We made the full batch of the cannabutter recipe below, used our preferred amount in the brownies, and stored the excess in the fridge in a clearly marked container (emphasis on “clearly marked”).
We don’t mean to kill your buzz, but some adverse side effects of ingesting too much THC include motor impairment, extreme sedation, agitation, anxiety, cardiac stress, vomiting and, in rare cases, psychosis.
Not only will they taste better, but when you DIY, you’re also fully in charge of how much bud actually ends up in the brownies. This recipe calls for a full 1/8 ounce of cannabis, yet the process still works if you decide to use less.
This recipe makes 16 potent brownies. While they’re delicious, we don’t recommend you eat more than one at a time. If you’re new to all this, eat a small one. And be patient. It could take up to 90 minutes for the brownie to digest and the high to hit you.
Also, different strains of marijuana have varying levels of THC, so they can impact each person differently. Brunt TM, et al. (2014). Therapeutic satisfaction and subjective effects of different strains of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis. DOI: 10.1097/JCP.0000000000000129 That, combined with how long it takes for the effects to kick in, and it’s easy to take more than intended.
BTW, if you go by this spice conversions chart, 1/8 ounce of parsley (the closest cannabis comparison we could find), is equal to about 3 tablespoons. So, roughly 3 tablespoons of weed is about what you need. You’re welcome.
For those who don’t live near a dispensary (or a group of friendly college kids), here’s a low-key way to get your hands on safe, tasty edibles: Go homemade.

Yep, we went there. Tips, tricks, and a detailed recipe for making pretty darn delicious, homemade magic brownies.
- Combine 3 tablespoons softened butter, 3 tablespoons cocoa, honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 cup confectioners’ sugar.
- Stir until smooth.
- Frost brownies while they are still warm!
The more of a cannabis taste in your canna butter, the more of a cannabis taste will end up in your brownies. Chocolate is one way to help mask the cannabis taste which is why brownies are such a popular choice.
If you’re unsure of your personal tolerance with cannabis edibles, only eat 1/2 or 1/4 of a brownie until you’ve better tested your tolerance.
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Melt cannabutter in a large bowl
- Add cake mix, evaporated milk and nuts/chocolate (optional), and combine it into a thick batter.
- Spread batter into an ungreased 13″ x 9″ baking pan. It will be pretty thin, but should fill the whole pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until edges start pulling away from the sides and the center is set.
- Cool in pan on wire rack and cut into 15 squares
