Top 10 Best Cannabis Recipes

4 min

Today, more and more people are using marijuana for various reasons. For the love of weed to the amazing benefits it offers to people dealing with chronic pain, incorporating cannabis into certain recipes can make the medicine go down just a little easier.

Creating edibles is just one of the ways to get the goodness of cannabis into your system. Although edibles may have a few drawbacks - dosing and kick-in time to name a few - there are also plenty of reasons why making your own edibles is an awesome plan.

Edibles may have benefits for both medical and recreational users. For one, they are a great and delicious way for medical users to get their daily dose of CBD, as CBD edibles do not bring any of the harmful side effects of actually smoking cannabis with a side of tobacco. Also, there are ways to boost your high when eating edibles, such as adding extra ingredients like lecithin to your recipe.

Everything You Need To Know About Cannabis Edibles

But where to start? Cannabis recipes are abundant on the net, and trying to find the best one would take forever, let alone have you packing on the pounds! Zamnesia is at your service, with this list of our Top 10 Best Cannabis Recipes.

1. Special Brownies

Everyone has heard of these famous desserts. To cook them, you will need 1 box of brownie mix that calls for oil. Obviously, you will also need weed. For this recipe, 4 to 18 grams are recommended. You can then heat a saucepan of the instructed amount of oil and add the weed to the pan. The weed and oil should be cooked on medium to low for around 30 minutes. Then, strain out the weed and add the oil to the brownie mixture. Then, follow the instructions on the brownie box. The actual weed plants can be dried and smoked while the brownie cooks with the oil infused with THC from the marijuana plants.

2. No Bake Canna Cookies

Another choice for dessert, the No Bake Canna Cookies are incredibly easy to make and delicious. In a saucepan, mix 2 cups of sugar, 4 tablespoons of cocoa, 1/2 cup of canna weed/butter, and 1/2 cup of milk. Then, add 3 cups of oatmeal, 1 cup of peanut butter, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Combine these ingredients and then drop on a waxed cookie sheet with a spoon. Let them cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy.

3. Marijuana Tea

Just like with other herbs, marijuana can be made into a tea. Boil water and pour over over the marijuana. Let the water seap into the the marijuana for an hour and a half. Add 1 tablespoon of marijuana or regular butter. Then, you can drink. This tea can be enjoyed hot or cold.

4. Cannabis Butter

Cannabis Butter is an excellent recipe to learn because it is used in many other favorite foods with weed. You will need 1 lb of butter and 1/2 ounce of marijuana that has been ground up fine. You should melt the butter in a saucepan and add the marijuana. Let it simmer on the stove until the butter has turned a shade of green from the weed. Pour the mixture through a strainer and chill the butter in the fridge.

5. Space Cake

You certainly don’t have to visit Holland to taste space cake. The following recipe is a snap to make at home. You can also customise it to your tastes by adding your favourite treats to the batter.

Don’t forget that you can also make cannabutter separately. Adding additional cannabis to the cake is a personal preference. What kind of cannabis you use depends on you. Many experienced cooks (and growers) do not use cannabis buds but rather the leaves or stems from their plants.

There is no right way to do this however. The key is to experiment.

Melt 225 grammes of butter in the microwave. Remove and place into a mixing bowl. Add 8 grammes of cannabis. Stir together over the heat until well blended. Add 200 grammes sugar. Blend using a whisk. Add 225 grammes flour. Then add 160 millilitres of milk and  2 eggs. Also, add 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Whisk together until the batter has a smooth consistency. Add extra ingredients. Stir into the batter until well blended. Pour the batter into a cake mold. Bake until golden brown (about 30 minutes). Use a toothpick to determine when the cake is ready. Cut and serve. Makes approximately 12 servings.

6. Weed Ice Cream

Weed Ice Cream is a tasty and sweet treat perfect for a warm summer night. In a saucepan, heat 18 ounces of cream until it boils. In a separate pan, heat 1/4 stick of butter, 75 grams of sugar, and a pinch of salt together. Place 1/4 ounce of weed into the melted butter. Then, you can whisk the cream into the butter mixture. Peel a few bananas and mash them in a bowl. Add some rum and honey to the bananas. Then, combine the banana mixture with the cream and butter. Pour this into a large container and freeze for a few hours. Enjoy!

7. Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix 1/2 cup of melted marijuana butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter together. Add 1/2 cup of flour. Then, add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Make small bowls of this mixture and place on a greased cookie sheet. Then, you can bake for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool before enjoying.

8. Magic Pancakes

You should first preheat your griddle or pan. Add 225 ml of cannabis milk to a pancake mixture of 150 grams flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 egg. Complete the cooking process just like basic pancakes.

9. 5 Minute Chocolate Mug cake

Add 4 tablespoons of flour, 4 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips, and 1 egg into a mug. Mix these ingredients well. Add a small splash of vanilla extract and mix. Then, fold in 3 tablespoons of cannabutter. Heat in microwave for 3-5 minutes. Enjoy!

10. Weed Oreos

Mix Jell-O Oreo Cookies 'n Creme with 500ml of milk in a bowl and stir well. Open up a package of 9 regular Oreo cookies and remove the white centres, leaving only the dark outsides. Do not throw away the white centres away though! You'll need to mix these with the Jell-O Oreo and add 30 grammes of cannabis butter. After mixing, stir again thoroughly until there are nu clumps left. Take the dark Oreo cookie outsides and place them facedown. Take a scoop of your Jell-O and cannabis butter mix and use it to 'glue' the two outsides back together. Do not hold back on the amount of mix you use, because one entire bowl should be used to make 9 weed Oreo cookies in total. Place the weed Oreos in the freezer for about 15 minutes to make sure the mixtures sets. When the cookies stay together as a whole, they are ready to be enjoyed.
