#FoodieFriday: CBD Milk
It's Friday it means another amazing recipe for our #FoodieFriday!
We're sharing a very simple recipe of a drink we usually drink on a daily basis - MILK! Yes! Coz who doesn't like milk for breakfast or even before we sleep? Well, did you know? You can make your milk healthier by adding a CBD on it. So here's a great recipe for CBD Milk with 2 simple ingredients: 7 grams of Cannabis Buds (or leaves/trim) and 1 liter Milk (full fat preferably).
Decarboxylate your cannabis to maximize the potency of this recipe. Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Coarsely grind your cannabis and spread it into an even layer on a baking tray or dish.
Cover with foil then put into the preheated oven for 25-40 minutes. Take out of oven and allow to cool down.
Pour your milk into a pot and bring it to a boil then let simmer. Use a low heat or double boiler to ensure your milk does not burn.
Add your decarboxylated cannabis to the simmering milk and stir continuously until it is all fully submerged in the milk.
Let the canna-milk simmer for 45-60 minutes. Do not allow to boil. Stir the mixture every 10-15 minutes. Your milk will turn a slightly off-white, greenish-yellow colour depending on the age, strain, dryness, and quality of the cannabis you used.
Take the canna-milk mixture off the heat and prepare your straining device (sieve, cheese cloth, coffee filter) as well as a bottle or container to pour the strained weed milk into.
Pour the milk through your straining device to separate and remove the cannabis debris from the milk. Try to squeeze out every last drop of special milk from the herbs left in the strainer or filter so none of it goes to waste.
Allow the strained milk to cool before drinking or storing in the fridge. Drink it either cold or warm, or use it as an ingredient in an infused recipe.
*Adding a teaspoon of lecithin to the milk can increase the potency of your canna-milk by helping the THC bind to the fats and increasing the bio-availability.
*Different types of milk can be used instead of full fat milk however the higher the fat content the better as that is what the THC binds to. If you are using a low fat milk we recommend adding lecithin help increase absorption. Coconut milk works great with this recipe and is absolutely delicious!
*Wondering how to make CBD infused milk? Simply switch the cannabis in this recipe with CBD hemp flower buds or CBD hash. I recommend decarboxylating CBD hemp flower at a slightly higher temperature of 125c compared to the 115c recommended in this recipe.
