Introduction to Baking with Cannabis

If you want to learn how to bake with cannabis, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about baking with cannabis, from choosing the right strain to decarboxylating your weed. Baking with cannabis is a great way to make edibles, and it’s also a fun and challenging way to cook with weed.

The Decarboxylation Process

In order for cannabis to be effective when ingested, it must first go through a process called decarboxylation, or “decarbing.” This process activates the THC in the plant material and makes it easier for your body to absorb.

You can decarb cannabis in a few different ways, but the most common is to bake it in the oven. The general rule of thumb is to bake cannabis at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes. This should give you plenty of time to decarb your cannabis without burning it.

Once your cannabis is decarbed, you can use it in any recipe that calls for butter or oil. Just be sure to use a low heat so that you don’t burn off all of the THC.

The Benefits of Baking with Cannabis

There are many benefits to baking with cannabis. For one, it allows you to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without having to smoke it. Additionally, when cannabis is ingested orally, the effects can be much more potent and long-lasting. Finally, baking with cannabis is a great way to create your own edibles with your favorite flavors.

Here are some tips on how to get started:

1. Decide what type of cake or baked good you want to make.
2. Choose a recipe or create your own.
3. Substitute cannabutter or cannabis oil for the regular butter or oil called for in the recipe.
4. Be sure to bake your goods at a low temperature (no more than 250 degrees Fahrenheit) to avoid damaging the THC.
5. Start with a small piece, as the effects of edibles can sometimes be delayed by up to an hour.
6. Enjoy!


Here are some recipes for baking with cannabis. These recipes have been created with the beginner baker in mind. They are simple, straightforward, and use common ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen.


Cannabutter is butter that has been melted and mixed with extracted thc glands from cannabis plants. It is the primary ingredient in many edibles.
You can make cannabutter using a simple Crock Pot, some butter, water, and weed. The cannabutter will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

1 pound (4 sticks) of butter
1 cup of water
1 ounce of cannabis flower or trim (about 28 grams)
1. Grind your cannabis into small pieces using a grinder. If you are using flower, remove any large stems. If you are using trim, there is no need to remove the leaves as they will fall off during cooking.
2. Add the butter and water to the Crock Pot and set it to low heat (between 200-250 degrees Fahrenheit).
3. Add the ground cannabis and stir well to ensure that all of the plant material is submerged.
4. Place the lid on the Crock Pot and let it cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
5. After 6-8 hours, remove the lid and use a cheesecloth or coffee filter to strain out the plant material from the buttery liquid. Be sure to squeeze all of the liquid from the plant material before discarding it.
6. Pour the strained liquid into a bowl or container and place it in the fridge overnight so that it can solidify into cannabutter

Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil

-1/8 ounce (3.5 grams) trimmed cannabis, ground
-1 cup (240 ml) olive oil
-1/4 teaspoon Jill McKeever’s secret ingredient

1. Preheat your oven to 245°F (118°C). If you don’t have an oven that goes that low, set it to the lowest setting and prop the door open with a wooden spoon.
2. Place the ground cannabis in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. This will decarboxylate the cannabis, making the THC more potent.
3. In a crockpot or double boiler, heat the olive oil on low heat until it reaches 245°F (118°C).
4. Add the decarboxylated cannabis and secret ingredient. Turn off the heat and let infuse for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
5. Strain the oil through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into a glass jar or bottle. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months


Cannaflour is simply cannabis flour. You can make it at home by grinding dried cannabis buds in a coffee grinder or food processor. Be sure to clean your grinder or processor thoroughly afterwards to avoid any accidental ingestion of cannabis!

Cannaflour can be used in any recipe that calls for flour, such as cakes, cookies, breads, and so on. Keep in mind that since cannaflour is made from cannabis, it will have psychoactive effects. Start with a small amount and increase as needed according to your desired level of intoxication.

Baked Goods

Baking with cannabis is a great way to infuse your edibles with THC. The process is relatively simple and only requires a few ingredients. The key to baking with cannabis is to decarboxylate your weed before you start. This will ensure that your edibles are potent and will get you high.


Brownies are a classic cannabis-infused treat that are perfect for sharing. Of all the baked goods, brownies are probably the most popular, and for good reason – they’re easy to make and they’re delicious! Here is a simple recipe for cannabis-infused brownies that will have you feeling nice and relaxed in no time.

-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
-1 cup granulated sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
-1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-1/4 cup cannabutter, melted and cooled

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk until well combined. Repeat with the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Pour the cannabutter over the top of the batter and use a knife to swirl it around. Be careful not to over mix – you just want to swirl it lightly so that there are streaks of cannabutter throughout the batter. 95;f you over mix, your brownies will be less fudgy. 3P 4our88 t5he batt96er68into9t5he prep7a6red pa5n0an7d bak8e f75o29r abou67t 31328 minutes5 or unti17l 9a tooth35pick inse79rted i85n51to46the ce43nter com26es o24ut w55it60h57 mo64ist59ure72 bu78t no77 lo71on79ger atta74ch81ed89to6the92 edges8of118the113ba95tter..

Cannabis-infused cookies are a popular choice for those looking to medicate with cannabis. They are easy to make and can be eaten in public without raising too many eyebrows. Just be sure to keep them out of reach of children and animals, as they will not understand that they are not regular cookies.

There are a few things to keep in mind when baking cookies with cannabis. The first is that you need to use a fat or oil to bind the THC to the cookie. Butter, lard, coconut oil, and canna-butter are all good options. The second is that you need to bake the cookies long enough for the THC to decarboxylate, which means converting it from its raw, acidic form into its more potent psychoactive form. This process happens when the cannabis is heated for a period of time at a temperature between 220-235 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once you have these two things figured out, the rest is up to you! You can use any recipe for regular cookies that you like, or you can experiment with different flavors and ingredients to create your own special cannabis-infused treat. Just be sure to dose carefully, as it can be easy to overdo it with these tasty morsels.


Cannabis-infused cakes are a popular choice for those who enjoy the taste of marijuana but don’t want to smoke it. There are a variety of recipes available, but they all follow a similar process.

To make a cannabis cake, you will need:

-1/2 cup cannabutter
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, cream the cannabutter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Mix each addition just until incorporated.
