If you need a new way to get high while also enjoying delicious treats, then it’s time to learn some great edible marijuana recipes. Marijuana edibles are among the most potent and enjoyable THC-infused products. They can come in all kinds of forms and, although they’re easy to get and you can even buy edibles online, it can be even more fun to make them yourself.
Although there are a few different ways to make edibles, the best method is to use cannabutter. Cannabutter is made by binding the THC in cannabis with the fats in butter, resulting in a versatile condiment that you can use for a variety of recipes. Whether you’re looking to make sweet treats like marijuana brownies or savory meals like cannabis-infused pasta, there’s a great marijuana recipe for you.
The process of making cannabutter is easy enough for anyone to handle. All you need is some regular butter and a portion of your favorite strain of weed. Plus, once you make a batch of THC-infused butter, you can use it for plenty of amazing cannabutter recipes. Need some inspiration? Here are some of the best edible marijuana recipes & cannabutter recipes.
How to Decarboxylate Your Weed
Before you can use weed for any kind of edible recipe, you need to decarboxylate it first. Decarboxylation simply involves exposing your weed to high heat to activate the THC inside, resulting in your edibles giving you psychoactive effects when you eat them. If you don’t decarboxylate your weed, your edibles won’t get you high.
Decarboxylation is a pretty simple process and takes around 30-40 minutes. To begin, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 245°F and cover a baking tray with parchment paper to ensure your weed doesn’t stick to the tray. While you can grind your weed before placing it on the tray, it’s better to use larger buds and grind them after decarboxylation.
Spread your buds of weed across your baking tray and place it in your preheated oven. You’ll need to allow around 30-40 minutes for your weed to fully decarboxylate. You might also want to shake the tray every 10 minutes or so to ensure your buds are evenly heated. This process will activate the THC in your weed for use in cannabutter and various edibles.
Whether you call it cannabutter, marijuana butter, or THC butter, this is one of the best marijuana-infused condiments you can make. Cannabutter can be used in everything from baked goods to tasty cannabis-infused dinners. Plus, it’s pretty easy to make and you can make as much as you want. Here’s an easy-to-follow recipe for cannabutter.
- 7-10 grams of weed (decarboxylated and ground)
- 1 cup of butter
- 1 cup of water
Step 1: Place a pot on medium heat and add your butter and water. It’s best to use 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of water for every 7-10 grams of weed you plan to use, so feel free to add more if you plan to make a bigger batch. Wait for your butter to melt in the water and stir it.
Step 2: After melting and stirring your butter, lower the heat (a temperature of 160-180ºF is ideal) and add your ground weed. Stir the weed into the mixture thoroughly and allow time for it to simmer. Let it simmer without boiling for around 2-3 hours- the THC will bind to the butter.
Step 3: After 2-3 hours, your butter should be infused with the THC and you can now strain it to separate the butter from the leftover weed. Cover a glass container with a cheesecloth or strainer and strain the mixture thoroughly.
Step 4: Once you’ve strained all your cannabis butter into your glass jar or container, seal it and place it in the fridge to harden. Once it hardens, separate the butter with a knife and pour out any excess water. You now have a batch of cannabis butter to use in all kinds of edible recipes.
Marijuana Brownies Recipe
When you think of marijuana edibles, marijuana brownies are one of the most popular and well-loved choices. You get the delicious chocolatey taste of brownies along with a sensational high. They’re also pretty easy to make and you can customize them with different toppings or fillings if you like. Here’s a simple recipe for marijuana brownies.
- ½ cup of cannabutter
- 2 large eggs
- ⅓ cup of flour
- ½ cup of cocoa powder
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon of salt
Step 1: Grease a brownie tray and set it to the side. You should also preheat your oven to 325°F. You won’t need these right now, but they’ll come in handy once you’re ready to bake your brownie mix.
Step 2: Take a mixing bowl and add your sugar, salt, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and cannabis butter along with 2 tablespoons of water. Blend these ingredients thoroughly before slowly adding your eggs while simultaneously beating them into the mixture.
Step 3: After blending all ingredients, add your flour and continue to blend the mixture. After around 3 minutes of mixing, you should have a nice, smooth chocolate brownie mixture ready to put in the oven.
Step 4: Take your brownie mix and pour it evenly into your brownie tray. You can now place the brownie tray into the oven. It should only take around 20-30 minutes for your brownies to be baked. You can tell they’re ready when the mixture hardens and separates from the sides.
Step 5: Once your brownie mix has been baked, you can take it out of the oven and cut it into around 12 even servings. This should give you enough to get you high without being too overwhelming, although you may even want to split them into smaller servings if you want a milder high.
Marijuana Chocolate Recipe
Another delicious way to enjoy the effects of marijuana is with marijuana chocolates. You can either make chocolate pieces or make a whole marijuana-infused chocolate bar. Either way, the process is fairly simple. You can also add extra fillings if you want to enhance your marijuana chocolates. Here’s how to make them.
- ¼ cup of cannabutter
- 4 cups of chocolate
- Fillings such as nuts, candies or rice crispies
- Chocolate molds
Step 1: Add some water to a saucepan and heat it until it’s barely simmering. Once it’s hot enough, place a small glass bowl inside the saucepan and add your chocolate. The hot water from the pan will cause the chocolate inside the bowl to melt. Stir it thoroughly until you have a bowl of melted chocolate.
Step 2: Next, add your cannabutter to the melted chocolate and allow it to melt. Make sure you keep your saucepan on a relatively low heat throughout. Once the butter melts, blend your ingredients thoroughly and you’ll have a nice batch of cannabis chocolate.
Step 3: You can now start filling your molds with your marijuana chocolate mixture. You can use chocolate bar molds or regular candy molds if you want chocolate pieces. Whichever way, fill your molds until you’ve emptied your bowl and stir the chocolate gently to remove air bubbles. Before your chocolate melts, you might want to add some fillings such as nuts, candies, or rice crispies.
Step 4: Put your chocolate molds in the fridge and wait for the chocolate to harden. This usually doesn’t take too long and you’ll end up with some tasty marijuana chocolate treats to eat. Make sure you only eat a small serving at first so you know what to expect.
Marijuana Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe
If you’re looking for a full marijuana meal instead of something sweet, then try making this delicious marijuana-infused fettuccine alfredo. Not only is it enough to fill you up for the day, but you’ll also get the effects of THC. You’ll even get multiple servings out of it so you can save more for later. Here’s how to make it.
- 3 cups of fettuccine pasta
- 1 cup of cannabutter
- ¾ pint of heavy cream
- ¾ cup of grated parmesan
- 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
Step 1: Add some water and a pinch of salt to a pot. Once the water boils, add your fettuccine pasta. You can use as much as you want, but 3 cups of pasta will work well for this recipe. You’ll want to boil your fettuccine pasta for around 8-10 minutes until it’s soft enough to poke with a fork.
Step 2: While your fettuccine pasta is boiling, place a saucepan on low heat and add your cream and cannabutter. The butter will melt into the cream and you can stir them together thoroughly. Add your garlic salt and any other herbs or spices you want.
Step 3: Drain your pasta from the pot and add it to your sauce. Keep the saucepan at a low temperature and stir everything together thoroughly until your pasta is coated. Your marijuana fettuccine alfredo pasta is now ready. You should get around 6 servings out of this and you can store it in a sealed container in the fridge.

Allow it to cool and split it into 12 servings or so.
