Why You Will Love Cannabis Salt

I always try making simple recipes for my Well With Cannabis Community.

Since my cannabis sugar is so popular, I thought cannabis salt would be, too, especially for those who want sugar-free edibles.

Salt is any food’s best friend, and with this new infusion option, you can pair all your favorite foods with a microdose of cannabis.

This simple, easy, and quick recipe will leave you with a shelf-stable edible that will last for months, if not longer when stored properly.

In this guide, I will teach you how to make cannabis salt at home in just a few simple steps, with some helpful FAQs and tips and tricks to guide you along the way.

Ingredient Notes

  • Cannabis Tincture: Before getting started, prepare a cannabis tincture. Green dragon and Golden dragon tinctures are very popular.
  • *Note: you must use an alcohol-based tincture for this recipe; oil-based tinctures will not work.
  • Salt: Feel free to use any salt you want, such as table salt, sea salt, Himalayan salt, etc.

Note: The recipe card below has a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions.

Storage Instructions

Once your cannabis salt is made, you want to ensure you keep it as dry as possible.

An airtight mason jar or even a ziplock bag will work as long as it’s sealed properly.

Notes and Expert Tips

  • New to cannabis? Start here with my beginner’s guide, dosing instructions, and a guide for edibles.
  • Consider this recipe for microdosing only. Consuming a large portion of salt in one sitting would be too hard to reach higher THC amounts.
  • Keep cannabis salt as dry as possible during storage.
  • Keep out of reach of children; label the mason jar as necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

What kinds of salt can I use?

Any kind that you’d like! Sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, or Kosher salt are just a few ideas.

Can I substitute the tincture for a different one?

Of course! Feel free to check out any of my other tinctures for additional ideas, including the Green Dragon, Golden Dragon, THCA tincture, and CBDA tinctures. Just remember, you can NOT use an oil-based tincture for this recipe.

How do you infuse salt with CBD?

First, you will want to use CBD flower to make a CBD tincture. From there, you can just follow this recipe as is!

What are some of your favorite foods to put this salt on?

I love putting this on snacks like popcorn and chips. I also put it on other snack items like salsa or guacamole. And, of course, I love sprinkling a little bit on top of my dark chocolate and caramel.

Can I use this as a way to microdose cannabis?

Yes, microdosing THC is really the only outcome of this recipe; one can only eat so much salt at once! This option may be a good way to introduce cannabis in small amounts throughout the day.

Is this a good option for people with many allergies or restrictions?

Yes, this recipe is one of the best! It is naturally gluten and dairy-free, vegan, Paleo, and Keto-friendly. Unlike other edible recipes, this option is also naturally fat-free.

Prep: 5 minutes
Air Arying Time: 2 days
Total: 2 days 5 minutes
Servings: 48 teaspoons (1 cups)



  • Add the salt to a glass baking dish. Pour the tincture over the salt.
  • Use a spatula to stir the salt and tincture together, ensuring all of the salt is coated. The mixture will resemble wet sand.
  • Cover the baking dish with a breathable fabric and place in a safe area to air drying. Allow the mixture to dry for 48-72 hours, stirring every few hours.
  • You will know when your salt is ready when all of the alcohol has evaporated off and the mixture again resembles dry salt.
  • Place the infused salt in an air-tight jar and store it in a cool, dry place.


  • You can not make cannabis-infused salt without the alcohol tincture  You can not make cannabis salt with butter, oil, or any other type of fat.
  • You absolutely do not want to put a solid top or a lid on the pan while the sugar is drying.
  • If you do not stir the salt enough, it will harden together on itself and create a hard chunk. If this happens, you can use the food processor or a ziplock bag and a rolling pin to break it back up into granules again.
  • If stored properly, the cannabis salt should last at least 3 months, if not longer.

  1. What about someone who can’t have alcohol due to cirrhosis? Tincture is the only way to infuse salt?

    Thank you

  2. Hey Mo – it’s important to remember that at the end of the salt making process, there is zero alcohol leftover 🙂 I hope this helps!

  3. Hello Roberta, yes, either option should work the same 😀 Let us know how it turns out for you!

  4. Is the evaporation process used in this the same as with the sugar? As in pour it on the salt, put coffefilter on and leave it in an unocupied room for a few days, stirring now and then?

  5. Hi Adrian. Yes, the process to make canna-salt is the same as the process to make canna-sugar. ?

  6. Hi Annie. We don’t have any experience with infusing epsom salts, but you can try a small sample to see how it works. I would double check the ingredients of your epsom salt to ensure there are no other added ingredients that could interfere with the process. Let us know how if you try it and how it goes!
