Makes: 8 servings
Duration: 1 hour and 20 minutes
- 1 box of Oreo cookies
- 1 ½ cups of heavy whipping cream
- ½ cup of cannabutter (room temperature)
- ½ cup of powdered sugar
- ½ cup of white sugar
- 16 ounces of cream cheese
- 8 ounces of dark chocolate
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Pie pan
- Large mixing bowl
- Electric hand mixer
- Rolling pin
- Freezer baggie
Add the cookies to a large freezer bag and use a rolling pin to reduce them to crumbs.
Place the cookie crumbs and cannabutter into a pie pan and use a spatula to pack them down into a crust.
Refrigerate the cookie crust while you prepare the filling.
Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl except for the dark chocolate which will need to be melted in a heat-safe dish in 30-second intervals until liquified.
Now pour the freshly warmed chocolate sauce in with the rest of the cheesecake recipe ingredients and blend them together on high using an electric mixer.
Once the ingredients have thickened and begin to form soft peaks, pour it into the semi-hardened cookie crust.
Refrigerate the cannabis infused cheesecake for at least 1 hour before serving. If you don’t plan on eating it within the next 48 hours, then place it in the freezer instead, where it will last up to 1 month.
How long do edibles last?
Cannabis edibles are much different than your average weed products, but that is mostly because it can be difficult to tell exactly how much you are consuming, and they are often more concentrated than a bong bowl or joint. The other important thing to remember is that they are absorbed differently so while the effects remain similar, it can take much longer to feel the effects.
After consuming marijuana edibles, it can take up to 2 full hours for them to kick in, and the results can continue to last for up to 12 hours after the initial ingestion. Hence the reason why it is so important to take it slow, and proceed with caution when taking edibles, as a bad experience can last much longer than taking a few extra puffs of a joint.
