Top 3 Ways to Infuse Your Danksgiving Feast

The holidays are just around the corner, and if your friends and family are cannabis connoisseurs like yourself, you may be looking at ways to infuse your feast. If so, you will be happy to know that there are many different ways that you can incorporate cannabis into your Danksgiving festivities. Not only are these tips and tricks for infusion great for the holiday season they will work with almost any food all the year through.

Cannabutter Canna be Your Best Friend

One of the most common ways of infusing foods is simply substituting butter for cannabis-infused butter or adding it to the recipe. Making cannabis-infused butter is simple to do at home. If you are not familiar with the process, you can check out a quick method that requires no special tools here. With cannabutter on hand infusing your holiday meal is easier than ever. Just add some to your mashed potatoes instead of regular butter, top off your sweet potatoes with cannabis-infused butter, or you can even pack the inside of the skin of your turkey with cannabis-infused butter and allow it to soak into the meat while cooking. If the recipe calls for butter, you can just replace it with cannabutter for an easy cannabis-infused danksgiving meal.

Oil it Up and Call it a Day

Just like butter, there are many recipes that we love to enjoy around the holiday seasons that call for oil. Whether is oil to sauté something or oil in a recipe for your favorite dessert if you have cannabis infused coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil on hand you can just substitute your canna oil instead of using plain boring oil! Some of my favorite ways to use this method of infusion is to use canna oil in my turtle brownie recipe and basting the turkey throughout its cooking cycle. If you’re not sure how to make cannabis oil to use in recipes check out the guide here.

A Some Bud to the Salad- Be Sure to Decarb First

Of course, there is always the method of merely adding fresh bud to your recipes. While this isn’t going to create the best texture in many foods if you are having a salad pre-dinner aside from the salad in your bowl to toke adding fresh cannabis leaves or decarbed cannabis buds ground up with perhaps some extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top would make a great addition. Be sure that your cannabis is decarbed however otherwise the individual enjoying the salad isn’t going to get the effects they might expect! To learn more about decarbing check out this article!
These are just three simple ways to infuse the feast. Do you have a favorite way to infuse your holiday dinners or foods throughout the year? Do you have tools or products that you can’t live without when it comes to infusion? If so, let us know in the comments below!

Tea Service

The Dankest Cannabis Tea Recipes

There are many different methods of absorbing cannabis.

You can smoke it, vape it, eat it, lotion up, or drink it. Smoking weed is not an option that is available for everyone. Sometimes, it is a personal choice to not smoke. Sometimes smell becomes an issue making smoking less than ideal.
There are plenty of people on a strict diet. And most cannabis infused medibles come in the form of candies and sweet treats. But the cannabis market is adjusting, and there are new products coming out tailored to specialized consumers.
There are THC and CBD infused lotions and creams available to help alleviate muscle pain and spasms. But it doesn’t get people very high, unless you stack micro doses. And then there’s cannabis tea. People have been making some form of cannabis tea for as long as we have records.

How to Make Bhang Tea

It is relatively simple to make cannabis tea. This technique is known as bhang, and has been utilized for thousands of years in India. Anyone can make a nice cup of warm relaxing cannabis tea. Follow these steps, and you too can extract the sweetness and high from cannabis.

A few ingredients you will need are:

1. 3 cups of water
2. 2 tablespoons of butter (regular or cannabis butter)
3. 1 – 3 grams of cannabis (per serving)
4. A strainer and mug
5. Optional: 1 tea bag of your favorite tea (Chai, Peppermint, Chamomile, etc.)
6. Optional: Milk, sugar or honey for taste.
Please keep in mind that marijuana tea takes up to 45 minutes – 1 hour for the full effects to kick in. When taking cannabis edibles (medibles), the high sets in slowly. And cannabis tea reacts in the same slow manner as medibles. But the high stays in the body for a lot longer than smoking a bowl.

Step-By-Step Instructions for Creating Cannabis Tea

cannabis tea
1. First, figure out how much tea to make. About 1 – 3 grams of cannabis is per serving. If you are using low grade weed, you may need to grind up more than 3 grams. The type of marijuana you use depends on the effects you’re after. But no matter which strain you choose, keep in mind that sativas are best for daytime use, and indicas are best for evening and nighttime use.
2. Grind the weed. It is easier to extract THC from cannabis buds once the material is finely broken up. You can leave in stems, leaves and shake. After all, you’ll be straining all of the plant material in the end. What you’re after is the juice.
3. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a small pan. Keep your stovetop temperature on 8 out of 10. A medium high boiling temperature.
4. While the water is boiling, add 2 tablespoons of butter or cannabutter. The THC in marijuana is only fat soluble. The reason you need to use butter at this point is to bind with the THC. Don’t worry, the butter taste is not in the final product. Using cannabutter instead of regular butter makes your product more potent. But don’t add more than 2 tablespoons per serving of whatever butter because the tea will affect the flavor.
5. Stir in ground cannabis. Keep your temperature on medium high. Stir frequently to keep the material from clumping, burning and/or boiling over. It is ok to add more water if too much evaporates.
6. Boil for at least 45 minutes. Some people boil their cannabis for 5 minutes. Others boil their cannabis for an hour. But the sweet spot seems to be at 45 minutes for maximum THC extraction. Remember, keep stirring to prevent clumping, burning and boiling over. Don’t set it and forget it.

7. After 45 minutes, strain the marijuana chunks out.

Use your strainer to separate your cannabis tea into a mug. If you were making enough for multiple servings, then of course use multiple mugs. Be careful, the water is extremely hot.

Optional: Add other tea packets

Adding tea packets like chamomile or peppermint tea are a great way to improve the overall flavor. Let it steep with your cannabis tea for a few minutes. Follow the directions from your tea packet to get the best results. And of course, use your freshly made cannabis tea instead of regular water. You can also add honey or milk with your tea to bring out a sweeter taste.
Chai Tea is another tasty variant for cannabis tea. Any off the shelf Chai Tea brand should mix well with Cannabis tea. Just let it steep for a few minutes, or follow the directions on the box. Others have recommended honey; it adds a sweet and spicy kick.

Ready-Made Cannabis Tea

Now-a-days, you can buy already made tea from many dispensaries. One type of ready-made tea is called Subtle Tea. This tea comes in tea bags and it tastes like any other green tea. But they have 40 mg of THC in each serving. You will feel buzzed after drinking a single serving.
Another brand of ready-made cannabis tea is, Sarah’s Medicated Teas. This tea can only be bought online and their contact information can be found on their Facebook page. Sarah’s Medicated Tea’s come in a variety of flavors and dosages. Their different teas alleviate symptoms like joint pain, migraines, nausea, etc.
I saved the best for last, Pot-O-Coffee. This company sells cannabis infused coffee, coco and tea. They use the freshest cannabis buds along with a solvent free extraction process to create ultra-clean THC concentrates. When it comes to their CBD infused products, Pot-O-Coffee uses 99%+ pure Isodiol CBD crystals. Their CBD products are THC free and made with non-GMO ingredients.

Cannabis Infused Drinks Are Big Trend

The Many Faces of Cannabis Drinks

Welcome to the future of cannabis drinks! The legalization of marijuana is encouraging many people to create their own products like edibles and drinks. Since cannabis is a billion-dollar cannabis industry, it provides a massive incentive to join in the revolution.

Currently, there are multiple ways to consume cannabis. Before, cannabis was mainly smoked using paper or eaten via brownies or Krispy treats. But now, it can be smoked, vaped, eaten and drank.

In this article, we’ll be covering the different variations of cannabis drinks like coffee, tea, juice and wine. And we mention the companies that worked hard to create the best versions of mainstream beverages like The Fairwinds and Dixie Elixirs.

Here are the top rundowns of the marijuana beverage market.

Coffee, Pop, Tonic and Juice Oh My!

1.      Catapult Coffee Pods

A Keurig compatible coffee pod that has 10 mg of THC and coffee. It was made from a Washington based company. The pods are $10 per piece and currently only available in Washington state. Waking up to the fresh smell of coffee and weed is the new best part of waking up.

2.      Catapult Hot Cocoa

Not everyone is a coffee drinker and that’s ok. The Fairwinds company created Catapult Hot Cocoa mix. They use all natural ingredients and include 10 mg of THC per serving. Their Hot Cocoa packet comes in a resealable bag. If 10 mg seems too much, pour half to give yourself a 5mg dose and save the rest for later.

3.      Legal by Mirth Provisions

During a hot summer day, drinking an infused cold tonic is incredibly refreshing. Legal is a line of cannabis-infused cold tonics. Legal comes in a variety of flavors made from locally grown ingredients. These flavors are cherry, lemon ginger and pomegranate. Each tasty tonic is infused with 20 mg of THC. They are priced at $10-$15 per bottle.

4.      Lift by Dixie Elixirs

Whenever you need a boost of energy to get through the day, try a Lift. This tasty drink is designed to give a boost of energy with the added effect of THC. Within their one shot bottle, Lift is infused with 10 mg of THC. Instead of drinking a redbull, take a shot of Lift instead.

5.      Canna Cola

Finally, a cannabis infused soda pop. These refreshing fizzy drinks come in a variety of flavors like Orange Kush and Grape Ape. After work kick up your feet and grab a cold one.

But Wait, There’s More

6.      Cannabis Quencher

In the mood for a lemonade or a strawberry lemonade? Try Cannabis Quencher. It’s made by The Venice Company Cookie Company in Los Angeles. Each bottle is infused with different amounts of THC and CBD.

For example, their Lemonade Cannabis Quencher Sips offer 25 mg of THC. Their Strawberry Lemonade Cannabis Quencher comes with 200 mg of THC. They also offer CBD and THC combinations as well as just CBD options.

7.      Subtle Tea by The Venice Cookie Company

On a chilly day, sit back and sip on a little green tea. Another product made by The Venice Cookie Company, their tea bags are infused with 40 mg of THC. It tastes like any other green tea, with the added effects of feeling buzzed.

8.      CannaPunch

The CannaPunch juice with pump you up because each bottle is infused with 151 mg of THC! This non-carbonated drink is made from all-natural ingredients and is gluten-free and soy-free. It’s also free of corn syrup and made from the highest quality of Colorado cannabis. Tastes like blue raspberry and pineapple mango. Even though its non-carbonated, it will definitely leave you feeling fizzy.

9.      Zasp

Looking for an all natural drink? Zasp is a cannabis-infused beverage made from organically grown cannabis. It comes in a variety of flavors. These are black-cherry, tangerine, tropical punch and strawberry lemonade. Zasp drinks are now infused with your choice of 30mg, 80mg, 120mg and 240mg amounts of THC.

Cannabis Shots and Wines

10.   Quigley’s Cannabis Shots

The shot that gets you insta-high. Quigley’s is a product from Colorado. In each 2 fl oz contains 10 mg of THC. The 2 fl oz is sold for $6 each. The 50 mg version costs $15. If you buy the 50 mg version, think of it like drinking a shot of alcohol. You’re not supposed to drink the bottle. You fill up a little cup with your dose, site back and enjoy the long lasting insta-high.

11.   Know Label

For the wine and weed connoisseur, this one is for you. Know Label is a cannabis infused wine beverage from California. Rock singer and cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge is the creator of Know Label.

Melissa couldn’t smoke or vape, and edibles weren’t her thing. Her cannabis-wine mix seemed to be the next best way for her to consume. Each bottle comes with an expensive price tag ($140 minimum). But the taste and high is worth every penny.

This is what has developed in just a few years of legalization. Just imagine the drinks that people will be able to come up with in the future. I for one am excited to see what the future holds.

Top 10 Interesting Marijuana Facts

Top 10 Interesting Marijuana Facts

Here are the most interesting marijuana facts I know.

As an avid cannabis consumer, I am always finding new info about weed. Much of the information comes during smoking sessions with friends or interviewees. The hard part is organizing the information into a cohesive thought after the high subsides. But here is my list of interesting marijuana facts. There is no specific order so the tenth entry is just as interesting to me as the first.

  1. It’s physically impossible to overdose on THC

Life is meaningless and death approaches. This realization makes you decide to end it on a high note. You buy 1000 joints and a couple lighters, determined to end it all. Things begin by lighting up the first joint and before you reach the end of your stash, one of two things will happen.
After a few joints, you will either pass out before getting to the end or you will die from carbon monoxide poisoning. The carbon monoxide is created by burning the stems and leaf but would give a pounding headache long before becoming dangerous. The THC and other psychoactive elements have virtually no chance of being the cause of death.
You would need to smoke 40,0000 times the average amount of weed within a few minutes to get a lethal dose. That’s one record even Michael Phelps can’t get close to approaching, much less breaking.

  1. Weed started online commerce

In 1971, Stanford University housed the latest and greatest computer system. The machine was part of a new generation of connected computers. Students at Stanford were able to use a basic e-mail network called Arpanet to effectively send and receive text messages. But the 70’s were a time of reckless abandon, wild ideas, and advancing technologies.
It only took a few months before some inspired soul took the next logical step in networking. Several students used their accounts at the university’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory to buy some weed from a fellow student. This drug deal was the world’s first e-commerce transaction and proved the validity of the concept.

  1. Tupac was smoked

We all have that one friend who would get the mortician high if they were cremated. Tupac was that and a whole lot more. On top of being a master weed smoker, he was an entrepreneur, musician, poet, thug and straight up bad ass. But that didn’t stop a hail of bullets from ending his life prematurely.
After Tupac died, he had one final request of his friends. The crew had some misgivings but eventually decided it was the best way to honor his memory. They mixed his ashes with some of the best weed the world had to offer and smoked it. They can probably still feel the buzz….

  1. Rates of obesity are 33% lower in cannabis users

Potheads are supposed to be craven munchies hounds hell bent on emptying fridges right? Well, science disagrees with that old stereotype. Studies have shown that cannabis cuts the risk of obesity by about a third. They believe the benefit is partly due to how weed helps regulate blood sugars.
The ability to regulate blood-sugars has lead scientists to investigate. Several studies are looking into using marijuana to treat Type 2 Diabetes. Marijuana doesn’t cure diabetes though…

  1. Prohibition costs the US $17.5 billion each year

There are a lot of drugs that the government doesn’t want people getting their hands on. If every drug were legalized today, the U.S. would save $41.3 billion annually. It would also pretty much empty the overpopulated prisons that proliferate the ‘land of the free’.
Other countries have done it with positive results. Portugal managed to cut drug abuse in half less than 10 years after decriminalizing all drugs. America could as well if the head of the Justice Department wasn’t heavily invested in growing the prison population.

  1. California and Colorado bring in over 75% of all cannabis sales

America loves its weed more than ever. Since 1996, 30 states and the District of Columbia have established some form of legalized marijuana. There are seven states that go so far as to allow recreational marijuana.
California and Colorado make up the bulk of the American market. Together they dominate recreational and medical marijuana to the tune of almost $4 billion a year. That is more than all the other states combined…

  1. There are 111 different cannabinoids in cannabis

Cannabinoids are a group of chemicals found in the cannabis plant and in our own bodies. THC and CBD are the most common cannabinoids but there are several versions of each. As the plant goes through its lifecycle, the concentrations and chemical properties of the cannabinoids change.
THC and CBD are the prize children of the cannabinoid world, but they’re not the only compounds in ganja. Cannabinoids like CBN and CBG are known to have their own medicinal effects. Imagine what secrets the other 108 hold…

  1. THC can stay in your system for longer than 27 days

THC binds to fat cells in the body. So the amount of time THC stays in your system mostly depends on your metabolism. Sedentary and obese users retain THC in their bodies for a significantly longer time than thin or active users.
But consumption levels also matter. Some studies show that average sized, regular marijuana users retain THC metabolites in their systems for an average of 27 days. Occasional smokers can expect that number drops to 10 days. But heavy-set, high-use consumers might fail a test over 30 days after consuming.

  1. Marijuana prohibition doesn’t protect kids

In 2011, use of marijuana by teenagers hit a 30-year peak, with one out of every 15 high school students reporting they smoke most days, and for the first time U.S. teens reported smoking more pot than cigarettes. But teenagers don’t smoke any more pot in states where medical marijuana is legal than in ones where it’s not.
Legalization opponents argue that the best way to reduce use by minors is to criminalize and deregulate pot. But evidence shows that decriminalizing marijuana and regulating it actively reduces the rate of abusers. Portugal legalized all drugs and treated addiction as a public health issue. They saw a long-term decrease in overall abuse and underage use.

  1. Marijuana milkshakes are one of the oldest cannabis recipes known to man

Bhang is crafted from the dried leaves and flowering shoots of a female cannabis plant. Most commonly enjoyed as a sorbet (preferably as a thandai drink) or as a snack by adding ghee, sugar and milk. A favorite way to consume it in Delhi is rolled into balls called ‘antas’ (marbles).
It’s difficult to tell when bhang became associated with East Indian festivals. Ancient texts describe the drink as Lord Shiva’s nectar, convoluting and enshrining the origins in mystery older than the gods themselves. Regardless, there must have been compelling reasons for creating the drink and later incorporating it into festivities for thousands of years.

10 Easy Makeshift Smoking Devices

10 Easy Makeshift Smoking Devices

Everyone needs a makeshift piece eventually.

Sometimes, an accident robs you of the only pipe you own and a makeshift option is needed. Other times, you bring weed to a party expecting to find a pipe there already. Either way, two of the three key ingredients for smoking (weed, fire, and a pipe) are present with no hope of the third finding you.
It is up to you to channel your inner MacGyver and create a makeshift smoking device they will talk about for decades. Many stoners struggle with trying to be as inventive as the Big Mac himself. This list will help you go from zero to hero in 420 style.

Here is a list of 10 makeshift smoking devices that will keep the smoke flowing and the party going. 


  1. 2-Liter Bong:

Drill a 1/2″ hole halfway down in the middle of a 2-liter bottle. Make another hole on the opposite side of the bottle from the first and about 2 inches higher. Take a 1/2″ straw and wedge a 10mm socket into one end securely. Insert the open end of the straw into the hole at ~45-degree angle. Fill the bottle with water until the tip of the straw is submerged but ensure the liquid does not reach the first hole. Load the weed into the socket, cover the second hole with thumb and draw through the mouth of the bottle.

Pro Tip:

Plastic straws melt (producing toxic chemicals) after a couple hits. Try using silicone straws for a safe makeshift smoking that won’t react to the heat of a bowl. Just don’t try setting silicone on fire.


  1. Apple:Makeshift Smoking Device

Use a pencil or drill to make hole down the entire center of the core. Create another hole that intersects the first hole at ~135 degrees near the bottom of the apple and bite out a bowl. Use the bottom of the core as a carb and the top of the apple as the mouthpiece. Draw hit from the first hole.

Pro Tip:

Place metal or glass bowl (if available) in the hole instead of letting the weed touch the fruit. This keeps the cannabis dry.


  1. Banana:

Use knife to cut the first inch of the tip (not stalk) off the banana. Set the tip aside for use later. Use a straw or drill to create a whole going 1/2 to 3/4 the length from the end that was cut. Drill hole at ~90 degrees to the first hole. Set the tip in the second hole and secure with toothpicks. Use the banana tip as bowl and draw through the first hole.

Pro Tip:

Fresh fruit is better for making pipes because old fruit can be too soft to hold its shape.


  1. Soda Can:

Flatten one side of empty can until it forms a small divot. Using a knife or screw needle, punch holes in the can to create the bowl. Punch additional hole in the side of the can for carb. Draw hit from can opening. Soda have chemical linings on the inside and out. Make sure to burn off the harmful material before taking the first hit.

Pro Tip:

Right handed smokers like a carb on the left of the pipe while left handed smokers prefer a carb on the right side. This makes it easy for the thumb to close or open the hole while toking.


  1. Strawberry:

Use a straw to core the strawberry. Create a second hole with the straw intersecting the first at ~90 degrees. Place a joint in the hole and draw hit from first hole.

Pro Tip:

You can use a steel 1/2″ or 10mm socket as a makeshift bowl.


  1. Knife Hits:

Roll a piece of paper up into a cone with an opening at both ends. Secure paper with tape or origami that shit to make a smoke hood. Take two kitchen knives and place the blade side against a heating element until red hot. Take a small pea sized nug (of any grade cannabis) and twist between knives beneath wide end of hood. Draw hit from narrow end of hood.

Pro Tip:

Cut the bottom off a 2-liter bottle. Punch holes in bottom piece. Fill bottle with ice and wedge bottom piece into the top piece. This creates a cooling ice dome that makes the smoke significantly smoother.


  1. Paper Towel Steamroller:

Drill a 1/2″ hole 3/4 of the way down an empty paper towel roll tube. Wedge a 10mm socket securely into the hole. Draw through the end furthest from the bowl and use the palm of the hand to cover the other end like a carb.

Pro Tip:

Fill a different empty paper towel roll with wadded up dryer sheets. When exhaling smoke, blow through the sheet-filled tube. The air on the other side smells like fresh laundry instead of pure resin.


  1. Coconut:

Drill a hole in top of the coconut. Drain the milk and set aside. Drill second hole intersecting first in the center of the coconut at ~135 degrees. Place joint in second hole. Draw hit from first hole.

Pro Tip:

You can use the coconut juice as bong water if you drop a stem down the second hole.


  1. Sobe Hit:

Using a nail or screw driver, punch a hole in the bottom divot of a glass Sobe bottle and set aside. Cut 1/2″ hole in the lid of the bottle. Wedge a 10mm socket into the hole in the cap. Cover hole in the bottom of the bottle and fill with water. Screw cap back on and fill with weed. Uncover bottom hole and light bowl simultaneously. Once all water has drained, unscrew cap and draw hit through bottle mouthpiece.

Pro Tip:

Hold Sobe bottle above a pitcher to catch and reuse the water. This also makes it easy to do gravity bong hits if the bottom breaks out of the bottle.


  1. Lightsaber:

Unscrew blade portion of saber and set handle aside. Remove plastic light bulb housing. Apply thin line of superglue to base of plastic cup. Slice top 1″ off the saber blade. Drill 1/2″ hole in second to bottom section of blade. Drill second 1/2″ hole 1 inch above and directly opposite the first hole. Take a 1/2″ straw and wedge a 10mm socket into one end securely. Insert the open end of the straw into the hole at ~45-degree angle. Fill the bottle with water until the tip of the straw is submerged but ensure the liquid does not reach the first hole. Load the weed into the socket, cover the second hole with thumb and draw through the open end of the blade.

Pro Tip:

Steel down-stems are commonly available in a variety of sizes at smoke shops. A properly sized down-stem should almost tough the opposite corner of the bottom of the chamber. Having it touch can transfer heat and cause plastic parts to melt faster.

Wake and Bake Waffle Cakes

Recipe: Wake and Bake Waffle Cakes

Wake and bake with these waffle cakes! This batter recipe can be used for pancakes, too! With a little more sugar and some cinnamon and nutmeg, these would also work fantastically as donuts. If you have a fancy donut pan, or even just a mini-muffin tin, go ahead and try it!

Recipe makes roughly six 4″ x 4 1/2″ waffles. I do not have a round waffle maker! So bake according to manufacturer’s instructions, if you have one. Two waffles per person ought to give a sweet buzz.


1 3/4 cup millet flour (or GF flour blend)
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 or 3 tbs ground flax seed
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbs of sugar (if you want them sweeter)

1 cup almond or soy milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 tbs maple syrup
1/3 cup melted cannabutter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

optional: cinnamon, nutmeg, bananas, blueberries, walnuts, peanut butter

waffle iron
frying pan (for pancakes)
non-stick cooking spray
two bowls


1. Measure out the almond milk, then add the tsp of ACV. Let it sit and curdle for a few minutes–this creates “butter”milk! Which makes the waffles nice and fluffy.

2. In one of the mixing bowls, combine all dry ingredients. When I first tried these waffles, I didn’t use any extra/added sugar (though technically, I guess maple syrup counts as sugar). For breakfast, I go with hearty, but not heavy! Whatever floats your boat, though. Try coconut sugar, or brown sugar for a richer flavor.

3. To the dry mixture, add all of the wet ingredients. Whisk together until thoroughly combined. Now’s the time to throw in any other spices, nuts, or fruit. If you decide to turn the batter into pancakes, then I highly recommend tossing in some fresh or frozen blueberries, chopped bananas, or mini chocolate chips. Set that bowl aside to let the flaxseed thicken up the batter.

4. Preheat your waffle iron according to the machine’s instructions (I’m guessing most come with a dial for time/crispiness, and a red and green light to indicate completion. Try setting it to a 3 or 4, for golden brown waffles), and coat both sides with non-stick cooking spray. Or, before it’s hot, grease the waffle iron with a paper towel dabbed in melted canna butter.

5. When it’s ready, start spooning batter onto the iron. I used about 1/2 of a cup of batter per waffle, but go by your own device and measure. Basically, the batter should fill the entire waffle indent without spilling over,  and you should be able to close the iron with little overflow. While your first batch cooks, do some clean up, or prep toppings by chopping nuts or fruit.

6. Let waffles bake to the desired level of doneness. I like them golden and crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, but I always struggle to keep them that way while the second batch bakes.  Preheat your oven to 200F and lay the first batch of waffles in a single layer on a baking sheet. Slide that sucker into the oven to fix any issues of lukewarm waffles (just don’t forget they’re in there!), then get started on the second batch. Keep going until all batter is used.

7. Serve waffles warm and immediately, with fruit, maple syrup, whipped cream, and loads and loads of vegan butter. When they’re hot, I suggest melting even more canna butter on top, just to be sure you’re getting the most out of this wake-and-bake breakfast.


Perform steps 1-3. For pancakes, grease a griddle or frying pan and keep on medium-high heat. Non-stick pans and spatulas will work best for this. Spoon a reasonable amount of batter per pancake onto the griddle, then flip when edges pull towards the middle and the batter on top bubbles evenly. I am terrible at making uniform pancakes, so forget being fancy. Make whatever you’re happy with!

For donuts, grease a donut pan or mini-muffin pan (or a regular muffin pan, whatever you want, man), fill each indent about half-way, then slide in an oven set to 350F. Bake until donuts or muffins rise and turn golden brown. Top with canna butter, vegan cream cheese, cinnamon & sugar, or sprinkles.

weedreader Recipe No Churn Avocado Lime Ice Cream

Recipe: No-Churn Avocado Lime Ice Cream

I cannot get over how simple and delicious this recipe is. Dairy-free, nut free, and soy-free, this ice cream is perfect for a bright, refreshing dessert that satisfies all allergen worries.

Recipe makes enough to evenly stone/serve 4 people. Goes fantastically with the Raw 4th of July Pie.



3 medium or 2 large avocados
1 can sweetened condensed coconut milk
or the cream from 1 can full-fat coconut milk, boiled down with 1 1/2 cups sugar + canna butter

3 tbs cannabutter, softened
zest and juice from 4 limes
maple syrup
pinch of sea salt


1. Remove pits from avocados and scoop meat into a mixing bowl. Juice and zest the limes, then add to the avocados. Add the canna butter. Begin mashing them together, gradually adding more juice/zest and salt to taste. (It will soon taste weird, like sweet guacamole, but trust me.)

2. If you can find sweetened condensed coconut milk, this recipe will shorten considerably. If you got it, open the can + dump it into the bowl. Beat together with a whisk or a hand-held blender.

2a. If you have just the coconut milk, flip it upside down and open it. Drain and save the separated water, then scoop out the cream into a pan. A double boiler would ensure it from burning while you cook. Either way, add sugar and canna butter to the cream. Keep on medium heat; do not allow the mixture to boil. Once liquid is reduced but thickened (when the oil cooks into the cream), remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Add to step 1’s mix of stuff and combine thoroughly.

3. Pour or scoop entire mixture into freezer-safe container.


Because the base is avocados, this ice cream will (or shouldn’t) freeze completely. A few minutes to soften and it’s the consistency of frozen yogurt, super creamy, and irresistibly sweet and tart. And bright lime-green!

Seriously, start freezing your produce and see what happens. Avocados and bananas, sliced, then frozen, then blended in a food processor, will create a texture remarkably similar to dairy ice cream–especially the bananas. Experiment with adding in different toppings, fruits, syrups, and create your very own flavors!

WR pot brownies

Recipe: Fudge You Up Pot Brownies

Dense, chocolatey, chewy, and fudgey as… well, fudge. A vegan and gluten-free spin on the classic pot brownie. Top with nuts or chocolate chips for variety!

The recipe makes roughly 12 brownies, though slice them how you please! One 2 x 3 inch slice is surely enough to stone somebody solid.


2 cups oat flour (or a blend of oat + almond, coconut, or rice flour)
    + more as needed
1/4 cup whole flaxseed
3 tbs milled flaxseed + 6 tbs non-dairy milk
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 tbs raw cacao or cocoa powder
AVB (already vaped bud, for extra buzz)
4 tbs powdered coconut sugar (blitz regular coconut sugar in a coffee or spice grinder)
3 tbs maple syrup
1/3 cup cannabutter, softened
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 banana
2 tbs vanilla extract
3 pinches of salt

Optional additions:
chocolate chips, nuts, coconut flakes

coconut oil for greasing
or parchment paper for lining
hand or stand mixer & bowl
baking dish, 9 x 9 for thicker + denser brownies or 9 x 13 for thinner


1. Preheat the oven to 350F. I tend to do 375F when I’m impatient, though it’s your call. If you need to, do the prep steps first; make powdered sugar or oat flour if you need to. Do this by pulsing oats several times in a food processor until a flour forms. Creating powdered sugar is virtually the same, though a coffee or spice grinder will be easiest to use.

2. Prepare flax ‘eggs’ by combining the ground flaxseed with the non-dairy milk, in a small bowl. Then, set aside and wait for it to congeal. Chia seeds + water would work as well!

3a. If using a hand mixer: in a large mixing bowl, combine oat flour, whole flax seeds, baking soda, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt, and AVB (already vaped bud) if desired. Next, stir in applesauce, vanilla extract, maple syrup, flax eggs, and the cannabutter with a spatula. Then, blend in the banana with the hand mixer until a dough forms.

3b. If using a food processor: Add all above ingredients including ‘optionals’ if using, and blend. The ending texture should be somewhere between a batter and a dough–not too gooey, not too stiff. If it’s too stiff, add sips of water or milk until the mix is slightly sticky. If it’s too wet, add pinches of flour until sticky.

4. Transfer dough to a greased baking dish. (note: Using parchment paper will be the easiest clean-up overall, but the brownies come out a little crispier/chewier at the edges when baked in a greased pan).  Then, press it down with the spatula to remove any air bubbles, and smooth over the top. Bake uncovered for 25-30 mins, or until a crackle top forms, and it achieves a cake-like texture when a toothpick is inserted. When cool, top, slice, and serve.


It is very, very important that you allow these brownies to cool to at least room temperature before slicing. They will hold together much better, and you won’t run the risk of burning your mouth before you can taste anything good! With any edible, start slowly. Eat 1 brownie and wait 20 minutes before deciding whether you need to eat another. And remember, there are consequences to everything! You might get high, but too much sugar at once could cause a crash rather than a blissful, relaxing experience. So, munch wisely!

raw pie

Recipe: Raw Pie for the 4th of July

A bright and mouthwateringly delicious raw pie for the 4th of July! No oven or baking required. Dairy and soy-free, but this is not a recipe for those allergic to nuts!

One 2-inch slice will be enough to feel something fun, and ideally the tart will serve at least 8 people. As with any recipe, read the whole thing first. Then, perform the steps in the order they appear.


4-6 large dates
1 1/2/ cups shredded coconut
a handful of almonds
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1/2 cup pecans
(if you have a nut allergy, sub the nuts for 2 cups of oats and another 1/4 cup of flaxseeds)
lemon zest
1 tbs vanilla
2 pinches of salt
3 tbs of canna butter

Fruit Layer
1 cup + 1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 cup + 1 1/2 cups raspberries
1/4 cup chia seeds
maple syrup
lemon juice

‘Cream’ Layer
2 tbs cannabutter
2 cups coconut flakes
vanilla extract
maple syrup


1. Pit and soak dates in hot water for 20 mins. Then, pulse all together till a somewhat crumbly, sticky ball forms, that holds when pressed together.

2. Grease a pie or tart pan (I used a cheesecake pan) with canna butter, then press crust into desired shape. Set in freezer to firm for fifteen minutes or longer.

Fruit Layer
1. While crust is firming, mash 1 cup blueberries and 1 cup raspberries together with some lemon juice. Feel free to use other berries; strawberries, blackberries, or even go the extra mile and pit some cherries to throw in. Just use whatever’s red and blue!

2. Add the chia seeds, some maple syrup, and stir together. When left in the fridge, the chia seeds will soften and form a consistency similar to jelly or jam. Add more maple syrup or lemon juice to taste, then leave the mix undisturbed in the fridge for at least ten minutes.

Cream Layer
1. Blend all ingredients at high speed with a hand mixer or in a food processor until a paste forms. Add in more canna butter (I suggest coconut oil-based) if mix remains crumbly.


1. Remove crust from freezer. Dump in the remaining 3 cups of berries, then drizzle over or pour in the cream layer. You will need to work quickly if you want an even layer, as the cream will solidify due to the coldness of the crust. Save a small amount to drizzle over the fruit, if you wish.

2. Take the fruit ‘jelly’ you made out of the fridge, then spread it over the tart with a silicone or rubber spatula. Make sure the filling covers the loose fruit and reaches the line of crust; you want everything to surely hold together, as this won’t be baked (but it’ll get you baked).

3. Add the rest of the cream, if you kept it. Garnish with lemon zest or a sprinkling of coconut sugar.

4. Stick the whole thing back into the fridge until solid and ready to serve.


You can top this tart with more berries, a dollop of coconut cream (just open a can of full-fat coconut milk and use a scoop of the separated cream), or your favorite ice cream. this dessert happens to pair fantastically with sherbet, or try a crack at the recipe for Avocado Lime ice cream and really knock your own socks off!

hot chocolate marijuana

Creamy Dreamy Hot Chocolate

Drink this rich, creamy hot cocoa, and in no time you’ll feel as toasted as a roasted chestnut.

Main recipe serves 2 or 3 people, roughly 8oz each, but can easily be doubled or tripled for larger batches.


1 can of coconut milk
water or soy/plant milk
maple syrup
cacao or cocoa powder, as much as desired
2-3 tbs  coconut or date sugar, more to taste (raw sugars are best, but whatever is on hand is fine)
1/8 tsp of cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 tbs cannabutter

chipotle or cayenne pepper, marshmallows, coconut oil, whipped cream, coffee

whisk or spatula
double boiler


1. Shake up the can of coconut milk, and open with a can opener. Into the top portion of a double boiler, pour the coconut milk, a dash of soy milk, and the 3 tbs of canna butter. Turn the burner on slightly lower than medium and let the liquid heat.

2. As it heats, whisk in small amounts of cacao or cocoa powder. The difference between the two: cacao powder tends to be raw, made directly from crushed cacao beans, where as cocoa is usually processed with sugar or other additives. If you’re using cocoa powder, be careful you don’t end up with a drink that’s so sweet you feel sick– modify the added sugar as you wish. Cacao powder will be a richer and more pure chocolate flavor, but more bitter than cocoa. If using cacao powder, add small amounts of maple syrup to taste.

3. Throw in the cinnamon and salt, with a pinch of chipotle or cayenne pepper for a Mexican-inspired hot chocolate. Keep whisking the mixture, so that no clumps of powder form and the sugar dissolves. A helpful hint, dry ingredients are easier to dissolve in cold liquid than in hot. Try to have most of your dry ingredients incorporated before the milk is too hot, and it should never boil. If you can’t resist, or find you need to add more cacao/cocoa, make a little slurry to the side by stirring in 1 part cacao/cocoa to 2 parts water or soy milk, then add that to the heated mixture. Like with all cooking, I encourage you taste as you go! It doesn’t have to be a surprise at the end, of whether or not your dish came out well.

4. Stir frequently, allowing the canna butter to cook with the fat of the coconut milk. The oil does begin to cook the whole mixture, after a little while, so if you like a thick hot chocolate, leave it as is and take the mix off heat when you’re ready. If you want a drink less creamy, add small amounts of water or other milk until desired consistency is reached. Set aside to cool a little.

5. Pour carefully into mugs or ladle it out with a spoon, like it’s the olden days and you’re about to settle down in front of a fire during a raging snowstorm. If you’re not into that sort of imagery, just serve up your hot cocoa, top with marshmallows, whipped cream, or other delights, and enjoy.

While I know summer is fast approaching and not many people are into hot drinks, nothing hits the spot like a cup of hot cocoa. If you’d like a more refreshing treat, make the same brew as above (so that the THC molecules still bind to the fat properly), then let it cool completely and serve in a glass over ice cubes. Same principle as iced coffee, which I’m sure would also be a delicious substitute for cocoa, if you aren’t a fan of chocolate (but why wouldn’t you be).
