Cannabis-infused jambalaya recipe

Published Apr 8, 2019 11:30 a.m. ET

Jambalaya is a hearty North American dish that is traditionally prepared using vegetables, rice and smoked meat like sausage. This recipe can be altered to adjust to your personal taste by using other alternatives such as shrimp, chicken, crawfish, or pork instead of plant sausage. It’s a one pot wonder that dates back hundreds of years and is enjoyed by many including the cooks who make it for its simplicity, and the guests who enjoy it so much, especially on a cold winter’s day. It’s spicy and healthy making a perfect pick me up for when you’re sick, and is also a comforting, more familiar dish for intimate gatherings. This pot-infused version on an old classic is potent and averages around 30mg of THC per individual serving.

  • 28 ounces of stewed tomatoes

Most would agree that this pot Jambalaya just isn’t the same if you go altering too many ingredients. However, some do find the spice to be a bit too intense. Cut the spice added in half for a milder version that is a little easier on the taste buds. The meat is the only other part that I would ever recommend changing. To do this maintain the same weight measurement of total meat and using different variations. For example, you could use one pound of shrimp and three of sausage, or a little over a pound of each one. This can help you to keep recreating this delicious dish in an exciting and different way every single time.

Edible dosage

It can be incredibly difficult to accurately predict how much THC might be contained within one serving of a homemade cannabis edible. This recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of cannabis-infused olive oil which would include around 30mg of THC if you made it using a marijuana plant product that averaged a low 10% THC and if you used 14 grams of cannabis to make 1 cup of infused oil. To adjust how strong this or any other edible may be, you can use either more or less marijuana plant matter to result is a stronger or lighter effect. The same range is also relevant to infused butter recipes, so pay attention to how your cannabis edibles affect you and adjust the strength accordingly.
