Why You Will Love This Guide

With Thanksgiving coming up, my members of my Well With Cannabis Community have been discussing all the tasty meals they’ve been enjoying throughout the years – and what would be best infused.

From the turkey to the pie and everything in between – we all agreed that these infusion ideas have the opportunity to make your holiday ten times better.

But, there’s just one problem, not everyone knows how to infuse some of their favorite dishes – so, that’s where this guide comes in.

Whether you want to make it easy and start with my Bliss Cannabutter or use your own homemade infusions, I have listed several different options for how to every recipe.

Here, you will find an endless amount of food and infusion options for your Holidaze or Danksgiving celebration, as well as my safe dosing recommendations to ensure everyone has a great experience.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

Cannabutter Board

Yes, what you eat before the meal is just as important as the meal itself!

As you prepare for the big day, consider adding a unique and festive twist to your traditional spread with my take on the viral cannabutter board.

Not just an appetizer, this dish is a conversation starter that can bring both flavor and joy to that start of your gathering.

This board features both sweet and savory options, offering a unique experience combining culinary delight with the soothing benefits of cannabis.

Plus, when you use my high-quality cannabutter, you will have better control over the dosing.

Deviled Eggs

Did you know 53% of Americans serve deviled eggs on Thanksgiving?

They are the perfect bite-sized appetizer to enjoy before the big meal, and can be customized so many ways.

They are easily infused with several different infusion methods including decarbed cannabis.

The Turkey

For most Americans, the number one traditional Thanksgiving dinner staple is the roast, or fried, turkey.

Fun Fact: We raise our own Thanksgiving turkeys every year. They taste so much better, and we know that they lived happy lives and were fed nutritious foods.

No matter where your turkey comes from, there are two different ways you could infuse the turkey with cannabis:

  1. Add a few grams of ground, decarbed cannabis flower to your poultry seasoning and apply liberally when you season the bird. Just know that there is no good way to accurately dose this way!
  2. At the very end of the cooking process, baste the turkey with cannabutter.

Mashed Potatoes

I don’t know about you, but I am super picky about my mashed potatoes, I only want my mom’s recipe!

I don’t know how she makes them, but here are all the ways I would suggest she could infuse them:

  1. Top the mashed potatoes with cannabutter.
  2. Stir in any type of cannabis oil. This is especially helpful if you or your guests are vegan or vegetarian.
  3. I think my mom puts a splash of milk in her mashed potatoes, so cannabis milk or heavy cream would work perfect here.
  4. For a pretty visual presentation, you could add a sprinkle of ground, decarbed cannabis flower to the top as a garnish.
  5. You could also top with a pinch of cannabis salt.

Stuffing or Dressing

Stuffing or dressing, it is herbaceous, delicious, and perfect for infusing with cannabis.

I personally love the taste of cannabis and like using it as a spice, like you would rosemary or oregano.

And in this recipe, the terpenes of all of the herbs pair perfectly together.

To make infused stuffing or dressing I would:

  1. Add the ground, decarbed cannabis flower right in the spice mix when you are adding the other traditional herbs, like sage.
  2. After baking the stuffing, top with a few teaspoons of cannabutter.

Homemade Gravy

Thankfully my husband is such a talented Chef, or I may not have known the beauty of true, homemade gravy.

Whether you make it with pan drippings from your turkey or an easier way, there are a few different ways you could infuse.

  1. My husband said his preferred Chef way would be to make a roux with cannabutter and then make the gravy with that – yum!
  2. You could also stir in any type of cannabis oil or cannabutter in with the gravy before serving.

Baked Squash or Glazed Carrots

What would Thanksgiving be without that bright orange color of yummy glazed carrots or warm, baked butternut squash on the table?

There are many tasty ways you could infuse this dish, depending on whether or not you want a sweet or a savory flavor:

  1. I’m a sweets girl, so my favorite way would be to top the carrots or squash with cannabis sugar or even cannabis brown sugar.
  2. But nothing is better than sugar mixed with butter so I may also top with cannabutter as well.
  3. If savory flavors are your prefernece, feel free to sprinkle that ground, decarbed cannabis flower or kief over the final dish.

Green Bean Casserole

My favorite Thanksgiving dish and I am picky about this one too, only my husband’s green bean casserole will do. How would we infuse this?

  1. Chef Phil says he would also make a roux with cannabutter here for the mushroom base as his prefereed infusion method
  2. Sprinkle with ground, decarbed cannabis.

Cranberry Sauce

I don’t know about you, but there are always two bowls of cranberry sauce on my kitchen table: a canned version and a homemade version.

Everyone just loves both options, and it’s nice to enjoy each.

While you may not be able to infuse canned cranberry unless you dust some cannabis sugar on top, it is very easy to infuse homemade cranberry sauce.

Just swap cranberries for the mixed berries called for in this recipe and learn how to infuse with either cannabis sugar or a cannabis tincture like the Green dragon or Golden dragon.

And there are many different ways to infuse this classic staple.

  2. Add cannabis concentrates to the butter or oil used in the crust
  3. Add decarbed cannabis or kief directly to the pumpkin pie spice
  4. Use white or brown cannabis sugar in the mix

Dosing Guidelines

Just remember, you don’t need toand probably shouldn’t – infuse ALL of these dishes – depending on your desired total dosage of the meal.

Depending on the preferences of your guests, you should aim for a meal with no more than 10-20mg of THC total – per person.

We all have different endocannabinoid systems and tolerance levels and even that may be too much for some people.

If you’re not sure, be proactive and ask what your guest’s personal sweet spot for dosing is.

A few questions can help you plan accordingly – especially if you have guests who prefer to microdose.

Once you know your main dosage goal, you can use my dosage calculator to input different amounts and come up with a plan.

Remember, it’s not all about THC.

You can balance your meals out with different cannabinoids and use CBD flower or oil or even CBG flower or oil to offset the effects of the THC.

Caution is advised here, especially if you’re new to cannabis edibles.

You just don’t want to run the risk of anyone overconsuming and not being able to enjoy the experience!

Remember the golden rule: start low and go slow (especially if you don’t know your own personal tolerance, yet).

Have A Safe Thanksgiving

As I mentioned before, don’t feel like you need to infuse everything on your Thanksgiving table.

Pick a few key items and dose accordingly. Make sure you know the tolerance levels of your guests and keep that in mind.

A cannabis-infused Thanksgiving should be enjoyed by all, and that means staying safe and not overdoing it.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  1. I add cannabutter to almost each dish I make every night. I haven’t quite mastered the tincture yet but I’m still learning.

  2. Emily, it’s fantastic to hear that you’re incorporating cannabutter into your daily meals! It’s such a versatile ingredient and can really enhance both the flavor and the therapeutic benefits of your dishes. Don’t worry about not having mastered tinctures yet – remember, it’s all about the journey, not just the destination. Learning new things takes time and practice, and it’s great that you’re persevering and continuing to learn. Keep up the great work, and keep enjoying your cooking!

  3. Hi Emily,

    I just wanted to thank you for posting your Canna-Oil recipes! You gave me the confidence to try making my own oils. Without going into a long story, I can tell you that you are instrumental in changing my life! You inspired me to give it a shot and it was by accident that while decarboxylating, my toaster oven ran too hot, destroying the THC, but before knowing anything about CBN, I created the perfect sleep aid (I take it with THC) I’ve been searching for since my ruptured brain aneurysm/stroke back in 2008 left me with some serious insomnia issues. I’m now making THC (at the correct temperature), CBD, CBG and of course CBN.

    I can’t thank you enough!
    Much love,

  4. Mike, I’m so happy to hear that you’ve found some relief for your insomnia issues through my recipes. It’s amazing how sometimes, even what we perceive as mistakes can lead to unexpected and beneficial outcomes – your accidental creation of a CBN sleep aid is a perfect example. I’m so proud of you for taking the initiative to try making your own oils and exploring the different cannabinoids. Thank you so much for sharing your journey with me. Keep exploring, keep learning, and most importantly, keep taking care of yourself. You’re doing an incredible job, and I can’t wait to hear more about your progress and experiences. Sending you much love back, Mike. Stay strong and keep inspiring!

  5. I guess you don’t know but in Canada our Thanks Giving is held in October. As for what i do is make two graves, one with and one without. Been doing that for about 8 years ….. cheers

  6. You’re absolutely right, Mike; Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October, a full month ahead of the United States, where I live. I love your idea of making two gravies – one with and one without. It’s thoughtful and inclusive, ensuring everyone at your table can partake in the holiday feast. Cheers to many more years of double-gravy Thanksgivings!

  7. This is absolutely amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing this Amazing spread! I can’t wait to try these out. Super cool recipes. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family🦃Blessings

  9. I make a mean mac-n- cheese with gremolata bread crumb topping. A bit of decarbed flower in the gremolata with the other herbs is quite delicious!

  10. Wow, Susan, your mac-n-cheese with gremolata bread crumb topping sounds absolutely fantastic! The addition of decarbed flower is certainly a unique twist. It’s exciting to hear how you’re experimenting with flavors and incorporating herbs into your dishes.

    Cooking is such a wonderful way to express creativity, isn’t it? And when you find that perfect balance of flavors, it’s nothing short of magic. Your dish sounds like a true culinary masterpiece that any food lover would be thrilled to try!
