You can infuse anything with cannabis. Seriously, we know—we’ve tried.
Fortunately for us (and you), edibles are increasing in popularity as marijuana users are moving away from the traditional weed brownies and towards creatively infusing cannabis extracts into all aspects of their cooking.
Most recipes call for cannabis butter which (mixed with fat) allows for the THC to be digested properly. It is important to note that ingesting cannabis is a much more overwhelming experience for some users and following the recipes included here may still result in improper dosage.
That being said, once you understand your dosage limits, enjoy some of these delicious, surprising and innovative cannabis recipes from The Stoner’s Cookbook.
Get high in class—Marijuana Lobster Rolls
This recipe calls for cannabis-infused mayo that comes from oil extract. It is as simple as building a lobster roll and using the cannabis mayo to complete the dish. This is one of the many easy recipes from the Stoner Cookbook and is dressed to impress.
Sip on this—Weed Tea
This is an outrageously easy way to consume cannabis in a new way—a cup of tea. Simply add one tablespoon of canna butter to your favourite tea, let it dissolve and enjoy! Feel free to add in extra mint or chai spice to enhance the flavor.
Celebrate 4/20 everyday—Purple Kush Cake
Ah, birthdays cannot come fast enough. This recipe is slightly more advanced than the others in terms of technicality, but it is also sure to impress at the next party you attend (the Fourth of July, perhaps?). Baking novices take note—even if you know the basics of canna oil, this recipe still requires you to know how to bake a cake properly.
Wake up and get baked—Wake-n-Bake Smoothie
This recipe is the easiest of them all and creates a delicious, filling smoothie to help kick off your day. Just be prepared to create the cannabis coconut oil 12-18 hours prior, which you can make by following these simple directions. Once prepared, the coconut oil blends together with the other tasty ingredients for a delicious shake.
Chocolate on everything—Cannabis Chocolate Frosting
Once again, this is an easy recipe to follow that creates beautiful cannabis chocolate frosting to accompany anything from muffins to cakes. Using cannabutter creates a creamy frosting, minimizing weed taste and facilitating portion control for users who may not have the same experience with edibles. We may or may not occasionally eat this straight off the spoon.
I dream of chickpeas—Cannabis Hummus
Hummus is everything and this recipe is nothing short of greatness. Combine the tasty flavors of tahini, lemon and chickpeas with canna oil and you’ve got a dynamite dip. Serve with toasted pita chips and some freshly cut veggies.
Breakfast time just got better—PB and Jam Breakfast Grit
Need another reason to wake up in the morning? Combine grits with peanut butter (or a nut butter of your choice) with some sweet strawberry jam, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a healthy dose of cannabis coconut oil to start the day with some good feelings.
