing, and intoxicating, which makes dosing an essential part of an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, very few consumers understand the best dosing strategies, and this alone is an excellent reason to take in a cannabis cooking class or conference. The experts know exactly where most consumers should start their edibles journey, and through online events, they’re sharing their experiences with all of us who take the time to tune in from home.

6. Extraction techniques

Most cannabis enthusiasts learn how to make edibles using cannabutter before any other method because it’s a raw and simple process that seems to come most recommended for beginners, but it’s not always the best option. Some of the best and most delicious edibles are made using lighter, less taste altering ingredients such as cannabis-infused oil, and through online courses and classes, you’ll get to discover how to use various extraction techniques to make edibles.

7. Inspirational ideas

Cannabis edibles are often offered in the blandest and most sugar-filled forms possible, because they’re the cheapest, and therefore also the most frequently shown on both the legal and illicit markets. These provide an affordable way to start, but when you’re making your own, pot brownies and THC gummies will get old fast. Online cooking demonstrations and lessons can help to inspire you through dishes that you may never have otherwise considered infusing, opening up a whole new world of options.

8. Measuring potency

Knowing about various extraction techniques and basic dosing recommendations is an excellent start. Still, the thing with guidelines is that they’re useless if you don’t know how potent your homemade edibles are. This is an issue that many beginners run into, but it’s a problem that can be easily solved once you’ve learned how to measure or estimate cannabinoid strength. This is one of the first skills you’ll be taught through online cannabis courses, and it’s an invaluable tool.

9. It’s 100% safe

For many people, a simple trip to the grocery store for necessities is stressful enough with the threat of COVID-19 looming and the unique anxiety-inducing look of masks everywhere. Most of us have been doing our best to curb the spread, which means giving up the majority of our human interaction. Though edibles demonstrations aren’t going to replace that, they are something to enjoy that is 100% safe no matter where you reside or what your health status may be.

10. Free recording

After taking in tips and tricks, watching live Q & A sessions, cooking demonstrations, and absorbing as much of everything else as you can along the way. It’s going to be nearly impossible to maintain every single tidbit of information that was made available to you. Now, usually, this would require a camera and notepad to capture. Still, since you’ll already be online, a recording is simple, and doing so makes for an excellent resource later when you’re trying to remember what you learned.
