Traditional holiday foods are aromatic and packed with flavor, making them excellent dishes to infuse with cannabis. If you’re looking to celebrate the high holidays this year but aren’t sure what to bring to the table, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of easy-to-make, succulent dishes that will spice up your celebrations.
How to make cannabutter
A majority of cannabis recipes for the holidays make use of cannabis-infused butter, or cannabutter, to pack THC into the food.
Here’s how you can make your own cannabutter:
- Decarb the marijuana by baking it at 220 degrees for 20 minutes or until it turns brownish in color.
- Grind up the marijuana after it cools. Make sure the pieces are large enough where they won’t slip through a strainer.
- Cook a stick of butter in a saucepan on low heat.
- Add the decarbed marijuana when the butter liquifies. Cook for another 45 minutes.
- Let the mixture cool and pour it through a strainer to remove extra pieces of marijuana.
We recommend you use one cup of butter for every quarter ounce of cannabis.
There are also a variety of cannabutter alternatives if you prefer additional options when creating your cannabis recipe for holiday feasts. Understanding the process of creating a THC-infused agent can serve as inspiration when creating your own cannabutter alternative.
