The Cannabis Cookie Recipe You NEED to try and More!

Let’s be honest, not everyone who enjoys cannabis is excited about smoking it. 

Thankfully in this day and age, there are plenty of other options to enjoy budd without having to smoke it. 

After reading this article, you will know the difference between smoking and consuming weed, how to make weed butter, how to make cannabis cookies and an example of what happens when someone accidentally eats cannabis cookies. 

For those of you not interested in smoking bud but still want to enjoy the effects, you are in luck. There are plenty of options including; a multitude of tinctures, oils, spreads, and edibles. One of the most popular and well-known alternatives to smoking weed is time tested classic weed cookie. 

If you’ve never had an edible or are looking to learn how to make your own weed cookies from scratch, this article is perfect for you. 

So, let’s start with the basics. 

What is the difference between smoking cannabis and eating edibles? For further examples, we are going to stick with the classic weed cookie to represent all edibles. 

 Smoking and ingesting bud are two completely different experiences. Civilized Life broke down the difference into 5 sections; How the body absorbs tetrahydrocannabinol, onset time, the intensity of effects, duration of experience, and difficulty of dosing. 

1. How the Body Absorbs Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

When cannabis is smoked or vaporized, inhaling it delivers THC directly to the brain, which means we feel the effects quicker and absorb 50%-60% of the cannabinoids into our bloodstream. 

Eating cannabis, like weed cookies, means it needs to digest fully before you can feel the effects. It has to pass through our digestive system and then we are only absorbing 10-20% of the compounds. When we eat edibles, like cannabis cookies, the THC also passes through the liver, where it metabolizes into 11-hydroxy-THC before re-entering the bloodstream. It also takes longer to leave the bloodstream than smoking it. 

Although the effects come quicker with smoking, edibles (like weed cookies) can taste better and be a perfect option for those who don’t like the taste of cannabis or smoking. 

2. Onset Time

Given the fact that it takes a cannabis cookie longer to digest, it makes sense that the onset time is far longer than with smoking. It takes 10-20 minutes to feel the effects of smoking, while it can take anywhere from 30-120 minutes to feel the effects of a weed cookie. 

If you are looking for a longer-lasting but slightly delayed onset, a weed cookie might be your perfect bet. Cannabis cookies are a perfect time to plan ahead. Perhaps you’re looking for something to help you sleep or help with pain?

Enjoy a tasty weed cookie before dinner, eat dinner and then relax.

3. Intensity of Effects

Eating a weed cookie provides more intense effects because the digested THC converts to 11-hydroxy-THC which is a metabolite that easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and becomes much more potent, which much more intense effects. 

Smoking cannabis provides a quicker and less intense effect, that is fleeting. Eating a weed cookie gives you longer-lasting, more intense effect, but takes more time to develop.

4. Duration of Experience

The duration of experience also varies between smoking weed and eating weed cookies. When you smoke cannabis, the effects last anywhere from 1-4 hours. When you eat a weed cookie, the effects can last between 4 and 10 hours. The duration depends largely on your tolerance, your dose and the strain of cannabis in your weed cookie (or cannabis)

If you are looking for something to provide quick relief for a shorter duration, weed cookies might not be your best bet. 

5. Difficult to Dose

Cannabis cookies are harder to dose because it’s harder to accurately determine the amount of THC in each edible. If you are making cookies and using cannabis butter, there is no saying how much THC is in each weed cookie. 

When you smoke, you know the exact dosage because it is rolled up into the smoking device. 

Not everyone enjoys consuming cannabis or smoking it. Those who like to smoke sometimes prefer the quicker, less intense high while those who enjoy edibles enjoy the longer, drawn-out experience. 

The great thing is with all of the options out there, there is something for everyone!

Now that we understand the difference between weed cookies and smoking weed, we can start talking about some great weed cookie recipes! Before we dive into our weed cookie recipe, let’s focus on the cornerstone for any type of edible treat, the weed butter. Without knowing how to make your own weed butter (or having access to some) your cookies will just be regular cookies!

The Canna School offers a great recipe for weed butter for your weed cookie, so we broke that down for you:
  1. The first step to making weed butter is grinding your weed again. Yes, one more time than you think. You want it ground as fine as possible so grind it once, let it cool off and then grind it again. 
  2. Wrap your bud in cheesecloth and wrap it up with hemp cord, cooking twine or some type of string. (You don’t have to do this, but the quality of the weed butter will be lower)
  3. Warm-up a pot on the stove and add in the amount of butter you want to use.
  4. Keep the heat on low until the butter has completely melted.
  5. Once the butter has melted, add your finely ground weed and stir.
  6. Let the mixture cook on low for 2-3 hours and stir every 30 minutes.
  7. After 2-3 hours have passed, get a strainer that will strain out the ground cannabis.
  8. Strain the mixture (without the ground cannabis) into a container and let it cool in the fridge.
  9. At this point, you may be wondering “What should my dosage be?!” You’re in luck. Hempster offers a free weed dosing calculator to help with portion sizes and dosage levels.

Once your butter has cooled, use it in whatever you want… weed cookies perhaps?

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for!

The Weed Cookie Recipe!

What you need:

  • Mixing bowl x 2
  • Whisk
  • Baking Sheets
  • Oven
  • Parchment Paper


  • 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Weed Butter
  • 1 Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Teaspoons Hot Water
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk weed butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs. Stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water then add to the mixture.
  3. In your second mixing bowl, sift flour and salt; stir into weed butter mixture. Finally, add the chocolate chips.
  4. Get a baking tray & cover it in parchment paper. Place cookies with large spoonfuls of dough on the tray, evenly spaced apart. There should be about 24.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
  6. Take them out, let the weed cookies cool and then enjoy them slowly!
  7. Make sure to put them in a Tupperware that marks them as weed cookies instead of regular cookies.

Our last step is incredibly important. If you did a good job on the weed cookies and there isn’t an aftertaste, you might find yourself forgetting that they are weed cookies or even worse, someone else might come in and eat some without realizing they are weed cookies. 

We found a story online about someone who accidentally ate a weed cookie without realizing it

Read on to see what happened!

 “My boyfriend and I have never been consistent with edibles. We would enjoy cannabis cookies on occasions when we needed to really relax but hadn’t in a while. One of my boyfriend’s work friends left him a baggie with some cookies and brownies made by one of her friends. 

Her friend had been a gourmet baker at a local bakery so we were overjoyed at the chance to try some of his delectable treats. 

In the baggie were two cookies and three brownies. When you think about making cookies and offering them to people, it seems like a very small amount. That didn’t throw us off at all though (unfortunately). We were just pleased that any delectable treats he made would grace our taste buds. 

My boyfriend ate one of the brownies the night we got the bag, but we went to sleep shortly afterward so he wasn’t able to realize they were ‘special’. 

That weekend, we had planned to go on a big hike for our Saturday off. Both he and I worked hectic schedules and didn’t find a lot of days that were completely open. 

We got up early and began making preparations for our hike and errands for the day. Before we left for the grocery store, I popped one of those brownies to cure my sweet tooth. As we left the grocery store (after I added a bunch of unnecessary items to our cart) I looked in the rearview mirror and noticed my eyes were glassy. I had allergies and it was the summer, so I didn’t think much about it. 

Right after lunch, we remembered we had the cookies from our friend. We gobbled them up for a midday dessert and then continued packing. About half an hour later, my boyfriend turned to me with a look that could only be described as horror, spread across his face. 

“Um, I think those were special cookies.”

I looked back at him inquisitively. 

“No way. I feel totally fine. I think you’re being paranoid. There’s no way!”

His paranoia started to spread over to me and I began second-guessing myself. Maybe the red-eye wasn’t from allergies…

We went back and forth fretting over whether they were weed cookies or just regular cookies. 

“No way, they aren’t! I didn’t taste ANYTHING”

“Yeah, but who gives you a small baggie with an uneven number of each sweet in such small portions??”

“I don’t know! Nice people trying to share?”

We went back and forth for what seemed like hours before we decided to walk out to the car and give it a test drive. We agreed that if I felt weird at all, we would turn around and come right home. 

As we walked outside and continued fretting about whether or not we had eaten real cookies or cannabis cookies, we proceeded to walk in a loop past my car five times. On that last loop, we both looked at each other and started laughing. 

Yup, they were definitely weed cookies. There was nothing left to do but go back inside and wait until they had taken their toll. 

We went back inside, texted our friend to let her know what had happened, and enjoyed the rest of our unintentional weed cookie journey. 

Later that evening, our friend responded and couldn’t believe what had happened. She told us she specifically gave us a small bag and had told my boyfriend that the cookies were weed cookies. He just hadn’t remembered she mentioned that and forgot to spread the message. 

Needless to say, the three of us still laugh about that to this day.”

All of that to say, don’t be that person to your friend. Always mark your weed cookies and enjoy responsibly. We hope you enjoyed the weed cookie recipe listed above. Let us know if you ended up trying it! 

If you don’t feel like making your own weed cookies or cannabutter and you have your medical card, feel free to pop by Everest (or scope us out online first)! We have a variety of ‘special’ cookies to satisfy every sweet tooth. 

Different Strains of Weed You Need To Know

Bud is just bud, right? Nope. 

Weed, Bud, Flower, Cannabis, Mary Jane, the list goes on and on. In addition to many nicknames, marijuana has a variety of strains. Each strain can produce a different effect on the consumer.

There is so much information on cannabis and different strains of weed. Sometimes it’s incredibly hard to sort through the noise and find information that is concise, easy to understand and helpful. A lot of cannabis companies have talked about the different strains of bud. They have mostly categorized their products under the traditional indica, sativa, or hybrid strains without focusing on the specific strains that go along with each. 

At Everest, we want to do our best to make sure you have the knowledge to choose the best strain of weed for you (and of course if you want help, you can come into any of our locations).

After reading this article, you will be able to understand the benefits from the different strains, why it’s helpful and how it affects you. You should be able to go into any dispensary and confidently purchase the best strain of weed for yourself! 

Well, are you as excited as we are? Let’s get started!

Here’s something people won’t tell you.

Strains of weed aren’t actually determined by whether the plant is in an indica, sativa or hybrid. There are so many additional factors that go into determining a strain of weed. 

Categorizing bud in three categories limits the amount of variety in the effects weed can produce. Also, by pigeonholing these strains of weed, weed distributors alienate people who have had one or a few bad experiences with a specific strain. More often than not, if someone has tried a strain of weed and reacted badly, they stay away. Unfortunately, it’s slightly irrelevant if the strain of weed is an indica, sativa or hybrid. What really matters is the way the plant is made up. 

There are also marketing companies that will try to convince you that the three main strains of weed are the only way to determine what will and will not work for you. There are people out there who believe all cannabis plants are the same. However, there are actually many different strains of weed, all that have different properties and can lead to different sensations when ingesting and enjoying the effects. 

Our goal is to go into detail about the different strains of weed and the differences between each strain so that you can become a more informed purchaser (and enjoyer).  In this post, we will go over the different strains of weed (indica, sativa, and hybrids) and what each one means. We will then delve deeper into what cannabinoids are, why they’re important and how they are relevant to identifying the strains of weed that best fit what you need. After a full description, we will discuss terpenes, how to understand the different flavor profiles and how they are relevant to the strain of weed you are looking for. After reading this post, you will be able to go into any store and pick up strains of weed that are best suited for your needs. 

Let’s begin with the different strains of weed. 

Most people divide bud into three categories to start; indica, sativa, and hybrid, however, scientists are now arguing that these categories are irrelevant to strains of weed. Research is showing that by looking at the different strains of weed, there are not any chemical properties that differentiate one strain of bud from another in the plantlike form. The differentiating factors for different strains of bud come from the details in each flower. We will discuss more on that further on but to begin, let’s start with those over-marketed and heavily leaned on three types.  

The way some people would describe indica was ‘in da couch’ meaning that a strain of indica would make you relaxed and sleepy however this isn’t the case for everyone. Some people have opposite effects that occur with strains of indica, instead of feeling relaxed, they start to feel anxious and more awake. Everyone reacts differently to bud and everyone needs to learn what works best for them. Generally, though, the different strains of weed tend to have the expected effects. 

The three main strains of weed, indica, stative and hybrid act as umbrellas for a variety of bud strains underneath, that share property. There are certain strains of weed that are great for relaxation, some great at boosting productivity, and others that are a perfect mixture of both. 


Hybrids are a combination of both that can provide an overall euphoric effect and a balance of both indica and sativa. 


Indica is known to have relaxing effects and has been said to be great for a movie night or if you want help with pain relief or sleeping. 

Physically, indica cannabis plants are shorter and bushier than sativa plants. The flowering cycle is shorter and the plants are a better fit for climates with shorter seasons. 


Sativa is best known to assist with creativity and uplift spirits. This is best enjoyed in a social gathering, physical activities, and creative planning. 

Sativa plants are longer and less bushy than indica plants. They have longer flowering cycles and are a better fit for warmer and more consistent climates. 

A Deeper Look Into Strains of Weed

As we pointed out before, a lot of companies use these as buzzwords and they don’t have anything to do with the product being sold. The effects you feel from different strains of weed don’t necessarily come from indica or sativa, but from the cannabinoids, in the strain of bud you’re purchasing. Two of the most common cannabinoids in strains of weed are THC and CBD. 

THC known as tetrahydrocannabinol, is responsible for increased appetites, relieving symptoms like pain, nausea, etc. and makes us feel high. CBD, known as cannabidiol, does not make you high and has been known to alleviate anxiety, pain, inflammation, and many other medical ailments. 

TIP: Instead of focusing on whether a strain of weed is an indica, sativa or hybrid, focus on which cannabinoids are present. There are literally hundreds of cannabinoids to choose from, but let’s start with the main three: 

THC Dominant: This is for patients looking for a euphoric experience. This is commonly chosen by patients who are experiencing pain, anxiety, insomnia and more. If you’ve tried THC strains and found that they make you anxious or uncomfortable, CBD strains might be best for you. 

CBD Dominant: This is for patients looking for relief without any of the mental fog that sometimes comes with getting high. This strain of weed is also great for those who are incredibly sensitive to THC.

Balanced CBD/THC: This strain is just like hybrids. This gives a mild euphoria feeling from THC while also providing the relaxing effects of CBD. This is a great starting point for anyone who isn’t experienced with strains of weed but is looking to try out different options. 

Now that we’ve looked into cannabinoids for different strains of weed, let’s look into terpenes, another differentiating factor for strains of weed.

In short, terpenes are aromatic compounds excreted from fruit and plants like lavender, oranges, flowers, and of course, cannabis. The same area of the plant that produces the THC and CBD levels, controls the terpene level as well. The terpenes play a big part in differentiating the strains of weed (so much so that we built this cool terpenes spectrum).

There are so many different terpene profiles in strains of weed, we aren’t going to go over all of them but we are going to go over the most popular ones. There are four types that are most likely to occur: Myrcene, caryophyllene, limonene, and terpinolene. 

Myrcene: One of the most common terpene profiles found in bud (and also in beer), it’s what gives hops their peppery, spicy and bitter smell. It’s also found in lemongrass. It is common in both Indica and Sativa strains of weed. Typically, strains of weed with <.5% of myrcene will produce relaxing effects as found in indica. Strains of weed with >5% of myrcene will produce energizing effects as found in sativa. Some strains of weed with high levels of myrcene are; OG Kush, Blue Dream, Remedy, 9 Pound Hammer, Grape Ape, FPOG, Granddaddy Purple, Tangie and Harlequin. 

Caryophyllene: Delivers a scent present in many herbs and spices like black pepper, oregano, and basil. It can smell similar to cinnamon and cloves with a spiced funky scent. The profile has a unique variety of potential health benefits because of its binding properties. When smelling strains of weed with this profile, many conclude that it has a musky and peppery scent. This strain has been known to help relieve anxiety. Some strains of weed with high levels of caryophyllene are; GSC, Bubba Kush, Sour Diesel, Chemdog, Candyland, Death Star, Original Glue, Cookies and Cream, Gelato, The White and Master Kush. 

Limonene: The second most common terpene in nature gets its name from… you guessed it, lemons! Strains of weed and plants that produce high levels of limonene are extremely antibacterial and have shown antibiotic effects. These strains of weed have also shown strong abilities to help with anxieties and other mental health disorders. Strains of weed with limonene have been shown to help relieve depression, anxiety while also working to boost creativity. Some strains of bud that are known to have high levels of limonene are; Banana OG, Berry White, Black Cherry Soda, Cinex, Do-Si-Dos, MAC, Purple Hindu Kush, Quantum Kush, Strawberry Banana, Tahoe OG, Wedding Cake, and White Fire OG

Terpinolene: Known as a lurker, does not typically have a strong scent or presence in many strains of weed but is a complementary factor to other stronger profiles. Its scent profile is more complex but mainly smells like pine. A common word to describe the scent is ‘fresh’. Most strains of weed with terpinolene are THC dominant. Some strains of weed that are known to have terpinolene are; Dutch Treat, Jack Herer, Ghost Train Haze, Golden Goat, Golden Pineapple, J1, XJ-13, and Orange Cookies. 

Why Understanding the Strains of Bud Is Helpful

There are so many reasons to understand the difference in strains of bud, why they’re different, and how they can affect you.

Let’s role-play for a second. Say you tried one strain of sativa once a little while ago. You had a really bad time and it made you incredibly anxious. Now because of that one time, you are convinced that you cannot handle any type of sativa. Did you happen to catch what cannabinoids and terpenes were present in that strain? If not, then you aren’t able to fully understand what you are and are not able to enjoy. Perhaps the next time you go to a dispensary, you will be able to try out different strains of bud to see which one works best with your body composition. 

What about if you’re just starting to try bud and don’t know where to start?

If you know what symptoms you are looking to alleviate, you can focus on the different terpene and cannabinoid levels in the different strains of weed to find a solution based bud that works best. Some people might be looking for strains of weed to help with anxiety, others might want strains of weed that have mental or physical relaxation properties. By understanding the difference in strains of weed, and what makes each strain of weed different, you can become better educated on what strains of weed work best for you. 

 Most people who aren’t aware of the different strains might head into a dispensary near them and just ask for an indica, sativa or hybrid. Budtenders do as much as they can to help you purchase the strain of bud that works best for you, but no one knows you better than you know yourself. You may have previously believed that indicas or sativas weren’t a good fit because of one bad experience. 

After reading this article, you can understand that there are varieties of strains of weed in each category. If you understand how terpenes and cannabinoids alter the different strains of bud, you can pick specific strains of weed in the sativa and indica categories that work best with you. 

Is Cannabis Going to be Legalized in New Mexico?

Ever since New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham took office, she has been a major advocate of legalizing marijuana. You may have read one of the articles discussing the details of the bill or heard the media buzz around the bill and the current legislative session. Regardless of where you stand, it is essential to be informed. 

We wanted to break down (or grind down 😉 ) precisely what has been going on, what the next steps look like, and what you need to know. 

Let’s start with the Basics.

The governor has pushed to legalize recreational cannabis. Currently, New Mexico has legalized medical cannabis, which means only those with a medical card can access it. New Mexico is one of 33 states with legalized medical marijuana and could potentially be the 12th to legalize it recreationally. 

So What?

If this passes, it would mean that anyone above the age of 21 would be able to purchase and use cannabis without any legal repercussions. If this bill passes, we would be looking at the start date of July 2021. 

The taxes on recreational pot would be around 17-19% and taxes for medical patients and low-income patients would vary. That means that qualifying patients would be able to have access to medical-grade marijuana without intensive financial barriers. Having medical marijuana in a different tax bracket for low-income patients and medical cardholders is an incredible addition to the bill, not mentioned in previous bill proposals. This allows everyone an equal opportunity to explore the benefits of marijuana. 

The plan calls for a ban on using characters and minors in advertising (along with the establishment of your prevention and education programs), and food-grade testing of marijuana products. 

In other states, there is an option for local government to opt-out of legal weed. This plan will prohibit any local New Mexican government from banning the sale of recreational cannabis (although local zoning rules can still interfere)  

The plan suggests that the revenue from recreational cannabis goes towards housing, local business, and education for marginalized communities in New Mexico. The bill points out that this would be an excellent opportunity for local tribes, nations, and pueblos. 

And What About the Little Guys?

Great question! We have often seen industries that have massive barriers to entry (licensing fees, insurance, etc.), which only allow big players to enter the market. The governor’s plan focuses on keeping licensing fees low (to about $500 per month), so that small businesses and start-ups have easy entry into the industry. 

That means you will have the ability to support local. Remember to always vote with your wallet!

What Happens During These Next 30 Days?

There are a few steps in between where we are now and the legalization of recreational marijuana. We wanted to break down the process, so you can understand where we are and where has to happen for this bill to pass:

  1. A bill is filed.

*This can happen either before or at the beginning of a legislative session

  1. Once the bill is filed, the proper committee looks through it and can either make any changes necessary to get the votes needed to pass or vetoes the bill.
  2. The committee then votes to send it to the main floor.
  3. If the bill passes on the main floor, it is voted on by the house of representatives.
  4. If it passes through the house of representatives, then it goes to the Senate. 
  5. If the Senate passes the bill, it goes to the governor, and she decides to either sign or veto the bill. 

Currently, three out of every four New Mexicans are in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana.

Can I Do Anything?

You can! Getting involved during the legislative session is a great way to have your voice heard. This article will walk you through finding your representative, helping you figure out what to say, and how to make an impact while doing it. 

Trishelle Kirk, Everest’s Director of Operations, has been passionate about this movement from the get-go, “There is a stigma to cannabis that, like many stigmas, is built from a lack of information. Legislators and detractors get caught on the “cannabis” part of the business and forget the economic impact from the opportunity of doubling or tripling the size of the industry. 

This issue isn’t a question of cannabis being part of our community, cannabis has been part of our society for decades. This is a question of whether or not the New Mexico legislature wants to see exponential growth in this industry. 

New Mexico needs growing industries. Studies have shown that moving from a medical cannabis program to an adult-use program will create 11,000 jobs. 11,000 opportunities. 11,000 careers. Cannabis companies are also required to have majority local ownership, which means profits will be reinvested back into our community.

We all agree that for years, our New Mexico law enforcement has needed more training and more resources, adult-use cannabis revenue would be a fantastic financial tool. We all agree that better drug and alcohol education in our K-12 schools is long overdue, tax dollars from cannabis can facilitate such programs financially.

The question isn’t IF we have the opportunity to grow, it’s WHEN will we decide to take it?”.

Everest is proud to deliver the highest quality experiences cannabis can offer. Each product is cultivated, grown, and produced with a desire to help the end-user in the most organic, pure, and efficient way possible. 

We’re here because you deserve the best: the purest cannabis and high-quality information to go alongside it.

UPDATE: January 28, 2020 – The bill has passed the Senate Public Affairs Committee. The next still for the bill is to move to the Senate Finance Committee. Now is the time to call your representative and tell them that you are in favor of this bill passing! We will continue updating this blog. 

UPDATE: February 12, 2020 – The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 6-4 on Wednesday to table the bill. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is still dedicated to legalizing marijuana and has a task force working on continuing the push for legalization.
