Munchies: Best Cannabutter Cookies Recipe
Listen to this article:

Cannabutter is extremely versatile and can be used in nearly every recipe and dish imaginable. When it comes to weed edibles, brownies, gummies, and cookies are probably the first things that come to mind. Cannabutter cookies are simple to make, last quite a long time, and are much cheaper to make at home than to buy at a dispensary.

Does cannabutter lose potency when baking?

This is one of the most common questions home chefs ask when it comes to cooking with cannabutter. Once prepared and stored correctly in an airtight container in the fridge, cannabutter can last for a very long time. When it comes to reheating, cooking, or baking with cannabutter, it is possible to lose potency and terpenes in the process if the cannabutter gets too hot. The general rule is to never exceed 350 degrees fahrenheit when baking since it is believed that the cannabinoids start to break down around 365 degrees.

Can I use cannabutter for baking?

Cannabutter is perfect for baking, cooking, or even melting and using as a drizzle. If you’re trying to make weed edibles the easiest way possible, you may be wondering “can you substitute cannabutter for regular butter?” The answer is yes! Any recipe can be “heightened” by substituting all or part of the normal butter for cannabutter. Just be sure to calculate the dosage per serving so you know how much medicine you’re getting with each cookie or slice of pie.
