Can anyone give me a good recipe for pot brownies or dessert? (Medical Marijuana)

Asked by NeroCorvo (1231points) May 16th, 2011 from iPhone

My mom was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She is on chemotherapy & has medical marijuana because she has no appetite.

Anyone know any good recipes?

I googled “marijuana brownie recipes” and this looks like it has some in-depth advice.

Wow- that is in-depth. Crap. We only bought an ounce. We don’t have a grinding thing. Looks like I screwed up.

Just buy the store bought brownie mix, I prefer the Ghirardelli brand.
Remove any stems and seeds and break it up into tiny pieces.
Then just follow the directions on the box.

This is what I do and it’s delicious. Plus it makes you feel amazing.

Easy, take about ½ oz. of high quality Marijuana, crush and sift to a fine texture.
Stems are okay, but should be finely chopped.
Add to 1 cup ( or you can double, triple, etc. the recipe.) cooking oil. Not olive oil.
Corn oil, Canola, Grape seed oil, matters not.

Mix Marijuana and oil in med. to large sauce pan and simmer, stirring frequently, for at least 1.5 hours. I prefer closer to two.
At a VERY low simmer.

The finished ‘product’ will have a very dark, blackend look to it.

Remove from heat, let cool, and strain through strainer into quart jar.

You can then use ½ cup of cannabis oil in your standard brownie mix recipe.

I would cut brownies into 2×2 squares and have your mother try the small size first.
Depending on her reaction you can allow her another ‘dose’ at about 4–5 hour intervals.

I do this on occasion as a purely ‘recreational’ creative ad lib to my already hyper-creative manifestation. lol

But..definitely helps me with stiff muscles and basic stress related tensions.

The oil will keep up to 3–4 months in the fridge.

Bless you for looking into alternative therapies for your mummy. :-)

Drugs have a purpose @pshizzle. Anything can be abused toward a negative. Life is about balance and is not black and white. Seek the gray. There is a lot of wisdom in understanding the gray.

@Coloma @KatetheGreat Thank you! I knew Fluther would come through for me.

My pleasure!

Agreed, 100%, there is a big. difference between abuse and dysfunction and medicinal/occasional usage.
I truly wish you the best in this time of bereavement and caring for your mother in her final days.

Somewhere out there years ago, I saw the original “Brownie Mary” recipe. I can’t find it. She was the woman in her 70s who used to make brownies for cancer patients in San Francisco about 20 years ago. She was frequently arrested for her advocacy of medical marijuana.

That might be it. Read the article that comes with it. This was an amazing lady.

@KatetheGreat So then can you use chronic to make it? I’ve always been taught that chronic doesn’t have enough THC to make a full sized batch of brownies and have a real kick. Do you just dump it in with the brownie mix, instead of doing the whole THC butter/oil thing? Mmm, Ghirardelli brownies are the best.

@NeroCorvo If you don’t have a grinder, you can just sorta grind it with the flat part of the knife – it should crumble pretty easily.

@MyNewtBoobs I use a little bit of oil within mine, but it pretty much has the same effect for me if I don’t go through that entire process.

You shouldn’t put the actual plant matter in the brownies. You shoul use the herb and make pot oil. Saute the herb in slightly more oil than the brownie recipe calls for. 20 min. over med heat. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Then strain through cheese cloth. Use the pot oil as you would the normal cooking oil in the recipe. 14 grams of regular weed or 7 grams of high grad. The brownies will be much more palatable made this way. They taste normal. Best wishes and thoughts to your Mom.
