Rosemary & Garlic Cannabis Infused Cheese Rolls

For Mother's Day this year, LEVO and Barbari Shop teamed up to bring you some new, herb-infused twists on old family favorite recipes.


We contributed one of our personal favorites, homemade cheese rolls that Mom has made since we were kids.

The spin on this recipe does include using cannabis in the herb pod — but remember that there are non-THC cannabis strains available nationwide (if you live in Columbia, MO shoot us an email and we can let you know where to find this) that will be rich in other, non-intoxicating cannabinoids like CBD that you can use, or you can just leave the cannabis out and settle for enhancing with just garlic and rosemary — an awesome herb that has the common cannabis terpenes pinene and limonene, which both have incredible anti-inflammatory properties and can be beneficial for pain relief, alertness, memory retention, asthma, anxiety, depression, immune system, mood, and more! 

Opportunities for Cannabinoid Infusion

If you'd like to enhance this recipe with cannabinoids, consider using one of the products below. We recommend using between 5-30mg of CBD per serving, depending on your needs and body weight (typically 1-5mg of CBD per 10 lbs of body weight, learn more about dosing here). Remember to always start low and go slow when it comes to cannabinoids, and be sure to read our CBD Safety article and talk to your doctor before incorporating something new into your routine.


LEVO Oil Infusion Machine

One way to infuse this recipe with cannabinoids is by adding a legally available cannabis flower to your herb pod, as described in their recipe. Check out this Cannabis Cooking Calculator to determine how much cannabis you need to add to your LEVO herb pod — it can help you calculate for both THC and CBD! 

If you're in a legal state or have access to hemp, you can also add available cannabis flower to your LEVO herb pod to infuse the butter in this recipe. To infuse cannabis flower with butter, set your LEVO to 165˚F for 2.5 hours.

Papa & Barkley Essentials Hemp Drops CBD Tincture

Another option is to add a nationally available and legal CBD product, such as Papa & Barkley’s Full Spectrum CBD Tincture to the melted butter that you will use to glaze the tops of the rolls with before adding garlic salt. We recommend using about 2.5mg CBD (approximately 5 drops from Papa & Barkley’s Essentials Tincture) per roll. 

This tincture is a whole plant extraction made with hemp grown in Colorado and carried in fractionated coconut or MCT oil. It is a lipid infusion, meaning that it uses no solvents in the extraction process and retains a full range of phytonutrients, including all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. A full dropper of their 450mg bottle contains 30mg of CBD, and the dropper has measurements on the side for easy dosing.
