Is your cannabis butter ready to go?

Great! You’re ready to start preparing your cannabis butter turkey! Excitingly, you are about to melt your cannabutter into your stuffing mix. Not only will this turkey pack a powerful punch, it will taste incredible.

You are going to slow roast this weed turkey and allow the cannabis butter to soak into its meat. The turkey is going to absorb the weed infused butter keeping it moist and juicy. This blend of spices, cannabutter, and vegetables is sure to astound your guests with flavor.

Will this cannabis butter turkey get my guests high?

Interestingly, you can choose between what type of strain you would like to infuse your turkey with. Perhaps your guests will be driving home and they cannot consume anything that will elicit psychoactive effects. For these times, choose a CBD strain to infuse your weed infused Thanksgiving turkey.

If you are looking to enjoy a nice buzz, choose a cannabis strain that is high in THC. Remember, cannabis edibles take awhile to kick in. Go easy and enjoy responsibly!

Always inform your guests that their meal contains cannabis BEFORE they start eating.
