Cannabis Brownies You'll Love

Updated: Jun 24, 2019

Just wait until you take a bite of these chewy, pot-filled brownies.

Why make weed brownies?

Here's a few reasons to start baking your way to wellness.

1. Making edible cannabutter brownies is incredibly easy to do! Plus, eating hash butter brownies and cookies has an effect which is stronger and longer-lasting than smoking. 2. You can give your lungs a break from weed smoke, especially if you have a cold or asthma. 3. The side effects of eating weed brownies you bake yourself is much less than those of smoking THC. 4. Don't like the idea of smoking hemp for medical purposes? Ingest it instead! You can achieve the desired medical effects, with a smoother onset and longer duration, for chronic pain, anxiety, or seizures with brownies.  5. It’s great for children and older persons with a medical marijuana prescription who will not want to smoke weed.


  • Brownie mix, any brand you like

  • 2 ½ oz. water

  • 2 ½ oz. cannabis-infused oil

  • Chocolate, melted down

  • Chocolate candy bar, crushed

  • 2 oz. crushed pecans

  • 4 oz chocolate chips, lightly sweetened

  • 2 large beaten eggs

Step 1.  Prepare your canna oil.

Canna oil is cannabis-infused coconut oil, olive oil, or other oil.  If you need to know how to make cannabis oil for brownies, it is very simple. 

  • First, take an ounce of lightly ground weed, bake it for 30 mins at 215 F (102 C) to decarboxylate it (activate it). 

  • Remove from oven. 

  • Then just combine an ounce of bud with 2 cups of your favorite oil and heat, covered, on low for 6 or more hours. 

  • Add up to 2 ½ cups of water to prevent burning the oil if using a saucepan. The important thing is to check to see that it is not burning, boiling, or smoking, but is hot enough to get the THC into the butter. 

  • Let it cool and strain out the plant material and you have your oil.

If you’re thinking how much weed do I need to make brownies, take your cue from the amount of canna oil you will be using and the dosing info in the link above.  If you have used an ounce of pot to make your canna oil, and used half the oil in your brownie recipe, you have the equivalent of 14 grams of weed. 

A large bowl smoked is 1 gram, and a normal bowl is 0.3 grams.  That means you have 15 to 45 bowls of pot, so cut your brownies into 45 pieces.  You want each piece to be equal to one bowl, a 1:1 ratio.  That way you can dose your edibles the same as you would smoke your bowls.  It will take many people or many days for one person to use 15 to 45 bowls of pot. 

In any case, remember how much weed you used is how much is in the oil and in the brownies, so dose carefully.  You probably won’t be eating normal size brownies, but starting off with ¼ of a normal size brownie or less, waiting two hours, then re-dosing at 2 hour intervals till you get the desired effect.

Step 2.

  • Preheat your oven to 165 C (330 F). 

  • Mix together eggs, water, and your canna oil and grease your 9 x 13 brownie pan.

  • Stir in your brownie mix, chocolate chips, and pecans until uniformly blended and set into your brownie pan. 

  • Bake for about 30 mins, or the recommended cooking time on your brownie mix box.

Step 3.

Now for the fun part. 

  • Melt your chocolate in the microwave (about 25 secs) and dip the underside of your brownies in. 

  • Lastly, sprinkle the top of the warm brownies with your crushed chocolate bar pieces, just to be extra naughty. 

Remember to cut into 20 to 50 pieces and don’t eat normal size brownies starting off.  Many people overdose from eating too much and re-dosing before the delayed effects come on. 

The Effects of Cannabis Brownies

The effects of cannabis brownies come on slow, over 1 to 2 hours, then lasts as long as six hours. You will experience euphoria, pain relief, and a happy mood.The effects are also described as slightly more psychedelic than smoked marijuana, more useful for finding meaning and spirituality. 

Do not overdose as that experience has not been described as anything you would want. We want you to be safe and happy, so divide your brownies according to how much weed you used, so that every little square only has 0.3 to 1 grams of potency (if you used an ounce, 1 oz = 28 grams, so double that for 56 squares or more), equal to one bowl smoked or less.  Then, test it by dosing 2 hours apart to wait for the effects.
