There’s probably no simpler recipe than marijuana cookies, which you can use for a fun afternoon or, why not, start on a Saturday or Sunday in the best possible way. Do you dare to prepare them? We tell you how to do it!
30 minutes. That’s how long it can take you to make a nice, simple pot cookie. Yeah, that’s what you’ve read. Then, of course, it will be necessary to put them in the oven or let the dough rest so that they are finished, but, in itself, to prepare the dough, it won’t take you much longer. You got it? I’m sure you do. And, think about it, after that, you’ll have a lot of time to enjoy its taste and effect.
In fact, the recipe for marijuana cookies is a great idea in order to be the best host, without having to spend all day working. Good plan, isn’t it?
That’s why I propose today to make marijuana cookies together to which you can then add all the ingredients you want to give them a different touch, have varied flavors or adapt it to your taste and that of your guests.
In addition, I also want to introduce you a way to make these cookies, but with a vegan recipe, because everyone, regardless of how they usually eat, are entitled to enjoy this delight.?
You can also make cannabis edibles with cannabis concentrates like FECO.
First, check to see if your concentrate needs to be decarbed before consuming.
Some concentrates and extracts like distillate and FECO do not need to be decarbed first, while other concentrates like wax and shatter do need to be decarbed before using in edibles.
If you are unsure, you can checkout our guide to decarbing cannabis concentrates here.
Once the concentrate is ready to go, you will simply mix it in with the 1/2 cup of butter as called for in this recipe.
Then prepare the recipe as described in the instructions below.
You can’t make cannabis chocolate chip cookies without the staple recipe important for every cannabis kitchen: cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter.
Used interchangeably, infusing oil or butter with cannabis is an easy way to extract a broad-spectrum of compounds like CBD or THC from the cannabis plant and get them into the food you are eating.
You will want to make sure you have this recipe prepared BEFORE diving into making your own cannabis-infused chocolate chip cookies.
The process involves cannabis decarboxylation and then oil infusion and takes approximately 5-hours.
Once you have your cannabis oil or butter ready, you can go ahead and prepare these chocolate chip cookies.
You can also use them in any other of our delicious cannabis-infused recipes like these mouthwatering cannabis peanut butter cookies and classic cannabis brownies.
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.
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.
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.
