6 Awesome Cannabis Butter Recipes to Try Today

Everyone has heard of pot brownies, but eating chocolate over and over again gets old after a while. There comes the need for something fresh and new. Well, it’s possible to use cannabis in other common favorite foods as well.

Here are six cannabis butter recipes that are fun, easy to make, and are guaranteed to not be boring to the taste buds.

1. Cannaburgers

After a night of smoking, it’s normal to crave something meaty and greasy and this cannaburger recipe will fit that bill. It calls for cannabis olive oil rather than cannabutter, but you can substitute it by melting it down.

It calls for:

  • Fatty hamburger meat
  • Cannabutter
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 Cup of red cracked chilis
  • 1 Tablespoon of rock salt
  • 1 Cup of minced onions
  • An egg
  • Hamburger buns
  • Everyone’s favorite toppings

Combine the cannabutter with the hamburger meat, onion, spices, and egg. The spices can vary, but using red cracked chilis gives it a pleasant kick. Once the meat is well mixed by hand, it’s time to make the patties.

From here it will work just like cooking any other burger. Putting them on the grill will create a mouth-watering smoky flavor but not everyone has a grill.

Pan frying is widely available and a skillet will produce thin, diner-style burgers. Both methods have their benefits.

2. Mac and Cheese

There is something about mac and cheese that makes it a classic. Is it the crusty top? The creamy cheese? It may be hard to grasp this, but we just knew we had to include it with our cannabis butter recipes.

There are a lot of ingredients for this recipe so hang on tight:

  • 1/2 Pound of elbow macaroni, or shells
  • 1 Tablespoon of canola oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of salt.

That’s just for the pasta, the cheese sauce calls for:

  • 5 Tablespoons of cannabutter
  • 2 1/2-3 Cups of warm milk
  • 1 Cup of smoked mozzarella
  • 2 Cups of medium cheddar
  • 1 Tablespoon of kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 Cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 Cup of sharp cheddar

For onion rings:

  • 1 Small onion peeled, and thinly sliced

Start off by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. While it’s doing that, bring water, salt, and oil to a boil in a large pot and add the noodles.

Melt the cannabutter in a small saucepan and add the flour. Whisk this mixture constantly for five minutes. Add in the warm milk and cook it until it’s thick and smooth. Put in the cheese, salt, paprika, pepper, and nutmeg, dump in the macaroni, and stir the mixture well. Once it’s mixed pour it into a buttered 6-8 ramekins.

Combine the canola oil, sharp cheddar, and breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Sprinkle it on to the ramekins and bake it for 25-35 minutes.

While it bakes, keep busy by cooking the onion rings. It takes 4-5 minutes and when they are done frying in the oil, take them and place them on a paper towel to catch some of the grease. They will be sprinkled on top of the mac and cheese before it’s served.

3. Thai Iced Tea

On top of food, there are many cannabis butter recipes for beverages as well. One of these is Thai iced tea.

The recipe includes:

  • 6 Chai tea bags
  • Two cardamon pods
  • 1 Star anise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 8 Cups of boiling water
  • 1/4 of sugar (optional if sweetness is desired)
  • 1 Can of condensed milk
  • 3-5 teaspoons of melted cannabutter

Place the teabags in a pitcher and pour 8 cups of boiling water over them. Let it steep for 4-5 minutes before removing them and let it cool to room temperature.

Combine the condensed milk with the melted cannabutter, put ice in the glasses and fill each one about two-thirds of the way with tea. Add the milk mixture on top, it will sink to the bottom.

There is also a recipe for doing this with coffee dump a teaspoon of cannabutter in a cup of coffee for an extra morning boost.

4. Peanut Butter Cookies

Cannabis peanut butter cookies are made pretty much the same as regular peanut butter cookies.

Combine 4 tablespoons of cannabutter, 1/2 a cup of white sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of flour, and egg, and a pinch of salt in a bowl and stir. Roll the dough into balls and put them on a pan covered with parchment paper. Bake, and enjoy!

5. Turkey

Put an extra spin on the holiday dinner with a cannabis-infused turkey. This recipe is pretty simple and self-explanatory.

Use the same seasonings that would normally be used on a holiday bird, but cover it in cannabutter. Not only will it be moist and delicious, but the family will have the most satisfying after-dinner nap they have ever had.

6. Potcorn

Scratching the old brain trying to find a tasty snack for a movie night with friends? Pot popcorn is the perfect solution. It’s also really simple to make.

Heat vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat and combine it with ground cannabis. Stir until it turns green and add in 1-4 kernels in to start. Once those pop, go ahead add in the rest.

Put a lid on the pot and lightly shake it until the popping noises die down. Uncover it and pour on the melted cannabutter and salt.

How to Dab: A Beginner’s Guide to Cannabis Concentrates

Posted on Oct 5, 2018 in Other Legal Ways to Get High

how to dab

You’re not imagining it — cannabis use is decidedly on the rise in the United States and beyond.

In fact, marijuana use is becoming so popular, that it’s even giving wine a run for its money!

With this sudden urge for the green, people are learning about more and more methods of using cannabis. In other words: there are lots more ways to enjoy the good stuff than by smoking it from a pipe or a bowl.

There are also excellent legal ways to get high.

One of the most popular?

Dabbing marijuana and using cannabis concentrates. Not only is it much easier than you might think, it also gives you some seriously awesome effects.

Does dabbing sound like something that interests you?

In this post, we’ll teach you everything that you need to know about how to dab.

What Does Dabbing Marijuana Mean?

First, let’s talk about what a marijuana dab actually is.

In the simplest possible terms, the process of dabbing involves vaporizing cannabis concentrate and then inhaling it.

In some cases, you’ve probably heard the concentrates called things like wax, shatter, and even BHO. You really won’t need to use much concentrate in order to get the desired effect.

This is because dabbing concentrate is much more potent than the traditional methods of smoking.

While many people dab marijuana, there are also CBD extracts that don’t contain any of the THC that gets you high. This is especially useful for people who are looking to cannabis as a form of relief from pain and other ailments.

It’s also an awesome alternative for people who find themselves excessively coughing when they use more traditional forms of marijuana.

How to Dab: Getting the Right Tools

The first step in learning how to dab cannabis concentrate properly?

You need to be certain that you have the right tools on hand.

You’ll need, of course, the cannabis extract of your choosing. Never, ever, try dabbing with an extract that has an alcohol base.

You should also grab a special titanium nail that will go inside the gauge of a traditional water pipe. Of course, this means that you’ll also need a water pipe, which you’ll rig into your own dabbing tool.

You should also get a torch or a lighter — even the tools you use to brown creme brulee work incredibly well.

Get a dabber, which is usually a metal or glass tool that lets you get the dab in place.

Finally, you’ll need a dome, which is glass that goes around the nail you’ll put in your water pipe.

When in doubt, start off with a smaller amount of concentrate than you think you’ll need. You can always add more later.

So, what’s the right size?

In general, we recommend a size that’s roughly comparable to a breadcrumb.

The Best Way to Dab

Now that you’ve got all the important tools assembled?

Let’s talk about how to dab!

Make sure you dab with someone who has done it before if it’s your first time.

In general, it’s always a good idea to dab sitting down. Especially if you’re newer to cannabis concentrates, you might be surprised by how quickly and deeply they can start to impact you.

Start by turning on the flame and then putting it on the nail. You’ll know that it’s a good time to stop when the nail starts to turn into a reddish color.

Then, go ahead and turn off your flame. Next, put the dome of glass over the nail itself. For best results, wait about ten to fifteen seconds. This will allow the nail to cool down so that you don’t end up burning yourself.

That would definitely sour your experience!

Now, take a hold of your dabbing tool, and put the amount that you’d like to dab (again, remember we suggest a breadcrumb amount) on the nail.

Then, slowly and steadily take a breath in. You can turn the tip of the dabber so that you don’t end up wasting any of the concentrate.

Then, breathe out, and wait for everything to take effect!

The Many Benefits of Dabbing

There are tons of reasons why you should give dabbing a try.

If you have trouble falling and staying asleep, dabbing a cannabis concentrate can help you to hit the hay better and faster.

It can also help to deal with more serious medical issues.

This includes things like the treatment of epilepsy, those struggling with anxiety issues, and even Parkinson’s and other issues.

Just make sure that you stay safe when you dab. Don’t plan to drive or operate any kind of machinery in the aftermath.

However, we’re pretty sure that because of how much you’ll end up enjoying the experience, you’ll want to stay put and stay relaxed!

You’ve Mastered How to Dab: What’s Next?

We hope that this post has taught you everything that you need to know about how to dab.

Not only is dabbing marijuana an awesome alternative to smoking, it’s also a cost-effective way to get some relief with CBD.

Many people find that dabbing helps them to fall asleep better at night, deal with anxiety issues, and so much more.
