This recipe is my go-to for Infused Rice Crispy Treats, a sweet treat that can really do the trick. I have included sections for decarbing the cannabis and making cannabutter, both are necessary for the recipe. Once you have your cannabutter, you can just use the instructions from the box, the only difference is using infused ghee instead of butter. Ghee has a higher fat content, which is a better carrier of the THC, so you can make it as strong as you like. Use the CannaPete’s Marijuana Edibles Calculator to get an idea of how much THC is in your treats.

I have been a pot smoker for 44 years, and have some experience with growing. I love marijuana and feel blessed to live in a state where it is legal (Illinois). It is also legal to grow here as long as you have a medical card
