How to Make Infused Store-Bought Chips

Whether it’s game day, a rainy day, or just Tuesday, we know that a crunchy snack like chips can bring you comfort while pairing perfectly with a delicious sandwich. 

Did you know that infusing store-bought chips can be done pretty painlessly using the power of Ardent technology? Here’s how:

How to Get Started

The base of these infused recipes is a cannabis infused oil. For these recipes, you can choose to infuse a more neutral oil like grapeseed oil, or use something more flavorful like our Tuscan Herb EVOO, or even coconut oil for sweet snacks.

To make infused oil, just start by decarboxylating your flower, concentrate, kief, trim, etc. inside the Ardent Nova or Ardent FX. In the Nova, place the material inside the inner canister, close it up, and press the single button interface. Once the light returns back to green, your material is ready for infusion. In the FX, place the material inside the inner canister, close it up, and press the A1 setting for THC or CBG rich material, or the A2 setting for CBD rich material. Once the light returns back to green, your material is ready for infusion. 

To infuse, pour your infusion medium over the activated material, fully submerging it. Use the Concentrate and Infusion Sleeve or an unlidded Vessel inside the device to make cleanup ultra easy. Press the Nova’s single button interface or start the FX’s Infuse cycle. Strain using the Ardent Frainer, Infusion Press, a cheesecloth, or a standard kitchen strainer.

Dosing

In this recipe, it’s nearly impossible to get every single piece dosed in the same way. Our advice, if you’re strict on dosage, is to half, third, or quarter this recipe into smaller batches to control the dose over your entire snacking portion.
