Ingredient Notes

A picture of the ingredients needed to make CBD seasoning.
  • Decarbed CBD flower – this is a great way to infuse the recipe, but there are other ideas outlined in the alternative infusion section below. Just don’t forget to decarb first. Need to buy some? Shop all varieties of my CBD flower here.
  • Whole black peppercorns – Ground black pepper will work here, too
  • Whole coriander seed
  • Whole cumin seeds
  • Dried rosemary
  • Granulated onion
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Dried thyme
  • Kosher salt – You can also use sea salt or cannabis salt
  • Seasoned salt – Like Lawry’s: a perfect combination of essential spices like paprika and turmeric that contains less sodium
  • Brown sugar: Or cannabis sugar, if desired, for the perfect touch of sweet
  • *If you don’t have whole and want to use ground spices, just decrease the coriander to ½ tablespoon, decrease the amount of cumin to 1 ½ teaspoon, and use the rest as listed.

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

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – Add the black peppercorns, whole coriander, and whole cumin to a spice grinder and pulse a couple of times to get a coarse grind
  • Step 2 – Add the dried rosemary and dried thyme to the spice grinder and run to get a fine grind
  • Step 3 – Add the remaining ingredients and decarbed cannabis to the spice grinder and gently pulse to incorporate; grinding too much will pulverize the salt grains.
  • Step 4 – Transfer the CBD seasoning rub to a small bowl if used immediately or an air-tight container and store it in a dark, dry cabinet for long-term storage.
  • Step 5- Use the CBD seasoning rub as desired. Apply to coat steaks, roasts, burgers, and any cut to grill or roast, and enjoy!

Storage Instructions

Store your homemade CBD seasoning in a cool, dry place at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

You can also store it in the freezer to maintain the potency of the CBD flower. Find more tips and tricks for how to store edibles here.

Alternate Cannabis Infusion Options

As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something. Below we will explore all the different ways you could infuse this recipe.

CBD Flower

One of the easiest ways to make an infused recipe is to use just decarbed cannabis.

Whether it’s fan leaves, trim, or buds of kief, there is an easy way to use this herb in all your favorite recipes.

For this recipe, and in my guide to cooking with CBD, I recommend using ground CBD flowers.

It’s important to keep in mind that you will want to decarb the CBD flower for the full activated CBD benefits.

Of course, you could skip the decarb process and reap the benefits of CBDA if desired.

To get started with this option, you can shop my high-quality CBD flower and then learn how to decarb CBD flower in an oven or Instant pot.

THC Flower

If you prefer the intoxicating effects of THC, you can easily swap your favorite strain of THC flower for the CBD flower called for in this recipe.

Just be sure to use the edibles dosage calculator before starting and refer to my dosing guide if you’re unsure how much to add.

Cannabis Salt & Sugar

If you’re into microdosing, cannabis salt or cannabis sugar may be perfect!

We are using both salt and sugar in this recipe, so feel free to swap in which option you like best.

Notes and Expert Tips

  • No worries if you have already ground the cannabis, you can add it as-is
  • Plan to use at least one teaspoon of seasoning per pound of meat or veggies
  • If roasting in an oven, put this seasoning on the roast’s surface, get all sides of the meat, and coat with a little olive oil before cooking
  • Avoid any high-temperature cooking like grilling, frying, or microwaving to ensure you’re not destroying your cannabinoids
