These days, everybody is curious about cannabis edibles, and some people really want to make their own. The good news is that cooking edibles, like marijuana brownies, is not too difficult as long as you do plenty of research ahead of time. This quick guide will help you get started with your first batch of brownies in no time.
What You Need
To make the most basic recipes, you only need two simple ingredients: store-bought brownie mix and cannabutter. You will also need the eggs and/or water the boxed mix calls for.
Cannabutter is short for cannabis-infused butter. This is the oil that carries your THC into your brownies and is the backbone of cooking with marijuana. You can find many simple recipes online to make your first batch. Essentially, you will be substituting your cannabutter into the recipe where it says to add butter or cooking oil.
How to Make Weed Brownies
The first step is to pre-heat your oven to the recommended cooking temperature per the boxed recipe. Mix all of the ingredients, while using cannabutter instead of regular butter or oil. Keep in mind that it will take some experimentation to get your dosing correct. The strength of your brownies will depend on how much and what type of cannabis you used to make your cannabutter, as well as how much of the butter was used in the brownie recipe.
Grease your baking pan to prevent sticking, pour the batter in and cook for about 30 minutes. You will need to let the brownies cool for a little while before you attempt to cut them.
Eating Your Brownies
It is imperative that you remember that cannabutter contains a super concentrated level of THC. As a result, a single brownie will be significantly stronger than a single bowl when smoked. In addition, edibles allow your body to process the THC much slower, so you will not feel the effects immediately. It is recommended that you cut your brownies to about 1/4 the size of a regular brownie and wait up to 2 full hours before you eat any more to see how the dosage affects you. Make sure you keep notes about your recipe so you can adjust your dosage in the future.
