Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

A Blissful Adventure: Making Cannabis-Infused Brownies from Scratch

Cannabis-infused brownies, commonly known as "edibles," are a delightful way to enjoy the therapeutic and recreational benefits of cannabis in a delicious treat. Making cannabis-infused brownies from scratch using concentrate is not only cost-effective but also allows you to customize the potency to suit your preferences. In this blog, we'll guide you through the process, step by step, and provide you with a mouthwatering cannabis brownie recipe using cannabis concentrate.

Before We Begin

Before diving into the recipe, there are a few essential things to consider:
Ingredients: Ensure you have all the ingredients on hand, including your favorite cannabis concentrate. Choose a concentrate with the desired THC/CBD ratio to suit your needs.

Dosage: Understand your tolerance level and the potency of your concentrate. Start low and go slow, especially if you're new to edibles.

Lab Testing: If you have access to lab-tested concentrates, it's easier to calculate the THC content accurately.
Equipment: You'll need basic kitchen equipment such as mixing bowls, a saucepan, a whisk, and a baking dish.
Time: Making cannabis-infused brownies from scratch can take a bit of time, so be prepared for a leisurely kitchen adventure.
Now, let's get started!

Cannabis-Infused Brownie Recipe

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon instant coffee (optional, for flavor)
Cannabis concentrate (desired dosage)


Decarboxylation: Before you begin, you need to activate the THC in your cannabis concentrate through a process called decarboxylation. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Place your concentrate in an oven-safe dish and bake it for 30-40 minutes until it becomes a liquid consistency. This step is crucial to ensure the THC is active.
Infusing the Butter: In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add your decarboxylated concentrate and stir until fully combined. Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes while stirring constantly. Ensure that the mixture does not exceed 250°F (121°C) to avoid degrading the THC.
Prepare the Brownie Batter: In a mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well until it becomes creamy. Add the cannabis-infused butter to the mixture and blend until smooth.
Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour, salt, baking powder, and instant coffee if desired. Gradually add these dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring continuously until you have a smooth brownie batter.

Baking: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour an 8x8-inch baking dish. Pour the brownie batter into the dish, spreading it evenly.
Bake: Bake the brownies for approximately 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs (not wet). The baking time may vary, so keep an eye on them.
Cooling and Cutting: Allow the brownies to cool in the baking dish for about 30 minutes before cutting them into squares. This cooling time allows the brownies to set.
Enjoy Responsibly: Remember that the effects of cannabis-infused brownies can take 1-2 hours to kick in. Start with a small piece, wait, and then decide if you'd like to consume more.
Making cannabis-infused brownies from scratch using concentrate can be a rewarding and enjoyable process, resulting in a delicious treat that combines the pleasures of cannabis with the comfort of a classic dessert. However, it's essential to consume them responsibly, considering your tolerance and the potency of your concentrate. With a little patience and attention to detail, you can create a delightful batch of homemade cannabis brownies that will elevate your culinary experience. Enjoy your journey into the world of cannabis-infused edibles!
