  1. Start with a low dosage, especially if you’re new to edibles or have a low tolerance.
  2. Determine the potency of your cannabis-infused butter to gauge the strength of your cheesecake.
  3. Calculate the approximate dosage per serving by considering the THC content of the cannabis flower used.


For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup melted cannabis-infused butter

For the Cannabis Cheesecake Filling:

  • 3 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup cannabis-infused heavy cream
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)


Note: Before starting the recipe, ensure you have already prepared the cannabis-infused butter according to your desired potency.

Preparing the crust:

1. In a bowl, combine 1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs, ¼ cup of granulated sugar, and ½ cup of melted cannabis-infused butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
2. Press the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan, forming an even layer. Refrigerate the crust while preparing the cheesecake filling.

Prepare the Cannabis Cheesecake Filling:

1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat 3 packages (8 oz each) of softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
3. Add 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and ½ cup of cannabis-infused heavy cream to the cream cheese. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
4. Gradually add 3 large eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
5. Stir in ¼ cup of all-purpose flour and the zest of 1 lemon (optional). Mix until the batter is smooth and uniform.

Assembling and baking the cheesecake:

1. Pour the cheesecake filling onto the chilled crust in the springform pan, spreading it evenly.
2. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 55-60 minutes or until the edges are set but the center still has a slight jiggle.
3. Turn off the oven, leave the cheesecake inside with the door slightly ajar, and let it cool for an hour.
4. Afterward, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature.
5. Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow it to set and develop its flavors.

Serving and enjoying:

1. Before serving, remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate.
2. Slice the cannabis cheesecake into individual servings.
3. Remember to educate guests about the cannabis content and dosage per serving if sharing the cheesecake.
4. Enjoy your cannabis cheesecake responsibly and in moderation.
