As the snow melts and the first green shoots of spring begin to appear, it’s a time of renewal and refreshment—not just for nature but for our diets too. Spring ushers in a season of light, vibrant foods that energize the body and uplift the spirit. Incorporating cannabis into your springtime meals can add an extra layer of relaxation and wellness to your routine. Here, we dive into cannabis-infused spring recipes that blend the fresh flavors of the season with the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

 

Understanding Cannabis Infusion

Before we embark on our culinary journey, it’s essential to understand the basics of cannabis infusion. THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids are fat-soluble, meaning they blend well with fats like oil and butter. This property makes them perfect for integrating into recipes. Start with a cannabis-infused oil or butter, which you can either purchase at a dispensary or make at home. Remember, the key to successful cannabis cooking is dosage control. Start low and go slow, especially if you’re new to cannabis edibles.
