How to Make CBD Cannamilk
- Full-fat milk
- 1 Gram of decarboxylated CBD cannabis per liter of milk
Note: You can always use cream, coconut milk, or other milk substitutes.
- Mason Jar or any other airtight liquid storage container
Grind your buds into a texture as fine as possible so it can be easy to infuse. Avoid using your fingers, or it would be difficult to mix the herb with the milk. The smaller your ground bud, the easier it will be to infuse. Make sure to use your favorite bud for this step. If you have some doubts about what CBD strain to use, check out our garden and choose the strain that draws your attention.
Pour the milk or its substitute into the saucepan and add your ground herb into it. Then, place over low heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour while using your whisk to mix it. Keep a constant eye on the mixture to prevent the milk from boiling over. If it starts expanding, lower the heat or remove it a few seconds before resuming the boiling.
During the simmer time, stir the milk mixture frequently to prevent scorching, and when finished, remove the mixture from heat and sit for 5-10 minutes to help the cannabinoids set into the fat cells. This time, it should have taken a greenish color, making it look very different from regular milk.
Place cheesecloth over the top of a large mason jar or the air-tight liquid storage container of your choice and pour the mixture over the cheesecloth to strain out the seeds and stems from the herb. When it’s cool enough to handle, carefully squeeze all liquid that remained in the cheesecloth into your container.
Seal your container tightly, label it with its contents and expiration date, which is the exact date listed on the milk container, and place it in your fridge for later use. Remember always to mark all cannabis-infused products and keep them secured away from children at all times.
CBD Milk Effects
The effects of your CBD milk vary depending on the strain you choose. If it is a Sativa-dominant strain, you can expect an energy boost with an uplifting feeling accompanied by euphoria. As such, it would be perfect for doing outside activities and participate more actively in your social interactions. It also helps you improve your performance in physical activities and focusing on tasks.
An Indica-dominant hybrid will make you feel a warm sensation through your body while feeling heavier and relaxed. These strains are perfect for evening or nighttime consumption as their body high causes couchlock and makes you feel sleepy afterwards. The medical effects will relieve low to mild aches and break any tension coming from anxiety or weight from stress. Moreover, CBD usage for fighting depression and loss of appetite is ideal.
The effects of ingested CBD are less strong but last notably longer than when smoked. Because of it, we recommend waiting 30 minutes to one hour to perceive the effects after you consume an edible. This is the first fact to keep in mind when using CBD milk. We recommend avoiding mixing cannabis edibles with alcohol or other psychoactive substances. The effects could be harmful to you and the people who drink CBD milk or any other CBD-infused edible.
