Danksgiving, a time of thanks, appreciation, football and cannabis-infused foods. First, let us give thanks to the progress cannabis reform has made in the US within the past few years. Let us thank those individuals who continue to spread accurate and educational cannabis information on a daily basis. Of course we cannot forget to thank you, the responsible consumer, for respecting cannabis and being a part of our PotGuide community. We hope your holiday is filled with the fresh scent of terpenes, the bright glow of joints roasting, sparkling kief falling from the sky and cannabis-infused gravy!

For this very special occasion, we put together a list of cannabis-infused recipes to try this Danksgiving.


Turkey and mashed potatoes covered in gravy are two Thanksgiving staples. But turkey and mashed potatoes covered in cannabis-infused gravy are Danksgiving staples! Load up your plate and drench it all in gravy. Now is the time to indulge, after all!

What You’ll Need

  • 4 Cups Turkey Stock

  • ½ C Flour

  • 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons Dried Rosemary

  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt

  • 1 Tablespoon Black Pepper

  • ¼ C Cannabis-Infused Butter/Coconut Oil

Nothing beats adding some gravy to your Danksgiving feast. Glory Foods


  1. In a medium saucepan whisk turkey stock, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper over medium-high heat
  2. Slowly incorporate flour into the mixture

  4. Whisk in dried rosemary
  5. Whisk in infused butter and continue simmering sauce to desired thickness

PRO TIP: Substitute turkey stock for vegetable stock and infused butter for canna-coconut oil to make your gravy vegan.

Cranberry Orange Apple Canna-Relish

Skip the canned cranberry sauce your Aunt Mildred always brings to the family get together and make a delicious, infused relish this year. This dish is tart, sweet and the perfect side dish for a Danksgiving feast.

PRO TIP: This stuff magically becomes more delicious overnight so please do not forget to make this ahead of time.

What You’ll Need

  • 3 Cups Raw Cranberries

  • 2 Granny Smith Apples

  • 1 Navel Orange

  • 1 Teaspoon Orange Zest

  • ¼ Cup Raw Sugar

  • ¼ Cup Cannabis-Infused Honey

  8. Once all the fruit is chopped finely, add sugar, orange zest and infused honey into mixture and stir well with a large wooden spoon
  9. Combine all ingredients evenly and store in the fridge covered overnight, allowing the juices and flavors to combine
  10. Stir prior to serving

“Extra Green” Bean Casserole

There really isn’t anything sexy or exciting about green bean casserole but there are things you have to do on Danksgiving without exception or else the day feels off. For instance, it's always best to watch the Macy’s Day Parade with cannabis-infused banana pancakes and dabs of live resin. Same goes for cannabis-infused casserole -- you just have to try it!

What You’ll Need

  • 2 10 oz Cans Cut Green Beans or 3 Cups Fresh-Cut Steamed Green Beans

  • 2 10 oz Cans Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

  • 2 Cups Corn Flakes

  • ½ Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter (Non-Infused)

  • ¼ Cup Cannabis-Infused Butter

Green Bean Casserole
Didn’t think green bean casserole could get any greener? Guess again! lotherington


  1. Melt cannabis-infused butter in saucepan over low heat
  2. Mix in cans of soup with melted butter, do not simmer
  3. Add green beans to soup and butter mixture, set aside
  4. Melt non-infused butter in microwave
  5. In a large mixing bowl, toss melted, non-infused butter with corn flakes so all flakes are lightly covered in butter.
  6. Grease your casserole dish
  7. Preheat oven to 275 degrees
  8. Evenly spread soup, butter and green bean mixture in bottom of casserole dish
  9. Sprinkle corn flakes evenly over entire casserole
  10. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over entire casserole
  11. Bake in oven until soup begins to lightly bubble or corn flakes are crispy golden brown
  12. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving

Pumpkin “High” Bites

Whether you always double-down or pass on pumpkin pie, it's one of this season's great desserts that will never go out of style. Adding cannabis, however, will make this treat one for the books!

PRO TIP: Please don’t ruin anyone’s holiday by forgetting the Cool Whip -- or the joints.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 Package Pillsbury Pie Crust (2 ct, Ready to Use Refrigerated Pie Crusts)

  • 8 Oz Cream Cheese

  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  • ¼ Cup Sugar

  • ¼ Cup Cannabis-Infused Honey

  • Cool Whip

Mini Pumpkin Pies
Be careful, these mini pies are tough to stop eating! Kimberly Vardeman


  1. Using a 3 in. round cookie cutter, cut out individual rounds from pie crusts
  2. Grease mini muffin baking pan (We used a 24 cup mini muffin baking pan)
  3. Take one round pie crust cut and place over individual cup of the mini muffin pan. Using your fingers, form the pie crust in bottom of the cup so that the edges of the crust are flush with the top of the pan. You are trying to form mini pie crusts or “cups” to fill with pie filling
  4. In mixer, beat cream cheese, pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs and cannabis-infused honey until thoroughly combined
  5. With a spoon, fill each mini crust to the top so the filling and crust edges are flush
  6. Bake at 300 degrees for about 10-12 minutes so the pie filling is fully cooked and the pie crust is golden brown and flaky
  7. Remove mini pie bites from mini muffin pan and place on cooling rack
  8. Serve with a nice dollop of Cool Whip

There you have it! Four Thanksgiving staples easily transformed into Danksgiving classics. If you really want to start the meal properly, roll a king size joint and place it in the middle of the table. Just before eating, the host of Danksgiving will take the joint and say something they are thankful for, then light the joint, take a rip and pass it to the next guest who will do the same thing. Once everyone has had their turn, dig in and enjoy your meal.

Danksgiving is a fun holiday meant to be fully enjoyed, so fill yours with cannabis, laughter and lots of DANK food.

Do you celebrate Danksgiving? If so, what are your traditions?
