Got some cannabis-infused butter that you want to turn into special pot brownies? This weed brownie recipe has you covered, with step-by-step instructions so you make the best cannabis brownies possible. The idea behind the following recipes is to add as much butter as possible and still end up with tasty brownies!

The best cannabis brownies start with an amazing pot brownie recipe!

The more of a cannabis taste in your canna butter, the more of a cannabis taste will end up in your brownies. Chocolate is one way to help mask the cannabis taste which is why brownies are such a popular choice.

If you want potent weed butter with as little cannabis taste as possible, the best thing to do is make your own cannabutter! This allows you to customize the dosage, and by using water during the process to filter out the bad-tasting stuff, homemade cannabutter tastes better than 99% of the pot butter you can buy at the dispensaries!

Lighter Cannabis Brownie Recipe

This recipe uses cake mix instead of brownie mix, which makes it a little lighter. Perfect for those who don’t want “fudge-like” brownies, but still want something simple to make! I personally prefer a lighter brownie to a fudge-like brownie, and I’ve been happy with this pot brownie recipe for that purpose!

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 cup (8 oz, or 2 sticks worth) cannabutter
  • 3/4 cup Evaporated Milk
  • (optional) 1/2 cup chopped nuts and/or chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Melt cannabutter in a large bowl
  3. Add cake mix, evaporated milk and nuts/chocolate (optional), and combine it into a thick batter. 
  4. Spread batter into an ungreased 13″ x 9″ baking pan. It will be pretty thin, but should fill the whole pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until edges start pulling away from the sides and the center is set.
  5. Cool in pan on wire rack and cut into 15 squares

Important Information About Dosing!

If you’re unsure of your personal tolerance with cannabis edibles, only eat 1/2  or 1/4 of a brownie until you’ve better tested your tolerance.

It can take 2-3 hours for a brownie (or any cannabis edible) to set in, especially on a full stomach, so it’s not recommended to eat more edibles in that period. You can always eat more edibles, but you can’t take them back! 

Note: The best marijuana brownies start with high-quality cannabutter! If your cannabutter isn’t great to start, your brownies won’t be as good as they could be. Learn how to make the best weed butter so you know the exact potency you’re working with!
