    I am trying to make cannabis flour and I am having trouble grinding it to as fine as the regular flour. I have used my coffee grinder. I have also used my food processor . I have also used the old fashion way of strong grinding .

    does it have to be leaf for flour, or can it be actual buds

    I would not recommend it. Flour is typically used as a thickening agent in various recipes and not as the THC “carrier”. For this cannabutter is a better choice. Making cannabis flour from the waste material of a plant is a good way to reduce your leaf waste and at the same time make a special flour ingredient that you can use in other recipes.

    Is the flour, then, solely finely ground cannabis leaf?

    I have used the flour method to make large batches of cookie dough that would freeze, and it works very well.
    I always run my flour through a tamis before using it. What doesn’t fall through the screen gets remilled or use it in something else like oil or tea.

    I’m a baker myself and I’ve always been intrigued with the idea of using cannabis flour, but what exactly is it? Do you mix it with regular flour in order to use in something like breads or cookies? Does it develop gluten like wheat flours?
