Most people think of sushi as an elegant dish that should only be prepared by the professionals, but with a simple recipe to guide you on your way, you could quickly be saving hundreds of dollars that you’d normally spend at a sushi buffet, and there is no sushi anywhere that will get you high quite like this one. So, if you want to indulge in the finer things in life, and get wrecked while you do so, this is an excellent place to start.

What is sushi?

Sushi comes in different varieties, flavors and combinations, but typically they consist of a seaweed wrap, a fish base, some kind of vegetable or fruit, and rice as a filler. Some people are under the impression that sushi can’t be cooked, and while technically traditional sushi is typically prepared raw, if that makes you question trying it, then you can always steam your meat of choice to soothe your nerves.

What type of sushi is this?

The cannabis-infused sushi that we’ll show you how to make today is generally made using a raw sushi-grade salmon, rice, and an avocado filler in layers that look incredible once they’re wrapped up together. This low-calorie sushi also contains no mayonnaise, so you can eat to your heart's content and not feel a single bit bad about it.

How to make sushi rice

Sushi rice is a bit more complicated than ordinary varieties, but with a bit of direction and a few tips along the way, it’s really easy for anyone to make at home, and it doesn’t take long to do it.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Calories: 112 Calories

Servings: 6


  • 1 cup uncooked sushi rice
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ¼ cup of rice vinegar
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis-infused vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Strainer
  • Saucepan with lid
  • Small saucepan
  • Wooden spoon


  1. Dump the rice into a strainer and run it underwater until it runs clear out the other side.

  2. Now add the rinsed rice to a saucepan along with the water, stir everything together well, then bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

  3. Once the liquid starts to bubble, reduce the heat to low, and then cover the saucepan with a lid, and let it cook for 20 minutes.

  4. After 20 minutes, all of the water should be absorbed leaving the sushi rice pieces tender and ready for the last step.

  • Set the burner to medium heat, add the vinegar, cannabis oil, sugar, and salt to a new saucepan, and keep on mixing it all together until the sugar dissolves.

  • Leave the sauce to cool for 5 minutes and then pour it over top of the cooked sushi rice. At first, it might seem like you have too much liquid but after a few minutes of stirring, the rice pieces will look dry again, and this is when your sushi rice is finally prepared to be made into something greater.

    There is something exotic and intimate about sharing a roll of sushi, which could be why the whole experience is something that is complimented quite well with the addition of cannabis. The very best part about this sushi recipe is that once the rice is done, you’re all done cooking, which means no accidental burning or difficult timelines to work within, so don’t be afraid to take your time and get creative.

    Preparation time: 15 minutes

    Calories: 190

    Servings:  6 rolls


    • 6 sheets sushi-grade seaweed
    • 1 full batch of prepared sushi rice
    • 1 avocado (peeled and thinly sliced)
    • ½ pound sushi-grade raw fish (or steamed fish of choice)
    • 4 oz cream cheese (softened)
    • ¼ cup of soy sauce


    • Bamboo mat
    • Spoon
    • Spatula
    • Sharp knife


    1. Put one layer of the sushi seaweed sheet onto a bamboo mat.

    2. Spread an even layer of the previously cooked rice onto the sushi sheet.

    3. Use a spatula or rice paddle to smooth out the layer of rice.

    4. Next is the layer of sushi-grade or steamed fish, which should be cut thinly enough to cover the whole thing.

    5. Spread the creamed cheese and avocado around next, and you can try to stay uniform, so there is a little bit of each in every bite, or you can do half and half to add the element of surprise to the experience.

    6. Roll the wrap tightly and then cut it into even slices with a sharp knife.
