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. 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. Now, you want to strain out the plant material with cheesecloth or a mesh filter. 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. ¼ teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon salt The ½ cup of cannabutter 1 1/3 cup of chocolate chips 1.3 cups of flour 1/3 cup of sugar 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 2/3 cup of brown sugar Egg. 2 mixing bowls Skillet Baking sheet Teaspoons Mixer. Mix the baking soda, flour, and salt and set aside. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt and make a dough by stirring with a spoon. Makeup 60 cookies, 5 mg per cookie (or 30 cookies 10 mg, 15 cookies 20 mg THC). If you make 15 cookies, be sure to take the only ¼ of a cookie for your first dose. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and enjoy carefully. Have a small piece, wait an hour or two for effects. Some people prefer a sugar cookie as a simpler and faster method. They want the high-quality weed flower inside the cookie for taste and therapeutic power. Here’s what you need: Dash of salt 1/3 ounce of high quality, dry flower 200 grams white sugar 300 grams of butter 2 eggs 500 grams of flour 3 grams of weed (high quality, food-grade bud, no stems or seeds) 3 tablespoons of vanilla extract. Baking tray 2 bowls Measuring cups Measuring spoons Spoon Baking tray. Grease baking sheet, preheat oven to 325 Fahrenheit. Make 30 cookies, (10 mg of THC each) Bake 10 to 20 minutes till browned on the edges. Remove from heat, add icing, or sprinkles and enjoy. These types of cookies will contain the full chopped buds, providing more phytonutrients and fiber than in the previous recipe. However, since the weed is not pre-decarboxylated, this recipe may have unpredictable levels of THC which may be lower or higher than if it had been extracted after decarboxylation.
Some users prefer to get more medical benefits and fewer psychoactive effects, so they like this recipe. Many people prefer the taste and the fiber content of oatmeal cookies. The ½ cup of brown sugar The ½ cup of flour The ½ cup of white sugar ½ teaspoon of cinnamon ½ teaspoon of nutmeg 1 cup of cannabutter (made from 3 grams of weed) 1 teaspoon of baking soda 1 teaspoon of salt 1.5 cups of instant rolled oats A handful of chocolate chips 2 eggs 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Mix oatmeal, flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg in one bowl. For cookies that keep longer unrefrigerated, do not use eggs or dairy. The recipes presented use 3 grams of marijuana which average 10 percent THC and therefore 300 mg of THC. In order to dose cookies which use a strain that has two or three times more THC, you will have to divide your bake into more cookies, and your cookies into more pieces. A very strong pot cookie brought from a dispensary can have from 200 mg to 1000 mg of THC, not meant to be consumed in one session.
Overdosing on edibles happens frequently due to inexperienced users indulging their sweet tooth with pot edibles.
