People have been growing, smoking and eating Ganja in all parts of the world for many, many years. Therefore, it is grown in different climates which is why we have so many different strains with a great variety of names.


Resin made form the plant is called cannabis, hashish, hash or pot. It comes in the forms of a light crumbly slate, or hard darker moroccan to soft, oily black.


It is well known that very small amounts of ganja can help with migraine, depression, glaucoma, nausea, also for those with PMT's and also as muscle relaxants. It can also aid sleep, relieve stress and help with eating problems. It is by no means the cure for all ills, however, it can offer natural relieve to some.


Freshly picked ganja is very acid in THC. This converts to non acid THC when cooked and will increase potency. However, over cooking will destroy the THC. Hash made from the best part, the buds and oils, is more concentrated and potent, and it's effect lasts longer. Potency, however, will depend very much on the type of ganja used so don't eat too much too quickly, as the effects of eating will certainly make you more stoned and for a lot longer than you would from smoking the same amount. An empty stomach will speed things up further. Be warned though, if you have plenty of food in the house it's almost guaranteed you will have major munchies! Once you start eating, it will bring your feet back to the ground a bit, especially if you have a full meal afterwards.


The buds of the female plant should be used more sparingly than the leaves. Hash (resin) will be a lot stronger too. The oils can be up to four times the strength of the hash they were made from.


Buds should be snipped off with a good pair of scissors and a food processor is quick to chop up those leaves to a fine powder with only a little grinding needed.


Most recipes contain some sort of fat or oil. If you combine your Ganja with butter you will have made 'Cannabutter' which can be used in your own favourite recipes. In India 'Cannabutter' is known as 'sacred ghee'. The 'ghee' being clarified butter meaning all impurities have been removed. This will keep longer if you don't have a fridge! Also, a lot of the recipes i'll be posting here can be frozen successfully. This way you can make larger amounts without having to worry about getting through it all in one night. Just freeze a load and defrost the amount you want!


Right.... onwards!

1lb (450g) butter

1 oz (28g) good ganja or hash or 2 oz (57g) leaves



Melt the butter slowly in a pan. Grind down your Ganja to a fine powder and sift out any stalks. Gently add to the melted butter and stir in well. It will turn dark green if you're using grass. Keep on a low heat for up to half hour without letting it burn whilst giving it plenty of stirring. Then pour through a fine strainer squeezing all the butter into a jug. You can use the mush in a drink or simply compost it. Pour your Cannabutter into jars and seal them tightly for storage in the fridge. If you cover the hardened butter with a little water, this will help it keep a little longer.


Ounce weights

Butter 16oz   8oz       4oz       2oz        1oz

Ganja 1oz     1/2oz    1/4oz    1/8oz     1/16oz






This will stop your butter from going rancid if you don't have a fridge. It will also have a nutty, butterscotch flavour (if that's what you fancy!) 


Heat 1lb of butter slowly. Bring it to the boil and remove the froth from the top and discard it. Carry on until it stops frothing. Your Ghee is now ready to add the Ganja using the same amounts as with Cannabutter (Above). If you're using hash, firstly heat it in a metal bowl over a low heat. When it is warmed through, it should crumble into a fine powder. hash will dissolve quicker than grass so stir it into the Ghee on low heat for about 15 mins, then strain and store as with Cannabutter.






If your ganja is very acid in taste, this preparation will help overcome the bitterness.


Firstly, fill half of your pot with crushed Ganja and fill to 3/4 with water and melted butter or oil, using 1 part oil to 4 parts water. Boil gently for 30 minutes. Stir as much as you can and using a large spoon to remove any debris. Allow the mixture to cool and then place pot in the fridge or freezer if you have used oil. When the butter has hardened on the top it can be removed, used or stored.






This is also a useful way to prepare your Ganja leaves, especially if you need a light fat content for a recipe.



4oz (113g) ganja

10oz (300ml) water



Place ganja in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil. Build for 5 mins, then strain and remove any stalk or seed, then squeeze out any remaining water. Then using a little milk, grind your ganja in a pestle and mortar to form a thick paste ready to use.






Put 1/2 oz of good buds or 1oz of leaves into a mason or kilner jar and cover with rum or brandy, and leave to soak for 1 week. Then place the jar in a pan of shallow water, loosen the lit to allow the fumes to escape and heat gently for 30 mins. Strain the liquid while it is still hot. if you wish to add some hash, do it AFTER straining. Pour the liquid back into the jar, add 1/4 oz (7g) of good Ganja buds or 1/2 oz (14g) of leaves, replace the lid and leave for another week. Repeat the whole process another two times. Your liquid should now be dense with resin. Strain well and bottle in a clean wine bottle. Shake well before use!






First prepare your Cannabutter and allow it to cool. Then take your fresh herbs and chop finely.



For every 2oz of Cannabutter use:

1/2 tbs of chives

1/2 tbs of parsley

1/4 tsp of tarragon

1/2 tsp of wholegrain mustard




using a fork, blend the ingredients together and allow to stand and cool before use. If you like a garlic butter, add a crushed clove to your Cannabutter. It doesn't want to be too strong as it can be a bit overpowering with the flavour of Ganja.






Hash oil comes in different refinements from brown oil being its crudest to red, amber, honey and white oil being the best.



Heat a tablespoon of Ghee or Butter for each gram of oil used. Then add to your oil and stir in well. Next add 1/2 a  cup of runny honey to each gram of oil used. Stir in over a low heat, pour into jars and allow to cool before putting the lids on. One teaspoon should be sufficient for one person. It is nice on toast or in a cup of hot water for that good morning cup of hash oil tea!

1oz (28g) butter

1.5 fluid oz (28ml) of rum

4oz (113g) chocolate

4oz (113g) icing sugar

1oz (28g) cocoa or vermicelli

1/8 oz (3.5g) hash or 1/4 oz (7g) good buds or 1/2 to 1oz leaves



Melt the chocolate slowly in a bowl over a saucepan 1/4 full of water or use a melting pan if you have one. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter and add ground ganja or crumbled hash (or melt down your ready made canna butter). Then add rum and stir in. Next add the melted chocolate, stir in well and remove fro the heat. Sift in the icing sugar and combine with a spoon until the mixture falls away from the sides of your pan. Instead of using rum, you can also use whiskey, chocolate liquor or southern comfort. The list is endless so why not try using your favourite tipple? :)





BUTTERSCOTCH FLAVOUR - hash is better in this recipe. The ice cream will have a better colour and nicer flavour. 


Makes 20-25 servings



2 tbs of butter

1 pint thin cream

3oz (85g) sugar

pinch of salt

3oz (85g) bhang paste or 1/4oz (7g) hash finely crumbled



Heat your cream slowly to near scalding. Heat the butter and sugar and salt adding your bhang or hash. Then add cream. Leave to cool then place in freezer in a suitable plastic tub. After 2 hours take out, beat well and put back for 1 hour. It is now ready for eating!





An easy sponge for 8-10 people



6oz (170g) plain flour

6oz (170g) margarine

6oz (170g) sugar

3 eggs

3tsp baking powder

a drop of milk

1/8 (3.5g) oz hash or 1/4 oz (7g) good buds or 1/2 oz (14g) leaves



​Put the lot into processor and switch on for two minutes! Or put it all into a bowl and beat like mad. Then pour into 7 inch greased tin and bake for 25-30 minutes at 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Remove, allow to cool then turn out onto a wire rack.


You can also use the mixture to fill little paper cake cases for 24 to 30 individual cakes. If you don't have either of these, then clean out two opened tin cans, grease well, line with greaseproof paper , sticking ou about 1 inch and be careful not to cut yourself! Divide the mixture, fill just over half way and bake.


You can add 1oz of cocoa and use only 5oz of flour for chocolate sponge cake. Or you can use some grated lemon rind or juice of a lemon instead of milk for a lovely lemon sponge. Or add a teaspoon of hot water and add instead of milk. Cover in cream or butter cream:


4oz (113g) butter

7oz (198g) icing sugar

1-2 tbs of hot water


Beat until light and creamy and cover cake.

5oz (142g) plain flour

1tsp bicarbonate of soda

pinch of salt

1/2oz (14g) ground leaves or 1/4oz (7g) good buds or 1/8 (3.5g) hash

Gonna process some kief, then de-carb and mix w/coconut oil. Then use oil in following recipe:

  • 4 egg whites
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup or honey
  • dash of salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of Maca Powder
  1. Whisk the egg whites with a dash (1/4 tsp) salt until stiff.
  2. Add honey, vanilla, coconut, melted coconut oil and Maca (if using).
  3. Carefully fold into egg whites.
  4. Let the mixture rest in the fridge for 30 minutes so that the coconut can soak up the mixture.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  6. Gently spoon in 1 tablespoon scoops on to parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 8-12 minutes until just starting to brown.

Only issue is, I need to somehow increase the amount of oil as 1 tbsp doesn't seem like enough...or perhaps I could make the oil really strong.

      Cooking 101: 
      A Stoner does not need lab grade equipment or a big fancy kitchen to make great tasting and potent edibles. Its nice to have some glassware, cheesecloth or other material for straining, an assortment of funnels is nice as well. One thing to keep in mind is that quality of hash/buds/trim will greatly impact your final product "Trash in, Trash out" is the saying. Using concentrates rather than weed will also help not have that "weedy" taste to your edibles as much of the plant material has already been removed. 

      This is the process that transforms the compound THCA into the psychoactive THC. THCA is reported to have neurological and anti-inflamitory properties, but it won’t get you ripped, stoned, high, OR baked. You’ll heat your trim/buds to around 240°, causing the carboxyl group to be released, leaving you with active Tetrahydrocannabinol. Now that you know that your THC is activated, you can effectively infuse your Cooking oil or Butter at a lower temp (around 160°). I’ve found that this makes for better flavor, and scientifically, you won’t risk the loss of terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids from your oil or butter getting too hot. These compounds evaporate quickly when the cannabis is heated over 270°. Did you know that a regular lighter puts off heat at more than 450°. So when you light up, you destroy many compounds that make marijuana so healing and awesome (another great reason to eat or vape it).

      How To Decarb:
      I do the same amounts every time, so I put 150 (or 300 if doing double batch) grams of fairly well broken up nuggety trim (edit:  pulse a few times in food processor. The smaller you make it, the easier it is). Cover cookie sheet with parchment, lay out material in as thin a layer as possible, then cover cookie sheet with foil Place in cold oven and heat to 250* Fahrenheit then reduce heat to 220*. Set timer for 20-30 minutes (depending on how old - fresher material needs a longer decarb). When time is up, Turn oven off and open door for a couple minutes then shut and leave to cool. Do not open foil until completely cool or you will lose precious vapors.
      It's used in food processing to make less sugar appear 'sweeter', less chocolate more 'chocolatey', and in pharmaceuticals to enhance the effectiveness of medications, it homogenizes and safely coats, then breaks down substances, into more fine, smaller particulates, promoting vastly improved systemic bio-availability within your body. Simply put, breaks the glands down faster, making the heating process more efficient, reducing the risk of damaging the material from possible over-processing.

      Lecithin increases the availability of everything from sugars to vitamin C, to prescription pain meds, and the increase in availability on contact is said to be between %15 and %75 depending on the substance, vitamin, or chemical. Meaning, the correct addition of lecithin to for instance, vitamin C, reduces the quantity of ascorbic acid you need to consume in order to achieve the same effect, by more than 50%. You can see how this applies to the use of digestive-resistant canna in edibles.
      As Lecithin increases absorption of THC and other Cannabinoids into your cell membranes. It doesn’t technically make your oil “more potent.” It makes your oil more effective, so a 100 mg dose will still be 100 mgs, but the effects will come on faster and will feel stronger. This way, you can use less oil in your recipes (thus conserving your ganja) or use the same (thus getting you really baked). Player’s choice. From my experience, adding lecithin keeps the feeling from getting “peaky” and makes the experience of eating edibles more mellow and pleasant. Lecithin has gotten a bad wrap because of its use in processed foods, pesticides, chemicals and drugs, in these cases It’s usually genetically modified.
      When you buy an edible in a store, it will probably say something like “50 mg” or “100mg”. But what does that number mean and where does it come from? Can you figure it out for your homebaked edibles? Yes!
      Let’s do some Arithmetic: (That is Stoner Math)

      1 gram cannabis = 1000mg of dry weight
      On average, most marijuana strains contain about 10% THC. That would mean that out of 1000mg of dry weight, 100mg of that would be THC.

      Sample A = 20% THC
        Sample B = 12% THC
        Sample C = 10-23% THC
      If we bake a big cookie using 1 gram of Sample A, it would be approximately 200mg.
        If we bake that same cookie using 1 gram of Sample B, that cookie would be approximately 120mg.
        If we bake that cookie using 1 gram of Sample C, that cookie could be anywhere from 100-210mg.  
      If you know the strain, you can look up the THC percentage online. (May or may not be correct), If you get your cannabis from a dispensary, you’ll know exactly how potent your strain is and can dose your baked goods accordingly by doing a little bit of stoner math. If you grow your own or just don’t Know you will have to resort to the tried and true way of.....Testing it on yourself, I know its upsetting.

      Calculating the dosage depends on a variety of factors like:
      Reason for use
        Your own tolerance
        Marijuana THC% and storage
      In my experience, if you’re using edibles for daytime chronic pain relief or depression, and you have a strong desire to function, small doses taken throughout the day seem to be the most beneficial. If you’re using it to help you sleep, but don’t want to have the notorious weed food hangover, starting with a small amount in a sleepy tea blend of Valerian root, mint and chamomile and working up to the perfect dose is best.
      If you and your friends want to get really really baked for something like the a Party, use more.

      Even if you smoke lots of marijuana, edibles can have a completely different effect on you. However, if you continue to eat edibles as a form of treatment (or recreationally), your tolerance will go up and you’ll have to adjust your dose accordingly.

      Light, Heat and Oxygen are all detrimental to THC- Store your weed in a cool dry opaque container where temps stay about the same all the time.

      The potency of your oil or butter will vary. As a cannabis home cook, you’ll learn how to test your oil by using yourself as a human guinea pig. The key is starting with the lowest safe amount and working your way up from there by taking another small dose every hour or so until you get the desired effect.
      Once you know what the perfect serving size for the oil or butter is, You can tweak any recipes by adding more or less marijuana infused butter or oil and increasing the use of regular butter or oil in each recipe to effectively strengthen or weaken your edibles.

      If This all sounds like a major amount of work, Check out the Magical Butter Machine. Our friend @fruit_loops was kind enough to do a post on how much he enjoys his and offer a review of the product you can see below.

      The first thing to do before making butter, oil, hash oil, etc. is to de-carb. Basically this is what you are achieving :   Decarboxylation - A method of making the THC more psychoactive through controlled heating.  I would credit the website I got that from, but am medicated and forgot, my bad.  But basically that is what you are doing, making your cooking material more effective.
      To de-carb:
      cookie sheet
      turkey bag
      I do the same amounts everytime, so I put 150 (or 300 if doing double batch) grams of fairly well broken up nuggety trim (edit:  pulse a few times in food processor. The smaller you make it, the easier it is)  into turkey bag. Put on cookie sheet and spread it out evenly then press air out and roll and fold edge under trim to hold it in place. Place in cold oven and turn on at 225. Set timer for 20 minutes. When done. Turn oven off and open door for a couple minutes then shut and leave to cool. Do not open bag until completely cool or you will lose precious vapors.
      EDIT: I have started doing a different method...cover cookie sheet with parchment, lay out material in as thin a layer as possible, then cover cookie sheet with foil and put in cold oven. Heat oven to 250f then reduce to 220. Leave in for 20 to 30 mins (depending on how old - fresher material needs a longer decarb).
      That's it, you are ready to make butter or oil or or or...
      ....info credit here goes to BadKittySmiles
      **EDIT:  I now decarb in the same dish I make my butter in. Spread material in a 9 x 13 pyrex and cover with foil. After decarbed, follow with Build A Better Butter in same pan
