Making Cannabis-Infused Sugar and Salt: A Simple Guide

There’s no need to smoke cannabinoids to reap the remedial rewards. With cannabis-infused sugar and salt, you can instantly sprinkle some extra THC over edible dishes or add a quick dash of CBD to your hot and cold beverages.

Cannasugar and cannasalt allow for controlled dosing since these homemade condiments can be prepared with your personal choice of potency. Even if you’re a novice in the kitchen, you won’t have trouble making these canna-kitchen pantry stables. 

How to Make Cannabis-Infused Sugar

Cannabis-infused sugar, or “cannasugar,” is sugar that has been infused with cannabis after being soaked in grain alcohol and spending some time baking in the oven. This recipe can even be made with a sugar alternative, depending on your preferences. Drop a dollop of CBD- or THC-enriched sugar into a cup of tea, heat it up to make some cannabis caramel, or sprinkle it over your fruit salad in the mornings for an instantly sweet and indulgent treat.


  • 1 cup of white sugar or a sugar alternative like Stevia
  • 1-3 grams of cannabis or hemp flower
  • ¼ cup of strong grain alcohol, such as Everclear 190 Proof


  1. Decarboxylate your plant material.
  2. Place your decarbed plant material inside an empty mason jar and cover it with the grain alcohol before closing it securely.
  3. Shake the alcohol infusion every few hours and store it in a cool, dry place overnight for maximum potency. 
  4. Pour the jar of alcohol-saturated cannabis over a baking sheet scattered with 1 cup of sugar.
  5. Stir the sugar and cannabis mixture well to ensure they are properly infused.
  6. Improve airflow by making tracks in the sugar. 
  7. Leave the alcohol to evaporate and wait 12-26 hours until the cannasugar granules appear ready.
  8. Transfer the cannasugar to an airtight storage container.
  9. Use whenever you want to satisfy your cannabis sweet tooth.

How to Make Cannabis-Infused Salt

Cannabis-infused salt, or “cannasalt,” can be added to any dish (just like regular salt but with a hint of cannabis!) Whether you’re dabbling in doses of the non-psychotropic compound CBD or fancy a pinch of psychedelia with the mind-altering compound THC, this recipe can easily be tweaked to personal perfection. You can also expect this canna-kitchen essential to last a long time once prepared, making it the ideal seasoning for all seasons.

  3. Stir thoroughly. 
  4. Dry and cover with breathable fabric.
  5. Allow the mixture to air dry for 48-72 hours or until it is completely dry to the touch.
  6. Continue stirring the cannabis salt every few hours.
  7. Give it a shake in the glass baking dish; if it resembles traditional salt, you’ve succeeded!
  8. Store the canna salt in an airtight container.
  9. Scatter over your savory dishes or sprinkle into soups for an added kick.

Things to Consider When Making and Eating Edibles

When it comes time to eat your treat, start with a low dose (5-10 milligrams) and don’t take more until you’ve given the first some time to work (up to 2 hours). Many people get carried away when they eat cannabis edibles and overload on the plant’s active compounds before the effects have fully kicked in. Keep in mind that you probably won’t be thrown into THC heaven with an edible for at least 30-60 minutes after first sinking your teeth into it, so go easy!

Always remember to decarboxylate your cannabis for cooking purposes, too. Decarboxylation is an essential chemical process that involves heating the plant matter until THCA converts into THC. You will only feel the edible’s effects if you decarb the cannabis flower before cooking with it. 

One final thing to consider is whether or not you plan on sharing cannabis-infused edibles with friends, family members, or work colleagues. Not everybody is keen to try cannabis, which is why you must be transparent about the ingredients before you serve edibles to others.
