Creating Cannabis-Infused Marinades

Cannabis-infused marinades can add a subtle yet delightful cannabis flavor to your BBQ dishes. To make an infused marinade, blend THC oil with herbs, spices, and acidic ingredients like citrus juice or vinegar. This mixture not only tenderizes meats but also infuses them with a mild cannabis undertone.

Steps to create a cannabis-infused marinade:

1. Choose Your THC Oil: You can make your own cannabis oil or purchase a pre-made oil from a dispensary. If you make your own, remember to decarboxylate the cannabis first to activate the THC.

2. Mix Ingredients: Combine the THC oil with your favorite herbs, spices, and acidic ingredients. Common choices include garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon juice, and vinegar.

3. Marinate Your Meat: Place the meat in a resealable bag or a shallow dish, pour the marinade over it, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Infused BBQ Sauces

Cannabis-infused BBQ sauces are another way to incorporate cannabis into your summer meals. By simmering THC-infused oil with your favorite BBQ sauce base, you can create a customized sauce that suits your taste and desired potency.

How to make cannabis-infused BBQ sauce:

1. Prepare Your Base: Start with your favorite BBQ sauce recipe or a store-bought base.

2. Infuse the Oil: Slowly heat THC-infused oil and mix it with the BBQ sauce, stirring continuously to ensure even distribution.

3. Adjust Potency: Depending on your preference and tolerance, you can adjust the amount of THC oil used to achieve the desired potency

THC-Infused Desserts

For a sweet finish to your BBQ, experiment with THC-infused desserts. Classic options like brownies are always a hit, but you can also try something unique like fruit skewers drizzled with cannabis-infused honey.

Dessert ideas:

– Cannabis Brownies: Use a cannabis-infused butter or oil in your brownie recipe for a classic treat.

– Fruit Skewers: Drizzle cannabis-infused honey over fresh fruit skewers for a refreshing and sweet dessert.

Dosage and Safety Tips

When cooking with cannabis, it’s crucial to dose mindfully to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. Here are some key tips for infusing:

1. Start Low and Go Slow: Begin with a small amount of THC and gradually increase if needed. This helps avoid overconsumption, which can lead to discomfort.

2. Label Clearly: Clearly label any infused dishes to avoid accidental consumption, especially if there are guests who prefer not to consume cannabis.

3. Keep Non-Infused Options Available: Provide non-infused versions of your dishes so that all guests can enjoy the meal comfortably.


Decarboxylation is a crucial step when making your own cannabis oil or butter. This process activates the psychoactive properties of cannabis, ensuring that you get the desired effects in your infused dishes.

How to decarboxylate cannabis:

1. Preheat Your Oven: Set your oven to 240°F (115°C).

2. Prepare the Cannabis: Break up the cannabis into small pieces and spread it evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

3. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even heating.

For convenience, consider using pre-made THC oils from us! These oils are already decarboxylated and ready to use, saving you time and effort.
