Cannabis-Infused Pancakes

We’ve turned this breakfast classic on its head with a 4/20 inspired update. With some common ingredients, and some simple steps, these cannabis-infused pancakes will start your day on a high note.

This recipe requires prepared cannabutter prior to getting started. You can find our cannabutter recipe here. Always consume cannabis responsibly.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: ~8 pancakes


  • Large measuring cup
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Small saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Griddle or large skillet
  • Basting or pastry brush


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup buttermilk (room temperature)
  • ¼ cup milk (room temperature)
  • 1 large egg, beaten (room temperature)
  • 1 tbsp cannabutter
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter Vegetable oil for pan


  1. Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl.

  2. Place the unsalted butter and cannabutter in a small sauce pan and stir over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside in a warm place.

  3. In a large (minimum 2-cup) liquid measuring cup, combine buttermilk and milk. Add beaten egg and whisk to combine. While mixing, drizzle melted cannabutter mixture into milk/egg mixture. Note: it is important that all ingredients are at room temperature, otherwise the cannabutter will clump and not mix well.

  4. Dump egg/milk mixture into dry ingredients all at once and whisk until just combined. If batter looks too thick to pour, add a few more tablespoons of milk. Note: do not overmix or pancakes will be tough.

  5. Heat griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat. Brush all over with vegetable oil. Once the surface is hot, pour batter (roughly ¼ cup per pancake) onto griddle, taking care not to overcrowd. When pancake bottoms brown and top surface starts to bubble, 2-3 minutes, flip and cook until that side has browned, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

  6. Place finished pancakes on a warmed plate or an oven-safe pan. Brush cooking surface with more oil and repeat for the next batch of pancakes. Cooked pancakes can be kept warm in a 225°F oven for 10-15 minutes.

Now is where things get interesting. You can serve these pancakes with a variety of toppings of your choice. Some of our favourites include:

  • Warmed pure maple syrup and butter
  • Fresh berries, whipped cream and berry coulis
  • Brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter
  • Nutella and strawberries
  • Honey with chopped nuts and banana slices

Remember, it can take anywhere between 60-180 minutes for you to begin to feel the effects of ingested cannabis and the effects may be felt up to 8+ hours after consumption. The JWC family reminds you to always consume responsibly.


These calculations are approximate and are based on our cannabutter recipe which you can find here.

This recipe may contain a total of ~65.6 mg/THC. Each serving (one pancake) may contain ~8.2 mg/THC. Always consume cannabis responsibly.


With any cannabis-infused edibles, the general rule is to start with a low amount, and only increase slowly. Here at JWC, we would like to remind you that determining your dosage should be based on the information provided to you on your medical document. Do not change your dosage without first consulting with your healthcare provider. As always, make sure that your edibles are properly labelled and are stored out of reach of children and pets. When working with edible, cannabis-infused products, try to understand and maintain the ratios between the amount of cannabis and the butter or oil being infused. If your cannabis butter or oil is potent, consider reducing the amount used in your recipe by using a mix of infused and regular butter.
