How to Make and Bake Weed Brownies (Yep, We Went There)
The “special brownie” needs less introduction than most baked goods, but you’ll find no sloppily constructed, slightly burnt bars here.
For those who don’t live near a dispensary (or a group of friendly college kids), here’s a low-key way to get your hands on safe, tasty edibles: Go homemade.
Not only will they taste better, but when you DIY, you’re also fully in charge of how much bud actually ends up in the brownies. This recipe calls for a full 1/8 ounce of cannabis, yet the process still works if you decide to use less.
BTW, if you go by this spice conversions chart, 1/8 ounce of parsley (the closest cannabis comparison we could find), is equal to about 3 tablespoons. So, roughly 3 tablespoons of weed is about what you need. You’re welcome.
We made the full batch of the cannabutter recipe below, used our preferred amount in the brownies, and stored the excess in the fridge in a clearly marked container (emphasis on “clearly marked”).
Before you dump the contents of your grinder into a box of Duncan Hines Double Fudge, hang on a sec. To draw out cannabis’s full potential in edibles, it must be decarboxylated.
Decarba-what? Decarboxylation is basically a fancy way of saying that the herb needs to be heated to fully activate it to its psychoactive form. Think: A joint won’t get anyone high unless it’s lit on fire.
This recipe makes 16 potent brownies. While they’re delicious, we don’t recommend you eat more than one at a time. If you’re new to all this, eat a small one. And be patient. It could take up to 90 minutes for the brownie to digest and the high to hit you.
Also, different strains of marijuana have varying levels of THC, so they can impact each person differently. Brunt TM, et al. (2014). Therapeutic satisfaction and subjective effects of different strains of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis. DOI: 10.1097/JCP.0000000000000129 That, combined with how long it takes for the effects to kick in, and it’s easy to take more than intended.
We don’t mean to kill your buzz, but some adverse side effects of ingesting too much THC include motor impairment, extreme sedation, agitation, anxiety, cardiac stress, vomiting and, in rare cases, psychosis.
In fact, edibles are responsible for the majority of doctor visits related to cannabis intoxication. Barrus DG, et al. (2017). Tasty THC: Promises and challenges of cannabis edibles. DOI: 10.3768/rtipress.2016.op.0035.1611 You don’t want to be that guy (or girl, or unicorn, or whatever). So please, only eat a little 👏at 👏 a 👏time.
