Cooking with cannabis
All weed edibles typically revolve around a few staple ingredients. These are the foundation of the recipes that allow chefs to turn essentially any dish into a cannabis edible. The most popular for homemade edibles are cannabis-infused butter (better known as cannabutter), oil, or sugar. It may take you a few tries to perfect your base infusion, however once you get it down, you can create large batches that can be used on a variety of dishes from baked goods to soups, salads, pasta, and more. You can find our cannabutter recipe here. All of the edibles recipes in this article call for either cannabutter or marijuana-infused olive oil. Both of these ingredients can last in your pantry or freezer for months or more.
For the ultimate wake and bake, whip up a quick batch of 420 pancakes. You can use a premade pancake mix or create your own batter from scratch using flour, baking powder, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, an egg, cannabutter, and salt. Either way, make sure to calculate your dosage because you will also be using cannabutter in the pan when cooking or on the pancake after it’s finished. Be as creative as you want with toppings. Some of the best combinations are peanut butter, chocolate chips, and bananas; sugar and cinnamon; and yogurt or cream cheese with fresh fruit.
