Ingredients

What is the most important ingredient for weed brownies? Cannabis, of course!
When diving into a pot brownies recipe, you'll notice that almost all cannabis-based treats require cannabis butter or cannabutter. Cannabis butter is butter infused with weed, making it perfect for weed brownies. You'll read more about it in this blog about cannabutter.

Making weed brownies

What are weed brownies?

If you've never seen weed brownies before in your life, you may be wondering what's so special about them. Weed brownies belong to edibles, that is, cannabis that is consumed orally. Weed brownies are sweets that have cannabis added to them, and thus get you high. For those interested in making their own, finding a good weed brownie recipe is key to getting the desired effect. If you’re a newbie and excited to try this yourself, exploring weed brownies recipes for beginners can be a good start. There are several benefits to eating cannabis in the form of weed brownies:

  • Better for your health

Edible cannabis, such as space brownies, does not expose you to the harmful substances released from smoking. Your lungs will thank you!

  • Fat absorbs THC

A big advantage of pastries like cannabis edibles, is the fat content. THC is a lipophilic molecule, which means that it is easily soluble in fat. In other words: fat is the perfect medium for orally enjoying cannabis and getting stoned.

  • Best combo: chocolate and cannabis

Did you know that chocolate and cannabis have synergistic effects? Pay attention, chocolate lovers: chocolate contains a substance called theobromine. When combined with cannabis, theobromine creates a more pleasant high, with less chance of anxiety or paranoia. This applies to dark chocolate and raw cacao. Unfortunately, milk chocolate contains hardly any of this happy substance. 

  • Tripping on cannabis

If you are looking for an extra strong and trippy experience with cannabis that also lasts for hours, weed brownies may be of interest to you. They give a much more powerful effect than when you smoke weed.

  • No odor problem when consuming

​Eating a weed edible does not create the typical odor nuisance that comes from smoking a joint. I will add that baking space brownies do create an odor, so keep that in mind if you would rather not have people know what you are up to.

  • Using cutting waste

​Do you have cutting waste from (homegrown) weed in stock? Well, it might be a smart idea to make weed brownies. That way you get the maximum effect from your weed and don't have to waste anything.

Effects

The effect of edible cannabis is not the same as when you use a vaporizer or smoke a joint or bong. Even the most seasoned stoner can be blown away by the effect of weed brownies. 
Several users report that the effects of oral cannabis are more intense and more likely to induce a bad trip. This is usually because people don't know what to expect or are underestimating the potency of edibles. These are some possible effects of ingesting cannabis brownies compared to smoking:

  • Longer effects
  • More powerful effects
  • Psychedelic effects such as visuals
  • Auditory hallucinations
  • Strong body high
  • Euphoria
  • Confusion
  • Mood swings

How long do they take to kick in?

It takes longer to notice effects than when you take a hit from a bong. You can think about the ingestion of edibles as the ingestion of other psychoactive products, such as magic truffles, in the sense that your body needs time to absorb the active ingredients through the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, depending on whether you have eaten beforehand, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to more than an hour before you begin to notice anything. Keep in mind that in some cases, it can take even longer. So, wait long enough before taking another dose. We recommend waiting for 2 hours, before you take a second serving.

Different ways to make weed brownies

Just as there are lots of recipes for making sweet pastries, there are also countless recipes for weed brownies. You name it, and it most likely already exists. For those wondering how to make space brownies, the process can be as creative as you want it to be.

You can also add extras to your brownies, such as pecans, coconut shavings, or white chocolate. You can even coat the brownies with icing to make them extra festive! Incorporating other ingredients is part of learning how to make space brownies, and creating your own favorite treat with cannabis. Learning how to make space brownies can be a fun adventure, where you can go all the way.

Some people recommend deliberately not making your brownies too delicious, so you won't overeat them. You could add extra salt, to make them less tasty, thus minimizing the chances of overeating. Another  tip is to always have plenty of snacks in the house when you are going to space out. Then, if you do get the munchies, you can reach for something that doesn't have THC in it. Keep the space brownies out of sight, so your stoned mind will not be tempted to munch on them.
Below is a list of different ways to make weed brownies:

How to make hash brownies: discover the recipe

Are you curious on how to make hash brownies and what's the difference between weed brownies and hash brownies? The latter is a type of pastry made with hash. Hash brownies can be made the same way as the above recipe, but you will need to add finely ground hash to your recipe, instead of cannabutter. In case there are clumps of hash in the butter when you infuse it, we recommend you to filter it. An extra important tip: hash is a concentrated cannabis product and usually contains large amounts of THC. Therefore, it is extra important to pay close attention to how much hash goes into a brownie. How do you determine the amount of THC in your hash brownies?

Generally, 5mg of hash counts as a low dose, 10mg as an average dose, and 100 mg is the legal limit in many countries where cannabis is legal.
Hash typically has a THC percentage ranging between 20% and 60% THC. You can imagine determining a dosage is not easy if you’re not sure. As an example, if you want 5mg of THC in one serving, and your hash contains 50% THC, you therefore know that you need 10mg of hash per serving.

Weed brownies with butter recipe 

Curious about how to make brownies with weed butter? Most recipes with edibles call for cannabis butter. Without cannabutter, your baking will be of lower quality, because who likes having twigs and greenery between their teeth?

If you don't know how to make weed butter, check out our blog page. There you'll find a step-by-step guide on how to make cannabutter. 

This article tells you how to make cannabutter step by step, a useful skill if you're learning how to bake weed brownies. Fortunately, it is very simple. If for some reason you prefer not to use cannabis butter, there are other ways you can enrich your dish with cannabis. One way to do this is by using a cannabis tincture.

Vegan space brownies

Want to make vegan weed brownies? That's no problem at all. You can “veganize” recipes worry-free. Even if you have a milk intolerance, for example, you can make lactose-free weed brownies. Here are a few tips on how to do that easily:

  • Replace butter with coconut oil or vegan margarine
  • Replace milk with plant-based milk such as oat milk
  • Replace eggs with broken flaxseed or agar-agar (to bind your batter)
  • Go for dark chocolate, raw cacao, or choose vegan chocolate

Weed brownies vs. cookies

Are space cookies better than weed brownies? That's a fun question to ask an edible-loving stoner. The answer will also vary every time, because aren't they just both amazing in their own way? One advantage of weed brownies is that you can easily cut them into small chunks. The dark color also helps mask the green color of the weed. In addition, space brownies may be even easier to make than space cookies. As a final point, the amount of chocolate in weed brownies plays an advantage on several levels in terms of taste and effect. In the end, it is mostly a matter of personal preference!

Warning

Edibles such as weed brownies should not be consumed by people who suffer from mental illness, or are predisposed to mental illness, especially psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia. Keep weed brownies out of the reach of children and animals.

Even when you know for certain you’d like to try weed brownies, an extra warning is in order here: know what you are eating and enjoy edibles consciously. Do not use cannabis edibles in combination with other drugs or alcohol.

Consuming edibles such as weed brownies regularly will increase your tolerance for cannabis. Keep this in mind, and consume weed brownies responsibly.

Taking space brownies for the first time 

The most important thing when taking weed brownies for the first time is that you prepare yourself well for the possible effects and know what the right dose is for you. It is nice to get high with someone you know but keep in mind that your personal needs may differ greatly and vary when tripping.

Set and setting

Have you ever heard of set and setting? These are terms that you, as a psychonaut, should keep in mind:

Set: How do you feel? Are you rested, relaxed, and don't have an important exam or job interview tomorrow? Above all: do you feel ready to discover the effects of oral cannabis? If you're curious about how to make cannabis brownies, and feel prepared for the experience, then it might be a good time to enjoy cannabis brownies and you’ll likely have an amazing time!

Setting: Are you in a safe, quiet environment that you trust? This is very important, whether you are taking magic mushrooms, DMT, or space cake. The environment largely determines the course of your high. There are several elements that can positively influence your trip, such as:

  • Someone around who is sober and watches you a little, also called a trip sitter
  • Tasty food and healthy snacks 
  • Sufficient water
  • Soothing music
  • A diffuser with refreshing, delicious essential oil
  • A cup of warming tea
  • CBD oil

Dosage

The dosage of cannabis brownies is tricky, and there is no singular answer that will suit everyone. The right dosage depends on several factors, such as:

  • Weed strain
  • Freshness of the weed
  • Execution of the recipe
  • Tolerance
  • Metabolism
  • Set & Setting

If you don't know how much THC is in a weed brownie, always start with a smaller amount. Take 1/4th of the serving and wait to see how you react. When you're sure you’ve passed the peak, you can take another 1/4th. That way you keep it safe for yourself and you can find out what is a good dose for you.

In this blog article on everything you need to know about weed edibles, you can learn how to determine the amount of THC in edibles yourself.

Can you stop the high?

When the high gets too intense, you might want it to stop.
Is there any way to stop your high? The answer to that is: no, once your body is busy processing the active ingredients from marijuana, it is not possible to stop this process. What helps well is to keep calm and breathe slowly and deeply. Even if you are convinced you will die, remember that it is not true and it will pass. 

Tips & tricks

To make your experience as enjoyable as possible, here are a few tips I'd like to give you. It's nice to have them on hand the next time you want to make cannabis brownies. Here they come:

The best weed strains for brownies

Do you have all your new cannabis seeds for the upcoming growing season? If you grow your own weed, you’ll be sure to have delicious cannabis in stock at all times. Check out our Growshop and our Seedshop for cannabis seeds and harvest your own weed this year!

Every weed strain has unique effects, and some stoners swear by a particular strain. For example, you can often hear that Amnesia Haze is the go-to choice when it comes to edibles. But the range of cannabis seeds is so vast that there are bound to be more strains that are great for making edibles. The unique combination of terpenes and cannabinoids results in a different high and a different taste experience. Royal Queen Seeds has a great range of delicious, fragrant cannabis strains that are perfect for edibles.

How about Candy Kush Express? A sweet aroma, and Kush is great for relaxing, and unwinding. An additional advantage is the fast flowering time, allowing you to harvest super fast from this strain. Last, but not least, Ice Cream Cake from Barney's Farm is a perfect strain to use in your weed brownies recipe, if you love a sweet and complex aroma. This strain has an intriguing aroma with hints of vanilla and creamy sugary dough.

Make your own cannabutter or weed oil

Do you want to make your weed oil? It’s very simple to make your own cannabis oil or cannabis butter. As mentioned, THC easily binds with fat. This allows for better absorption of the active ingredients from cannabis. There are several ways to make cannabutter. Read our cannabutter blog to find out the best way to do this.

How to store your cannabis brownies

Once you start baking cannabis brownies, using a good pot brownie recipe, it might be handy to prepare a batch at once, so you have a supply. But what do you do with the rest? To eat everything as quickly as possible is obviously not a smart idea. 

Fortunately, you can freeze cannabis brownies perfectly. Pro tip: pack them in a plastic container and/or a freezer bag and write 'WEED edibles' and the date on it with extra-large letters. You can store them for up to 6 months. What’s more important: keep out of reach of children.

Conclusion

Making cannabis edibles like weed brownies? It is well worth the effort if you like a powerful high that leans toward a psychedelic trip. Finding a good pot brownie recipe is the first step in ensuring you enjoy a high that is both euphoric and lasting. The effects last much longer, are more psychedelic, and can produce a wonderfully euphoric intoxication. Moreover, consuming space brownies is not associated with the detrimental health effects of inhaling smoke.

Still, eating pot brownies is not for everyone. The chances of a bad trip are high if you don't know what you are eating, or are not familiar with the effects. So do your homework and keep it safe. Then chances are you will have a great time in Spaceland!
