  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour: standard white AP flour mixture, nothing fancy

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt: or more if you like saltier

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder: NOT BAKING SODA

  • 1/2 cup cannabis butter: this has to be prepared ahead of time. Check out this cannabutter recipe here. This should be either melted butter or room-temperature butter.

  • 1 cup sugar: (can be replaced for cannabis-infused sugar)

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar: if you don't have any, replace it with white granulated sugar. one and one-half cups altogether

  • Two large eggs: preferably fresh

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract: for a pleasant taste

  • Toppings (optional): you could add nuts, caramel, dark chocolate, sea salt, or chocolate chips if you want. My personal favorite... Banana.

  • Other infusion options: check out the Alternate marijuana infusion options below

Step by Step for My Marijuana Brownies

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 f or 175 c. properly grease an 8x8inch or a 20x20cm metal brownie pan and set it aside. You can use cannabutter for greasing if you'd like. Or cooking spray.

  • Step 2: Get a medium-sized bowl; sift the dry ingredients into the bowl and mix. The dry ingredients include flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.

  • Step 3: Get a large bowl and cream the cannabutter, white sugar, and brown sugar. A stand mixer is necessary to whip these properly. (I mean, these are the best marijuana brownies I know).

  • Step 4: add the eggs and vanilla extract to the creamed sugar.

  • Step 5: cream the sugar mix for an additional minute. The mixture should lighten up a bit.

  • Step 6: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients

  • Step 7: whip out the stand mixer, and mix on low speed until it looks like a gooey chocolate mixture

  • Step 8: Transfer the brownie batter to the greased baking pan. Gently spread the batter evenly.

  • Step 9: If you have any extra toppings, add them now. Chocolate chips, caramel, nuts, etc. Banana???

  • Step 10: Place the pan in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Check on it often after 20 minutes, as ovens and your preferred consistencies may vary.

  • Step 11: Let them cool for about an hour

  • Step 12: Enjoy the most delicious cannabis brownies you have ever had. Again, these are super delicious brownies. Wow.

How to Store Pot Brownies

In short, the same as regular brownies.

For those who don't know, Store them in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature. You can eat them within seven days. After those seven days, make sure by smell and taste. If they taste somewhat off, throw them out.

If you feel like saving them, you could wrap them in parchment paper and freeze them almost indefinitely. Of course, this has to be done within seven days.

Cannabis Concentrates

Cannabis concentrates have to be infused with oil, unlike cannabutter which is infused with butter. So we use cannabis concentrates to make cannabis oils. It tastes delicious, btw.

Cannabis coconut oil

This is a great option if you are dairy-free. It is also vegan and can be used in various cannabis recipes.

It works awesome for these homemade weed brownies. In addition, cannabis oil has a good shelf life.

Cannabis Olive oil

Yes, this is possible. This is also plant-based and dairy-free. It can be used in almost all marijuana food recipes. This will leave you with an oliveish taste and extra chewy pot brownies.

If you prefer cakey brownies, regular butter is better. However, Canna oil truly works well and has a nice shelf life.

Cannabis-Infused Sugar

As stated previously, you can swap out the sugar for cannabis-infused sugar. Recipe here. You can't go wrong with infused sugar in this pot brownies recipe.

half cup, cannabis sugar

Leftover cannabis pulp

If you desire, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of leftover cannabis pulp to your brownie mix. Add this to the chocolate mixture as an extra ingredient. This may alter the texture of your marijuana brownies.

This plant matter can be very fibrous, so make sure it is the right consistency before adding it.

Decarboxylated cannabis

You could add decarbed weed or decarbed kief into this recipe. Just mix it with the flour mixture. This may end up leaving a strong taste. It may mask the chocolate flavor.


Can I use a store-bought brownie mix?

Yes, you can. The only thing you would need to add to the store-bought brownie mix is the cannabutter recipe or one of the oils.

Secrets to Make Boxed Brownies Taste Delicious

Try these to spice up your brownie mix to get an even better result.

  • Swap out any amount of the water for hot coffee. If you replace all the water, it will taste very coffee-ish. I would recommend using 1/3 strong coffee and 2/3 water.

  • If looking for more of a cake mixture, use butter instead of oil. In short, the butter will help aerate the batter, causing it to rise better. If you prefer fudgy, stick with oil.

  • Replace the egg-white weight with egg yolk if you prefer fudgy. Less rise, more fudge.

  • Sea salt flakes! Sprinkle some on top after it has come out of the oven. This will balance out the sweetness.

  • Nuts. When your brownies are halfway cooked, sprinkle in any nut of your choice. This will cause a semi-top layer of nuts. Optionally mix them into the batter before cooking for a more even spread.

How much weed should I use for my cannabutter?

This is extensively covered in the guide on how to make cannabis-infused butter. It all comes down to how much bud you're comfortable with and how much thc% your weed has. Tell your local dispensary about your brownie plans, and they will help you!

This recipe calls for as much as you're comfortable with. If you plan to make more brownies shortly or other foods with cannabutter, make more than you need today.

Always remember, how much cannabis YOU consume is up to you. If it is your first time getting high, check out this post.

What kind of high should I expect?

Not the same type of high as when smoking weed. When ingesting thc, the effects can be quite different. Many cannabis users have never had pot brownies or any other edible. The effects may last for much longer and be sort of psychedelic.

Cannabis edibles are not to be taken lightly. They may also take time to kick in, so be patient and dose low for the first times until you get a good feel for the edible brownies experience.

Good luck!

Enjoy your weed brownie! I hope they make your day! If you haven't already, get out your baking pan and start baking. I hope you have enjoyed my guide on making easy pot brownies. Cannabis flower man out!
