What are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking!
Cannabis infused cooking oil
This is one of the most common recipes that people who are interested in cooking with cannabis can make, because it’s fairly easy and it’s dynamic – you can use the oil with almost anything. Whether you sauté with it, use it for salad dressing, or drizzle it on some veggies, this cooking oil is usable virtually on anything that you normally use cooking oil for.
This recipe takes about an hour or so from start to end to make, and the oil you make can be used for up to two months if you store it in the fridge. It’s recommended that you use about an ounce of cannabis buds in the recipe.
One tip? Make sure you use a fruity extra-virgin olive oil to make the taste better.
Never thought of infusing your butter with cannabis, have you? Besides the fact that butter is amazing and that more of it is always better, cannabis butter is probably even better. You just need two ingredients – cannabis, and a few sticks of butter, and a little bit of patience – the recipe from start to end takes about six hours.
The end result is worth it. You can use your cannabis butter on veggies, for grilling, or buttering up some waffles, pancakes or toast in the morning.
Peppermint pot brownies
Let’s take a look at a spin on the classic pot brownie recipe – the peppermint pot brownie! This delicious recipe is easy enough to make (and you can even use regular old brownie mix – no need to start from scratch) and it makes up to 24 servings, making it the perfect party recipe to take anywhere. You’ll want to make this one over and over again, and it makes for a perfect holiday dessert.
The recipe uses cannabis butter in it, so you’ll either have to have some on hand or make it to accompany the brownies.
This tomato soup recipe is perfect for a cool fall day, to enjoy with a grilled cheese (made with cannabis butter, perhaps?). There’s nothing like sipping on some classic tomato soup when it’s cold outside, so this is the ultimate cannabis recipe for the upcoming fall season.
This recipe for tomato soup uses cannabis oil, which provides the high that you want it to, and the other ingredients make for a delicious soup that you’ll want to make over and over again. The soup uses balsamic vinegar, garlic, feta cheese, parsley, and much more – it’s a great recipe that you may even want to make without the cannabis in it again!
Trying to be healthy, and also incorporate some cannabis into your diet? Hummus the perfect answer to that – it’s a healthy snack that’s great for dipping pita chips and veggies into. It also makes a nice spread on a sandwich.
This hummus recipe uses cannabis canola oil, chickpeas, tahini, cumin, garlic, and lemon juice, along with a few other fresh ingredients. The great thing about hummus is you can customize the flavor with what you like – spinach, roasted peppers, garlic – add anything you want to make it your own.
But not your average s’mores – these are s’mores with peanut butter. And guess what’s in the peanut butter? A little bit of marijuana!
The peanut butter that you’ll spread on the s’mores needs to be mixed with the cannabis butter recipe that we provided you earlier on. The combination is really an unforgettable one. Peanut butter plus graham crackers, plus chocolate and marshmallows – you’ve got the perfect s’mores.
Chocolate chip cookies
Chocolate chip cookies are a classic recipe that adding a little bit of marijuana makes even better – there’s no better combination than sugar, chocolate and cannabis – and these chocolate chip cookies are the perfect mashup of all of those ingredients.
The recipe uses cannabis butter as the marijuana component.
Shrimp quesadillas are great on their own – a little bit of salsa, cheese, peppers and shrimp, and you’ve got yourself a great meal. But, pairing them with some cannabis oil? Wow – a meal to remember. These shrimp quesadillas have bell peppers, scallions, oregano, mozzarella, and delicious shrimp, and are really a recipe to bookmark and save for later. Great for parties, too.
Not just for Thanksgiving and Christmas, pecan pie is a great dessert for pretty much any time of day – or season. This recipe uses cannabis butter to get your marijuana kick in there, but it’s also sweet and decadent and full of sweet and salty pecans covered in a syrupy filling. It’s really a recipe that you can enjoy whenever and wherever – and it’s only made better by the cannabis butter inside the crust. This isn’t a recipe you want to bring to your family’s Thanksgiving gathering (at least, without warning everyone first), but it’s a great recipe to enjoy at home with family or friends.
Oh, yeah – you can definitely marinate your burgers in some marijuana. It’s a somewhat complicated recipe, but these burgers will be spiced like you’ve never had before. Grilling out to a whole new level – with some onions, red cracked chilis, cheese, and some fatty hamburger meat. The cannabis is basically mixed into your ground beef, which you can knead with your hands and integrate in the chilis and onions as well. But, make sure your beef is fatty so that the marijuana sinks in good! After you’ve mixed in the cannabis deep in your beef, making sure that it’s spread out, all you do next is grill them like you would any other time, and then top it with your favorite burger toppings, and enjoy!
Braised beef nachos
Sounds mouthwatering before you even dive into the recipe, right? This recipe isn’t for beginner cooks – the ingredients list itself is a mile long and it takes about three hours to make. Where’s the marijuana come in? It’s all in the cannabis butter that you bake your ribs in.
That’s the part that takes the longest, about two and a half hours of cooking in total. After the meat is done, however, you can just get your nachos set up and enjoy! Drizzle the flaky braised beef in some peppers, melted cheese, onions, salsa and some guacamole – you’ve got yourself some really gourmet nachos, and you can add in any toppings that you want that this recipe doesn’t list.
Whatever makes your nachos great, throw it on there!
Great idea for your next date or night in with your friends – because who doesn’t like a nice, hot bowl of buttery popcorn? This popcorn uses some extra special cannabis butter drizzled all over it, and some ground cannabis.
All you do is heat up some vegetable oil on the stove, put a little bit of ground cannabis in there with it, and then slowly introduce the popcorn kernels to the oil mixture. Add in the butter after it’s done, and voila! You’ve got yourself a big bowl of pot popcorn. Turn down the lights, pop in a movie and you’re set for the night.
No bake chocolate balls
No bake anything is right up our alley – if we don’t have to turn the oven on and wait for something to cook, we’re all about it! And it involves chocolate? Even better!
These no-bake chocolate balls are filled with oats and peanut butter, plus espresso and coconut, with a little bit of honey and powdered sugar. Sound salivatingly delicious enough already? Add in the cocoa and cannabis butter, and you’ve got yourself a decadent dessert for the whole family to enjoy! These no-bake balls can be chilled for about half an hour before they’re ready to be eaten, making them a really great option for when you need a snack for a party in a jiffy.
Frozen marijuana margaritas
Sound like a risky combination? Sign us up for these! Taco Tuesday will never be the same with these sour and sweet margaritas that are for the experienced cannabis user. The combination of alcohol and marijuana can be tricky unless you know exactly how much you can handle. If you are hyper aware of yourself and your limits, these margaritas will be a huge hit at your next function.
The trick? Infuse the cannabis into the tequila. Everything else is just your typical margarita – lime juice, ice, cocktail salt, and a little bit of honey to add some sweetness.
Chicken pot pie
Get it? Chicken pot pie? Ah, okay, it’s a lame one. But, this really is chicken pot pie like your mom used to make it, with a twist that she likely didn’t imagine that you’d be trying to make years later! This chicken pot pie is creamy and has the classic cream of chicken soup taste, with a very buttery crust that melts in your mouth. It’s the perfect dinner option, and it’s an excellent comfort food – you’ll find yourself relaxing on the couch with a movie and a glass of wine afterward, and probably falling asleep before 10 p.m. The combination of the chicken broth with green peas, potatoes, onions, celery, milk, and boneless chicken breasts nice and hot inside a flakey, sweet pie crust is just enough to take you right back to those days when gramma used to whip up some great meals.
But, I bet gramma didn’t infuse cannabis into her pie crust.
The perfect snack for taking anywhere – the beach, hiking, or on a long car trip if you want a little bit of a buzz afterward. The cannabis is all in the coconut oil that you make, and combines well with some pitted dates, gluten-free oatmeal, dried apricots, dried pineapple rings, almond butter, banana chips, and some coconut sugar and agave. These dried snacks are gluten free and vegan, making them ideal for anyone on any type of dietary restriction, and they’re the perfect travel snack.
Okay, so this isn’t a genius recipe with some sort of secret ingredient that adds something you’ve never heard of into the ingredients list. Basically, baked potatoes, but with the cannabis butter recipe that we gave you earlier. Instead of buttering your potatoes up with some regular butter, split them in half and fill them with cannabis butter, a big dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of scallions, and a smattering of salt and pepper, and serve that right next to a juicy steak and call it a night. There’s nothing like turning a classic recipe into something that involves some edibles – and baked potatoes are the perfect, easy way to do just that.
Overall, cooking with cannabis provides you with a different experience than smoking marijuana does. It’s not an instant high, it’s something that you’ll feel slowly throughout your body while you’re eating, or even a little while after you’re done, and gives you a different sort of buzz than smoking does. It’s even better when you can infuse your fancy meals with some cannabis, rather than just sticking with some basic recipes like pot brownies like everyone else in the world does. Instead, try some of our recipes above and spice up your edible consumption by trying something new!
With cannabis oil and cannabis butter, you can make pretty much anything. Don’t limit yourself to just these recipes, replace your regular butter or oils with the cannabis butter and oil and see what you can make!
