For centuries, people have been consuming cannabis-infused foods. India has a long tradition of bhang, and in Morocco there is mahjoun. So it should not be surprising that as weed becomes more legalized, there is also an increase creativity in recipes using weed. Nowadays extraction methods are much improved from the past, meaning the sky’s the limit when it comes to what can be created. However, sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics occasionally.

You don’t have to be a professional baker or possess culinary skills to bake weed cookies. With this semi-homemade recipe, you’ll only need a few ingredients and some pro tips from us.

Tips for Making Marijuana Cookies

Decarboxylation

The most critical step in any weedy baking project is to decarboxylate your flower if you desire to get high. By utilizing a specialized device or an everyday sheet pan, crumbled weed can be baked in an oven set to 200°F which will convert non-intoxicating THCA into the THC we all know and love. If this step is skipped, then it’s possible that your cookies might only produce feelings of warmth and fuzziness rather than the expected full-body high from eating an edible.

Dosing

Creating food with the perfect cannabis dosage is not only key, but it’s easy to do if you understand potency and how to properly measure ingredients. Let’s start by diving into potency: first check your herb’s lab results so that you know what you’re working with. To ensure each serving has the correct amount of cannabutter, calculate δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol content per cookie (or whatever edibles recipe you choose). Just remember that it takes roughly two hours for effects to peak, so don’t dose too high at once—start small and increase as needed.

Cannabutter

If you’re looking to make cannabutter, there are a few different ways to do it. You can choose the traditional stovetop method or simmer your butter in a slow cooker, depending on what you prefer. For more instructions, take a look at our guide below.

Oven temperature

By keeping the oven temperature low, you can help preserve the cannabinoids in your food. If possible, aim for 350°F or lower. You might also want to avoid recipes that require a high cooking temperature, as this could impact the potency of your edibles.

Strong flavors

Any recipe can be cannabis-infused by adding cannabutter, but for best results you’ll want to use it in recipes with strong flavors. For example, gingerbread and other heavily spiced cookies can hide the weed flavor well. Chocolate is another good choice due to its rich taste which may even enhance herbal notes.

What you’ll need

You only need to do a simple substitution to turn regular cookies into weed-infused ones – use cannabutter in place of all or part of the butter called for in the recipe. If you want to make things even easier, start with a boxed cookie mix! The minimal items you’ll need are:

  • 3.5 grams of ground cannabis
  • 2 sticks of butter (more if you want to do a mix of regular butter and cannabutter)
  • Boxed cookie mix
  • Eggs
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Cookie sheet pan
  • Small saucepan
  • Spatula

How to make pot cookies

  1. Prepare your cannabutter.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  3. Choose the proportion of cannabutter to regular butter you would want to use.
  4. To make your cookies, simply follow the instructions on the cookie mix packet. Add all of the dry ingredients to your mixing bowl, then add wet ingredients as directed.
  5. Mix thoroughly to ensure the cannabutter is evenly distributed.
  6. Scoop small amounts of dough onto your baking sheet using a spoon, making sure to leave enough space in between each scoop.
  7. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until your cookies are lightly browned around the edges.
  8. After the cookies have cooled, enjoy one cookie. Wait two hours before consuming another.
