This cozy PSL-style drink has a little something extra that will help you kick your winter cold. 

  • 3 cups oat milk
  • ¼ chocolate bar (8.75 g) That’s a Spicy from Chill THC, roughly chopped
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped

Pour milk into a medium saucepan and place over medium heat. Do not bring to a boil.

When the milk is steaming, pour it into your blender with the Chill THC chocolate and the semisweet chocolate. Add pumpkin puree, sugar, and spices. Blend until smooth.

Place the hot chocolate back on the stove on low heat to keep it warm.

In a large bowl, combine the coconut cream and the powdered sugar. Use an electric mixer to beat the cream until soft peaks form.

Pour the hot chocolate into mugs and top with a generous spoonful of coconut cream. Garnish with cinnamon stick if desired. Serve immediately.

Slow cooker butter with marijuana flower recipe

CBD Slow Cooker Cannabutter

Makes 1 cup (2 sticks of butter). Courtesy of Cannabis Cheri.

CBD-rich cannabutter will bring anxiety levels down and inject some good vibes into your dishes. 

  • 1 ¼ cups unsalted butter
  • 7 g Grandaddy Quin or other CBD-heavy marijuana flower
  • 4 cups water

Spread the Grandaddy Quin out into an even layer on a baking sheet.

Heat the oven to 280F. Bake the marijuana for 40 minutes, then let cool. Grind into a coarse powder.

Add the Grandaddy Quin, butter, and water to your slow cooker and leave it on low for a minimum of 4 hours.

Strain the butter mixture through a cheesecloth and into a large bowl. If the butter is not going through, pour additional boiling water through the cheesecloth to loosen it from the marijuana. Discard the spent marijuana and chill the butter overnight.

The butter will rise to the top in the refrigerator. Retrieve it and discard the extra water. Store extras in the refrigerator or freezer.

Vegan OG garlic olive oil with marijuana flower recipe

VEGAN OG Garlic Olive Oil

Makes 1 jar. Adapted from the Munchies recipe.

This vegan cannabis-infused oil is great for vegan recipes and Italian food. We’ve added a little bit of garlic for better depth of flavor. 

  • Large pot of water
  • 1 oz (14 g) Tahoe OG or other OG marijuana flower
  • 4 cups of olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic

Spread the Tahoe OG out into an even layer on a baking sheet.

Heat the oven to 250F. Bake the marijuana for 25 minutes, then let cool. Grind into a coarse powder.

Place a heat-resistant item (silicone or metal) on the bottom of the pot of water. Place your jar on top of this item, to prevent it from touching the bottom of the pot. You want the water surrounding the jar on all sides, but not getting inside the jar itself. Place it on the stove to warm (but not boil).

Peel and chop the garlic, then place inside the jar. Pour olive oil over.

Leave the jar inside the hot water-filled pot for 2 hours at medium-low temperature.

Strain the olive oil mixture through a cheesecloth and into a bowl. Clean the jar, then pour the strained mixture back inside. Cap the jar and store extras in a cool, dark place.
