Our Ginger & Mary Jane Fried Rice recipe combines the savory goodness of traditional fried rice with the unique benefits and flavors of cannabis. It's a match made in culinary heaven!
A note from the JAM team: Everyone's tolerance and reaction to cannabis can vary. Start with a small portion, savor the flavors, and give yourself time to experience the effects. Enjoy responsibly and embrace the high life!
Be mindful of your dosage when using THC or CBD.
A standard dose of THC in an edible is 5-10 mg, so calculate accordingly. Click here for information about dosing and potency.
Start with a low dose and wait at least an hour before slowly consuming more, as the effects of ingested cannabis can take longer to kick in and can affect people differently.
Preparing for a "Highly" Delicious Meal
But before we embark on our Mary Jane Fried Rice adventure, we need to start by infusing cannabis into oil. Remember, the key is to activate the psychoactive and therapeutic compounds in the cannabis by heating it at a low temperature. This process, known as decarboxylation, is crucial for unlocking the full potential of the herb.
Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, you can infuse it into your preferred cooking oil - we call for peanut oil in this recipe. Heat it up, let the flavors blend, and you've got yourself a cannabis-infused base ready to take your fried rice to a whole new level. The recipe below will take you through the process step-by-step.
The High Life: Benefits of this Cannabis infused Fried Rice Recipe
Beyond the taste, cannabis-infused fried rice offers potential therapeutic benefits. Cannabis contains cannabinoids like THC and CBD, which have been known to provide pain relief, reduce anxiety, and promote relaxation. When combined with delicious, gingery fried rice, you get a meal that not only satisfies your hunger but also helps you unwind and find your bliss.
Ginger & Mary Jane Fried Rice is a Feast for the Senses
Our recipe is spiked with ginger, garlic, and shallots, (and weed, of course). But if you like it spicy you can always add a splash (or three) of your favorite hot sauce. Serve it as a side dish, or top it with an egg and make it a meal. Garnish it with toasted coconut, sliced scallions and a pinch of freshly grated cannabis bud. With a dash of creativity and a sprinkle of herbal magic, this Mary Jane Fried Rice recipe is not only fun to make, it's fun to eat. Do note that the rice should be cold before you stir-fry it. So it's a great way to use up leftover rice. No leftovers? No problem! Make a batch of rice and chill it – ideally overnight.
