  6. Take a pinch of salt and pepper to season each side of both fillets before placing them onto the beds of lemon slices.

  7. Put the cannabutter, honey thyme, and oregano into the microwave and heat it on high in 30-second increments until it turns into liquid.

  10. Bake the salmon foil packets in the oven for 25 minutes.

  11. Change the setting on the stove over to broil, and then cook the fillets for an additional 2 minutes.

  12. Remove the baked salmon from the oven and allow everything to cool for at least 5 minutes before unwrapping the fillets.

  13. Cut the fillets into halves and serve them with a fresh parsley garnish as either a main or side dish while piping hot.

The effects

The potency of this baked salmon recipe will depend entirely on the cannabutter that you use, but it is designed to provide a moderate dose that should be suitable for both infrequent and seasoned cannabis consumers. So if you’re just starting out with edibles, then you might want to only eat half of a serving, or water down the recipe by using regular butter in place of some of the called for cannabutter, as this deliciously intense combination will produce effects that may leave you glued to your chair for a little while if you aren’t used to edibles.
