Infused Sweet Potato Soup


High in fibre and potassium, sweet potatoes have more sugar than regular potatoes, but also contains more nutrients and fewer calories. If you don’t have canna oil, canna butter will also work. The soup itself is cannabis free, and may be served to anyone. It’s the rich scallion and bacon topping that has the infused ingredients. Feel free to make a big batch of the soup and freeze it, allowing you to quickly make your infused topping for dinner in minutes.


3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2-3 tablespoons canna oil*
3 scallions, chopped
3 strips bacon, cooked and chopped into large pieces
2 teaspoons chili powder
½ teaspoon cayenne
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cream
3-4 cups of chicken or vegetable stock

 *Depending on the strength of your oil and your tolerance level. You may also use canna butter if that is what you have on hand.*


1. In a large pot, cover the sweet potatoes in water and summer until tender, approximately 20-25 minutes.

2. While the potatoes simmer, heat the canna oil (or butter) in a medium saucepan and sauté the scallions for three minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from heat and add the bacon, stirring to incorporate.

3. Puree the sweet potatoes in a food processor or blender until fully smooth, before adding the spices, cream and stock. Continue to puree until all of the ingredients are combined.

4. Warm up the soup before serving and top with the scallions and bacon.



Dosing remains highly individualized and varies according to your symptoms and strength of the cannabis strain being used. As a general rule, try and maintain easily understood ratios between amounts of cannabis and butter or oil being infused. If your infused oil or butter is particularly strong, consider using only half infused and half non-infused, or whatever ratio works best for your specific needs. It’s incredibly important to keep your edibles out of reach of children or anyone else in your household who should not be using them. Make sure your edibles are properly marked and stashed safely away.

It is important to remember to always “start low and go slow.” 

Determining your optimal dose requires careful consideration and guidance from a healthcare professional. It is best to consult with your healthcare provider in order to determine your individual dose.
