Common Mistakes in Preparing Marijuana Brownies
Undeniably, everyone loves to eat. However, not everyone wants to cook; or even loves to cook.
No matter what the circumstance is, getting into the kitchen is always a satisfying task— you
know what you eat.
Certainly, there are important matters at hand before you start your work on the kitchen. Are my
ingredients fresh? Do I have enough tools? We may have different preferences when it comes to
cooking. Nevertheless, cooking food and preparing your edibles are no different— there are
things we must avoid in preparing marijuana brownies.
We listed a few things to avoid before having your delectable marijuana brownies:
1. You do not need to measure
You cannot just throw any ingredient into the mixing bowl and expect to have good tasting
marijuana brownies. Just like baking your regular cake or cookies, you have to keep everything
on precise measurements. More importantly, marijuana dosage (or commonly known as THC
dosage) in your brownies depends on your tolerance so it is important to know your limits. If you
look at the brighter side of marijuana legalization, this also sets standardization so the edibles
industry is also facing regulatory requirements. For one, edibles manufacturers in California are
required to place the THC dosage on their labels so consumers are aware.
2. Overgrinding brings out more of marijuana
It is commonly believed that finely grinding the marijuana allows you to bring out the best in it.
Sad to say, this is a common mistake. If you want better tasting edibles, avoid overgrinding your
marijuana, as the important extraction lies in its leaves and not what is in them.
In addition to this, cannabis butter or marijuana butter (whichever you prefer calling it) is
important in preparing edibles, more importantly in marijuana brownies. Cannabis butter brings
out the best from marijuana. This is simply a mix of your melted butter and your grounded weed.
3. Cooking at a very high temperature
THC starts to break down temperatures that exceed 392 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the main
reason why most experts would recommend adding a little bit of water to your infusions, in order
to lower down the temperature and not reach the boiling point quickly.
In making marijuana brownies, it is important to remember to always put the medicated part
inside the batter. Infused marijuana will turn bad when exposed to direct heat, such as in frying
or even sautéing. When baking, you can prepare food in an oven up to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
4. Less is always more!
This principle is applicable to all those mentioned above. When it comes to dosage, it is
unnecessary to have more than what you can handle. You do not want not to savor the effects of
marijuana brownies, don’t you? You must keep an eye of your marijuana intake, especially if it
is your first time. The effects may take a few hours, and time and dosage varies.
In a nutshell, the most important thing in preparing your marijuana brownies is keeping
everything in moderation— from dosage, measurement of your ingredients, grinding and
infusing, and the amount of heat you use in cooking. It all takes practice before you come up
with your own recipe.
