Sativa or Indica Bacon Burger, Anyone?

It's crucial to know how to utilize cannabis in a variety of ways as it becomes increasingly prevalent in modern society. Because of this, I've chosen to write about an infusion procedure today that is a little more difficult than cooking brownies or other similar foods. Hemp-based meats are now available on the market alongside other plant-based protein burgers and nuggets.

Since most people enjoy hamburgers, I wanted to provide a recipe with you that will not only taste amazing but also get you stoned as we discuss the fundamentals of consuming cannabis-infused meals today.

So let's get right to it.

The ultimate edible is weed bacon.

The ultimate edible is weed bacon.

This marijuana bacon recipe will literally convert you into a pot-bellied pig if you love bacon—and who are we fooling. Of course you do!

Quite possibly the finest edible ever is made with this cannabis bacon recipe. The flavor of the bacon itself is unrivaled, but that isn't the only reason. Given its simplicity and speed of preparation, marijuana bacon is the best edible ever.

A time-consuming procedure of infusing cannabis into fats like butter and oils is needed to create many of the more traditional edibles, such as baked products.

Contrarily, weed bacon benefits from the bacon's own natural lipids. And as a result, you can quickly prepare some sizzling slices of marijuana bacon before heading out for your morning commute.

The method for making genius cannabis bacon is both straightforward and clever. These components are all you require:

Freshly ground marijuana*, two cookie sheets, and uncooked bacon strips.

You should experiment to get the ideal ingredient ratio. The ratio of one gram of finely powdered cannabis buds or shake to ten slices of bacon is an excellent place to start.

* This recipe is a great chance to use some of the leftover shake that's been collecting at the bottom of your weed jars.

Step 1: Decarb the Marijuana

The process of "activating" your marijuana so that it interacts chemically with your body is known technically as "decarboxylation."

Your body can't take advantage of the excellent medicinal cannabinoids marijuana has to offer if you don't decarb it first. So be sure to complete it!

Decarbing, thankfully, is simple. Keep your composure, guy. As soon as THC reaches a temperature of roughly 220 degrees Fahrenheit, it transforms into its psychotropic form.

  1. Set your oven's temperature to 225 degrees. Spread your powdered nugs or shake on a cookie sheet while it's heated up.
  2. Set the timer for roughly 30-45 minutes and place the sheet in the oven when it is ready. There is definitely a reason for waiting longer. But for this incredible cannabis bacon consumable, 30 minutes ought to be sufficient.
  3. Spread out the bacon strips on the second cookie sheet while your marijuana is decarboxylating. Ensure that it is ungreased.

Step 2: Bake the Bacon

  1. Take out the cannabis that has been ground up from the oven after around 30 minutes. Pour the powder into a salt shaker to make distributing it easier. or simply employ your hands.
  2. Sprinkle a generous amount of the ground marijuana over both sides of the bacon strips.
  3. Place the bacon in the oven and raise the temperature to 275. Flip your sizzling weed bacon edibles after 10 minutes, and then bake for 10 more minutes. Take it out and let it cool.

How to Make the Most of Your Bacon and Weed

It really is that simple. You're merely allowing the active cannabinoids in the ground-up weed to be absorbed by the bacon's natural lipids.

This is typically a labor-intensive and involved process for other delicacies. For instance, before you can bake delectable cannabis brownies, you first need to prepare cannabutter.

But in this case, the bacon does all the work. The grease contains soluble amounts of THC and other cannabinoids. The cannabis is actually soaking up into your bacon.

In fact, one of the finest fats for absorbing THC is bacon fat. When it comes to the solubility of cannabinoids, bacon fat is superior to oils, milk, and other fats. That's because, in contrast to those other fats, it is a saturated fat.

Therefore, be sure to save every bit of the bacon grease from this dish! Place it in the refrigerator in a jar. Bacon fat made from therapeutically activated cannabis is present in every last drop.

Gather that fat that has been infused with cannabis and use it in various dishes. To add a nice smokey flavor to roasted potatoes, try spreading it on there. Sauté some greens in it. A savory-sweet dessert like maple bacon ice cream is another option.

Step 3: Prepare the Burger

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 9 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 2 pounds 80% ground chuck beef
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cannabutter, divided
  • 6 brioche or another favorite type of bun
  • 6 American cheese slices
  • Sliced tomato, pickles, and lettuce
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (optional)


  1. Cook the bacon until halfway done in a sizable skillet over medium-high heat, rotating once or twice.
  2. Slice the bacon strips in half after moving them to a chopping board.
  3. Add the ground beef to a sizable mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Combine thoroughly.
  4. Grab a good amount of meat and roll it into a ball with your hands. To prevent the meat from doming while cooked, form the meat into patties that are about 3/4 inch thick and push your thumb into the center of each burger to create a dimple. Place in the fridge for about 20 minutes, or prepare in advance and chill for the next day.
  5. The grill should be set up and heated to high.
  6. Over medium heat, reheat the saved bacon renderings.
  7. Include the onions and cook for 5 minutes over low-medium heat.
  8. Season with salt and pepper and add 1 tablespoon of cannabutter.
  9. The onions should be tender and caramelized after an additional 10 minutes of cooking.
  10. To maintain warmth, turn the heat down to a simmer, or turn the heat off and cover the pan with a lid.
  11. On the buns' cut side, apply the remaining cannabutter and set it aside.
  12. The burgers should be placed on the grates of a hot grill (450°F) and cooked for 4 minutes before being turned over and cooking for an additional 5 minutes, or until the internal temperature of a medium-done hamburger reaches 135°F.
  13. Each burger should have an American cheese slice added, and it should only be cooked until the cheese has melted.
  14. While you lightly brown the buns on the grill grate, transfer to a tray and let the meat rest for about 5 minutes.
  15. On the bottom and top of the buns with the cheeseburgers, spread the mayonnaise and, if you'd like, a little BBQ sauce. Then, top with the bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and caramelized onion.

Now That's a Burger!
