This hearty family favorite is perfect for those cool summer nights, and the crisper temperatures come fall. It’s also the perfect time of year to get a hold of fresh and local pumpkin, which adds a rich flavor and texture that will keep you coming back for more. This edibles recipe might appear more complicated than your typical weed cookies, but rest assured, this is one ideal for both new and more experienced chefs. For the purposes of simplicity, the ingredients list does not provide canned measurements, though they can be used. However, using fresh, organic veggies can make a world of difference in the taste of the results.

Makes: 8 servings
Duration: 1 hour


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • ½ cup shredded cheese (any flavor)
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 4-6 tbsp of cannabis oil (olive)
  • 1 white cooking onion (chopped)
  • ½ tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp cumin (ground)
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 ½ tsp coriander (ground)
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 18 oz roasted tomatoes (including juice)
  • 14 oz black beans

1 large pot
1 mixing spoon


  1. Pour the cannabis oil into the large pot and set the burner to medium heat.
  2. Once the oil is hot, sauté the garlic and onion together in the pot.
  3. When the onions begin to change to a more translucent appearance, you can add in all of the dry spices and combine them well.
  4. Now add in the pumpkin and break up any chunks by scraping the bottom of the pot to avoid scalding.
  5. Add the ground turkey to the mixture, along with salt and pepper, and let the ingredients simmer until the meat is cooked entirely.
  6. The turkey will reach a deep brown color once cooked, and that is when it is time to stir in the tomato paste.
  7. All of the fresh peppers and fire-roasted tomatoes can now be added to the cooking pot and combined with the sauces.
  8. Cover the dish with a lid and allow the veggies to simmer for 20 minutes and be sure to stir the mixture frequently during this time.
  9. Remove the lid, and add in the black beans, before covering the pot once more, and simmering the chili for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Scoop the chili into portioned dishes, and garnish with shredded cheese and or sour cream.

How long do edibles stay in your system?

Edibles effects are nothing like those that come from smoking. They are longer-lasting and often considered to be much more intense than other methods of ingestion. The THC from an edible may stay in your system for nearly a month, but the effects of THC typically wear off in anywhere from 6-12 hours. They can also up to two whole hours to be felt, which is why it is always recommended to stick to one serving and wait for at least two hours before considering more.
