5 Cannabis Infused Recipes That Are Keto Friendly

Don't cheat your diet. Here are 5 infused keto dishes that'll keep you satisfied and on track.

Keto and cannabis-infused meals go great together. It’s incredibly easy for individuals following the keto diet to infuse their dishes with cannabis-based olive oil, cannabutter, or other fat-based inclusions.

Lucky for us, THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis, is fat soluble, meaning it doesn’t mix well with water but can be combined with fat. Interestingly, the keto diet consists of:

  • 75-80% fat
  • 15-20% protein
  • 5-10% carbs

The more fat you can eat, the more options you have for making cannabis-infused dishes. We’ve tied in five of our favorite ketofriendly cannabis-infused dishes and desserts below.

In case you don’t know how to make cannabutter or infused cooking oil, we’ve broken that down too. See recipes and instructions below.

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.

How To Make Cannabutter

  • 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.
