The first and hardest step to cooking with cannabis is to make the oil or butter. When heated with butter/oil the THC in weed activates and binds to the fat, thus infusing the butter/oil with THC. Traditionally, we hear about weed butter but when it comes to which fat to use, go for coconut oil. Since coconut oil has a higher quantity of saturated fats than butter and olive oil, more THC can be absorbed.
You can substitute your cannabis infused coconut oil into any recipe calling for coconut oil or butter. Substituting coconut oil for butter is a 1 to 1 ratio.
Cannabis Coconut Oil
- 1 cup of virgin coconut oil
- ¼ ounce of cannabis
- Preheat oven to 290°F.
- Grind the weed finely to create more surface area and extract the most THC.
- Decarb (or decarboxylate) your weed. This step is sensitive, so keep an eye on your weed to make sure it doesn’t burn. Basically, you’re toasting the weed to heat activate it. Put your weed on a pan or in a tinfoil pouch and then pop it in the oven for 7 minutes. Don’t burn it!
- Take the toasted out, and turn oven down to 250°F. Give it some time to cool down.
- While the oven is cooling off, melt the coconut oil in the microwave.
- Mix your decarbed/toasted weed with the melted coconut oil in an oven safe dish. Cover with foil and put in the oven for 60 minutes.
- After 60 minutes, remove the dish and let cool for a few minutes. Filter out the weed bits with a strainer, coffee filter, or cheesecloth. You can use the oil as is or let it solidify in the fridge.

A reader recently asked if I had a peanut butter cookies recipe. I could not believe I had never published one before.
In most cases I favor all-natural peanut butter, you know the kind that usually has a thick layer of oil on top and is made from just peanuts and salt. However, all-natural peanut butter does NOT make the best peanut butter cookies! They come out kind of grainy and dry (as I learned the hard way). So, for this recipe, I recommend something like Jif or Skippy. Either creamy or crunchy style will do, as to your preference for chunks or no chunks.
I use marijuana-infused butter to medicate this recipe. My How to Make Cannabis Butter tutorial will teach you how to make it.
Chilling the dough before baking helps keep the cookies from spreading out too much, although if you are impatient, you can skip this step, but expect thinner cookies.
Freezer Friendly Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies
For hot medicated cookies anytime, freeze individual unbaked cookies on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Once frozen, transfer to a plastic freezer container or bag. Whenever you want a medicated treat, remove however many cookies you want at a time and bake according to recipe instructions, adding a minute or two to the baking time.
A note about the Dosing on this recipe!
This recipe will have about 25 mg THC per cookie IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter. To adjust the dosage for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or better yet, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
