Marijuana Cupcakes: Recipe for Kushy Key Lime Cupcakes


Marijuana infused key lime cupcakes

It’s amazing how a little lime juice can transform an ordinary cake mix and frosting recipe into something extraordinary. These little cakes do not rise as much as traditional cupcakes, so fill the cupcake liners almost full before baking.

I use marijuana infused coconut oil to medicate this recipe.  My making Marijuana Oil tutorial will help you learn how to make it.

A note about the Dosing on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 25 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana oil from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup oil.  To adjust the dosage up or down to meet your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your oil, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Course that will teach you how to use the handy dosage calculator tool on this page.
