November is the month when we remember to be grateful for what we have and spend time with the ones that we love.  It’s also a time to get excited about our favorite comfort foods.  What better holiday to indulge your munchie cravings? Instead of just hitting your bowl or taking dabs between meals, try adding some cannabis-infused ingredients to your Thanksgiving dinner.  

Cooking with Cannabis 👩‍🍳🔥

The most important factor in preparing your marijuana-infused dishes is found in extractions. Marijuana, like most plants, can be extracted into butter, oil, or alcohol and then added to your preferred recipes. Before you prepare your extraction there are two elements to consider:

  • THC/CBD Strength – Be sure to check the thc and cbd levels of your cannabis and the recipe requirements. Read all labels and test your cannabis mixture before use to gauge your experience.  Also consider that others will all have different tolerance levels. 
  • cannabis dinning
  • Decarb Your Cannabis – Decarboxylating marijuana before infusing in oil or butter helps to avoid low potency and a bad taste. This process allows the naturally occurring THCA found in raw flowers to convert to the reactive cannabinoid known as THC.  

  • Cannabis Basted Turkey

    Infusing your Thanksgiving turkey with cannabis is easier than you think. You simply replace the natural butter ingredients in the turkey recipe and basting process with your cannabis butter including the marinade in the pan.
