How to make weed pancakes batter

  1. Preheat pan or griddle to medium heat.
  2. Combine the four dry ingredients in a mixing bowl with a whisk so they’re evenly distributed.
  3. Add the three wet ingredients. Use wire whisk to stab the yolk to help break it up.
  4. Gently stir and fold the batter together until combined. Try to stir it slowly and as few times as possible.

How to cook weed pancakes

  1. Melt 1/2 tablespoon regular butter (not cannabutter) in frying pan or griddle and spread to coat.
  2. Spoon small ladles full of weed pancake batter into pan. Try to make them consistent in size.
  3. Cook until lightly browned on bottom. When edges of pancakes begin to firm they’re usually ready to flip. Cook until both sides golden brown.

How to determine the THC content and potency of marijuana pancakes

The best way to determine the THC content of your weed pancakes is to pay attention when you make your cannabutter.

If you know the strength of your cannabutter is 700 mg THC per stick (which would be common if you made 1 stick of marijuana butter using 1 gram of shatter), then each tablespoons of your cannabutter would have 87.5 mg THC.  Using two tablespoons of this strength cannabutter in the weed pancake recipe above would mean that the total THC content of the recipe would be 175 mg. Dividing the resulting pancakes equally among four users would mean there would be about 44 mg THC per serving. Divided among 3 users, it would be 58 mg per serving.

How to store marijuana pancakes

Since you are cooking these weed pancake from scratch you’ll want to save any extras by storing them in the fridge for up to a few days or in the freezer for longer-term storage. Vacuum-sealed bags work best but freezer bags will suffice. Clearly label them as being for adults only and indicate the THC content for future reference. Be very cautious if you have kids, especially if your kids are used to eating frozen pancakes.
