Marijuana brownies are a tasty, simple and efficient way of consuming cannabis. Favored by marijuana aficionados everywhere for their ease and chocolaty taste, marijuana brownies are one thing every cannabis consumer should know how to make. Fortunately, the process is simple, and it's easy to make tasty, delicious brownies in your own kitchen in just a few hours. Here's what you need to know about making these easy edibles:

Ingredients Needed for Marijuana Brownies

  • 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused butter (room temperature)
  • 1 stick + 2 tablespoons regular unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 4 ounces baking chocolate
  • 3 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Grease the bottom and sides of a 13-by-9-inch pan with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.

3. In a double boiler, melt the baking chocolate over low heat until smooth and silky.

4. Remove chocolate from heat. Add room temperature regular butter to melted chocolate, whisking to incorporate.

5. Add granulated and cane sugar to butter and chocolate mix, whisking to combine completely.

6. Add salt, eggs, vanilla extract and cannabutter. Whisk by hand until smooth and combined thoroughly.

7. Set the whisk aside, and with a large wooden spoon or baking spatula, fold in flour until batter forms.

8. Transfer brownie batter to the greased baking pan, and bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

9. Cool for 40 minutes before eating.

Tips and Tricks for Great Brownies

  • Don't overbake. Overbaking can damage the active compounds in the cannabutter, changing the potency of your brownies. Plus, when you overbake brownies, you run the risk of ending up with charred chunks of chocolate, which nobody likes.
  • Allow to cool completely. Cannabis connoisseurs will tell you that marijuana brownies are best consumed when allowed to cool in a refrigerator overnight. Before cutting your marijuana brownies, remove them from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment. Once you've made cannabis brownies a few times, it's fun to experiment with different forms of cannabis. Rather than using cannabis butter, for example, you can easily use cannabis oil. Simply pick up a box of brownie mix at the store, and use the marijuana oil in place of regular cooking oil. To add an extra flavor profile to your brownies, stir in a generous handful of walnuts immediately before spooning the batter into the greased pan.
  • Be sure to strain. If you're using homemade cannabis oil rather than butter in your brownies, be sure to strain any cooked marijuana particulate from the oil before using it. This will make your brownies taste better and prevent you from getting a mouthful of cannabis particulate when you bite into your first brownie.
  • Store correctly. Keep your marijuana brownies in an airtight container at room temperature. To be safe and responsible, be sure to label your marijuana-infused brownies so that nobody unknowingly consumes one.

While making marijuana brownies may seem like the domain of seasoned cannabis aficionados, the process is simple and perfect for those who have never cooked with cannabis before. While it may take some time to produce the perfect homemade cannabis brownie, learning is half the fun.
