Dosing Homemade Cannabis Edibles: Why It’s Nearly Impossible to Calculate Potency

Ingredients

  • 1 ⅛ cups cannabutter
  • ½ cup 70% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups caster or baker’s sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ¼ cup Dutch cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 24cm (9″ x 9″) square cake tin or 3 coffin shell brownie pans
  • Colored icing, gummy worms, cookie crumbles, or assorted Halloween candies (optional, for decorating)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease brownie pans.
  2. Heat the cannabutter in a saucepan over low heat. When half-melted, add the chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon until the butter and chocolate are completely melted and combined.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until mixture is shiny. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour into prepared tin and top with raspberries. Bake for 15–20 minutes and remove before brownies become fully set (do not overcook).
  6. Remove from oven and cool completely in the tin, then refrigerate. Once cold, remove from tin and cut into rectangles.

Add ghoulish icing designs, gummy worms, cookie crumbles, and candies to create a decorative brownie graveyard.

**Note: The amounts of cannabis butter and homemade cooking oil specified in our recipes are very loose suggestions; the actual amounts you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabutter or oil and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
