Consuming edibles can be one of the most pleasant methods for enjoying cannabis. You can take all the foods that you already love, and turn them into delectable edibles. It’s always fun to try out some new recipes, and potentially a lot more fun, when those recipes involve cannabis infusion. To help you get those creative juices flowing, here are 10 easy edible recipes that you can try at home…
Start the day off right by adding a little THC to your breakfast cereal. You can infuse any cereal with cannabis by slow-cooking it with some cannabis butter or “budder” as it is known among cannabis users and sellers. This goes for any type of cereal, from oatmeal to your favourite sugary puffs. Bag it up, pour on some milk, and enjoy a well-balanced, sense-heightening breakfast!
#2: Edible Meats
No one is going to suspect that the chicken salad or roast beef you brought for lunch is cannabis-infused. Simply cook your meat of choice with some cannabis butter or a marijuana glaze, and you end up with the perfect covert edible. Just make sure your nosey coworkers don’t try to snag your lunch.
#3: Cannabis Coffee
Mornings can feel like a bit of a contradiction sometimes. You want to wake up, but you’re also trying to relax. Weirdly, infusing your coffee with marijuana might be just the thing to meet this specific need. The caffeine acts quickly to wake you up, and the edibles keep your body from getting too anxious. Give this one a try (assuming you’re a coffee drinker)! Of course, if you don’t feel like making your own, you can always buy some infused coffee (and other infused beverages) here.
#4: Pot Burgers
Burgers are always very satisfying, and the perfect medium for mixing in some weed. Grind up your dry bud as finely as you can, and simply mix it in with the burger meat. The fats of the burger will soak up the THC, helping your body to absorb it into your system.
#5: Herb French Fries
Cook the French Fries in some cannabis butter, then toss them in the oven to crisp up. These go great with the infused burger. 😉
#6: Trail Mix
In our post about fun activities to try while high, we mentioned how hiking while high is a feast for your senses. And what better way to enjoy the outdoors than mixing some ground-up bud with your favourite trail mix! Set the stove burner to a low heat, and cook the fruits, nuts, and granola in cannabis butter. (Yeah, the butter / budder is super handy to have around.) Again, you can get it here.
#7: Salad Dressing
Cannabis is perfect for adding to sauces and glazes, and salad dressings! Just add some – you guessed it – cannabis butter to your favourite dressing mixture. Salad was never this enjoyable!
#8: Pot Wings
Speaking of sauces, chicken wings can be a perfect edible for parties because you can make any type of hemp sauce for it. You can make a hot glaze, buffalo sauce, BBQ or queso. The possibilities are extensive, so let your imagination go wild.
#9: Macaroni in a Pot
Mac and cheese is an already perfect combination that is both delicious and easy to make. To make it even better, melt the cheese and mix in a bit of that cannabis butter we keep talking about. Mix in the cooked macaroni, and enjoy the yummy goodness (and good times) in store for you.
#10: Ice Cream
Your food doesn’t need to be warm to get you baked. Most options for edibles involve baking and cooking, but making infused ice cream is a nice cool change of pace. Allow your favourite ice cream to mildly soften, then mix it with a little marijuana butter. Suddenly, there are now several options for cool concoctions. You can make edible milkshakes, sundaes, and ice cream sandwiches. You can even put a scoop or two on top of your favourite desserts.
We hope that we have provided you with some “food for thought”; new ideas or inspirations for your next culinary adventure. Remember to be cautious when trying any of these recipes. Do your measurements and keep track of how much cannabis you’re taking into your system so you don’t get too much of a good thing. As a rule of thumb, start with small doses and work your way up (or down) as needed or desired.
