If you’re familiar with cannabis cooking, it is likely that you are no stranger to working with THC oil, cannabis butter, or cannabis tinctures. These cannabis bases are fantastic themselves, but this is a different kind of infusion.
Cannabis milk is one of the easiest cannabis recipes to make, and can offer a discreet and tasty way to get high. Find out exactly how to make it right here.
Cannabis milk, much like cannabis butter, is a great base for cooking. There are a multitude of recipes out there that require the use of milk for its fat content. It is this fat that the THC and other cannabinoids within your weed can bind to, making a sky high drink. Once you have it you can use to create a cannabis version of absolutely anything else that would usually contain milk, be it eating a bowl cereal or baking a masterpiece.
Cannabis milk is silky smooth and carries a unique flavor. It blends well with coffee due to its earthy notes and creamy finish. Consider how easy it will be to dose by just a splash of milk in your morning brew. You’re not changing your routine, only modifying an ingredient to meet your needs.
The potential of weed infused milk is really exciting. This is a cannabis base that is well worth its short preparation time.
Here is a list of common foods that you can now easily medicate with cannabis milk:
- Cannabis Infused Ice Cream
- Weed Infused Mashed Potatoes
- Cannabis Smoothies
- Weed Infused Omelettes or Scrambled Eggs
- Cannabis Mushroom Soup
- 1 cup milk
- About 3 grams marijuana (see recipe notes, below)
This recipe can be scaled up or down using the same ratios
- Decarboxylate the marijuana. Scatter the marijuana on a lined, rimmed baking sheet; toast at 240 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, turning a few times throughout the baking. Remove from the oven, let cool completely, and then grind it finely. You can also grind it before, but I find that it’s easier to grind after this heating process as it is drier.
- Pour the milk into a saucepan. Add the marijuana. It will float at first, but as it warms it will become more combined. Place the saucepan over medium heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally to discourage scorching on the bottom of the pot.
- Once the mixture comes to a simmer (with bubbles around the edges and steam coming off the mixture, but not boiling), reduce the heat to the lowest setting. Cook, uncovered, for 30-45 minutes, stirring every few minutes and making sure that the mixture isn’t getting so hot that it scorches the bottom of the pan, and that it isn’t forming a “skin” on top (if it does, just break it up and stir it around) If it seems like the milk is reducing a lot, add ¼ cup more. The mixture will thicken slightly as it cooks; it will also begin to take on a slightly greenish-yellow tint.
- Remove from heat and let the mixture cool completely (I let it cool with the marijuana still in the mixture; extra infusing couldn’t hurt, right?). Strain through a mesh strainer or cheesecloth into your storage container. Place in the fridge, and enjoy as you see fit.
Dosage: dosing your marijuana milk can be tricky because of the differing strengths of strains and your personal tolerance. I personally found that about 3 grams per cup of milk was a good amount. For me, each “serving” was about ¼ cup. So, each serving had about 1 gram of marijuana, which for me is a little more than the average joint. If the average joint is far larger or smaller for you, you can adjust this recipe accordingly.
Dilution: The milk will reduce during the cooking process. You can either add more milk during the cooking process if it is losing a lot of volume, or you can mix a little milk in after your batch of cannamilk has cooled, so that it will bring it back to the original amount of liquid.
Storage: Store your canna-milk as you would store regular milk, in a sealed container in the fridge. Keep in mind, the expiration date on your milk is still going to be the expiration date for your canna-milk, so consume with that in mind!
What effects does it produce?
As you know, the effects of smoked and ingested marijuana are completely different, with the effects of the second option being less stronger but longer. For this reason, it is always recommended to be cautious and wait, because although the effect of cannabis when smoked is almost immediate, that of the marijuana ingested may take up to an hour to start noticing, depending on our tolerance and the type of strain we have chosen. So this is the first point to keep in mind when using marijuana milk.
Of course it’s not recommended to mix it with alcohol or other drugs, because the effects could be harmful to your health or those of the people who are going to take your milk with you. And, no doubt, it’s much better not to drive the car, motorcycle or bicycle, once you’ve taken the marijuana milk. You have multiple options to move from one place to another without driving!!
But how are the effects of marijuana milk? It all depends on the strain you have chosen. For example, if you use the buds of a Fucking Incredible Feminized, the effects will be relaxing and help you sleep. So if you’re one of those who have trouble falling asleep, this can be a good and pleasant option. In this case, besides, it would be very good for you if take it warm, so that you would notice in your body the effects that the full-fat milk has in your body.
On the other hand, if you use the Session’s Weed Feminized strain, the effects will be psychoactive and cerebral on the one hand, so it is best not to use it for sleeping.
And what if you’re looking for an inspiring and creative effect, or you need to increase your appetite? Recommend you to use Quantum Kush, which in addition to having a high THC content, will bring you those benefits.
The whole cannabis plant, seeds included, has a significant nutritional value. The following amount of nutrients is present in a single cup of cannabis milk:
- 900 mg omega-3 fatty acids
- 2800 mg omega-6 fatty acids
- all 10 essential amino acids
- 4 g easily digestible protein
- 46 % of the recommended daily intake of calcium
- 0 % of cholesterol
- vitamin A
- vitamin E
- vitamin B12
- folic acid
- vitamin D
This extensive list shows us that cannabis milk is rich in protein and it is also a significant source of the rare gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This beverage also contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, folic acid and vitamins A, E and B12. It is a source of a great amount of magnesium, potassium and iron, which are the basic components of healthy diet and which ensure the proper functioning of the immune system.
