How To Make Cannabis-Infused Flour

Cannaflour is a superbly easy way to fill your favourite baked goods with cannabinoids. Anything from bread to pizza bases can be infused with dried and decarbed bud.

Innovation within the cannabis world is nothing short of impressive. Gone are the days of only having the option of a joint or a bong to enjoy the psychoactive effects of the herb. Extracts, edibles, pills, and potions are now all available for your stoning pleasure. In the realm of edibles, there are numerous ways to infuse your favourite delicious dishes with the active constituents of the cannabis plant.

Cannabutter is probably the most famous, and is also easy to add to just about anything. But when it comes to baked goods and bread, there is an even easier and more practical option. Ever heard of cannaflour?


Cannaflour is exactly how it sounds. It’s a mix of dried and processed cannabis along with different types of flour. Flour plays the role of a thickening agent when baking, and can be made using a variety of different grains. During the beginning of the baking process, flour is usually mixed with other dry ingredients such as baking soda, sugar, and yeast.

Cannaflour is simply a fine mixture of weed and flour that can be added into baked goods in the exact same way that normal types of flour can. Although cannaflour does take a fair bit of processing in order to render buds into a highly processed and fine state, the end product may be much easier to use and medicate with compared to making butters, extract, and oils.


Before we delve into the instructions on how to make your own batch of cannaflour at home (and then some recipes), let's first take a look at the different types of flour that you can use. Depending on what you plan on baking, you made need a specific type to achieve the desired outcome.

Wheat flour can hold wet ingredients together due to the presence of a plant protein called gluten, though there are different types of wheat flour. Flour from hard wheat has high amounts of gluten and is therefore more capable of binding ingredients. Flour from soft wheat has less gluten and is more ideal for baking cakes and pastries.

All-purpose flours are a mix of both of these types of flour and can be used in almost any recipe, making it the easiest option when making cannaflour, meaning you can use your batch of psychoactive or CBD-rich flour within any recipe you decide on making at the time.


Now that we’ve been over the types of flour available for use, let’s delve into how exactly to create this cannabinoid-enriched flour. First thing’s first, you will need to gather your equipment and ingredients to get the operation started. You will need the following:

½ cup dried cannabis
1 cup flour (type of your choice)
Coffee grinder


With all of your stuff gathered, it’s almost time to proceed. But first, there’s a few things you need to know to make the best cannaflour possible.

The first of these is ensuring that you cannabis is properly dried and cured. The drying and curing process guarantee that the end product is bone dry, with absolutely minimal moisture left behind. Moisture serves as an invitation to mould, therefore, it’s not a good idea to make food items with wet cannabis. Additionally, the drier the weed is, the easier it will be to process.

Secondly, before cooking with cannabis, it is import to decarb, or decarboxylate, your herb. This process turns the nonpsychoactive cannabinoid THCA into the well-known and psychoactive THC. To decarb the herb you plan on using, all that is required is a little heat and time. Lightly grind your bud and spread it evenly across a baking tray. Bake your cannabis at 116°C for 30–45 mins. Your bud is now decarbed.


Take your decarbed material and grind it further. When making cannaflour, you will want your cannabis processed as finely as possible to allow it to mix with the flour well. After lightly grinding your weed before decarbing, now put it through something like a coffee grinder to achieve a much finer consistency.


Mix your flour and finely processed weed together, then sift it into the same bowl until everything is well-combined. This will also get rid of any lumps of flour and/or plant matter.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Flour


And that’s that. We weren’t exaggerating when we said this method is far simpler than others when it comes to medicating baked goods. This finished product can now be added to a wide variety of baked goods such as breads, cakes, and pastries, depending upon the type of flour you used, of course.


Brioche is a pastry stemming from France, made with high egg and butter content, which lends to a rich and tender loaf. It has a dark and golden appearance, and leaves a sweet aftertaste on the palate. Using cannaflour to medicate brioche will certainly please your friends during the next smoke session.


Pizza can and has been medicated in many different ways, from psychoactive cheese to toppings and sauces. However, medicting the pizza base is something slightly different, and can be used to make already-infused pizzas even stronger! You can also add steamed cannabis leaves as a topping in place of spinach to add that extra attention to detail.


Cannabis bread is a true multi-purpose food choice, made easily using cannaflour. Bread is used in so many simple yet delicious food preparations including sandwiches, toast, and even bruschetta. Making a batch of cannabis bread means there will be slices ready for whenever these ideas strike.
