Calories: 119

Servings: 6


  • 1 full head of cauliflower (chopped into florets)
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of white milk
  • 1 cup of hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of cannabutter (melted)
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ kosher salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Ranch dressing (optional)


  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie sheet(s)
  • Large bowls
  • Whisk
  • Medium bowl
  • Sauce brush
  • Tongs


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

  2. Line the cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper.

  3. In a mixing bowl add the flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper and milk and whisk the ingredients together until they are thoroughly combined.

  • Drop the cauliflower florets into the batter ensuring that each one is entirely coated before placing it onto the prepared cookie sheets.

  • Toss the dipped cauliflower florets into the oven for 15-20 minutes, and while you wait, prepare the homemade buffalo sauce.

  • In a clean bowl, add the hot sauce and melted cannabutter, and whisk together until the oils from the butter no longer sit on top of the mixture.

  • Once the cauliflower wings are finished cooking and are golden brown, toss them in the barbeque sauce right before serving. Use ranch dressing or blue cheese to dip as they contain the most complementary flavors.

  • The effects of marijuana edibles

    The results that you might experience from consuming edibles is difficult to predict, as each person has a different tolerance level and rate of cannabinoid absorption. However, we do know that the effects of marijuana edibles are typically much stronger than smoking, which is why they so often lead to adverse sensations when they are overconsumed. The reason so many people end up eating one too many weed brownies is that they taste delicious and take quite a while for the marijuana effect to kick in.

    From the moment you ingest an edible, it can take up to 2 hours for it to make it to the stomach where the powerful cannabinoids are absorbed and able to enter the bloodstream. That is why it is so important to always wait at least 2 hours between servings. That way you’ll have a reasonable amount of time to responsibly assess the situation, which will help you to achieve the most enjoyable experience possible.

    How long do edibles last?

    It is important to recognize that edibles are not the same as smoking a joint, which will wear off in 1 or 2 hours. These infused goods have powerful effects that can last up to 12 full hours after ingestion.
