Be mindful of your dosage when using THC or CBD.
A standard dose of THC in an edible is 5-10 mg, so calculate accordingly. Click here for information about dosing and potency.
Start with a low dose and wait at least an hour before slowly consuming more, as the effects of ingested cannabis can take longer to kick in and can affect people differently.
Why Go Vegan With Your Pot Brownies?

Decarbing: Unlocking the Essence
Decarboxylation, often dubbed "decarbing," is where the magic starts. To the uninitiated, this might sound like a complex alchemical process. But don't be intimidated. Simply put, it's about gently heating your cannabis flower to activate the THC compounds. This turns your regular, garden-variety cannabis into a potent ingredient, adding a toasty, nutty depth to your final dishes.
What does"lipophilic" mean?
For those curious about the science behind cannabis cuisine, here's a tidbit: THC and CBD are "lipophilic" substances. This means they're essentially "fat-loving," dissolving well in oils and fats but not so much in water. Why does this matter? It ensures that the cannabinoids are efficiently absorbed into your body when you consume them, especially when paired with fats in recipes.
Nailing the perfect vegan pot brownie is like mixing a classic cocktail. It’s all about the proportions—balancing the potency of your THC Oil with the rest of your ingredients. This does involve a dash of precision, but don't sweat it; we're here to guide you through the math. Just follow our instructions in the post below.

Vegan Infused Pot Brownies
- 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- ½ cup California extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon JAM infused olive oil. Click here for the recipe.
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 10 ounces California prune purée (that's just under 1 ¼ cups)
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Flaky sea salt for garnish
- ½ cup chopped nuts OPTIONAL
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, then lightly grease with cooking spray or with a wipe of olive oil.
- Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate with the olive oil and infused oil. Whisk in the sugar and prune purée and mix until dissolved.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Gently fold in the chocolate and prune mixture, then stir in the vanilla. Fold in nuts, if using.
- Spread the batter in your prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes, or until the top starts dry our and the brownies are just beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with flaky salt, then let cool in the pan.
- Remove from the pan using the parchment paper, then cut the brownies into 3-inch squares and serve!
Wait - did you say prune purée to substitute for eggs?
Yes. We did. In addition to being a great binder because of their fiber and natural sugar (sorbitol) prunes enhance the chocolate flavor of the brownies. Bake from Scratch recommends using ¼ cup prune purée to replace each egg in baking recipes.
To make prune purée, blend 16 ounces of pitted prunes with ½ cup hot water until smooth. Stow it sealed in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
