“Baked” Chocolate-Frosted Cupcakes that Deliver

“Baked” Chocolate-Frosted Cupcakes

This is a bit more complicated than some marijuana recipes, but the results are so worth it! With a little prep and some patience, you can make some blazin’ cupcakes with a kick. Here’s what you’ll need:

Tools:

  • Muffin pans
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cup

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of cake mix
  • Muffin pan liners
  • Container of your favorite chocolate frosting
  • Cannabutter
  • 1 gram of dabs

Directions:

Place your muffin pan liners in your muffin pan. Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on your cake mix box. Melt dabs over low heat, in your cannabutter (this adds the kick). Side note: usually, I find a one-stick equivalence of canna butter to a gram of dabs is perfect. There’s sometimes a little butter leftover after making the cake mix, which can be whipped into your favorite frosting.

Make you mix according to the directions on the package, substituting cannabutter for oil and margarine. The stronger your cannabutter, the more of a kick you’ll get from your cupcakes. Bake your cupcakes according, to directions. After they are finished and have cooled completely, it’s time to frost them.

Cover with your favorite chocolate frosting, and enjoy getting baked on your cupcakes. Be careful, as this marijuana recipe is no joke (you might think it is, however, after you get the giggles).

When it comes to making edibles recipes, we always think about baked goods, because heat is what activates those good cannabinoids in your foods. That’s not the only way to eat your THC, however. Making a cannabis ice cream recipe will allow you and your friends to try something a little different, as well as enjoy as a sweet, cold treat in the summer heat. The cannabis ice cream recipe still involves some heat during the initial process, but the final product is a frozen delight, which might also pair well with some warm, fresh edible baked goods if you’re feeling a like a little extra with your cannabis snack.


The best part of making cannabis ice cream is that you don’t even need an ice cream machine. You could certainly use one if you really wanted to get complicated, which might pay off for your tastes in the end, but it’s not a deal-breaker. We’ve found two great recipes that can provide you an easy way or a complicated way to make your own amazing THC ice cream so that you don’t have to search for a local cannabis ice cream shop.



This green ice cream isn’t actually cannabis-infused, but the matcha flavor that this ice cream includes might be a good idea, for your own cannabis creation!


The Simple Life


This first recipe makes cannabis ice cream using cannabutter, which, if you’ve been following us, you know is a staple in most weed baking. While cannabutter is not actually the norm for cannabis ice cream, it makes cannabis ice cream incredibly easy, because, if you do a lot of weed baking, you probably already have this lying around.


I call this a simple recipe because it’s honestly the least number of steps you’ll have to follow, to get some cannabis ice cream in your freezer. You just need to whip some heavy cream until it’s stiff, then add in your cannabutter and can of condensed milk, and you’re ready to freeze it all into ice cream. The recipe suggests using some vanilla and chopped mint, to create a mint chocolate chip flavor, but this bare bones of this recipe also allow you to replace those ingredients if you’d like to try something new.


The Big Leagues


Over at the Fader, there is actually a great recipe that can help you create some fancy cannabis ice cream, but you’re going to need an ice cream maker, and a willingness to do some home infusing that doesn’t result in cannabutter. The process is going to start out with getting your “weed cream” ready, which was actually a new term for me.


Creating “weed cream” is pretty simple, actually. You take two cups of heavy cream, and then five to ten ground-up grams of the flower of your choice, and heat those items in a saucepan, right below a simmer, for an hour. After that hour, your weed cream should be infused, and you can run it through a cheesecloth, to get all the chunky herb out. Some cream is going to evaporate, but if you have less than one and a half cups at the end, adding in some normal, non-infused cream won’t hurt anyone. Then, mix it all up with a hand blender for thirty seconds and chill in the refrigerator, until you’re ready for the next step.


Once all of your other ingredients are gathered and you’re ready for the next plunge, you’ll want to get a medium saucepan, then add all the cream you’ve just made, plus four cups of milk, to simmer for a bit. Then, you just need to turn off the heat and add all the other ingredients, besides eggs and salt (so sugar, honey, dry milk powder, and xanthan gum), and then whisk that mixture together, until it’s all dissolved (the gum doesn’t have to totally dissolve).


From there, you’ll just whisk your eggs and temper the frothy egg liquid with some of the other mixture, pour everything back into the original saucepan, and turn the heat to 173 °F, while making sure nothing sticks to the bottom. Temperature is important here because THC can burn if heated too much. Then, you’ll remove from heat, add your salt, put it in a blender for a minute, and strain into a container, for an ice bath. The final step is just throwing that mix into your ice cream maker.


A stainless-steel ice cream maker, which you’ll need for the more complicated recipe



Using this cannabis ice cream recipe will yield three quarts of delicious ice cream. You can also add flavors early on in the mix if you want. This is obviously a simplified version of the recipe so you can get acquainted with the level of intensity before you dive right in, so make sure you use the actual steps listed.


As you’ll soon find out, enjoying cannabis this summer can be a cool affair this summer, thanks to these delectable ice cream options. Get to experimenting with your own fun canna flavors, so you can perfect the startup of your personal cannabis ice cream shop!

With the marijuana edible craze sweeping the United States like the best thing since sliced bread, you may feel a bit left in the weeds. If you can’t get edibles from your local supplier, or if you just want to save some coin and whip up your own, you don’t even need a stove! Cooking edibles has never been easier, uplifting and delicious all in one. It’s easy to learn how to make edibles without cooking, by following these 3 DIY no-bake marijuana edible recipes. So put on your stoner chef hat and fancy baker’s apron, to get the most out of your marijuana edible experience.

Don your ganja chef duds


Canna-Oil First


Although these marijuana edibles recipes do not require baking, they do use canna-oil. Canna-oil is a prepared concoction you will need, and it requires heat to be made. This is the simplest recipe for canna-oil, as it only requires boiling water.


You will need a medium saucepan, 2 sticks of butter or 2 cups of coconut oil, a cheesecloth (easily found in any supermarket), a rubber band, and a glass container with a lid (like a small casserole dish).


Once you’ve collected those items, follow these easy steps:


  1. Boil water in medium saucepan.
  2. Add a cup of butter (2 sticks) or coconut oil to the boiling water.
  3. Sprinkle in marijuana (the amount here is up to you – the more you use, the stronger the result).
  4. Let simmer on low for 30-60 minutes (this allows time for the THC to absorb into the fat of the butter or coconut oil).
  5. Let cool down, and then pour into cheesecloth, which should be spread over your glass container (pushed down slightly in the middle, to avoid runoff, and rubber-banded around the edge, to prevent it from sliding off).
  6. Throw away cheesecloth and spent herb, then cover glass container and put in fridge overnight.
  7. In the morning, the fat and water will have separated, leaving a solid, waxy block, loaded with THC. Pop out the wax block (gently use a butter knife to wedge), discard liquid, rinse block, and when you need canna-oil for cooking edibles, simply break off a wax piece and heat or microwave into a liquid.

  2. In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and the cocoa.
  3. Divide the chilled mixture into 12 portions, form into balls by hand, and roll each in the sugar/cocoa mixture. Place on a sheet of parchment or waxed paper as you go.

The Kitchen - Recipes

In the world of eating your THC, the focus seems to be so much on snacks, or fully infused meals, that we forget about all the other possibilities for culinary applications. One of those great possibilities: edible condiments. No need to make your snack or meal into a day-long kitchen process, just to get it infused with some cannabis. If you’ve got these condiments around the house, you can make almost anything you eat into a cannabis snack.


THC Honey


This is a great condiment for every meal of the day. You can use THC honey for many baking uses, drizzled over breakfast, or you just can put it in your tea. For dinner, honey is great for making meals like honey garlic chicken, spreading on fresh bread with canna butter, or just giving some sweetness to any of your meats. Having a bottle of this around the house will make consuming your cannabis in a fresh meal much quicker and easier than making fresh edibles.

 

Honey provides a sweet option of drizzling some canna into your day.


There are a ton of brands making infused honey, but getting a THC Honey Pot Bear will get you that classic bottle that makes it feel like you’re a kid again (it’s a little different now, because there’s THC in the honey, but that’s the adult side of play, right?). You can also get a Honey Pot Bear with CBD if THC isn’t really your thing. For those of us that use CBD as medicine, this is one of the more enjoyable ways you can feel healthier.


Medicated Barbecue Sauce


If you’re into grilling, then you don’t want to miss out on this one. Medicated Barbecue Sauce is for medical use only, as of now, but if you’ve got your medical card, then this will be one of the coolest ways to start taking your daily medicine while preparing meals. This is a sauce invented by Tyrone Jones, and it’s their only product, as they’ve focused on delivering a solid sauce.


The sauce is made with 200mg of infused oil and is supposed to relieve “body aches, insomnia, nausea, inflammation, anxiety, muscle spasms, and poor appetite,” according to their website. This is great for chicken, ribs, burgers, or anything else you could want to throw some sauce on. This brand will also soon be unveiling their infused olive oil and steak sauce, so stay tuned for those exciting additions.

 

Fries will never be the same, thanks to THC Ketchup!


THC Ketchup


Ketchup is the classic condiment. Pretty much everyone puts ketchup on their fries, and a lot of people go as far as adding it to their burgers or hot dogs. Having THC Ketchup in the house will go a long way for your dinners, cookouts, or when you bring home fast food and want to kick it up a notch. The people over at Yummi Karma make a ton of different snacks, but their little THC ketchup packets are one of their specialties, and they are soon to become readily available. You can find the best places to get your own THC ketchup online, in the meantime.


Cannabis Sriracha


This sauce has become extremely popular recently. It’s quite spicy, but it has a flavor that can make any meal great (and can be used sparingly). Most people put sriracha into wraps, or as a part of Asian-inspired dishes, which means you can get fancy with your cannabis cooking, once you get your hands on this sauce. There aren’t many brands currently selling cannabis sriracha, but Lorax Labs recently entered a very high-powered cannabis sriracha into a competition, and eager fans are hopeful that it will be on the market soon.

Marinara Sauce


If you like to make pizza or go nuts for mozzarella sticks, then you’re definitely going to want to indulge in cannabis pizza sauce. You can hop on over and check out the different options at Clean Healing’s website. You can get this sauce is varied strengths so that you have a bit of control over how high you get. This also comes in a strictly CBD form, if THC isn’t your style. If you’re not sure exactly how to cook with this stuff, their website has recipes you can follow as well, making it easy to make a little cannabis pizza that fits your diet and lifestyle.


Medicated Hot Sauce


If you do love spicy food, you probably have hot sauce in your bag right now, and you put it on everything. If you want to turn that into a cannabis hot sauce you can enjoy with each meal, then Freddie Hott Sauce has you covered. Their medicated hot sauce has 420mg of THC in every 8oz of sauce, meaning you’re not going to miss out on feeling this one in your mouth and your mind.


As you can see (and soon taste), when it comes to edibles products, condiments open up a whole new range of delicious ways to enjoy cannabis-infused flavors with your meals. Whether you’re a sweet or savory person, chances are, there’s already something on the market that’s perfect for your particular taste buds.

The Kitchen - Recipes

While reading through The Kitchen posts here at Medical Edibles, you’ve probably collected several tempting culinary options, from basic brownies to gourmet recipes. You may also be looking for ways to improve other recipes, or simply curious about experimenting in general, with your own edible cooking and baking. If you’re ready to dive in and want to make your own edibles, there are several key secrets to getting delicious (and powerful) results every time. By heeding these important warnings, you’ll guarantee that the first time gets you results you can feel, instead of duds.


Don’t Use Too Much Flower


When you make your own cannabutter, you might have heard from friends that the more flower you use, the better. That is not true at all. You don’t want to go out and drop a bunch of money on flower, only to stuff it into a small cup of oil. Remember to use only one cup of flower per cup of oil. The oil can only absorb so many cannabinoids, so you’ll genuinely be wasting flower if you overdo it.


Don’t Turn Your Flower into Powder


When you grind up your flower to start the processes, some people think that the finer it’s ground, the better. It may seem counterintuitive, but keep it coarse. Just using a regular grinder – like you use when you’re smoking flower – will actually get you a perfect breakup for it. No need to get too fancy.


Don’t forget to De-Carb


When you make your butter, heat will release the THC. Flower right off the stem contains THCA, which, when heated, will release the THC we’re looking for. When making butter or cooking in general, this release will occur as well, but you’ll get the most bang for your buck if you activate it beforehand, in a process known as decarboxylating.


Decarboxylating is simpler than it sounds. Put your weed on a tray, put it in the oven on a low setting (somewhere between 150-240°F), and wait until the weed is perfectly crumbly. This will means it’s activated. You can also use a food dehydrator if you would like, or you can use flower straight from your vaporizer. Cannabis that has already been vaped is still activated and can be used for making butter right out of the vape, which is perfect.

Remember that THC has a Boiling Point


When cooking THC, you need to remember that it actually boils at around 314°F, so you don’t want to go too far above this temperature. Many online recipes will call for you to cook your creations at about 350°F, but don’t do it. You shouldn’t have to go over 340°F. If you cook your THC at too high a temperature, it will start to break down, leading to less potent edibles. So, be smart and cook it “slow-and-low”, so you’re not regretting it later.


Think Savory


If you don’t want to make your own edibles out of fear that they will taste too much like the actual plant, then try to mask that taste with flavors that pair with or cover it. Savory flavors will always work best, as opposed to sweet, but a combination of sweet and salty works also, if you’re making cookies or brownies. If you do opt for something sweet, both caramel and chocolate can pair well with cannabis, as far as taste goes, so long as you favor the salty ingredients more than the sweet. It’s very hard to make it so that you don’t taste any cannabis in your edibles whatsoever, but staying away from fruity or ultra-sweet flavors is an important first step when you want to know how to make marijuana edibles taste great.


Consider Potency


You’re going to want to try your butter or oils before you do any cooking. Do the math, to figure out how much oil you think will end up in one serving, and give it a whirl, before you start cooking. You may find out that you need to use more or less than your initial guess because there are so many factors in the infusing process that could throw off your calculations.


If you do want to make your creations more potent, consider using sunflower lecithin. This substance makes fats bond together better, and it is thought to make our bodies break down more of the fatty substance that is THC, yielding stronger effects. On the flip side, If you want to make sure that these aren’t too extreme, consider throwing in a little CBD oil. CBD oil boils at a much higher point than THC, so using it instead can help keep friends from getting too out of their mind or too anxious.


While cooking and baking both require a bit of precision, to get the science of solid results down, being aware of these simpler tips will help you save time and money. At the same time, you’ll be able to craft some truly satisfying dishes, with an added bonus of some sweet relaxation after.

The Kitchen - Recipes

Thanks to the growing recreational legality of cannabis, it’s much easier to get your hands on a variety of different edibles. There are brands adding THC to products you may have never thought of as edibles possibilities, and the market has grown leaps and bounds from the classic brownie. While it may be fun to try all of these products, for many, the real enjoyment comes from creating their own. Several benevolent THC chefs have made this even easier, by sharing their top marijuana recipes with their subscribers.


The Youtuber Njchef is one such talented cannabis recipe creator, sharing his recipes in instructional videos. His channel also includes reviews of various cannabis products that give you a taste of what’s currently on the market. He’s got some great recipes for marijuana edibles posted to his channel, and he takes you step-by-step through the method behind each one, so you won’t be left in the dark.


To be able to cook with cannabis as much as he does, Njchef makes use of a special product called the Magical Butter Machine, which helps him make his infusions. This simple product gives you the oils or butter you need to make a lot of meals, but it’s certainly not the only way. There are loads of online recipes for Cannabutter or THC oil, which you can use to create the butter or oil used in his recipes if you don’t have this machine. However, it’s definitely a tool that will make your life easier, if you plan on cooking with cannabis as often as Njchef is.


Once you’ve got your gear prepped and ready to go, here are some delicious recipes to get your canna cooking adventure started:


Tennessee Fire Fried Chicken and Waffles


This is a recipe for the spice fans out there. This is meant to be a pretty fiery recipe, starting with his oil-based sauce, but if you’re not a spice person, Njchef ensures that this will work and taste great without the cayenne he uses for an extra kick. After explaining how to make the chicken, he moves on to the waffles, which he advises using your THC-infused oils or cannabutter in, to really get that stony kick. At the end of this recipe, you’re left with a sweet-and-spicy meal that can be served amongst your friends, for a new (and fun) experience. Some southern barbeque with a little bit of cannabis? Now that’s something you don’t often get from marijuana recipes.

Butterfly Shrimp Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette


For this recipe, Njchef assures his audience that this recipe is hard to screw up (which is especially great, if you’re new to cooking). Starting with a quart of blueberries, he then adds in the balsamic vinegar, followed by the sugar. He suggests mixing those ingredients together, before squeezing in some lemon and (slowly) adding your infused oil. The lemon thickens everything up together nicely, to achieve the consistency you’re looking for in a dressing.


From this point, Njchef takes you through his order of adding the vegetables and other oils and seasonings, and, of course, the infused vinaigrette, before adding your shrimp and onion on top. This is a really colorful meal that you can make for yourself or for a party, and it’s a great way for marijuana edibles to move you into that state of THC relaxation, over an easygoing dinner.


Canna-Pesto Infusion


This simple pesto recipe is one you can keep and use as a great base for many different dishes. For those Italian food fans, this can definitely be useful to have around, if you want to entertain friends during a non-traditional pasta dinner. This recipe stays in the blender, so it’s incredibly easy.


You start with the olive oil and then add as much garlic as you’d like (based on your personal preferences). After blending these two ingredients together, it’s time for the basil. Because you’re using a lot of oil – both olive oil and infused oil – you may want to add a decent amount of salt, to ensure you end up with an excellent balance, rather than a strong oil taste. As always, you want to add the oil slowly, so that you get all of the THC. Once completed, you’ve got a pesto that you can use for all of your meals, sandwiches, and snacks. If you’re really feeling adventurous, Njchef even has a video for gnocchi marijuana recipes, in which he uses this pesto (if you need a little gourmet inspiration).


Home cooking videos are definitely changing, and these simple recipes provide a great starting point if you’re someone who appreciates good cuisine, as well as good cannabis. In addition to YouTube, you can follow Njchef on Twitter, for more cannabis cooking adventure inspiration, or keep reading along with Medical Edibles’ The Kitchen, for regular videos and recipes for a stony, delicious time.

If you love marijuana and you love food, edibles are obviously the right choice for you. However, while many edibles come in a variety of baked goods – including the infamous weed brownie – what do you do if you don’t particularly have a sweet tooth for chocolate?

 

Don’t worry, my fruity friend; there’s a new trend in the Cannabis community that caters to those that love a variety of fruit-infused flavors. In fact, there’s more than one way to get your fruity fix. In this post, we’re going to focus on teaching you how to make cannabis gummy bears in the flavors that you truly love.

 

Of all the gummy candies available on the market, gummy bears reign supreme. Thanks to this helpful cannabis gummy bears recipe, you can find your way to gummy heaven, with a sack full of custom flavors and colors. Each chewy candy has a personalized dose of cannabinoids, making microdosing easy, for those who may take their medical edibles at a slower pace than what’s offered at their local dispensary. In this way, you can explore what your body can and can’t handle, and even build up your threshold, one tasty candy at a time.

Create Customized Cannabis Gummy Treats


This healthy gummy recipe is a delicious way to get some of those fruit cravings covered, as well as enjoying your THC for the day, in one swift snack. These are easy to make, and you will quickly master the process if you follow the simple steps. To get started, collect the items you’ll need.

 

Tools You’ll Need:

  • Gummy molds
  • A medium saucepan
  • A whisk
  • A syringe or droplet tool
  • Plastic food wrap

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Cannabis tincture of your choice (You can use high-THC/CBD, or a mixture of both.)
  • 5-6 cups of 100% fruit juice (orange or pineapple, for example)
  • 4 tablespoons of gelatin powder
  • 3 tablespoons of honey, for a natural sweetener

How to Make Cannabis Gummy Bears in 6 Easy Steps

1. Pour the fruit juice of your choice into the medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and gently warm, continuously stirring the liquid while it warms. You only want it to get warm, not boiling hot. The gelatin doesn’t work if things get too hot.Also, the cannabinoids and terpenes can start to degrade with too much heat.  
2. Add your preferred amount of tincture and mix thoroughly. Note: You will need to do some calculating here. The quantity of tincture depends on how strong it was made in the first place. Usually, three or four teaspoons will do, but this will vary, depending on the effect you wish to have when you eat your gummy bears. Using good-quality bud will certainly result in a different product than a tincture made with lower-quality marijuana.
3. Whisk continuously, as you slowly add the gelatin to the fruit and THC mixture. Gelatin is notorious for creating lumps in the mixture if you add it too quickly, so take your time.
4. Add honey one tablespoon at a time, and taste as you go. You can opt for your preferred sweetness, to create candies with your desired flavor and taste.
5. Use the syringe or your droplet to fill the molds. This is much cleaner than trying to pour or spoon the mix into the tiny gummy bear molds, and you’ll avoid making a mess.
6. Finish by refrigerating the gummy bear molds for 3-4 hours. After they have set, you’ll be able to remove them and enjoy (with caution). Be sure to package your treats with a green cross, to avoid mix-ups with family and friends.





Things to Note, Before Making Gummy Bear Edibles

As mentioned above, you’ll need either a cannabis tincture or CBD oil to achieve your desired results. If you’re not too familiar with marijuana products, you can learn more about how to make your own tincture. You can also learn about the benefits of CBD oil, to find out more about how your cannabis gummy bears recipe can be a boost for good health.

Last but not least, depending on your desired results, the amounts you add to your mixture may vary. We’ve discussed THC in edibles before, so this article about creating the perfect weed brownie is great to reference when it comes to getting your dosage right. If your product comes from a dispensary, you can also check the packaging for a conversion chart.

Get to Cooking

As you can see, crafting your own edible marijuana gummy bears is super simple – probably one of the easiest edible recipes available. Even if you’re a beginner, you can try this recipe and experience successful, tasty results.

Impress Your Stoner Friends with a Full-Couse Meal of Cannabis-Infused Dishes

Do you host dinner parties for your friends that typically consist of a lot of time, planning, and stress? So much so that you end up taking a smoke break just about every hour, while preparing for the big event? And when your stoner friends finally show up, do they even have an appetite? Or do they also have to take a smoke break themselves, to even want to eat anything?

If any or all of these scenarios sound familiar, we have great news for you: we can help you reduce your stress and actually make your dinner parties enjoyable, from start to finish. By taking the time to create your own custom stoner cookbook – full of recipes that will not only get you high but will also satisfy your hunger – you’ll be on your way to host or hostess of the year. If you and your friends prefer edibles to smoking, this post is for you.

Cooking with THC Just Got Easier

You might be a bit apprehensive when it comes to creating visually appealing and tasty cannabis recipes, but cooking with THC doesn’t have to be difficult – especially when you curate your cookbook of go-to recipes in advance.

Here are several delicious recipes to start your cookbook, for a knockout Mexican-themed dinner party! Each recipe has a link to the source, so feel free to print out your favorite pieces and paste them into your personalized stoner scrapbook.

Start the Dinner with an Appetizer: Easy, Cheesy, Canna-Queso Dip!

Think of your group of friends: is there a single person who doesn’t love queso and chips? This is the perfect way to start your dinner party off on the right note.

You can present a big bowl of this cheesy goodness with a side of crunchy, salty chips, to satisfy everyone’s fly-by munchies, while moving around the room and mingling. This way, your guests don’t feel tied to the table, and they’ll start to feel that glorious body high before the main courses even come out!

Serve Up a Side Salad

Side salads are a great way to fit some nutritious foods into your meal, without having to do a lot of work. Although the lettuce obviously isn’t infused with marijuana ingredients, you can still cook with THC by creating an avocado-cannabis-infused vinaigrette to pour on top of your tasty side salad.

The recipe is super simple, too! This is a delicious dressing to add to your meal, especially for a Mexican food palette.

Two Main Dishes to Choose From

For a Mexican-themed dinner night, there are two main dishes that you simply can’t go wrong with: tacos and enchiladas.

A Dinner Party Hit: Pot Tacos!


Again, who doesn’t love tacos? Street tacos are a go-to when you have the munchies, so what could be better than tacos that give you the munchies? Simply add all the fixin’s on the side, and these pot tacos will have your dinner guests coming back for more.

Cannabis Chicken Enchiladas

Another favorite Mexican food dish is enchiladas. You can create a delectable chicken dish, complete with sauce, cheese, cilantro—and don’t forget the cannabis! This enchilada recipe will literally knock everyone off their feet.

Delectable Dessert: 5x “Baked” Flan


To keep the festive dinner theme going, you can stick to a classic Mexican dessert as well. Flan is already tasty, but it’s even better when infused with marijuana and baked five times. By the time you finish one serving, you’ll feel just as baked as your dessert, if not more.

If you don’t have any other cannabis-infused foods in your dinner line up, this can also be a stand-alone treat, as it contains regular cannabis, activated cannabis, kief, rosin chips, and infused coconut oil, to create an extra-potent dessert dish. Not in the mood for flan? For a more traditional end to the night, you can always serve up a batch of gooey brownies, which are the perfect way to wind down a fun night with friends.

With these linked recipes, you can start printing, cutting, and pasting your way to your very own custom stoner cookbook. The next dinner party you host will be stress-free and tasty, and you might even find yourself with some yummy leftovers, for a second round of relaxing.

If you’re an edibles fan, you know that there’s one go-to cannabis treat that everyone craves: marijuana brownies!



Most people shovel out the money for a great cannabutter brownie, but little do many people know, they are pretty simple to make at home, in your very own kitchen!

If you’re a regular smoker or would like to try your hand at homemade marijuana edible snacks, this article is for you!

We’re here to discuss the best tips and tricks to baking your best marijuana brownies yet.

The Secret is in the Butter!



If you’re thinking that making a bomb brownie that will have you baked is as simple as sprinkling a few nugs into your batter, you’re sadly mistaken.

The secret to making marijuana brownies that really deliver is extracting the cannabutter from your bud.

Not only will this help to reserve the yummy, chocolatey taste of the brownie mix, but you won’t have to chew on your cannabis to get that warm, fuzzy effect.

Where Can I Get Cannabutter for My Brownies?



There are many ways to craft your own cannabutter, but since this is a beginner’s guide, we’re going to make it simple for you to understand and execute.

You can cut out the hassle of separating the canna oil from your actual weed, by purchasing a batch of either the oil or the cannabutter from your local dispensary.

Either way, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get your hands on this important ingredient for your marijuana brownies.

Get Your Ratios Right!



One thing that can really mess up your cannabutter brownies is your ratios and percentages being incorrect.

This can throw off the strength of your brownies, by either making them way too strong, or disappointingly weak.

For example, let’s say you’re using your grandma’s tried-and-true brownie recipe that calls for a third of a cup of oil. You might assume that it’s easy enough to swap that out with a third of a cup of canna oil.

However, if you do that without understanding the potency of canna oil, you won’t be able to measure how much THC is in each brownie.

  • Is it Easy to Understand THC Potency and Ratios?

When you’ve taken the time to throw on your chef hat and apron, you expect brownies fresh out the oven that are going to give you the results that you really want.

You can ensure your brownies are a hit – and that they hit you the 
right way – by following a simple dosage guideline.

If you’re neither a baker nor a cannabis connoisseur, this part of making your marijuana brownies may scare you off. There’s no need to be frightened, when you have the internet on your side!

You can easily calculate the potency of your potential recipe with an 
online calculator.

  • Don’t Cook Your Brownies Over 350F


If you’re reading a recipe online that suggests preheating your oven to 420⁰F (as ironic as that might be), you should bypass that advice.

Any recipe that calls for 350⁰F or more will throw off the potency of your brownies. Temperatures over 340⁰F begin to degrade the properties of THC.

After you’ve taken the time to measure your canna oil and its potency, the last thing you want to do is completely destroy its THC properties.

How Long Should I Bake My Brownies?


As with any other recipe that calls for basic baking and cooking skills, crafting the perfect cannabutter brownies takes a certain level of skill and science.

Depending on the size of your batch, your cooking times could vary.

Just remember, keep your temperature below 350⁰F; slow and steady wins the race!

Once your cannabutter brownies are finished, be sure to share the love (but only with those who want the effects of a marijuana brownie).

label your edibles here, to let everyone know how great of a baker you are!
