How to make marijuana brownie in just 5 minutes

It is one of the most classic desserts to make with cannabis, but that’s not why they are outdated. Today we give you a simple, easy-to-make pot brownie recipe and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it.

I’ll confess one thing: Just seeing a chocolate brownie my mouth begins watering…and I can’t help it!?

Chocolate brownie is one of those desserts that goes well at any time of the day and, of course, if it’s well done, it is equally liked by children and adults, by the sweet tooths of sugar and by those who move more for the delicious flavor of cocoa; and of course, the brownie (with marijuana star ingredient) is one of the favorite desserts for marijuana lovers, because its simplicity in the combination of sweet chocolate with our universal medicine.

Thus, it is not surprising that this sweet of American origin is one of the classics among the recipes made with marijuana, and for this reason, today we want to give you one of the hundreds of versions that exist about it.

By the way, did you know that brownie came up by chance in 1987 because the cook forgot to pour yeast while preparing it? Blessed forgetfulness!

⭐ Marijuana Cooking Tips

All right. I had told you that I was going to give you the recipe for Marijuana Brownie, promised, I’ll do it soon, but before that, and if you think it’s okay, I think it’s not superfluous to remember some concepts or aspects to keep in mind, not only for this recipe, but whenever you’re going to cook with marijuana.

Maybe you already know, or maybe it’s the first time you’ve ever got your “hands on”. Whatever your case may be, I’m sure it never hurts to read the following tips for cooking with marijuana again:

Be meticulous with the amounts of plant: There is not a recommended average dose per person, and the truth is that none of us react in the same way when using cannabis, and you know that the effect between smoking or eating it is very different, mainly because the former is much faster and less durable than the latter.

So, if it’s the first time you’re going to cook and consume it, or someone who’s going to share this brownie with you for the first time, it’s best to go little by little, both in its preparation and at the time of eating it, and wait to see what effect it produces. It usually takes about an hour to take effect, so if you’ve thought about smoking a joint during that time… big mistake!

I Recommend to start with a half gram of marijuana (20% THC) for every 20 g of Brownie if it is in bud form and 2 grams if you use the remains of the manicured buds, but do not use more.

Another thing you have to take into account, if you’re going to accompany this recipe with another one that also contains marijuana, let pass one or two hours between them.

-How to use marijuana: If what you want is that, in addition to eating a delicious brownie, enjoy the effect of cannabis, you have to take into account that for THC has an effect, whenever you mix it with food you will have to mix it and heat it with some fat; the most typical is usually butter, in fact, will be the fat that we use to make this recipe.

Previously, the buds and leaves of marijuana will have to be pulverized in a grinder, and collect the resin stuck with a little extra virgin olive oil, and then mix everything with butter and chocolate.

You can use a grinder to shred your marijuana.

-Control the temperature: The ideal temperature for cooking cannabis in the oven is always the lowest possible. It’s better to cook more slowly, in this way, the cannabis should not lose much of its cannabinoids and terpenes. Cook the Brownie in the oven at 120ºC for a minimum of one hour, until the dough is compact.

No alcohol: okay, I know it doesn’t sound very good, but if smoked marijuana and alcohol aren’t good companions, they are less so when you eat. So, if you can avoid a bad trip, it would be better doing it.

And if you or one of your guests are in the mood, have a glass of wine and satisfy your desire.

-Be patient: As I’ve told you before, the effect takes a lot longer to reach, but when it does, it stays for a long time, so be patient, and wait for the high.

⛳ Recipe of marijuana brownie, step by step

And now, we’ll pass to the recipe of an easy chocolate brownie, step by step and in only 5 minutes. That is to say, the time it will take you to prepare it, later, of course, you will have to wait until it is cooked in the oven, but in the meantime… it occurs to me that you can go doing a thousand and one things, like preparing the lounge or the table where you and your friends are going to eat it.

You won’t even notice!

What ingredients do you need to make marijuana brownie?

Write these down for a brownie for 8 people:

  • 100 grams of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Half a cup flour
  • 200 grams of chocolate to melt, if possible, special for desserts
  • 4 grams of marijuana (0.5 g per person)

Ingredients for making this cannabis brownie

Now that you’ve got everything, the next steps are as follows:

1-First we put the oven to heat to 120ºC (it won’t cost us anything to make the dough, so the ideal thing is to be ready to put our mixture as soon as we finish preparing it).

2-Next, heat a frying pan, to which we will add the butter and chocolate that we are going to mix little by little.

3-While this is being done, in a bowl, add the eggs, sugar, flour and stir. You can do it with a fork or, the easiest thing (even if it’s not, gastronomically speaking, the most professional thing) is to take the mixer and in half a second it’s all mixed without unpleasant lumps.

4-Finally, add the chocolate and marijuana that will have to be very well crushed and put it in the oven.. How long? It depends on how patient you are. At 120 degrees, in 60 minutes you have it. To check it out, just open the oven after that time, prick the brownie with the tip of a knife and if comes out clean, it’s ready.

What about the marijuana brownie smell while it’s being cooked in the oven? The truth is, yes, it smells pretty good. Maybe not as much as when you smoke it, but yes.

When you take it out, unless you’re in a hurry or want to eat it, the ideal thing is to wait for it to cool down a bit so that it doesn’t bad like a pump in your stomach, but if you feel like eating it inmediatly, you can also accompany it with an ice-cream ball, which will make the contrast your stomach needs.

You can accompany brownie with strawberries, as well as cream.

And… you just have to enjoy the trip! Ah! I forgot to tell you! If you want to make a nice presentation, add some almonds cut into small pieces or a little icing sugar. Everything to your taste! There are also people who add even more chocolate, whether in shavings or melted, even some fresh fruit (strawberry, for example, is great), as well as some cream.

✨ Effects of marijuana brownie

In this case, just like when you smoke a joint, it all depends on your physical and psychological state, your body weight, if you drink liquids, and also, of course, the amount of cannabis edibles you have ingested.

We recommend not to take marijuana edibles in case of taking any pharmacological treatment as rifampicin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin and St. John’s wort.

That’s why it’s recommended not to take more than one serving or, at least, not to take it until one or two hours have passed by and you’ve seen the effect it has on you. In fact, if it’s the first time you do it, try only one piece and once that time has elapsed, you decide whether or not you want to finish the portion. But remember that the effect always takes longer to reach than if you smoke it, but also lasts much longer.

Once this is explained, the effect also has a lot to do with the strain and quality of cannabis you have used.

For example, if you prepare brownie with an indica or hybrid cultivar with a high CBD content and caryophyllene diterpenes, the effects will be narcotic or relaxing.

On the other hand, if you use sativa marijuana with low CBD content and high monoterpenic composition, it is normal for you to become active or be more cheerful and happy.

Today we give you a simple, easy-to-make pot brownie recipe and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it.

How to Make Single-Serving Cannabis Edibles

There’s something enchanting about cannabis edibles. It’s the way that about an hour or so after taking a few bites of an innocent looking cookie (or gummy bear, brownie, licorice rope, you name it) you can be taken downstream on a powerful, full-body high that can last for hours — some giggles included. Edibles also provide a feeling that is far different from smoking, which is one of the reasons they’re gaining in popularity with people who can’t or choose not to smoke.

Many medical patients also prefer edibles because they are more discreet, don’t require smoking, and can have more powerful effects.

But what to do when you’re cooking for one? When it’s the end of the work day and you just want to down an edible and spend the rest of the night sinking into the couch with a grin on your face?

This is where single serving edibles can be a game-changer, and why they should be part of your repertoire.

Go directly to the recipes:

Conserve your cannabis

Many people are under the assumption that preparing edibles requires using a large amount of marijuana and producing a batch of brownies or cookies that could go stale before you get to them. For the solo pilot, when facing a recipe that calls for at least a quarter ounce of cannabis, it’s a lot easier to just twist up a joint and get the night started.

Luckily, single-serving edibles require far less cannabis to prepare. Even just a gram or a half gram of finely-ground, decarboxylated cannabis can be enough to create a potent single serving edible. And if you vape your weed, you’re in luck: already vaped marijuana flower can be saved and used in preparing edibles. The vaping process already decarboxylated it (although some of the THC and CBD will already have been used up), so all you have to do is sprinkle it onto whatever you’re preparing, and pop it in the oven if it needs to be baked. You’ll probably want to use a larger amount than you would with fresh flower, but regardless, this is a great trick for making your cannabis stretch even further.

Easier for dosing

The effect a particular marijuana dose has on somebody is a highly individual thing. More experienced users may find that a large dose of well over 20mg produces just the right high for them, while a novice user may find that a fraction of that dose produces a high that is far too intense.

With large batches of edibles, such as a pan of brownies, it’s easy to know how much weed went into the entire recipe, but how much is in each individual dose could vary widely. It also could require some guess work trying to figure out what size piece is a proper dose — and how big is too much.

With single-serving edibles you know exactly how much pot is in each serving, and can plan accordingly. Also, in the event the edibles come out too strong — or not strong enough — this gives you a good way to know how to readjust. In other words, it can be a good way to find your ideal dose.

Eat healthier, experiment more

There is nothing inherently caloric or unhealthy about eating cannabis, but tons of recipes call for high levels of sugar and butter that you might rather avoid. These additives are likely to be present in whatever single-serving edible you’re preparing, but if you’re making an entire pan of marijuana peanut brittle, you may feel compelled to eat more than you would otherwise.

Because single serving edibles only require a small amount of marijuana and are easy to make, they’re very conducive to experimenting. Last night you tried peanut butter and chocolate firecrackers? What about a single marijuana cake pop? Because you have to invest so little weed in making single serving edibles, you can pop out the recipe on a moment’s notice, and don’t need to wait for a special occasion or for the next time you have company.

But will my edibles taste like weed?

When made right, edibles should provide some flavor of weed, but not one that is overpowering. In fact, the growing edible market is focused to a large extent on finding ways to rid marijuana products of that tell-tale flavor, largely through the use of distillates and isolates, with mixed results.

Homemade edibles can often have a more noticeable flavor of marijuana, at times a flavor that can be oily, or taste like grass. One trick to get around this is to make edibles with strong flavors, either savory treats or edibles that are rich in chocolate, caramel, or similar ingredients. Also, if the recipe calls for discarding the plant matter after it has infused into the recipe, then that should take care of a lot of the weed taste.

Without further ado, here are two go-to recipes for single-serving cannabis edibles:

Cannabis firecrackers for one

This is a recipe that really couldn’t be easier. Firecrackers are simply graham crackers (or any similar sort of cracker) smeared with chocolate or peanut butter (or both) sprinkled with decarboxylated weed, and baked to perfection. They bring to mind s’mores, though they’re a lot less messy.

Step 1: Get your ingredients
  • ½ or ¼ gram of weed (or about half of what you’d put in a joint), or a somewhat larger amount of already vaped weed
  • Peanut butter, nutella, or any fatty sweet spread that you can bake
  • 1 half graham cracker or similar crackers
  • Aluminum foil
Step 2: Grind and decarb the cannabis

Set your oven to 230°F (110°C), grab your best grinder, and grind the marijuana into a fine powder. The finer the cannabis, the better it will absorb into the cookie when you bake it.

Take the ground cannabis and put it on a piece of aluminum foil or an oven safe container like a ramekin, and bake it in the oven for about a half hour.

Step 3: Slather and Bake the Cookies

Take the cracker and split it into two pieces like a sandwich, and spread peanut butter or chocolate on both halves. Then take your decarbed weed and sprinkle it evenly over the spread on both halves and then press them together like a sandwich (or a smore) and wrap in aluminum foil. Then take the foil-wrapped sandwich and place it in the oven at 230°F (110°C) for about 45 minutes.

Step 5: Enjoy!

With your single serving firecracker in hand, you can do some experimenting. Try eating half the first time and see if that’s enough. The crackers will keep well in the cupboard so you can always have another round later in the week. You also don’t need to go searching for graham crackers —you can also use Ritz crackers, Club crackers, really whichever you like, though the surface area of the cookie will affect how much cannabis you can put on it.

A hot cup of cannabis tea for one

A hot cup of herbal tea can be a relaxing, therapeutic, and invigorating experience. And when that herb is cannabis, even more so. And arguably the best part? Brewing a mug of cannabis tea really isn’t any harder than making a normal cup of tea.

First things first though — should you decarboxylate the cannabis? If you want the tea to produce a high then you will need to decarboxylate before steeping and mix it with a fat (because THC isn’t water soluble). If you would just like to enjoy the flavors, aroma, and terpenes of the cannabis, then no need to decarboxylate.

A cup of cannabis tea is also great because it’s very easy to experiment with dosage sizes from cup to cup, until you find one that’s just right.

Step 1: Get your ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground marijuana, decarboxylated if you are looking for the psychotropic or painkilling effects (you can include stems or trim in addition to the flower)
  • Anything else you’d like to add to your tea (honey, ginger, sugar, etc.)
  • A fat of some sort (milk, honey, soy milk)
Step 2: Steep the tea

Take the marijuana flower and any other herbal additives (such as dried chamomile) and steep in hot water mixed with your fat of choice for at least 5-10 minutes.

Step 3: Enjoy!

After the tea has steeped, remove the weed and add your preferred sweetener — or just drink it unsweetened.

If you’re considering making your own single-serving edibles, another good idea to make your own batch of a cannabis-infused fat like cannabutter or infused coconut oil, which you can break out whenever you want to add a dash of magic to a dish. A home infusion machine can make this easier than ever.

There’s something enchanting about cannabis edibles. About an hour or so after taking a few bites of an innocent looking cookie you can be taken downstream on a powerful, full-body high…
