With a plant as diverse as cannabis making its way onto the shelves of thousands of dispensaries across the U.S., it’s not surprising that more canna-connoisseurs are getting inspired to incorporate the green herb into their daily meals.

While the oven is getting hot, combine the jam and cannabutter in a bowl.
Slice a 2-inch hole into the side of each brioche slice, before stuffing it with the mixture.
Blend the eggs, granulated sugar, cream, and ½ teaspoon of fleur de sel in a bowl.
Melt two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet.

Once browned, place the French toast on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes until cooked thoroughly.

Slather with crème fraîche and strawberry jam.
Add some citrus flavor with a sprinkling of lemon juice, dust with fleur de sel, and enjoy.
