This recipe for Amazing Marble Swirl Cheesecake Cannabis Brownies is part of my larger feature: How to Make the Best Pot Brownies: Recipes, Tips & Troubleshooting

This medicated brownie combines the best of both worlds – rich creamy cheesecake and deep dark fudgy brownies.

The beautiful marbled appearance might look like you need to be a pastry chef to accomplish it.  Surprise!  It's super easy to do.   

 I use Marijuana Butter to medicate this recipe.  Check out my Making Marijuana Butter tutorial for directions on how to make it if you don't already have this down.

Freezer Friendly Cheesecake Marijuana Brownies

Both cheesecake and brownies freeze well,  Likewise so does this recipe.   For longer storage, wrap each cheesecake brownie individually then freeze.  When you want to enjoy a medicated treat, just bring to room temperature and enjoy.  

Trust me, these cannabis brownies are so good, you might want the extra portion control and will power the freezer provides.

A note about the Dosage on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 55 mg THC per serving IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  That is a huge dose for many people and likewise you may want to cut it in half or even quarter it.

Even better, to adjust the dosage of this or any other recipe for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Course that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
