The 5 Best, Easy Thanksgiving Day Side Dishes You Can Cook With Weed

thanksgiving marijuana recipes, danksgiving

Even if you don’t smoke weed, it’s easy to see why Thanksgiving is a great holiday for people who like marijuana.

Yes, sitting at a big table with your entire extended family can make even the chillest dudes a little paranoid, but the key is just to keep telling yourself that everyone has no idea because already drunk on red wine and you’ll be in the clear. Now nothing (besides a belt) can keep you from enjoying extremely generous portions of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing.

If you’re hosting your own party this year with friends (and even family) and you want to experiment a little by incorporating marijuana into your recipes, then you’re in the right place. We’ve compiled a short list of five easy-to-make sides that all have weed in them.

Truth be told, making a roasted turkey properly is hard enough so we figured it would be best if we just stick to side dishes.

Important: If you haven’t made your cannabutter yet, stop what you’re doing and read this awesome guide on how to make it. You’re going to need about an ounce or an ounce and half. Don’t worry–it doesn’t need to be the greatest strain. You’re really going to need the volume though.
