Cooking with Cannabis – Pot Pizza

Pot… and pizza?! I’m not sure I can think of a better combination. This is it, guys. It’s all downhill from here. Until you eat the pot pizza, that is…

Ingredients

  • 1 prepared pizza dough (I recommend getting pizza dough from local shops – for example, Pizza Mondo here in Bend sells their dough and it is awesome).
  • 1 cup Cannabis Pizza Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup romano cheese, shredded
  • additional toppings as desired

Directions

  1. Prepare pizza dough in whatever way you prefer (oven, BBQ, etc.) If you are using an oven, preheating it to 400 degrees is the norm. Insider tip: When you’re preparing your dough, roll string cheese sticks into the outer edge to create your very own stuffed crust pizza! It’s outrageously delicious, especially if you warm the cheese sticks up a bit before you cook the dough to ensure they melt adequately.
  2. Spread Cannabis Pizza Sauce evenly on top of dough.
  3. Sprinkle cheese evenly on top of sauce.
  4. Add extra toppings as desired.
  5. Bake in oven for 18 to 25 minutes, or as desired, until cheese is golden brown.

Cooking with Cannabis – Chicken Soup

Who doesn’t love chicken soup? It’s the go-to comfort food for many folks, whether they’ve got a cold or they just need a tasty dish to warm their bellies. How could you possibly improve on this time-tested favorite? By medicating it with cannabis, of course, which can only serve to add to the medicinal and comforting benefits already prevalent in chicken soup. We found a tasty recipe for homemade marijuana chicken soup on the web right here, and we would love to share it with you. These proportions will make about 6 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon marijuana butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1/2 quart vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups egg noodles
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 7 grams of ground marijuana buds

You can also substitute the ground marijuana buds with droppers of cannabis tincture – however, the dosage of the tincture will vary between product to product. 

Directions

  • In a large pot, melt marijuana butter over medium heat. Cook onion and celery in butter until tender, or about 5 minutes.
  • Pour in chicken and vegetable broths and stir in chicken, noodles, carrots, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.
  • Add ground marijuana buds.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes before serving.

Cooking With Cannabis – How to Make Cannaoil and Cannamayo

Many cannabis edible recipes require cooking materials other than cannabutter (the recipe for which can be found here). Some, such as pasta, require an oil-based cannabis infusion, while others call for the use of cannamayo to create their delicious treats. Whatever you’ll be cooking, we have a couple recipes just for you.


How to Make Cannaoil

Ingredients: 

6 cups olive/canola oil

1 ounce buds, finely ground

or 2 ounces trimmed leaf

Instructions: 

1. In a heavy saucepan (or double boiler), slowly heat oil on low heat for a few minutes. You should begin to smell its aroma.

2. Add a little bit of cannabis to oil and stir until it is completely coated with oil. Continue to add cannabis in this fashion until the entire amount of cannabis is mixed into oil.

3. Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, stirring periodically. (For amounts larger than the quantities of cannabis listed, simmer for 60 minutes). 

4. Remove the mixture from heat and allow it to cool before straining.

5. Press the cannabis mixture against a metal strainer with the back of a spoon to squeeze all the oil out of it.

6. Save the oil in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two months and throw the leftover cannabis into the compost.


How to Make Cannamayo

Ingredients: 

1 cup Cannaoil

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

A pinch of sea salt

Instructions: 

1. Whisk egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, vinegar and mustard together thoroughly.

2. Add the Cannaoil slowly while whisking constantly.

3. Whisk until the mayonnaise begins to thicken. (Add a few drops of water if it becomes too thick).

4. Store mayonnaise in an airtight container. Chill in the refrigerator.

Cooking With Cannabis – How to Make Cannabutter

There are multiple ways to cook using cannabis, but most methods involve cannabis buds being mixed with cooking elements such as butter or olive oil, so that the cannabis is easily able to transition into a delicious form of medication. Cannabis infused butter and oil is made from the sugar trim leaves of cannabis – therefore, it is particularly high in THC content. We at Substance offer medicated cannabutter, both clarified and unclarified, at $20 for a 4oz jar and $35 for an 8oz jar.

In case you  were curious about the difference between clarified and unclarified butter – a regular stick of butter is considered unclarified. Butter is clarified in order to increase its shelf life, remove water and milk solids and increase its smoking point. In general, unclarified butter is better to use when cooking, whereas clarified butter is preferable if you are using it to medicate your tea, for example. 

If you are more inclined to make your own cannabutter, we have  a recipe just for you.


How to Make Cannabutter

Cooking time: 60 minutes

Servings:6 (1/2 cup of cannabutter) 

Ingredients:

1/4 oz of cannabis buds, finely ground

1/2 cup (one stick) salted butter (higher smoking point) 

(to make cannamargarine, substitute margarine for butter).

Instructions:

1. Melt butter on low heat in medium saucepan

2. Add ground buds to melted butter a little at a time, stirring in between additions

3. Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, stirring frequently (you should see bubbles slowly forming on the surface). 

General Rule: 1 pound of butter (4 sticks) can absorb 1 ounce of cannabis. For larger quantities, simmer for 60 minutes. 

4. Strain the butter into your container using a metal strainer to filter out the ground buds from the butter mixture.

5. Press a spoon against the ground bud in the metal strainer to release all the cannabutter.

6. You can use the cannabutter immediately or store in the fridge for later.
