Lecithin: Add This To Your Edibles

1 min

Lecithin is the new must-have ingredient to add to your homemade edibles recipe! This substance found in egg yolks is known to produce more concentrated edibles with more intense highs! Find out more about lecithin below.

Are you looking for something to increase your high while consuming edibles? Lecithin may be the solution to your problem!


Lecithin is a natural additive, a term designating a variety of fatty compounds found both in the cells and tissues of various animals and plants.

Lecithin is important because it acts as an excellent emulsifier since it is amphiphilic - attracting both water and fatty substances. If water and oil are mixed together, the oil appears to evenly disperse in the water, but this is only a temporary reaction. When lecithin is added to the mix, it breaks down the fat into smaller particles, becoming an emulsifying agent that makes substances easier to digest.


Combine THC with Fat And Blend With Water

By aiding with digestion, lecithin makes the perfect addition to edibles, allowing them to assimilate into the body easier and metabolise. When lecithin, in the form of soy or sunflower, is infused into edibles during the cooking process, it helps lock in cannabis’ psychoactive cannabinoids by mixing THC with fat and blending the fat and water together.

Lecithin is naturally found in egg yolks, which is why it may not be necessary to add additional emulsifiers to your edibles after infusing it. If you are preparing a vegan recipe or just cooking without eggs, you can add soy or sunflower lecithin to achieve more potent outcomes. Non-lecithin edibles, however, culminate in shorter and slightly less intense psychoactive effects.

Using lecithin in your recipes does not increase the level of THC, but it allows for maximum use of cannabinoids, making the finished product more powerful. In this vein, it is possible to use less cannabis to achieve comparably higher results.


If you are inexperienced with using lecithin, it is thankfully very easy to find online or at your local natural store. On Amazon and Ebay, it is possible to locate lecithin both in powder and liquid form.

There is a whole discussion concerning which type of lecithin is better to use. Soy lecithin tends to be more processed and modified. Often, harsh chemicals are used to extract the compound from the beans. Sunflower lecithin, on the other hand, is harvested using a mechanical process and no chemicals.

If you are unsure about which option to choose, it is recommended to start off with sunflower lecithin or conduct further research online.


Edibles - Consuming Cannabis

Lecithin is a natural way to enhance your edibles! What’s more, it sustains many benefits on the body as well. Lecithin is even reported to help in lowering cholesterol levels.
