Edibles are becoming an increasingly popular way to consume cannabis. Instead of smoking or vaping, you can enjoy the benefits of marijuana in a delicious treat. One of the most popular types of edibles is baked goods. In this post, we’ll walk you through the steps of making your own cannabis-infused baked goods.

How To Bake Edibles

Step 1: Decarboxylation

Before you start baking, you need to decarboxylate your cannabis. This process activates the THC in your cannabis, making it psychoactive. To decarboxylate your cannabis, preheat your oven to 240°F. Spread your cannabis out on a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes. Let the cannabis cool before grinding it up into a fine powder.

Step 2: Infuse your butter or oil

The next step is to infuse your butter or oil with your cannabis. You can use either butter or oil in your baking, but make sure to choose a high-quality fat. The fat helps the THC bind to the baked goods, making them more potent. To infuse your butter or oil, add it to a saucepan and heat it over low heat. Once the butter or oil has melted, add your cannabis powder and stir well. Let the mixture simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Make sure to keep the temperature low to avoid burning your cannabis.

Step 3: Strain your butter or oil

After your butter or oil has simmered for a few hours, it’s time to strain out the cannabis. Use a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to strain out the plant matter. Make sure to press down on the plant matter to extract all the infused butter or oil. Once you’ve strained out the cannabis, let the butter or oil cool to room temperature.

Step 4: Choose your recipe

Now that your infused butter or oil is ready, it’s time to choose your recipe. You can make any type of baked good you like, from brownies to cookies to cakes. Make sure to choose a recipe that calls for the same amount of butter or oil that you’ve infused. You don’t want to use too much or too little of your infused fat, as it can affect the potency of your edibles.

Step 5: Bake your edibles

Once you’ve chosen your recipe, it’s time to bake your edibles. Follow the recipe as you normally would, substituting your infused butter or oil for the regular butter or oil. Make sure to mix the infused fat well with the other ingredients to ensure even distribution. Bake your edibles according to the recipe, keeping an eye on them to avoid burning.

Step 6: Dosage

One of the most important things to consider when making edibles is dosage. It can be difficult to determine the potency of your edibles, so it’s important to start with a low dose and work your way up. A good rule of thumb is to start with 5-10 milligrams of THC and wait at least two hours before consuming more. Remember, edibles can take longer to take effect than smoking or vaping, so be patient.


Making your own cannabis-infused baked goods can be a fun and rewarding experience. Just make sure to decarboxylate your cannabis, infuse your butter or oil, strain it, choose your recipe carefully, and be mindful of your dosage. With these tips in mind, you can create delicious and potent edibles to enjoy with friends or on your own. Happy baking!
