Thirsty for a drink? Need a good smoke? Hit two birds with one stone by making cannabis-infused drinks!

How do you make them if you aren’t that skilled in the kitchen?

Easy! We’ll show you the best ways to infuse your drinks with marijuana, that making them will be as easy as 1, 2, 3, 4. Now let’s make some bomb beverages!

Got milk? We do!

That cup of joe you have every morning can be made even better with cannabis milk.

Cannabis milk is something handy to have around. It can go with drinks like tea and coffee, or you can even make great milkshakes!

Marijuana is soluble in fat. To make your bud beverage, you need to use something like whole milk which contains more fat. You’ll need a half to a whole gram of cannabis for every quart of milk.

Once you’ve got your milk and weed, boil water in a pot. When it’s already boiling, put a steel bowl in the pot. Pour the milk and the weed into the bowl, then let lit simmer. Simmering may take several hours, but this is for the best. The milk will not curdle or burn because you won’t be applying heat to the milk directly.

Use a cheesecloth to strain the weed out of the milk, and tada! You now have cannabis-infused milk.

You can now mix it into milkshakes, protein shakes, coffee drinks, and different teas.

Get your stir up with some syrup!

If you’re a sweet tooth stoner, then you’ll love the taste of sugary syrup with all the medical and recreational benefits of weed! I bet Marry Poppins would adore this.

Prepare the following:

  • 2 grams of ground or chopped weed
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerine
  • 3 cups of fine sugar
  • 3 cups of water

Mix the sugar and water in a pot of medium size. Once it’s boiling, keep stirring until the sugar has been completely dissolved. Combine weed into the concoction, and cover the pot. Leave it be for twenty minutes.

Keep your fire low for twenty minutes. The low fire assures that your weed won’t get burnt, and the concoction will be decarboxylated. That means THCA will be converted to THC, so you’ll get the effect we all know and love. We won’t get too technical and save that for a different article, just remember that this is important.

You can now add the vegetable glycerine to the mixture. Let it simmer for five minutes, but stir a little from time to time.

Get a cheesecloth to strain the weed out of the syrup. Be careful; it’s hot! Store it in a bottle or a mason jar to keep it safe.

With your cannabis-infused syrup, you can now sweeten any of your drinks! You can put it in smoothies, iced tea, or even gin. Be creative and let your imagination run loose!

Get high… And drunk.

No, we don’t mean taking shots and hitting the bong at the same time, silly!

The lushes out there will be banging their bar tables for more with our cannabis-infused alcohol. The phrase beer bong will never be the same!

Before we start, we want to remind you to STAY AWAY FROM OPEN FLAME. Why? Alcohol is highly flammable, and we don’t want any huge explosions that’ll kill our buzz. So put that gas burner and lit joint away, and brew safely!

You’ll need 0.8 ounces of weed per 750 milliliters of liquor. You have the freedom to choose the kind of alcohol you’ll be using.

Decarb the weed using an oven or a microwave to bind your alcohol to the THC. We recommend the microwave because it takes less time without losing any efficiency.

Make sure your cannabis is in a container that is microwave-safe. Keep it covered, and cook it for about 1 ½ minutes at high heat. Don’t forget to flip it to the other side, and cook it again. Repeat this for about two times.

Once this is done, you can now loosely grind your bud. Be careful not to grind it too much, because we don’t want powder.

Get a big pot and fill it with water halfway. Bring this to a boil at around 212 degrees Fahrenheit using a hot plate or electric stove (remember, no fire!). Once it’s boiling, turn down the heat to the lowest option.

Mix the liquor and the weed in a smaller pot. You can also use a double-broiler that has water. Stir this a bit, then keep the concoction covered.

Keep an eye on the stove, so the heat doesn’t get higher than 170 F. Do this for roughly three hours while stirring occasionally.

With your cannabis-infused alcohol, house guests would NEVER want to leave! Have it on the rocks, or mix it up into a refreshing alcoholic beverage.

Cheat with cannabis tinctures, oil, or honey!

Did the previous recipes sound like too much for you to handle?

We can simplify it even more by using CBD oil or cannabis-infused tinctures and honey as additives to your refreshments. Add a little bit, but only within your limit because you wouldn’t want a high, that’s too intense.

One last hit!

Prepping some good old drinks that give you the kick of weed isn’t that hard now that you’ve read this guide. Once you’ve had these three bases mastered, you can infuse a variety of beverages with marijuana!
