Follow these few effortless steps and get ready to fly to the very gates of the sandwich heaven with this savory Weed Grilled Cheese recipe.
Before Getting Started
If you genuinely believe that every grilled cheese sandwich should have a crispy-buttery taste, you are definitely going to need some cannabis-infused butter. Thankfully we got your back with this easy recipe to make yours and save for your next edible creation! Choose your favorite cannabis strain to control the amount of THC, CBD, or the cannabinoid of your preference.
If you’ve never cooked with cannabis before, we recommend experimenting with CBD flower first. It’s usually easier to access and cheaper to buy. To experience the intoxicating ‘high’ effect of cannabis, you must convert CBDA and THCA into CBD and THC, respectively, through decarboxylation.
- Weed grinder or scissors
- Baking sheet
- Silicone spatula
- Saucepan, slow-cooker, or crockpot
- 1 cup cannabis flowers
- 1 cup unsalted butter
Preheat your oven to 250 F.
Break the buds up using a weed grinder, preferably. To achieve a powerful cannabutter, we highly recommend using KLIP. It slices your herbs finely in a snap while preserving its precious trichomes.
Spread the ground flower on a baking sheet and take it to the oven for 40 minutes. Occasionally check on your ground cannabis flower and stir to allow every piece to cook evenly.
When the flower has turned brown, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool. Once it crumbles easily between your fingers, it is ready to use.
Using a slow-cooker or crockpot, infuse your preferred unsalted butter with the decarboxylated weed for about 4 hours.
If you don’t have a crockpot, you can use a saucepan as well. Pour 2 cups of water while you’re infusing the butter, and bring to a boil. Allow cooking on the stovetop for 4 hours with your decarboxylated herbs, stirring every 15 or 20 minutes. Make sure the butter doesn’t burn.
Once the cooking process is over, allow the entire pan to cool.
The finished butter will harden and solidify, floating on top, while the unwanted water will remain on the bottom. Pour off the water to discard it. Now that you have cooked your cannabutter, it’s time to make a tasty weed grilled cheese.

- Non-stick pan or skillet
Two slices bread
Two slices American, Muenster Cheese, or Cannabis Cheddar Cheese
- Evenly spread the 2 tsp of butter on both sides of each bread slice.
- Next, place the cheddar cheese between the two slices of bread. Use Cannabis Cheddar Cheese for an extra powerful result.
- On medium heat, fry the grilled cheese sandwich on a pan for about 2-3 minutes per side.
- When the cheese has melted, and both sides of the bread are golden brown, you’re ready to enjoy it!
- If you choose to use canna-oil pour one tablespoon into a hot skillet and place the two pieces of bread into the oil to fry.
- When the bread looks crisp and slightly brown, add your slices of cheese to the pieces of bread.
- If you want to add an extra topping, like sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, bacon, or pickles, you should do it when the cheese starts melting.
- Pour a little canna-oil on top of the additional ingredients or onto the pieces of bread before closing off the sandwich.
If you want to level up your toppings as well, how about adding some juicy herb-infused caramelized onions? They would give your cheesy sandwich a whole new twist.
Herb-infused Caramelized Onions
- Large skillet or non-stick pan
- Silicone spatula
- Two yellow onions, finely diced
- One tablespoon canna-butter
- One tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tsp minced fresh thyme
- 1 tsp minced fresh rosemary, divided
- 1 tsp minced fresh cannabis fan leaves
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Pour the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat and melt the canna-butter. Be careful not to let it smoke.
- Add diced onions, minced thyme, rosemary, and minced cannabis leaves to the warm skillet.
- Cook low and slow while often stirring for about 15 minutes.
- Once onions look soft and slightly brown, add brown sugar, salt, and pepper to taste. Allow cooking for another minute and remove from heat.
- Transfer all onion bits to a plate and sprinkle a couple of tablespoons to the sandwich once the cheese starts to melt.
Pickle Perfect Weed Grilled Cheese
- 1 tbsp mayonnaise or cannabutter
- Two large slices of bread
- Four slices Cannabis Cheddar Cheese
- Three slices bacon, cooked
- Three slices dill pickle
- First, spread mayonnaise or cannabutter on one side of each slice of bread. This side will be the outside of your sandwich that touches the skillet.
- Next, assemble the sandwich by adding between the two slices of bread, the four cheese slices, bacon slices, and pickles. It should follow this scheme: bread, two pieces of cannabis cheese, bacon, pickles, two more cannabis cheese slices, and a final slice of bread.
- Then, in a medium skillet over medium heat, cook until the bread looks golden brown on both sides and cheese is melty.
- Serve and enjoy.
