Weed brownies are the most common marijuana edibles. They can be made without needing exceptional skills. However, before you learn how to make weed brownies, there are a few things you must keep in mind. Here is a brief look at the basics of making weed brownies.
The most common mistake by people making weed brownies is to simply throw unprocessed marijuana into the brownie batter. The human body is not designed to digest raw weed. Throwing weed into the batter means you won’t get the right kind of high. Worse still, the taste of the brownies will be horrible. So, the first thing you need to do with your marijuana is imbue it with oil or butter. The catch here is it takes a special method to get it right. Simply throwing the weed into a pot will not do.
Right infusion method
Unless you get the infusion method right, your brownies will end up tasting horrible. You need to use the proper dosage to create the tastiest weed brownies. For that, you must know just what weed strength is right. That in turn means that you must first find out how much percentage of TCH is present in the weed buds. Next, you need to know the correct quantity of oil or butter. Last but not least, you need to know the number of servings you need to prepare. To get everything right, it makes sense to find and use an online THC calculator. This will help you use the correct amount of THV in a single serving.
Not an instant high
When you smoke weed the effects are almost instantaneous. However, after consuming a weed brownie the effects take time to kick in. So, be prepared to wait for an hour or two for the effects. Once you get high, you can stay high for between 4 and 8 hours. Your high is dependent on not just the strain used but also the amount of THC present in the bud. Thus, the second thing you need to look at when making your weed brownies is the THC percentage in the weed bud. You can change the dosage depending on the amount of high you wish to experience.
Make the mix
To make the brownies buttery and creamy, it is a good idea to make the mix from beginning. This allows you to use butter instead of using a pre-mix. The thing about using pre-mixes is you would need to use some oil. Of course, if you do not want to start from beginning, you also have the option of using brownie mixes. Whichever option you choose, you must make sure that you bake the brownies in an area that is properly ventilated. The aroma created can be pretty strong and so it makes sense to leave a window open or you can also think about turning on the fan or placing a towel under the door to ensure that the aroma does not affect others.
15 minutes to make the weed
If you wish to prepare 24 servings, then you need to set aside 15 minutes to make the weed brownies. In addition, set aside another 15 minutes to frost the brownies. It also takes between 25 and 30 minutes to cook the brownies and allow for half an hour to let the brownies cool down.
For 10 percentage THC, you should use 6.7 milligrams per brownie. For 15 percentage THC, you need to use 10 milligrams per brownie and for 20 percent THC be sure to use 13.4 milligrams per brownie. To this, you may need to infuse about five grams of dried weed into five ounces of coconut oil.
To make your weed brownies you also need the following ingredients. Start with some cooking spray and use whatever boxed brownie mix you like. You also need a third of a cup of cannoli and the same amount of water. In addition, use two large sized eggs which you need to beat lightly. Other ingredients required to make weed brownies include half cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, quarter cup roasted and glazed pecans that need to be crushed. Finally, use some melted chocolate (if you want a chocolate taste) and you can also think about using a crushed Heath bar.
The actual process of making weed brownies requires you to preheat your oven to 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Take a medium to large sized brownie pan and grease it lightly with cooking spray. Mix the eggs with cannaoil and water and stir this mixture till it is blended. Now, you can add your chocolate chips and pecans and make sure that the batter is spread evenly into the baking pan.
You need to bake the mixture till it is fully baked. One way to know the mixture is properly baked is by inserting a toothpick into the mixture. If the toothpick comes out clean, then your mixture is properly baked. After the baking is done, remove the mixture and allow it to cool for about half an hour.
Once the mixture cools down, you can cut it into 24 pieces. Take a Pyrex bowl and melt your chocolate in a microwave for about 20 seconds. Keep stirring the chocolate and put it in a microwave for ten seconds. Stir the chocolate until it becomes smooth and creamy. Next, take a single brownie piece and pierce it with a fork. Dip the piece in the chocolate and make sure that the chocolate is coated in a smooth and even manner. Take the brownie piece and put it on parchment paper. Do this for all the other brownies and then to add some taste, you can sprinkle the Heath bar crumbs on the brownies. That is basically all you need to know about making weed brownies.
Just make sure that you have some weed available that you don’t wish to smoke. Also, make sure that you never dust your weed into your batter as the taste will be very unappetizing and the brownie will also look awful. Just make sure you have enough cannaoil or cannabutter and use the right dosage to make the batter.
