What’re cannabis milkshakes exactly? How are they made? And why does everyone want to drink ’em? We tell all.

Whether you’re a veteran marijuana user or anxious to give cannabis a spin, this article will walk you through making your very own marijuana milkshake at home.

What is a Marijuana Milkshake?

You’ve probably heard of a weed brownie, but what about a weed milkshake – a cannabis milkshake that melts into your body and lifts your mood, while smoothing out the edges of your mind with every sinful sip.

Like any great milkshake, it consists of ice cream and maybe a couple other ingredients, blended or stirred together. In the case of a marijuana milkshake, one of those ingredients is marijuana. In this recipe, it’s cannabis milk (also called cannamilk) – the creamy and luxurious yet low-dosage basic that you mix with ice cream and whatever other flavours and toppings you want before smothering your taste buds in cannabis vibes.

The stars of the marijuana milkshake are, of course, cannabis milk – made from cannabis flowers or concentrates infused in milk – and the decarboxylation process which chemically bonds the cannabis, via the milk’s fat, to make an instant, potent and bioavailable infusion.

Once you have your milk ready, your milkshake is the easy part – just blend your fattened cannabis milk with your own favourite ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, mint chocolate chip – even fudge ripple! Or, use whatever fruit, syrups or baked goods you desire. Make your own cannabis milkshake, just the way you like it.

  • Customisable experience: The awesomeness of this meal rises to the square of awesomeness of your milkshake. This is due to the fact that you have complete control over your potency – simply adjust the amount of cannabis milk used to match your tolerance levels. You can dial the experience up or down as desired. Additionally, you may add your own choice of flavours to the components – for example, you can use hazelnut spread or caramel chocolate.
  • Clandestine consumption: Smoke and vape? No way! Marijuana milkshakes represent perhaps one of the most discreet modes of cannabis consumption. The onset of effects takes place roughly 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on your metabolic rate and tolerance level.
  • Possible benefits: Marijuana milkshakes, as with other edibles, might provide potential benefits such as pain relief, relaxation and improved sleep. Given that the effects are more likely to last longer and be more intense with edibles, it is essential for a first-time user to make sure they start with a very low dose, and wait 2 hours or more before consuming anymore.

Get ready to dive into the world of marijuana milkshakes, where the joy of making your own dessert meets the blissful effects of cannabis.

Step 1: Prepare Cannabis Milk

To make your marijuana milkshake, you first need to prepare cannabis milk, also known as cannamilk. This process involves infusing whole milk with decarboxylated cannabis to extract the THC and other cannabinoids.

  • Decarboxylate your cannabis: Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C) and spread your cannabis buds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even heating. This step activates the THC and other cannabinoids in the plant material, making them more bioavailable for infusion.

  • Grind the decarboxylated cannabis: Once your cannabis has cooled, grind it into a fine powder using a grinder or food processor. A finer grind will increase the surface area of the plant material, allowing for better infusion into the milk.

  • Simmer the ground cannabis in whole milk: In a saucepan, combine the ground cannabis with whole milk over low heat. Simmer the mixture for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. The heat and fat content of the milk will help extract the cannabinoids from the plant material.

  • Strain the mixture: After simmering, remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool slightly. Using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer, strain the cannabis milk to remove any plant material. Squeeze the cheesecloth to extract as much liquid as possible.

  • Chill the cannabis milk: Pour the strained cannabis milk into a container and place it in the refrigerator to chill until you're ready to use it in your milkshake. Chilling the milk will help create a thicker, creamier texture when blended with ice cream.

Step 2: Gather Your Ingredients

Now that you have your cannabis milk ready, it's time to gather the other ingredients for your marijuana milkshake. Here's what you'll need:

  • Cannabis milk: This is the star ingredient that will infuse your milkshake with the desired effects of cannabis. The amount you use will depend on your tolerance and the potency of your cannabis milk.

  • Ice cream: Choose your favorite flavor of ice cream as the base for your milkshake. Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are classic options, but feel free to get creative with flavors like mint chocolate chip, peanut butter, or even more unique options like lavender or green tea.

  • Milk (optional): If you prefer a thinner consistency for your milkshake, you can add some regular milk to the blend. This will also help balance out the potency of the cannabis milk if needed.

  • Flavored syrups or mix-ins: To customize your marijuana milkshake, consider adding flavored syrups, such as chocolate, caramel, or fruit syrups. You can also mix in fresh or frozen fruit, peanut butter, chocolate sauce, or even baked goods like brownies or cookies for added texture and flavor.

  • Whipped cream and toppings (optional): For a finishing touch, top your milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream and your favorite toppings, such as chocolate chips, sprinkles, or a cherry.

Once you have all your ingredients ready, it's time to blend your milkshake. The process is simple: add your desired amount of cannabis milk, ice cream, and any mix-ins to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy, adjusting the consistency with regular milk if needed.

Pour your milkshake into a glass, garnish with toppings if desired, and enjoy responsibly. Remember to start with a low dose of cannabis milk and wait at least an hour before consuming more, as the effects of edibles can take some time to kick in.

With these simple steps and ingredients, you can create a delicious and potent marijuana milkshake tailored to your taste preferences and desired effects. Whether you're looking for a relaxing treat after a long day or a fun and creative way to consume cannabis with friends, this versatile recipe is sure to become a favorite in your cannabis cookbook.

Step 3: Blend Your Milkshake

Now that you have your cannabis milk and other ingredients ready, it's time to blend your marijuana milkshake to perfection.

  1. Add ingredients to the blender: Start by adding your desired amount of ice cream, cannabis milk, and any additional flavors or mix-ins to your blender. The amount of each ingredient will depend on your personal taste preferences and the size of the milkshake you want to create.

  2. Blend until smooth: Turn on your blender and mix the ingredients until they are well combined and the milkshake reaches a smooth, creamy consistency. This may take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute, depending on the power of your blender and the amount of ingredients you've added.

  3. Adjust the consistency: If your milkshake is too thick, you can easily thin it out by adding a splash of regular milk. Add the milk gradually, blending in between each addition, until you reach your desired consistency. Keep in mind that adding too much milk may dilute the flavor of your milkshake, so be careful not to overdo it.

  4. Taste and adjust: Once your milkshake is blended, give it a taste to see if it meets your expectations. If you feel like it needs a little extra sweetness or a stronger cannabis flavor, you can add more mix-ins or cannabis milk as needed. Just remember to blend the milkshake again after adding any additional ingredients to ensure they are fully incorporated.

  5. Serve and enjoy: After you've achieved the perfect blend, your marijuana milkshake is ready to be served. Pour it into a glass, add any desired toppings, and enjoy your delicious cannabis-infused treat responsibly.

When blending your marijuana milkshake, it's essential to find the right balance of ingredients to create a tasty and potent treat. Don't be afraid to experiment with different flavors and mix-ins to find your perfect combination. Just remember to always consume cannabis milkshakes responsibly and start with a low dose to avoid overindulging.

Step 4: Garnish and Serve

Once you've blended your marijuana milkshake to perfection, it's time to pour it into a glass and add the finishing touches.

  • Choose the right glass: Select a tall, chilled glass that will showcase your milkshake's creamy texture and vibrant colors. A classic milkshake glass or a large mason jar can be perfect for this purpose.

  • Pour with care: Gently pour your blended marijuana milkshake into the glass, taking care not to spill any of the delicious contents. If you're feeling fancy, you can use a frosted glass to add an extra touch of elegance to your presentation.

  • Add toppings: Now comes the fun part - garnishing your milkshake with your favorite toppings. A dollop of whipped cream is a classic choice that adds a light, airy texture to the rich milkshake. You can also drizzle some chocolate sauce or caramel syrup over the top for an extra burst of flavor.

  • Sprinkle with extras: For a final flourish, sprinkle some toppings over the whipped cream or sauce. Chocolate shavings, colorful sprinkles, or even a dusting of cocoa powder can add visual appeal and a delightful crunch to your milkshake.

  • Serve with a straw and spoon: To make it easy to enjoy your marijuana milkshake, serve it with a wide, reusable straw and a long spoon. This way, you can sip the creamy shake and scoop up any toppings or mix-ins that settle at the bottom of the glass.

Effects of Weed Milkshake

Besides giving you the best dessert for a nostalgic day, the effects of this tasty weed milkshake differ depending on the strain you select to make your cannamilk. If it’s a sativa-dominant strain, you can expect an energy increase as well as an uplifting and euphoric experience.

As a result, it would be ideal to engage in outdoor activities and participate more actively in social interactions. It also aids in the improvement of physical performance and task concentration.

An Indica dominating hybrid will make you feel warm all over while making you feel heavier and more relaxed. These strains are best used in the evening or at night because their body high induces couchlock and makes you sleepy.

Dosing Tips for Your Marijuana Milkshake

When crafting your marijuana milkshake, it's crucial to get the dosing right to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect balance:

  • Start low and go slow: Begin with a low dose of cannabis milk, around 1/4 to 1/2 cup per milkshake, depending on your tolerance and the potency of your cannamilk. This allows you to gauge the effects and avoid overconsumption.

  • Be patient: Keep in mind that edibles like marijuana milkshakes can take up to 2 hours to take effect, as they need to be digested and metabolized by your body. Resist the temptation to consume more until you feel the initial effects, as this can lead to an unpleasant experience if you overindulge.

  • Know your limits: Everyone's tolerance to cannabis is different, so it's essential to listen to your body and know your personal limits. If you're new to cannabis edibles, start with an even lower dose and work your way up gradually over time.

  • Use a THC calculator: To help determine the appropriate dosage for your milkshake, consider using an online THC calculator. These tools can estimate the potency of your cannabis milk based on factors like the amount of cannabis used, the THC percentage, and the volume of milk.

  • Label and store properly: If you're making a larger batch of cannabis milk or milkshakes, be sure to label them clearly and store them in a secure location away from children and pets. This helps prevent accidental consumption and ensures that you can easily identify the potency of each serving.

Remember, consuming marijuana milkshakes responsibly is key to having a positive and safe experience. Never drive or operate machinery under the influence of cannabis, and always enjoy your milkshake in a comfortable, safe environment.

By following these dosing tips and being mindful of your consumption, you can indulge in the creamy, dreamy goodness of a marijuana milkshake while reaping the benefits of cannabis in a delicious and enjoyable way.
