Sloppy joes are one of those comfort foods that we all know about, but always seem to forget to serve for dinner. It’s simple, so delicious and kid-approved, which makes a perfect option for the whole family. The best part about this sloppy joe recipe is that unlike other edibles options, it’s super easy to separate right before serving, to infuse only one portion for the adults of the house, so that everyone can enjoy a quick and simple dinner.

  • 6 buns
  • 1 pound of lean ground beef
  • 2/3 cup of ketchup
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 bell pepper (cored and chopped)
  • 1 cooking onion (peeled and diced)
  • 2 tablespoons of cannabis cooking oil (preferably olive)
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of margarine
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoons of mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon of hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt


  • Saucepan
  • Ladle
  • Spatula


  1. Add the margarine to a saucepan and set the burner to medium heat.

  2. Once the butter melts, add the ground beef and cook the meat for 5-6 minutes or until it browns.

  • Use a spatula to break the hamburger into the smallest pieces, then drain away any residual grease.

  • Add the pepper, onion and garlic to the saucepan, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the onions are soft.

  • Now, finish by adding the remaining ingredients, except the cannabis oil, then cook until the sauce reaches a texture and consistency that you enjoy.

  • This step is the final one before infusion, so if you have hungry kids to feed or guests who aren’t fond of edibles, then now is the time to remove their share of the dish from the pan.

  • Drizzle the cannabis oil over the mixture and ensure that it is thoroughly combined with the sauce before serving it on buns.

  • How long do edibles take to kick in?

    Edibles are a delightfully, potent cannabis product that produces entirely different effects than you can expect from smoking weed, which is why it is so important to be careful not to overconsume. These goods are notorious for leading to overconsumption as they don’t take effect immediately. You will not begin to feel the impact from the edibles for anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours after the initial ingestion, which is why it is recommended to wait at least that long between doses.

    How long do edibles last?

    Cannabis edibles take a while for the body to process, which is why they take so long to be felt, but that also means that the effects can last for a more extended period than you would expect from smoking a joint. The effects from edibles can last up to 12 hours after the initial ingestion, which is why it is so important to take caution when choosing a dose, especially for new and low tolerance consumers.
