So as everyone knows by now, we’ve got a bit of a pot shortage here in Illinois. Until the supply issue gets straightened out, your weed may be hard to come by, so you’ll need to use what you’ve got wisely. You may not get the edibles or concentrates you want, so we’ve got some ideas for you. Get creative with the below. It’s also going to be some time before cannabis beverages are legalized in Illinois. So, given all of that, here are 6 easy weed drinks you can make at home.
Easy? What are they?
Making weed milk is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is to put a steel bowl inside a pot of boiling water, or a double boiler, then add milk and your marijuana to the bowl. Boil for about 15 minutes, then lower the temperature and let it simmer for two hours. After that, you strain it, and lo and behold! Cannabis milk! Now, once you have made this milk, you can make pot milkshakes, marijuana coffee, cocoa, or really any drink that uses milk.
When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, right? Especially if the lemonade also has marijuana in it. What you do is to make a cannabis syrup by combining sugar, water and weed at a low boil. After that, add this syrup to your usual lemonade, either just in a glass or in the whole pitcher, and now life has handed you weed lemonade.
People have been making weed tea forever. It’s one of the most common ways for people to consume pot, even in today’s world. Here’s a solid recipe from Wiki Leaf here.
4. Protein Shake
If you’re into fitness, and you love cannabis, then a marijuana protein shake might interest you. The first step is to prepare cannabis coconut oil by boiling your standard coconut oil with marijuana. After that, add the oil to a blender with your usual protein shake ingredients. It might make the protein shake a lot easier to consume!
Making cannabis vodka is a complicated, because you have to watch your temperature. First step is to put the cannabis in the oven at a low temp, for roughly 30 minutes. Then simply boil your vodka and add your marijuana. However, you need to make sure your vodka temperature never exceeds 170 degrees, to avoid evaporation.
If you want to keep things super simple, or you have limited options, you can make cannabis water. All you need is a cannabis tincture or THC packet and add it to water. While this one is the easiest on the list, you need to make sure you watch your dosage, so that you don’t overdo it.
As we said, it’s going to be awhile before cannabis beverages or cocktails are a thing in Illinois bars and restaurants. Also, supply may be limited for some time. So hopefully, these concoctions will be enjoyable and entertaining… Let us know.
