Cooking with Marijuana

By May 12, 2006articles
Many people suffering from the debilitating affects of illness start smoking marijuana. This can be very difficult or virtually impossible to take the harsh smoke into the throat and lungs. So eating marijuana is a great way to consume the drug and reap the benefits of medical marijuana.
Can you please give detailed cooking instructions for any marijuana recipes?

There are so many different recipes and medical marijuana patients would benefit from having a collection of marijuana recipes. Part of getting better or alleviating the systems of illness, is having a variety of delicious cannabis cooking.

    Here are a few good reasons to cook with marijuana: ease with which it’s consumption can be kept secret and it’s a good-tasting herb.

  • aaron says:

    Cooking with cannabis can be extremely fun. It is becoming more and more common across the USA.
    There are many different methods of ways to prepare foods with cannabis.

  • When cooking with marijuana it is recommended that you use a low to medium grade harvest.

    I have enough medical problems to qualify for medical marijuana 10 fold. I have never felt anything but calm, peace and harmony after smoking a joint. I use to drink and during those years, I was the biggest threat to public safety out there. To this day, I am surprised I never killed someone or myself while under the influence of alcohol.

    • nonarcotics says:

      i have lived with dibilitating pain for over 20 years, my mind refused to accept.

      After four years of extremely intense nartcotic therapy and my doctor stating in medical records i was an addict this was a personal assault on my character. Addication has never been attributed to my personality, mainly because I am a control freak when it comes to my mind and body.

      It took 10 days to get avg. 40mg dilaudid, 140-180mg norco and 100 mg Fentynal patch before switching to 75mg fentenyl patch. yes that was the quanity of meds i took daily, my symptoms dosing down-really bad flu for 48 hours then went to 50mg in 9 days(3 patches) 25mg 6 days (2 patches). some addict. have had several surgeries and had morphine, norco an dilaudid since, use what i need fluss the rest.


  • I can imagine how a bowl of marijuana can taste with this. I so love it. it is just so yummy and delicious. Just as what the bubble hash can do!

    Needless to say, this video is very informative. I had no idea how cooking with marijuana actually works.

    The marijuana laws are hurting people more than the drug (medicine). It has more benefits than it has harm associated with it yet you can buy alcohol in every neighborhood in this country. Go figure???? I just never got it. Someone please wake up. I stopped drinking after almost killing myself but never felt anything but love smoking marijuana. Smoking always concerned me but seeing this video lends new hope to my situation. Thanks.

    This video presentation of cooking with medical marijuana is excellent! The presenter is knowledgeable, the instructions are clear; the intent is obviously to help those in need of relief from pain and insomnia. Well done!

  • Bobbie says:

    I would suggest that some of YUNS…please refrain from being high when surfing the web..For it shows greatly in your lack of use from da spell check!However I do agree…lets all smoke weed!!

  • Austen Drenkow says:

    I have been smoking weed for about ten years now and it helps me cope with my anxiety and my depression.

    just the other day i was approached my a cop who told me that if i didnt flush it down the toilet he would give me a possession charge and put me in rehab for six months. I just want to smoke my weed after supper and go to bed and wake up and smoke a joint and go to work…thats it, i have never gotten in an accident while high or caused any troubles while high.

    When are the polititians gonna get it through their heads that weed is not a drug, it is a plant that makes all the pain go away? LEGALIZE WEED IN IOWA YOU FUCKTARDS!!!

  • LRE says:

    I love the weed gaucamole posted by Jimmy Thing. Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Marijuana and marijuana seeds are still used in regular cooking in some countries in the middle-east. Just like you use fresh herbs, spices and nuts, they do to with different flavors.

    The cannabis seeds toasted are very good and can be tossed in salads or eaten plain salted. They are full of essential minerals, vitimans and oils!

    The ground up flower tops, or buds, can be grounds up and tossed in a salad with an oil vinegrette.

  • Chuck Webb says:

    I think marijuana should be legal. For over 5 years I was given a perscription for Marinol 10 mg and currently I am given hydrocodone. Why can I just get my weed. I have artritis in my lower left ankle.

  • jimmy thing says:

    weed guacamole

    7-14 grams dried high thc content marijuana
    2 avocados
    1 diced tomato
    1 chopped onion
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    diced cilantro (optional)

    finely grind marijuana. peel and de-seed avocados. mix avocados and marijuana in a bowl rigorously. The oils in the avocados will extract the thc from the marijuana. Add the rest of the ingredients and chill. Serve to your roomates annoying friends before the super bowl, and watch the game in peace and quiet while they are passed out. hint: dont eat as much quac as everyone else. this stuff is deadly. recipe is from a random stoner culture book. never forget it once i read it.

  • Maggotroid says:

    Readers, I implore you to save those stems!!!!

    I saved approx. 2 oz of stems and my pal provided me with a few nice handfuls of fresh trim. This made some badass butter. I made 35 little green cookies from a Betty Crocker mix. They rock awesome. I’m a regular smoker and these things put a x5 turboboost on my arthritis treatment. I feel like I’m getting a backrub from the inside.

    I’ve saved stems before and used variations of cheap gear and 1/2 oz to 1 oz of stem at a time. It does work. Just follow your usual green butter recipe and always put 1 1/3 stick of butter to reclaim a full stick. No one ever seems to mention the “Angels Share” that seems to disappear into the sky. Start banking those stems…..

    I have the Marijuana Chef Cookbook by S. T. Oner (oh, ha ha). I have yet to do much with it other than read it. He says to use the leaf and makes a pot flour. Has anyone ever heard of this? Also, using 2 ounces of bud on a recipe that serves 6 – 8 seems like a complete waste of good bud.

  • TheJerzeyTurnpike says:

    Howdy all. The recipes look great! I'm going to try the Kind Soup for dinner tomorrow night.

    To help medical patients create some variety when taking their prescription I've been working on a website that provides a database of recipes using marijuana in food. On a side note, I'm also looking for the world's best weed brownie recipe (there's bound to be one that seriously kicks ass).

    There's an area on the site to submit new recipes for all to enjoy. Please check it out and submit one of your own!

    i just cooked some hashbrowns and i sauteed about 1/2 a gram of finely chopped kind bud in the oil for a couple of min before adding the potatoes. worked for me, its simple and it doesnt agitate my bronchitis. yay!

  • Jamie says:

    and btw 20:11 anonymous; at the right temp. butter is just as effective as oil, but if you’re heating it to temperatures where anything is evaporating then the THC is escaping either way. Generally the lowest temperature; where any movement is seen in the oil/butter should be used, even though the equivalent color may take longer to achieve. Personally my favorite recipe is to heat around 350ml of heavy cream with as much gunja as you’d like, mix with ~150ml (subtract the volume of any other flavoring) syrup flavor of choice, liqueur optional (recommended) and load into a NĀ²O-charged cream whipper (double the ingredients if you have a one-liter machine). Four or five shakes after the unit is gassed and she’s ready to go =). Best served chilled, with the remaining chargers handy ;P, enjoy.

  • Jamie says:

    Some great combinations of ingredients guys, one thing must be said tho’, you must extract the THC (the active chemical*s) into a lipid (fat, i.o. oil) or an alcohol (this is the much slower option) and drain/remove the plant matter (a stocking works great to keep your butter leafless). Some heat must be used but never expose your flora / butter to temperatures over around 200f (this will convert the gold into gas which will escape),; unfortunately in almost all cases that means no baking and no boiling (hot recipes usually are fine when your green is added only during the final five minutes of cooking time). Schwag, or the non-flowering matter should be used but in large amounts due to it’s low strength, if you cannot handle smoking the heads of the plant then invest in a vaporizer, greatly faster and more efficient (cooking and ingestion times can be a drag).

    that cookbook is great, btw!

    Hi – i have created a blog devoted Alzheimer’s patients and their family, friends or doctors that are considering using marijuana or cannabis in their treatment.

    its better to use oil instead of butter, butter evaporates faster then veg oil so it burns up more THC, i use a OZ grinded up weed “weighed with seeds stems” to 2/3 of oil simmer on 2-3 very low heat for about 25mins maybe 30.. the oil should be greenish darkish brown color. take a coff filter from walmart for like 2-3 $ to strain the herb from the oil use a spoon and press on the leftover weed in the filter to strain it all the way. I didnt use a medal coff filter, i used a medal strainer, it was strong enough so i could press the leftover weed with a spoon until the leftovers were about the size of a very very small cookie, take the oil.. use with oil based brownie mix. i normaly dont use all the mix i leave about a 20 sack of the mix left in the bag and throw away or save for next batch

    enjoy. warning do not drive under this. this is a very strong way of making the brownies stay at home. because youll be falling over laffin at the most dumbest things.

    but its harmless weed does not kill brain cells as thought by people in the 40’s-50’s new studys say it dont. alcohol does tho ;p im not much of a drinker but i like my brownies i take pride, i had to start eating because i was allgeric to ragweed at the top of the chart.
    so weed will make my sinuses drain, eating it dont make it drain. so people with same prob who love their weed “or need it for medical reasons” will like this
    but take caution of my warning. thats all. have a nice day “im sure u will” and enjoy…….

    Marijuana BUD BARS
    Ingredients: One bag of Hershey’s Chocolate Chips A quarter cup of powdered sugar
    [optional: if you want it sweeter šŸ˜‰ ] A quarter ounce of your best buds In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips until slightly chunky. Then in a blender, put buds in until they are finely chopped. Then add the chopped buds into the chocolate. Add sugar if you want. Mix all together, let it stay on heat for about five minutes. Take off heat and let cool slightly. Grease a baking sheet or a candy bar shaping pan and pour the mixture into it. Freeze the chocolate mixture until completely firm. (Keep away from baking soda otherwise it will get that weird baking soda taste.) Cut into two inch bars. NOTE: You can use more or less bud in this recipe.

    In my blog I have a whole section on cooking with marijuana:

    So far there are 8 recipes, but that should grow.

  • Anonymous says:

    you can make anything once you have “weed butter”. any recipe that calls for butter can be substituded with weed butter and give the desired effect of being stoned. for example, last year for 4/20 my friend had a birthday on 4/19. so idecided to bake a four layer cake with about a 1/2 oz of crip. all i had to do was saute the brkoen up buds in oils and garlic on a low setting until the weed starts to soften and cook (very similiar to sauteing onions). afterwards you strain the oil and melted butter into a bowl and sit in a fridge for about an hour. this allows the THC enhanced butter to solidify on the top. you just have to learn your weed to butter ratios by experimenting. remember not to burn the weed and don’t be afraid to add more butter to the frying pan.
