Recipe: Cannaflour & Zucchini Bread

If you want a more potent zucchini bread, just use more canna-flour.

It’s time to really embrace zucchini bread.


For those who have yet to indulge, it’s definitely a case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

If you’ve ever wandered past a mound of zucchini in the grocery store or have a garden and grow the veggie, you may be starting to wonder exactly what to do with it. Let’s face it – there’s only so much sautéed zucchini one person can eat. It’s good, but it gets old after a while.

That’s where zucchini bread made with canna-flour comes in.

Canna-flour is decarboxylated cannabis pulverized to the texture of flour. The cannabis takes the place of ½ cup of the flour in this recipe. We ramped up the vanilla, ginger and cloves to assist in disguising the taste of weed and before the cannabis kicks in you would never know you were indulging in the pleasantly psychoactive plant.

Before baking the sweet bread, decarboxylate the marijuana to release all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. If you want a more potent zucchini bread, just use more canna-flour.
