Awesome Weed Strawberry Shortcake Recipe 

By  Cheri Sicard

 May 9, 2021

What could be better than everyone’s favorite summer dessert made with a little help from Mary Jane?

I love this weed strawberry shortcake recipe because it's not too sweet, but it perfectly offsets the ripe delicious strawberries.  Top it all off with real whipped cream and you’ll understand why this dish is such a classic.

For best results, start with butter and cannabis infused butter that is VERY cold.  Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you start making the recipe.

Don’t be afraid to play around with the basic recipe.  Think of it in the broader terms of Weed Fruit Shortcakes!  Likewise, these shortcakes are also terrific topped with other types of berries too.  And don’t forget peach shortcakes when stone fruits come into season.  You could even use apple pie filling for a cannabis infused apple shortcake.  Your imagination is the limit.

A note about the Dosing the Weed Strawberry Shortcake recipe!

This recipe will have about 20 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  To adjust the dosage for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or better yet, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
