Cooking With Cannabutter
This recipe contains cannabutter! For those who don’t know, cannabutter is cannabis-infused butter, which can be used for all kinds of cooking. If you don’t want to spend a weekend preparing cannabutter for this and/or other recipes, you can purchase some from your favorite dispensary. However, making your own cannabutter gives you much more creative control over the strain of cannabis used in the butter and thus, the effect the butter will give.
For detailed instructions on how to make your own cannabutter, check out our article about it. For now, let’s continue on with this delicious cannabis mac and cheese recipe.
Know Your Dose
When you’re making cannabis edibles like this recipe, it’s important to stay conscious of your dose - especially if you’re going to be sharing this with friends! In general, edibles have a tendency to take longer to take effect and can last much longer than cannabis that is smoked. And once you’ve ingested it, you can’t go back.
So be aware of how much cannabis is in your cannabutter. Knowing that will give you a rough idea of how much is in each serving of the edible that you’re making. For example, if you are using a stick of butter that contains ¼ oz. of weed and the recipe makes 14 cookies, then you’re looking at some really strong cookies - around 2 grams of weed per serving.
It’s up to you how much makes it into your edible product. But don’t skip the number crunching. It is important to make sure that neither you nor your friends end up taking too much and dealing with an uncomfortable experience!
