You can enjoy marijuana in many forms, from smoking to vaporizing to topical lotions. But for many people, the easiest way of dosing medical or legal marijuana is simply eating it.

Edibles provide a wide range of options for users to experience the effects of THC without the need for you to know how to smoke. When handed a homemade brownie, most people end up asking whether there is any weed in there.

Though very strong brownies will sometimes carry a deep bitterness of raw marijuana, you can make pot brownies as delicious as regular brownies in the right proportions. Some bakers are in love with cocoa while others opt for chocolate ganache.

Both will give you gooey and moist brownies on their own, but a combination of the two makes them stand out and forms a delicious kind of fudge. Here is an exclusive look at the best way to make pot brownies.

Brownies bake up the same way as an extra-dense cake. The baking time and the pan determine the degree of fudge you will end up with. Prepare your cannabis-infused butter in advance and store it in a freezer.

Thaw it before use. You can make it on the same day the only thing is that you'll need to ensure you have three hours of butter prepping time before you even begin to bake your pot brownies.

That's why we recommend making a stock of Cannabis butter in advance.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350℉. If you have prepped your butter in a sous-vide bag, lob it into a bowl with warm water for it to completely soften before you mix the batter. Baking all brownie including pot brownies requires your standard wet bowl, dry bowl butter technique and you should hence begin mixing all the dry ingredients. The dry flour mixture includes flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
  2. Use a second bowl to combine the eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Whisk until light yellow and fluffy.
  3. Use a saucepan or a double boiler to melt the chocolate. Stir in the shortening of the chocolate until it melts completely. Put the chocolate mixture slowly into the eggs mixture and mix well using a spatula and fold in cannabutter. Before you aerate too much, ensure everything is mixed uniformly.
  4. Fold the wet batter into the combined dry flour ingredients. Sinfully stir the thick goop until it mixes thoroughly. Make sure you smooth out the mixture and smack it on the counter flat several times to ensure there is no trapped air inside.
  5. Place your mixture in your oiled brownie pan and bake for about 15 minutes. Rotate the pan and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the edges pull away from the pan. The top should have a shiny crust. Let it slightly cool for about 20 minutes.
  6. You can decide to cut it into about twelve pieces or keep it whole. Serve it warm. It is essential to know that one-inch square has about twenty-nine milligrams of THC, which is a potent dose so you should serve small portions.

Brownies are one of the common marijuana-infused edibles. The average time for onset of the effect’s ranges from about an hour to well over two hours.

This often leads to many inexperienced users to make the mistake of assuming the edible didn’t work because they didn't feel it kicking in, then they eat more only for them to be hit by increased and unwanted longer-lasting effects.  

So beware, be patient and give it time to kick in.  Especially if this is the first time you are trying edibles.  See how your body reacts.

When one smokes marijuana, THC reaches the brain within a few minutes and takes effect shortly. The high effects peak at around twenty to thirty minutes after you smoke weed and starts to wear off after two to three hours.

On the other hand, marijuana edibles take about two to three hours to attain peak effects after ingestion, and the results last for many hours depending on the amount ingested, metabolism, body weight, gender, and other factors.
