Summertime Cannabis Recipes

July 21, 2020

This summer you may be preparing food and drinks for your BBQ, going camping, or want something to cool off. Look no further — we have some cannabis-infused recipes that are fun homemade edible options! Below are five of our favorite summertime cannabis recipes of appetizers, desserts and beverages to help you enjoy summer. Remember to start low and go slow with any cannabis-infused food or drink and label your treats and leftovers.

1. Infused Elote (a.k.a. Mexican Street Corn)

Traditional elote is Mexican street corn that is smothered in mayonnaise and cheese then spritzed with lime. For this cannabis infused recipe, we will replace the mayonnaise with a spicy compound butter. We recommend grilling the corn in the husk on a hot grill, and then covering immediately with the butter and cotija cheese. Each corn cob contains 10mg THC.

Serves 10

10 ears of corn with the husks on
1 cup cotija cheese
1 lime
1 stick Sweet Grass Cannabutter (100mg THC)
½ tsp paprika
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp cayenne
½ tsp chipotle powder
½ tsp garlic powder (optional)

Directions for Compound Butter:

  1. Soften the cannabutter at room temperature.
  2. Slice the cannabutter into 10 pats.
  3. Using a food processor mix the butter and the spices until combined.
  4. Using a spatula transfer the butter mixture to parchment paper.
  5. Roll the parchment paper creating a butter log with an inch diameter
  6. Put butter roll in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  7. Slice butter roll into 10 pats

Grill Corn:

  1. Grill corn, turning often, at high heat (around 400 degree F) until each side of the husk is blackened. Some chefs prefer to soak the corn first in water but we like the texture that comes with using high heat and a shorter amount of time.
  2. Remove corn from the grill and carefully, using heat resistant gloves, peel back the husk.
  3. Smear 1 pat of compound butter all over the corn.
  4. Roll the corn in cotija cheese.
  5. Squeeze lime to taste on the corn and enjoy!
