Jessie Gill, RN, @Marijuana_Mommy, is a cannabis nurse with a background in holistic health and hospice. Jessie shares her awesome recipe on Cannacake, single serving cannabis edibles, previously published on Marijuana Mommy.
This cannacake is easy. It’s a great way to make edibles for one person or to start trying out small-batch edibles.
Dosing: How to Make Single Dose Edibles
An important note about dosing: How strong this cannacake is, depends on the potency of your cannabutter or cannaoil. The potency of cannabutter and canna-oil varies greatly. Be familiar with your dose and always start small.
One teaspoon of my canna-oil equals one dose. To make this single dose edible recipe, I use one teaspoon of cannabis coconut oil PLUS 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons of regular coconut oil.
You can make your cannacake as strong as you prefer. If you’d like, make it more potent and cut it into several pieces.
Always use caution with edibles. Remember it takes an hour for effects to set in.
(Some people even report that it takes up to four hours before they feel the effects of edibles. It all depends on your individual digestive system.)

Tips For Edibles
LABEL YOUR MEDICATED TREATS! Educate your household (especially children) to recognize that LABELED containers mean the contents are medicated!
If you are using medicated coconut oil or butter, you will need to melt it. I don’t put medicated oil in the microwave.
I place mine in an oven-safe bowl and melt it at a low temp in the oven or I put the sealed jar in a cup of warm water.
Sunflower lecithin increases the absorption capacity of the intestines allowing more cannabinoids to be absorbed making your medication feel stronger.
If your cannabutter doesn’t already have sunflower lecithin, you can add it to your baked goods to enhance the absorption of cannabinoids.
