How To Make Oatmeal Raisin Weed Cookies

The comforting flavors of traditional oatmeal and raisins seamlessly blend with the distinct, earthy undertones of cannabis, resulting in a delightful culinary fusion that leaves taste buds dancing. 

The humble oatmeal raisin cookie is a childhood staple for many, and our special recipe takes this classic favorite to a whole new level. Infused with cannabis, these cookies are not only delectable but also come with an added ‘herbal’ twist. Prepared with love and cannabutter, these edibles are perfect for sharing with friends or, indeed, treating your grandma to some joint pain relief. With a sweet flavor profile that subtly masks the taste of cannabis, these weed cookies are guaranteed to be a hit for both medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.

But before we begin, let’s dive a little deeper into understanding the concept of dosing when it comes to cannabis-infused edibles.

Cannabis Dosing Guide

One of the most critical aspects of baking marijuana cookies, or any cannabis edibles for that matter, is understanding how to dose your THC correctly. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the compound in cannabis that produces the ‘high’ commonly associated with its use. 

While enjoyable for many, it’s essential to remember that the effects of THC can vary significantly from person to person, and incorrect dosing can lead to an uncomfortable experience, especially for those new to cannabis. 

So, how much THC should you add to your weed cookies? 

As a rule of thumb, beginners or those with a lower tolerance should aim for about 5-10mg of THC per serving. This amount provides a mild psychoactive effect that’s perfect for those looking to ease into the world of cannabis edibles. 

If you’re an experienced user or have a higher tolerance, you might opt for a stronger dose. However, remember that it’s always safer to start low and go slow, gradually increasing your dosage as you get comfortable with the effects.

But how do you determine the amount of THC in your cannabutter? 

Typically, the THC content in your cannabis-infused butter will depend on the strain of cannabis you used during the infusion process. If, for instance, your cannabutter was made using a cannabis strain with a 15% THC content, this means that there are 150mg of THC in every gram of cannabis. If you used 10 grams of cannabis to make your butter, this equates to 1500mg of THC in total.

Now, if you were to use one teaspoon of this cannabutter, which is approximately 5 grams, this means that you’re consuming around 750mg of THC, which is a considerably high dose, especially for beginners. 

As such, understanding the THC content of your cannabutter is critical to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience when indulging in your oatmeal raisin weed cookies. 

Remember, cannabis edibles take longer to kick in compared to smoking or vaping, usually around 30 minutes to 2 hours. So, don’t rush into consuming more if you don’t feel the effects immediately. 

Now that we’ve covered the basics of cannabis dosing let’s move onto the ingredients and steps needed to bake these delicious oatmeal raisins weed cookies.

Ingredients & Supplies You'll Need

To prepare these delicious cannabis cookies, gather the following ingredients and supplies:

Cannabutter: This essential ingredient brings the infusion of cannabis into the cookie dough. You’ll need 1/4 lb of cannabutter.

Sugars and Flavourings: Other ingredients include 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to balance out the sweetness.

Baking Ingredients: To ensure your cookies have the perfect texture, you’ll need 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.

Raisins: Lastly, don’t forget 1/2 cup of raisins. You could swap out raisins for chocolate chips for a sweeter treat.
