Cannabis milk is a staple for anyone utilizing homemade cannabis edibles. Common uses are cereal, smoothies, or as an ingredient for baked goods. Unlike cannabis oil that is concentrated and highly calorie, cannabis milk has a higher water content and allows you to use greater volumes for the same cannabis concentration. However, due it its lower fat content, THC activation may not be as effective as when making cannabis oil.
Here’s a recipe for cannabis almond milk that’s both healthy and tasty!
Recipe for Cannabis Almond Milk
- ¼ Cup raw almonds
- 2 Cup water
- Ground cannabis (1 g recommended)
Blend the almonds and water in a food blender until it resembles milk. Strain the milk using a strainer. Add the strained milk to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the ground cannabis and reduce heat; simmer for 45 minutes, stirring frequently. Once done, remove from heat and pour in a jar.
Canna-milk can be created using an assortment of milks: cow, goat, coconut, rice, soy, tempeh, hemp. Higher the fat content, the more effective the THC activation will be, maximizing the medicinal gains for each gram of cannabis. If using store-bought milk, check the nutrition label for the higher fat content alternative and boil with ground cannabis.
