How to Make Pot Brownies

Some Discussion...

The store-bought brownie mix that I use calls for cooking oil. I've found that oil is much easier to work with than butter because butter will burn much more quickly than oil. This makes extracting the THC in butter a real pain. I've heard various arguments for butter but the bottom line is oil will not burn as quickly. If you are using a recipe calling for butter, just make cannabutter and follow the rest of the recipe normally.

The next point I would argue is the most important part of the process: To strain or not to strain the cooked shake from the oil. I've read (and sampled) recipes prepared either way. It's really gross biting into a tasty brownie and getting little bits of shake in your mouth. If you properly extracted the THC out of your shake and into the oil you don't need the shake anymore anyway. It's just a mouthful of chopped grass. Bottom line: STRAIN!

One other point I should address is the quality (and quantity) of the cannabis used in the recipe. Most of the recipes I have seen call for A LOT (sometimes more than an ounce!) of weed usually consisting of "shake" or "clippings" or "trimmings". This recipe calls for around 5 grams of "the good stuff". If you follow this recipe with the recommended amount of ganja you will get a yield of 32 servings/pieces/doses. Not bad!

Okay, on with the show!

Here's your list of ingredients and equipment for your brownies…

Your favorite brownie pan
PYREX® measuring cup
A brownie mix that uses cooking oil
Cooking oil (not olive!)
An oven thermometer
A small pan and a wooden spoon
A "gold" coffee filter
An herb grinder
5 grams of weed


Instructions

Weigh out 5 grams of your finest ganja.

Image

Grind ganja.

Image

With a PYREX® measuring glass, measure out the appropriate amount of your favorite cooking oil (vegetable, canola, sunflower, etc.) as described in your brownie recipe.

Image

Pour oil into medium saucepan and heat at “medium to medium-low ” for about a minute.

Image

Add ground ganja...
...and stir with wooden spoon for 20-25 minutes.

Image

Your goal is to aim for less than a simmer. Finding the optimal temperature on your cook top essential. Too low a temperature will extract very little THC from the ground shake. Too high a temperature will boil and burn the oil. Since all burners are unique, start out on a medium-low temperature and use good judgment.

Image

When you are finished the oil will turn a dark brown.
Let cool.

Image

Place your gold coffee filter into the PYREX® measuring glass.

Image

Pour the entire oil/ganja concoction thru the gold coffee filter sitting on the PYREX® measuring glass.
Use a teaspoon (or rubber spatula) to scrape out every last bit of oil!! This is the reason we’are here today.

Image

When you are done you should have just about (if not exactly) the original amout of oil you added. If not, simply top off the PYREX® measuring glass with whatever amount of oil is required. Please note the dark brown color!

At this point we are ready to make our brownies. If you want to bake your brownies later, simply cover your oil with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until you are ready to bake. The rest of the instructions are followed exactly as described on the brownie box.

Hey Andria, I've got a question for you

I know you did space cakes recently and was wondering a few things..

First off, how much weed did you add into the brownies? Was it like a brownie mix from the store or something?

And how many pieces do you need to eat to get high??
