One of the most well-known and appreciated desserts among Cannabis consumers are Brownies . Although they seem easy to prepare, the process can be complicated, especially if you are not already familiar with the world of cannabis products.

This is why we provide you, in this article, with a complete guide with all the information you need to prepare excellent cannabis brownies. Before moving on to the recipe, however, we will analyze the procedures behind them, and how to prepare two ingredients that you will need to prepare the dessert: butter and cannabis oil.


Cannabis brownies are certainly the most well-known food among fans of this herb. They may seem difficult to prepare, but they are based on very simple notions.

THC (as well as other cannabinoids) is fat-soluble, which means it can be absorbed by fat-rich substances. This principle is present in any cannabis brownie recipe, and will therefore need to be prepared together with a cooking fat ( oil or butter ).

The procedure itself is quite simple: once you have this cooking fat, you will only need a stove on low heat, a strainer to be able to filter the Cannabis from the fatty substance, and, of course, Cannabis flowers.

Once you have your own cooking fat, rich in cannabinoids, just follow the recipe below and you can serve some excellent and potent brownies.

Cannabis Butter Recipe

Cannabis butter is a staple ingredient in many weed food recipes: brownies, cookies, but also savory dishes like butter chicken. In short, it can be used to add a dose of cannabinoids to any preparation.

On the Internet it is possible to find numerous recipes for preparing cannabis butter, all different from each other, and it may therefore be difficult to find the simplest and most reliable one, especially if you are a beginner.
