Prepare the Roux:
In a saucepan, melt the cannabis-infused butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and whisk continuously to create a roux. Cook the roux until it turns golden brown, but be careful not to burn it. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

Gradually Add Broth:
Slowly pour in the turkey or chicken broth while whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Continue whisking until the gravy thickens. If you have drippings from the roasted turkey, add them now for extra flavor.

Season the Gravy:
Add salt and black pepper to the gravy, adjusting the seasoning to taste. Continue to simmer the gravy over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 5-10 minutes until it reaches your desired thickness.

Strain (Optional):
For a smoother texture, you can strain the gravy through a fine mesh sieve to remove any lumps.

Serve and Enjoy:
Pour the cannabis-infused turkey gravy into a boat and serve it alongside your roasted turkey and other Thanksgiving dishes. Remember to inform your guests that the gravy is infused with cannabis, especially if they are not regular consumers.

Note: The potency of your cannabis-infused butter will determine the strength of your gravy. Adjust the amount of cannabis-infused butter according to your personal tolerance and the preferences of your guests.

4 cups chicken or turkey broth
1/4 cup fresh sage leaves, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
1/4 cup fresh thyme leaves, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Basting the Turkey:
Roast your turkey in the oven according to your favorite recipe. During the roasting process, use a basting brush or spoon to generously baste the turkey with the cannabis-infused baste every 30 minutes or so. This will infuse the turkey with the flavors of the infused butter and herbs, keeping it moist and flavorful.

Finish Cooking:
Follow the recommended cooking times for your turkey based on its weight. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) in the thickest part of the turkey.

Rest and Carve:
Once the turkey is fully cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 20-30 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to be distributed, keeping the meat tender and juicy.

Serve and Enjoy:
Carve the turkey and serve it with your favorite side dishes. The cannabis-infused baste will add a delicious herbal flavor to your turkey, making it a unique and enjoyable addition to your Thanksgiving meal.
