Easter Cannabis Treats

If there’s any holiday that could be known as the chocolate holiday, it’s Easter. It’s a time to celebrate as kids run around looking for chocolate eggs and maybe a gift hidden somewhere. But while adults may not join in the egg hunt, there are ways for them to have a little fun of their own.

Whipping up some quick cannabis treats, whether they’re dripping with chocolate or just subtly sweet, is a great way to celebrate this Easter holiday. It’s really easy to do, too. Just follow one of the delectable recipes below and get ready for a spiced up holiday!

 

Cannabutter

With just about any cannabis baked good, you’ll first have to make cannabutter. This is because you can’t just eat marijuana and expect it to get you high. Cannabis is fat-soluble and so first,  you need to immerse it in some fat. When thinking about baking, this fat is typically butter. Making cannabutter is very easy and you can keep some in the fridge for whenever you get the urge to bake up some cannabis goods.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 pound unsalted butterCannabutter
  • 1 ounce cannabis
  • Large saucepan
  • Cheesecloth
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper

 

Recipe

 

  • Preheat oven to its lowest setting, somewhere between 170 degrees and 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grind cannabis very finely and spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Place baking sheet in the oven and cook for about 30 to 45 minutes. Make sure you stir regularly. When finished, remove from oven.
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat on the stove.
  • Add marijuana, stir, and turn heat to low.
  • Cook marijuana in the butter for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Transfer cannabutter to an airtight container. Allow to cool and place in fridge until ready to use.
