TABLE OF CONTENTS
Pot brownies are cannabis edibles that when ingested can give you the same high intensity that you would get from smoking a joint or inhaling from a vaporizer.
It takes longer to feel the high with edibles. Once you ingest the brownies, you won't start to feel the high for thirty minutes to an hour (on average). The brownies pass through your digestive system and your bloodstream before reacting. You could find yourself with an intense high in such a way as to experience paranoia. So do be careful with your consumption amount.
Do It Yourself
If you do not reside close to a weed dispensary, then you might have to put your hands to work, making your own pot brownies at home. In fact, your homemade pot brownies might taste more delicious than if you were to buy them at a local dispensary.
In addition, you get to choose your own marijuana strain. So, you can select one that has more CBD content than THC content or vice versa. Most recipes use about one eighth ounce of marijuana. However, you can use less than this, if you so desire.
The Flavor and Texture
You can use chocolate ganache or cocoa powder to get the flavor and texture. Both of these will result in gooey and moist pot brownies. If you were to combine both of these, then you would get even more gooey-ness and fudgey-ness!
The baking time and the baking pan that you use will dictate this outcome. If you used a larger and wider baking pan, you would get the thickness you wanted for a chewy pot brownie. If you wanted your pot brownies to bake faster and having more height, use a smaller baking pan.
How to Bake Pot Brownies
The First Step
Your weed has to be decarboxylated. In other words, the marijuana buds have to be heated in order to activate the THC.
The Second Step
Now, you have to gather all your ingredients. With this recipe, you should expect sixteen pot brownies. Now for the ingredients, you need:
- 4 ounces of chocolate, unsweetened
- 3/4 cup of cannabutter
- Half teaspoon of Kosher salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1 and 3/4 cups of sugar
- 1 and 3/4 cups of flour
- Mint leaves; 3 of them completely minced (optional)
- Also optional is 2/3 cup of walnuts, chopped
Directions on How to Bake Pot Brownies
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then grease the baking pan using cooking spray. A glass pan is ideal. Put the chocolate in a mixing bowl and microwave to melt. Add your cannabutter and mix in the salt, sugar and vanilla. Now add the eggs and mix in the walnuts, mint and flour. Place the mixed batter into the oven and back it for about half an hour at 350 degrees. Let cool for 15 minutes.
