Cannabis-Infused Milk For Canna-Patients
Cannabis-infused Milk does a body good!
However, when infusing milk with cannabis flowers, it is important to note that the higher the fat content in the milk you use, the more effective the cannabinoid activation will be in your end product.
Before You Begin
Before you begin: If you are infusing your recipe, you’ll need to decide if you want to use hemp flower for more CBD effects or cannabis flower for more THC effects during decarboxylation.
No worries, as in all infused recipes, you can use either of them or a bit of both if it suits you!
A Note On Decarboxylation
Although raw cannabinoids have their own valuable medicinal qualities, without decarbing the flower or plant material for the infusion, cannabinoids (like THCA, and CBDA) will likely remain in their inactive acid states.
When infusing recipes, you may want to take the extra step of decarboxylation first, especially if you want the activated form of CBD or (the psychoactive effects) of your THC meds to be present.
Note: You can skip the decarboxylation process if you only want the raw cannabinoid benefits without THC/CBD activation.
How to Make Cannabis-Infused Milk
- 2 cups whole-fat milk
- 7g-1oz decarboxylated cannabis
For Those Following Ayurveda: As a rule, dairy milk (cow’s milk, goat’s milk, sheep’s milk, etc.) should be taken at least one hour before or after any other food.
Vata Dosha – Dairy products are generally balancing for Vata, but it’s good to avoid powdered milk and cold dairy products.
Pitta Dosha – Dairy products tend to be grounding, nourishing, and cooling, so many of them are balancing for pitta.
Kapha Dosha – Dairy products are best minimized when trying to reduce Kapha because they tend to be heavy and can increase mucus production. Goat’s milk and goat’s milk products are the best options for Kapha because they are lighter, but are best in moderation.
How To Prepare:
- In a saucepan combine milk and cannabis
- Bring to a low simmer over very low heat.
- Do Not Boil! Stir frequently until the mixture becomes thicker, aromatic, and has a green hue (approximately 30-45 minutes)
- Remove milk from heat, strain through a cheesecloth into a glass container, and set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Keep refrigerated.
Almond and rice milk are good substitutes for anyone who doesn’t tolerate dairy milk well.
Enjoy the fresh drink straight or use it as a milk replacement in your favorite medicinal recipes!
