Marijuana Brownies are a delicious way to medicate and can be a super fun experience shared with your significant other. It tastes absolutely delicious and is a popular form of ingesting your medicine.
Marijuana causes a series of cellular reactions in the brain that ultimately produce the “medicated” feeling. Smoked or inhaled marijuana takes on a few minutes to reach the brain, however when eating or drinking marijuana, this process can take up to an hour. When marijuana is ingested in brownies or teas, the main active ingredient, Delta-9-THC, is transformed by the liver into a more psychoactively powerful Delta-11-THC.
To summarize, ingesting potent marijuana brownies will make you incredibly medicated. I want to make my first time bakers aware that the experience will be more intense and can last between 6-10 hours. It is recommended that you eat smaller amounts before indulging in the entire batch..waiting between 20-60 minutes before eating more. I know it will be hard, but you can do it!
When making marijuana brownies, there is an important step to complete before you become a master Chocolatier. One must first extract the THC, the main compounds from marijuana into an edible form. To do this, we will extract the THC into a butter mixture.
This is important step because THC is fat soluble which means it is stored in the liver and the fatty tissues of your body. When properly mixed with butter, the THC binds with butter fat cells to create the potent “medicated” mixture that is necessary to create “marijuana brownies” or “marijuana edibles”.
1 lb of butter (4 sticks)
2 Cups of Water
Marijuana-Depends on Quality
Directions for making marijuana butter
1½ cups sugar
¾ cup flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
¾ cup butter, melted
½ teaspoon salt (if using unsalted butter)
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (see note below)
You’ll notice the list of ingredients is very short. That means the quality of the chocolate makes a huge difference. The chocolate flavor is front-and-center — not the sugar, not the richness, the chocolate. Be sure to buy high quality chocolate.
