Cannabis Cheri: Accounting for Volume Loss in Infusions; Lemon Cookies


Hi Everyone!

I have gotten serious thank-yous since posting this week’s learning video/article about volume loss when making marijuana butter, oil, and other infusions.  Plus I share my all-time favorite cookie recipe — Lemon Cream Cheese sandwich cookies.  Read on!

How Do I Account for Volume Loss When Making Marijuana Infusions?

Article title card for How to Account for Volume Loss After Straining Marijuana Infusions

Dear Cheri,

I used  1/2 ounce of weed, decarbed it in my Ardent Novathen I infused it in 1/2 cup  of MCT coconut oil. After straining and pressing the oil out of the weed it gave me roughly 2.5 fluid oz (less than 1/3 of a cup).  How do I calculate the loss of oil for potency? Nobody ever talks about this!

Cheri’s FAVORITE Cookies: Lemon Poppyseed Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing

Marijuana Cookies -- Lemon Haze Poppyseed Cookies with Cream Cheese Filling

As desserts go, cookies don’t usually make the top of my list.  But these do.  I think these are my favorite all-time cookies.  The flavor and tartness of the lemon in a buttery cookies, sandwiched around a rich cream cheese filling is INCREDIBLE.  If you can get your hands on Meyer Lemons, it’s even better!

I first created an unmedicated version of this cookie a LONG TIME AGO for my friend, the late Gary Stewart.  Out of all the things I ever cooked or baked for him over our 30-year plus friendship, they were also his favorites.   I hope you enjoy this cannabis-infused version.
