The Dank Brownie Chronicles: A Deep Dive into Cannabis-Infused Brownies

Brownies are a dessert staple, loved universally for their chocolatey goodness. But when you introduce cannabis into the mix, they’re suddenly a lot more intriguing, offering a delightful high along with their sweet taste. Enter the ‘DANK’ brownies – a recipe that has taken the internet by storm and spawned a multitude of opinions.

The Basic Recipe: Here’s the basic rundown:

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 box brownie mix (and whatever else it requires)
    • 28g of DANK cannabis buds
  • Directions:
    1. Begin by breaking up the buds coarsely.
    2. Double the quantity of oil indicated on the brownie mix box and combine it with the cannabis in a saucepan.
    3. Simmer over medium-low heat for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
    4. Use a cheese cloth (folded four times) to strain the mixture, ensuring you squeeze out all the oil.
    5. Allow the oil to cool to room temperature.
    6. Proceed as per the brownie mix instructions, but use ALL the cannabis oil you’ve prepared.
    7. Add an additional egg for a fluffier texture, as the oil can make it a bit dense.
    8. Consider fudge or peanut butter as a topping for an enhanced flavor.

Users Weigh In:

  • The consensus is varied. Some praise the potency of the brownies, claiming they are “sooo effin fire”. Another user tried a variant with the Betty Crocker mix and found 28g too overpowering for her friends’ tastes, while 14g was just right.
  • Then there’s the debate on the method itself. One user suggested a double boiler method to maintain a consistent temperature. Others vouched for cannabutter as a more flavorful and efficient option.
  • On the topic of the quantity, several users felt using an entire ounce (28g) of high-quality cannabis for brownies could be wasteful. Yet, some believed that there is no need for prolonged cooking, while others insisted on the importance of extraction.
  • A quirky comment mentioned an immediate… physical reaction to the brownies. While it’s likely in jest, it’s a gentle reminder that the potency of edibles can sometimes surprise even seasoned cannabis enthusiasts!
  • The term “DANK” itself sparked some clarification. While many equate it to high-quality weed, it technically refers to cannabis that’s been dried slowly and cured properly. The term emphasizes the potency and quality of the cannabis used.


Brownies, when infused with cannabis, become more than just a dessert; they’re an experience. It’s essential to know your tolerance and adjust the recipe accordingly. Regardless of whether you’re team “double-oil” or team “cannabutter”, always consume responsibly.

Note: Cannabis-infused edibles can be potent, and their effects take longer to manifest compared to smoking or vaping. Always start with a small portion and wait before consuming more. Always ensure they’re out of reach of children and pets.
