Why Choose Baked Edibles?

As soon as cannabis infused edibles become legal in 2019, The Botanical Brownie will be making infused products. For the time being, we offer our easy-to-use Take and Bake mixes with specific cannabis infusion instructions—make your own cannabis edibles in the comfort of your home. Learn to make Cannacoconut Oil.

Once cannabis infused edibles become legal, you will find The Botanical Brownie using several types of cannabis and extraction techniques to make our oils. We bake the cannabis oils directly into products, rather than coat (spray) or paint them on as the last step. The result is a product that is always tastier and more consistent. After about 1 to 3 hours you will begin to feel the effects of your edibles and you should expect delicious relief for 2 to 6 hours.

We always recommend exercising restraint when consuming edibles for the first few times so you become accustomed to your individual tolerance and desired effect. Cannabis is fat soluble so we recommend eating a meal before consuming our products. ​Dosing is individual specific so start with a dose of 5 mg to 10 mg and experiment from there.
