Spice Up Your Holidays With Cannabis Infused Treats


Looking to incorporate cannabis into your favorite treats this holiday season? We’ve included five of our favorite recipes below to get you started.

Cannabis works best when added to recipes that already include a fat-based ingredient (such as butter or oil). If you have a favorite holiday recipe, you may be able to add a serving of cannabinoids by blending with a fat-based carrier. This helps with bioavailability so you can infuse all your favorite recipes.

Another important tip is to use low heat, as cannabinoids begin to break down around 350°F.

1. Cannabis Pumpkin Pie

Enjoy this fall holiday favorite when fresh pumpkin is in season, or all year long with canned pumpkin. The evaporated milk in this recipe gives our Cannabis Pumpkin Pie its luxuriously smooth texture and also acts as the base that infuses the cannabinoids. This recipe makes 8 servings.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 10 ounces canned evaporated milk

  • 15-ounce can pumpkin

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 unbaked pie crust

  • Desired serving of cannabis oil

Directions:

  • Pre-bake your pie crust at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 300°F after pie crust is done.

  • Prepare your pie filling while your pie crust bakes. Mix the sugar, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Stir in the pumpkin and beat in the eggs.

  • Add cannabis oil into the evaporated milk and stir well. Add this mixture gradually to the pumpkin mixture.

  • Once your crust has cooled, pour in the pie filling.

  • Bake for an hour or longer until a knife in the center of the pie comes out clean.

  • Cool for two hours and serve.

2. Cannabis Mini Cheesecakes

Cheesecake is a holiday mainstay. The natural fats in the cream cheese and sour cream will infuse cannabis into this delicious treat; just be sure to stir in the cannabinoids very well. This recipe makes 12 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1 egg, room temperature

  • ⅓ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup sour cream, room temperature

  • Desired serving of cannabis oil

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Line muffin pan with 12 paper or silicone liners.

  • To make graham cracker crust, stir together graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter. Press 2 tablespoons of the crust mixture into the bottom of each muffin liner.

  • To make the cheesecake filling, beat cream cheese and cannabinoids with hand mixer until fluffy. Beat in sour cream, egg, sugar, and vanilla. Add 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture on top of each crust.

  • Bake for 22-25 minutes until the top of each cheesecake begins to brown.

  • Cool completely and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

3. Cannabis Snickerdoodle Cookies

These cannabis snickerdoodle cookies use Cannabinoid-infused butter. We also love topping these cookies with red and green sprinkles for the holiday season. This recipe makes 18 servings. If you use 1ml cannabis oil per serving, use 18ml cannabis oil for this recipe.

  • Cream butter and sugar together for several minutes until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Cream for another minute.

  • Form dough into 18 1-inch balls and roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat.
