How To Make The Perfect Marijuana Brownies


weed browniesby Mike

When making ‘marijuana edibles’, you don’t just throw the marijuana buds into the food and chow down. The THC (tetra-hydro-cannibol – the main active ingredient in marijuana) must first be extracted into a butter or oil mixture and then added or cooked with the food, especially when making marijuana brownies.

My favorite marijuana edible to make is, without a doubt, weed brownies. This article will show you how you can make weed brownies and extract the THC using butter or oil, however, most brownies recipes ask for oil instead of butter.

The Perfect Marijuana Brownie Recipes

Marijuana Brownies: OIL Method

What You Need:

  • Oil (any other than olive oil)
  • 2.5 grams of weed per serving (an half ounce of dank or an ounce of mids works well for a full batch)
  • A Grinder
  • A Filter (coffee filter, pasta strainer)
  • Brownie mix
  • A Frying pan
  • A wood spoon

Making the Marijuana Oil

  1. Grind up the marijuana in your grinder or a coffee grinder multiple times until it literally turns into powder.
  2. Spread the powdered marijuana onto a frying pan. For an even cook – which is important of extracting the THC – it’s a good idea to match the frying pan to the burner size.
  3. Pour oil directly onto the marijuana powder in the pan, according to the amount asked for in the brownie recipe.
  4. Turn the burner on low, until until the oil and powder start to simmer.
  5. Turn burner heat to the lowest setting. Leave the burner on for 2-6 hours depending on how much time you have (2 hrs is average). Make sure to stir the marijuana oil every 30 minutes with a wooden spoon.
  6. When oil is done absorbing the THC, pour the oil mixture into a filter (coffee filter works fine) to strain all the excess marijuana out.
  7. The final product should be a musky brown color oil without any grass, stems, or seeds in it.

Use this oil to make the brownies by following the instructions on the brownie box. If you prefer to make weed brownies using butter rather than oil, continue reading.

Marijuana Brownies: BUTTER Method

What You Need:

  • 2.5 grams of weed per serving (an ounce of dank or an ounce of mids works well)
  • A Grinder
  • A Filter (coffee filter, pasta strainer)
  • Brownie mix
  • A small pot and a larger pot
  • A wood spoon
  1. Fill the larger pot with clean water and place on a burner the same size as the pot for even cooking. Place the smaller pot inside the larger one.
  2. Add 2-3 sticks of butter.
  3. Turn the burner on a low setting until the water in the larger pots begins to simmer.
  4. Lower temperature to a medium low setting to establish a near simmer. Make sure to keep the heater lower since the the water in the larger pot will heat up the marijuana’s THC which could destroy the THC, making the brownies useless.
  5. Proceed to leave the the burner on for 2-3 hours, or longer.
  6. Once done, pour the butter through a filter removing any seeds, stems, or left over marijuana bud.
  7.  Spread this butter throughout the bottom of a large pan.
  8. Pour the brownie mixture on top.
  9. Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to an hour.

  1. Thanks Charlie mate I think I’ll give yours a try. For my mum whose sick with cancer in hospital. Hopefully might make her eat some :)

  2. Way overkill and hassle. Grind your herb as suggested to a fine powder. When mixing the dry brownie mix, include the stash and mix the DRY ingredients thoroughly. Then add the water, oil, egg or whatever. Deadly. I have participated in bake-offs and it has be universal that the above method is equal to or better than day long prep sessions. The THC is converted by heat only – doesn’t matter if before or after.
    When filtering the pre-burn, you lose valuable THC in the discarded residue.

    Try it – easy!

  3. How about trying 1st, a little bit of oil, then, your cannabis, then the rest of the oil

  4. what’s the best dank to use for brownies ? I’m new to the scene and want to experience the true effects to help manage anxiety without scripts.

  5. I dident see Martha Stewart’s brownie recipe. All of the above sounds great, the do’s and dont’s of good cooking.
    As Martha would say “It is just perfect”.

  6. I think Brewer is a waste of skin also….and yes AZ is behind the curve which is what my post was pointing out. I point it out over and over again, every chance i get, that AZ needs to know that “marijuana infusion” is the SAME as cannabis extraction, and the “real world” knows that. You had a bee in your bonnet over a statement on a brownie recipe? Come on….Hope you are having a better day!

  7. Hey DUMB A$$ I’m not menopausal, due to cancer everything was removed 14 yrs ago. Also how would we know it’s sarcasm? It’s a statement, not a reply to anyone’s post. I lived in AZ for a year in 1990 and I found that most of you are below the learning curve. You’ll never be a state that will have the right to marijuana legality, because you keep voting that idiot of a governor back into office.
