  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.
  9. Let the brownies cool in the pan before cutting them into squares.

As for me, creating these cannabis-infused chocolate brownies was a delightful experiment that paid off in taste and relaxation.

They quickly became a favorite among my friends, offering a blissful end to dinner parties or a sweet escape on stressful days.

Remember, the key to the perfect edible is starting with a lower dose of cannabis oil and adjusting according to your comfort level.

3) Lemon lavender cookies with CBD

After the resounding success of the brownies, I ventured into creating something a little lighter but equally enchanting — cannabis-infused lemon lavender cookies.

This recipe is a testament to the versatility of cannabis in enhancing both flavor and mood.

Combining the zesty freshness of lemon with the subtle tranquility of lavender, these cookies offer a delightful sensory experience, further uplifted by the gentle touch of cannabis.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp dried lavender flowers
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp cannabis oil (adjust based on preference)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Using a mortar and pestle, gently crush the lavender flowers with the lemon zest and sugar until the mixture is fragrant.
  4. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cannabis oil, and lavender-lemon sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and lemon juice until well combined.
  6. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until just incorporated, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Believe it or not, the first batch disappeared almost instantly, a clear favorite among my taste testers.

The combination of lemon and lavender not only soothes the senses but, when paired with cannabis, creates an experience that’s both uplifting and calming.

I recommend enjoying them with a cup of tea for the perfect afternoon treat!

This savory cannabis-infused mushroom pie is a testament to the versatility of cannabis in enhancing both flavor and well-being.

6) Cannabis-infused spicy chocolate mole

We all know that culinary experiments often lead to unexpected adventures, right?

This was the case with my first attempt at creating a spicy chocolate mole with CBD oil.

The initial trial was admittedly a mess — the balance of flavors was off, and the cannabis infusion didn’t quite meld as hoped.

However, after refining the recipe, adjusting proportions, and experimenting with different cooking techniques, I finally crafted a mole that beautifully combines the complexity of spices, the richness of chocolate, and the subtle enhancement of cannabis.

So, here’s my recipe for an updated version:


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tbsp cannabis oil (adjust based on preference)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sautéing until soft and translucent.
  2. Stir in the chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, and cloves, cooking for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, and raisins. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Add the almond butter and dark chocolate to the saucepan, stirring until the chocolate is fully melted and the sauce begins to thicken.
  5. Carefully blend in the cannabis oil, ensuring it’s evenly distributed throughout the mole.
  6. Use an immersion blender to puree the sauce until smooth, or transfer to a blender in batches if necessary.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  8. Serve the mole over grilled chicken, enchiladas, or your favorite Mexican dish.

Trust me, it’s perfect for those looking to explore sophisticated flavors in their cannabis cuisine.

Final thoughts

Embarking on the adventure of creating homemade cannabis oil recipes is a testament to curiosity and a desire for personal growth.

It merges the realms of culinary arts and wellness, encouraging enthusiasts to explore how food not only nourishes the body but also elevates the spirit.

The process, filled with experimentation and learning, invites a deeper connection to the ingredients we use and the meals we create.

Just remember that experimentation is essential.

Start with small doses to gauge the potency of your oil and its effects on your recipes.

Pay close attention to the strain’s flavor profile and how it complements or contrasts with the ingredients in your dish. The goal is to enhance, not overpower, the natural flavors of your food.
