Three cannabis-based recipes you could try

Cannabis edibles are popular and tasty but cannabis recipes are needed in order to make these. Edibles are cannabis-infused food that many enjoy to receive the side effects of the well-known marijuana plant. 

Consuming cannabis through food is a great alternative for those not wanting to smoke it. It can be enjoyed through your favourite sweet or savoury dishes whilst still gaining the same benefits. 

Edibles are eaten and not smoked, meaning the cannabis goes through the human digestive system. This system processes and digests food at a slow pace. Meaning that the cannabis may take longer to work but it will also last longer as the body releases the chemicals slowly over a long period.

Of course, dependent upon your geographical location, you may be breaking the law by making and consuming marijuana-infused edibles. So please check the legal status of your local jurisdiction before doing so.

Cannabis Recipes

Here we will go through five easy cannabis recipes you can try at home. But always remember to follow the guidelines of how much cannabis to put in to ensure you do not consume more than needed.

Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes 

These easy-to-make, delicious delights are tangy lemon cupcakes topped with a raspberry-infused jam buttercream.

Ingredients needed:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  •  ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  •  ¼ cup canna-oil

  •  ¼ tsp lemon extract
  •  Zest from 1 lemon

For the buttercream:

  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • ¼ cup raspberry jam
  • fresh raspberries

To make these cupcakes, you will need to preheat the oven to 175 Celcius and line the cupcake tin with liners. Secondly, you will need to add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl and blend together. In a separate bowl do the same with the milk, vegetable oil, canna-oil, eggs, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon zest. 

Then you will need to add both bowls of ingredients together and mix well. After this, add the cupcake batter evenly into the liners and bake for 15-20 minutes. Once cooked, remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool.

To make the buttercream you will need to beat the butter, raspberry jam and icing sugar together until fluffy. Then you can put the buttercream into a piping bag and pipe the icing onto each cupcake. Finally, you can enjoy. These cupcakes take on average an hour to make and are a sweet way of consuming cannabis.

Chicken Abodo 

Cannabis-infused chicken is a great and healthy way to enjoy your cannabis. Pair the chicken with a side dish of your choice and enjoy as a tasty snack or whole meal. 

Ingredients needed:

  • 2 lbs fresh chicken legs, thigh or combination
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp canna-coconut oil
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • ½ tbsp whole peppercorn
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tbsp coconut or apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sea salt

You will need a large bowl for this recipe. In the bowl, add all the spices, soy sauce and ginger, mix together with the raw chicken and marinate for at least one hour. Then you need to place some coconut oil into a large pan and put over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for five minutes or until brown.

The next step is to pour in the remaining marinade and add water, bringing it to the boil. After this, add the bay leaf, garlic, onions and peppercorn. Simmer over low heat for half an hour until the chicken is tender. 

To remove the acidic taste, add vinegar, sugar, salt and maple syrup and simmer for 10 minutes. Cook the sauce until it is thick and then remove the chicken from the pan and enjoy.


Finally, the last recipe we will discuss is one of the most popular edibles - cannabis brownies. They are a well-known way to consume cannabis and are available to purchase or make at home.

Ingredients needed:

  • 200 g dark chocolate, chips or chunks
  • 200 g cannabutter
  • 225 g sugar
  • 4 eggs, room temperature 
  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt

To make these delicious weed brownies you will need to preheat your oven to 160 Celcius and line a pan with cooking or greasing paper. Then put the cannabutter and dark chocolate into a glass bowl and put over a pot of hot water to melt both together. 

Once done, whisk together the sugar and eggs into the bowl. Then whisk in the flour, baking powder and salt. Once all whisked together you can pour the batter into the lined pan and smooth over evenly with a spatula.

The brownies will need cooking for around 25 minutes or until there is only a small jiggle in the middle of the pan. Finally, get the pan out of the oven and leave to cool in the fridge, before cutting into small squares and enjoying.
