      • bringing this article to life was indeed my pleasure. also, weed bacon. it’s real. also, is it ok that when i hear “weez-it” i think lil wayne or that pokemon, weezing.

        • I def thought lil wayne and immediately put on Tha Carter III and danced in front of the mirror in my frog boxers and dollar-store sunglasses. My dog was very confused.

  1. Carmen your expertise and dedication to disseminating edibles knowledge bring tears to my eyes

    • it’s almost enough to consume one per day so 4/20 never ends, but alas, leftovers it is

  2. Agh! Lost my weed dealer in my breakup with my ex-ladyfriend and I am upset about it, particularly on this day of all days, when I just want to make some gosh-darn coconut-cayenne weed truffles and watch Orphan Black.

      • Right? Right? And I can’t for the life of me find a replacement! How difficult can it be to find a weed dealer in a liberal college town? Apparently very.

      • Um hello yes. It’s a little approximate b/c you’ll kind of need to go by feel/taste (that’s, uh, what she said??)

        12 oz dark chocolate
        1/3 cup heavy cream
        1/2 cup weed-infused coconut oil
        1 tsp cayenne pepper
        1/4 tsp flaky sea salt
        1 tsp cinnamon
        1 vanilla bean (or some vanilla extract)
        1/4 cup toasted shredded coconut

        Chop up the chocolate and put it in a heat-proof bowl with 1/2 tsp of the cayenne, 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon, and the vanilla. Heat the cream and weed oil over the stove until just before it starts to boil, then pour the mixture over the chocolate and stir till it’s all combined (it takes awhile because of the oil, but persevere! if the mixture cools off too much, you can zap it for 15-second intervals in the microwave). Once it’s combined, chill it in the fridge for about an hour, till it’s solid. In the meantime, combine the toasted coconut with the rest of the cayenne and cinnamon and the sea salt. Scoop out the chocolate mixture with a spoon and form each spoonful into a ball by rolling it between your hands (then roll in the spicy coconut mixture). Place the finished truffles on a cold plate/baking sheet/something, chill in the fridge for a bit, eat, get baked.

        Perfect for freezing midwestern winters but probably pretty excellent everywhere. :)

  3. Sooo… I read that title and was psyched to think of finding ways I might actually enjoy garden weeds such as dandelion greens (wild ones) and chickweed, which are both popping up now that the snow has melted.

  4. This post is insane! So many recipes! I’ve never experienced edibles in any form other than sweet (cookies, brownies, peanut butter cups) but this post is pretty inspiring! I’m sending it to my mom, queen of the medicated cookie.

    • savory edibles just seem like so many dreams all wrapped up into one dream that you put in your mouth

  5. Really, no gay brownies on this list?

    Also, no green dragon martini(well really any alcohol 100 proof or higher)? Medicinal burritos, something you know most people I this day would want.

    • hi there is green dragon AND a martini on this list! and no burrito but three tacos. so.

      all the brownies on this list are gay. you heard it here first.

      • Not the same green dragon I am familar with. As most recpies I have seen suggest alcohol in the 100 proof plus range(really 150+ range) as thc, cbd in cannabis binds better with higher content booze. Most people I asked online said everclear works best if you can get it, and to avoid stuff like 151 rum and absinthe as they don’t bind as well. I’ve made it a few times with everclear and can certainly say it works really well. To well in fact if you drink 100ml bottle. Not talking about the drunk portion either.

  6. Carmen, would it make you less sad if I told you I had a dyslexia moment and read the title as 420 instead of 240?
    Cause I did.

    • that would make my day so hard. in fact, it would retroactively make yesterday the best 4/20 ever.

    • i want to make up names for weed items that involve a variant word to describe weed for the rest of my life, is that possible

  7. Great recipe list, the links to one site for some recipes wasn’t working but the rest were great :D

  8. Never. Ever. Put decarbed, ground weed on bacon. Put it in some coconut oil/butter. And enjoy much more of a high
