What’s cookin’ this year? We recommend putting an easy-to-eat twist on the traditional turkey with a more potluck-friendly option: turkey and sage meatballs. Drizzled with a delectable cranberry orange sauce, these marijuana-infused morsels work great as an appetizer or can be served as the main course.

Note: Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
