✨ How to make homemade Cannabis Liquor

First of all, as in all cannabis recipes, you have to decarboxylate weed so that the drink contains all its effects. Otherwise the liquor will taste like cannabis, and the properties of cannabinoids in acid form, but we will lose most of the medicinal benefits.

It can be made with all kinds of alcoholic drinks, but keep in mind 2 things: the more alcohol it contains the more cannabinoids it will extract in less time and, if you want to enjoy the taste of cannabis, it is better to use a white or neutral-flavored drink.

? Cannabis Liquor. Beneficial Effects and Properties

Mixing cannabis and alcohol creates a synergy that enhances the psychoactive effect of both components separately. It is thought that alcohol causes cannabinoids to be absorbed more quickly, but even so, alcohol intoxication is perceived earlier than the effect of cannabis. For this reason you should be careful when drinking alcohol and cannabis together, since it’s easy to think that it doesn’t have much effect on you and want to take more, and by the time you realize it, it’s too late.

The interaction of cannabis with alcohol causes a more introspective effect than when smoked alone. It is ideal for inspiration, as it invites you to meditate and think about everything, but in a relaxed and peaceful state.

Medicinally, the effects of cannabis and alcohol together can be helpful for escape, calming anxiety, some kinds of pain or stress. In small quantities, up to 3.4 tablespoons (50 ml), it can be useful to reduce tension and open the mind, but in high doses the effect becomes narcotic, so it can be useful to treat insomnia.

? Conclusion

Alcohol is a solvent that goes well with cannabis, because apart from extracting cannabinoids it contains its own psychoactive effects. If you find your ideal dose it can become the combination that brightens up your nights and helps you sleep better. Have you tried this combination? What do you think? Let’s hear it…
