Went into town the other day and ran into a friend of mine. He had been to a marijuana dispensary and purchased some brownies. He told me that they were OK but just OK! So I explained that it is so easy to make your own, even if you never baked before. I told him there are several ways to do it but the easiest is to go to the supermarket and buy a box of brownie mix and follow the instructions. Only thing is you add as much pot as you like. Here's where you have to make a few decisions. One, what kind of pot are you going to use? Two, which method of mixing them. First and most important, choose the right pot for you. If you don't want to get too stoned use swag,leaf or mediocre pot. If you really want to get wasted use the best bud that you can get your hands on. Again the high depends on what you use and how much.
Now here comes another decision. How to get the THC from the pot into the brownies and into your stomach? Easiest way is to just clean the pot, grind it up fine and add it to the brownie mix. It works fine but you do get some green grit in your mouth and teeth that can be avoided. Also the taste isn't the most pleasant. If you want to avoid the drawbacks of quick and easy extract the THC from the pot first. Again just grind the pot but this time render it in butter. Yup good old real butter. Melt the butter and saute the pot in it slowly. The THC is soluable in oil. Strain the green out of the butter and use it to make the brownies. I prefer the second method because you not only don't you have grit on your tongue and leaf in your teeth you get the benifits of the sweet taste of the bud (if that's what you're using).
I saw my friend again and he gave me a sample of some that he had made. He used the first method. Yes I had grit and leaf in my mouth but it was worth it. He made them with really fine bud. P.S. I use about one gram per brownie. Use what you need to get the results you want. Have fun.
