They can last upwards of 6 months in the freezer. Learn more about how to store edibles here.
As with all things edibles, there is more than one way to infuse something and more than one way to make a cannabutter recipe.
Here we will explore the different ways you can infuse this marijuana brownie recipe and reap the health benefits of cannabis.
Butter or Oil
Did you know you can use your Grandma’s sacred brownie recipe and swap in cannabutter or your own homemade infusion?
Choose one of these popular staple recipes to get started:
- Cannabis-infused butter: crockpot, Instant pot, stovetop, LEVO machine, CBD cannabutter, or kief butter
- Cannabis-infused oil: such as cooking oil, coconut oil, MCT oil, olive oil
When you make your own canna-oil or butter at home, you can choose what type of cannabis flower you want to use:
- THC flower
- CBD flower
- CBG flower
- or kief, fan leaves, trim, or shake
You can adjust the amount of butter or oil used alongside regular butter or oil to control your dose as needed.
You can make these brownies with cannabis-infused sugar; swap the infused sugar for white or brown sugar.
You could also use oil, butter, and infused sugar for extra-potent brownies.
All cannabis concentrates, including distillate, shatter, wax, FECO, or RSO, can work in this recipe.
Just be sure to check if your concentrate needs to be decarbed first.
Then, mix the concentrate with ½ cup of butter or coconut oil and prepare the recipe according to the instructions below.
How much you will add is up to you, and your taste preferences; 1 ml or 1 gram is a standard place to start.
If you want to use an alcohol-based tincture like the Green or Golden Dragon, I recommend evaporating the alcohol and making FECO first.
If you want an oil-based tincture, use it instead of the butter or oil mentioned above.
You can add ground decarbed cannabis flower or kief to this recipe by mixing it into the dry ingredients.
Don’t forget to decarb first if you want the activated benefits of THC or CBD.
Learn more about the decarboxylation process here.
Just be mindful of adding the right dose, especially if you are not a regular consumer of edibles.
Leftover Cannabis Pulp
If you want, you can add the leftover cannabis pulp to your brownie mix.
Add ¼ to ½ cup of leftover pulp to the prepared chocolate batter as an additional ingredient.
Just know that the plant matter may affect the final texture of this recipe.
- These chocolatey brownies are already fudgy, but even FUDGIER brownies use ½ cup of all-purpose flour instead of ¾ cup. Skip this if you prefer cakey brownies.
- The cannabutter should be softened to room temperature for the best results in the creaming process. You don’t want to use melted butter; you want to be softened. Learn how to soften cannabutter safely.
- When measuring flour or cocoa powder, use a spoon to transfer the flour from the container to your measuring cup and then level it out with a flat edge, like a butter knife. This helps prevent packing and makes for better brownies.
- The baking process is not perfect. All ovens bake at different temperatures; 25 minutes is the average baking time. Some ovens will bake quicker, so check your brownies for your desired doneness with a toothpick. Unlike making a cake, the toothpick does NOT need to come out clean. Making fudgy brownies will leave deliciousness on the toothpick. Just verify that what is in the toothpick has no consistency, indicating that the batter needs to be baked a bit longer. Adjust accordingly to find your perfect texture.
- Know your dose: If you have never had edibles, know they can affect you differently than other consumption methods like smoking, topicals, or tinctures. Your experience may also differ if you use an Indica or Sativa strain.
- Be patient: Edibles take 30 minutes to several hours to hit and can last 6-12 hours, so don‘t reach for that second helping so quickly! You want to make sure your high time is a good time. Discover what to do if you accidentally get too high.
- Be safe: One of the most important things about cannabis edibles is to follow the golden rule, start low and go SLOW.Keeping your mg of THC low is the best way to stay safe. Do not eat an entire batch of marijuana brownies in one sitting, no matter how much you love the flavor of your homemade weed brownies.
Weed Brownies Recipe Frequently Asked Questions
I want you to feel amazing, like Martha Stewart, confident and happy making weed brownies, space cakes, magic bites, and more at home.
Is it OK to bake these brownies at such a high oven temperature?
Yes, it is OK to bake these brownies at the high temperature of 350°F (177°C). You do not need to switch to low heat.
Can I use a store-bought brownie mix to make ‘magic’ brownies?
Yes, you sure can! A typical box of brownie mix calls for ½ cup or cup of butter or vegetable oil. Just swap that vegetable oil for your desired amount of cannabutter and follow the package instructions.
Will making cannabis brownies make my house smell?
The smell will significantly reduce if you have prepared oil or butter and are not actively decarbing or infusing.
What are the effects of cannabis brownies?
Cannabis edibles affect every person differently because of our unique endocannabinoid systems (ECS). This, paired with our physiology, means we will experience the effects differently. Some of the most commonly reported effects include a feeling of intoxication or being high, sleepiness, drowsiness, happiness, pain relief, calmness, and more.
How much cannabis should I use?
The potency will depend on the strength of your flower and how much weed you used, so feel free to use my flower-to-oil ratio guide and the edibles dosage calculator to make a guesstimate. Making your product with trim or shake will be less potent than making your cannabis oil or butter with premium, high-quality flowers or kief. Remember, the better the bud, the better the butter.
How do I make more potent cannabis brownies?
Adding concentrates or kief is one way to increase THC levels quickly. Be mindful of how much THC you add; everyone has a different tolerance. The last thing you want to do is accidentally consume too many milligrams of THC and feel unwell. Always use a THC dosage calculator or consult testing data to ensure proper dosage.
