CBD oil vs CBD butter for your brownies
In general, using oil will make for compact brownies while butter will make for lighter brownies. Either way, this recipe works, as we'll be using cannabis butter which can be made with either butter or coconut oil for the vegetarian version.
If you don't want to learn how to making CBD butter, feel free to use your favorite CBD oil instead. You just need to mix the oil with the vanilla extract shown in the recipe below. This recipe will allow you to make approximately 36 cookies, so add the appropriate number of drops to achieve the desired dosage.
Tools you will need
- A scale, important for a good pastry
- 1 saucepan and a glass jar to make your bain-marie
- An 8 x 8 baking paper square pan, which you will place on your pan to facilitate the release of the brownies.
It is best not to use cannabis butter in the microwave, which is why we recommend using a double boiler to melt the butter or oil with the sugar and cocoa powder in the second step. . A heat-resistant bowl set over a medium pot with simmering water does the trick very well.
Finally, you will also need an 8 × 8 square pan and parchment paper to make it easier to take out the brownies. You can use regular parchment paper or invest in square sheets if you plan to bake the brownies on regular paper.

Roadmap and itinerary for making a brownies from CBD
Step 1 : Prepare a baking dish
Preheat your oven to 160 - 180 degrees celsius. Tip the easiest way to hold your parchment paper is to cut two sheets the width of the pan and you overlap them in a cross leaving them protruding on the edges of your pan.
Editor's Tip: The easiest way to hold the parchment paper is to cut two sheets of parchment paper the width of the brownie pan. Place a foil in the pan, scraping the corners to help it stay in place. Add a second sheet perpendicular to the first to cover all four sides of the mold.
Step 2 : Melt the butter
In a glass bowl, prepare your base. In your bowl, incorporate the cane sugar, cbd butter, cocoa powder and salt. If you are using your cbd oil replace cbd butter with plain butter or regular oil. Place your bowl in a double boiler by placing it in a pot of boiling water and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until your CBD butter is completely melted.
Remove the bowl from the heat and let cool until the mixture is just hot. Don't worry if the texture is slightly grainy; it will be smooth again when you make the brownie batter.
Step 3 : Mix the dough
If you are using CBD oil, add the appropriate number of drops to the hot butter mixture and stir to combine. Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Finish by adding the flour and beating the dough vigorously for 40 strokes until the mixture is smooth and shiny. Stir in nuts (if using).
Step 4 : Cooking
Transfer the dough to the prepared pan and smooth the top to create an even layer. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center is slightly moist with the dough. To make sure the brownies are finished, look for other visual cues: The center should be firm and should not move when you shake the pan, and there should be signs of cracking on the top.
Let the brownies cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
Step 5 : Cut the brownies
When the brownies are completely cool, remove them from the pan by lifting both sides of the parchment. Place the brownies on a large plate or baking sheet and freeze them for 30 minutes, until firm.
Using a sharp knife, cut the brownies into 36 bite-size pieces.
