Cooking with marijuana is a great way to bring flavor and creativity together while enjoying the high that this well-loved plant provides. However, if you’ve never cooked with weed before, you might find it hard to get started, especially when you don’t really cook with food regularly in the first place! To help you out, we’ve compiled some of the best weed edible recipes out there.

How to Make Cannabis Butter

First off, it’s important to first learn how to make cannabutter. This isn’t eaten on its own, don’t worry, but this is a great ingredient that you can incorporate into your cannabis recipes. First, finely grind up about 30 grams of marijuana. Add this to a saucepan with a litre of water and 250 grams of butter. Stir the mixture and allow it to simmer for at least three hours or even a whole day until you see a layer of oil floating to the top.

After it has simmered, remove the mixture from the heat. Once it has cooled for a while, strain it into a big bowl to remove any remaining plant matter. Place it in the fridge and allow it to solidify overnight. When you take it out the next day, you’ll notice a layer of cannabis butter. Take extra care as you remove the top layer of butter from the container so it doesn’t fall into the remaining water. Store the resulting cannabutter in your fridge for future use.
