CBD Shake to Make Shake Flour
While h\’\’andling hemp buds and flowers, there are often small pieces that break off called “shake”. Shake flour is the result of grinding these small pieces into a fine powder. The pieces must be extremely dry to prevent mold or mildew from forming.
Once the hemp shake flour is created, it can be used to create a wide assortment of edibles such as brownies, breads, cookies, cakes and used in salves.
Shake flour is used in baking just like regular flour. Take care that no stems or seeds fall into the shake because they will create a bitter taste.
Any modern-day grinder will do the job, or you can use a more manual form of grinding such as an old stone mortar. Users are concerned about dosage so what you can do is mix a specific measured amount of hemp shake with regular flour. Then divide the amount of hemp shake used by the number of edibles created. The baked goods must be baked at a temperature exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit so that the cannabinoids in the hemp shake flour will not be destroyed.
