If you experience increased hunger after smoking weed and prefer a discreet way to enjoy cannabis, making pot brownies can be a great option. Pot brownies are a popular edible that combines deliciousness with a hint of THC, satisfying both your craving for weed and your appetite.
You don’t need to be a professional baker to create this tasty treat. It simply involves enhancing an ordinary brownie recipe by incorporating fresh herbs. However, instead of directly adding cannabis buds to the batter, pot brownies are made using cannabis-infused oil or butter. This allows the THC and trichomes to be extracted and gives your brownies a buzzing effect.
Learning how to make pot brownies not only introduces you to a new dessert but also provides you with cooking aids, such as cannabis-infused oil or butter, that can be used in other meals and recipes as well.

3/4 cup of cannabis butter or cannabis-infused oil
4 ounces of dark chocolate (60 to 70 percent cacao)
4 ounces of additional dark chocolate
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F before preparing the batter.
In a saucepan, melt the cannabis butter or heat the cannabis oil over medium heat. Add half of the dark chocolate, reserving the other half for later use in the brownie batter. Stir until the mixture is well combined, then remove the pan from the heat. Allow the chocolate to cool for 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder and flour. Add the vanilla extract and salt, and whisk the dry ingredients together.
In another bowl, beat the eggs and pour them into the dry mixture. Pour in the melted chocolate mixture, and whisk all the ingredients until you have a smooth and thick batter.
Grease your baking pan with cannabis butter or cannabis-infused oil, and pour the batter into the pan.
Sprinkle the remaining dark chocolate on top of the pot brownie mixture.
Bake the brownies in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
To check if the pot brownies are ready, insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, they are done. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes.
Cut the pot brownies into 12 squares, and enjoy them warm or at room temperature.
