Cannabis edibles have been around for ages, but their purpose and design have shifted greatly since they were first adopted by the greenery-loving generation that came before us. Plus, the legalization of cannabis in California – and other states – paved the way for a massive influx of new products on the market, edibles being one of the categories that expanded the most.
Strawberry Weed Jam
Why buy basic ass strawberry jam from the store when you can make a much more tastier version at home AND infuse it with weed? Sounds like a win-win situation to me. A key ingredient to strawberry weed jam is cannabis-infused syrup but don’t worry, you’ll learn how to do everything right here so read on.
CANNABIS MAPLE SYRUP
- 2 – 4 grams marijuana
- 1 cup maple syrup
STRAWBERRY WEED JAM
- 6 cups whole strawberries
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup weed-infused maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chia seeds (optional)
You’re also going to need a couple of jars to put your jam in.
Making the Cannabis Maple Syrup
- Preheat your oven to 240°F and grind your weed into a small oven-safe bowl. Cover the bowl with foil and place it in the oven for 30 minutes to decarb.
- Fill a saucepan until it’s about 1/4 full and place it on the stove over medium-low heat. Pour the maple syrup into a mason jar or ceramic bowl then add the baked weed. Place the jar in the saucepan of water for 1 hour to allow the syrup to heat up and infuse with the cannabis.
- Strain the weed syrup using cheesecloth to remove the plant substance and set it aside to cool.
Making the Strawberry Weed Jam
- Crush your berries in a large bowl, add it to a saucepan with the sugar and lemon juice, and stir over low heat until everything is dissolved.
- Transfer your strawberry weed jam mix to jars, leaving 1/4 headspace then seal tightly and let it cool before refrigerating. Enjoy!
