As cannabis becomes more popular, it is not surprising to see more cannabis products out there. There are many quality weed products on the market today, with brands offering everything from pet treats to beauty products. One of the newest products you can buy is cannabis-infused drinks.
One of the reasons so many people like these drinks is that the body can absorb the cannabinoids quickly. In addition, these drinks are delicious, and they are a good alternative for those who do not want to smoke.
While cannabis-infused drinks can cost quite a bit in the store, they are not too hard to make by yourself. Another plus of making homemade marijuana drinks is that you can personalize them to meet your needs.
Infusing milk is a good idea if you want to make milkshakes, tea, coffee, or any other product that uses milk. You can even make cannabis ice cream if you want. The amount of marijuana that you use will depend on the strain and your personal preferences, but you could start with about 2 grams for every litre of milk.
First, boil a large pot of water and ensure that it is a rolling boil. Now, put a steel bowl in your pot of water. This setup is basically a double boiler, which will prevent you from scorching the milk. Now, put the cannabis and milk in the steel pot.
Allow the milk to come to a boil and keep an eye on it. It might take about 15 minutes. Next, lower the temperature a bit and allow the mixture to simmer for a couple of hours. Stir it now and then, so you do not curdle it. Finally, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth. You can use your milk for any number of purposes, and you can serve it warm or cold.
Making a Milkshake
If you want to add a bit of alcohol to the mix, try making this fun milkshake. You will need to gather:
- 945 Millilitres of Peanut Butter Ice Cream
- 415 Millilitres of Cannabis-Infused Milk
- 4 Shots of Bourbon
- A Few Spoonfuls of Sugar
- Your Choice of Chocolate Syrup
- Peanut Butter Syrup
The process to make your milkshake is simple. All you have to do is to blend the sugar, cannabis milk, bourbon, and ice cream. Then, you can spoon it into a few glasses and top with the peanut butter and chocolate syrups. If you like, you can also add other toppings, such as chocolate shavings or even frozen peanut butter cups.
Making Marijuana Tea
If you like tea, you might be interested in knowing that cannabis tea has been used for many years by medicinal cannabis users. You can find infused teas at cannabis dispensaries. But it is also possible to make your own marijuana tea.
You can use your favourite type of herbal tea as part of this recipe, and you can even experiment with different types of tea to see what you like best. Start by brewing a pot of your favourite tea and then add some cannabis leaves to the hot water. Allow the mixture to sit for a while before straining it.
If you do not like the flavour of cannabis leaves, even with a strongly flavoured tea, there is another option. Simply add some cannabis milk to your favourite herbal tea instead of brewing the cannabis leaves with the tea. You also can try combining flavours to create a concoction that is truly yours.
If you want to get a stronger high, look for kava, which can help your high be more intense. It might give you a mellow feeling. It is often sold in health food stores or online. You can add your cannabis right into the kava teabag, or you can add cannabis milk to a cup of kava tea. This is often a good method of trying to relax before going to bed.
Marijuana and Coconut Oil
Often, coconut oil is associated with coking, but it is also used in many drinks and is an easy way to infuse many drinks. The infused oil can be used if you do not want to add milk to your drink. It is easy to make. You will need:
- 1 Part Ground Cannabis
- 1 Part Coconut Oil
Bring a pot of water to a boil, which will make up the bottom portion of the double boiler. Then, place the marijuana and coconut oil in your steel bowl. Next, place the bowl on top of the boiling water. This method will prevent the oil from becoming overheated and burning off.
Allow the oil to simmer at a low temperature for around six hours. Keep an eye on it and make sure that you stir it now and then. Then, strain it using a cheesecloth and a strainer. You can add this mixture to any drink of your choice.
If you love vodka, then try infusing it with some cannabis. It is easy to infuse vodka, and you can use it to make many different drinks. You will need to have:
- About 750 Millilitres of Vodka
- Your Choice of Cannabis
First, you will need to decarboxylate, or heat, your cannabis. You can do this step by breaking up your cannabis and spreading it out on a pan in your oven. Cook it for around 30 to 40 minutes at a low temperature.
Next, set up your double boiler by filling a pot with water and boiling it. Then, place a second pot inside it.
Put the vodka and cannabis in your second pot. Cover your second pot but ensure that the temperature is not hot enough to cause your vodka to evaporate. Keep it on the heat for a few hours and then strain it out.
Cannabis-infused drinks might seem like a lot to think about all at once. If you want to have something refreshing and simple, you can try adding a cannabis tincture to some water. Try experimenting with cannabis-infused drinks to see what you like the best.
