Ingredient Notes

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour: white, all-purpose, AP flour works best in this recipe
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda: don’t confuse this for baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt: kosher salt or table salt works
  • ½ cup cannabutter: Buy my Bliss Cannabutter or make your own. This should be softened to room temperature for the best results.
  • ¾ cup sugar: I use white sugar, but you could substitute cannasugar or dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg: for consistency
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract: for taste
  • 1 cup optional toppings: This cookie batter is a blank canvas. Add chocolate chips, M&M’s, sea salt, or even your favorite healthy ingredients, like nuts. 

Note: a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions is located in the recipe card below.

Dosing & Potency

Dosing this recipe couldn’t be easier if you use my Bliss Cannabutter.

You can use the printable chart below to determine the exact amount of butter to use to get your desired THC milligrams per batch or cookie. 

If you are not using Bliss Cannabutter, my edible dosage calculator is another great way to determine your cookies’ potency.

If you are unsure where to start, check out my safe dosing guide before getting started.

The Step-by-Step Process

  • Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set them aside. A greased baking sheet will work, too.
  • Step 2 – Whisk the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Set this aside.
  • Step 3 – In another large bowl, cream the butter and sugar with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Step 4 – Add the egg and vanilla to the creamed butter bowl.

  • Step 8 – Fold in the chocolate chips when the dough has formed.

  • Step 10 – Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes or until they are perfectly golden brown. See baking notes below.

Storage Instructions

These cannabis chocolate chip cookies have the same shelf life as other cookies.

Store them at room temperature for up to seven days. Freeze after seven days to prevent spoilage.

Additionally, storing these cookies in an air-tight container with a slice of bread will keep them soft and moist.

Alternate Infusion Options

As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something.

Below we will explore how you could infuse these powerful little treats with your favorite secret ingredient.

  • Cannabis sugar: You can make these cookies with cannabis sugar if you have some. Simply swap the infused sugar for white sugar. 
  • Both: You could use infused oil or butter and infused sugar for an extra potent batch of cookies.
  • Concentrates and extracts: Easily make these cookies with concentrates like distillate or FECO. Just be sure to check if your concentrate needs to be decarbed first. Then, simply mix the concentrate with ½ cup of normal butter or organic coconut oil, and then prepare the recipe according to the instructions below with your butter mixture.
  • Tincture: if you want to use an alcohol tincture in this recipe, be sure to evaporate the alcohol and make FECO first.
  • Decarbed Flower: You can add decarbed flower or decarbed kief right into the flour mixture. Just be mindful of adding the right dose for you, especially if you are not a regular consumer of edibles.

Notes and Expert Tips

  • Baking note: All ovens bake at different temperatures, and 9 minutes is the average baking time. Some ovens will bake quicker, so check your cookies for your desired doneness between 7-10 minutes. Bake time will also depend on the size of your dough balls. Small balls will bake faster than larger ones. Adjust accordingly to find your perfect texture.
  • Edibles can be potent: If you have never had edibles before, it is essential to note that they will likely affect you differently than smokingtinctures, lotions, or other methods. Your experience may also differ if you use an Indica or Sativa strain.
  • Edibles have a delayed onset: Edibles take 30 minutes to several hours to hit and can last 6-12 hours, so don’t reach for that second helping so quickly! You want to make sure your high time is a good time 🙂 If you accidentally get too high, check out these solutions here.
  • Be safe: When it comes to cannabis edibles, please, start low and go SLOW! Your experience will be entirely dependent on your own endocannabinoid system.
  • Be prepared: Learn how to easily make the staple recipes needed to infuse this recipe, like cannabutter and cannabis sugar, with my Cannabis Cookbook.
  • Gift mindfully: these great-tasting cookies make great gifts for a holiday party or special occasion. Just be mindful of the amount of THC you add to your edible recipes if you give them away.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make CBD chocolate chip cookies?

Yes, check out my guide for making CBD chocolate chip cookies here.

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

So many great gluten-free flour alternatives swap pretty well for traditional all-purpose flour. You can grab gluten-free all-purpose flour at most grocery stores. This is the I recommend for gluten-free baking.

Can I make this recipe dairy-free?

Yes! To make delicious dairy-free cannabis chocolate chip cookies, you want to make sure you do two things: 1. Use cannabis coconut oil instead of cannabutter 2. Verify your chocolate chips are dairy-free. This is the dairy-free chocolate chip brand I recommend for dairy-free baking.

Can I add other natural flavorings?

Yes, this dough is similar to sugar cookies, making it easy to customize these sweet treats. Just add a small amount if you’re adding an extract like vanilla, lemon, mint, or almond extract, as the natural and artificial flavors can be overwhelming.

How to calculate the mg of THC in each cookie?

If you’re using cannabutter, your first step will be to know how much THC is in your batch of cannabutter. Use my popular edible dosage calculator if you need help with this. If this is your first time, know that you will need to know how much cannabis you added in weight and how potent it is in percent.

How can I manage the munchies?

Edibles can give you the munchies, which may not always be a good thing. Cannabis can help with weight loss, but only in the right circumstances. Check out these healthy cannabis recipes if you need something different!

  1. 5 stars
    First time ever cooking with cannabis and these cookies turned out amazing! Better than ‘regular’ cookies I’ve baked.
    I made these for my partner to assist with his multiple sclerosis, he loves them, they do the trick to calm his nerves and allow him a restful night.
    Trying the peanut butter cookies now !

    We made our own Cannabutter for these cookies

  2. Hi Katrina. It’s fantastic to hear that your cookies turned out so well and are even better than your ‘regular’ cookies. It’s heartwarming to know that they brought relief and relaxation to your partner with multiple sclerosis. I hope your peanut butter cookies are just as good! Happy baking!

  3. Hi there,
    can i still cook these cookies at a lower temp say 170C (338F) as i’ve read that higher temps can result in loss of cannabinoids?
    do you know if that is a concern at all or are we talking minuscule losses anyway?
    Regards,
    Josh

  4. Hi Josh, thanks for your thoughtful question. Yes, you’re correct in noting that higher temperatures can lead to the degradation of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. However, it’s important to understand that this doesn’t mean all cannabinoids instantly evaporate or degrade once these temperatures are reached. It’s a gradual process, so cooking at a slightly higher temperature for a short period of time won’t result in significant losses. Also, remember that the internal temperature of your cookies will be lower than the oven temperature and will take time to rise, further reducing potential cannabinoid loss. For a more detailed explanation on cooking temperatures and their effects on cannabinoids, check out this great resource: Temperature to Bake Edibles. Happy baking, and please reach out if you have any other questions!
