Recipe: 3 Cannabis-Infused Salad Dressings

Brighten up a spring salad with one of these three dressings, each made with canna-oil.

A salad is only as good as its ingredients. If you are lucky enough to have a garden or live near a farmer’s market, grab some greens and the best produce you can afford and expand your salad repertoire.

It’s important to remember that salads can contain lots more than just greens and veggies. Just about everything you can eat on a sandwich, you can devour on a bed of greens. I’ve been doing that for months and feel pretty great. Although I have a penchant for adding a little bacon to most of my salads, I have a newfound love for the freshness and crunch that a well put-together salad can provide.

Now you can elevate your salads even further by adding cannabis. Infusing salad dressings is simple, and if you happen to eat the salad as the appetizer, you should begin to feel a buzz by the end of the meal. As always, remember that with cannabis, less is more.

Dosing: Make sure you know the THC content of your canna-oil in order to calculate the strength of your serving of dressing, assuming your salad will be dressed with two tablespoons of dressing. The average dose recommendation ranges from 5 mg THC to 10 mg THC. First-time cannabis users might want to avoid edibles.
