How To Make Pot Brownies

How Much Weed do you need for a brownie recipe banner

Not everybody enjoys the process of smoking or vaping weed, but edibles open the door to entirely new ways to enjoy a mellow high. Pot brownies are a traditional and tasty way to get in your dose of THC. Remember, eating your high means it will last much longer. With edibles, the psychoactive chemicals in weed metabolize through the liver, giving you a high that can last as long as 10 hours. With a smoke high, you’ll feel it in minutes, but it doesn’t last very long. Because you can’t feel the effects immediately, it’s a good idea to start low and slow when you first indulge in brownies. So, learn how to make special brownies and measure the dose.

Sativa or Indica Strains





Weed brownies start with the right bud. If you want an energetic high, you’ll want to reach for sativa¬†strains. For a more relaxed bake, pull out indica. Pay careful attention to THC concentration in whatever you buy. This information is crucial for determining dosage. Plus, before you can start baking, you’ll need to prepare some canna-butter or canna-oil to use with your brownie batter.

How Much Cannabis Do You Need for a Brownie Recipe?

For a single batch, 1/3 of an ounce is a solid starting place. Grind it up and pre-bake it. Lay out the ground weed on a baking sheet in a 250-degree oven for about half an hour. When it starts to smell like you’re smoking it, it’s ready to go into your butter/oil. This pre-heating helps activate the THC so it can get you high.
