- 2 tablespoons of cannabis oil
- We recommend peanut oil

- Jelly (whatever kind you want)

Directions: Cannabis-Infused Peanut Butter
Making homemade peanut butter is so ridiculously easy. Seriously, once you make it, you’ll wonder why you have ever wasted shelf space with the store-bought stuff.
All you need is a food processor, canning jar (like a Mason jar), peanuts, and salt. That’s it. For creamier peanut butter, you would typically add in some peanut oil.
For cannabis-infused peanut butter, this part is necessary. Pre-make some weed-infused peanut oil using our recipe here to get started.
1. Pulse The Peanuts
Put 2 cups of roasted peanuts in your food processor. Pulse until the peanuts are ground.
Flip the switch on the food processor and blend the peanuts for a minute. Then, use a spatula to scrape the fly away pieces from the sides of the food processor, and bring them down to the bottom again.
At this point, the peanut butter will still look dry and gritty.
3. Continue to Process
Repeat Step 2 for another minute. Again, scrape the sides to bring the nuts down to the bottom of the food processor, where the blades are.
The peanuts will still be gritty, but they should be getting clumpy. Chill, it will start to resemble peanut butter soon.
Again, process the peanuts for a minute. At this point, your peanuts will have magically turned into peanut butter.
5. Add the Oil
Pour in the 2 tablespoons of weed-infused peanut oil into the food processor. Add the salt at this point too.
Process until everything is completely smooth and incorporated. Homemade peanut butter is typically grittier than commercial, store-bought peanut butter.
But it’s still delicious and good for your health. Especially this kind, since it has the added health benefits of cannabis. When your peanut butter is as smooth as you want it to be, transfer it to a jar.
Directions: Cannabis-Infused Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
It’s time to bring it all together! If you have somehow never made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, don’t worry! Let’s go through the steps together.
Take out two slices of bread and lay them side by side. Then, lay out the jars of cannabis-infused peanut butter and jelly. Oh, and take out a knife, too.
2. Spread the Medicated Peanut Butter
Using your knife, take out a glob of peanut-butter and spread it on one slice of bread. Since the peanut butter is infused with weed, use your judgment and knowledge about your own weed tolerance to determine how much peanut butter you want on your sandwich.
3. Spread the Jelly
Wipe the excess peanut butter from your knife using the other slice of bread. Then, take some jelly and spread it directly on the peanut butter.
You’ll notice that we specifically instruct to spread the peanut butter first. This is the correct way to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
While it’s technically possible to spread the jelly first, your friends and partner might question your upbringing if they witness you doing this.
On a similar note, if you spread the jelly directly on the other slice of bread, the bread will get soggy.
4. Bring it Together
Take the other slice of bread and place it directly on top of the slice with the peanut butter and jelly. If you’re using one slice of bread, skip this step.
5. Slice It
Using your knife, cut your sandwich. Do this diagonally rather than across. This optimizes the crust-to-bread ratio of your sandwich.
If you made your sandwich with one slice of bread, cut your sandwich and put the two halves together.
6. Eat it!
This last step is obvious. For even more fun, combine your sandwich with these cannabis-infused Rice Krispie treats!
