Baking cookies with cannabutter

Baking cookies with cannabutter


Marijuana cookies are a great THC delivery alternative for people who do not wish to smoke marijuana. Consuming marijuana cookies can also produce a more intense, longer-lasting high than smoking it.If you want to make a batch of marijuana cookies, then you will first need to create some cannabutter, or cannabis infused butter. Then, you can either replace the butter in your favorite cookie recipe with cannabutter, or you can try making a basic chocolate chip cannabis cookie recipe.

This very simple recipe for chocolate chip cookies has a firmer dough than most recipes. It makes 12 large, great tasting cookies with the perfect texture and perfect dough to chocolate ratio.


Use cannabutter, cannamargarine or cannashortening for making cannabis infused chocolate chip cookies. Visit Edibles Tools to learn how to infuse cannabis with butter, margarine and more.


Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before mixing them together. This step will make your life a whole lot easier. Cream together cannabutter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and mix until creamy. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together, then add to wet ingredients. Mix until incorporated but don’t over mix. Finally, stir in chocolate chips. Cannabis chocolate chip cookie dough is complete.


Divide cookie dough into 12 equal portions. Roll dough into balls and space evenly on 2 parchment lined baking sheets. Squish down gently so that dough is 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick. Bake each tray separately in 375°F oven. Since the cookies are quite large, they need to bake about 15 minutes. Check cookies at 12 minutes just to make sure they don’t burn.


Add a Tablespoon of milk powder to the dry ingredients of your chocolate chip cookies to add chewiness.

To finish them off, you can try sprinkling your chocolate chip cookies with salt for added flavour dimension and texture. Interestingly, salt intensifies the sweetness of sugar.


You don’t have to spend hours making cannabutter. You can make quick cannbutter by mixing finely ground cannabis flower with butter,  margarine or shortening.  Heat gently over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, being careful not to let it boil. Cool until solidified and use in recipes.

For Softer Cookies

For softer cookies, you can use cannashortening instead of margarine or butter. Also, cake and pastry flour can be used instead of all purpose flour for added softness.

the long traditions of bhang in India or mahjoun in Morocco. It should come as no surprise, then, that the gradual legalization of weed has led to a spike in creative weed infusions. These days, the sky’s the limit thanks to liposomal CBD, water-soluble THC, and advanced extraction methods. But every now and then, it’s nice to bring it back to the basics.

If you haven’t found a store-bought edible you love or simply want to infuse baked goods with your favorite strain, pot cookies are a great place to start. Here, you’ll find pro tips, what you’ll need, and a simple semi-homemade recipe. 

Tips for making weed cookies


Making sure to decarboxylate your flower is the most important step in any weedy baking project — if you’re hoping to get high, that is. Whether you use a specialized device or an everyday sheet pan, baking crumbled weed in an oven set to 200°F will convert non-intoxicating THCA into the THC we all know and love so much. Skip this step and your cookies might leave you with some warm, fuzzy feelings, but they’re unlikely to produce the full-body high you’d expect from an edible.


The next most important step is to dose your edibles properly. Knowing how strong your cookies will be starts with knowing how strong your flower is, so make sure to check the lab results of your herb. Calculating the precise dose in each cookie will require some math, but air on the side of caution and choose a high-CBD flower for your cannabutter if you’re nervous about overdoing it.


On the topic of cannabutter, there are a few different ways to make it. Whether you go the traditional stovetop method or would prefer to simmer your butter in a slow cooker, there’s 

Oven temperature

To preserve the cannabinoids in your baked goods, try to keep the oven temperature relatively low. Keep the temperature at or below 350°F if you can and skip recipes that won’t work without a high cooking temperature. 

Strong flavors

You can add cannabutter to any recipe to make it infused, but to make it taste good, you’ll want to pair that weedy butter with some strong flavors. Gingerbread and other heavily spiced cookies can be strong as you like with almost no lingering flavor of weed. Chocolate is another favorite for its strong, earthy flavor that can actually complement herbal notes.  

What you’ll need 

Making weed-infused cookies is as simple as swapping out all or part of the regular butter in a recipe with cannabutter. To make it even easier on yourself, use a boxed cookie mix. At a minimum, you will need: 

  • 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
