Marijuana Jambalaya Recipe

This marijuana jambalaya has something for everyone – chicken, sausage, seafood, cannabis, and tons of flavor with a little spicy kick. It goes together surprisingly fast and uses just a single pot.  

If you plan to celebrate a Marijuana Mardi Gras, this is your main course right here!

How to Infuse Marijuana Jambalaya

You can use either Marijuana Oil or Marijuana Butter to medicate this recipe.  Both work well so you can use whatever you have on hand.  

When using cannaoil, infused olive oil is my favorite as it goes best with the jambalaya flavor profile.

Freezer Friendly Marijuana Jambalaya

For longer storage, freeze individual portions in plastic freezer containers.  When you want to enjoy a medicated entrée, reheat gently in the microwave or stovetop.

A note about the Dosage for the Marijuana Jambalaya recipe!

This recipe will have about 30 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana oil or cannabutter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of cannabis to make 1 cup oil or butter.  

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 or butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
