Making marijuana edibles is easier than ever if you know the essential ingredients involved. Some of the best weed recipes out there can be achieved simply by using canna-butter or canna-oil, which are cannabis-infused versions of classic butter and oil ingredients. Cooking with cannabis is preferable for many over smoking marijuana because the high can last longer and be stronger. Though it takes longer to feel the THC high from edibles and it can be hard to measure out the amount of THC in edibles as opposed to smoked THC, it is a preference for many. Not ingesting smoke is a great benefit of marijuana edibles over inhalation. Whether you like one, the other, or both options when consuming your THC, here are some of the best weed recipes you can create.

One of the best weed recipes around, and by far the most popular marijuana edible, is weed brownies. When making weed brownies, you first must make your canna-butter, which includes heating up your cannabis on the stove, adding water and butter to the mix. You then must strain out the plant material and refrigerate your butter. Once you make the butter, learning how to make pot brownies that are delicious is simple. You will mix your canna-butter with eggs, water, pecans, chocolate chips, and brownie mix. Put it in your greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins. Bon Appetit!

Another one of the best weed recipes out there is peanut butter cookies. Of course, when you’re looking to get a THC high, you’re going to want something sweet to munch on, and cookies are the perfect fix. Cooking with cannabis is simple once you’ve created your canna-butter stash. For peanut butter cookies, you’ll need to mix half a cup of canna-butter, one cup of crunchy peanut butter, two tablespoons of shortening, one egg, two tablespoons of vanilla extract, one cup of flour, half a cup of sugar, half a cup of brown sugar, half a teaspoon of baking soda, half a teaspoon of baking powder, and half a teaspoon of sea salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Mac and cheese is a heavenly food all on its own, but can you imagine cooking with cannabis and being able to make mac and cheese marijuana edibles? That would be one of the best weed recipes ever. Well, it’s probably one of the simplest recipes there is! If you can make canna-butter, then you can easily make marijuana mac and cheese. Simply make your favorite mac and cheese recipe, whether that be some secret special creation or straight out of a box, and instead of butter, substitute canna-butter instead. Voila! You now have amazing THC infused mac and cheese to enjoy.

One of the best weed recipes, which will also be healthy, is a yummy strawberry cream fruit smoothie! To make a fruit smoothie, you’ll have to first learn how to make cannabis coconut oil to include in the mix. You simply boil the ground marijuana into the coconut oil and then sift out the plant material to make this canna-coconut oil. To make your smoothie, you’ll add two tablespoons of the canna-coconut oil, one and a half cups of almond milk, two and a half cups of ripe strawberries, one cup strawberry yogurt, one tablespoon honey, and one cup of ice. Then, blend it all together for a delicious treat!

If you want to get the party started just right, one of the best weed recipes that can double as an excellent dinner for friends is parmesan and garlic marijuana pasta. For this pasta, simply take one package of angel hair pasta and boil it in a pot on the stove. Add kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Add four tablespoons of that unsalted canna-butter you have prepared, seven roughly chopped garlic cloves, and three quarters of cup of parmesan cheese. So simple! Make enough for all your friends to feel the THC effect and enjoy a fun night.

Doughnut holes are one of the best weed recipes because they are the perfect munchie food that you can snack on for hours. Making doughnut holes is simple too because, like most of these recipes, all you need is canna-butter to infuse your doughnut holes with THC and turn them into marijuana edibles. The recipe includes one cup of white sugar, a half cup of melted canna-butter, three quarters of a teaspoon containing ground nutmeg, a half cup of milk, one teaspoon of baking powder, one cup of all-purpose flour, and one teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Place the mix into mini muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, remove them from the cups, dip them in melted canna-butter, and roll them in cinnamon sugar!

To make cheese grits infused with cannabis, all you need is to substitute normal milk with canna-milk. Canna-milk, like butter and oil, is boiled on the stove and then the plant material is sifted out. Grits are one of the best weed recipes because when cheese is added, they can be enjoyed at any time of the day. To make cheese grits, combine three cups canna-milk, one cup of instant grits, one teaspoon of salt, a half cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese, and half a cup of grated Monterey jack cheese.

Making cinnamon rolls is a simple marijuana edible recipe to enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Simply replace the butter in your recipe with canna-butter! The recipe is as follows. One and a half tablespoons of active dry yeast, one and a half tablespoons of granulated sugar, a half cup of warm water, eight tablespoons of unsalted, melted canna-butter, three quarters of a cup of whole milk, three quarters of a cup of granulated sugar, one egg, four cups of all-purpose flour, and one teaspoon of salt.

Easily one of the best weed recipes and the simplest by far, pop your normal bowl of popcorn and drench it in melted canna-butter for your afternoon marijuana edible treat! Cooking with cannabis has never been easier than this. Watching movies has also never been more fun than when your snack is THC infused. Trust me on this!

Finally, another one of the best weed recipes out there is this cannabis cornbread. The recipe calls for one tablespoon and one teaspoon of unsalted butter, two teaspoons cannabutter, three quarters of a cup of cornmeal, three quarters of a cup of all-purpose flour, a third of a cup of sugar, five teaspoons of baking powder, three quarters of a teaspoon of salt, one cup milk, and one egg. Bake at 400 degrees for 19 minutes for the perfect southern THC infused delight.

All these recipes are great for your munchie cravings as long as you don't make one of the more common mistakes people make when preparing edibles. Try them out today and put your tongue and THC desires to the test.
