This is the very best recipe for easy, simple, delicious Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies made using cannabis-infused coconut oil, cannabutter, or cannabis sugar. No fancy ingredients, just a crispy, chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth medicated cookie ready in just 30-minutes.

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing better than biting into that first warm, gooey, perfectly crispy on the outside, doughy on the inside chocolate chip cookie – unless it’s a medicated cookie?

Now, it is true. You can use any traditional cookie recipe you have to make a cannabis-infused cookie.

Swap the fat called for, like butter or oil, cannabis butter or cannabis oil, and voila – you have an infused cookie!

But if you’re looking for THE perfect cannabis chocolate chip cookie recipe that has been made specifically with cannabis-infused butter or oil – this is it!

Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil or CannaButter

Making cannabis cookies

You can’t make weed chocolate chip cookies without THE staple recipe important for every cannabis kitchen: cannabis-infused 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, as the extraction process involves cannabis decarboxylation and takes approximately 4-hours.

Once you have your cannabis oil or butter ready, you can go ahead and prepare these chocolate chip cookies or use them in any other of our delicious cannabis-infused recipes like these mouthwatering cannabis peanut butter cookies and classic cannabis brownies.

Cookies Made With Cannabis Sugar

You can also make these cannabis chocolate chip cookies with cannabis-infused sugar if you have some on hand.

It is entirely up to you whether or not you want to use infused oil or infused sugar.

Additionally, you could use both infused oil or butter and infused sugar together for an extra potent batch of medicated cookies.

Before Consuming Cannabis Edibles

Now, if you have never consumed cannabis edibles before, there are some important things I want you to know first.

Friends don’t let friends jump into edibles without a little first-hand knowledge of what to expect!

Because it’s true, cannabis edibles CAN totally mess you up if you’re not prepared.

Before jumping into eating an entire batch of weed cookies, I want you to remember:

Edibles Can Be Very Potent

Edibles become more potent when enzymes in the liver hydroxylate Δ9-THC to form 11-hydroxytetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-THC), a potent psychoactive metabolite that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and causes potential hallucinations!

Edibles Have A Delayed Onset

Edibles have an approximate delayed onset time of 30-minutes to several hours and can have a prolonged duration of effects lasting 6-12 hours, so don’t reach for that second helping so quickly.

When it comes to cannabis edibles, start low and go SLOW! Of course, your experience will be entirely dependent on your own endocannabinoid system.

It’s Difficult To Know Final Potency of Homemade Edibles

It can be difficult to know what dose you’re starting with when consuming homemade edibles, so start small. There’s a reason they say “get ready for the ride” when you consume cannabis edibles.

Edibles can be a wonderful, fun, enjoyable ride when you go in prepared with a little bit of education and know what to expect!

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies Diet Options

As a certified Holistic Cannabis Practitioner and registered dietitian nutritionist, I work with my students to use nutrition and cannabis to improve their health and wellness.

Many of my clients need to make some adjustments to create their own unique autoimmune diet, and that includes removing certain food groups at times.

Below you will find options for gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, and grain-free cookies, as well as cannabis cookies that can be made with CBD oil.

Gluten-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almost all of the recipes here on my blog and in my cookbooks are gluten-free, so I’ve had a lot of time experimenting with gluten-free flour alternatives.

Thankfully for the sake of baking, there are so many great gluten-free flour alternatives on the market today that swap pretty well for traditional all-purpose flour.

You can easily grab a gluten-free all-purpose flour at most grocery stores.

Dairy-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make delicious dairy-free cannabis chocolate chip cookies you want to make sure you do two things:

  1. Use cannabis-infused coconut oil instead of cannabutter.
  2. Verify your chocolate chips are dairy-free.

Paleo or Grain-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

Most of my cookbooks are not only gluten-free, but completely grain-free to be Paleo compliant as well.

It is easy to make a grain-free cannabis chocolate chip cookie by swapping cassava flour for traditional all-purpose flour.

However, it is important to remember that if you are using cassava flour, you will need to add an extra egg (for a total of 2) to get the right consistency for the dough.

CBD Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

Of course, it is not always easy to get your hands on cannabis flower to make your own infused coconut oil, which is why we wanted to offer a way to make this recipe with CBD oil or CBD concentrate.

We recommend using the CBD concentrate for stronger cookies, which packs in 500mg of CBD in just 1mL volume.

Because this is such a small amount, you can use the recipe as is and just add this to the mixture when you add the eggs and vanilla.

For cookies that are not as strong, you can use a traditional CBD oil. Simply subtract the amount you are adding from the total fat content.

For example, if you are adding 1 tablespoon of CBD oil, subtract 1 tablespoon of oil or butter from your total amount.


  • 1¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup cannabis-infused sugar*
  • ½ cup cannabutter or cannabis coconut oil
  • 1 farm-fresh egg, beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips of choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, using a hand beater, cream together the sugar and oil or butter until it is light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while continuing to mix.
  6. When the dough is formed, gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Create 1 tablespoon dough balls and place them evenly spread on a baking sheet. Gently flatten the dough balls with your hands.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool 1-2 minutes before removing from the tray and transferring to a cooling rack.
  10. Enjoy!


*If you do not have cannabis sugar, simply substitute a mix of half brown sugar, half white sugar (or try coconut sugar for a delicious twist!).

3 thoughts on “Making cannabis cookies”

  1. I’ve never baked cannabis cookies before, however, most regular chocolate chip recipes require the dough to sit in the fridge for a minimum of an hour. Sorry but I have a lot of questions. If I follow this step will it affect the texture and taste of my cookies ? Can I use raisins instead of chocolate chips? Can you use 1 cup of cannabutter instead of doing regular butter?

    1. You don’t need to do that for this recipe, but you certainly CAN refrigerate the dough before baking. It will not impact texture, taste or strength of your cookies. Hope it helps!

  2. Edibles eaten on a full stomach will delay their affect for a disproportionately long time. I once ate dinner with friends then we all ate canna cookies and went to a review type concert. We drove about 30 minutes to the concert but then came on to the cookies for only the last two musical numbers. It was a drag! We thought that by the time we came home the high would be fairly worn off but we were just coming on (3 to 4 hours after eating the cookies). I ate the same cookies at a later date, on an empty stomach, and came on in a little over 30 minutes. I definitely recommend eating edibles on an empty or fairly empty stomach.
