DIY Marijuana Brownies for Every Baker

plate with five brownies

Marijuana brownies have been a long-time favorite of cannabis consumers, but creating a truly delicious THC pastry is not as easy as you think! There are many factors to consider, including potency, flavor, and texture. You’ll also need to decide if you’re going to make your recipe from a box or from scratch.

Marijuana Brownies from a Box

If from-scratch baking is not for you, boxed recipes are a great way to go. When selecting your mix, look for a recipe that calls for oil as one of the ingredients. This can easily be replaced with cannaoil. Not to be confused with hash oil or other cannabinoid concentrates, cannaoil - or cannabis cooking oil - is made specifically for cooking and baking. You can make your own at home or purchase it from a local dispensary.

Marijuana Brownies from Scratch

If you want to try your hand at a homemade brownie recipe, cannabutter should be your ingredient of choice. Cannabutter is regular, everyday butter, infused with high-quality marijuana flower, CBD oil, or concentrates like hash or kief. It’s a bit more complicated to make, but it can be frozen and used for many more recipe creations.

If you’d like to make your own cannabutter or cannaoil, check out our guide to baking with cannabis.

There are countless recipes for the would-be brownie bakers to select from, both written specifically for cannabis or modified to include it. But here is our favorite recipe for simple, marijuana brownies.
