Cannabis Cheri: Cooking with Trimmings; Infused Churros Flavor Cinnamon Popcorn 

By  Cheri Sicard

Hi Everyone,

Since harvest season is in full swing (or about to be depending on where you live), I thought it a good time to answer a recent question I got about cooking with trimmings.  This issue also has a recipe for my new favorite infused snack recipe, Churros Flavor Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn.  Watch your portions on this one, or dose lightly so you can eat more!

Cooking with Cannabis Trimmings

title card for how to increase potency when cooking with marijuana trimmings

Dear Cheri,

I’ve grown 18 very nice plants that have rooted and become exceptional cannabis plants. In the process prior to harvesting the buds, we accumulated a whole lot of trimmings. It’s second quality not like the dried and cured buds now. We have experience making cookies in the past with store bought top shelf cannabis and of course this was great.  But when we tried to make cookies with the cannabis trimmings, the THC value was quite mild even when eating a full big cookie. Do you have any thoughts on how to increase the potency when cooking with cannabis trimmings?

Churros Flavored Cinnamon Sugar Pot Popcorn

Cannabis Infused Cinnamon Sugar Pot Popcorn

Popcorn makes a great blank culinary canvas with which to create marvelous medicated munchies.  Pop up some plain popcorn on the stovetop or in the popcorn popper, and toss with some canna-butter and cinnamon and sugar for an irresistible medicated snack.  You can even use this recipe on plain store-bought popcorn.  I would, however, avoid microwave popcorn, as it usually has too much going on in the flavor department, plus it is loaded with unhealthy ingredients.

I use marijuana-infused butter to medicate this recipe.  My How to Make Cannabis Butter tutorial will teach you how to make it.
