As Thanksgiving approaches, many cannabis enthusiasts may be wondering how they can incorporate their favorite herb into their holiday celebrations. One way to enjoy cannabis at Thanksgiving is by preparing a weed infused turkey. In this blog post, we'll explore how to make a weed turkey and some other ways to incorporate cannabis into your Thanksgiving festivities.
Making a weed turkey may sound like a complicated scientific project, but it's actually a relatively simple process. The key is to infuse the turkey with cannabis butter or oil, which can be made by simmering cannabis in butter or oil over low heat. To make cannabutter, you'll need to decarboxylate your weed by baking it in the oven at a low temperature to activate its psychoactive compounds (THC).
Once you've made your cannabis butter or oil, you can inject it into the turkey using a marinade injector or rub it onto the turkey before roasting. Be sure to use caution when cooking with cannabis, as it can be difficult to determine the potency of your infusion. Start with a small amount and gradually increase as needed.
Another way to incorporate cannabis into your Thanksgiving festivities is by serving cannabis-infused side dishes or desserts. You can add cannabis butter or oil to mashed potatoes, stuffing, or gravy, or make a cannabis-infused pumpkin pie or apple crisp.
If you prefer to smoke or vape your cannabis, consider setting up a designated smoking area outside or on the porch for consumption. You can also provide pre-rolled joints or a variety of strains for your guests to try.
As a responsible host, it's crucial to prioritize the safety and well-being of your guests. While recreational or medical/ medicinal cannabis may be legal in your state, it's important to remember that driving under the influence of cannabis is against the law in all states and can result in severe penalties.
To ensure the safety of your guests, it's a good idea to offer alternative transportation options, such as Uber or Lyft, or encourage them to spend the night if they plan on consuming cannabis. Make sure your guests are aware of the potential risks of consuming cannabis and driving, and encourage them to make responsible decisions.
In conclusion, there are many ways to enjoy cannabis at Thanksgiving, from preparing a weed-infused turkey to serving cannabis-infused side dishes or desserts. As with any cannabis-infused product, it's important to use caution and start with a small amount to determine the potency.
