Recipe: DIY Cannabis-Infused Milk
- ½ gallon (8 cups) full fat milk
- ½ ounce of cannabis trim or flower of choice
*Note: Potency of infused milk depends on parts of plant used along with strain and THC levels. Ratio of cannabis grams to cups of milk should be roughly 2:1, though more/less can be used to raise/lower potency.
- Medium saucepan
- Mixing spoon
- Strainer OR Cheesecloth
- Grinder (optional)
- Air-tight container for storage
Prep Time: 5 minutes.
Cooking Time: 40-60 minutes.
Prep Cannabis & Milk
A. Break up cannabis using grinder or with fingers as finely as possible.
B. Pour milk into saucepan, bring to boil, then lower to a simmer.
*Note: Careful not to overheat milk as it will overflow.
Infuse & Decarb
A. Slowly add cannabis to simmering milk while stirring with spoon.
B. Let mixture simmer on low for 40-60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
*Note: Cannabis must go through decarboxylation by being properly heated to activate the psychoactive component, THC.
Strain & Store
A. Strain milk with strainer OR cheesecloth – ensure to ring out cheesecloth before discarding.
B. Allow to cool before storing in air-tight container in fridge.
