Yo, what’s up fam? It’s your boy Dan, and today we’re gonna talk about some dope ways to enjoy your favorite marijuana strain. You can hit it up with a bong, use ointments, vaporize that sweet goodness, or you can do it the easiest and most convenient way – through edibles.
Now, the most common recipe for marijuana edibles is brownies. Everybody knows that, right? They can give you the potent effects of weed without having to deal with pesky coughing fits. And let’s be real here – it’s super fun and delicious to eat your weed in the form of a brownie, as long as you do it right.
So, before we dive into how to make these bomb-ass brownies, I gotta say that it’s better to start from scratch rather than using a premixed box. Not only is it way cheaper, but homemade marijuana brownies are definitely better quality. Plus, you have more control over the amount of weed you put in there based on your tolerance.
Let’s get into what you need to know before making these weed brownies.
Amount of Weed
Now listen up, homies. When making homemade marijuana brownies, you gotta be careful with how much weed you use in your mixture. THC is the compound in marijuana that makes you high af, but it gets metabolized differently when ingested compared to smoking. The effects come on slowly and gradually – depending on how much you took – so it’s hella important to minimize the amount of weed in your brownie recipe.
I know you wanna get lit, but don’t go overboard and get completely wrecked. The recipe might call for a half cup of butter – but instead of just dumping all that dank bud in there, try mixing ¼ cup regular butter with ¼ cup of cannabutter instead. This is especially useful for those who munch on more than they should without thinking about the dosage. That way, you and your squad can enjoy some bomb-ass brownies without worrying about getting paranoid af over how much weed you’re consuming.
Some people who’ve had too many marijuana brownies have woken up the next day still high af. So my advice is to take it slow and wait for the effects to kick in before having another bite. Oh, and keep in mind what strain of weed you’re using too. If you want to feel stimulated and energetic, go for a Sativa strain. For those who want to chillax and feel calm af, an Indica strain is the way to go.
How to Make Marijuana Brownies: Things You Need to Know
Before we get started with the easy steps on how to make marijuana brownies, there’s something you need to do first: decarboxylation. This involves heating up the marijuana buds in water to activate the chemical compounds it has and transform them into a psychoactive form.
Also important: each strain of marijuana has varying levels of THC and other cannabinoids which could affect users in different ways. Some people may experience adverse effects regardless of how great it is for others – so always take it easy on those sweet treats since edibles are actually the highest-reported case of intoxication.
Easy Steps On How to Make Marijuana Brownies
Alright y’all ready? Here’s what you need:
– 1/8 cup finely grounded marijuana
– ¾ cup unsalted butter
– 3 eggs
– ½ tsp kosher salt
– 2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
– 1 ¾ cup coconut sugar
– 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
– 2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)
– 3 pieces mint leaves (optional)
Let’s get cooking!
First off, preheat your oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit. Evenly spread out your finely grounded marijuana on a baking sheet and let it sit for around 50 minutes (you can check within 35 minutes). After baking it properly – this is now your decarboxylated marijuana.
The next step is melting butter over low heat fire in a medium-sized saucepan. Add the decarboxylated marijuana into the mixture and let it simmer for around forty-five minutes. Remove from heat after.
Pour the mixture into a cheesecloth or any filter you prefer to strain out those excess solid particles from your decarboxylated marijuana – save them for making some tea though! Preheat your oven at around 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a glass baking pan with cooking spray.
In a separate bowl, melt chocolate using boiling water steam or microwave until fully melted then pour in your mixture of butter and decarboxylated marijuana first before adding coconut sugar then kosher salt before finally adding vanilla extract. While mixing slowly add eggs one by one until fully mixed without air bubbles before adding flour.
If you like walnuts or mint leaves just toss them in there too! Smoothen out your mixture and place it on your countertop so no air bubbles are inside before pouring it onto the pan then bake for fifteen minutes.
Take out from oven after fifteen minutes then let cool down completely before serving – or if you’re impatient like me just cut small sizes so as not to damage the entire layer.
Making these bomb-ass Marijuana brownies is super easy and fun! It’s definitely hella tasty too so make sure you savor every bite. Just remember though – less is more! If you’re a beginner user take it slow and let one bite sink in first before taking another one – otherwise you might end up wasted af for a really long time.
Stay safe out there y’all!
