15 Superb Food Recipes Infused with Cannabis

Forget “pot brownies.” While this classic cannabis concoction is still immensely popular, there are plenty of other recipes that include cannabis plant on the list of ingredients.

They’re not only delicious, they also allow you to enjoy the benefits of THC and CBD.

The world of edible cannabis has nearly limitless possibilities. Whether you’re looking for main courses, desserts, drinks, or desserts, there’s a cannabis-inspired recipe to suit your needs.

When searching for marijuana recipes, you’ll find a couple of products on the list of ingredients, including:

Canna-oil

The process of creating canna-oil involves decarboxylating raw cannabis (basically, heating it in the oven), tossing it into a saucepan with oil, then straining out the plant material. What you’ll be left with is a simple, potent base for cooking.

Canna-butter

The process of creating canna-butter is similar to the above process, and involves decarboxylating the weed in the oven, placing it into a saucepan with butter and water, straining the canna-butter, and refrigerating it.

Get creative and try these amazing cannabis food recipes.

Entrees

Certain types of foods – including pasta, meat, and potatoes – are staples in many people’s lives. And while entrees are meant to nourish our bodies, there’s no reason why they can’t tempt our palates too.

Here are a few cannabis-infused dishes you absolutely need to try.

Cannabis-infused Gnocchi

Pasta is a staple in most people’s diet. It’s filling, tasty, and affordable. Gnocchi, in particular, is especially hearty, and with this recipe from Munchies, you’ll also be left with the benefits of cannabis too.

Ingredients:

3 baking potatoes

1 tbsp olive oil

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp baking powder

3 cups flour

Weed-infused butter

Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

salt

Directions:

Boil the potatoes with the skin on in salted water. Once done, remove the skin and finely mash them.

Mix all products together with a wooden spoon, then knead the mixture on a floured cutting board. Roll out the dough into thick squares and cut them into small pieces. Roll the pieces and press into one side with the back side of a fork.

Boil as many pieces as you wish to eat at one sitting for a few minutes until they rise to the top of the water, and place all remaining gnocchi in a plastic bag for future use. Strain and rinse the gnocchi, and top them with your favorite sauce or grated cheese.

2. Canna-Chili

Another classic dish, this recipe has been tweaked by Culinary Cannabis to include some cannabis.

Ingredients:

2 15 oz cans black beans, drained

2 15 oz cans black-eyed peas, drained

2 15 oz cans dark red kidney beans, drained

2 sweet onions, chopped

8-12 plum tomatoes, chopped

1/3 cup dry red wine

1-2 pounds chopped beef

1-2 tbsp cumin

2 tbsp chili powder

1-2 tbsp dried chili flakes

3 tbsp Lea and Perrins

3-4 large tbsp marijuana butter

Directions:

Place all the beans in a large pot and cook under low heat. After a couple of minutes, add the spices, wine, and Lea and Perrins. Stir occasionally for about 30 minutes to an hour, then add the tomatoes and onions.

In a separate wok, add a few cloves of garlic, then stir-fry the beef with a dollop of extra virgin olive oil. Once browned, add the beef to the pot of beans.

Allow the chili to simmer slowly for 1 to 2 hours over low heat while stirring occasionally. Add the melted cannabis a few minutes before serving.

3. Pizza with Cannabis Oil Crust

Classic pizza is getting an additional ingredients tossed into the mix thanks to this recipe variation from Cannabis.info.

Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together, then create a divot at the top. Pour the marijuana-infused oil into the divot.

With a knife, mix in some warm water to make a dough, making sure to add a little at a time to reach the right consistency. If it’s too wet, add some flour to dry it up.

With flour on your hands, knead the dough for about a minute, then cover the bowl with a plate or towel and let it sit for at least an hour to allow the dough to rise.

Lightly grease a pizza tray and add the dough. Press out the dough towards the edges to cover the tray evenly. Spread the sauce over top, then add the mozzarella and basil.

Bake in the oven at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes.
