We’re all busy these days, and it can really help the day to go a whole lot smoother if you keep a few recipes for easy appetizers on hand. If you want a solution to help you to truly unwind, then you can take things to the next level and experiment a bit with edibles. So, whether you’re looking to have an elevated and romantic dinner for two, or you’re in need of some ideas for finger foods that are easily turned into cannabis-infused morsels, this is the list for you.

1. Popcorn

Popcorn is one of the easiest finger foods to make out there, and the edibles version isn’t much more difficult. All you need is some good old fashioned cannabutter on hand, and you can whip up a whole bowl of cannabis-infused popcorn in a matter of minutes. Though you might want to melt it down and mix it with some regular butter, just to reduce the potency, all you need to do is drizzle some of the golden goodness over freshly popped popcorn and voila, this masterpiece is complete.

2. Mozzarella sticks

Mozzarella stick or any other dippable alternative such as jalapeno poppers, or pizza pops that go great with marinara sauce can make easy edibles appetizers in a snap, and you can even use pre-frozen store-bought products to make it happen. All you’ll need is a drizzle of cannabis-infused olive oil and your favorite kind of marinara sauce, and once you combine the two, every single dip of these cheesy treats into the sauce will turn them into edibles, which comes with the extra perk of having control over the potency.

3. Brownies

Brownies are absolutely delicious, and there are so many different kinds out there that it’s easy to find one that everyone likes. They also make simple appetizers on a serving table, and they can last for several days if you need to make them in advance of a certain occasion. The best part about the idea of this simple edible is that you can use any recipe that you like and adjust it to include a cannabis-infused ingredient. So, if it calls for oil, then replace the called for alternative with a cannabinoid filled version, and if it requires butter, then plain old cannabutter will do the trick.

4. Veggie platter

Easy appetizers are hard to come by, but it really doesn’t get any simpler than a good old-fashioned veggie platter. You don’t have to cook anything in advance or adjust the way that you prefer your favorite crunchy veggie finger foods at all. Instead, much like with the mozzarella sticks, it’s as easy as mixing a bit of cannabis-infused olive oil into the mix of store-bought dressing or using it to make your very own from scratch at home.

5. Nachos

Nachos are one of the most widely loved finger foods in the world. They go great as a side or they can be hearty enough to make up a whole meal that can be easily shared between several people without making a mess of dishes to clean up later, and there are a couple of different ways that you can turn them into edibles. You can use the sauce option, which would infuse only the cheese sauce with your choice of cannabis concentrate, or you could grill your hamburger with a light dose of cannabis oil for a potent kick that preserves more of the flavor, so you don’t have to change the way you make them, you just need to add one small extra step.
