This class will teach you how to properly infuse food products with THC/ cannabis. This class is hands-on where you will be able to see a live demonstration of infusion into food based products (honey, oil, and butter). In this 4 hour class we will walk you through each process of a clean non-plant based infusion process. By not using the actual cannabis plant to infuse your product directly you avert pesticide, fungus, and heavy metal contamination.
