  1. Prep the Pasta:

    • Get a large pot of salted water boiling. Toss in the macaroni and let it cook just until al dente. It should still have a bit of a bite since it’ll cook further in the oven. Drain well.
  2. Make the Cannabis-Infused Roux:

    • In another pot, melt the cannabis butter over a medium heat. Stir in the flour and keep mixing to avoid any lumps. Cook this mixture for about two minutes to cook off the floury taste.
  3. Create the Cheese Sauce:

    • Slowly pour the milk into your roux while continuously stirring to keep things smooth. Let this simmer until it starts to thicken, about five minutes. Drop the heat to low and gradually mix in the cheddar and Gruyère until you have a smooth and velvety cheese sauce. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  4. Combine Pasta and Sauce:

    • Fold the macaroni into your sauce, ensuring each piece is well-coated. If you’re tossing in any extras like bacon or jalapeños, now’s the time to add them.
  5. Bake to Perfection:

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Spoon your mac and cheese into a greased baking dish, and evenly sprinkle over the breadcrumbs. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until the top is golden and crispy.
  6. Serving:

    • Give your Cannabis Mac and Cheese a few minutes to cool before serving. This little wait lets it set up for that perfect, creamy consistency. Serve warm.

Tips for Dosage:

  • Know Your Tolerance: The strength of cannabis butter can vary, so it’s important to know its potency and tailor the amount used accordingly.
  • Start Small: If you’re new to edibles, consider starting with a smaller portion to see how it affects you.

Enjoy this Cannabis Mac and Cheese, a dish that comforts the soul and relaxes the mind. Remember, the key is to consume responsibly and savor every bite. Happy cooking!
