As the stigma surrounding marijuana use continues to decline, more and more medical professionals are touting the health benefits of marijuana.
While how you take marijuana won’t necessarily increase or decrease its positive effects, the choice between edibles and smoking is often a personal one.
Many people don’t like the feeling of smoking pot, but continue to do so because of the benefits it offers.
The good news?
There’s a delicious solution out there, that combines two of the greatest things in the world: weed and chocolate.
“Special brownies” are hardly a thing of the past. In this post, we’re sharing our secrets on how to make the best weed brownies.
The Benefits of Pot Brownies
Before we tell you how to make the best weed brownies, let’s quickly go over some of the biggest benefits of eating them.
Of course, there’s the most obvious: everyone loves a sweet treat.
However, especially for those who love to get high in the great outdoors or even at a concert, edibles like brownies offer a level of discretion that you just can’t get with a joint or pipe.
Plus, consuming those extra chocolate calories is still healthier than inhaling smoke into your lungs. Even though marijuana is a plant, and is far less harmful to your body than cigarettes, edibles are still the safer option.
Perhaps most interestingly, you’ll experience a different kind of high with edibles than you would with smoking. Many strains of weed give you more of a mental high, especially those with higher levels of CBD.
However, when you eat pot brownies, the THC contained in weed impacts your body in a different way — because it’s processed in a different way. Generally, edibles give you more of a body high than a mind high.
This means if you’re really looking to relax for a few hours, pot brownies are the way to go.
The best news?
These brownies won’t leave you with a “weed hangover” in the hours after the effects wear off. This means you can get back to your day without feeling exhausted.
Our Favorite Weed Brownie Recipe
Now that we’ve covered the benefits and different experiences that edibles offer, let’s get into how to make the best weed brownies.
We can’t get enough of the following recipe — and we’re pretty sure those you choose to share the wealth with will be just as stoked.
With this recipe, you have two options when it comes to mastering how to make the best weed brownies.
You can make them with weed butter, or with canna oil. The oil is much easier to work with, making it a better choice for beginners or for those who are ready to indulge ASAP. However, which option you choose is totally up to you.
You will need….
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 cup of flour
- 1.5 teaspoons of cannabutter or canna oil
- 6 ounces of dark chocolate
- 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter
What To Do Next
Now that you’ve gathered all of your ingredients together, you’ll be glad to know that making weed brownies isn’t all that different from making regular ones.
First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees. While that’s warming up, go ahead and spray or grease your baking pan — usually, an 8-inch pan is fine.
Next, melt both the butters (or, if you’re using the oil, add the canna oil in with the regular butters) in a saucepan. Make sure you keep things on a low-to-medium heat. (Yes, this will require some patience on your part.)
Then, add your chocolate to the saucepan and stir slowly until it’s completely melted. Once everything looks smooth, take the saucepan off the heat for five minutes.
In the meantime, use another bowl to mix together your vanilla, cinnamon, eggs, sugar, and salt. Leave the flour out for now.
Once those ingredients are combined, you can gently pour in the chocolate and oil/butters mix. Then, stir slowly until everything is as smooth as possible.
Only then should you add the flour, and start to stir again until everything is mixed in.
Now, it’s time to get those brownies ready for the oven! Carefully pour your batter into the pan you greased earlier. Make sure you pour as evenly as possible to ensure everything gets equally distributed throughout the pan.
Bake for roughly 20-25 minutes. You can use this time to call a few friends and invite them over to share the brownies.
Once the brownies are done, resist the urge to immediately dig in. Let them cool for about 20 minutes. Likewise, don’t cut the brownies until they’ve completely cooled. You risk ruining everything if you do!
Ready To Serve
If you’ve used an 8-inch pan, you should be able to cut the brownies into about 12 pieces.
Limit one per customer, at least until you know how you’ll react to the brownies.
Can’t finish them all in one sitting?
No sweat. You can store them outside of the fridge in a container for about a week, or keep them in the fridge for a month.
