DIY Your Pride With Medicated Make-Your-Own Donuts

It doesn’t take much convincing to see that there’s something about the LGBTQ+ community and cannabis that go together like JVN and a midi skirt. Not only are they a natural fit as once taboo topics and lifestyles only now being embraced by the public on a more national scale, but in addition, the cannabis industry owes a sizable debt to the Queer community, who served as some of the earliest activists for medical legalization in response to the AIDS crisis. Were it not for those individuals, cannabis access as it exists today may not have been possible.  

While there aren’t enough baked goods in the world to pay that debt of gratitude, these medicated, decorate-your-own donut recipes using product from Blüm Dispensary might start the ball rolling. Like any good Pride, these donuts are all about creativity and resourcefulness, taking something accessible and elevating it with flavor and flair.

As always, remember that cannabis edibles, especially tasty ones like these, should be clearly marked to avoid consumption by children.

  • Edibles contain THC but because it passes through your stomach & intestines to get into your bloodstream, you may not feel the effects for between .5 to 4 hours. So, don’t overconsume these tasty treats in search of a buzz.
