    Hey everyone, just wanted to start off here at grasscity by sharing my own recipe on firecrackers for everyone to enjoy! The reason I love firecrackers are because they are quick and easy to make, you don't need much weed and they get you so baked for the whole damn day!

    Anyway here is my recipe, I have written this mostly by myself - I originally started with this recipe and have modified it according to my experiences with each new version of firecracker, don't ask me why some steps are weird haha, i wrote most of this while I was stoned, but who cares as long it works, right!?

    OK, here goes - and any criticism/questions or thanks are appreciated

    What you need:
    • 0.5g weed per cracker (you can always eat more)
    • Tasty crackers, I usually use Ritz or Jacobs
    • High fat Peanut butter (can be substituted with Nutella/Chocolate spread)
    • Something small to mix your weed & peanut butter (I use toothpicks)
    • Enough aluminum foil to cover your crackers + optional extra
    • An oven (duh!?) I use the grill on mine.
    Please check the notes at the bottom of the recipe also!

    Steps: (Part 1: baking your marijuana): why?

    • Pre-heat oven to 120c or 250f, wait 10 minutes for it to heat up.
    • What I do while waiting is make a small kind of bowl for my marijuana out of the "optional extra" aluminum foil so that it is easier to collect/check my weed after it has been through the oven.

    • Put the weed in the oven, and set the timer for 15 minutes, that should be enough. You can tell if you pinch your nugs and they fall apart into dust that you are perfect. Now keep your weed to the side for one moment.


    Steps: (Part 2: baking your firecrackers)

    • Technically this part is named wrong but meh... it sounds better. Anyway set your oven to 150c or 300f and wait till it heats up... should be 10-15 mins.
    • This time while you wait, spread ONE side of EACH cracker with peanut butter, quite thickly, 0.5-1cm thick is ideal.
    • Evenly "sprinkle" your weed on half of the peanut crackers, as the other half will be used to sandwich your pot. Then using your mixing tool, carefully mix as well as possible the marijuana and peanut butter making sure as much surface area as possible comes into contact with the peanut butter. Take your time if you must, better safe than sorry.
    • Sandwich the remaining peanut butter crackers to the ones containing weed and give them a gentle squish together. Then completely wrap in aluminum foil, I wrap them in 1 layer, sometimes 2 but I wonder if more layers would affect the heat reaching the crackers?
    • Put them in the oven and set the timer for 20 minutes.
    • After 20 minutes, crank the heat up to 180c or 350f and set the timer for another two minutes, don't ask why I do this lol I really have no idea why I came up with this, I think it was from reading other recipes which had much higher temperatures or something?
    • Wait till the crackers cool down a little then ENJOY!

    Check these pics out too!

    • 1st time with firecrackers I recommend 1g of weed, also personally I have never noticed smoking tolerance effect my high with firecrackers - its always mind blowing!
    • I use 0.5g per cracker as a guideline for good quality herb, but any quality can be used and is sometimes recommended!
    • Natural peanut butter seems to contain the most fat, if in doubt just mix your PB with some butter before adding it to crackers. The more fat the better, as this is what absorbs the THC and is digested by you.
    • My oven has a fan, and instructions tell me to set 20c (70f) below advertised temperatures, check yours.
    • Aluminum foil is used to stop the crackers burning, they taste like shit when that happens so foil is a must.
    • THC has a boiling point of 200c or 392f
    • c= Celsius and f= Fahrenheit here obviously
    • It may take 45-90 minutes before you start feeling high DO NOT EAT TOO MUCH or you might be sick and trust me its not worth it!
    The question most likely to be asked is why bake the weed? Long answer short; I'm not sure. But I definitely notice an increase in potency when smoked or eaten after being "baked" Although baking takes away most of the smell, some taste still lingers and the added strength certainly makes up for the loss. I read somewhere that the baking process converts most of the left over alkaloids to "usable" THC and THCV, which I'm guessing would mostly apply to fresher buds that haven't completely dried yet?

    Anyway guys have fun this is a must try even if you are skeptical you have to try you wont be disappointed.

    Please post your experiences, I'd love to hear them! :hello:

  2. great post man +rep. I haven't tried firecrackers yet but when I do I'll most likely use your method :p I just haven't had enough weed for this lately though and I'm kinda skeptical to waste a whole gram ya know? Maybe I should get some regular and try it with that... How much does the quality of the weed make a difference?

    I dont have much experience with med/low quality because I only buy high, but my friend sometimes comes round and we use his which I would say is low-mid ish and we just add about 0.7g to each firecracker and 2 each still get us reasonably high, always helps to bake it especially if its fresh or a little moist.

    I was sceptical too when I first tried it with blue cheese (sill remains my favourite strain) but I just said fuck it, piled on £45 worth of buds for me and a friend and it was the most high I have ever been!
  4. how long do they take to hit you?
  5. 45-90 minutes is about right.
  6. +rep im gona try this
  7. Please post your experience and dosage when you do :hello:
  8. I think with that prebake step that you'll end up lowering the potency of the marijuana that you're using. See just sitting in an oven at 350 is plenty hot enough to vaporize many of the active chemicals in the marijuana so if it's not in a carrier to decarboxylate by this point then all of those cannabinoids will be released into the air and will not be eaten by you
  9. Uhmmmm.... I said prebake the weed at 250f?? Read the thread again.
  10. uhmm no man I remember it saying 350F. :rolleyes:

    Plus this is your first post:

    No I would never bake the weed and never have baked it at 350 that is stupid, thats why I only go up to 350f for 2 mins at the end of the recipe... Why bother arguing ive never said 350f wtf??
    I have edited my post atleast 15 times to remove typos and improve the layout, but the original recipe I have was already written in notepad and it says 250f for prebake and 350 for 2 mins at end when you are nearly done.

    Anyway its up to you, this works for me I'm just sharing my knowledge if you dont wanna try then thats fine.
  12. I'm gonna try these I hope they work if not im gonna be pissed:devious: lol

    Why bake the weed before hand? Last time I did it we put it on the cracker and then baked it
  13. sounds tasty but with all that heat seems like the thc would be gone. He did say prebake the weed in the first part at 250 tho. then bake it again with the peanut butter at 350
  14. Thats what sounds weird to me idk if that would destroy all the thc, I've heard great things about edibles and I've always been skeptical cause my first firecrackers didn't work and I really don't have the weed to spare

  15. As I said with the 350 Im not sure why I did that but it works, I think it was while I was stoned looking through some recipes and some say heat firecrackers at 370/380f and some say heat at 280/300f so I thought I'll chose the middle. Then I thought maybe higher heat does give the crackers something extra, so 2 mins on 350f will give them the best of both :p I figured as the crackers and PB was wrapped in aluminium, 2 minutes wouldnt be enough to lose any noticable amount of THC.
  16. A bit contradictory? No need to get offended though man I was just pointing out that I did see 350f and that you had just edited your post :p I will probably try this with some regular when I have a little cash to waste ;)
  17. I am confused :confused: I said I dont prebake the weed at 350, and if you read the last post on 1st page it explains why I went to 350 for a few mins :D
  18. I made these with peanut butter, put it in the oven at 200F because I was scared to put too much heat. More is better, as long as its below 392F, trust me. I ate a gram of weed and it didn't even get me high at all. :(
  19. Did you follow my recipe or was this from somewhere else, and did you prebake the weed?
  20. How keyed can you get off one cracker with about a gram of med bud?
