You've avoided turning your oven on all summer. We can hardly blame you.

But as the season draws to a close, what better way to celebrate the return to dreary autumnal life than by baking up a storm—and getting baked out of your skull in the process?

Enter the world of cannabis cupcakes.

Of course, you don't the Platinum Blueberry-based cannabutter to make these—they're plenty tasty on their own, with a little bit of sour cream for tartness and suppleness, and legit Madagascar vanilla paste (no fake stuff from the bottle) to give it that from-a-real-deal-bakery vibe.

RECIPE: Cannabis Cupcakes

The frosting—made from 70% dark chocolate and topped with rainbow sprinkles—isn't fucking around in the flavor department either.

But should you choose to add a little bit of bud to your butter, you'll be more than pleased with the result. And since cannabis tends to cause a slowed perception of time in most users, you'll be on that endless summer tip all week.
