Marijuana Recipes: POT Stickers


Marijuana Recipes - POT StickersThis is one of those unusual marijuana recipes that actually works well using crumbled marijuana bud (also known as flowers).   That’s right, no need to infuse marijuana butter or oil or use hash or kief to make this marijuana recipe, but be sure to decarboxylate first.

This marijuana recipe puts the pot in potstickers. Using store bought wonton wrappers, the little medicated dumplings are quick and easy to make. This is one of the most versatile of marijuana recipes as you can serve the dumplings pan-fried with soy sauce for dipping, or drop them into simmering chicken stock for a Wonton Soup that packs a medicated punch.

Author: Cheri Sicard


  • 3/4 cup finely chopped Napa cabbage
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2.25 grams* decarboxylated ground marijuana flowers**
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce more for dipping
  • 36 small square wonton wrappers


  • Finely chop the Napa cabbage, green onions, ginger and garlic. If you have one, a food processor makes quick work of this. Place the chopped veggies in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix until everything is evenly combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. On a clean work surface, lightly brush the outer 4 edges of a wonton wrapper with water. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of the wrapper and fold in half to make a triangle. Carefully press out the air surrounding the filling and pinch the edges closed to seal. Fold the bottom two corners inward and use a drop of water to seal them in place (see photos). Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • At this point, you have three choices, freeze to use later (you can also cook some now and freeze leftovers for later), pan fry, or use in soup:
  • To Freeze: Freeze dumplings, uncooked, in a single layer on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Once frozen, remove to a lidded freezer container or plastic storage bag. Cook frozen potstickers as outlined below.
  • To Pan Fry: Heat a small amount of vegetable or canola oil over medium-high heat in a skillet large enough to hold the amount you want to cook in a single layer with little room to spare. Add potstickers to skillet, taking care to avoid sputtering oil, and cook without moving for about 3 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Add 1/2-cup water to the hot skillet and immediately cover. Reduce heat to medium-low and let dumplings steam for about 4 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from pan and serve with soy sauce for dipping.
  • To Use in Soup: Bring chicken stock to a simmer. Add desired number of dumplings to simmering stock and cook for about 5 minutes. Keep stock at a low simmer as opposed to a rolling boil in order to avoid the wontons coming apart. Optional wonton soup add-ins include cooked chicken, shrimp, boy choy and/or shitake mushrooms. A half-teaspoon or so of sesame oil stirred into the soup adds a nice flavor as well.


Decarboxylation and Dosing

**Decarboxylation is the chemical process that changes the THC-A or acid in the raw cannabis plant into THC. (That’s right, there is no THC in raw cannabis). Place your plant material in an ovenproof dish and bake at 275 degrees F for abut 20 minutes before using in  marijuana recipes. Yes the heat of cooking many recipes will decarboxylate your cannabis, but depending on cooking time and temps, it may or may not be enough. This extra step insures you will get maximum potency from your weed.
**This dose is only a suggestion.  Be sure to read and understand Calculating Cannabis Doses in Edibles before attempting to cook with marijuana.  For more PRECISE dosing, be sure to take my FREE online dosing class.
