Sometimes when you hit up your favorite recreational cannabis dispensary in San Diego you just want something different. You scour the vape cart wall but nothing really catches your eye. Even the newest releases from brands like Platinum Vape or Raw Garden just aren’t doing it for you.
Then you move on to the flower section. You check out the best weed your local dispensary but honestly you don’t feel like smoking it. After a tour of the most potent edibles you can find you realize you don’t want a gummy or another chocolate bar. The 1000mg edibles are good, but again you don’t want something that sweet right now.
Feeling a little bummed out you back to the flower wall and buy a couple 1/8ths of your favorite weed like the Toad by Tyson Ranch, and head out feeling a little dissatisfied. You start thinking about other ways you can enjoy this amazing flower and you remember back in the day making your own edibles. The problem is you forgot all the recipes. Well don’t worry, your favorite edibles dispensary, Mankind, is here to help.
Bring On the Que
Summer time is the right time for some outdoor grilling with friends. That means good food and a healthy dose of some homemade BBQ sauce. Sounds pretty good right? Let’s do it one better.
We scoured the internet to find you this amazing recipe from Wikileaf lifestyle writer Jen Keehn. Behold, the cannabis infused BBQ sauce to make your grill a little hotter, and a whole lot cooler.
Cannabis Infused Sauce
This recipe can be used on anything from burgers to chicken and, for the vegetarians out there, even on your veggie burgers or vegetables! It’s easy to make, tastes great, and will give your food, and friends, a nice happy addition to the day.
- 1/3-ounce cannabis, coarsely ground
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ½ tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
- ½ tablespoon onion powder
- ½ tablespoon ground mustard
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Make The Magic!
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to just a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. Let simmer for 1 hour, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool. You can use immediately or store in the refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container.
That’s it, all there is to it. Whether you add a little sativa to your sauce for an extra pick me up, or indica to help give that food coma a nice mellow addition is up to you. Do you have a favorite flower? Toss it in! Try something with a citrus taste, like some Humboldt County Indoor Citrus Twist (a nice sativa), to go along with a more Hispanic style fiesta.
Or throw in a little Strawberry Bliss from Wonderbrett (solid hybrid) into the mix if you are having a fruit filled feast. Not sure which strains are the right ones for you? Talk to one of our Budtenders at Mankind for a little guidance and some great suggestions.
