How to Make Cannabis-Infused Sugar and Salt

Enjoy the remedial benefits of cannabis without smoking by making cannabis-infused sugar and salt. These versatile condiments can be easily added to various dishes and beverages, allowing for controlled dosing. Whether you’re a novice in the kitchen or an experienced cook, making cannabis-infused sugar and salt is a simple process.

How to Make Cannabis-Infused Sugar

Cannabis-infused sugar, or “cannasugar,” is made by infusing sugar with cannabis soaked in grain alcohol and baked. This recipe can be adjusted to use a sugar alternative if preferred. Cannasugar can be added to tea, used to make cannabis caramel, or sprinkled over fruit salad for a sweet and indulgent treat.


  • 1 cup of white sugar or a sugar alternative like Stevia
  • 1-3 grams of cannabis or hemp flower
  • ΒΌ cup of strong grain alcohol, such as Everclear 190 Proof


  1. Decarboxylate your plant material.
  2. Place the decarbed plant material in a mason jar, cover it with grain alcohol, and seal the jar securely.
  3. Shake the jar every few hours and let it sit overnight in a cool, dry place for maximum potency.
  4. Pour the alcohol-infused cannabis over a baking sheet with 1 cup of sugar.
  5. Stir the sugar and cannabis mixture well to ensure proper infusion.
  6. Create tracks in the sugar to improve airflow.
  7. Allow the alcohol to evaporate and wait 12-26 hours until the cannasugar granules are ready.
  8. Transfer the cannasugar to an airtight storage container.
  9. Use the cannasugar whenever desired.

How to Make Cannabis-Infused Salt

Cannabis-infused salt, or “cannasalt,” is similar to regular salt but with a hint of cannabis. It can be added to any dish and easily adjusted to personal preference. Cannasalt has a long shelf life once prepared, making it a versatile seasoning for all seasons.



  1. Add salt to a glass baking dish.
  2. Drizzle a tincture over the salt.
  3. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Dry and cover with breathable fabric.
  5. Allow the mixture to air dry for 48-72 hours or until completely dry to the touch.
  6. Continue stirring the cannabis salt every few hours.
  7. Shake the glass baking dish; if the mixture resembles traditional salt, it is ready.
  8. Store the canna salt in an airtight container.
  9. Sprinkle the cannabis-infused salt over savory dishes or add it to soups for an extra kick.

Things to Consider When Making and Eating Edibles

When consuming edibles, it’s important to start with a low dose and wait for the effects to fully kick in before consuming more. The onset of the edible’s effects may take up to 2 hours, so patience is key. Additionally, decarboxylation of the cannabis flower is necessary to activate its compounds for maximum potency. Lastly, be transparent about the ingredients when sharing cannabis-infused edibles with others.
