Cannabis Chocolate Ingredients
This recipe uses only 3 ingredients.
- Cocoa Powder
- Powdered Sugar (Confectioners’ Sugar)
Do I Have to Use Powdered Sugar?
I used powdered sugar in this recipe, because it can easily mix and dissolve into the liquid butter. I don’t recommend sugar with larger crystals as they won’t combine well when you make the chocolate sauce. If you don’t have powdered sugar, you can finely grind your regular sugar in a coffee grinder.
Adjusting Potency of the Cannabis Chocolate Recipe
The potency of this weed chocolate is determined by the strength of the cannabutter. I use a homemade cannabutter that is suitable for making low-dose edibles. Keep in mind, there is no way to measure the THC and CBD amount in homemade cannabis products.
If you would like to change the potency of this chocolate, you can do so by increasing or decreasing the cannabis-to-butter ratio in the cannabutter recipe. For example, to double the potency of this chocolate, you will need to double the potency of the cannabutter, which means using 1/2 cup cannabis instead of 1/4 cup cannabis called for in that recipe.
Yield and Serving Suggestion
This cannabis chocolate recipe makes one full chocolate bar (I use the break-apart chocolate mold from this set). If you would like to make more bars, simply multiply the ingredient amounts in the recipe.
1 bar of this cannabis chocolate contains 24 squares, each weighs roughly 4 grams. If you are eating this for the first time for therapeutic purpose, I recommend starting with 1 square. When it comes to edibles, it takes 1 to 3 hours for the effects to kick in, depending on if you ate on an empty stomach or after a meal. Because of the delay of experience, it’s very easy to over-consume edibles. Duh, who wouldn’t for yummy chocolates? I highly recommend waiting the duration before eating more, to avoid unpleasant adverse effects.
If you have a higher tolerance level, or using it for recreational purpose, you can experiment and gradually increase your consumption. I recommend eating between 1 and 8 squares of this cannabis chocolate depending on your needs.
How to Store Cannabutter Weed Chocolate
The kind of chocolate you buy from stores are made from cocoa butter. Cocoa butter stays hard at room temperature, unlike regular butter. I made my weed chocolate with cannabutter, which is made from regular butter.
Why did I use cannabutter (regular butter) in this chocolate but not cocoa butter? Simply because I have cannabutter available. Cannabutter is pretty versatile to use in all sort of recipes, just like how you would use regular butter, so I have it readily on hand. If you would like to make a weed chocolate using cocoa butter, you can just replace butter with cocoa butter in the cannabutter recipe.
That said, if you store this cannabutter chocolate at room temperature, it will soften into a play dough. That will not be as pleasant to eat, nor will it be easy to keep track of the serving size and dosage. I recommend storing the chocolate in the fridge for up to 2 months, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Cannabis Chocolate (Low-Dose, 3 Ingredients)

- Melt the cannabutter in the top bowl of a double boiler. Stir in cocoa powder and powdered sugar until well combined.
- Pour the mixture into a chocolate mold. Transfer the mold carefully into the fridge, keep flat. Chill for 10 minutes or until the mixture hardens.
