The Kitchen - Recipes

While reading through The Kitchen posts here at Medical Edibles, you’ve probably collected several tempting culinary options, from basic brownies to gourmet recipes. You may also be looking for ways to improve other recipes, or simply curious about experimenting in general, with your own edible cooking and baking. If you’re ready to dive in and want to make your own edibles, there are several key secrets to getting delicious (and powerful) results every time. By heeding these important warnings, you’ll guarantee that the first time gets you results you can feel, instead of duds.

Don’t Use Too Much Flower

When you make your own cannabutter, you might have heard from friends that the more flower you use, the better. That is not true at all. You don’t want to go out and drop a bunch of money on flower, only to stuff it into a small cup of oil. Remember to use only one cup of flower per cup of oil. The oil can only absorb so many cannabinoids, so you’ll genuinely be wasting flower if you overdo it.

Don’t Turn Your Flower into Powder

When you grind up your flower to start the processes, some people think that the finer it’s ground, the better. It may seem counterintuitive, but keep it coarse. Just using a regular grinder – like you use when you’re smoking flower – will actually get you a perfect breakup for it. No need to get too fancy.

Don’t forget to De-Carb

When you make your butter, heat will release the THC. Flower right off the stem contains THCA, which, when heated, will release the THC we’re looking for. When making butter or cooking in general, this release will occur as well, but you’ll get the most bang for your buck if you activate it beforehand, in a process known as decarboxylating.

Decarboxylating is simpler than it sounds. Put your weed on a tray, put it in the oven on a low setting (somewhere between 150-240°F), and wait until the weed is perfectly crumbly. This will means it’s activated. You can also use a food dehydrator if you would like, or you can use flower straight from your vaporizer. Cannabis that has already been vaped is still activated and can be used for making butter right out of the vape, which is perfect.

Remember that THC has a Boiling Point

When cooking THC, you need to remember that it actually boils at around 314°F, so you don’t want to go too far above this temperature. Many online recipes will call for you to cook your creations at about 350°F, but don’t do it. You shouldn’t have to go over 340°F. If you cook your THC at too high a temperature, it will start to break down, leading to less potent edibles. So, be smart and cook it “slow-and-low”, so you’re not regretting it later.

Think Savory

If you don’t want to make your own edibles out of fear that they will taste too much like the actual plant, then try to mask that taste with flavors that pair with or cover it. Savory flavors will always work best, as opposed to sweet, but a combination of sweet and salty works also, if you’re making cookies or brownies. If you do opt for something sweet, both caramel and chocolate can pair well with cannabis, as far as taste goes, so long as you favor the salty ingredients more than the sweet. It’s very hard to make it so that you don’t taste any cannabis in your edibles whatsoever, but staying away from fruity or ultra-sweet flavors is an important first step when you want to know how to make marijuana edibles taste great.

Consider Potency

You’re going to want to try your butter or oils before you do any cooking. Do the math, to figure out how much oil you think will end up in one serving, and give it a whirl, before you start cooking. You may find out that you need to use more or less than your initial guess because there are so many factors in the infusing process that could throw off your calculations.

If you do want to make your creations more potent, consider using sunflower lecithin. This substance makes fats bond together better, and it is thought to make our bodies break down more of the fatty substance that is THC, yielding stronger effects. On the flip side, If you want to make sure that these aren’t too extreme, consider throwing in a little CBD oil. CBD oil boils at a much higher point than THC, so using it instead can help keep friends from getting too out of their mind or too anxious.

While cooking and baking both require a bit of precision, to get the science of solid results down, being aware of these simpler tips will help you save time and money. At the same time, you’ll be able to craft some truly satisfying dishes, with an added bonus of some sweet relaxation after.


The Kitchen - Recipes

Thanks to the growing recreational legality of cannabis, it’s much easier to get your hands on a variety of different edibles. There are brands adding THC to products you may have never thought of as edibles possibilities, and the market has grown leaps and bounds from the classic brownie. While it may be fun to try all of these products, for many, the real enjoyment comes from creating their own. Several benevolent THC chefs have made this even easier, by sharing their top marijuana recipes with their subscribers.

The Youtuber Njchef is one such talented cannabis recipe creator, sharing his recipes in instructional videos. His channel also includes reviews of various cannabis products that give you a taste of what’s currently on the market. He’s got some great recipes for marijuana edibles posted to his channel, and he takes you step-by-step through the method behind each one, so you won’t be left in the dark.

To be able to cook with cannabis as much as he does, Njchef makes use of a special product called the Magical Butter Machine, which helps him make his infusions. This simple product gives you the oils or butter you need to make a lot of meals, but it’s certainly not the only way. There are loads of online recipes for Cannabutter or THC oil, which you can use to create the butter or oil used in his recipes if you don’t have this machine. However, it’s definitely a tool that will make your life easier, if you plan on cooking with cannabis as often as Njchef is.

Once you’ve got your gear prepped and ready to go, here are some delicious recipes to get your canna cooking adventure started:

Tennessee Fire Fried Chicken and Waffles

This is a recipe for the spice fans out there. This is meant to be a pretty fiery recipe, starting with his oil-based sauce, but if you’re not a spice person, Njchef ensures that this will work and taste great without the cayenne he uses for an extra kick. After explaining how to make the chicken, he moves on to the waffles, which he advises using your THC-infused oils or cannabutter in, to really get that stony kick. At the end of this recipe, you’re left with a sweet-and-spicy meal that can be served amongst your friends, for a new (and fun) experience. Some southern barbeque with a little bit of cannabis? Now that’s something you don’t often get from marijuana recipes.

Butterfly Shrimp Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette

For this recipe, Njchef assures his audience that this recipe is hard to screw up (which is especially great, if you’re new to cooking). Starting with a quart of blueberries, he then adds in the balsamic vinegar, followed by the sugar. He suggests mixing those ingredients together, before squeezing in some lemon and (slowly) adding your infused oil. The lemon thickens everything up together nicely, to achieve the consistency you’re looking for in a dressing.

From this point, Njchef takes you through his order of adding the vegetables and other oils and seasonings, and, of course, the infused vinaigrette, before adding your shrimp and onion on top. This is a really colorful meal that you can make for yourself or for a party, and it’s a great way for marijuana edibles to move you into that state of THC relaxation, over an easygoing dinner.

Canna-Pesto Infusion

This simple pesto recipe is one you can keep and use as a great base for many different dishes. For those Italian food fans, this can definitely be useful to have around, if you want to entertain friends during a non-traditional pasta dinner. This recipe stays in the blender, so it’s incredibly easy.

You start with the olive oil and then add as much garlic as you’d like (based on your personal preferences). After blending these two ingredients together, it’s time for the basil. Because you’re using a lot of oil – both olive oil and infused oil – you may want to add a decent amount of salt, to ensure you end up with an excellent balance, rather than a strong oil taste. As always, you want to add the oil slowly, so that you get all of the THC. Once completed, you’ve got a pesto that you can use for all of your meals, sandwiches, and snacks. If you’re really feeling adventurous, Njchef even has a video for gnocchi marijuana recipes, in which he uses this pesto (if you need a little gourmet inspiration).

Home cooking videos are definitely changing, and these simple recipes provide a great starting point if you’re someone who appreciates good cuisine, as well as good cannabis. In addition to YouTube, you can follow Njchef on Twitter, for more cannabis cooking adventure inspiration, or keep reading along with Medical Edibles’ The Kitchen, for regular videos and recipes for a stony, delicious time.

If you love marijuana and you love food, edibles are obviously the right choice for you. However, while many edibles come in a variety of baked goods – including the infamous weed brownie – what do you do if you don’t particularly have a sweet tooth for chocolate?


Don’t worry, my fruity friend; there’s a new trend in the Cannabis community that caters to those that love a variety of fruit-infused flavors. In fact, there’s more than one way to get your fruity fix. In this post, we’re going to focus on teaching you how to make cannabis gummy bears in the flavors that you truly love.


Of all the gummy candies available on the market, gummy bears reign supreme. Thanks to this helpful cannabis gummy bears recipe, you can find your way to gummy heaven, with a sack full of custom flavors and colors. Each chewy candy has a personalized dose of cannabinoids, making microdosing easy, for those who may take their medical edibles at a slower pace than what’s offered at their local dispensary. In this way, you can explore what your body can and can’t handle, and even build up your threshold, one tasty candy at a time.

Create Customized Cannabis Gummy Treats

This healthy gummy recipe is a delicious way to get some of those fruit cravings covered, as well as enjoying your THC for the day, in one swift snack. These are easy to make, and you will quickly master the process if you follow the simple steps. To get started, collect the items you’ll need.


Tools You’ll Need:

  • Gummy molds
  • A medium saucepan
  • A whisk
  • A syringe or droplet tool
  • Plastic food wrap

Cannabis Training University - Master Certification

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Cannabis tincture of your choice (You can use high-THC/CBD, or a mixture of both.)
  • 5-6 cups of 100% fruit juice (orange or pineapple, for example)
  • 4 tablespoons of gelatin powder
  • 3 tablespoons of honey, for a natural sweetener

How to Make Cannabis Gummy Bears in 6 Easy Steps

1. Pour the fruit juice of your choice into the medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and gently warm, continuously stirring the liquid while it warms. You only want it to get warm, not boiling hot. The gelatin doesn’t work if things get too hot.Also, the cannabinoids and terpenes can start to degrade with too much heat.  
2. Add your preferred amount of tincture and mix thoroughly. Note: You will need to do some calculating here. The quantity of tincture depends on how strong it was made in the first place. Usually, three or four teaspoons will do, but this will vary, depending on the effect you wish to have when you eat your gummy bears. Using good-quality bud will certainly result in a different product than a tincture made with lower-quality marijuana.
3. Whisk continuously, as you slowly add the gelatin to the fruit and THC mixture. Gelatin is notorious for creating lumps in the mixture if you add it too quickly, so take your time.
4. Add honey one tablespoon at a time, and taste as you go. You can opt for your preferred sweetness, to create candies with your desired flavor and taste.
5. Use the syringe or your droplet to fill the molds. This is much cleaner than trying to pour or spoon the mix into the tiny gummy bear molds, and you’ll avoid making a mess.
6. Finish by refrigerating the gummy bear molds for 3-4 hours. After they have set, you’ll be able to remove them and enjoy (with caution). Be sure to package your treats with a green cross, to avoid mix-ups with family and friends.

Things to Note, Before Making Gummy Bear Edibles

As mentioned above, you’ll need either a cannabis tincture or CBD oil to achieve your desired results. If you’re not too familiar with marijuana products, you can learn more about how to make your own tincture. You can also learn about the benefits of CBD oil, to find out more about how your cannabis gummy bears recipe can be a boost for good health.

Last but not least, depending on your desired results, the amounts you add to your mixture may vary. We’ve discussed THC in edibles before, so this article about creating the perfect weed brownie is great to reference when it comes to getting your dosage right. If your product comes from a dispensary, you can also check the packaging for a conversion chart.

Get to Cooking

As you can see, crafting your own edible marijuana gummy bears is super simple – probably one of the easiest edible recipes available. Even if you’re a beginner, you can try this recipe and experience successful, tasty results.

Impress Your Stoner Friends with a Full-Couse Meal of Cannabis-Infused Dishes

Do you host dinner parties for your friends that typically consist of a lot of time, planning, and stress? So much so that you end up taking a smoke break just about every hour, while preparing for the big event? And when your stoner friends finally show up, do they even have an appetite? Or do they also have to take a smoke break themselves, to even want to eat anything?

If any or all of these scenarios sound familiar, we have great news for you: we can help you reduce your stress and actually make your dinner parties enjoyable, from start to finish. By taking the time to create your own custom stoner cookbook – full of recipes that will not only get you high but will also satisfy your hunger – you’ll be on your way to host or hostess of the year. If you and your friends prefer edibles to smoking, this post is for you.

Cooking with THC Just Got Easier

You might be a bit apprehensive when it comes to creating visually appealing and tasty cannabis recipes, but cooking with THC doesn’t have to be difficult – especially when you curate your cookbook of go-to recipes in advance.

Here are several delicious recipes to start your cookbook, for a knockout Mexican-themed dinner party! Each recipe has a link to the source, so feel free to print out your favorite pieces and paste them into your personalized stoner scrapbook.

Start the Dinner with an Appetizer: Easy, Cheesy, Canna-Queso Dip!

Think of your group of friends: is there a single person who doesn’t love queso and chips? This is the perfect way to start your dinner party off on the right note.

You can present a big bowl of this cheesy goodness with a side of crunchy, salty chips, to satisfy everyone’s fly-by munchies, while moving around the room and mingling. This way, your guests don’t feel tied to the table, and they’ll start to feel that glorious body high before the main courses even come out!

Serve Up a Side Salad

Side salads are a great way to fit some nutritious foods into your meal, without having to do a lot of work. Although the lettuce obviously isn’t infused with marijuana ingredients, you can still cook with THC by creating an avocado-cannabis-infused vinaigrette to pour on top of your tasty side salad.

The recipe is super simple, too! This is a delicious dressing to add to your meal, especially for a Mexican food palette.

Two Main Dishes to Choose From

For a Mexican-themed dinner night, there are two main dishes that you simply can’t go wrong with: tacos and enchiladas.

A Dinner Party Hit: Pot Tacos!

Again, who doesn’t love tacos? Street tacos are a go-to when you have the munchies, so what could be better than tacos that give you the munchies? Simply add all the fixin’s on the side, and these pot tacos will have your dinner guests coming back for more.

Cannabis Chicken Enchiladas

Another favorite Mexican food dish is enchiladas. You can create a delectable chicken dish, complete with sauce, cheese, cilantro—and don’t forget the cannabis! This enchilada recipe will literally knock everyone off their feet.

Delectable Dessert: 5x “Baked” Flan

To keep the festive dinner theme going, you can stick to a classic Mexican dessert as well. Flan is already tasty, but it’s even better when infused with marijuana and baked five times. By the time you finish one serving, you’ll feel just as baked as your dessert, if not more.

If you don’t have any other cannabis-infused foods in your dinner line up, this can also be a stand-alone treat, as it contains regular cannabis, activated cannabis, kief, rosin chips, and infused coconut oil, to create an extra-potent dessert dish. Not in the mood for flan? For a more traditional end to the night, you can always serve up a batch of gooey brownies, which are the perfect way to wind down a fun night with friends.

With these linked recipes, you can start printing, cutting, and pasting your way to your very own custom stoner cookbook. The next dinner party you host will be stress-free and tasty, and you might even find yourself with some yummy leftovers, for a second round of relaxing.

If you’re an edibles fan, you know that there’s one go-to cannabis treat that everyone craves: marijuana brownies!

Most people shovel out the money for a great cannabutter brownie, but little do many people know, they are pretty simple to make at home, in your very own kitchen!

If you’re a regular smoker or would like to try your hand at homemade marijuana edible snacks, this article is for you!

We’re here to discuss the best tips and tricks to baking your best marijuana brownies yet.

The Secret is in the Butter!

If you’re thinking that making a bomb brownie that will have you baked is as simple as sprinkling a few nugs into your batter, you’re sadly mistaken.

The secret to making marijuana brownies that really deliver is extracting the cannabutter from your bud.

Not only will this help to reserve the yummy, chocolatey taste of the brownie mix, but you won’t have to chew on your cannabis to get that warm, fuzzy effect.

Where Can I Get Cannabutter for My Brownies?

There are many ways to craft your own cannabutter, but since this is a beginner’s guide, we’re going to make it simple for you to understand and execute.

You can cut out the hassle of separating the canna oil from your actual weed, by purchasing a batch of either the oil or the cannabutter from your local dispensary.

Either way, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get your hands on this important ingredient for your marijuana brownies.

Get Your Ratios Right!

One thing that can really mess up your cannabutter brownies is your ratios and percentages being incorrect.

This can throw off the strength of your brownies, by either making them way too strong, or disappointingly weak.

For example, let’s say you’re using your grandma’s tried-and-true brownie recipe that calls for a third of a cup of oil. You might assume that it’s easy enough to swap that out with a third of a cup of canna oil.

However, if you do that without understanding the potency of canna oil, you won’t be able to measure how much THC is in each brownie.

  • Is it Easy to Understand THC Potency and Ratios?

When you’ve taken the time to throw on your chef hat and apron, you expect brownies fresh out the oven that are going to give you the results that you really want.

You can ensure your brownies are a hit – and that they hit you the 
right way – by following a simple dosage guideline.

If you’re neither a baker nor a cannabis connoisseur, this part of making your marijuana brownies may scare you off. There’s no need to be frightened, when you have the internet on your side!

You can easily calculate the potency of your potential recipe with an 
online calculator.

  • Don’t Cook Your Brownies Over 350F

If you’re reading a recipe online that suggests preheating your oven to 420⁰F (as ironic as that might be), you should bypass that advice.

Any recipe that calls for 350⁰F or more will throw off the potency of your brownies. Temperatures over 340⁰F begin to degrade the properties of THC.

After you’ve taken the time to measure your canna oil and its potency, the last thing you want to do is completely destroy its THC properties.

How Long Should I Bake My Brownies?

As with any other recipe that calls for basic baking and cooking skills, crafting the perfect cannabutter brownies takes a certain level of skill and science.

Depending on the size of your batch, your cooking times could vary.

Just remember, keep your temperature below 350⁰F; slow and steady wins the race!

Once your cannabutter brownies are finished, be sure to share the love (but only with those who want the effects of a marijuana brownie).

label your edibles here, to let everyone know how great of a baker you are!

The Kitchen - Recipes
Making cannabutter is relatively easy, but it’s what you do with it afterward that really matters. Many people use cannabutter for medical reasons, similar to how CBD oil is used, but others enjoy it recreationally. For example, you can put it on top of pasta or add it to any meal that calls for butter. If you really want to get crafty in the kitchen, you can make your own edibles and use cannabutter as a substitute for the butter you would normally use. Follow the three easy cannabutter recipes below to ensure sure you get the best edibles possible without having to get too fancy or complicated in the process.

Classic Marijuana Brownies

Infused Eats supplied this cannabutter recipe for the classic marijuana brownies that come to mind when anyone mentions edibles. If you haven’t already made your cannabutter, this recipe will also cover that process, so fear not if you’re new to using cannabis in the kitchen. It’s a two-hour process to make cannabutter from their recipe, but you can get right to the brownie part if you already have the butter waiting.

This easy cannabutter recipe starts with heating the cannabutter and then mixing in all the ingredients while it’s still hot. Next, vigorously beat in the eggs, one at a time, and continue beating the mixture until it’s smooth. (It won’t be totally smooth with the nuts in there, but you get the gist.) After baking them for 30 minutes, take them out, and you’ll have 12 servings to share at a safe gathering of consenting adults who want to try your homemade edibles (in a state where it’s recreationally legal to do so).

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

The guys at Original Weed Recipes are responsible for this classic chocolate chip cookie that takes cannabutter cookies to a whole ‘nother level. This easy cannabutter recipe is also relatively simple to whip up.

For this gooey confection, begin by combining the soft white ingredients first, and then mix in the good stuff: the cannabutter, the sugar, and the brown sugar. For this recipe, it’s recommended to use a mixer, but if you’ve got a strong arm, which you might after beating that last recipe, you may be fine using a spoon. This recipe also comes with a helpful video, so you aren’t left in the dust if, for some reason, the words on the page don’t make sense to you or you’re just more of a visual person.

Smokin’ Mac ‘n Cheese

With this mac ‘n cheese recipe from the people at the Cannabist, we’re switching from sweet to savory. This recipe is a perfect entrée and provides some great leftovers, too. The process gets a bit more complicated than it was with the baked goods, but it’s easy to follow. And, it will give you an opportunity to make an impressive meal for you and your friends while cooking up a cannabutter recipe, which makes the home-dining experience a bit more entertaining.

Aside from the five tablespoons of cannabutter in the cheese sauce, the recipe is similar to your usual mac ‘n cheese recipe. Bake the cheesy mixture in the oven for about 30 minutes. While it’s in there, you’ve got another easy yet fancy task: make some small onion rings, to go on top. (This, in my opinion, pairs well with the cannabis flavor from the cannabutter in the sauce). Every ingredient here screams delicious, so this dish will be just as much about savoring flavors as it is about enjoying the effects.

Remember, if you have leftovers from these easy cannabutter recipes, you’ll want to keep them safe from unsuspecting fridge thieves. Brands that offer edibles label them to prevent an accidental overdose, so you might want to create a similar notation or marking on the container you keep your leftovers in. It might seem like fun and games when someone accidentally eats an edible, but it can be serious for those who have anxiety or panic disorders triggered by high amounts of THC.

Here’s to putting that cannabutter to good use with good food and good friends while still staying safe in the process.

Edible cannabis recipes have significantly stepped up into valid gustatory delights. Many packaged creations are already at the forefront, from gummy candies to infused smoothies, offering multiple levels of effects. However, going beyond sweet treats and into delectable entrées is an easy addition to your elevated menu.

Now, you can create gourmet edibles recipes you never knew you could make. Read on for some simple formulas you can prepare at home that will certainly impress.

Make the Oil First

Many gourmet edibles recipes require some type of olive or vegetable oil. These oils have fat molecules that readily absorb the marijuana THC. This is why some edible recipes with coconut oil have become popular, as this oil is higher in fat (good fat that is).

So, before you get up to your elbows in Rachel Ray or Bobby Flay creations, start by making your cannabis oil.

First, grind your herb down (the amount is up to you), spread it on a cookie sheet, and bake at 240°F for 30-40 minutes, before grinding it down in a food processor. Next, select olive, coconut, or canola oil, as your base. Once these first two steps are completed, combine the oil and herb (2 cups of oil: 1-1.5 ounces of ground herb). Carefully pour the mix into a slow cooker, making sure nothing sticks to the sides, and heat on low for 3 hours. Then, let the mix then cool for 5-8 hours. Place a cheesecloth over a glass bowl, and push an indent into the middle, while securing with a rubber band around the bowl edge. After the mix has cooled, slowly pour the cooking oil into the cheesecloth, to strain it. Squeeze the excess oil out of the cheesecloth and discard the cloth.

Your canna oil is now ready to cook with. Here are some delectable base recipes, beyond the realm of ganja brownies, to get you started:

Spaghetti Squash and Veggie Meatballs w/Cannabis Infused Marinara

This delightful take on Italian fare is easy on the digestive system while soothing the mind at the same time.

Squash Prep:

  1. Cut the squash into 4 or 5 thick rings, massage the insides with cannabis oil, and roast at 400°F for 45 minutes.
  2. Remove from the oven, let cool, remove the skins, and extract the spaghetti-like strands from each ring into a bowl.

Sauce and Veggie Balls Prep:

  1. Combine 1/4 of a cup of cannabis oil with vegetarian meatballs (found at supermarkets or health food stores), diced garlic, basil, and salt and pepper (to taste) into a sauce pot/
  2. Sauté for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add two cans of tomato paste and one can of tomato sauce.
  4. Cook on low for 45 minutes.
  5. Add additional spices to taste.

Pour the sauce and veggie balls over your spaghetti squash, and serve with grated cheese.

Cheddar Burgers with Sautéed Bacon and Shallots

This recipe is fast, simple, and gourmet (and can also be adapted for vegetarians). It is one of many savory edibles recipes that work quite well with coconut oil.

  1. Mix beef or vegetarian chop meat with 1 egg, ½ cup cheddar cheese, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, kosher salt, ground black pepper, and two tablespoons of cannabis oil.
  2. Form the mixture into palm-sized patties and bake on a greased cookie sheet at 400°F for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Add to your favorite gourmet bread roll, then top with sautéed bacon or vegetarian bacon, shallots, and any other condiments you enjoy.

Tuscan White Bean and Kale Soup

Whether in the thick of winter or the start of spring, Tuscan White Bean and Kale Soup is one of those hearty, gourmet edibles dishes that will transport you to another realm.

  • ¼ cup cannabis oil*
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 diced carrots
  • 1 diced potato
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cloves pressed garlic
  • 2 cans white cannellini beans
  • 2 bunches kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
  • 64 oz. good quality, low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
  • Kosher Salt
  • Ground black pepper

*As far as edible recipes with coconut oil, using coconut oil in this particular recipe will yield a slightly sweeter taste.

In a soup pot, sautéé cannabis oil, garlic, carrots, onion, potatoes, carrots, kale, bay leaves and beans for 10 minutes. Add chicken or vegetable stock, bring to a boil, and then let simmer for 45 minutes, before serving. Voila!

Gourmet edibles recipes using infused cannabis oil may sound complex at first, but you will soon find that, not only are they easy to prepare, but they can also take your edibles experience to a new, dare we say more sophisticated, level. Using these recipes and beyond, you will no doubt impress guests seeking a delicious meal full of healthy ingredients, while still enjoying the benefits of marijuana edibles. Afterward, be sure to continue the feast with sweet desserts, to round out the night in a place of joy and relaxation.
