Homemade cannabis “firecrackers”

A peanut-butter homemade snack that packs a punch gets a boost with cannabis

There is literally no end to the number of recipes that can be concocted with cannabis or one of its compounds, such as cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). From snacks to elaborate dishes, cannabis lovers are finding added passion for gastronomy through the plant and, fortunately, it doesn’t have to be a major ordeal to create many cannabis-infused recipes. One of these is probably the simplest around and should be stuck on the fridge of every cannabis fan. Enjoy the cannabis firecracker.

The recipe only requires three ingredients and 30 minutes from start to finish – five for prep and 25 for cooking. To get started, set aside 0.5-1 gram of cannabis, 1 graham cracker and two tablespoons of peanut butter (use an alternative, high-fat nut butter if you prefer).

Preheat the oven to 250F and grind the desired amount of cannabis. Spread it out on a foil-lined baking tray and put in the oven for ten minutes, then remove and let cool. Don’t turn the oven off, though – turn it up to 300 and let it heat up. Break the graham cracker in half and then dab the peanut butter (or your alternative) on each half. Sprinkle the toasted cannabis on one of the two graham cracker halves, using a knife or spoon to gently mix it into the peanut butter. Put the two graham cracker halves together, wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. That’s it – your snack is ready.

Don’t expect to feel the effects of the cannabis right away. Edibles typically need about an hour or so for the cannabis effects to be registered by the body. However, feel free to eat another if you’ve waited a couple of hours and still haven’t begun to feel more loose.
