Five great weed-infused foods to bring to Thanksgiving dinner
It's almost here -- Thanksgiving is this Thursday, and you know you're headed out to Grandma's house, where the whole family will sit down around way too much food (and Uncle Joe will stay in the study watching his football games). Every family's different, so maybe your family isn't into splitting up an edible or two -- each to their own. But if your family is ready for an adventure (or you just want a little something to add to your own meal), here are five different foods that you can bring to the Thanksgiving table.
1. Cannabis-infused honey from Honey Pot 420
Grandma makes the BEST biscuits, but the honey she puts out for them doesn't exactly get you flying. Fortunately, HoneyPot420 sells terrific cannabis-infused honey, made right in California. This honey has one nine High Times Cannabis Cups, and boasts only three ingredients: Honey, coconut oil, and the good old sticky icky. Make Grandma's biscuits even better than they were when you were a kid!
2. Apple cider or tea with a nice canna-kick
Apple cider might be more of an October treat, but True Holistic Co. also makes tea and grape juice infused with 375 mg of high quality THC. That's a lot to be thankful for! Cannabis-infused grape juice, you can tell Aunt June, is basically wine, except it'll make you giggle instead of cry at the end of the night. Because there's nothing like a game of Monopoly with all of your relatives just a little too high to count up the bank correctly, right?
3. Get the gravy great
The Weed Blog has a recipe for cannabis-infused gravy that will take your potatoes, turkey, and green beans up to the next level. The recipe uses cannabutter, which you can grab at almost any dispensary, or if you happen to have any already-vaped bud around, you can mix that in with a few tablespoons of butter and cook away. Just make sure you put the special gravy in the red bowl -- don't let the kids' table have any out of that one.
4. Marijuana-infused pumpkin pie
Now we're talking! Pumpkin pie is already pretty great, but this recipe from The Cannabist takes this tasty treat up to the next level. Again, they use cannabutter to add a little lift to the proceedings, but there's only a tablespoon here, so you can save some from the gravy if you picked it up for that. Of course, if you're really gutsy (and have plenty of time off for Thanksgiving break), you could try making your own cannabutter on the stove top. Good luck!
5. And of course: The turkey.
And for those brave souls out there who want to go all the way, why not bring a turkey to Thanksgiving dinner that is sure to be a knockout (CBD and tryptophan? No one's going to be awake at halftime!)? Cut has some great directions on YouTube that are pretty simple, actually, especially if you're already planning on cooking the turkey anyway. Just think: Your parents might not want to eat some cannabis-infused bird, but your siblings and cousins will appreciate it, and when weird cousin Frank starts in on how great the Republicans are doing lately, you'll just be too darn high to care. Happy Thanksgiving!
