How to Make Canna Flour
How to make canna flour can be an intimidating process at first, but when broken down into simple steps it is far less intimidating. There are so many ways to infuse hemp and cannabis into butter, oil, and a plethora of other cooking ingredients to make your own edibles, canna flour is no different. The process and the final product are different, but through a few simple steps you can make your own edible building block. The best part about canna flour is how long you can store your flour for months, if in a sealed jar and out of sunlight.

Making Infused Recipes with Your Canna Flour
Now the fun part, you can cook with your canna flour! Although your green/brown powder make not look like a traditional flour, you can cook with it like it is any other flour. You can use any of your favorite recipes that use flour to utilize your canna flour. There are a few tips that you can utilize to get the most out of your flour that I have gleaned from my years of making edibles. I have been baking with cannabis and hemp for years and from my many failures, I have learned the following tips.
Arguably the most important You never want your baked good to exceed 340 degrees because the cannabinoids or compounds start to deteriorate or change at that heat. You may also want to increase the spices that you use to help cover up that “grass and dirt” flavor from the canna flour. Some of the best spices to make your baked good extra delicious are cinnamon, cloves, peanut butter, and nutmeg. If you’re looking to bake something savory some good spices to consider incorporating to your batter are cumin, rosemary, cayenne, oregano, and thyme. Incorporating some of these more flavorful spices will only improve the overall flavor and enjoyability of the edibles or baked good you make with your canna flour.
Serving Size Guide
We recommend starting small with your canna flour as it can be really hard to discern the best serving size and there are few things worse than making something too strong. A good place to start would be with the recipe you want to make and using your canna flour for 1/4 of the flour called for in the recipe. You can easily sift your canna flour in with your regular baking flour and then make as normal. We then recommend trying a little bit of your baked good and then waiting a few hours to see if you find the benefit that you were looking for from your canna flour.
Once you know how strong that product is, you are welcome to increase the canna flour to traditional flour ratio if needed. We do not recommend baking entirely with canna flour as the overall texture of the baked good tends to suffer, but a 1:1 can be really delicious and powerful if you follow our three simple steps.
