A guide to making really great pot brownies.

Straining the Weed From the Oil with Cheesecloth


For those of you that are still fans of the older straining method using cheesecloth and a funnel here are the complete instructions.
You will need the following items:

A plastic funnel
PYREX® measuring cup

Now we strain the weed out!

Place your funnel into the PYREX® measuring glass
Drape a large piece of cheesecloth in the top of the funnel, allowing overhang on the outside of the PYREX® measuring glass


Pour the entire oil/ganja concoction into the cheesecloth-draped funnel.
Use a teaspoon (or rubber spatula) to scrape out every last bit of oil!! This is the reason we’are here today.
Grab the 4 corners of the cheesecloth and form a mini oil/ganja knapsack.
Using the back of a spoon, press as much oil out of the cheesecloth as humanly possible.
The more you get, the higher your potential.
When you are done you should have just about (if not exactly) a 1/2 cup. If not, simply top off the PYREX measuring glass with whatever amount of oil is required. Please note the dark brown color!
At this point we are ready to make our brownies. If you want to bake your brownies later, simply cover your oil with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until you are ready to bake. The rest of the instructions are followed exactly as described on the brownie box for fudge-like brownies with an 8x8 pan.
Here is our final comparison:
Now it's time to bake!
