The MoreBranches team has come up with an easy 5-step process to help you make the best cannabis brownie for any beginner.
If cooking with cannabis is a new thing for you, you’ll need to go through the following steps before you actually make your weed brownies.
- Decarb your weed;
- Make cannabis oil or cannabutter.
Decarbing Weed for Your Marijuana Brownies.
The decarboxylation process is essential to making cannabutter or cannabis oil, and therefore essential to making weed brownies. Decarbing weed means converting the tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) to THC and CBD. You can decarb it by using the oven or other methods of heating up weed to the required temperatures.
Make sure that the weed you’re trying to decarb is ground up, and if it isn’t, use your grinder in order to grind it up prior to decarbing. Decarbing your weed is easy, all you need to do is preheat your oven to about 235 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees Celsius), and bake your ground up cannabis for 30-40 minutes.
The recipe calls for infused butter or infused olive oil (or substitute with coconut oil). You can make cannabutter at home by using regular butter to which you add your decarbed weed or weed trim, and place it all on the stovetop or in the crockpot. Once your butter is infused, all you’ll need is a cheesecloth to strain the plant matter from the butter, and you are ready to bake some cookies.
This step-by-step guide for making cannabis brownies with brownie mix will make it easy for you to make cannabis-infused with just a few simple ingredients.
The recipe calls for the following ingredients and materials:
- Baking pan;
- Cooking spray;
- One box of brownie mix;
- 1/4 cup canna-oil or cannabis butter;
- Regular vegetable oil (if necessary);
- Additional ingredients per the box of brownie mix like (cocoa powder or chocolate chips).
By using a brownie mix, you simplify the process, and save a bit of time.
- Preheat the oven to 350° F (180°C).
- Grease the baking pan with cooking spray.
- Mix the dry ingredients (the brownie mix, extra cocoa powder, and a bit of salt).
- Mix the dry ingredients together with the cannabis oil, or the cannabutter, depending on which one you plan to use.
- Mix the dry and wet ingredients together until they’re well-combined.
- Transfer the batter to the baking pan and lightly tap the pan so the batter is evened out.
- Place the baking pan in the oven.
Baking Weed Brownies
Bake your marijuana edibles according to the package instructions, or about 25-30 minutes. Once they’re done baking, take them out of the oven. Since brownies are fudgy, your toothpick doesn’t need to come out clean once you poke them. Allow the brownies to cool for another 30 minutes, and you’re ready to dig in.
To increase the flavor of your homemade weed brownies, serve your weed-infused brownies alongside some ice cream or melted chocolate. That will not only increase the chocolate flavour of the brownies, but it will also make your edibles seem more pleasing to your friends who want to try them.
