Ardent Infused Copycat IKEA Swedish Meatballs

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. If you’re moving: packing, making trips back and forth to the car, battling bumps, bruises, and strains, you’ll probably need some muscle and joint relief.

Now comes the tough part: new neighbors, a new landlord, and even pesky roommates. They might not be as 420-friendly as they appeared to be when the lease was signed and the keys were handed over. Keep your cannabis kitchen adventures as discreet as can be with the Ardent FX and new Ardent FX Scent Shield, an odor trapping lid to provide an extra layer of security and a solution for sensitive noses.

It only takes a single trip to IKEA to start craving their Swedish meatballs.

How to Get Started

This recipe is very forgiving when it comes to infusion. You have the option to infuse salt, heavy cream, butter, olive oil, or a combination of all four. And if you want to skip the prep and use a ready-made infusion, try Ardent's Done-For-You Cannabutter with 600mg THC and 600mg CBD per jar!
