Alternate Infusion Options

As with all things cannabis, there are many ways to infuse something.

Below I will go through all of the various cannabis oils, infusions, and extractions you can use to make energy bites just right for you and your preferences.

It is important that you choose an option that is right for you, based on your tolerance.

If you are unsure, it is best to follow the golden rule of “start low and go slow” while you experiment to find what option is right for you.

Various Cannabis Oils

My preferred way to infuse this recipe is by adding 1 tablespoon of infused cannabis oil to the mix.

The infused oil easily blends well with the rest of the ingredients, and it is something most people have on hand already.

Of course, there are so many different oils to choose from you will want to pick the one that is right for you.

Here are just a few ideas of different oils I have available here.

  1. Cannabis Coconut Oil
  2. Cannabis MCT Oil
  3. Homemade CBD Oil
  4. Homemade ABV ‘Already Been Vaped’ Oil
  5. Homemade CBG Oil

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 the perfect way to infuse these no-bake energy bites. 

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.

This means that all of the important plant compounds, from cannabinoids to terpenes and other plant materials, are present in the extract.

FECO is a powerful concentrated cannabis extract that interacts with our endocannabinoid system.

Because of its potency, a few drops may be all you need for a perfectly portioned energy bite. 

Simply mix your FECO with the nut or seed butter you are using.

If you are interested in making your own FECO, check out my post detailing how to make full-extract cannabis oil here.  

Decarbed Cannabis Flower 

Adding just ground, decarbed cannabis flowers are not everyone’s favorite way to infuse, but it works.

Before incorporating straight cannabis as an ingredient in any recipe, it’s important to understand the process of decarboxylation or decarbing.

This process must occur before creating the recipe for you to experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD.

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. 

To experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD, cannabis must first undergo decarboxylation

Without decarboxylation, you will not experience the full range of activated cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.

You will use an oven to provide the heat needed to decarb the cannabis in your kitchen.

If you’ve never gone through the process before, have no fear, decarbing is simple.

Bake the dried cannabis in the oven at 240° F for 40 minutes for a THC-dominant flower and 240° F for 90 minutes for a CBD-dominant flower.

If you have never decarbed before, you can get started with my beginner’s guide to cannabis decarboxylation here.

After this process, you can add this decarbed flower to any recipe, such as my favorite cannabis ranch or 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 to suit your needs.

Decarbed Kief

Kief is a fine, powdery substance that accumulates at the bottom of a grinder or other cannabis container.

Kief typically contains the highest concentration of resinous glands, or trichomes, that contain the cannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBG, etc.

This means that kief can be much more potent than flower or trim.

Because of this, you may be able to use less of it in this recipe, or more, depending on the effect you’re looking for.

Remember that you still need to decarb the kief just as you would traditional flower to enjoy the benefits of CBD, THC, CBG, etc.

If you’ve never worked with kief before, you can get my full guide to decarbing and making edibles with kief here.

Cooking with Chickpeas

Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookie dough?

Maybe they love it even more than chocolate chip cookies themselves?

We all love this delicious treat, but as our mothers warned us time and time again, “don’t eat the cookie dough, it will make you sick!!”

I love cookie dough as much as the next girl, but the potential risk of eating raw eggs led me to search for a better alternative.

The secret ingredient in these delicious cannabis chocolate chip cookie dough bites?


I know, you may be thinking EWWW, that doesn’t sound right, but trust me on this one!

Don’t worry; you can’t taste them at all, but they create the perfect consistency for this treat.

They help make the perfect texture for this dish and contribute many nutritional benefits, which take this treat from occasional indulgence to a completely acceptable weekly snack.

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are traditionally eaten whole or blended into everyone’s favorite dip, hummus.

Still, they are a versatile ingredient that is making its way into the desert scene.

Each 1-cup serving can provide 15 grams of plant-based protein and 12.5 grams of dietary fiber.

Together, protein and fiber can keep you feeling fuller and longer!
