“Cheese is milk’s leap toward immortality” — Clifton Fadimen, American intellectual and author
As a cheese lover and cannabis consumer, the fantasy of an cannabis-infused charcuterie plate drove me to discover whether or not you could infuse cannabis into cheese.
The short answer is, yes. Yes, you can infuse cheese with cannabis, and today I’m going to teach you how. The following recipe makes a farmhouse or farm-style cheese, which I chose for its simplicity. This creamy, lactose-rich type of cheese require very few ingredients and is perfect atop crackers and breads.
Below is a short list of the ingredients and accoutrements you will need to start your journey as a novice infused cheesemaker.
