Recipes with Pot : How to Make Pot Brownies with Marijuana
One of the most popular recipes with pot is pot brownies. Some think that you simply add marijuana to any brownie recipe. While that may get the job done, pot brownies made from that kind of brownie recipe won’t be as pleasant to eat as pot brownies made from a brownie recipe with cannaoil or cannabutter, which is oil or butter infused with cannabinoids from the kush.
As an introduction to recipes with pot, we will start with cannaoil, which is useful for many recipes with pot, not just pot brownies. However, for these instructions, we’ll focus on pot brownies. It is easy to make the kush oil for your brownie recipe or for any recipes with pot on your stove top. First, decide how much of the kush you are going to use for your brownie recipe. For most recipes with pot, aim for half a gram to two grams of marijuana per serving, depending on the quality of marijuana you’re using and your personal preference. Many brownie recipes with pot fit a 9×9 or 9×13 inch pan, so look at the pan and decide approximately how many pieces you will cut your finished pot brownies into.
Once you’ve determined the number of servings of pot brownies yielded by your brownie recipe, you can decide how much marijuana you will need for the kush oil in your brownie recipe. For example, if you decide to cut your pot brownies into twelve pieces with half a gram of marijuana per piece; you will need six grams of the kush to do this. You would figure up the amount of marijuana to add in this same manner for any recipes with pot that you plan to make. Once you’ve weighed out the appropriate amount of marijuana for your pot brownies, grind it slightly in an herb grinder, then dump the kush in your frying pan. Measure the amount of oil that your brownie recipe calls for and pour it over the ground marijuana.
Use vegetable or canola oil, not olive oil for your pot brownies. Stir well while heating the kush oil for your brownie recipe on low. You can leave the kush oil cooking for hours on low, just stir it every 15-20 minutes to ensure no burnt marijuana. I would recommend at least 2-3 hours of cook time, and up to 12 hours is fine if you’ve got the time to do it. It is normal for the kush oil to turn dark brown while cooking. Once you’ve finished cooking, allow the kush oil to cool to room temperature.
Once cool, filter the kush oil through a coffee filter or a couple layers of cheese cloth to remove the ground marijuana. Filter slowly, as most recipes with pot are not enhanced by having to chew up chunks of baked marijuana. You can discard the marijuana, you will not need it in your brownie recipe or most other recipes with pot, as the THC has been extracted from the plant matter. I recommend filtering the kush oil back into your measuring cup so you can see if you’ve lost any oil volume before you add the kush oil to your brownie recipe. If so, top off the kush oil with vegetable oil to get back to the amount called for in your brownie recipe.
Cannaoil is flexible and can be used in many recipes with pot. Make cake, cookies, or any other recipe you might normally use ordinary cooking oil in. You can probably think of all kinds of recipes with pot to try out. Just make sure that any recipes with pot that you use cannaoil in are cooked at less than 380 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid destroying the THC from the marijuana.Making cannabutter for use in recipes with pot is a similiar process.
Measure the amount of butter called for by your brownie recipe into a pan, heat on low until melted. Add ground marijuana, and cook on low, while stirring every 15-20 minutes. Butter burns at a lower temperature than oil, so it is important to watch the kush butter closely to ensure you don’t burn it. Allow to cool slightly, filter while the kush butter for your brownie recipe is still liquid. Measure and add additional butter if needed for your brownie recipe. Cannabutter, like cannaoil is flexible and can be used in many recipes with pot, not just pot brownies. Imagine marijuana rice krispie treats, or letting your cannabutter solidify in the fridge and spreading butter infused with the kush on toast, muffins, or even other baked goods made from recipes with pot. Use your imagination, many normal recipes can be converted to recipes with pot, not just your favorite brownie recipe.
One of the easiest ways to make pot brownies with the kush, and to avoid having to get all the ingredients for a full brownie recipe, is to use a boxed brownie mix that you can buy in any grocery store. For variety, look around at the other boxed mixes and imagine which ones could be good recipes with pot. Any standard brownie mix should work for pot brownies, but be sure to check the required cooking temperature on the box to make sure it is under 380 degrees F. Use cannaoil or cannabutter in place of the oil or butter called for on the box and you’ve got an easy batch of pot brownies.
If, on the other hand, you’re a little more hands on and you want to make your pot brownies from scratch, the following is a delicious brownie recipe for fudgy pot brownies.
1/2 cup cannaoil or melted cannabutter
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×9 baking pan. In a medium to large mixing bowl, mix together the cannaoil or cannabutter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat eggs into the sugar mixture. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt; mix until uniform. Little by little, add dry mixture into sugar mixture, stirring well after each addition. Once everything is mixed well, pour into the greased pan and spread evenly. If desired, you can sprinkle chocolate chips, walnuts, M&Ms or some sprinkles on the pot brownies before you bake them. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool before cutting, and then enjoy your pot brownies.
Pot brownies are a good starting point for getting started cooking recipes with pot. Many feel that you get a longer lasting high from ingested marijuana than from smoked marijuana. Just be sure to experiment responsibly with any recipes with pot. The high takes a little longer to set in, give it an hour or so before you reach for another piece of any food with marijuana.
