Alternative Infusion Options

There are many ways to infuse either a homemade or store-bought ranch dressing. Here are all of the ways you can make cannabis-infused ranch.

Decarbed Cannabis Flower 

Adding ground decarbed cannabis flower to this recipe is like adding ground oregano or any other spice.

But before you incorporate cannabis as an ingredient, it first needs to undergo the process of decarboxylation.

Raw cannabis flower buds contain nutrients and other amazing compounds in their fresh state, like CBDA, THCA, and terpenes

However, raw cannabis plants do not naturally contain large amounts of active THC or CBD, the two most popular cannabinoids people typically expect to ingest when eating cannabis. 

After decarboxylation, you can add the decarbed flower to any recipe, like my other favorite, cannabis taco seasoning.

Because each person has a different endocannabinoid system and responds to cannabis differently, it is important to add an appropriate amount for your tolerance.

This recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of ground, decarbed cannabis flower, but you can adjust this as needed.

Leftover Cannabis Pulp

Many people throw out the leftover plant matter after an infusion, but I recommend saving them and adding them to your ranch dressing.

The leftover leaves may not be the most potent after the extraction, but they are filled with beneficial nutrients and compounds, even a few cannabinoids.

Besides the nutritional benefits, adding cannabis pulp to your ranch will give it a pleasant herbal taste.

Plus, the terpenes in cannabis pair well with the terpenes found in the other herbs used in this recipe.

As long as you enjoy the taste, it’s great to reuse and recycle cannabis plant byproducts wherever possible.

How Much Pulp To Use?

If you’re brand new to cannabis edibles, it’s important to note that it can oftentimes be difficult to estimate your final product potency.

It will be even more challenging to estimate the potency because many of the cannabinoids will have already been extracted during the cooking process.

Ultimately, the potency of your leftover weed material will depend on two things, the potency of your starting material (i.e., flower buds or trim, regular vs. CBD flower) and the cooking process you have already used.

We recommend adding just two teaspoons of leftover flower pulp to the other ingredients of this recipe and going from there. 

This will also give you time to experiment with the potency and taste, as the spent cannabis flower can have a robust taste for some individuals.

Cannabis Concentrates

One of the easiest ways to make infused foods is with cannabis concentrates

These are the most convenient, easy-to-use, pre-prepared concentrated products for cannabis infusions.

Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the experience you are looking for. 

Because you only need to add a tiny bit, cannabis concentrates will not disrupt your food’s volume, texture, or flavor.

For this reason, cannabis concentrates are very popular among home cooks. 

Distillate Concentrates

While THC-dominant cannabis concentrates must be purchased at a recreational or medical dispensary in a legal state, CBD-dominant cannabis concentrates can be purchased from my shop here. 

Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO)

Full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO, is a concentrated, whole-plant, full-spectrum cannabis extract that interacts with the endocannabinoid system.

Because of its potency, a few drops may be all you need for a perfectly infused ranch dressing. 

Simply stir in your FECO after preparing this recipe, and mix very well. Learn how to make full-extract cannabis oil here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making cannabis ranch dressing can be brand new to even the most seasoned cannabis consumer, so here are some of the most common FAQs I get asked from my Well With Cannabis Community.

Can I make this recipe dairy-free?

Full-fat Greek yogurt is high in protein and contains probiotics that aid digestion, but if dairy isn’t suitable for you, I also have plant-based options. If you are looking for a dairy-free option, substituting full-fat greek yogurt for a plant-based yogurt is very easy in this recipe. Many types of delicious dairy-free yogurts made from almonds, cashews, and oats are available at the grocery store, but my favorite is this easy 2-ingredient homemade coconut milk yogurt.
