Homemade Cannabis Peanut Butter
This recipe requires a little bit more effort since we’re going to make our own peanut butter instead of using peanut butter from the store.
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Serving: More than 5
Since we’ll be making peanut butter from scratch ourselves, let’s take a look at the list of ingredients. This way you’ll know what to prepare.
- 5 Cups of peanuts (unsalted)
- 1 Teaspoon of salt
- 2 Tablespoons of honey
- ¼ Cup of peanut oil
Put the peanuts, salt, and honey in a blender and grind everything for a couple of minutes. When there are no crumbles, add the peanut oil and blend it for another two minutes.
Add your cannabis and keep blending until you achieve the desired texture. If you prefer your peanut butter a little crumbly, don’t blend it too much, and if you like smooth peanut butter, blend it for a couple more minutes.
Put everything in a bowl with a cover and place it in the freezer. Each time you want to serve your peanut butter, give it a little stir with a spoon.
How to make edibles with cannabis peanut butter

How to make edibles out of other spreads
As long as you begin with an oil or jelly based options like jam, Nutella, or any other nut butter alternatives, the process remains the same, but it does require cannabis oil rather than decarboxylated bud to maintain a smooth and rich texture.
How long do edibles last
Marijuana edibles are an unpredictable sort that isn’t much different from their predecessor pure raw bud flowers. What is unique about these kinds of products is that they tend to create much more intense and long-lasting effects in consumers for two reasons. The first being the rate of absorption, as it takes longer for the cannabinoids like THC, to enter through the bloodstream: it takes longer to be felt but can kick in all at once.
When you eat any kind of cannabis product, you should always expect the effects to last anywhere from 2 hours to 12 hours long. Hence the reason why it is so important to watch how much of the cannabinoid is being taken, as overconsumption increases the probability of adverse sensations such as paranoia, anxiety or fear.
Why You Need Cannabis in Your Peanut Butter
The primary reason you might want to enhance your peanut butter with cannabis is because of the health benefits. Cannabis comes with a plethora of exciting benefits that everyone can enjoy, no matter what kind of person you are. Even if you’re not looking to feel a little extra euphoric, you can still add cannabis oil that uses CBD rather than THC.
CBD and THC are the two active ingredients in cannabis. THC is what offers all the psychoactive effects marijuana is known for. CBD contains none of the psychoactive effects but offers medicinal effects that are surprisingly diverse. These effects include pain relief, seizure treatment and prevention, and even anxiety and stress reduction, assuming you take appropriate doses.
It’s not uncommon for people to dislike smoking, but thanks to great ideas like marijuana in peanut butter, you can enjoy all the beneficial side effects without ever having to light up. This edible alternative opens up cannabis to a much wider audience.
Can Cannabis Peanut Butter Get You High?
If you’re looking for health benefits, mixing CBD with peanut butter is one of the best things you can do. However, if you want to feel the mental effect of getting high, you can always make a batch of THC-infused peanut butter instead.
Much like marijuana peanut butter made primarily with CBD infusion, THC peanut butter can have varying results based on what kind of strain you use. The concentration also plays a major role in determining how much of an effect your peanut butter will have on you. If you’re looking for a particularly euphoric experience, make sure you use cannabis oil that has a high concentration of THC in comparison to CBD.
Don’t Forget About Decarboxylation
You can spend hours perusing the internet for the best canna oil and peanut butter recipes out there. We’ve certainly found a lot of great options, but the best version of marijuana peanut butter will depend on what you want out of it more than anything else. While you can track down some companies that do offer pre-made THC-infused peanut butter, it might be easiest to make it yourself at home.
When making your own, remember you should not simply add your marijuana in the peanut butter. You won’t get the desired effect or taste.
First, you have to let the cannabis decarboxylate, which essentially means to bake. Simply place it in a pan for around half an hour at low temperatures, and it will be able to decarboxylate.
Now that you know the basics of cannabis infused peanut butter, you can start making your own. Marijuana offers us so much to work with that we’ll probably never run out of fun ideas for what to make with it.
