This is how you make Cannabis infused Bacon Fat.

This delicious THC infused bacon grease can be used for all kind of weed edible recipes such as rice dishes, sauces, or sprinkle some of the oil on your pizza. There is almost no end when it comes to bacon right?

Cannabis is usually infused with butter or oil. That is why you see and hear a lot of people using cannabis butter and oil in edible recipes. But it works exactly the same with bacon fat. But weed infused bacon fat is far more delicious and camouflages the taste of marijuana buds much better.

You render bacon fat by first cooking bacon. The trick is to cook the bacon slowly, on medium low heat. This way you make sure you don’t burn any of the bacon. At the same time you can decarboxylate your cannabis buds to activate the THC in your buds. The rest of the recipe is exactly the same as making a batch of Cannabutter.

This recipe will show you how to render bacon fat and infuse it with THC cannabis.

Make sure that the mason jars you use are strong. Also, always make sure to start them off in cold water to avoid the jars shattering during the heating process.
