Choosing Your Infusion
There are lots of different ways to infuse your cannabis cookie recipes. The first thing you'll want to do is decide what part of your recipe you want to be medicated. You can use CannaButter, Canna Oil, CannaHoney, Cannabis Infused Flour, sugar or milk.
To get started, you want to choose just ONE medicated ingredient. But as you get more experienced, and if you want a more potent cookie, you may decide to have more than one medicated ingredient.
Making Your Medicated Ingredient(s)
If you're brand new to cooking with cannabis, complete the form below to download our free guide to getting started.
First, you'll need to decarb your weed.
Then you'll use the decarbed weed to create your infusion.
- See how to make Cannabis Butter
- See how to make Canna Oil (Cannabis Oil or Cannabis Coconut oil)
- See how to make Canna Honey
You can also use it to make medicated flour, medicated milk, cannabis sugar or even cannabis maple syrup.
Your infusion will make enough to create multiple batches of cookies or other edibles, so think of this step as building the foundation for a lot of your future cannabis cooking adventures.
Choosing Your Cookie Recipe
You can turn any cookie recipe into a weed cookie. You'll simply exchange some or all of one of the ingredients with a cannabis-infused version of that ingredient.
So if you're making cannabis chocolate chip cookies, you'll exchange some or all of the butter with CannaButter. Or the flour, sugar or milk.
If you're making cannabis peanut butter cookies, you'll exchange some or all of the peanut butter, butter, flour or sugar.
Determining Your Dosage
Before you get started, you'll want to decide how potent to make your weed cookies. There are pros and cons to going super strong and super weak.
If you have a high tolerance, or if you're counting your calories, you may opt for a stronger cookie. This will allow you to eat less in order to get high. You may be able to eat just half a cookie or one cookie instead of two or three. You'll use more of your infusion, but your cookies will last longer.
If you have a lower tolerance, if you're just getting started, or if you know you won't be able to stop with just one cookie, you may opt for a less potent cookie. This will allow you to better control the dosing as you eat, it may give you the option to eat more than one cookie, and it will use less of your infusion (although you'll eat your cookies faster).
Once you determine your ideal dosage, you can use our dosage calculator to determine how much of your infused ingredient you'll need to use to replace an ingredient in the original recipe.
You can also just use one of our cookie recipes and adjust the potentcy accordingly. All of our recipes walk you through the approximate amount of mg of THC per serving.
Gathering the Ingredients for your Weed Cookie Recipe
The hard part is over, now you get to start baking.
First, gather the following ingredients. Most recipes will take white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, all purpose flour, milk, vanilla extract, butter, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.
In a small bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients (except white or brown sugars). This includes any medicated versions you'll be using.
In a separate bowl (medium bowl or large bowl), beat together all of your wet ingredients. This includes the infused version of any wet ingredients (like CannaButter or CannaMilk). You can use a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
HINT: For most recipes, having your wet ingredients at room temperature will be best. This includes your milk, eggs and butter - and could also include maple syrup or honey.
Once your wet ingredients are beaten, add in your sugar(s). Beat well.
Then, slowly stir in your flour mixture to your butter mixture - mixing by hand.
Once everything is mixed, you'll want to add in any of your extras. This could include chocolate chips, oatmeal, nuts, etc.
Preparing your Pot Cookies for Baking or Freezing
At this point you'll want to follow your recipe. You may need to refrigerate your pot cookie dough for a period of time. Preheat the oven to the appropriate temperature and then dose out your dough.
This is a more important step than if you were just baking regular cookies - as the size of the cookie will impact the strength of each individual cookie.
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.
Bake according to recipe instructions. Remove from oven, let cool for two minutes on the pan and then transfer cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Repeat until all cookies are baked.
Freezing your Cookie Dough
Want to bake some cookies now and freeze the rest of the dough for later? We've got you covered!
Follow the steps above to create tablespoon-size balls of cookie dough and line them on a 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.
Storing Weed Cookies
Once you've baked your cookies and let them cool, it's time to store them. You'll want to store your cookies in an airtight container. If you'll be eating them immediately, you can keep them on your counter for up to one week.
After that, you'll want to store them in the freezer for up to six months. Be sure to label them with the date and the amount of thc per serving - as well as how much is in a single serving. Click here for free labels.
