What You’ll Need

A white countertop with the ingredients needed to make cannabis peanut butter
  • 3 cups unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts: Using whole peanuts is essential for making your own peanut butter at home. However, if you want to buy pre-made peanut butter and infuse it, you totally can. I recommend natural peanut butter with minimal, organic ingredients.
  • ¼ cup cannabis oil: This ingredient will infuse the recipe. Find all of the different types of cannabis oil you can use in the alternative infusion options section below.
  • ¼ gram kief or concentrate, optional: A concentrated version of cannabis can increase the potency if desired

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prepare your cannabis oil or purchase my Bliss MCT Oil. See oil infusion options below.
  2. Add the peanuts to a food processor or blender. Pulse at 30-second intervals for several minutes until the ground peanuts become smooth.
  3. As the peanut butter becomes smooth, add the cannabis oil and kief or concentrate, if using, and pulse again at 30-second intervals until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Store in a glass jar and label as desired. Stir well before enjoying.

Storage Instructions

You can store this peanut butter in the refrigerator for 2-4 weeks.

Alternate Infusion Options

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

Below, we will explore how to infuse this recipe with your favorite active ingredients.

Infused Oil

Many types of cannabis-infused oils will work in this recipe.

Liquid oil, such as MCT oil or even infused peanut oil, will work best.

Just keep the taste of the oil in mind; a tablespoon of olive oil will lend a noticeable taste to your final product that you may not like.

Like coconut oil or cannabutter, solid oil is not ideal for this recipe as it hardens at room temperature.

Kief

Adding a small amount of decarbed cannabis or kief to your peanut butter is an easy way to increase the potency.

Note that you leave the flower in the peanut butter, so keep your taste and texture preferences in mind.

Cannabis Concentrates

Concentrates are perfect for infusing this edible recipe. 

No matter which type of concentrate you have, first check to see if it needs to be decarbed. Cannabis distillate and FECO do not need to be decarbed first.

Once ready, you can mix the concentrate with a small bit of oil before blending in with the peanuts.

Cannabis Tinctures

The only way alcohol-based cannabis tinctures will work in this recipe is to evaporate off all of the alcohol first.

From there, you can create FECO, which can then be used as a cannabis concentrate, as outlined above.

Notes and Expert Tips

  • Don’t forget the important step of cannabis decarboxylation before adding any flower or kief to the peanut butter.
  • Take your own personal tolerance into consideration. You may only need a little bit of cannabis to make an infusion with your preferred dose and potency.
  • If you have others at home who need virgin peanut butter, you can easily make a whole, un-infused batch and infuse a small bit of cannabis into a single serving as needed.
  • Remember, it takes a couple of hours for edibles to be processed by the digestive system. Don’t consume a second serving until you know you’re ready; you don’t want to have a bad time!
  • Before each use, be sure to give the jar a little stir to ensure the peanut butter is mixed well.

  1. You mentioned don’t use coconut oil because it solidifies at room temp. That is exactly what I want because I want to make peanut butter-filled chocolates with it….I had thought spreadable peanut butter would not work this,,,but by using infused coconut oil and adding to the peanuts it would be great solid treat at room temps

  2. Hi Rich. If you aren’t concerned about the final texture of your infused peanut butter not being spreadable, unrefined coconut oil may work just fine! I recommend making a small batch to start and see if you are pleased with the results. I feel like it may work out perfectly for peanut butter-filled chocolates though! Let us know what you try and how they turn out! Happy infusing!
