Lunchbox Recipes

Hey, hey canna-chefs! It’s time to grab your POT holders and get BAKED! Um, we mean, do some baking…

We can’t tell you how many times we come across cannabis lovers who hesitate to use edibles. Maybe it’s because of that “special brownie” they ate eons ago that wrecked their life for a few hours, or maybe they just aren’t fans of the items in dispensaries. Maybe they just like to play around in their own kitchen. That’s where Lunchbox Food Grade Oil comes into play. To be clear, this is not your average canna-butter; this is our decarboxylated food grade BHO, cut with organic, non-gmo coconut oil for ease of use. And guess what? All the information you need to make the perfectly portioned edible for you is right on the back of the package.

FGO typically includes around 500 mg of THC in each two gram dispenser.

So what the heck does that mean? That means that if you picked up a box of brownie mix and baked it with the entire dispenser, you would end up with a dozen 42 mg brownies. If you’re familiar with our edibles, that’s just less than half of a Squib. That might be too much, too little, or just the right amount of chemistry for you. The best part is, the recipes are simple to figure out when you understand your personal tolerance. For more information about dosage and potency, go here to learn How to Lunchbox.

Now let’s get real – the modern cannabis connoisseur is not making special brownies anymore. Our taste buds are living in a world of terpene intelligence and medicated everything, and besides, who’s eating brownies with their morning dose of hash oil? So there you are in your kitchen, FGO in hand – what are you going to do with it? Fear not! With the help of our canna-chefs we’ve compiled a few of our favorite everyday recipes for you to Take ‘n Bake at home.

To understand servings in one dispenser, take a look at the little black markers. With 500 mg of THC in a 2 ml dispenser, each 1/10 ml marker indicates approximately 25 mg of THC. To start smaller, use 1-2 drops and mix thoroughly. When baking, or working with hand tools, be sure to mix oil evenly to ensure a consistent result.
