Looking for a way to make your relatives chill out this Thanksgiving? Weed butter-rubbed turkey might do the trick. Cut's Baked series has the recipe that could make your holiday food coma more blissful than usual.

Start by pre-making the cannabutter rub. In a saucepan boil unsalted butter, water, a 1/4-ounce of ground marijuana. Then let it cool overnight in the refrigerator. Next create a marinade with another 1/4-ounce of weed, a few tablespoons of cannabutter, stock, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Prep the turkey (the recipe calls for a 12-pounder) by rubbing it down in cannabutter, salt, and pepper and injecting it with marinade for a fully weed-infused flesh. Roast, rest, and serve. Between the tryptophan and the marijuana you're likely to leave the dinner table relaxed and ready for a post-feast nap.
