If you want to know how to make weed chocolate chip cookies, you’ve come to the right place. The short of it is that you need a box of your favorite cookie mix from your local grocery store and in place of butter or shortening, you’re going to use cannabutter. Making cannabutter or oil is key to how to make pot chocolate chip cookies. The resultant edible is sometimes called a space cookie, especially when it has very high THC levels, so dosing slowly is key to having an enjoyable experience. These marijuana cookies recipes are the best in the cannabis cookbook. Making chocolate chip cookies with cannabutter is an easy bake and you can add extra sugar, peanuts, or coconut oil to hash out your special cookies according to your own taste.
Best Weed Cookie Recipe Strains
The strain of marijuana you choose will depend on the following things: 1. The effect you want from your edibles, psychoactive or anti-inflammatory. 2. THC / CBD Content, and 3. Flavor. You can browse marijuana strains on our site here: https://leaf.expert/strain
Depending on the intended use of your cookie, you may choose a strain with high or low THC, or high or low CBD. Choose a high CBD strain with little or no THC to treat kids who benefit from medical hemp products to reduce childhood seizures, pain, or ADD and ADHD symptoms. Choose a high THC Indica like Wedding Cake strain in order to relax with friends after a long day of work.
How to Dose Appropriately
It’s important to be careful with dosing your cookies to get the proper amount of THC. Overdosing on edibles is a frequent occurrence and people have sometimes called on police and medical resources during the panic caused by overdosing on weed edibles. Most of the time, the episode passes without major damage. So, dosing your bud cookies appropriately is of utmost importance.
Most bud varieties will average about 10 percent THC, although the medical strains on this site frequently come with about twice as much THC due to careful breeding and selection. One gram of marijuana is one thousand mg, ten percent of that is one hundred mg, meaning, each gram has one hundred mg of THC. A reasonable cookie dose of THC is five milligrams. Say you use three grams, that’s 300 milligrams of THC. Divide that into 60 cookies, and you have five milligrams per cookie. Start off with one or one-half cookies. Wait up to 2 hours to test your tolerance.
Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup of water
- 2 bars of butter (unsalted)
- 3 grams of weed (ground to coarse grain, but not a fine powder)
For detailed instructions on how to make cannabutter, see our page here: https://leaf.expert/english/information-for-patients/cannabutter-oil-recipe
First, you will need to decarboxylate your weed. Detailed instructions on decarboxylation can be found on our site. Basically, you are going to preheat your oven to a temperature of about 240 degrees Fahrenheit and bake your 3 grams of bud for 30 minutes to an hour. This temp will concentrate your cannabinoids and convert THCA to the action from THC (and CBDA to CBD).
Now, take your water and butter and place it in a skillet on the stove, melt the butter in a low-temperature setting and add in your weed. Allow simmering just below a boil for up to 3 hours. This will extract the THC out of the weed and into the butter, as cannabinoids are fat-soluble. The water is just to prevent burning. Now, you want to strain out the plant material with cheesecloth or a mesh filter. Now, you have your canna oil. For this easy pot cookie recipe, you can use the cannabutter as is, you can evaporate out some of the water, or put it in the refrigerator for hardening, and then pour out the water.
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- The ½ cup of cannabutter
- 1 1/3 cup of chocolate chips
- 1.3 cups of flour
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup of brown sugar
- 2 mixing bowls
- Baking sheet
- Mix the baking soda, flour, and salt and set aside.
- Mix together the sugar and cannabutter.
- Mix in egg and vanilla and blend together.
- Mix in chocolate chips.
- Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt and make a dough by stirring with a spoon.
- Makeup 60 cookies, 5 mg per cookie (or 30 cookies 10 mg, 15 cookies 20 mg THC). If you make 15 cookies, be sure to take the only ¼ of a cookie for your first dose.
- Bake at 325 to 375 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and enjoy carefully. Have a small piece, wait an hour or two for effects.
Weed Sugar Cookie with Dried Weed
Some people prefer a sugar cookie as a simpler and faster method. They want the high-quality weed flower inside the cookie for taste and therapeutic power. Any novice can make these. Here’s what you need:
- Dash of salt
- 1/3 ounce of high quality, dry flower
- 200 grams white sugar
- 300 grams of butter
- 2 eggs
- 500 grams of flour
- 3 grams of weed (high quality, food-grade bud, no stems or seeds)
- 3 tablespoons of vanilla extract
- Baking tray
- 2 bowls
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Baking tray
- Grease baking sheet, preheat oven to 325 Fahrenheit.
- Mix butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add in eggs.
- Mix in high quality, dried weed.
- Gradually add in flour and mix into a dough.
- Make 30 cookies, (10 mg of THC each)
- Bake 10 to 20 minutes till browned on the edges. Remove from heat, add icing, or sprinkles and enjoy. Begin with just half or ¼ of a cookie.
These types of cookies will contain the full chopped buds, providing more phytonutrients and fiber than in the previous recipe. However, since the weed is not pre-decarboxylated, this recipe may have unpredictable levels of THC which may be lower or higher than if it had been extracted after decarboxylation. Some users prefer to get more medical benefits and fewer psychoactive effects, so they like this recipe.

Enjoy your cannabis cookies. For cookies that keep longer unrefrigerated, do not use eggs or dairy. You will get a longer-lasting, harder cookie. The recipes presented use 3 grams of marijuana which average 10 percent THC and therefore 300 mg of THC. In order to dose cookies which use a strain that has two or three times more THC, you will have to divide your bake into more cookies, and your cookies into more pieces. A very strong pot cookie brought from a dispensary can have from 200 mg to 1000 mg of THC, not meant to be consumed in one session.
What To Do If You Overdo It
Overdosing on edibles happens frequently due to inexperienced users indulging their sweet tooth with pot edibles. If you overdo it, the important thing is to remain as calm as possible. Overdoing it is rarely dangerous and not known to have ever been fatal. There is no single antidote for pot overuse. Some users swear by munching on or smelling black peppercorns to immediately get rid of the anxiety caused by massive doses of THC. The peppercorns may work by antagonizing the cannabinoids overstimulating the cannabinoid receptor. Others claim that the best thing to do is to have some CBD handy and take up to 15 mg of CBD. CBD will displace the THC from the cannabinoid receptor without causing any stimulation or anxiety. This will cause relaxation and the panic from high levels of THC will dissolve into comfort and sleep. Chamomile tea has also been used to counteract the anxiety produced from a large dose of THC.
The major benefit of eating weed cookies is that it saves the lungs from having to inhale the smoke. Marijuana smoke has not yet proven to be harmful to the lungs, but from extrapolation, any kind of combustion of plant products appears to be irritating to the lungs. Weed has not shown clear harm because its phytonutrients may produce an anti-inflammatory effect that cleans up any damage it may have caused. However, especially for those who have some allergic reaction to the plant ingredients, it’s best to use a different means of ingesting, such as vaping or eating. Eating your weed in a concentrated cookie has the added benefit that you can put a lot of THC in a small cookie. Therefore, you will not have to consume a large number of calories. Weed has shown some promise as a thermogenic to burn fat, so you may get some benefits when it comes to weight loss.
Eating your weed also provides stronger pain relief over a longer period of time than smoked weed. The liver converts cannabinoids which have been consumed through eating into even more powerful cannabinoid substances. This provides a stronger and longer-lasting effect than smoked marijuana. Used for pain relief and relaxation, this would be a much welcome change. Chronic pain such as in fibromyalgia can be treated over a longer block of time with less need to re-dose in a given time frame. When the bud itself is included, this can add fiber and other plant nutrients to the diet. Weed also has a very distinctive taste, aroma, and flavor which goes well with many dishes.
