The cannabis-infused waffles are a delicious and nutritious breakfast. Cannabis’s effects on appetite, pain relief, nausea, and other medical benefits make it an appealing treatment for many people. You can also use this recipe to improve your mood or just have a good time with friends. So here is how you can make cannabis-infused waffles:
- cannabis (Wedding Crasher or any strain you like);
- butter/oil of choice;
- crushed berries/juice (and sugar depending on preference);
- blender or food processor.
-Take your cannabis and grind it into a fine powder. The more ground up the weed, the faster it will extract so make sure to use enough power when grinding for best results;
-Add in butter or oil of choice (either can be used);
-Stirring constantly over medium heat on stovetop until mixture is fragrant, then remove from heat source;
-Combine water with crushed berries/juice and sugar depending on preference and stir well; pour the mixture into blender or food processor – this process should take about five minutes before you see the liquid coming out of the bottom of machine;
-Place batter back onto the heated surface for another five minutes before turning off burner;
-The finished product should have an orange tint. Add in vanilla extract if desired.
Tip: Use cannabis butter (recipe below) in place of the oil if you prefer not to leave any residue so it doesn’t get into your cooking utensils, etc.

Recipe number two
What you’ll need:
- Cannabis butter (recipe below);
- Flour or corn starch for a baking mix, preferably one that is already used in your region. This recipe should work with any type of flour but you will have to experiment depending on what the product does and doesn’t include;
- Milk or almond milk – Depending on vegan preferences; soy if necessary as well. Almond milk requires more water than regular cows’ milk would be needed so adjust accordingly, it also has less fat which means that eggs are not necessary; dairy alternatives can be substituted for cow’s milk without issue: hemp, rice, oat, etc.; this will save some calories! If using full cream products like whole milk, use less sugar to keep the dish balanced;
- Vanilla extract and salt, are an absolute must;
- Vegetable oil for the waffle iron;
- Cannabis – use cannabis that is already used in your region. This recipe will work with any type of flour but you’ll need to experiment depending on what products are available; I recommend using light, fluffy flours like white rice or whole wheat pastry because they absorb less liquid and lead to lighter waffles. We don’t want dense weed waffles;
- Brown sugar (or vegan brown sugar) if desired; can be substituted with other sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup. You may also add cinnamon into this mixture if wanted.
Preheat your waffle iron according to manufacturer instructions. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix until they’re well combined with no clumps left behind. If you’ve used almond milk then make sure it is mixed thoroughly into the batter before pouring onto each heated waffle square (or follow guidelines for whichever type of milk you have). Close lid on top of machine securely so that steam can’t escape while the cooking process begins – this will ensure that your cannabis butter doesn’t burn off or get messy! After two minutes have passed, remove from heat and serve hot with syrup. Enjoy!
Optional toppings and garnishes
- maple syrup;
- fruit compote;
- cannabis salt (to sprinkle on top);
- other toppings or garnishes of your choosing. Optional: honey, whipped cream, chocolate chips – whatever you want to make it even tastier!
We recommend adding in some dairy-free milk for a creamy texture and less sugar content. For an extra indulgent waffle, try drizzling with Nutella or melted dark chocolate once the waffles are cooked through. A fruity twist like this can be really satisfying if you’re craving something sweet but also need that hint of THC to help get over the hump! There’s no wrong way to eat these baked goods so have fun experimenting with toppings and keep the name of the dish in mind when thinking about what to add.
Tips for making cannabis-infused waffles:
- You’ll want to make sure that you measure the cannabis so as not to under or overdose on THC. A good rule of thumb is 0.25 grams per person if you’re just adding it into a batter, but for a more intense effect try using an extract rather than raw plant material;
- Make sure your cannabis oil has been decarboxylated and heated at least until 160 degrees Fahrenheit before cooking with it;
- Keep in mind that fats are less stable when exposed to heat which means they can go rancid faster. It’s best to cook these waffles without fat like butter or vegan shortening; instead, use coconut milk (or other dairy-free milk) along with eggs and flour for a lighter texture. Add your wet ingredients to the dry for a light and fluffy batter;
- Add about one tablespoon of cannabis oil into the mixture with eggs, coconut milk (or another dairy-free milk), flour, baking powder, vanilla extract;
- Mix until well combined. If you’re using cannabis butter or an extract it’s important not to over mix the dough so that there are no air pockets in the waffles; let stand while preheating the oven.
The history of cannabis
- Cannabis is a plant that has been used by humans for thousands of years to make food, medicine, and other products. It first became illegal in the U.S on a federal level when it was made an enemy substance under the Marijuana Tax Act in 1937;
- In 1996 California legalized cannabis use at any age with a doctor’s recommendation for medicinal reasons (approval can be given so long as you have one of over 100 state qualifying medical conditions). Seven more states followed suit and passed similar laws during 1998 – 2000;
- Now, 22 states plus Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Uruguay allow this product to be sold recreationally without needing to possess a specific qualifying condition or need approval from their physician/doctor;
- California has the most licensed dispensaries in the U.S., with over 850 as of September 2016;
- In 2012, Colorado legalized cannabis use and announced that it will regulate cultivators and distributors instead of banning them from selling weed products;
- The legalization of Cannabis is growing globally; Uruguay was the first country to legalize recreational pot use in 2013 while Canada recently became the second nation to do so on October 17th, 2018.
