THE CANNA-SYRUP

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of filtered water
  • 3 cups of granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerine
  • 2 grams cannabis, grinded
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 jar/closed container (i.e. Mason jar)
  • Strainer or cheesecloth

Step-By-Step Directions

  1. Add water to a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Add in the sugar making sure it dissolves.
  2. Next, add in the ground cannabis for the decarboxylation process. This will allow the THC to become active.
  3. Bring to a low boil and continue to stir for 20 minutes. Then let the cannabis dissolve into the sugar wan water mixture.
  4. Reduce the heat down to a low simmer and add the vegetable glycerine in. Let this simmer for roughly 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool.
  6. While this cools, prepare the strainer and mason jar.
  7. Stretch the cheesecloth over the jar open, wrap a rubber band and hold in place.
  8. Carefully pour the cannabis syrup through the cheesecloth scrapping the leaves into a bowl.
  9. Then, continue this until all the liquid is removed from the leaves. Squeezing the mixture may help.
  10. Let this cool and then add to your favorite drinks or dressings.

CANNABIS INFUSED LEMONADE

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 cups of lemon juice (or 8-10 lemons)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 Teaspoons of infused canna syrup or tincture
  • Pinch of salt (optional)

How To Make

  1. Start off by squeezing your lemons and adding some water to it. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Then add in your cup of sugar to even out the bitter and sour taste of the freshly squeezed lemons. This much sugar may not be necessary if you are creating this recipe with already store-bought lemonade. These juices already include the necessary amount of sugar.
  3. Then add in the mixture from your canna syrup or use a cannabis tincture. This will create the infusion.
  4. Add a pinch of salt.
  5. Mix or blend again thoroughly.
