If you want to know how to make weed chocolate chip cookies, you’ve come to the right place.  The short of it is that you need a box of your favorite cookie mix from your local grocery store and in place of butter or shortening, you’re going to use cannabutter.  Making cannabutter or oil is key to how to make pot chocolate chip cookies.  The resultant edible is sometimes called a space cookie, especially when it has very high THC levels, so dosing slowly is key to having an enjoyable experience.  These marijuana cookies recipes are the best in the cannabis cookbook.  Making chocolate chip cookies with cannabutter is an easy bake and you can add extra sugar, peanuts, or coconut oil to hash out your special cookies according to your own taste.

Best Weed Cookie Recipe Strains

The strain of marijuana you choose will depend on the following things: 1. The effect you want from your edibles, psychoactive or anti-inflammatory. 2. THC / CBD Content, and 3.  Flavor. You can browse marijuana strains on our site here: https://leaf.expert/strain

Strain Desired Effect THC / CBD Flavor
1. MK Ultra Relaxation 22% / 0.2% Sweet, chemical
2. Bubblegum Relaxation 19% / 0.2% Bubble Gum
3. Animal cookies Relaxation 23% / 4% Cookies
4. Harlequin Medical 15% / 15% Floral
5. Super Lemon Haze Psychoactive 22% / 0.1% Lemon

Depending on the intended use of your cookie, you may choose a strain with high or low THC, or high or low CBD.  Choose a high CBD strain with little or no THC to treat kids who benefit from medical hemp products to reduce childhood seizures, pain, or ADD and ADHD symptoms.  Choose a high THC Indica like Wedding Cake strain in order to relax with friends after a long day of work.

How to Dose Appropriately

It’s important to be careful with dosing your cookies to get the proper amount of THC.  Overdosing on edibles is a frequent occurrence and people have sometimes called on police and medical resources during the panic caused by overdosing on weed edibles.  Most of the time, the episode passes without major damage. So, dosing your bud cookies appropriately is of utmost importance.

Most bud varieties will average about 10 percent THC, although the medical strains on this site frequently come with about twice as much THC due to careful breeding and selection.  One gram of marijuana is one thousand mg, ten percent of that is one hundred mg, meaning, each gram has one hundred mg of THC. A reasonable cookie dose of THC is five milligrams. Say you use three grams, that’s 300 milligrams of THC.  Divide that into 60 cookies, and you have five milligrams per cookie. Start off with one or one-half cookies. Wait up to 2 hours to test your tolerance.

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe



  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 bars of butter (unsalted)
  • 3 grams of weed (ground to coarse grain, but not a fine powder)

First, you will need to decarboxylate your weed.  Detailed instructions on decarboxylation can be found on our site.  Basically, you are going to preheat your oven to a temperature of about 240 degrees Fahrenheit and bake your 3 grams of bud for 30 minutes to an hour.  This temp will concentrate your cannabinoids and convert THCA to the action from THC (and CBDA to CBD).

Now, take your water and butter and place it in a skillet on the stove, melt the butter in a low-temperature setting and add in your weed.  Allow simmering just below a boil for up to 3 hours.  This will extract the THC out of the weed and into the butter, as cannabinoids are fat-soluble.  The water is just to prevent burning. Now, you want to strain out the plant material with cheesecloth or a mesh filter.  Now, you have your canna oil. For this easy pot cookie recipe, you can use the cannabutter as is, you can evaporate out some of the water, or put it in the refrigerator for hardening, and then pour out the water.
