Numerous coffee shops in Amsterdam have been selling weed brownies for ages. They are being sold under different names. Aside from weed brownies, they are also called magic bites, space cakes, and more. These treats have quickly become the preferred choice for many who want to get high without smoking weed.
Ideal for Both Recreational and Medical Users
Eating weed brownies is the easiest way for medical cannabis patients to undergo their much-needed therapy without having to smoke the herb. Since cannabis contains both THC and CBD, both of these compounds will be infused in the weed brownies, making them an ideal way for both recreational and medical users to partake on weed. In fact, brownies are recommended for people who are suffering from respiratory disorders making them unable to vape or smoke weed.
How to Make the Best Weed Brownies
Getting the right amount of dosage is the key to making the perfect weed brownies. They shouldn’t be too strong or the people who will be consuming them might get stoned, making them feel extremely exhausting and experience long highs that could last for hours. There are even reported cases of people who had eaten extremely strong weed brownies and still woke up very high even after sleeping it off!
It’s also important to ensure that the cannabis you’re going to use for the brownies is grown organically, which means that no pesticides were used in the process. These pesticides will affect the weed negatively, giving it a slightly foul taste.
Cannabutter is an important ingredient when it comes to making weed brownies. To prepare, spread the ground weed evenly in a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 30 minutes. Next, bring a liter of water into a boil and add 450 g of high-quality butter. Stir well allowing for the butter to fully melt and be mixed completely with water.
Add the weed and turn the heat low. Leave to simmer for up to three hours while stirring constantly. This should result in a thick and buttery texture. Leave the mixture to cool before straining it through cheesecloth. Make sure to squeeze it as tightly as you can in order to get as much butter possible. You now have your cannabutter, which you can use to make your own weed brownies! Make sure you store it in a sealable plastic container.
