Learn How to Make Weed Brownies
Making edibles at home can be a fun experience that provides you with more control over your marijuana consumption. Brownies are one of the most popular baked edibles, and they might just be your new favorite way to get your cannabis fix. Whether you’re using marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes, learning how to make pot brownies is pretty quick and easy — especially if you already have cannabutter! Follow along with us as we teach you how to make weed brownies with a store-bought brownie mix.
Before You Start
One of the most important parts of baking or cooking with cannabis is making sure your weed is decarboxylated. This process activates the cannabinoids to ensure the psychoactive and physical effects actually work.
Dosing Your Edibles
After decarbing your weed and making cannabutter, you should test your dosage, so you know exactly how much to add to your recipe. We recommend a trial run with ¼ tablespoon on a piece of toast. Two hours should be enough to experience the high. If you don’t feel anything, try a higher dose on the next day until you know the ideal amount per serving.
Buying Brownie Mix
Step one is buying brownie mix. Just go to the store and check out the boxes in the baking aisle. It doesn’t matter what brand you use — just choose what you prefer. With your favorite flavor in hand (caramel sea salt brownies for us), you can start learning how to make weed brownies.
Our step-by-step guide is here to teach you how to make pot brownies at home. Gather the following ingredients and tools now.
- Baking Pan
- Cooking Spray
- 1 Box Brownie Mix
- Additional Ingredients From the Box (Egg, Oil, Chocolate)
- Same Amount of Cannabutter Doses as Servings on the Box
- Preheat the oven to the temperature stated on the box.
- Grease your baking tray with cooking spray or oil.
- Mix together all of your dry ingredients, including the brownie mix, salt, etc.
- Add the cannabutter and other wet ingredients.
- Mix until everything is fully combined.
- Pour the batter evenly into your baking pan.
- Put the pan in the oven and bake according to the package instructions.
- Remove from the oven and let your brownies cool for about 20 minutes.
As with all edibles, we recommend a tester dose before eating more. Wait for at least two hours before going back for seconds.
Learning how to make weed brownies at home is an experimental process. Since everyone’s tolerance levels and cannabutter creations are a little different, our recipe is not exact. If you’re happy with your high the first time around, you can count on a similar experience every time. If you need a little less or a little more, change your cannabutter amount to fit your needs.
You might also find that the flavor of cannabis is a bit strong for your tastes. You can mask it by adding cocoa powder into the recipe, eating your brownie with ice cream, or melting extra chocolate on top before digging in.
