Cannabis brownies are one of the most classic edibles that have been popular for decades. Everyone loves brownies, especially when they are made with an extra special ingredient. Incorporating your favourite strains of cannabis into your treats might take a few tries, but this type of experimentation is delicious and fun.
Baking with Cannabis
In order to get the best results when you cook with cannabis, you first need to decarboxylate the flower in the oven. This the process that activates the THC which makes you feel high. It usually occurs when you smoke or vape the flower. When you make your own edibles, you will need to heat the cannabis to cause this reaction to occur.
Don’t worry, decarboxylating (decarbing) isn’t hard. Simply put your flower buds on a baking sheet and bake in a 220°F oven for about 40 minutes and then infuse in butter to create cannabutter. This activates the THC so you can feel its affects when you eat consume it. Use the cannabutter to make the best cannabis brownies you’ve ever experienced.
Cannabutter can be made with any strain of cannabis. Try your favourite or experiment with something new.
The Best Cannabis Brownies You’ve Ever Had
