Thanksgiving Edibles: Setting the Table for a 420 Meal

by jessica

Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful, spending time with those we love, and of course, enjoying some good food. As you head off to your big family meal, why not bring along  a few THC laden thanksgiving edibles?

A thanksgiving meal infused with a dash of THC can spice up the entire event. Whether it's to loosen up your nerves before the big day with your relatives or improving the leftovers, we've got five Thanksgiving edibles for you to try. If you try one, or try them all, make this Thanksgiving a memorable one. 

And, as is always the case with edibles, start low and go slow.

Thanksgiving Edibles to Try This Holiday Season

Thanksgiving can be stressful, especially when you've got a dozen or more people to cook for.  Hence why it's always a good idea to add a dose or two of THC to help encourage rest and relaxation. The best thanksgiving gift, in our humble opinion, is always green.

Kick it Off With a THC-infused Bloody Mary

So why not start the morning with a THC-infused Bloody Mary? This simple recipe from SousWeed will get your day started out right. 

To Make a THC-Infused Bloody Mary, You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 lb tomatillos
  • 1 lb tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 jalapeños
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 pinch celery seeds
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 cups cold water
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • THC tincture (like Care By Design 1:1 CBD:THC tincture)


  1. Roughly chop and roast all the veggies (except the cucumber) at 425° F for 30 minutes
  2. Throw the veggies and everything else into a high power blender 
  3. Add some ice, and garnish
  4. Serve and enjoy

Make Everything Taste Better with Some Cannabutter

If you make one thing on this list, it should be cannabutter. This recipe from Highsnobiety is easy to make. And the best part? It can last up to two months in the fridge or even six months in the freezer. 

You can replace any recipe that calls for butter with cannabutter. Some of the other recipes on this list call for cannabutter, so we advise preparing this one in advance. 

First, you'll need to decarb your cannabis flower, like the cultivators at 454. by heating it in the oven for 30 minutes. This turns the flower into THC. Then, while it's in the oven, heat your butter in a boiler. 

Once your flower is ready, put it into the melted butter and keep it on medium heat for 45 minutes. Then filter out the weed and put your butter in the fridge until it's soft. 

Make Some Cannabis-infused Turkey Gravy to go With Your Turkey

You can't have a Thanksgiving turkey without some gravy. In this recipe from Cannadish, you'll need some cannabutter, which you can prepare ahead of time using the recipe above. 

To make the Cannabis Infused Gravy You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup fat skimmed from drippings 
  • 1 Tbsp Cannabis butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups liquid (juices from roasted turkey, broth, water)

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Put the turkey drippings and cannabis butter into a saucepan until it melts
  2. Sprinkle in the flour while stirring constantly. 
  3. Add the liquid and whisk together until well blended. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add a Side of Stoner Stuffing

  • 1 day-old loaf of bread, torn or cut into bite-sized pieces

  3. Put the mix into a small pot, then add the bread, cranberries, and sage. 
  4. Add in stock and stir. 
  5. Put it all in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
