How to Make Weed Peanut Butter: 4 Foolproof Methods 

By Cheri Sicard

Dear Cheri,

Is it possible to make weed peanut butter?  If so, what is the best to way to infuse it?

Yes, making marijuana peanut butter is indeed possible.  In fact you can make infused nut butters of all kinds with the first two methods outlined below.  The last method will only work with nut butters that have a layer of oil floating at the top.

Weed peanut butter is a favorite edible of mine to keep around because it makes it easy to instantly have an edible on hand, whether you smear the pot peanut butter on bread with jelly, or just eat a spoonful on the fly.

Those who need strongly dosed edibles can also use cannabis peanut butter to augment the dosage on recipes that use peanut butter as an ingredient.  For example, my Cannabis Peanut Butter Cookies, which usually use marijuana butter to carry the medicine.  By medicating both the butter and the peanut butter you can achieve a stronger dosed cookie.

How to Make Weed Peanut Butter

When it comes to how to infuse peanut butter with cannabis, you have a several options.  In all cases, however, you are going to want to be sure to stir and mix well in order to evenly incorporate the cannabis into the peanut butter.  Failing to do so will result in some portions being more strongly dosed than others.

Pot Peanut Butter Made with Tinctures

Making infused peanut butter with tincture could not be any simpler.  Just add the desired dose and stir until evenly incorporated.  You can even use cannabis tincture to medicate just s small amount of peanut butter on the fly, for instances, just enough for a single Mary Jane style PB&J sandwich.  For best results, choose a tincture made with MCT Coconut oil.

Weed Peanut Butter Made with Concentrates

You can make infused peanut butter with kief, hash, rosin, hash oils, FECO, isolates, and distillates.  Depending on the concentrate you choose, you might be able to simply stir it into your peanut butter.  More often than not, however, in order to evenly incorporate the dosage into your cannabis, it will be best to dissolve the cannabis concentrate into a carrier oil first. 

To do this simply warm some oil in the microwave.  It should be warm but not bubbling.  It will only take a few seconds as you will only need a tablespoon or so of oil.  Once you have warm oil, stir your concentrate into this until the concentrate is dissolved and even incorporated.  Then mix the oil/concentrate mixture into your peanut butter. 

Of course, peanut oil is the best choice, but you can also get away with another neutral flavored oil if you don’t have peanut oil on hand.

Marijuana Peanut Butter Made with Infused Oil

I love this method, but it is more time consuming than the first two.  To do this you will need a jar of all natural peanut butter, it will not work with Jif or Skippy.  I am talking about the kind of peanut butter that is made, as nature intended, from nothing more than peanuts and salt.  You will know you have the right stuff if it has a big layer of oil floating at the top that you need to stir in before using the peanut butter.  Laura Scudders is a popular brand, but there are many other brands of all-natural peanut butter as well.

So what you do it pour off the oil, infuse the oil with cannabis, then beat the infused oil back into the peanut butter.  Find instructions on how to infuse oil here.

Dosing for Weed Peanut Butter

As with ALL cannabis edibles, dosing is highly individualized and will depend on the strength of the cannabis (or cannabis concentrate) used and the tolerance of the person consuming it.  Check out my FREE dosing class to discover more about how to dose your edibles for YOUR needs.  Even better my $5.00 dosing calculators will do ALL the math for you.

Cannabis Recipes Using Peanut Butter

Cannabis Cookies - Pot Peanut Butter Cookies

The medicated recipes below all use peanut butter as an ingredient.  You can opt to use infused cannabis peanut butter instead of the marijuana oil or butter currently called for.  Or, as I talked about above, you can use both medicated ingredients if you need to make edibles with stronger doses.

  • I just found your website! I have looked at many but none have been as informative and fun as yours. I am spreading the word about Cannabis Cheri!

  • how much oil/butter can I add to peanut butter to keep the texure like peanut butter? Have you tried directly infusing the peanut butter like you would butter? I have not, and was just thinking I would need more water because of thickness. Whats your take?

    • I don’t add water and this method only works with natural peanut butter that has a big layer of oil on top. You can add additional oil if necessary, consistency is up to personal preference. I think if you infused the peanut butter itself it would not work well as it is so think the cannabis would not get distributed and the peanut butter might burn. I have not tested this as the oil method with natural peanut butter works fine, but it does take a lot of mixing afterwards.
