FAQ

Q. Can I use Nutella in place of peanut butter?

A. Short answer: If you like to waste your money, go for it. It might taste slightly better.

Nutella Ingredients : sugar, modified palm oil, hazelnuts, cocoa, skim milk, reduced minerals whey (from milk), soy lecithin: an emulsifier, vanillin: an artificial flavor.

Nutella contains no pure oils (with the exception of vanillin, which is only used as flavoring. The other notable ingredient, skim milk, also should never be used in CannaCooking additionally there is an ingredient called "modified palm oil". This is a hydrogenated oil, and is thus not suitable for Cannacrackers.

This is a very cost efficient alternative to smoking. Its also probably one of the easiest routes to edible cannabis out there. I've been making batches of these for a week *edit: years!* now, and i've cut back on smoking by a significant amount. The high lasts a lot longer than smoking, and is a lot more of a physical, sedating high.

Ingredients:

0.4 - 0.6g cannabis
8 saltine crackers (any kind will work)
Organic Peanut butter (non-hydrogenated!!! "skippy" will not work.)

Spread peanut butter on the tops of all 8 crackers. I use organic, crunchy peanut butter. The crunchy kind seems to have more peanut oil, and just tastes better. Don't buy the stuff thats loaded with huge peanut chunks, its a bitch to spread that stuff on crackers. The ideal brand of p-butter you want is Adam's Natural Peanut Butter (the smooth kind), its loaded with plenty of cannabinoid absorbing peanut oil. If your options are limited, just go with a natural peanut butter (look for jars that have oil resting on top of the peanut butter).

DO NOT BUY PEANUT BUTTERS LIKE 'JIF' OR 'SKIPPY'

(I'm aware they have natural versions of their products, but they are also not really effective at all)

(I can't stress this enough, you will not get buzzed at all if you use those garbage brands, you'll also be consuming partially hydrogenated soybean oil (the main component in the faux-butter that movie theaters use on their popcorn). This "partially hydrogenated" shit will not absorb the goods properly, so make sure you pay attention at the grocery store :P


Cut your bud up into a fine dust with scissors. I would recomend using scissors (or a nice grinder), as the scissors can cut your bud into a fine consistency (you want the cut up material to be basically as small as the tobacco bits in cigs). This nug is weighs about .6g.

This is the consistency/size of the clippings you want, again, cut those nugs up really well. Small, un-cut chunks will just result in the absorption of the active cannabinoids on the outer layer of the chunk, leaving the core un-exposed to those thc-hungry peanut oils.

Next, sprinkle the cannabis "dust" very finely across the full peanutbuttered surface of four of the crackers (make sure you dont pile it up, just cover the surface of the peanut butter). It is very important that your cannabis is cut up into almost powdery consistency. This allows the THC and other active cannabinoids to absorb into the peanut oil easily.


Next, sandwich the weed/peanut butter side with the plain peanut butter side. Make sure the weed is nestled in between the peanut butter nicely

Now place your C-Crackers on a sheet and cook them in a preheated oven at 320 fahrenheit (160 Celsius) for 22 minutes. There shouldn't be a problem with the smell, just make sure the pot is nestled in the peanut butter, and that none if it is exposed.

 

ENJOY!
