Edible weed cookies
With the general public’s stance on marijuana decidedly different than it was a decade ago thanks to changes throughout the US, allowing both medical and recreational usages in various states, a happy byproduct is that we have better information than ever when it comes to making weed edibles — a delivery system that continues to reinvent the way that people get high.
While weed edibles these days run the gamut from Thanksgiving recipes to cupcakes, there is no denying that baking cookies or brownies remains an all-time classic. However, knowing how to make edibles requires a certain amount of knowledge, both of cooking and marijuana, to craft the perfect batch.
After all, people are looking for something that both tastes good and is potent. Unfortunately, you can’t get that by simply slapping some pre-bought mix on a cookie sheet, adding crumbled weed, and lobbing it in the oven. Never fear, though. We’ve got you covered when it comes to how to make weed edibles and the perfect edibles recipe.
The actual items you need
So you’ve got some weed and want to start making edibles. That’s a good start. In fact, many might be more at ease handling the marijuana aspect of this gambit than the cooking. But rather than think of your weed edible’s potency as the number one goal, instead think of getting some quality chocolate, such as Guittard or Scharffen Berger.
From there, you’ll want to also pick up six large eggs, two sticks of unsalted butter, vanilla extract, sugar, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and kosher salt. From a utilitarian perspective, you’ll also need a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, a weed grinder, food processor, wooden spoon, cheesecloth, and two large pots.
Still with me? Good. Then let’s learn how to make edibles so that these weed cookies can eventually turn into weed cake in the future.
Pick your strain
Like with junk food, picking the right strain for making edibles depends on the mood you’re in and the social situation you’re planning for. A simple question to ask is, “Daytime cookie or nighttime cookie?” Although weed impacts everyone differently, sativas give users energy and indicas are better for relaxation and sleep.
Want your cookies to make you want to get up and conquer the world? We suggest Sour Diesel, White Widow, Casey Jones, Golden Goat, or Lemon Skunk. But if you prefer something for you, your Netflix account, and a planned rendezvous with your bed, opt for strains like Bubba Kush, Granddaddy Purple, or White Fire Alien OG.
There’s a reason why marijuana is most commonly smoked rather than eaten. Without heating it up or burning it, raw weed is actually non-psychoactive, chock full of THCA, and actually considered a “superfood” by some, who note 400 different chemical compounds inside the plant, including vitamins, essential oils, and acids.
Thus, to begin the weed edible process, a chef must prepare the weed so the elements that make a person feel high are present in the pastry. As High Times noted, “If you want to get high, you’ll need to cook it, and you’ll need to do it right so you don’t waste it.”
The boiling temperature for THC is 314ºF, and heating your cannabis too much for too long will result in lowered potency. The process itself, however, is rather straightforward:
1. Preheat your oven to 240ºF. If you have an oven thermometer to gauge the oven’s true temperature, even better.
2. Break the leaf down into more manageable pieces and place on a cookie sheet as if toasting spices. Don’t overload the marijuana so pieces are on top of each other.
3. Put the sheet in the oven and monitor for 30-40 minutes (depending on oven strength and the strain of weed). You’re looking for a golden brown color as opposed to the more vibrant green of an untoasted leaf.
4. Take out of the oven and let the toasted marijuana cool. Then put the weed in a food processor and pulse it for a second so it is ground coarsely.
With a major step out of the way, it’s time to make “cannabutter,” infusing your active marijuana into a food perfect for baking: butter. While there are numerous methods for achieving this, some of which take up to eight hours, here is a wafer-simmered version that is both simple and heralded by The Cannabist as the best cannabutter in the US.
In a medium-sized saucepan, bring a quart of water to the boil on the stove. Once boiling, add your sticks of butter and allow them to melt completely. After that, add your marijuana and reduce the heat to simmer. The real key here is that the weed should always be floating about 1.5 to 2 inches from the bottom of the pan. The butter should cook at a low heat for three hours until the mixture starts to get thick at the top.
From there, you’re nearly finished. Take the mixture and place it in a bowl lined with cheesecloth. Then squeeze out the remaining liquid butter. After allowing the liquid butter to cool for an hour, put it in the fridge until it takes on the consistency and texture of a spread.
We swear we’re almost to the part where you can actually eat your weed edible.

🚀 How to Make Marijuana Cookies Step-by-Step
As I’ve already told you, making marijuana cookies is very simple and you don’t need more than 30 minutes to prepare them (depending on your cooking skills). But let’s get to the important thing, the steps to make marijuana cookies:
Step 1: In a saucepan, put the butter to melt and when it is ready, add the marijuana previously grinded and decarboxylated. Put it on a low flame so it doesn’t burn.
put the butter to melt
You may also find marijuana butter for sale in your favourite marijuana dispensary.
Step 2: When the butter is ready, or we have melted the purchased marijuana butter, strain it into a bowl.
we filter the mixture
Step 3: Add sugar and eggs and beat well. While stirring, add the flour. If you want and to avoid lumps, you can pass the blender for a moment. Once we have a compact dough left, it’s time to add the extra ingredients we talked about before (chocolate, some aroma, etc…)
Add sugar and eggs
Step 4: Cover the bowl with transparent paper and place it in the oven while it is heated to 140 degrees.

Step 5: Remove the baking tray from the oven, place the baking paper and start making small balls with the dough already cold. The next step is to crush those little balls you’ve made with the help of a roller. And, from here, you can do two things: put them directly into the oven or, using molds with shapes, to give your biscuits shape you like the most. It may sound very sappy, but if you’ve used marijuana desserts before which make you happy, the evening can be very, very funny.

Step 6: Whether or not you have made shapes, place them in the oven for about 15 minutes. You’ll know they’re made because they start to brown. Don’t leave them much longer, because they can harden a lot.

✅ How to Make Marijuana Cookies Without Oven
Actually, the recipe for cannabis cookies with or without oven, is not very different, although the flavor or the final result is not the same, the truth is that they are just as good. However, since we like to be able to give you a lot of ideas, let’s go with a slightly different recipe for oatmeal and chocolate marijuana cookies, for which you’ll need:
- One cup (it will serve as a meter)
- One cup of sugar (white)
- One cup of milk
- One cup of cannabis butter
- Four tablespoons of cocoa powder
- Half cup of peanut butter cream
- Three cups of instant oatmeal
- One coffee spoon with vanilla or cinnamon extract.

Of course, also the stuff we mentioned above for making cookies. And what are the next steps? Very easy; take notes:
Step 1: Mix the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan, and let the blend boiling for half a minute.

Step 2: After this time, remove the saucepan and add the peanut butter, oatmeal and the aroma we have chosen.

Step 3: From the mixture we’ve made, we make balls to place them on a tray with baking paper, so that it does not stain, for later let them cool and harden until they are to our liking, and ready to eat.

Step 3b: The flavor of the cookies without baking does not appeal to everyone, so you always have the option of putting them in the microwave, about 5 minutes, at medium power (this will vary depending on each microwave) to have the texture more like traditional homemade cookies.

📖 How to make vegan pot cookies
Of course! vegans also have the whole right to enjoy some delicious marijuana cookies, but, using other ingredients, so whether you are a vegan or not, we also offer you this rich and simple recipe for cannabis cookies to make at home.
You’ll need to prepare:
- 1 Glass of sugar
- ½ glass of almond milk
- 3 tablespoons soluble cocoa
- 140 ml of coconut oil with cannabis infusion (so that we can decarboxylate marijuana and benefit from its THC).
- 1 tablespoon of starch
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla, cinnamon or other natural flavor you like
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 50 g of brown or cane sugar

Step 1: while the oven is pre-heating to 200 degrees we make the infusion of the coconut oil and cannabis tea in a saucepan (not recommended to make it in the microwave)
the oven is pre-heating to 200 degrees
Step 2: Mix the sugar, milk, starch, water, the aroma we have chosen, and add the infusion over the mixture. Mix flour, yeast and cocoa in another bowl.
Mix the sugar, milk, starch, water
Step 3: When both masses are ready, pour the liquid one over the solid one and knead it with your hands. You could do it with a rod, but doing it this way you won’t pass the heat from your hands into the dough. When it’s mixed, you can add cocoa nuggets or any other nut you like. We allow the dough stand.

Step 4: In the meantime, take a baking tray, wrap it with baking paper and make balls with your hand or with the help of a soup spoon.
Step 5: When you are finished with the balls, place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

🎯 Things to consider before eating marijuana cookies
As you may know and as we have already mentioned in other recipes, smoking marijuana is not the same as eating it, so you should be much more cautious when using it. In the case of these cookies, and especially if you are not in the habit of eating them, we advise you not to eat more than 1 or 2 before you see the effect they will have on you. That the effect can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, so even if you feel like another one, you’d better wait. We want you to have fun!
Of course, and although we hate to mention it, you also know that cannabis and alcohol are not best friends, so even if you’re laughing with your colleagues, as much, you may take a glass of wine or one beer. But It would be better to avoid it, though the risk you take, is only up to you. Our responsibility is to give you the best recommendations.
