How to make marijuana brownie

If you’re looking for an easy to make pot brownie recipe, you’ve come to the right place. The marijuana brownie is one of the most popular cannabis desserts and a classic at anniversary parties among friends, special celebrations, or even any afternoon of boredom. Who hasn’t ever tasted a pot pie from a colleague who got a little cooky? And who would have thought that friend today would be you!

Tips for cooking and eating marijuana recipes

First of all, it is not superfluous to point out certain aspects to keep in mind when eating marijuana, not only for this recipe, but whenever you are going to cook with weed. First, be cautious with the quantities and calculate a little bit the amount of herb you add per serving of cake.

There is no average recommended dose per person, and the truth is that none of us react in the same way when consuming cannabis, so this point always causes some doubts. Ingested marijuana has a delayed effect, but more potent than when smoked.

You can buy CBD buds at Cannactiva.

You already know that the effect between smoking weed and eating it is very different, mainly because the former is much faster and less lasting than the latter. So, especially if it is the first time you are going to cook and consume marijuana, or if it is the case of someone who is going to share this brownie with you, it is advisable to eat it in small quantities to see how it affects you and wait to see what effect it has on you.

The high from the pot brownie usually takes about an hour to kick in, so take it easy. This is an important fact, and you should remember it when you try the delicious marijuana brownie. Control yourself and don’t encourage yourself to eat too much chocolate cake, because the high will come all at once, a while later.

Choosing the right ingredients

The main drawback of this recipe is the risk of THC whitening from traditional marijuana. For this reason, there is a recent trend to use hemp flowers instead of marijuana, due to their zero THC content. Of course, you can use the type of pot that you like the most, or the most appropriate according to the occasion.

We remind you that the CBD cannabis flowers that you will find in Cannactiva are for external use. These products are not intended for ingestion.

Importance of temperature when cooking marijuana

Finally, an essential culinary aspect for making recipes with marijuana is to make sure that the temperature never exceeds 120ºC. Heat activates the cannabinoids and is therefore essential to release the medicinal properties of cannabis. Through a process called decarboxylation the cannabinoids in marijuana go from their acid form (THCA and CBDA) to their active form (THC and CBD).

The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is released in about 45 minutes when heated to 104ºC. However, it is essential not to exceed 150°C or 120°C for more than one hour, otherwise there is a risk of damaging the cannabinoids. In other words, putting the oven on high may spoil the effect of the pot brownie. It is better if you cook at low temperature and take a little longer. Avoid setting the maximum temperature and the grill to 250ºC, because you will spoil all the THC and CBD in the marijuana!

Is it better to prepare brownie with marijuana butter?

Using raw cannabis in a recipe will not do much in terms of effects on this comforting dessert. Actually, the psychoactive component of marijuana brownies is the cannabis butter, not the herb itself.

To make brownies that have the maximum effects of marijuana, you must first decarboxylate the marijuana: heat it in the oven at about 110-120°C for half an hour. Decarboxylation of cannabis activates THC and CBD which otherwise remain dormant without causing effects. After that, the decarboxylated marijuana can be used to make the marijuana brownie.

Marijuana recipes often include the prior preparation of marijuana butter. This additional step manages to extract the maximum cannabinoids from the plant, resulting in a cake with a very high concentration of active cannabinoids.

In this recipe, precisely so that the marijuana brownie butter absorbs the cannabinoids to the maximum, in its preparation we will make sure to let the decarboxylated marijuana rest with the butter, so that it absorbs all the cannabinoids and their power. The result will be a chocolate and marijuana brownie, high in THC and CBD.

I hope these tips will help you have a great culinary and cannabis experience with your marijuana brownies. Now that you know the secrets of the recipe, the preparation and tips for its responsible use. Enjoy!

Ingredients for the marijuana brownie

Write down these ingredients for a marijuana brownie for 8 people:

  • 100 grams of butter
  • 4 grams of marijuana buds (0.5 g per person)
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 grams of flour
  • 80 grams of sugar
  • 200 grams of melting chocolate, if possible, special for desserts. You can use 70% chocolate or higher, or whatever you like.
  • 100 grams of walnuts (or as many as you like)
  • 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon (optional)
  • A pinch of salt

Step by step marijuana brownie recipe

Now that you have everything, the steps to make the marijuana brownie are as follows:

  1. Decarboxylates marijuana. Place a piece of kitchen paper on the baking tray and spread the lightly crushed buds on top. Place them in the middle part of the oven (never in the part closest to the broiler or heat source) and heat it at 110-120ºC for 30-40 minutes maximum, depending on whether you had preheated the oven. Let cool completely and grind the shredded buds finely with the grinder so that they are uniform and can be mixed into the cake.
  2. In a bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in a bain-marie by placing a bowl with the ingredients in a saucepan of boiling water. Stir with a spoon little by little until both ingredients are melted. Once the chocolate and butter are melted, turn off the heat and remove the bowl from the saucepan. Add the finely shredded decarboxylated marijuana buds and stir well. Then cover the bowl with a plate (so that the volatile compounds of marijuana, such as terpenes, do not evaporate) and let it stand for about 30 minutes, while you prepare the brownie batter.
  3. Preheat the oven to 120ºC. It will not cost you anything to make the dough, so the ideal is to have the oven ready to put the mixture as soon as possible.
  4. In a bowl, prepare the dough: mix the 4 eggs, 80 grams of sugar, 100 grams of sifted flour, the cinnamon and the pinch of salt, and stir. You can do it with a fork or, the easiest (although not gastronomically speaking, the most professional) is to take the blender and in half a second it is all mixed and without unpleasant lumps. Finally, add the melted chocolate with the marijuana and nuts.
  5. Brush a cake pan with a few drops of olive oil or butter and pour in the brownie batter.
  6. Place the cake in the middle part of the oven and be patient. Cook at 100-120ºC for approximately 60 minutes or a little earlier. Remember not to overdo it with the temperature or put the gratinator, because it would destroy the cannabinoids THC and CBD, reducing the effects of the marijuana brownie.
  7. Take the marijuana brownie out of the oven, let it cool and cut it into small portions. Enjoy! Remember that the marijuana brownie should be eaten in moderate amounts, as its effects are delayed and very potent, although at first it may seem that it does nothing.

Important: If you share a house with other people, we advise you to warn them of the contents of the cake and above all to always keep it out of the reach of small children and pets. And if you are caught alone at home, put a label on it clearly stating what it is to avoid accidents. If you let your guard down, someone with a sweet tooth can eat the whole brownie and have adverse effects.

Marijuana brownie recipe (FAQs)

How long does it take to cook a marijuana brownie?

At 120ºC, in 60 minutes you have the marijuana brownie. To check it, just open the oven after that time, prick the brownie with the tip of a knife and if it comes out clean it is ready. However, the baking time may vary slightly depending on the type of oven, whether it was preheated or not when you put the brownie in, or if you are very impatient and open the oven door several times during the baking time. When you take it out, unless you are in a hurry or want to eat it, the ideal is to wait for it to cool a little so it doesn’t make you sick as a bomb in the stomach, but if you feel you want to eat it right away, hot, you can also accompany it with a scoop of ice cream, which will make the contrast your stomach needs.

What are the effects of marijuana brownie?

The effects of the marijuana brownie are delayed and more potent than when the weed is smoked. Since no one takes a bite of a pot brownie and then waits 1-2 hours to see how it feels to see if they want to have another one, it is very common to overdose. Then, about half an hour to an hour later after eating the pot brownie, you start to realize if you’ve eaten too much or too much. That can be a big problem, which is familiar to anyone with a sweet tooth. When you try marijuana brownies or other edibles for the first time, it’s easy to consume too much, especially since the high will be much stronger than smoking when it finally arrives. Some people also give in to the temptation to eat a little more after they feel no effect after 30 minutes to an hour.

How long does the effect of the marijuana happy brownie last?

Typically, the effects of ingesting cannabis occur within 30-60 minutes and can last for a few hours, depending on individual tolerance. Because of the way marijuana is metabolized in the body when ingested, the effect of ingested marijuana becomes much more potent. This means that it can last longer and have more pronounced effects than smoking. In any case, the effect depends to some extent on individual tolerance.

How long does it take for marijuana brownies to take effect?

Unlike smoking marijuana, which has a relatively rapid onset, eating marijuana products leads to a high with a delayed onset. This delayed effect can cause someone to eat far more marijuana brownie than their body is prepared for. When an expected high is slow to appear, a person may take more than they should, mistakenly thinking they need a higher dose.
