How to Make a Potent Cannabis Salt for Seasoning Your Favorite Foods!

Are you bored of ye ole cannabis butter and infused honey cannabis infusions for all your recipes? We hear ya. Give this simple cannabis salt mixture a nibble. There’s no end to the possibilities and a fantastic way to micro-dose with cooking cannabis salt.

Best part, it can be added to your favorite cocktails! Mango margarita with a Frosted Lime Kush Salt rim perhaps?

We consider this one of our basic recipes and we classify it as a tincture.

Why?

It uses a cannabis tincture as it’s base infusion technique. We evaporate it off the liquid leaving the therapeutic crystals on the salt.

It’s such a versatile way to enhance your every day sea salt into a bang of flavor and cannabinoid health benefits.

What are Some Cannabis Salt Benefits?

Cannasalt, like other edibles, has many benefits. For those of you utilizing cannabis for medicinal benefits, it’s a discrete and simple way to reap the power of the plant. It is readily available and has a longer expiration date than cannabis-infused butter. Some other benefits are:

  • Dosing is a cinch – With a little bit of experimenting, you can work out your specific dosage. This makes it easier to control when you are not at home and need some therapeutic benefits. Since most recipes call for a “touch of” salt, we set up a microdose of around 1 tsp at 2.5 to 8mg potency. Check out our potency calculator to help.
  • Simple to store – Store it like… well salt! The shelf live of cannasalt is extremely long and it doesn’t break down as easily when exposed to light or air. We suggest six months and maybe a year. Really, as long as you dry and store it correctly, the only worry is the degradation of the cannabinoids and terpenes.
  • It is versatile – Like ordinary salt, cannasalt can be added to anything. It’s salt, y’all. When have you decided, “no, this recipe doesn’t need a pinch of salt?” There is a lighter cannabis taste to this approach (and depends on the strain you choose). Therefore, it can be used as a substitute in any recipe you like.
  • Nice and discrete – Cannasalt looks just like regular salt that makes it perfect for carrying along when you have commitments and events to attend. If you need to microdose, weed salt comes in very handy.

A Few Important Notes:

  • Dealing with alcohol and heat – just be careful! Don’t risk burning the house down as alcohol vapors are extremely dangerous. We prefer to leave the salt and tincture mixture spread out on a baking dish over night. We have no scientific research here, but we notice a difference in liquid and odor. Alcohol has way of evaporating off over time. Makes it a bit safer.
  • Don’t burn the salt – if it get’s too brown during the baking time, you may lose some potency in your cannabinoids.
  • Use course salt – we prefer course salt to help minimize the salt dissolving. Wanna be fancy? Some pink Himalayan salt is what all the cool kids are using these days.
