How To Make Cannabis-Infused Popcorn

Difficulty: Easy









  • ½ cup Popcorn Kernels

  • 2 Tbsp Canola Oil

  • Kosher salt, to taste


  • Add canola oil and 1 tsp cannabutter over medium-high heat in a large pot. 

  • Add in your popcorn kernels once melted and evenly distributed on the surface.

  • Stir the kernels until well coated with the oil/butter mixture. Cover with lid.

  • Reduce heat. While kernels pop, securely shake the pot every 15 seconds to prevent burning and ensure even heat distribution.

  • Once the corn stops popping, remove from heat and immediately transfer into a serving bowl.

  • Drizzle the remaining 1 tsp of cannabutter onto the popcorn, stirring to coat evenly. Feel free to add regular melted butter if you love buttery movie theatre-style popcorn.

  • Sprinkle with kosher salt to taste.


  • If you like sweet popcorn you can use sugar instead of salt
