420 CBD Brownies

How To Make 420 CBD Brownies

Many brands have experimented with making CBD brownies. Needless to say, there are a lot of products and recipes out there.

However, why buy CBD brownies when you can easily make your own and customize them as you like?

Like the traditional weed brownies, we’re going to use oil or butter that’s been infused using CBD flower to make our beloved chocolate treat.

Any cannabis edible, whether it is made with CBD or THC needs a cannabis infusion in order to make it a weed brownie or other kind of cannabis edible.

These edibles are special because you get all the benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive high produced from THC brownies. Not to mention THC brownies can be particularly overwhelming and produce strong effects.

We already went over how to make your own CBD oil, in this article: How To Make Your Own CBD Oil

How To Make 420 CBD Brownies: Why Is This the Best Recipe for CBD brownies?

Making cannabis-infused coconut oil and cannabutter is key for many cannabis recipes. Once you have these ingredients, you will be able to make many CBD-infused treats. 

Making your own oil or butter allows you to choose the type of hemp CBD flower or CBD shake you wish to use, and how much. Then you can use the oil or butter for any recipe you wish.

CBD Infused Oil or Cannabutter? Which is Better For Brownies?

It’s up to you to decide! You can make both, but the process is very similar. Most cannabis brownie recipes allow you to choose one or the other.

Do I melt cannabutter to make brownies?

No, it must be kept at room temp.

Calculating Potency

If you have one cup of infused oil or cannabutter, you should end up with an infusion with 14 grams of flower. 

The third-party lab tests associated with the flower that you purchased will tell you the total amount of cannabinoids present in your flower.

For example, if your flower is 10% CBDA each gram should give you 80mg of CBDA (the cannabinoid that converts to CBD via decarboxylation or applying heat.) So, following this example, if you have 14 grams, you end up with 14 x 80 which equals 1120mg for one cup.

This recipe uses 1/2 cup of oil. That’s 560 mg. Divided into 9 equal portions, this recipe yields 62mg of CBD per brownie.

How To Make 420 CBD Brownies: Can You Use a Boxed Brownie Mix?


It is possible to add CBD to a boxed mix by using CBD-infused oil and cannabutter. Simply substitute the oil specified in the recipe with cannabutter, or cannabis-infused coconut oils. 

You can substitute the oil called for by Betty Crocker brownie mixes, which usually require 1/2 to 2/3 cup of vegetable oil. Instead, use the CBD oil or CBD butter you prefer. 

This applies to any brownie mix, so you can make keto CBD brownies and vegan CBD brownies.

Can You Store Your Brownies in The Freezer?

You can freeze CBD edibles. 

They can be frozen for up to one week before they go bad. You can freeze the edibles in waxed parchment, which is much easier than sandwich bags and plastic wrap. It won’t affect their taste. 

Also, it is best to keep them in an airtight container. The best container for your edibles is a glass jar. 

Moisture and oxygen can cause a decrease in the potency of your edibles, and may also lead to mold and bacteria growth. 

Because light can lead to the degrading of cannabinoids, it is best to keep your CBD brownies in darkness.

Be sure to let them cool first before you freeze them.

The best way to reheat them is in the oven, using a microwave may degrade the cannabinoids. 

Be sure not to overheat them as this can also degrade the cannabinoids and reduce the overall potency of your brownies.

NOTE: Baking CBD brownies will make your house smell like cannabis. However, the process of decarboxylating cannabis flower will create a much more pungent odor in your home than simply making the brownies.
