Marijuana Recipes: Classic Cannabis Infused Pesto Sauce 

By  Cheri Sicard

 March 13, 2017

Pesto is a wonderful medicated utility recipe to have around because it has so many uses. Serve versatile pesto sauce with pasta or over steamed or grilled vegetables, chicken, fish, or tofu for an instant meal. You can even use a light coating of pesto instead of sauce on pizza.

With strong flavor components like fresh basil, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese, you’ll never notice the taste of the cannabis-infused oil in this recipe.  Buy basil on sale, make a big batch of medicated pesto keep in your freezer for longer storage.  That way you can spoon out just the amount you need at any given time.

I use Marijuana Oil, specifically marijuana olive oil, to medicate this recipe.  My Making Marijuana Oil tutorial will help you learn how to make it.

Freezer Friendly Marijuana Pesto Sauce

For longer storage, freeze cannabis pesto sauce.  When you want to enjoy a medicated entrée, remove the portion you need, bring to room temperature, and proceed with your recipe.
