1. 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.
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.
2. 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.
3. Cookies Made with FECO or Concentrates and Extracts
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 ½ cup of butter as called for in this recipe.
Then prepare the recipe as described in the instructions below.
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 these 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).
This is a potent psychoactive metabolite that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and causes potential hallucinations.
As with all things cannabis, it is important to start low and go slow.
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, please, 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!
Diet Options for Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
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.
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.
This is the all-purpose gluten-free flour we recommend for gluten-free baking, you can easily order it online and have it delivered directly to your home.
Dairy-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
To make delicious dairy-free cannabis chocolate chip cookies you want to make sure you do two things:
This is the dairy-free chocolate chip brand we recommend for dairy-free baking; you can easily order them online or find them in your local grocery store.
CBD Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
Of course, not everyone wants THC in their food.
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 and add this to the mixture when you add the eggs and vanilla.
For cookies that are not as strong, you can use traditional CBD oil.
Simply subtract the volume amount you are adding from the total fat volume called for.
For example, if you are adding 1 tablespoon of CBD oil, subtract 1 tablespoon of oil or butter from the total amount of ½ cup.

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 375° F. Prepare two foil-lined baking sheets and set them aside.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt. Set this bowl aside.
- In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar.
- Using a hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
- Add the egg and vanilla to the creamed ingredients and beat well with the mixer.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while continuing to mix. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated and a dough is formed.
- When the dough is formed, gently fold in the chocolate chips.
- Create 1 tablespoon-sized dough balls and place them evenly apart, approximately 2", on the reserved foil-lined baking sheets. Gently flatten the dough balls with your hands or the back of a spoon.
- Bake in the oven for 9 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes before removing from the baking sheet and transferring to a cooling rack.
