Hot heads, unite.
Hot sauce is one of the best things on the planet. You can put hot sauce on almost anything to give it some heat, flavor, and zing! Many of us enjoy hot sauce so much that we can eat it almost every single day. And if you love weed too, guess what? You can make your very own weed-infused hot sauces from the comforts of your own home.
It’s so easy too!
Cannabis-infused hot sauce can be used on just about anything that you already enjoy hot sauce with. These can include pizza, pasta, tacos, eggs, chicken wings, or any other meal. The ingredients are so inexpensive, especially if you already grow your own peppers, tomatoes, or both. Even better, when you make your own hot sauce, you can customize it to exactly how you want in terms of both flavor and heat.
Before you get started, check out this recipe we have for cannabis-infused olive oil or cannabis-infused coconut oil, which you may need to make if you don’t have your own cannabis-infused cooking oils to use.

Basic Tomato-Based Cannabis Infused Hot Sauce Recipe
A basic tomato-based hot sauce recipe is a staple in every kitchen. It’s simple, easy to make, and has the best flavor that you can put on anything. For this recipe, you’ll need some equipment:
- Food processor or blender
- Chopping board
- Medium sauce pan or soup pot
- Airtight bottle for storage
- 3 large tomatoes
- 3-5 garlic cloves, depending on how much garlic flavor you want
- 1 small white onion
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 hot chilis of your choice (remove the seeds for a milder heat, and keep them for more spice)
- Cannabis-infused oil
- Rinse the fresh ingredients well. These include the tomatoes, peppers, and onions.
- Chop the tomatoes and onions into small quarters.
- Peel the garlic and leave them whole.
- Cut the chilis up into tiny pieces.
- Put the tomatoes, peppers, garlic cloves, and onions into the medium pot. Place just enough water to cover the ingredients.
- Boil the pot in medium heat. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat then allow the mixture to simmer for around 15 minutes. The tomatoes should be softened by then.
- Once the tomatoes are soft, scoop out the ingredients and put them into a food processor. Add the sugar, white vinegar, and a teaspoon of salt to taste.
- Add around a tablespoon of cannabis-infused oil.
- Blend everything together until the texture is homogenous and smooth. Add a few drops of water each time if it’s too thick.
- Use a clean teaspoon to taste the sauce, and see if it comes out to your desired taste. Season, add salt, sugar, or chopped up chilis if needed.
- Pour the hot sauce into an airtight container. Refrigerate for at least one hour before using.

If you like flavors of the tropics, then mango hot sauce is for you. This hot sauce will transport you to the Caribbean, and it’s just as versatile as a basic tomato hot sauce. Use weed-infused mango hot sauce on pizzas, tacos, or buffalo wings to infuse a fruity punch to your food.
