Any food product made with marijuana — either the dried plant material or a concentrated infusion containing cannabinoids, such as Cannabutter or Cannaoil – is considered cannabis-infused food. Cannabis-infused foods may vary from simple Delta 8 edibles to more complicated and even gourmet meals like pancakes, pasta, or roasted veggies, available on dispensary shelves.
Other recipes leverage the robust terpene flavor profiles of cannabis for tantalizing, earthy products. In comparison, others use weed’s firm terpene flavor profiles for making delicious treats. In contrast, others mask the taste of cannabis in food to the point where it is nearly impossible to detect.
You could believe that the Dutch originated the notorious “smoke and a pancake,” — which is partially correct.

What Are the Benefits of Cannabis-Infused Foods?
Here are a few advantages of eating marijuana over different routes of consumption.
Omit the cigarette: Inhaling any smoke or vapor from cannabis-infused meals is not required, particularly beneficial for individuals who have asthma or are otherwise sensitive to smoke. Even for healthy people, inhaling smoke may have long-term consequences since it includes carcinogens from burning plant material.
Edibles are a relatively discrete method to consume marijuana since no smoke or vapor forms and no conspicuous equipment is required. Eating cannabis may seem as harmless as eating a cookie, sitting down to a gourmet dinner, or smoking a joint.
Lasts longer: No two highs are the same, and the effects vary depending on a variety of physiological aspects such as body weight, metabolism, and hydration level, as well as the quantity of cannabis taken and the strength of the strain. However, edibles considerably prolong the effects of cannabis; while a joint’s high lasts around two hours on average, an edible’s high may last up to eight hours. This lifespan is particularly beneficial to those who use marijuana to treat medical conditions like chronic pain.
More powerful: When you eat cannabis, you get a more robust “high” than if you merely smoke it. This factor is related to how marijuana is processed in the body when consumed. Your digestive processes transform THC into 11-hydroxy-THC, a more powerful version of the cannabinoid when it reaches your stomach and liver.
Methods of Cannabis Infusion
While adding decarboxylated marijuana to your recipe (as in many space cake recipes) is feasible, infusing oil or other fat-based media with marijuana and using it during the cooking process is becoming more popular. Using cannabis infusions increases the potency of your baked goods and allows you to hide the weed’s taste and scent, making cannabis infusions useful in a broad range of recipes. A few typical inputs to attempt at home are listed below.
Oil for cooking (Canna Oil)
Making cannabis oil has the extra benefit of utilizing it topically and in culinary dishes. Cooking oils such as avocado, olive, coconut, and safflower may be helpful to make cannabis infusions. You can pour cannabis cooking oil over salads, grilled vegetables, or mixed into caffeinated beverages like matcha lattes.
Butter with Cannabidiol (Cannabutter)
Cannabutter is a butter-and-marijuana infusion cooked for many hours over low heat. Like cannabis cooking oil, cannabis-infused butter is very flexible, making it ideal for use in baked products, popcorn, or just spreading over toast with jam.
There are many great reasons why cannabis edibles are better than other types of marijuana intake, but it boils down to individual preferences in the end. So, try these pancakes for yourself. If you do not like them, there are many other ways to customize your cannabis-infused foods.
