Get High on Scaling
Is 1 cup of flour equal to 3 fingers of weed? Measuring by weight is the only way to bake certainly.
The sweetest of sciences, baking relies on accurate measurements.

In the cannabis kitchen, even the stonedest stoner who’s ever bought a gram, ounce or kilo knows the importance of weight. When making edibles with precious pot, precision is prime, whether you’re measuring flower or flour.
“The scale is the most import piece of equipment in the cannabis kitchen,” said Corren Carroll, the San Francisco cannabis chef who co-authored “Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen,” a micro-dosed cookbook that drops in November. “There is no way to properly dose out edibles without a scale.”
