As the wise Kelso from That 70s show once said: “It’s Thanksgiving; some people bake pies, we bake ourselves.” Our response? How about both? Now while all families may not be keen on infused dishes, if yours is, if you’re having a Friendsgiving, or just celebrating solo, we’ve compiled five optimal ways to infuse your Danksgiving meals and ensure you’re not too full for seconds #Munchies. That being said, before the list there is a short list of three important considerations before such.
- Make sure if you’re sharing that your loved ones know the food is infused, and do not infuse dishes children can access.
- Make sure you and your loved ones know your dose. If they aren’t sure of their dose or are new to edibles, START SLOW! You can always eat more.
- Make sure you have plenty of non-medicated food too! Don’t make the rookie mistake of getting the munchies and eating too many edibles! Having a plethora of non-medicated dishes will ensure you have a good time the whole time.
Now that those are out of the way, without further adieu here are five ways to infuse your Thanksgiving dishes with cannabis!
4. Add some Sprinkle to your food!
The easiest and most versatile way to medicate your meal is utilizing the product Sprinkle, which we carry at the shop! Sprinkle is a powder that can go in your mashed potatoes, on your buttered roll, or even on top of your cranberry sauce! It’s also a particularly excellent choice given its precise dosing, at 10mg a packet, it is easy to control and keep your milligram consumption in check.
3. Infuse your veggies!
You may have not loved veggies as a kid, but this is a great way to encourage you to eat them as an adult! Infuse the amount of olive oil you are intending on using on your veggies beforehand, and boom! You’re ready to go. Since this is harder to dose, it’s recommended you keep it a very low dose.
2. Infuse the Gravy
Gravy may be a feat for the more experienced cook, but we believe in you! Because gravy is made by creating a roux using butter and flour, we recommend making cannabutter, then using such as the base! Like the veggies, this is a bit more difficult to dose, so keep the milligrams on the lighter side!
1. Infuse the Pie
We think this is the ultimate way to add an infused element to your Danksgiving! Like the previous recipe, make cannabutter, then let it cool so you can turn it into pie dough! Pie is ideal for dosing because you can divide the amount infused by 8 slices, making dosing a little more precise than some of the other options. Don’t forget important consideration number 3: have non-medicated leftovers and desserts on hand for after this medicated slice hits – you’ll be ready for seconds and possibly thirds!Whether or not you decide to incorporate cannabis in your Thanksgiving meal, we hope you have a fun and safe holiday. Next time you’re in the shop, your patient consultant can direct you to any of the products listed above! Remember, gratitude holiday or not, we are thankful for YOU and your choice to be a part of the Local Joint family!
