THE RECIPE FOR MAKING DELICIOUS MARIJUANA COOKIES
Would you like to make legal marijuana cookies?
Great idea: together with the marijuana cake, they are the most appreciated desserts by the product lovers.
Before writing the recipe, however, we must make a necessary premise.
We hear a lot about CBD Cannabis, but not everyone still knows what we are talking about. Urban legends and bad information still meander through the many scientific evidences of the positive effects this plant has on consumer health.
We well understand what is the main aspect that generates all these processes of which we speak.
There is a molecule within cannabis responsible for its positive effects. It is the Cannabidiolo, abbreviated as CBD.
CBD is absolutely legal and not psychotropic (as opposed to THC): various forms of this molecule are found on the market, extracted and processed in different ways.
Its properties and qualities are many and such to be recognized even by the world of medicine, which uses its excipients in various medications.
Here are the main features of the CBD:
- it has antipsychotic properties, which help to treat and manage disorders such as schizophrenia;
- it possesses great anti-inflammatory properties, in fact it is often used as an essential component of lotions, balms or CBD oils to be applied directly to the skin, in suffering areas. Often these are also used to treat serious ailments such as arthritis;
- it has antispasmodic effects, therefore it attenuates or eliminates (temporarily) the involuntary muscle spasms typical of epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and other diseases.
Another possible use is to consume the CBD through food, in the form of cookies, perhaps.
But since we can’t insert CBD buds directly into the recipe, we still have to work it to get the best results. For example, through the creation of CBD Butter.
Here is the procedure for preparing CBD butter to be used in the recipe for marijuana biscuits!
How to get CBD butter
- 15 g of inflorescences of CBD weed (the variety is at your discretion) or CBD oil to taste;
- 250 g of butter (unsalted);
- 1 liter of water.
We chop hemp as much as possible, so as to allow the inflorescences to blend in with the butter.
At the same time we heat the water and when it is near boiling we add our unsalted butter.
Let it dissolve completely, until it reaches a liquid and yellowish composition.
At this point we add the finely chopped CBD flowers to our compound or the CBD oil (not to be confused with cbd oil) depending on the choice made.
The temperature and the times are fundamental to obtain a good cannabis butter, with the rich content of cannabinoids present in the hemp.
Therefore, it is recommended a temperature that is not excessive and a cooking that, in an arc that varies between 8 and 24 hours , gives us, depending on our choice, a product that is less or more rich in CBD.
The advice is to follow the cooking step by step, strictly on low heat, and check the water level in the pot.
A part of it will inevitably end up evaporating, but when we get a homogeneous mixture it will mean that our work will be progressing for the best.
The water must never be below a lower level than that which allows it to cover all the raw materials present in the pot.
For this reason, during cooking, add a glass of water from time to time, thus avoiding excessive evaporation.
Reached the minimum of 8 hours, you can finally filter the contents into a container and put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or so.
What will appear before you will be a different product in two parts, an upper one where our butter is found and a lower one where we find a liquid.
We ignore the liquid and worry about recovering only the solid part. So we finally have our CBD butter.

Recipe of marijuana biscuits with CBD butter
For you, here is a tasty classic dessert recipe: American CBD cannabis cookies.
What do we need?
- 250 g of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 150 g of cannabis butter
- 100 g of white sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 whole egg
- 250 g of dark or milk chocolate drops
Now that we know what we need, let’s see how to arrange and put together the ingredients.
We take a bowl and in it we mix the cannabis butter and the sugar with a hand whisk (or electric, but with low voltage).
To this first dough you have to add the whole egg plus one yolk and mix carefully.
Finally, the decisive and characteristic addition of cookies: chocolate drops. We combine and mix.
Our dough is ready, now what it needs is to rest for about 20 minutes in the fridge.
Time that we will use to prepare the pan on which then place the balls and preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
Has the dough cooled down?
Well, now we can start working on creating our balls.
Let’s take some of the dough, roll it up and compact it between the palms of your hands until you create a ball of good consistency.
We place the balls one after the other on the baking sheet, leaving between them some space necessary for cooking.
Ready to bake?
Keep an eye on the cooking step by step to avoid the risk of burning.
When the cookies will have the typical golden crust but they will still be soft to the touch (we recommend the use of a toothpick to stick them and feel the consistency), then our cookies will be ready.
Now we just have to enjoy them!
