How to make the best cannabis brownies: Martha Stewart’s ‘to-die-for’ pot brownie recipe
Given that Martha Stewart is queen of all things domestic, her brownie recipes are go-to’s. And given that she has also baked brownies with Snoop Dogg, it’s not hard to guess that she’s amenable to bringing cannabis into the mix. Per the video:
Snoop: “When do we add the, uh…”
Martha: “The stuff?”
MS: “Later. That’s secret.”
This recipe for pot brownies incorporates sweet icing and chopped pecans, which make this soft, cakey brownie rich and delicious. Since Ms. Stewart ties her full name to this recipe, you know it’s got to be good. But is it the best cannabis-infused brownie?
How much weed should you add?
When it comes to potency, there are many factors that come into play when you make cannabis-infused oils or butter. If you are making your own cannabis-infused butter, be sure to try a small amount before you infuse an entire batch of brownies. Even if you are fairly confident in the potency of your oil, it is best to be sure—especially if you are going to be sharing with others.
If you wanted to avoid some of the guesswork, try using an activated oil, like distillate, in your brownies. The benefit of buying a distillate is that it is easily portioned out and has a specific THC or CBD percentage. So, if you buy one gram (1000 mg) of distillate that is 97% THC, you are getting 970 milligrams of THC. If 10 milligrams is considered a standard dose, you have approximately 97 edibles in that syringe of distillate.
The most important thing to remember when making your own brownies is to make sure the cannabis oil is thoroughly mixed into the batter. The last thing you want is for all the oil to be in one brownie. Make sure every brownie is going to offer a consistent and pleasant dose!
