Try These Savory, Not Sweet, Cannabis Edibles
Infused candies are good once in a while, but sometimes we need savory alternatives to satisfy our cravings.
For those of us who prefer to eat cannabis instead of smoking or vaping, these days we have many options. When recreational cannabis was first legalized (and even to this day), popular edibles could be found in the form of the famous brownies, suckers, and other candies like gummies or lemon drops.
However, some people prefer healthier options. And some just don't have a sweet tooth.
Luckily, cannabis-infused ingredients for cooking are now being sold in dispensaries so we can make our own recipes. If you come across infused butter, coconut, canola or olive oil, flour, honey, milk, or even barbeque sauce, it may just be the perfect time to grab some and hit the kitchen with these savory cannabis-infused recipes!

Baked Bud Bacon
*Required infused ingredient: NONE – Just decarboxylated cannabis
That’s right – you can infuse your morning bacon with cannabis. It gives a different meaning to the phrase “wake and bake”! The recipe is simple and requires only that you have ground, decarboxylated cannabis and some bacon strips! You sprinkle the cannabis on the bacon and as it cooks, the natural fats from the meat ensure the cannabinoids infuse the bacon. See the detailed recipe here.
*Required infused ingredient: Canna Cream Cheese + Baked Bud Bacon
We have a recipe that involves frying without vaporizing THC and CBD. The trick is to fry fast as the cannabinoids remain safe within the inside of each jalapeno. These make a great snack on game day or as an appetizer for barbecues. And the best thing is, you can experiment using different cheeses or adding other delicious ingredients into the Canna Cream Cheese before stuffing the jalapenos. See the detailed recipe here.
Salmon & CannaHoney-Mango Salsa
*Required infused ingredient: CannaHoney
The combination of mangoes and honey truly combine effortlessly in this recipe, giving the salmon entrée a sweet and citrusy flavor that can only be described as divine. A variation of this recipe requires a grill to sear the fish over coals, giving it a rich smoky taste. This might be sweet, but it’s also quite savory and delicious. See the detailed recipe here.
Mari Mac & Cheese
*Required infused ingredients: CannaMilk and/or CannaButter
If you want to know the simplest and quickest way to create cannabis-infused macaroni and cheese, look no further. Really – all you need to do is use CannaMilk when making box mac & cheese – or CannaButter (or both for extra potency!). However, we do have a homemade recipe you can try out for yourself.
