Majoon, the Arabic edible

Majoon is a traditional northern African medible. Majoon (majun) is made with keif or hash, which is mixed with dried fruit like dates, figs, and raisins, nuts, honey, chocolate or carob, and spices (cinnamon, cloves, mace, ginger, black pepper).

Arabic for 'cannabis confection', majoon is an uncooked, raw treat that’s easy to make and ripe for improvisation & experimentation. I make my majoon with hemp seeds.

Using so-so keif I calculated approximately 3 to 4 servings per gram. I decarb the keif first to activate the THC-A and CBD-A. You can make majoon using cannabutter instead of keif or hash. (I use both cannaghee and keif.) One tablespoon of majoon is one serving. YMMV

Butter or cannabutter

Add the keif or hash

Even Anthony Bourdain can’t resist majoon, and why should he?

Consider eating half of one or licking the bowl before committing to eating one or more whole majoon. YMMV
