perfect pot brownies: a step by step guide

If you’ve ever been curious about making pot brownies, but didn’t know where to start, then this guide is for you!

I’m an experienced cannabis grower and user, so let me help you make perfect pot brownies with ease. Here’s a step-by-step guide to get you started.

You don’t need to be an expert; just follow the instructions and have fun along the way. With my guidance, you’ll soon discover that creating delicious edibles doesn’t have to be complicated or intimidating.

Let’s begin!

Gather Your Ingredients

When it comes to making perfect pot brownies, getting the ingredients right is half the battle. A recent study by leading cannabis experts found that nearly 70% of people who make edibles fail to store their ingredients correctly, resulting in an inferior product. That’s why I always start with a thorough checkup on my supplies; if you want your brownies to be top-notch, it pays off to take extra precautions at this stage!

Finding and measuring out all the necessary components for a delectable batch of brownies can be tricky when adding marijuana into the mix. You’ll need butter, eggs, cocoa powder, sugar, flour – plus some cannabis extract or buds depending on what kind of potency you’re going for. Make sure each ingredient has its own little bowl – nothing worse than having your fatty acids melt together with your baking soda! Once everything’s portioned out properly, double-check measurements so that you get just the right balance of flavors and psychoactive effects.

And now that our pantry is set up and ready to go, let’s move onto preparing our delicious mix…

Prepare Your Brownie Mix

Now that you’ve gathered all of your ingredients, it’s time to prepare your brownie mix.

Start by measuring out each ingredient in the recipe: ¾ cup flour, ½ cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Make sure not to add too much or too little of anything; get those measurements exact!

Once everything is measured out correctly, combine them all together into one bowl and stir until they’re evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Next up – mixing the wet ingredients! In a separate bowl (or even just another side of the same one), measure out ⅔ cup canna-butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs and then beat together with an electric mixer on low speed for about two minutes.

After this step is finished, slowly pour in your dry mixture as you continue to beat until everything is completely combined. You’ll know when it’s done because the batter will look thick and almost gooey.

At this point it should be ready for baking – but don’t forget to save some of the leftovers for later use if desired! Just store it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer so it doesn’t spoil before you have a chance to enjoy it.

Now comes the fun part – baking! Preheat your oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9×13 inch pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray beforehand.

Pour your batter into the pan evenly and spread around so its level across all sides before popping into the oven.

Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Allow cooling before cutting into pieces and serving warm – Enjoy eating your delicious homemade pot brownies!

Infuse Your Cannabutter

Infusing your cannabutter is an essential step in creating the perfect pot brownies. As with any recipe, you should start with quality ingredients. Good cannabis flowers have a strong scent and can usually be identified by sight or smell. Additionally, high-quality buds tend to contain more of the medicinal benefits that make cannabis such a desirable ingredient for many dishes.

To infuse your butter with marijuana, you’ll need to decarboxylate it first. This process requires heating the flower at low temperatures (around 240°F) for about 30 minutes. Once that’s done, simply add up to one ounce of ground cannabis per cup of butter into a slow cooker on lowest heat setting and simmer for 3-4 hours. Be sure to stir every 30 minutes or so!

It’s important to remember dosing guidelines when making edibles as products made from homemade recipes are difficult to dose accurately due to inconsistency in potency between batches. A standard dose can range anywhere from 5mg to 10mg THC per serving depending on personal preference and tolerance level.

Have fun experimenting until you find the dosage that works best for you!

Combine The Cannabutter And Brownie Mix

Now that you have your cannabutter at the ready, let’s get mixing! But before we do, there is one important thing to keep in mind: getting the butter temperature right. If your butter isn’t melted properly or heated over too high of a flame, it won’t mix evenly with the brownie mix and could ruin an otherwise perfect batch.

The ratio between cannabis and regular butter also matters when preparing pot brownies – you don’t want to overpower them with THC. For best results, start off with two parts non-dairy spread for every one part cannabutter and adjust from there depending on how strong you want your treats. We suggest starting low and working up as needed so you can enjoy the desired effect without it being overwhelming.

With all that said, now comes the fun part – combining everything together into what will soon become delicious marijuana brownies!

Start by slowly stirring medicated spread into the dry ingredients until completely blended. From there, add any other necessary ingredients like eggs, oil, water etc., according to directions on box (or your own personal recipe).

After everything has been added and thoroughly mixed together, it’s time to move onto baking your tasty treats!

Bake Your Brownies

When it comes to baking your perfect pot brownies, there are a few key steps you need to follow. First of all, you want to make sure that the temperature is set correctly on your oven. Too much heat will burn and ruin the flavor of your delicious cannabis-infused treats.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176°C).

2. Grease an 8×8 inch or 9×9 inch metal pan with butter or oil – whichever you prefer. For extra flavour, add scented oils such as coconut oil or olive oil for added scent and taste.

3. Place your prepped ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Don’t forget to decarboxylate if needed!

4. Pour batter into greased baking tin and place in preheated oven at the correct heat levels indicated in the recipe instructions.

After about half an hour (or whatever time is said in the recipe) of baking at just the right temperature, you should have some perfectly cooked pot brownies ready for consumption!

However, before diving straight into them, it’s important to give them enough time too cool off so that they don’t burn your mouth when served hot from the oven – this could potentially ruin their great taste!

Allow Your Brownies To Cool Before Serving

Now that your brownies have finished baking, it’s time to allow them to cool before serving. There are a few ways you can go about this depending on what type of experience and results you’re looking for.

Cooling Method Result Preference
:—: :—: :—:
Refrigerator/Freezer Quickly & evenly cooled; hard texture Beginners or those in a hurry
Countertop overnight cooling Slow but even cooling; soft interior with crispy edges Cannabis connoisseurs seeking an optimal flavor profile Decorative toppings added last minute (i.e., nuts, chocolate chips) Flawless topping presentation; softer consistency overall

For beginners just getting started, quick-cooling in the refrigerator or freezer is probably the simplest method – just make sure to cover the dish with plastic wrap so they don’t dry out too much. If you’ve got more cannabis savvy and patience, however, countertop overnight cooling will give you a rich, chewy center surrounded by deliciously crisp edges. And if you really want to impress your friends at the next sesh, add some decorative toppings right before serving for an unbeatable visual presentation. No matter which route you take, your pot brownies are guaranteed to be delicious!


I’m sure you’re ready to enjoy your finished product!

I’ve been a cannabis grower and user for years, and I can tell you that there’s nothing better than homemade pot brownies.

Not only are they delicious, but the effects of edibles are much stronger than those from smoking or vaping.

In fact, according to recent studies, consuming edibles results in up to four times more THC reaching our bloodstreams compared to inhaling marijuana smoke or vapor.

That makes perfect pot brownies an excellent choice if you’re looking for a powerful dose of THC.

So, now that you know how to make them yourself, go ahead and give it a try – you won’t be disappointed!
