Grill Up These Cannabis Infused Dishes Before The End Of Summer!
Summer isn't over yet and we all know that weed and sunshine go together. But have you ever considered grilling up some cannabis-infused dishes for a summer cookout? It’s the perfect way to make a barbecue with friends one for the books. We’ve put together some awesome recipes to take your summer chilling to the next level.

But first, if you haven’t cooked with cannabis much, keep in mind that it’s just like taking an edible. The effects may be a bit delayed, but they are sure to come
on within half an hour to two hours. Don’t overindulge until you know your limits.
We know that everyone grills a little differently. These recipes aren’t set in stone, and they can all be adjusted to your liking. Don’t feel like you can’t take liberties with these recipes. The most important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t ever get your cannabis infusions too hot, which is why all of our recipes involve adding the infusion after the cooking is done. This prevents the compounds from breaking down and losing potency.
Without further ado, let’s dive into these summer cannabis barbecue recipes!
Cannabutter grilled corn
If you don’t already have cannabutter on hand, you’re going to want to make some. Adjust this cannabis coconut oil recipe by swapping out all mentions of coconut oil for butter, and you’re set.
First, make sure you soak and thoroughly clean your corn if the husks are on. You want to get any dirt and grime out of them, but leave a little moisture to help steam the corn as it sits on the grill. Ideally, you should soak the husks for at least half an hour before you begin to grill.
If you’re taking the husks off, you can just dive into the grilling part.
To grill, place the corn on the hot grill and turn every few minutes. You’ll need to do this for at least 15 minutes with the husks on, and a little less time if you’re grilling husk-free.
Once your corn is hot, charred, and ready to go, take it off the grill and place on a plate. At this point, you can butter up all the pieces yourself or allow your guests to prep their own corn.
To infuse your corn with weed, use a small scoop of cannabutter and spread it all over the grilled corn, followed by a sprinkle of salt. For a flavor explosion (or to cover a particularly weed-y smelling cannabutter), add some chili powder and lime.
Infused grilled baby red potatoes
You can’t go wrong with grilled baby reds, a cookout favorite.
Start by dicing up your baby red potatoes into medium sized cubes. Toss in a bowl with rosemary or other herbs, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and a tbsp of olive oil. Mix well and place on heavy duty or double wrapped foil. Now, seal the foil wrap carefully, ensuring your potatoes will not fall out.
Place on a hot grill and cook for about 35-40 minutes, flipping at least once halfway through. When the potatoes are fully cooked and fork-tender, place them back into a serving bowl and top with your desired amount of cannabutter. Stir carefully to not break the roasted potatoes up, but instead coat with a layer of cannabutter.
Cannabis infused burgers and hot dogs
What’s a summer cookout without the burgers and hot dogs? Whatever your guests are munching on, you can easily make it infused with the help of some condiments.
This is by far the easiest way to infuse a burger or hotdog with cannabis. You’re likely not going to need a full tube of ketchup or mustard for this, so we recommend filling bowls with the condiments you’ll be using and having your guests apply them with spoons.
Fill three separate bowls, one with ketchup, one with mustard, and one with mayonnaise. If you have other preferred condiments, go ahead and do the same with them.
Now, drop your preferred dose of cannabis tincture into each bowl and stir thoroughly. Bam! You’ve infused the condiments.
Your guests can add the cannabis infused ketchup, mustard, and mayo to any of their grillables.
Just be sure to use a cannabis tincture with a mild or complementary flavor. They come in a variety of options, but some make more sense than others. After all, nobody wants to eat ketchup infused with mint tincture, but a plain flavorless tincture would do well. Likewise, mixing a peach flavored tincture in mustard is likely to garner some negative feedback.
As we mentioned before, make sure you know your tolerance before you indulge too much in cannabis-infused foods. Remember that you can always eat more, but you can’t really take back what you’ve already consumed if you end up too high. Follow the golden rule: start slow and dose low.
And by all means, make sure your guests are aware of what they’re consuming. Unless you’ve explicitly told everyone you are creating a cannabis infused experience for them, it’s a good idea to have non-infused alternatives in case they don’t want to consume weed. Fortunately, these recipes all leave plenty of room to swap out canna butter or infused condiments with the real thing.
If your guests aren’t sure of their tolerance levels, be sure to remind them to start low and go slow as well. And make sure they have a way to get home safely that doesn’t involve driving after eating lots of cannabis.
