Best Pot Brownies: The Cannabist’s “Next-Level” Triple Chocolate Recipe

March 23, 2016

When we went searching for the best pot brownie out there, we wanted to hear what The Cannabist had to say. The Denver Post’s cannabis division represents a new school of cannabis journalism, and the creator of this recipe boasts nearly 30 years of recipe development experience. We love these brownies because when topped with white chocolate, hazelnuts, fresh blueberries, raspberries and whipped cream, they’re absolutely delicious and anything but boring.

Note: The amount of cannabis butter specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabutter and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
