Cannabis Cheri: Preparing Cannabis for Cooking; Marijuana Bundt Cake


Hi Everyone,
Cheri Sicard on how to prepare marijuana for cooking
I wanted to take a minute to let you know about my (fairly) new YouTube channel.  I had held off on YouTube because they were notorious for deleting cannabis accounts, but have decided to slowly dip my toe into it.  There are a number of videos there now and we upload a new one every Wednesday.  Check it out!

To Grind or Not to Grind: Preparing Marijuana for Cooking

Cheri Sicard

Dear Cheri,

Why do you always tell people not to finely grind their plant material for cooking when most of the other websites and books I read say that you should finely grind the cannabis before making marijuana butter or oil?

Confused in California

When it comes to how to prepare marijuana for cooking, I see this bit of bad advice repeated over and over again, oftentimes by people who should know better. 

I have asked all kinds of cannabis experts through the years why they finely grind the plant material, and I have yet to get a satisfactory answer.  I think people finely grind their cannabis before cooking because that is just the way it’s always been done. 

Don’t fall for that.  Fine grinding serves no practical purpose and is detrimental to the finished edibles!

Marijuana Recipes: Pistachio Irie Irish Cream Bundt Cake

Marijuana Bundt Cake Pistachio Irie irish Cream Bundt Cake Recipe

These little Marijuana Bundt cakes could not be easier to make, as they doctor up a plain cake mix and turn it into something extraordinary.

I was trying to come up with a recipe for St Patrick’s Day when I came up with this marijuana Bundt cake, so Irish cream liqueur was on my mind. Then I happened upon a box of Pistachio pudding mix hiding in the back of my pantry and thought why not? The flavors will match well and it will make the cakes look green.

Well the flavors did match well. These little treats are delicious. But…the color was barely green. So if you want green cakes for a marijuana St. Patrick’s Day celebration (or any other time), add a few drops of food coloring to your batter.

I used infused coconut oil to make these cakes. I especially love coconut oil in cakes because it creates an ultra-moist cake. If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, you could use any other neutral flavor infused oil, such as canola oil or vegetable oil, instead.  Make Making Marijuana Oil tutorial can show you how to make cannabis infused oils.
