Before you take all your ingredients out, some important considerations, tips, and tricks to make those perfect weed brownies for you.
How to Make Weed Brownies
There are various recipes that you can try and develop the best pot brownie recipe for yourself. We will share some famous ones for you to try.
Some recipes take their sweet time, while some are easy pot brownie recipes to make when running late.
The only problem with brownies is that you may end up munching on that chocolate goodness. And end up taking more than the required levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
So be careful in the weed amount you are adding to the brownie mix. If you are making marijuana brownies for the first time, our suggestion is to go easy.
You may be worried about how much weed to add. Hence safe bet is for the first batch to add little quantities and learn your way to your required levels.
Since cannabis reacts differently for every individual, start by using half a gram of bud from marijuana in a 20-gram brownie.
Also, avoid the urge of smoking weed while baking or munching on the first block of baked goody.
How to Decarboxylate the Weed
When consumed in food, a regular weed may be weak at first and take a lot of time to start showing its effects, or in general, lacks luster.
It is smart to decarboxylate the weed. Here you got 2 ways to decarboxylate the weed at home.
1. Decarboxylate in an Oven
All you need is a baking tray, a baking sheet, and some cannabis flowers.
First, preheat the oven and scrunch the baking sheet. Now spread the scrunched sheet again on the baking tray. The trick is to minimize the contact of the heated tray with the paper.
Now crush the flowers into the size of grains and spread them on the parchment. Place it in the heated oven for approximately 45 minutes at 225oF.
After taking it out of the oven, let it cool for an approximate half-hour. The flower will be golden brown and roasted. Place them in a jar or container for later use. You can always decarboxylate big batches for later use.
2. Decarboxylate in an Sous Vide
It is one of the amazing methods to decarboxylate weed without worrying about the smell or messing it up by burning.
After crushing the flower, place them in a zip-lock bag and seal them. Now fill up the tub with hot water and immerse the circulator in the tub.
First, set the immersion circulator at 203oF. Insert the carefully sealed bag into the water bath and leave it in for 90 minutes.
The best thing about this method is that aroma and terpenes are also locked in the bag, otherwise released in oven bake.
After 90 minutes, remove the bag and pat it dry with a towel. Let it cool for twenty minutes before pouring the contents into a sealed jar.
How to Make Cannabutter
Cannabis-infused butter, also known as Cannabutter, is an easy delicacy that can be used in your daily diet. The method is extremely simple and only takes little patience.
If you are new to the regime, we recommend making a smaller batch on the first try. And if you are an expert in making cannabutter, you can always make big batches and save time.
First, you need one cup of butter, water, and 7-10 grams of decarboxylated cannabis. In a stock, pan adds butter and let it melt.
Now add some water to avoid butter sticking to the bottom of the pot. After adding decarboxylated weed, keep the heat between 160-200 ºF. Rest is watching and occasional stirring for 2-3 hours.
Remove the pot from heat and let it cool a little. Now put cheesecloth on the desired jar and strain the butter. For a more clean transition, add a funnel, then put cheesecloth to avoid making a mess.
Don’t squeeze cheesecloth after poring because the residual plant will not add a good taste to the butter. Finally, set it in the fridge and use it as you need.
But definitely, the best way to make weed butter is by using a cannabutter machine.
