This easy and quick cannabutter mugcake recipe is one of our favorites for many reasons. Other than it’s easy and quick to make, it also tastes delicious. And perhaps most important: each cannabutter mugcake can be dosed individually. 

First, you need some cannabutter of course.

Then, it’s up to you to decide how high you want to go…

When cannabis is eaten instead of smoked or vaped, it takes a longer amount of time to work. This can be tricky for both experienced and inexperienced cannabis consumers. That’s why we will always recommend to smoke or vape cannabis first to people who aren’t regular users. Although it isn’t possible to overdose, the effects of consuming more cannabis than you’re capable of handling, aren’t very pleasant. To read up on some of the effects, check out some of our edible reviews.
