5 Cannabis-Infused Recipes That Are Keto Friendly

Cannabis-infused, keto-approved.

The ketogenic diet is a favorite because it allows the body to switch its fuel source from carbs to fat. The diet emphasizes a menu rich in fats, moderate in protein, and low in carbs.

The typical breakdown includes:

  • Fat: 70-80%

  • Protein: 20-25%

  • Carbs: 5-10%

If you’re riding the keto wave, don’t settle for less in your cannabis-infused bites. Here, we present our collection of keto-friendly cannabis recipes where it’s not just the fat that will be high.

But first, let’s master the basics: crafting the oil or butter that infuses the cannabis into your culinary creations. Alternatively, if you’ve already picked up some oil from your local or online dispensary, feel free to use that—most are perfectly keto-friendly.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Oil

  1. Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Spread about 5 grams of coarsely ground herb evenly over the sheet.

  3. Bake at 240°F (115°C) for up to ½ an hour, stirring occasionally and checking on your flower.

  4. Get 1 cup of cooking oil of your choice (Olive, coconut, canola, vegetable, sesame, etc.). Heat the oil and your decarbed weed in a saucepan. Simmer for 2-3 hours at 160-200ºF.

  5. Strain your mixture with a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth and catch the cannabutter in an airtight container.

  • Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Spread your coarsely ground herb evenly over the sheet.

  • Bake at 240°F (115°C) for up to ½ an hour, stirring occasionally and checking on your flower. This will activate your cannabis and give it a roasted, nutty taste.

  • Transfer your coarsely ground and decarboxylated herb into a finely ground (but not pulverized) material using a food processor or blender.

  • Melt the butter on low heat in a medium saucepan.

  • Add the finely ground buds to the melted butter a little bit at a time, stirring in between.

  • Simmer on low heat for 45 minutes, frequently stirring to prevent scorching and to properly mix the material.

  • After simmering, strain the butter into your container using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to filter out the ground buds.

  • Press the spoon against the ground bud in the strainer/cheesecloth to squeeze all the cannabutter.
