Cannabis milk is one of the simplest and most user-friendly infusions imaginable. It only requires two components: cannabis and milk. You may also use it in place of regular milk in any recipe that calls for it.Keep a jar of infused milk on hand at all times, and substitute it for ordinary milk in my coffee every morning. The inclusion of a bit of canna-milk in my morning cup of coffee adds a wonderful taste to the beverage without adding too much THC. The options for incorporating the marijuana-milk into your recipes are limitless!
Seeds, leaves, and stems of the cannabis plant are all rich in nutrients. A single cup of cannabis milk contains the following nutrients:
- 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
Cannabis milk is high in protein, and it’s also a good source of the rare gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This drink also includes omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, folic acid, vitamins A, E, and B12. It’s packed with magnesium, potassium, and iron, all of which are important components of a nutritious diet since they help to maintain optimal immune function.
Here are a few easy recipes that you can use your cannabis infused milk in:
- cannabis infused hot chocolate
- weed milkshakes
- cannabis infused sauces and soups
- creamy cannabis infused scrambled eggs
- delicious weed ice cream
What type of milk should i use?
The ideal milk to utilize is whole-fat milk. Full-fat milk is the only kind of milk that contains the cannabinoids needed for absorption and effectiveness. Coconut, hemp, rice, and other non-dairy milks can also be used with this recipe. If you’re using a low-fat or fat-free milk, add a tiny pinch of lecithin powder (optional) to improve absorption and quality.
How much weed should i use?
The amount of milk you drink will influence the strength of the extract. This is entirely dependent on your own tastes, tolerance, and quality of the plant material you are utilizing. We recommend 1-3.5 grams cannabis buds per 500ml milk, however this may be increased or decreased to suit your preference and tolerance. The flavors and scents of your herb will also be absorbed into the milk, so pick a strain that you think would perform well. Fruity strains produce great results! If you want better flavor as well as greater potency, try using leaves instead of buds.
Your canna-milk will also be affected by the strain you choose. A sativa strain will give your canna-milk an energetic, creativity boosting effect, whereas an indica strain will produce a stone couch-lock in your milk. Use a hybrid variety for optimum harmony between the two.
Beneficial Effects of Cannabis Milk:
- boosts the immune system
- improves skin quality, strengthens hair and nails
- supports cardiac health
- increases brain activity
- contains anti-inflammatory substances and improves blood circulation
An Easy and Fast Recipe to Make Weed Milk at Home
Although it is possible to buy cannabis milk in certain health-food stores, it is quite pricey, so if you’re comfortable in the kitchen, go for it.
You’ll need the following for making your own cannabis milk: half a cup of shelled raw cannabis seeds and roughly a liter of drinking water. You should also prepare a piece of cloth for final filtration.
In a blender, combine the seeds with water for three minutes. The mixture should be filtered through a cloth to produce your milk, which is ready to consume. Make sure to chill the mint leaves before adding them for optimum results. If you want your drink to taste best, chill it. This drink may be kept in the refrigerator for up to three days if ice is not required.
If you’re searching for a vegetable substitute for milk and have had enough of rice, almond, oat, and coconut milk, this cannabis milk is an excellent choice. It’s packed with nutrients and has a wonderful flavor.
Also, keep in mind that even if you do not like this milk, you can still get the seeds – they’re considered a superfood and everyone aiming for a healthy diet should consider putting them on their menu.
- 7 Grams Cannabis Buds (or leaves/trim)
- 1 Litre Milk (full fat preferably)
- To maximize the effectiveness of this recipe, decarboxylate it first. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Using a mixing bowl or food processor, coarsely grind your cannabis and place it on a baking sheet or dish in an even layer. Cover with foil and return to the oven for 25-40 minutes. Allow to cool after removing from the oven.
- Place the milk in a pan and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer slowly on low heat or in a double boiler to prevent burning.
- Add your decarboxylated cannabis to the simmering milk and stir continuously until it is entirely immersed in the milk.
- Allow 45-60 minutes for the canna-milk to cook. Do not allow it to boil. Stir the mixture every 10-15 minutes. Depending on the age, strain, moisture, and quality of the cannabis you used, your milk will take on a greenish-yellow tinge.
- Take the cannamilk off the heat and prepare your straining gadget (sieve, cheese cloth, coffee filter), as well as a bottle or container to put the strained weed milk in.
- Pour the milk through a straining bag or filter to remove and discard the cannabis debris. Squeeze out every last drop of excellent milk from the herbs left in the strainer or filter, so none is wasted.
- Allow the filtered milk to cool before consuming or storing in the refrigerator. Drink it cold, warm, or use it in an infused recipe.
- A teaspoon of lecithin can improve the effectiveness of your cannamilk by aiding in the THC’s bonding to lipids and increasing bio-availability.
- Full-fat milk is not required, but the higher the fat content, the better. The THC binds to fats, so if you’re using a low-fat milk, we recommend adding lecithin to help improve absorption. Coconut milk adds great flavor and is very easy to prepare!
- Do you want to learn how to make CBD-infused milk? Simply replace the marijuana in this recipe with CBD hemp flower buds or CBD hash instead. I recommend decarboxylating CBD hemp flower at a temperature of 125 degrees Fahrenheit rather than the 115 degrees Fahrenheit recommended in this recipe.
