There are certainly more refined ways of doing things, but not everyone has the time or the patients to sit down and figure out how to infuse useful ingredients the right way, and that’s ok because there are other options out there to choose from including decarbed cannabis. The downside of doing things this way is that it can significantly alter the texture of everything that you put it in, so do so sparingly and slowly experiment with different options until you find one that you like.

1. Honey

Cannabis honey can make a fantastic addition to all different kinds of foods. It’s great to spread across a nice piece of toast or to toss into recipes and making some is as simple as dumping in some decarboxylated weed. The best part about this combination is that you can see the cooked pieces, so it’s easier to ensure that it is evenly mixed together.

2. Nutella

Nutella is a staple for many households, even more so than honey, which is why it made this list of top ten things to infuse with decarbed cannabis. It’s thick and rich, and the velvety texture coats all the crunchy little bits to make them a whole lot less noticeable when they’re spread on crackers or toast or drizzled over pancakes.

3. Peanut butter

Peanut butter is a long-time associated stoner food, but it’s one of the few
things on this list that truly had most of what you need to make it through the day. This protein spread combined with some decarbed cannabis can taste delicious on almost anything, or you can use it for baking to your heart's content for delicious edibles.

4. Oil-based salad dressing

Oil-based salads can be easy to throw together without any skills in the kitchen, and this is the ideal place to use your decarbed cannabis, as the crunchy additions like bacon bits will help to mask the presence of the plant materials. Though professionals might prefer a slightly more complicated straining process, this is an excellent way to instantly make edibles.

5. Gravy

Gravy is an incredible topping option that goes great on just about everything from meat and potatoes to veggies, so it makes a perfect food to toss in a dash of decarbed cannabis. This way, you can instantly infuse anything you like including roasts, stews, soups, and more, and it all starts by adding a small amount to the base ingredient. Though you will need to cook, the extra effort is more than worth it.

6. Cookies and other baked goods

If you’re looking for a really easy way to make instant edibles without using a popular topping choice, then you might want to consider starting with some simple baked goods. Even if you aren’t up to making them from scratch, you can buy pre-mixed dough, and then just add in the special ingredient before the delicious cookie dough or cake batter then bake according to the directions, and you’ll have cannabis desserts in no time.


7. Waffles or pancakes

These delicious cakey foods are most popular for breakfast, but everybody knows that they can be incredible at any time of day. They are really easy to whip up, using basic ingredients or a box mix, and you can instantly infuse the batter by adding the decarbed cannabis before you fry or cook them. The best part about this idea is that it makes the crunchy bits softer, disguising the presence of the special ingredient with ease.

8. Spaghetti sauce

Not everybody like sweet treats and that is also true among cannabis enthusiasts, many of whom choose the hobby for health purposes, and for them, spaghetti sauce might be the ideal place to start. It’s simple, straight from the jar, and the decarbed cannabis can be added like you would with any spice. All you need is a small pinch here and a dash there. Just be careful not to go overboard, because it’s easy when the weed looks like it disappears from sight once it’s in the sauce.

9. Jam

Yes, we know, back to the spread, but jam offers a sweetness that cannot be compared to any other thing on this list. Even honey cannot provide the tangy-sweet delight that goes along with jam, and those that are made with whole fruits contain tiny seeds, so it isn’t abnormal to get the odd crunch here and there which makes it great for masking the cannabis taste and texture. It can also be added to all of your favorite easy foods for instant edibles, like toast, crackers, fruit, ice cream, and more.

10. Nacho sauce

This is an excellent instant edibles idea if you’ve got several mouths to feed, or if you just want something that offers less sweetness and more savory cheese and fat which always goes down easy. You don’t even have to go through the effort of making it from scratch, just decarb some cannabis, and toss it into a bowl along with some store-bought nacho cheese sauce, and you’ll be in heaven in no time at all.

Don’t have decarbed weed on hand? No problem!

Decarboxylation might sound like a fancy word, but it’s not hard to do at all, in fact, anyone with an oven can pull it off as long as they have the cannabis to do it with. You’ll want to start with cured flowers or leaves for the most potent hit, grind up everything, and then bake it in the oven at 330°F for between 35 and 40 minutes. Once you retrieve it, the cannabinoids will be activated and ready to be served as edibles.
