You can start with a small amount of cannabis and make a variety of types of edibles - and we'll show you how from start to finish.
If you haven't experienced an edible high before, you'll find that it's quite a bit different than the effects of smoking. The good news is that you can feel a great high without the negative effects of smoking, but it's important to remember that it's a delayed effect - which means that it could take 45 minutes to an hour to feel like anything is happening.

How to Properly Store Weed Cookies
Regardless of the type of cannabis extract you're baking with, the most important thing to remember when storing weed edibles cookies is making sure that they don't dry out. This means that the best way to store them is in an airtight container - like a tupperware or a ziploc freezer bag. You can also use saran wrap or aluminum foil, but this will probably lead to a shorter shelf life.
We recommend labeling your pot cookies as soon as they're baked. Include the type of cookie, active ingredients, the date they were baked, and the amount of THC per serving (and how much is considered one serving).
You can leave them in a sealed container at room temperature in a cool, dry place - like on the counter or in a cabinet for up to one week. After that, it's a good idea to store them in the fridge or freezer.
How Long to Store Weed Cookies
Cannabis cookies can last for varying amounts of time depending on how they're stored.
On the counter (in an airtight container): 5-7 days
In the refrigerator (in an airtight container): 2-3 weeks
In the freezer (in an airtight container): up to 6 months.
Freezing Weed Cookies
Interested in freezing your marijuana edibles? This is a very popular way to store your edible products. It allows you to cook once and eat for six months. You have two options: freeze the baked cookie or freeze the unbaked dough.
Freezing the Baked Cannabis Products
If you know you won't be eating all of your cookies for a long time, you'll want to freeze them. Simply store them in an airtight container and place in the freezer for up to six months.
Freezing the UnBaked Cookie Dough
One of our favorite edibles hacks is cooking once and eating for the next six months. And do you know how impressive it is to serve homemade Cannabis Cookies fresh out of the oven when you have guests? Or making one for yourself every single night after dinner? It's absolute heaven.
Line a cookie sheet or baking tray with parchment paper and use a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon and spoon dough into one-tablespoon balls. Separate the tablespoons of dough by two inches on each baking sheet. Place in the freezer for at least two hours. Remove from freezer and place in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to six months. Now you can bake just one cookie at a time whenever the mood strikes. You can defrost the dough in the fridge overnight or simply add additional baking time.
Regardless of how you decide to freeze your food items, a good rule of thumb is to properly label them with the mg of THC per serving (and what is considered a serving) so you'll always know exactly how much THC you'll be ingesting. You may also want to include the expiration date so you don't have to do any math on the fly.
Will Weed Cookies Lose Their Potency over Time?
The potency of the edibles tends to lessen after six months - which is why we recommend enjoying your frozen thc edibles within that timeframe. Afraid you'll forget about your freezer goodies?
- Make a habit of checking your freezer each month to see what you need to eat and when.
- If a big batch is coming up on expiration, throw a cannabis party and invite your friends for a true feast.
- Need to ditch some in a hurry? Give a friend a gift of cannabis edibles from your freezer.
- Keep a log of your cannabis creations, when they were baked, mg of THC and expiration date.
Which Weed Cookies are the Best?
It's so hard to choose which cannabis cookies are the best - especially since everyone feels so strongly and has their own preference. Personally, I love no-bake cookies and anything with M&Ms. My mom is a sucker for banana cookies, and my husband swears that he'll die if he doesn't eat a cannabis sugar cookie every single day. Go figure.
You might choose a cookie based on your favorites, or you might decide to make cookie brownie bars if you don't have time for cookies. Bars can cut your baking time in half, and you still get the same impact.
If you're having a hard time deciding, here are some of our favorite recipes.
