Movies & Munchies: National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

This 1989 American Christmas comedy flick is a stoner’s paradise.

The third installment of National Lampoon magazine’s Vacation film series is regarded as a Christmas classic.

This is the type of movie you’d watch in the late morning while still in your pajamas. Christmas Vacation is a hilarious ode to family vacations. This third expedition of the Griswold family is a gorgeously packaged holiday present that should thrill family audiences everywhere.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday spirit. Some of our most fond memories come from the films we enjoyed on a holiday morning. As an adult, more specifically a stoner adult, we get a chance to revisit these moments while under the effects of more than the holiday bliss. 

This classic is a must-watch, and so is the recipe we bring for you today. The one thing that can elevate your experience of watching holiday films is doing so while eating some delicious, cannabis-infused pancakes. 

National Lampoon’s Vacation Film Series

This film is a welcomed upgrade over the last National Lampoon’s Vacation foray, National Lampoon’s European Vacation. This time, Clark Griswold, played by Chevy Chase, is a suburban family man who becomes overly excited about a family vacation.

As is typical of his sentimental disposition, he places too much emphasis on its creation. He wishes for a “pleasant, old-fashioned, family Christmas.” Pleasant and old-fashioned are just two things that aren’t too easy to achieve.

Clark Griswold absolutely goes insane: Chase tries to jam too much holiday pleasure into one family house. The hurdles and gags are endless, and you’ll be crying out in tears of joy from the little mishaps, and funny occurrences along the way.

Hopefully, this movie will have you rolling around laughing while under the influence of some delicious cannabis-infused pancakes we’ll teach you how to make. There’s a trip to the woods for the tree, 25,000 exterior lights, huge presents, and too many relatives.

This movie is more than thirty years old! Even though it may not have been as successful back then, it is now considered a holiday classic. There are lots of haters out there, but if we take into consideration the nostalgia and memories, this film is up there with the best. 

The Munchies: Cannabis-Infused Bacon-Packed Pancakes

Nothing beats the munchies as breakfast food does. To be fair, there are great traditional breakfast plates, but none carry such power as pancakes do. 

To further elevate the experience, we’ll be seeing how to infuse pancakes with cannabis. This will guarantee you experience a delicious taste-bud exploding experience that will also have you high as a kite. 

Oh, one last thing. We’ll be making bacon pancakes, which adds even more layers of complexity to the already bloating pot of fun. You can choose to infuse your bacon as well, but we’ll be infusing the pancake mix instead. 

If you want to get some relief and relaxation you need to take a look at this. Binoid’s CBDistillery THC Free CBD oil is formulated using 99% pure hemp CBD isolate. This means you get the best, highest-quality purely CBD oil for you to dose on, without a need to worry about THC. 

If you’re a fan of THC, opt for Binoid’s Knockout Blend Live Resin Disposable 2G, coming in Fire OG and Ice Breaker strains. This heavy-hitting disposable uses premium THC-P, THC-H, and HHC-P distillate, paired with live resin strains for a well-rounded, potent, and relaxing high.

This recipe makes around ten pancakes. Be careful not to overdo your fill, as one of these is more than plenty to provide you with a mind-numbing user experience. We recommend you prepare an extra batch of pancake batter to eat without the risk of greening out. 


  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½  tablespoons sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 ⅓ cups cannamilk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or oil
  • ⅓ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 10 bacon strips


  1. Fry or bake the bacon strips until golden brown and crunchy. Set to the side.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. In the center of the dish, make a well.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, add the egg, cannamilk, oil, and vanilla extract. Fill the well made in the dry ingredient bowl with the wet ingredient mix just made.
  4. Mix only until combined, and the batter is slightly lumpy. Due to the formation of gluten, over-mixing results in flat and chewy cannabis pancakes.
  5. Heat up a pan over medium heat and place one bacon strip.
  6. Pour 1/3 cup batter onto the prepared pan on medium heat, making sure the bacon strip is completely inside the pancake form. You can use a round cookie cutter for perfect circles. 
  7. When bubbles appear and pop, verify that the pancake is properly browned before flipping. Remove the pancakes from the pan when the other side is beautifully browned.

How To Make Cannamilk

  1. Cannabis should be broken into little bits. Decarboxylate cannabis in a 240° oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Warm the milk in a double boiler over medium heat or a heavy saucepan over low to medium-low heat. Decarboxylated cannabis should be added. Heat the milk to 180°F and keep it there for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour through a fine strainer or a cheesecloth-lined strainer. To extract all of the liquid, press the cannabis with the back of a spoon. Allow the cannamilk to cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for later usage or use in cannabis pancakes.
