What are vegan edibles?

If you’re vegan, you don’t eat any products derived from animals — including milk, yogurt, cheese, meat, poultry, eggs, fish, and even honey. Vegan edibles are any food items with cannabis that do not contain any animal products.

How do vegan edibles affect you?

In edibles, the active ingredient is called tetrahydrocannabinol — also known as THC, which you may have heard of before! After eating vegan edibles containing THC you’ll begin to absorb it in your bloodstream. One important, very important, aspect of eating edibles is that absorption can be delayed, depending on how much of that edible you consumed and its potency. How much food is in your stomach is also a factor! Vegan THC edibles will affect you the same way that other edibles affect you, and that cannabis affects you. Edibles offer all of the benefits of cannabis without the negative benefits associated with smoking and have a longer effect on you too. The positive benefits of pain reduction, for example, last even longer.

As with all edibles, be sure to proceed with caution and start small, keeping the potency of the food and your own tolerance in mind. And always make sure to disclose that there is cannabis present when sharing with friends. A note to your roommate will go a long way when you leave some delicious-looking baked goods on the counter!

What basics do I need in these vegan marijuana recipes?

First thing’s first — you have to start with the basics. Each of the recipes we’ve rounded up for you requires the use of one of the following:

Vegan Cannabutter Recipe

We suggest baking these for your best friend’s birthday. We decided to share the best, first, one of our absolute favorites — delightfully fluffy, and enjoyable. These aren’t your typical vegan pot cookies. We might be biased, but we think these are hands down the best vegan edibles recipe. We’ll share step-by-step instructions for creating cannabutter too.

Ingredients:

for the cannabutter:

  • .32 g buds marijuana strain of choice

  • 50 g refined coconut oil

for the cookies:

  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax meal

  • 150 grams of vegan butter

  • 50 grams of cannabutter

  • 150 grams of brown sugar

  • 150 grams of white sugar

  • 4 tablespoons of warm water

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon of sunflower lecithin

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder 

  • 350 grams of flour

  • ½ teaspoon of salt

  • ¾ cup of vegan mini chocolate chip

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon of fleur de sel

Instructions:

To make the cannabutter:

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 245F 

  2. Grind the .32 g marijuana and spread out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

  3. Toast ground marijuana in the oven for 30 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven, and transfer to a pot with 50 g coconut oil and infuse over very low heat, being careful not to heat oil above 200F.

  5. Let this infuse for 3 hours minimum, and at a maximum 6 hours.

  6. Strain this mixture with a cheesecloth or a fine mesh sieve and discard the solids.

  7.   Let the cannabutter solidify at room temperature. Need to expedite this process? No problem, stick this in the fridge! And wallah, you have can

To make the cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  2. Combine the flax meal and warm water in a small bowl. Mix well! This mixture will be a substitute for egg. Ensure that it is mixed well. 

  3. Beat the vegan butter, cannabutter, brown sugar, and white sugar using an electric beater. This will take about 4-5 minutes.

  4. Add in the vanilla extract, sunflower lecithin, and flax mixture and beat for another 3-4 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the sides to ensure everything is evenly incorporated, and the mixture is fluffy and light.

  5. Now, add in the baking powder, salt, and baking powder. Beat until almost all of the mixture is incorporated.

  6. Add the chocolate chips in! Stir them to distribute evenly, but make sure not to overmix!

  7. Using a spatula, fold all ingredients together to incorporate any last bits of flour and evenly disperse the chocolate chips.

  8. Use a spoon or a spatula to scoop out the dough into even dough balls on the baking sheet, making sure to leave 1.5 inches between each dough ball.

  9. Add a bit of fleur de sel on top of each dough ball before putting in the oven.

  10. Bake for 8 minutes!

  11. Remove from the oven and let them cool before enjoying!

To start your morning and day off right, one of our favorite vegan weed recipes is a cannabis chia seed pudding. It’s completely vegan, healthy, and perhaps the best part is that you’ll prepare it the night before.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup, depending on how sweet you’d like it

3. Blend until smooth.

4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Vegan Pot, Pop-Tarts

These tasty treats are almost too good to be sure, but we assure you that actually isn’t the case! They are the real deal. They’ll bring up memories from childhood, but with a new adult twist. We’re sure you’ll love them and that they’ll be a new favorite vegan THC edible. 

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon of white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 1 cup of cannabis butter, chilled

  • ¼ cup of cold water

Ingredients for toppings!

  • ¼ cup of melted butter, use cannabis butter for more potent pot pop-tarts, or 

  • 1/4 cup of sugar

  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment to prepare the Pot pop tarts for their trip in the oven.

  3. While you wait for the oven to preheat, sift together the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

  4. Add in the chilled vegan cannabis butter with a pastry blender until crumbly.

  5. Add in the vanilla, and then mix in the cold water, 1 tablespoon, at a time, until the dough forms into a ball.

  6. Divide the dough into two pieces and cover with plastic wrap — chill in the fridge until firm. This will usually take about 1 hour.

  7. While you wait, beat the softened butter, ¼ cup sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl to make the filling.

  8. After 1 hour, roll out the dough on a floured surface — so that it’s ½ inch thick.

  9. Using a knife, cut the dough into rectangles.

  10.  Now it’s time for the filling! Drop 1 tablespoon of the filling you mixed onto half of the rectangles. Cover with the remaining rectangles — pressing the edges with a fork to seal firmly. 

  11.  Poke 3 holes in the top of each pastry with a toothpick or the tips of a form.

  12. Carefully transport the pastries onto the lined baking sheets, baking in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes. 

Make sure to let them cool for about fifteen minutes before eating them! Yum.

Cannabis Cashew Cream Stuffed Avocado

We love avocados, and we know you probably do, too. Besides being delicious, they are known for their many health benefits. They’re packed full of omega-3 and omega-6. This cashew cream is a delightful alternative to dairy.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoons of cannabis oil, depending on what potency you’d like

  • 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast

  • ½ cup of water

  • ¼ clove of garlic

  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon of tamari

  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

  • 1 cup of cashews that have been soaked for 4 hours and rinsed

For garnishes, you can choose from cherry tomatoes, finely ground brazil nuts, olive oil or balsamic vinegar. 

Ingredients:

  1. Prepare the avocados first. Cut them into halves, making sure to remove the pits. Also make sure to remove the flesh from the skin in a single piece with a big scoop. 

  2. Don’t throw the skins away! Set them aside on a plate because you’ll use them later. 

  3. In a blender, combine the water, cannabis oil, soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic, lemon juice, tamari, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Make sure to blend this until it’s smooth.

  4. Fill the avocado halves using a spoon with the cashew cream blend.
