Cookies are the perfect snack for any occasion. Whether you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or need a little pick-me-up, cookies have got you covered. But what about weed cookies? Weed is more popular than ever and has been used in baking since the dawn of time (give or take). This article will explore weed cookies-their benefits, their history, and how to make them yourself!
Making sure to decarboxylate your flower is the most important step in any weedy baking project — if you’re hoping to get high, that is. Whether you use a specialized device or an everyday sheet pan, baking crumbled weed in an oven set to 200°F will convert non-intoxicating THCA into the THC we all know and love so much. Skip this step and your cookies might leave you with some warm, fuzzy feelings, but they’re unlikely to produce the full-body high you’d expect from an edible.
Some of the benefits you can get from weed-infused cookies are they’re good for combating nausea and it also has a calming effect. The high is different than smoking marijuana because it’s more slow-paced, but lasts longer. It will leave your stomach feeling less queasy and help people who have anxiety or depression as well. Weed cookies have been around since ancient times in various cultures like India where eating crushed cannabis was common to improve appetite during illness or hunger at other times. In China, some versions were invented over 3000 years ago!
The next most important step is to dose your edibles properly. Knowing how strong your cookies will be starts with knowing how strong your flower is, so make sure to check the lab results of your herb. Calculating the precise dose in each cookie will require some math, but air on the side of caution and choose a high-CBD flower for your cannabutter if you’re nervous about overdoing it.
On the topic of cannabutter, there are a few different ways to make it. Whether you go the traditional stovetop method or would prefer to simmer your butter in a slow cooker, there’s a route for everyone. To make your own, check out our comprehensive guide to cannabutter.
Cannabis-infused butter can be used as a base for any number of edibles, but there’s one recipe in particular that we like – weed cookies! These potent treats are quick and easy to make with just four ingredients. Once you’ve got your cannabutter made, all it takes is some sugar, flour, and vanilla extract before baking the dough into delicious pot brownies (or whatever shape you prefer). Get ready to get high without burning out on these sensational sweets.
The best way to come up with recipes is by experimenting. Try different ratios of flower varieties or THC/CBD content until you find something that works well for your needs.
To preserve the cannabinoids in your baked goods, try to keep the oven temperature relatively low. Keep the temperature at or below 350°F if you can and skip recipes that won’t work without a high cooking temperature.
You can add cannabutter to any recipe to make it infused, but to make it taste good, you’ll want to pair that weedy butter with some strong flavors. Gingerbread and other heavily spiced cookies can be strong as you like with almost no lingering flavor of weed. Chocolate is another favorite for its strong, earthy flavor that can actually complement herbal notes.
What you’ll need
Making weed-infused cookies is as simple as swapping out all or part of the regular butter in a recipe with cannabutter. To make it even easier on yourself, use a boxed cookie mix. At a minimum, you will need:
2 sticks of butter (more if you want to do a mix of regular butter and cannabutter)
- Boxed cookie mix
- Mixing bowl
- Cookie sheet pan
- Small saucepan
How to make pot cookies
Start by mixing the butter and ground weed in a bowl. If you are using cannabutter, start with two sticks of it instead of three because it is already seasoned with cannabis.
Heat up your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit while stirring every so often for about 15 minutes or until all ingredients are fully mixed and softened.
Then mix together eggs, sugar, vanilla extract into one small pot on the stovetop over medium heat before adding them to the mixture in the bowl. Finally add dry cookie dough (don’t forget any additional flavorings) stir again and push everything out onto your baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper so that there’s space between each cookie as they bake!
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 ahrenheit.
