Cannabis Infused Milk
Anyway, here is a short list of ingredients that you will need in order to complete this milk masterpiece
- 1 oz ground up marijuana
- 1 gallon whole milk
- Large saucepan
- A spoon
- A reliable Tupperware container, complete with sealable lid
- A sturdy rubber band that can fit around the perimeter of the container
To be completely honest, I don’t think there’s anything that marijuana can’t make better. The quality of anything is instantly increased with the simple addition of cannabis in the mix. A quick joint before a movie-going experience can enhance even the lamest of cinematic flops. Concerts and outdoor events become even more magical and fun with a little bit of ganja tossed in. And, of course, the same goes for any and all foods.Yes, the wonderful world of edibles has long been one of the “go-tos” for stoners, such as myself. There is just something incredibly enjoyable about a THC-infused treat. While these are commonly held to the standard gummy or chocolate bar, there is a whole realm of untapped culinary possibilities that haven’t been tried yet.

There is something about these tasty drinks that I cannot get enough of. What I like most about these magical elixirs is their ability to maintain flavor, without being bogged down by any unwanted cannabis bitterness. That sort of off-putting flavor isn’t always an issue, but it is readily found in a litany of subpar edibles and drinks. That sort of displeasurable flavor spectrum doesn’t exactly “excite” the taste buds, in my humble opinion.For one reason or another, THC drinks rarely have that issue to combat with. Sure, there are a few “bad apples” that struggle to escape the cannabis bitterness from its contents, but those instances are so few and far between, it wouldn’t be fair to judge an entire category of edibles (in this case, drinkable) just because of a few yucky experiences. For the most part, these products are proven winners in not only taste, but in potency as well.At every dispensary nowadays, the average cannabis enthusiast can freely search through a fridge full of various flavors and consistencies. The majority of these products pride themselves on their accuracy to their non-psychoactive counterparts. Root beers taste like root beers, fruit punches taste like fruit punches, and so on. That level of accuracy is something that can rarely be said about an otherwise foul-tasting edible attempting to taste like a THC-free treat.

They feel like it serves as “proof” that the product they are currently consuming is packing a “punch” – for lack of a better term. Which, to be fair, could very well be true. For me, and the majority of cannabis enthusiasts out there, I enjoy a seamless tasting experience. As I alluded to above, I feel like the best bet for that sort of outcome can routinely be found with marijuana-infused beverages.And this got me thinking. I have made plenty of edibles, butters, oils, and alike on my own at home, but I have yet to try my hand at creating any sort of infused beverage. That sort of epiphany was fairly surprising, seeing as how I typically create all sorts of goodies at home. Usually, I am instantly inspired to do so after a successful tasting experience. So, needless to say, I was more than excited to finally try my best to create a THC-infused drink of my own. But now the question was: What kind of drink should I make?Obviously, there are more than enough elixirs and sodas to try and replicate. While all of those are beyond tasty in their own way, I found myself yearning for a little bit more of a challenge. I wanted to make a THC version of a popular beverage that I have yet to try at a dispensary. In short, I wanted to create a truly dank liquid concoction that I would be able to brag about and share with all of my fellow stoners. I knew it had to be something truly unique.Enter: Cannabis-Infused Milk.Yep. Your eyes don’t deceive you, I most certainly said Milk.Imagine the possibilities… You just finished your soothing wake-and-bake session when the “munchies” kick in. Seeing as how it's the morning, and you are fairly lit, what sounds better than an easy-to-assemble bowl of delicious cereal? In my personal opinion, the answer to that question is a simple “nothing.” What if you could take that bowl of cereal to the next level with some infused cannabis milk? Pretty dang enticing, isn’t it?Well, without further ado, please let me breakdown exactly how you can make a batch of this infused milk for yourself. I think you will be surprised by how easy it is, too. Before I launch into that, you should know that at least an ounce of marijuana is needed in order to properly infuse your milk. Which may sound like a lot, and possibly too expensive. But, if you check your local dispensary’s menu, they are likely to have a deal on “shake” or “run-off” buds that you can easily grab for a fraction of the price. Trust me, when it is all said and done, you will be happy that you did.
Once you have accumulated all of those necessary items, the remainder of the process is an absolute breeze.
- The first thing you are going to want to do is gradually heat up the whole milk in your saucepan. Make sure the heat that you’re using is “medium” – because you do not want that milk to boil – trust me.
- Secondly, you will want to grab that finely ground up cannabis and add it to the now-hot milk. Be sure to stir in the contents, but be as gentle as you can.
- There is a lot of finesse needed in order to truly nail this recipe. After you feel like you have blended in the cannabis with the milk properly, allow the dairy-inspired concoction to simmer for at least 60 minutes. During that time, keep an eye on it, and stir the contents gently every now and then.
- As this is doing its thing, grab that Tupperware, your cheesecloth, and rubber band. Using the rubber band as an adhesive of sorts, secure the cheesecloth over the top of the entire Tupperware container.
- Then, once that hour of simmering has completed, gently pour the newly created infused milk through the cheesecloth, and into the container, itself. The cheesecloth, as you already know, will help stop any sort of chunks or unwanted floral components to make their way into your infused milk.
- When that step is completed, grab the lid to your Tupperware and make sure its very secure and tight – thus not allowing any sort of air or contaminants to tamper with your culinary creation.
- When you trust that the lid is on there adequately, all you have to do now is toss it in the fridge to cool.
- Boom that's it!
Now, the next time you find yourself jonesing for a delectable bowl of cereal after your wake-and-bake session, all you have to do is meander over to your fridge and pour your new cannabis-infused milk into your cereal of choice. It’s really simple. Enjoy, my fellow stoners.
