Alternate Cannabis Infusion Options
As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something. Below we will explore all of the different ways you could infuse this recipe.
The fresh cannabis fan leaf for garnish is optional.
Ground, Decarbed Cannabis
This is my preferred way to infuse this recipe. It's simple, it's easy, and it's effective.
If this infusion method is new to you, you can learn more about using ground, decarbed cannabis in edibles here.
You could also use ground, decarbed kief here as well.
And as you may know, cannabis is better absorbed when paired with fat (1). Thankfully, avocados are primarily fat, making this recipe a natural perfect fit.
Just make sure you decarb according to the guidelines for each cannabinoid here.
This is an optional ingredient in this recipe because I recommended the ground, decarbed cannabis first.
If you want to skip that option and go straight for an oil, its a quick and easy way to infuse this recipe.
With so many different types of cannabis oils to choose from, it's important to pick the one that's right for you.
Recommended cannabis-infused oil options include:
Leftover Cannabis Pulp
Also known as leftover cannabis pulp, these leftovers still contain trace amounts of cannabinoids, making them a mild addition to any recipe.
If you're going to add the pulp to infuse this recipe, add it as a separate ingredient and start with a small amount, maybe 2 tablespoons.

Notes and Expert Tips
- Fresh ingredients are ideal.
- Make sure you use decarbed cannabis for this recipe. That's essential!
- This dip is best enjoyed chilled or room-temperature, not hot.
- This guacamole is best when perfectly ripe avocados are used. A quick tip for picking a ripe avocado is to press against the outside of the avocado, and if you feel a bit of softness and give, it's likely perfect! On the other hand, too much give, it's likely overripe, and too little give means the avocado isn't ripe enough.
- You can substitute hotter or milder chiles for the jalapeños.
- Fold in a ½ cup of ¼ inch diced ripe tomatoes after completion for a tasty variation.
- Add cut onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime juice to a food processor and pulse until broken down for silky smooth guacamole. Then add all other ingredients to the food processor and puree until smooth.
