What Are CBD Brownies?
Be careful asking questions like these! Because once you learn the answer, you won’t be able to resist making some for yourself. So before you read onward, make sure you have time set aside to not only bake brownies. But to eat some!
CBD brownies are, quite simply, brownies that contain CBD oil. We all know the reason we love brownies. They are delicious, moist, and chocolatey. Some people even love those corner pieces with the crispy outer layer. You can add chocolate chips. You can make them vegan. Brownies are a yummy treat that nobody can resist.
So why add CBD oil? Okay, while brownies are irresistibly delicious, let’s not lie and say they are the healthiest thing to eat. These are meant to be an indulgent treat! But why not add some health benefits to your tasty dessert?
CBD oil is essentially CBD that was extracted from hemp. It’s non-psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high.
Instead, CBD interacts with the receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS keeps your body balanced and maintains a sense of well-being. The receptors are found in every major system in your body, including the digestive, immune, and nervous systems.
When CBD interacts with these receptors, it may have a variety of positive effects on your body and mind. So bite into a warm brownie and feel happiness from its chocolatey goodness. The CBD oil will do the rest!
What Are the Benefits of CBD Edibles?
CBD edibles are growing in popularity within the CBD market for a variety of impactful and important reasons. Let’s take a closer look at what makes a CBD brownie more than just an addictive dessert.
Alternative to Smoking
Smoking CBD flower or vaping CBD oil are popularly portrayed ways to experience the benefits of CBD. But not everyone enjoys the act of smoking or vaping. Others might also have conditions that make it difficult. CBD edibles are a great option for people that want an alternative.
Okay, did we mention that CBD brownies are delicious? CBD edibles offer unique flavors that make the process of taking CBD even more enjoyable. You can suck on a sweet CBD lollipop or chomp down on a CBD oatmeal cookie. There’s a CBD edible for all taste buds and preferences.

How to Make Your Own CBD Brownies
And now the recipe you’ve been waiting for: CBD brownies! This is one of the most popular ways to eat CBD. That’s because it’s super easy to make and it’s addictively delicious and satisfying. We have the perfect CBD brownie recipe below. The following dessert is gluten-free, grain-free, and even dairy-free!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
- 3 eggs (large!)
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 2 tbsp prepared coffee
- 1 cup chocolate chips (vegan!)
- 1/4 tsp salt (pink!)
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut oil
- Hollyweed CBD oil
The biggest question now is how much CBD oil you add to the recipe. There are two options with Hollyweed’s CBD oil that you should consider:
Option 1: 10ml of 300mg = 22mg per CBD brownie
Option 2: 10ml of 600mg = 44mg per CBD brownie
The first option is considered a regular dose. This is good for mild symptoms and ailments, like joint soreness or skin redness. People looking to feel comforted and relaxed or focused and inspired will take regular doses about every eight hours or twice a day.
The second option is a strong dose. This is for people who feel that the regular dose isn’t enough. You might be experiencing more discomfort or feeling extra upset. People usually work their way up to a strong dose. But don’t worry. You can easily reduce the amount or not take CBD at all and you won’t experience withdrawals.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Find a medium bowl and combine the egg and coconut sugar inside it.
- You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer. Beat the mixture on high until it’s light and fluffy, which is usually about three to five minutes.
- Stir in the almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, cooled liquid coffee, and vanilla extract. Do this until they are combined properly.
- Grab a small saucepan and put it over low heat on the stove.
- Combine coconut oil and chocolate chips in the pan and keep it over the heat until the chocolate has melted.
- Remove from the heat, and then add the Hollyweed CBD oil.
- Stir this mixture until it’s completely smooth.
- Pour this mixture into the brownie batter from earlier. Stir them together
- Add the remaining chocolate chips once it’s combined properly.
- Use parchment paper to line a baking pan (9×9″).
- Pour the brownie batter into the pan, filling all corners evenly.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, using a toothpick to check when it’s ready. The toothpick should basically not be coated in wet batter but also shouldn’t be completely free of batter (that means it will be too dry).
- When done, remove the brownies from the oven. Let it cool completely on your counter or a wire rack.
- When it’s cooled, cut the brownies into nine equal squares.

By now you’re probably thinking, “These sound very delicious. But what will eating CBD brownies do?” So CBD brownies have a lot of positive effects on your mood and comfort. They help your ECS maintain a sense of well-being and balance. Here are the most common benefits people experience:
Many people use CBD to minimize physical discomfort, including joint swelling and skin irritation. CBD may reduce swelling, which makes it perfect after a challenging workout or long day. CBD can leave you feeling comforted and relaxed.
Reduces Negative Feelings

Not only will you be able to sleep easier when you have less physical discomfort and negative thoughts, but CBD is known to inspire deeper sleep. People often take it before bed to inspire a restful night. You’ll wake up feeling rejuvenated and energized. Eat a CBD brownie, grab a good book, and curl up under the covers.

Are CBD Brownies Legal?
Even though the concept of CBD brownies might remind you of edibles that get people high, CBD brownies do not. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t have intoxicating elements that will give you those unwanted side effects.
Because CBD is not intoxicating, all CBD products throughout the United States became legal when the Farm Bill passed in 2018. As long as they contain below 0.3% THC, it’s legal to produce, manufacture, sell, buy, and use CBD products in all 50 states. So that means CBD brownies are 100% legal!
