The Best Homemade Cannabis-Infused Foods (+ Healthy Options)
Sure, shopping online for weed edibles is fun, but sometimes you just want (or need) that… homemade touch.
We’ve got you covered.

We went online and dug around for the most popular homemade cannabis-infused foods—and got some recipes (that are relatively easy to pull off on short notice) too.

To make things easier, we separated these edibles recipes into a few categories:
  • edibles for those special occasions (why bake birthday cakes when you can bring birthday edibles for the whole party?)
  • everyday edibles (perfect for regular pain relief)
  • and even healthy edibles. Yep, they exist.

Oh and yes, we’ll teach you how to make that all-important cannabis butter, which you’ll need for a few of these (and many other) delicious recipes.

Recipe #1: Special occasion edibles

Whether it’s for someone’s birthday or just a good old-fashioned house party, bringing a big plate of edibles is usually a welcome gift for any special occasion. Sharing is caring, right? And what better gift than a classic, time-tested recipe from the ‘50s? Here’s the recipe for Alice B. Toklas’s (Gertrude Stein’s lover) famous hashish fudge, which she called “the food of paradise,” as seen in The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook. The only caveat: don’t eat more than two—her words, not ours.

Ingredients

1 tsp black peppercorns
1 nutmeg
4 average-sized sticks of cinnamon
1 tsp coriander
½ cup chopped mixture of stoned dates, dried figs, shelled almonds and peanuts
¼ ounce weed warmed over the stove for two or three minutes and ground to a powder
¾ cup sugar 1 stick or 8 tbsp softened butter

Directions

1. Using a mortar and pestle, pulverize peppercorns, nutmeg, cinnamon and coriander, then combine the spice mixture with dates, figs, almonds and peanuts in a large bowl.
2. Add weed and knead together.
3. Combine sugar and butter until smooth.
4. Add to fudge mixture and mix thoroughly.
5. Continue to knead until the mixture can be rolled into balls about the size of a walnut. 6. According to Toklas, you should be prepared for hysterical fits of laughter and thoughts that might take you to “many simultaneous planes.”

Recipes #2–3: Everyday edibles

If you’re looking for edibles that you can have every day, simple is probably best. But other than being easy and efficient to make, it’s probably also better to have relatively healthy cannabis-infused food. After all, you’re going to be having this often. It doesn’t have to be raw or vegan to be healthy, but your body is probably going to not like a daily dose of super-buttery edibles.

Who wants to eat edibles for pain, only to experience a different kind of pain later on?

4. Remove from heat, let cool.
5. Mix with egg, flour, and sugar until you have a smooth batter.

Healthy(-ish) oatmeal cookies

Ingredients for about 20 to 25 cookies:

1 cup softened cannabutter
1 ½ cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs (alternatives: 1 big mashed banana)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 or 2 tsp vanilla or almond extract

Fun extras:

A handful of your favourite chips
1 to 1.5 cups chocolate chips
¼ cup baking cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup peanut butter

Directions:

1. Soften cannabutter on the stove (keep it on low), then take it off the heat.
2. Preheat oven to 325° F.
3. In a big mixing bowl, mix flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, and any optional ingredients (cinnamon, nutmeg, chips, etc).
4. In a smaller bowl, mix softened cannabutter with eggs, brown and granulated sugar, and any other optional ingredients.
5. Combine both bowls. If the dough still seems runny, sprinkle a bit of oat or flour on top and mix it into the dough.
6. Roll the dough into balls (any size you’d like, but not too big) and lay them on a tray—covered with parchment paper or greased.
7. Bake for 15-17 minutes. When a fork can come out of the dough clean, that’s how you’ll know they’re ready. Recipe #4: Weed butter recipe – make your own cannabutter for edibles But wait, you say. I need cannabis butter for these recipes!

Yup, and we’ll teach you to how to make that too. (Aka. THC butter. Aka. cannabutter. Aka. the most magical liquid, perhaps in the world. If you’ve always wondered how easy it is to make cannabutter—and it’s really easy—here’s the recipe.)

Ingredients

½ cup salted butter
¼ ounce finely ground buds

Directions

1. Melt butter on low heat in a skillet or saucepan.
2. Add ground buds, simmer (on low heat) while stirring for ~45 minutes. The best way to make THC butter is to not burn the buds on too high of a heat setting.
3. Strain butter with a sieve into a glass jar. with a tight-fitting lid.
4. Keep pushing any solid weed against the sieve—get as much butter as you can. (You won’t need the remainder of the ground buds after.)

Your cannabutter is good to go! (Or, stick it in the fridge or freeze until you need it.)
