Unforgettable Edibles

Fall Favorite Recipes for Beginners

October 5, 2023

Cannabis Edibles are all the Rage

From sweet treats to savory dishes, you can find edibles for any meal of the day that appeal to all kinds of palates. While there are tons of tasty products available to purchase, why not infuse cannabis into your own home cooking? The idea of making your own edibles has struck fear into the hearts of many, but we’ll help it all make sense for you. Follow these simple recipes and you’ll be making delicious and perfectly potent edibles in no time!

Best For Beginners: Cannabutter

THC is highly fat-soluble, so it binds really well with butter. Since so many recipes are made with (or made better by) butter, this is the perfect place to start!

The THC in cannabis needs to be activated by heat before it gains its signature effects. This is done in a process called decarboxylation or “decarbing”. It’s science! It’s chemistry!

Fortunately, it’s also easy:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 220° F
  • Grind or break up about 1g of dried cannabis flower (keep the pieces large enough to be strained out)
  • Line a baking sheet or glass pan with parchment paper and spread the flower out evenly
  • Bake for 30 minutes, mixing the flower around a few times throughout baking
  • Allow to cool before infusing

Now for the infusion:

  • Melt one cup of butter in a saucepan
  • Add in decarbed cannabis flower and simmer for at least one hour on low heat (high temps will burn out important cannabis compounds), stir every thirty minutes
  • Place a mesh strainer or cheesecloth over a bowl and strain butter to remove the bits of flower
  • Put butter in a sealed container and refrigerate until solidified

Now you have Cannabutter and can use it in any recipe!

How Strong is My Butter?

How do you know how potent your Cannabutter is? This will depend on a few factors such as temperature, but mostly has to do with the THC levels of the flower you started with.

Our handy dosing calculator will help:

  • For the above recipe, you used 1g of flower, equal to 1000mg
  • If your flower tested at 20% THC, then 20% of 1000mg = 200mg of THC
  • Now you know that the 1 cup butter you made has 200mg of THC
  • 1 cup has 16 tablespoons, so 200mg divided by 16 tablespoons = 12.5mg of THC per tablespoon of Cannabutter
  • If you had used the same amount of flower for only half a cup of butter, your Cannabutter would be twice as potent at 25mg of THC per tablespoon
  • Based on how much butter is in your next recipe, you can determine how many mgs of THC are in the full dish. Then divide by the number of servings, and you’ve got your dose!

Cannabis Infused Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

One fall favorite that never fails is this delicious, hearty squash soup. Creamy, buttery, and delicious, this dish is sure to leave everyone feeling warm and fuzzy! Make your Cannabutter from the recipe above, then let’s dive in!


  • 2tbsp of Cannabutter
  • 1-3 lbs of butternut squash
  • 2 cloves of pressed garlic
  • 1/8 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 to 2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
  • Heavy cream to drizzle
  • Chopped parsley for garnish


Squash Prep

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Cut butternut squash in half, coat with butter, salt, and pepper
  • Place squash face down on pan and roast until tender throughout
  • Using a large spoon, hollow out squash and discard the outer skin

Soup Time

  • In a large pot, warm olive oil over medium heat
  • Add chopped onions and cook until soft
  • Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about another 2-4 minutes
  • Add roasted butternut squash and nutmeg to pot and stir for 2 minutes
  • Add vegetable or chicken stock and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Puree soup, either with an immersion blender or by cooling soup slightly and using a regular blender
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Serve with a drizzle of heavy cream and garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds and chopped parsley

The potency of this soup depends on the THC of your flower. If you followed our Cannabutter recipe with 20% THC flower, this full recipe would have 25mg of THC. Divided into 5 servings, each serving would contain 5mg of THC. Check out the dosing calculator above for more details.

Making your own edibles is as simple as that! It’s best to know your flower’s THC testing levels so you can determine potency ahead of time. Flowers with different strengths and terpenes can affect the strength and flavor of your dishes, so make sure check your local dispensaries and find the strain that’s best for you!
