Making cannabis lemonade is a great way to enjoy the summer weather and get your THC fix at the same time. This potent drink is perfect for parties or for sipping on a hot day. This recipe makes a large pitcher of cannabis lemonade, but can easily be halved if you want to make a smaller batch.
To make cannabis lemonade, you will need:
-1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
-1 cup sugar
-1 ounce cannabis leaves or buds (about 28 grams)
-6 cups water
Start by mixing the lemon juice and sugar together in a large pitcher. Next, add the cannabis leaves or buds and muddle them into the mixture. Muddling helps to release the THC from the plant material so that it can be infused into the lemonade. Finally, add the water and stir everything together.
Let the mixture sit for at least an hour so that the THC has time to infuse into the liquid. If you want a stronger drink, you can let it steep for longer. When you’re ready to serve, strain out the plant material and Pour over ice. Enjoy your refreshing cannabis lemonade!
What You Need
-1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 6 large lemons)
-1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 cup water
-1 gram of cannabis, finely ground
1. In a medium saucepan, combine the lemon juice, sugar, and water. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Remove the pan from the heat and add the cannabis. Stir well to combine.
3. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and refrigerate until cold. Serve over ice and enjoy!
Making the Lemonade
First, you’ll need to make a simple syrup. Combine sugar and water in a pot on the stove, and heat until the sugar is dissolved. You can make a large batch of simple syrup and store it in the fridge for future use, or just make enough for this recipe.
Next, remove the seeds from your lemons (you can save these seeds to grow your own lemon tree!) and juice the lemons into a pitcher. Add the simple syrup and stir well.
Now it’s time to add the cannabis! If you’re using trim or bud, you’ll need to decarboxylate it first. Spread your cannabis on a baking sheet and bake at 220-250 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes. This will activate the THC so that you can get nice and high from your lemonade!
If you’re using hash or kief, you don’t need to decarboxylate it first. Just add it directly to the lemonade mixture.
Stir well and taste to see if you need to add more sweetness. If so, add more simple syrup until it’s to your liking. Pour over ice and enjoy!
Adding the Cannabis
Once you have your lemonade to the desired sweetness, you can add your tincture, oil, or butter. Start by adding a small amount and working your way up to the amount that suits your needs. You may need to experiment to find the perfect ratio for you. Garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy!
As you can see, making cannabis lemonade is a pretty simple process. You can make it as tart or sweet as you like, and you can also add other herbs or fruits to give it a unique flavor. Just be sure to use quality ingredients and enjoy!
