How to Prepare Cannabis Butter

Rather than listing the necessary instructions, we would prefer to direct you to this informative article: How to Make Cannabis Butter.
What we can tell you is that most experienced users prefer to combine an eighth of weed for every 1.5 sticks of butter. However, you may want a stronger or weaker cannabutter recipe.
How to Make Your Special Cannabis Brownies
As you embark on your cannabis brownies cooking journey, there are several ingredients you need.
If you like to bake, there’s a fair chance you already have a number of the following.
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup cannabutter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
What You’ll Need for the Frosting:
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
Making Your Pot Edibles: The Process
Once you prepare the cannabutter, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 175 degrees Celsius). Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan to ensure that your batter won’t stick and become a batch of brownie mush.
In a medium-sized saucepan on moderate heat, melt your butter and cannabutter to form a liquid mixture. Don’t let the combination sizzle for too long as you don’t want to lose any THC. Keep the heat on long enough to turn the buttery duo from a solid-state into liquids.
Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. In a separate large mixing bowl, beat in the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Make sure all of the chunks are smooth, and the batter is whisked evenly. It is a good idea to run through the mixture with an electric mixer. If you don’t have one available, it isn’t necessary.
Using a spatula, pour the medium-thick batter into the greased and floured baking pan. Get ready to start the cooking process.
Bake for 30 minutes if you like your pot brownies slightly cooked. Bake them for 20-25 minutes if you want them on the wet and soggy side. Test the texture of your brownies by placing a toothpick into the center of the pan. If your toothpick comes out clean, you have firm brownies. If you want them soggy, remove the tray from the oven when the toothpick has a bit of residue stuck on after insertion.
Once you’ve finished making your brownies and set them aside to cool down for about 10 minutes, prepare the frosting.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, cannabutter, cocoa, honey, vanilla extract, and confectioner’s sugar. Using a whisk or an electric mixer, blend all of the ingredients. Add the frosting on top of your brownies using a spatula after they are cool enough.
Cut your newly frosted and cooled brownies into palm-sized squares and serve. Enjoy this delicious treat that could get you feeling nice and baked.
A Useful Tip for Vegan Cannabis Brownies
For those who prefer vegan desserts, it is possible to supplement ingredients in this recipe with vegan-friendly options. The process of making these cannabis brownies will be the same, but instead of cannabutter, you use cannabis coconut oil.
Furthermore, you can add plain coconut oil or a vegan butter alternative. Finally, substitute eggs with a vegan egg replacement, which is readily available at many health food stores. If this explanation feels too complicated, here are some awesome vegan-friendly recipes.
Our Final Thoughts of Making Cannabis Brownies
These are easy to make cannabis brownies that’ll leave you feeling baked too. This delicious treat is perfect for those who enjoy classic go-to edibles recipes and are in the mood for something sweet. Yummy.
If you are unused to the effects of edibles, patience is the word of the day. While the ‘high’ may kick in within 30 minutes for some users, it could take upwards of two hours for others. If you eat a marijuana brownie, DO NOT consume more because of a perceived lack of effect! As long as you decarboxylate the herb when creating the cannabutter, you will feel something.
As for the best strains, dozens work well with edibles, but you will enjoy better results using flavorful weed such as Sherbet Queen, White Widow, or Wedding Gelato.
