What are pot brownies?

Put simply, Weed brownies are brownies that contain cannabis. They can be made with cannabutter or cannabis-infused oil. The THC in the weed is what gets users high. Everyone loves Brownies and weed brownies are no exception! Not to mention, they're a fun way to get high. Just be sure to start with a small piece, as it can be difficult to gauge how potent they are.

– Start with a quality cannabis strain. You'll want to use a strain that is high in THC for maximum potency.

– Grind the cannabis buds into a fine powder using a grinder.

– Add the ground cannabis to your brownie mix and stir well.

– Bake the brownies according to the recipe instructions.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to not overcook them, as this can affect the potency of the finished product.

What is cannabis decarboxylation and why is it necessary?

This is part of the decarbing process, its important when making edibles you understand why “decarboxylation” is important.

The No 1 reason for decarboxylate “decarb” is to ensure when you cook the weed, you do not lose its cannabis effects. Adding this additional step requires some patience….but the effects will be worth it in the end. When you cook the weed, decarboxylation takes place, it's when the THCA converts into THC using heat, which will allow the butter to have THC euphoric effects i.e. you get stoned! Some recipes say you can put dry cannabis directly in your cooking mixtures, but with a little patience, decarbing will make it more effective.

How long does it take to take effect?

Smoking or vaporized cannabis can take effect within minutes, edibles are different and can take up to one hour. The reason being…..Cannabis needs to be digested and metabolized in your stomach and liver before you feel the effect which is why it takes longer.

New to edibles? what dosage should you use?

When trying edibles for the first time take it slow and steady, it’s always better to underdose than over….Always start with the lowest dosage (1-2.5mg THC), and wait an hour, if you do not feel any effects you can take some more. Monitor your dosage with care.
