16 Cannabis Edible Recipes to Stay Healthy & High

Instead of buying sugary, fat-laden edibles from the dispensary, stock your pantry with high-quality, potent infusions of cannabis in coconut oil and olive oil. Use those basic infusions to medicate a healthy diet full of whole grains, nuts and seeds, leafy greens, lean proteins, fresh fruit and vegetables to discover the healing power of real food. Avoid processed, packaged convenience items and "fake foods" in favor of simple, easy-to-prepare whole foods, eat less meat and dairy, and after a month, you'll feel better than ever!

Superfoods provide a nutritional boost that creates energy, focus and vitality. Cannabis and hemp are superfoods in their own right, with cannabis delivering phytocannabinoids like THC and CBD, while hemp provides a perfectly balanced ratio of amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6, essential for brain function. Supplementing your endogenous cannabinoid system can help restore homeostasis in your body, balancing health and restoring vitality, but not if you're bombarding your body with free radicals and empty calories from a junk food diet.

The 16 healthy recipes chosen here are easy to prepare, nourishing and packed with a dazzling variety of superfoods. Energy balls and raw desserts don't even require cooking, just mixing and freezing for super simple healthy treats. Vegan dishes rely on fresh, bold flavors and lean protein from beans, nuts and grains to deliver energy without added calories. Gluten-free options use alternative flours made from rice, coconut or chickpeas in order to avoid wheat, which causes allergic reactions for many people.
