Just when you think you’ve experienced all there is to love about bacon, you learn about cannabis-infused bacon. Aside from the marvel that is the union of these two royalties, the real ingenuity lies in utilizing the bacon fat for activation of the THC in the cannabis (similar to cannabis-infused guacamole). This allows preparation of a medicinal meal using the raw plant, as opposed to purchasing or preparing cannabis oil or butter. Further, the versatility this offers is invigorating; is there a dish that isn’t improved with the addition of bacon? Let your mind run wild.
Notably, this is for all the people that love cannabis and bacon. This recipe shows you how to combine these two ingredients to create cannabis infused bacon fat. Delicious THC bacon grease can be used for all kinds of savory weed edible recipes. Consider THC rice dishes, weed sauces, or THC bacon and eggs. You can even sprinkle some of this THC bacon infusion on your pizza. Doesn’t it seem that bacon pairs well with just about anything?
Why try this recipe over cannabis butter?
Cannabis is usually infused with butter or oil. That is why you see and hear a lot of people using cannabis butter and oil in weed edible recipes. Excitingly, cannabis infused bacon fat can be used to make the same recipes. Obviously, weed infused bacon fat is far more delicious. In addition, THC bacon fat camouflages the taste of cannabis buds much better than cannabutter.
How do I use my THC bacon fat infusion?
Excitingly, your weed bacon fat will wow your dinner party guests. Add delicious flavor to your recipes while adding a THC dose with this unique weed edible. Try smothering brussel sprouts with this oil. Roast your oil laden sprouts in the oven for 45 mins. This crispy and potent way to enjoy vegetables will blow away your guests. Craving a loaded baked potato? Add cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, and chives to your potato. Then, garnish with this amazing bacon flavoured weed oil. Essentially, you can garnish any meal with this savory flavor.
How do I get my THC Infused Bacon Fat started?
Firstly, render your bacon fat by cooking bacon. The trick is to cook the bacon slowly on medium heat. This way the bacon will not burn. At the same time, decarboxylate your cannabis. This activates the THC in your buds. The rest of the recipe is exactly the same as making a batch of cannabutter.
Recipe for Bacon-Infused Cannabis (or “Bacanna-bliss”)
- Bacon, sliced
- Cannabis, ground into a fine powder
Preheat oven to 225°F. Spread the ground cannabis onto a cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
Place the desired number of bacon strips (let’s not kid ourselves here, you’ll probaby use the whole package) on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Once the cannabis is done baking, remove and preheat the oven to 275 °F. Sprinkle the baked ground cannabis over each strip of bacon, adding more or less depending on the desired potency (it may be easier and/or faster to use a salt shaker for this process).
Bake the bacon for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, flip the strips, and sprinkle cannabis over the other side. Bake for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
All leftover fat on the cookie sheet is medicinally active, so you may want to save it and get creative! One quick option is to soak up the grease with bread and voila: cannabis bacon bread. You could also use it as an oil substitute for egg scrambles, stir fry, etc.
If you’re feeling adventurous, consider making bacon cups. Instead of laying the bacon flat on a cookie sheet, cover the back of a muffin tin with tin foil and wrap bacon around each of the cups. Depending on the size of the cups, you may want to slice the bacon strips in half. Sprinkle each bacon mold with ground cannabis like you would strips. Bake for 20 minutes at 275 °F (no need to flip and season halfway through).
