A lot of cannabis recipes use cannabis butter (cannabutter), but some use cannabis milk (cannamilk). Knowing how to make both is a good idea because it expands the types of edible recipes you can make at home.
I have never consumed cannamilk by itself, and assume that it may not taste the best, but I suppose that it’s possible. I have never made it with non-dairy milk, so I don’t know if that’s an option. My apologies to my vegan friends.
Below is the recipe that I use to make cannamilk. It’s very easy to do. If I can do it, so can you! The main trick is getting it at the right temperature to where it is as hot as possible without coming to a boil.
- 2 cups of whole milk (plus a tablespoon extra)
- ¼ oz of ground cannabis
- Heat 2 cups of milk (plus a tablespoon extra) in a saucepan on low to medium. Do not let the milk come to a boil.
- Add ground cannabis to the hot milk and simmer for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Never let the mixture come to a boil.
- Pour the hot cannamilk into a glass container, using a cheesecloth to strain out all ground cannabis from the milk. Repeat this step as necessary to strain all of the milk from the ground cannabis, and discard the remaining cannabis.
