The marijuana industry has opened up their doors to incorporate veganism into the push for commercial marijuana products.

But with that being said, it’s tough for vegans to find perfect vegan pot brownie recipes. Here are five ways to improve your vegan pot brownies.

Add two ounces of finely-ground marijuana with five cups of water to the coconut oil after it’s melted. After 18 hours, pour mixture over cheesecloth to remove all of the marijuana pieces. You can start using it to for your vegan pot brownies.

It’s recommended you melt the coconut cannabis oil with dark chocolate and agave. Combine this with mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and sugar.

Combine all of this with flour, baking powder, and salt. Add walnuts or vegan chocolate chips if you desire.

how to make weed brownies with cannabutter2. Use Cannabutter

Cannabutter is the staple in cooking with marijuana. Since it is a plant, marijuana can be used as an animal product substitute. This is definitely the case with cannabutter.

Cannabutter is conveniently sold on the shelves of dispensaries. You can also easily make cannabutter yourself. You make vegan cannabutter with coconut oil. Keep in mind it comes out a different consistency than cannabis coconut oil.

Toast the marijuana in the oven and grind it after the marijuana is dry. Take a spoonful or two of coconut oil and place it over the ground-up marijuana.

Let the mixture cook for three hours, and pour the mixture through a cheesecloth to remove any larger marijuana pieces.

The mixture will be liquid, so refrigerate it. Once you do, it will become hardened but soft, similar to the consistency of butter.

Start by grinding the marijuana (an ounce is recommended). Next, you heat the olive oil and mix the ground marijuana into it. Stir for an hour or two, and strain through a cheesecloth.

The only issue when using cannabis-infused olive oil with vegan pot brownies is the taste. Olive oil has a distinctive flavor that may not pair well with the taste of brownies.

It’s recommended only a little bit of olive oil is included in the mixture, or the oil is lined on the oven dish. This way, there is still cannabis in your brownies — but it’s not overwhelmed by the taste of olive oil.

Besides using it in pot brownies, cannabis-induced olive oil can also be used for a combination of other recipes.
