Vegan Edibles: Four Great Websites for Pot-Infused Recipes

Living the vegan life requires discipline, commitment and an ability to resist temptation. Nothing goes into a vegan’s body without thoughtfulness – unless you're stoned. Yes, vegans get the munchies, too: If there’s one sleeve of dairy- and egg-free cookies left, you might as well eat them all, right?

But it can be hard to determine the exact composition of an edible, and that's a problem: Not only do vegans want to make sure there’s no animal product in anything they eat, but most embrace an overall philosophy of healthy consumption in all forms, and that means they want pesticide-free and organic edibles, too.

One solution? Make your own healthy edibles. After a little digging, we found four great sites stocked with cannabis-infused vegan recipes. So, vegan warriors, grab a fresh bowl of blueberries and read on.


Formerly the Stoner’s Cookbook, HERB has branched out into more cannabis culture as of late, but it's still one of the best sites to get started cooking with cannabis and making vegan edibles. You can choose from introductory cannabis tutorials and learn what "decarboxylation" means and why it’s important. The videos are ultra-helpful, with step-by-step directions, making the impossible seem totally possible. You won’t find more cannabis recipes anywhere else.
