Cannabis-Infused Tomato Cucumber Salad

Alternate Infusion Options

The beautiful thing about making your own edibles at home is that there are many different ways to infuse a recipe.

Choosing an infusion option should be based on your personal preferences and what you already have available on hand.

We will explore several options below.

Cannabis Oil

Cannabis olive oil is a light, delicious, and versatile cannabis infusion that is an important staple recipe for any cannabis cook to master.

The final product is a cannabis-infused olive oil that can make many delicious cannabis recipes like this tomato cucumber salad or my popular cannabis pesto.

Decarbed Cannabis Flower

Although there are associated health benefits with CBDA and THCA, most people want to feel CBD or THC’s full effects.

To reap the benefits of activated CBD or THC, you must go through the process of decarboxylation with either an oven or Instant Pot.

Then you can add the decarbed cannabis to the mix for this recipe, just as you do any herb like dried basil or oregano.

If you plan to add decarbed cannabis flower to this salad, add 1 gram* of ground decarbed cannabis flowers in step 2.

*Of course, this is just a suggestion and should be adjusted to your personal preferences and tolerance level.

Raw Cannabis Leaves

Cannabis leaves do not produce cannabinoids quite as mature flower buds do, so many people feel they are useless or discard them. 

However, fan leaves contain important nutrients, antioxidants, and cannabinoid acids like THCA and CBDA, meaning they are not useless. 

Of course, not everyone has access to fresh cannabis leaves all year round, but this is a great way to use them up if you do.

If you want to add raw cannabis leaves to this salad, use 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped raw cannabis, loosely​ packed, and add it in step 2.

Cannabis Concentrates

One of the easiest ways to make infused foods is with cannabis concentrates or extracts. 

Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the elevated experience you are looking for. 

And because you only need to add a tiny bit, cannabis concentrates will not disrupt your food’s volume, texture, or flavor.

If you plan to add cannabis concentrates to this salad, stir in your desired concentrate amount with the olive oil and then add as directed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this salad dairy-free?

This salad is bursting with both flavor and nutrition, making it a delicious addition to just about any diet. This salad is naturally gluten-free, but if you want it to be dairy-free, too, be sure to omit the feta cheese.
