Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
There is nothing better than biting into that first warm, gooey, perfectly crispy on the outside, doughy on the inside chocolate chip cookie – unless it’s a medicated cookie 😉
Now, it is true. You can use any traditional cookie recipe you have to make a cannabis-infused cookie. Simply swap the fat called for, like butter or oil, for cannabis butter or cannabis oil, and voila – you have an infused cookie!
But if you’re looking for THE perfect cannabis chocolate chip cookie recipe that has been made specifically with cannabis-infused butter or oil – this is it!
Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil or CannaButter
You can’t make weed chocolate chip cookies without THE staple recipe important for every cannabis kitchen: cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabutter.
Used interchangeably, infusing oil or butter with cannabis is an easy way to extract a broad-spectrum of compounds like CBD or THC)from the cannabis plant and get them into the food you are eating.
You will want to make sure you have this recipe prepared BEFORE diving into making your own cannabis-infused chocolate chip cookies, as the extraction process involves cannabis decarboxylation and takes approximately 4-hours.
Once you have your cannabis oil or butter ready, you can go ahead and prepare these chocolate chip cookies or use it in any other of our delicious cannabis-infused recipes like these mouthwatering cannabis peanut butter cookies and classic cannabis brownies.
Cookies Made With Cannabis Sugar
You can also make these cannabis chocolate chip cookies with cannabis-infused sugar if you have some on hand. It is entirely up to you whether or not you want to use infused oil or infused sugar.
Additionally, you could use both infused oil or butter and infused sugar together for an extra potent batch of medicated cookies.
Before Consuming Cannabis Edibles
Now, if you have never consumed cannabis edibles before, there are some important things I want you to know first. Friends don’t let friends jump into edibles without a little first-hand knowledge of what to expect!
Because it’s true, cannabis edibles CAN totally mess you up if you’re not prepared. Before jumping into eating an entire batch of weed cookies, I want you to remember:
Edibles Can Be Very Potent
Edibles become more potent when enzymes in the liver hydroxylate Δ9-THC to form 11-hydroxytetrahydrocannabinol (11-OH-THC), a potent psychoactive metabolite that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and causes potential hallucinations!
Edibles Have A Delayed Onset
Edibles have an approximate delayed onset time of 30-minutes to several hours and can have a prolonged duration of effects lasting 6-12 hours, so don’t reach for that second helping so quickly.
When it comes to cannabis edibles, start low and go SLOW! Of course, your experience will be entirely dependent on your own Endocannabinoid system.
It’s Difficult To Know Final Potency of Homemade Edibles
It can be difficult to know what dose you’re starting with when consuming homemade edibles, so start small. There’s a reason they say “get ready for the ride” when you consume cannabis edibles.
Edibles can be a wonderful, fun, enjoyable ride when you go in prepared with a little bit of education and know what to expect!

Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies Diet Options
As a certified Holistic Cannabis Practitioner and registered dietitian nutritionist, I work with my students to use nutrition and cannabis to improve their health and wellness.
Many of my clients need to make some adjustments to create their own unique autoimmune diet, and that includes removing certain food groups at times.
Below you will find options for gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, and grain-free cookies, as well as cannabis cookies that can be made with CBD oil.
Gluten-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
Almost all of the recipes here on my blog and in my cookbooks are gluten-free, so I’ve had a lot of time experimenting with gluten-free flour alternatives.
Thankfully for the sake of baking, there are so many great gluten-free flour alternatives on the market today that swap pretty well for traditional all-purpose flour. You can easily grab a gluten-free all-purpose flour at most grocery stores.
This is the all-purpose gluten-free flour we recommend for gluten-free baking, you can easily order it online and have it delivered directly to your home.
Dairy-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
To make delicious dairy-free cannabis chocolate chip cookies you want to make sure you do two things:
- Use cannabis-infused coconut oil instead of cannabutter.
- Verify your chocolate chips are dairy-free.
This is the dairy-free chocolate chip brand we recommend for dairy-free baking, you can easily order them online or find in your local grocery store.
Paleo or Grain-Free Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies
Most of my cookbooks are not only gluten-free, but completely grain-free to be Paleo compliant as well. It it easy to make a grain-free cannabis chocolate chip cookie by swapping cassava flour for traditional all-purpose flour.
However, it is important to remember that if you are using cassava flour, you will need to add an extra egg (for a total of 2) to get the right consistency for the dough.
This is the grain-free cassava flour we recommend for grain-free baking, you can easily order them online or find in your local grocery store.
CBD Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
Of course, it is not always easy to get your hands on cannabis flower to make your own infused coconut oil, which is why we wanted to offer a way to make this recipe with CBD oil or CBD concentrate.
For stronger cookies, we recommend using the CBD concentrate which packs in 500mg of CBD in just 1mL volume. Because this is such a small amount, you can use the recipe as is and just add this to the mixture when you add the eggs and vanilla.
For cookies that are not as strong, you can use a traditional CBD oil. Simply subtract the amount you are adding from the total fat content. For example, if you are adding 1 tablespoon of CBD oil, subtract 1 tablespoon of oil or butter from your total amount.
No fancy ingredients, just crispy, chewy, soft, melt-in-your-mouth Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies made using cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabutter.
