how to make cannabis milk

Cannabis Milk

Cannabis milk is possibly the most searched-for cannabis recipe in the world, alongside cannabis butter, and it’s definitely one of the most made recipes. Many times, when people try to make this recipe they tend to use either too much milk or too much weed, which can end up creating more of an intense effect than desired – this can make for quite a bad experience. In order to stop this from happening, we’ve written this concise article that details exactly what you need and the exact proportions of cannabis and milk. We’ll also show you how to take it and store it properly.

It’s important to keep in mind that you can use medicinal cannabis to make this recipe, which can provide some pretty amazing results. If you decide to use potent, psychoactive cannabis you can enjoy a long-lasting, intense psychoactive effect. Before you start making cannabis milk you’ll need to make sure you know what type of cannabis you’re going to use.

Cannabis Milk | Ingredients

  • 20-30g of dry resinous leaves or 2-5g of cured flowers per liter of water
  • 1L of bottled water
  • 1L whole milk

Note: When making cannabis milk it’s important to know that you can use THC-rich cannabis or CBD-rich cannabis. Also, keep in mind that if you use dried leaves without much resin the effect will be less potent.

Cannabis Milk | Materials

  • 1 glass bottle for storing the milk
  • 1 pot
  • A thin sieve
  • 1 wooden spoon

Cannabis Milk | Preparing the Cannabis

The first step that you’ll need to take before starting to make the milk is cleaning and preparing your weed in order to get rid of as much chlorophyll as possible. When you get rid of the chlorophyll, it won’t taste as sour, making it much easier to drink. You’ll also be getting rid of insects, insect eggs, dirt, dust and any residues that may be on the flowers. This step is entirely optional, although we recommend it if you’re worried about the flavor of your milk.

Cannabis Milk | Cannabinoid extraction

Some people think that when you clean cannabis with water you’re degrading or getting rid of cannabinoids, but this simply isn’t true. Cannabinoids are water-repellent, which means that they can’t be absorbed or washed away by water. They are, however, fat-soluble, which means that they get absorbed into fatty materials – this is why we’re using whole milk in this recipe, so that all of the cannabinoids mix with the milk itself.

Once you know how cannabinoids act when they come into contact with water versus milk and other fatty materials (butter etc.) it’s time to start making your very own recipes!

How to clean your cannabis

You’ll need a pot, a sieve, a liter of bottled water and your cannabis for this particular step.

  • Step 1: Pour the water and cannabis into the pot.
  • Step 2: Put the pot on the stove and wait for it to boil.
  • Step 3: Once it has boiled, turn the heat down and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Step 4: After 10 minutes, remove the pot and pour the water into your sieve. Clean it with some cold water – try to touch it as little as possible.
  • Step 5: Once you’ve gotten rid of the water, it’s time to start preparing your cannabis milk.

You already know that you’ll need to wash your cannabis before making the milk. Grab your pot, a wooden kitchen spoon and a glass jar or bottle for storing the milk.

Once you have everything laid out, it’s time to get working.

  • Step 1: Pour the full liter of milk and all of your cannabis into the pot.
  • Step 2: Put it on medium heat until it starts boiling.
  • Step 3: Once it starts to boil, lower the heat.
  • Step 4: Mix every now and then to keep it from boiling.
  • Step 5: cook the milk for about 40 minutes.
  • Step 6: remove the pot from the stove and pour the mixture through the sieve into your glass bottle.
  • Step 7: let it cool down at room temperature and then put it in the fridge.

Cannabis Milk | Effects

When ingesting cannabis rather than smoking it, you’ll need to keep in mind that it’ll take a bit longer to fully take effect, and its effect is also much more intense and long-lasting. Keep this in mind before drinking cannabis milk or ingesting any food made with cannabis.

You can use pretty much any strain you want to make your cannabis milk; indica strains, sativa strains, hybrid and high THC strains. Thanks to the new strains being made every day, you can also use CBD-rich flowers in order to make delicious medicinal milk.

Let’s have a look at the different types of strains and the effects they may produce when consumed in milk.

Indica milk:

  • Physically potent
  • Physically and mentally relaxing
  • Great for alleviating intense muscle pain
  • Can alleviate physical and mental stress

Sativa milk:

  • Mentally potent
  • Mentally and physically stimulating
  • Great for increasing creativity
  • Perfect for smoking with friends and staying active

Hybrid milk:

  • Both relaxing and stimulating effects
  • Perfect for those looking for the full effect
  • Produces introspective effects

CBD milk:

  • Subtle, soft effect
  • Can alleviate various types of pain
  • Can fight the effects of THC
  • May be used medicinally without side effects

How to take cannabis milk

When it comes to drinking THC-rich cannabis milk, we highly recommend drinking a small amount and waiting to see how you feel. With a small amount, we mean about a quarter glass of milk – wait for about an hour. If after an hour you don’t feel any sort of effect, drink another quarter and wait again.

We recommend this method for both beginners and experienced smokers or cannabis consumers.

Note: Cannabis milk is an excellent alternative for those looking for a way to recreationally get stoned with an intense effect, although it’s absolutely perfect for those that want to be able to consume cannabis without needing to inhale.

How to store cannabis milk

Storing cannabis milk isn’t that difficult; simply store it like regular milk. Keep in mind the sell-by-date on the original carton of milk that you used. Keep it in the fridge and keep track of the days since you’ve made it – the only difference with cannabis milk is that the cannabinoids in the milk itself may end up degrading – that’s why we recommend using an opaque glass bottle or, if you only have see-through bottles, use something to cover it so that no light gets in, which is what ends up degrading the cannabinoids. Tin foil is perfect for this.

Alternative uses for cannabis milk

Cannabis milk is still milk, so you can include it in any other recipe that requires milk in it, making your very own cannabis-rich dish. Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t be cooking anything that requires high heat in order to conserve its full properties.


  • Cannabis tortilla: simply add some cannabis milk when whisking your eggs
  • Ice-cream: use some cannabis milk when mixing up your ice-cream


When making cannabis milk you can obtain an extra added benefit if you actually don’t wash the flowers. This allows you to keep the chlorophyll in the recipe, which has a whole list of added benefits and properties; washing your weed is an optional process. If you don’t wash it your milk may have a sort of sour taste.


If you plan on making this recipe and consuming it, avoid driving or operating any sort of heavy machinery afterwards. Enjoy this experience in a quiet, comfortably place with people that you get along well with. Make sure to have food handy as well as some sugary drinks. You’ll also want to store your cannabis milk out of reach of children – keep it up high.

Cannabis milk is the perfect relaxing drink with a twist, cold and fresh in the summer or nice and warm in the winter. Perfect for medicinal users!

How to make marijuana milk

Preparation of marijuana milk

In addition to smoking it, one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to drink cannabis is by making marijuana milk. You will only need 2 or 3 ingredients depending on the recipe, but you can take it in many different ways.

Do you like milk? ? If you are reading this article, the answer is probably yes. Now, think about the times you drink milk a day or use it in the kitchen, if you’re good at this task. Pretty much, right??

In fact, milk is one of the first ingredients we take when we get up, being many people who take it as the last meal in the night, thanks to the relaxing properties it has when we take warm. Not for nothing, our grandmothers did know their effects well.

So imagine the effects and benefits that drinking a glass of warm milk may have on your health, but this time including marijuana in the recipe, of course, if you use one strain with relaxing effects too.

You think coffee and biscuit afternoons are too boring? ☕? Then, sign up to shaking up this recipe by preparing that sponge cake with marijuana milk, made with a type of cannabis whose effects are physical and relaxing, for example..

Do you realize all the possibilities that marijuana milk gives you? That’s why today we want to tell you about the marijuana milk recipe, so that you can make it at home, step by step , and in a simple way.

✨ Ingredients

For the most basic and traditional recipe only two ingredients are needed:

  • full-fat milk
  • 2 grams of marijuana buds

Materials needed to prepare marijuana milk

Regarding the kitchen stuff, you’ll need a ladle and strainer, as well as a bottle with closure, or another similar container, if you intend to keep it in the fridge, although, on the conservation of marijuana milk I’ll make a little mention later. A wooden spoon will also do you good, if you don’t usually have it on hand.

Why should it be made from full-fat milk? Could it be made from skimmed or semi-skimmed milk? It could; but the problem is that the effect won’t be the same. The fact is that marijuana, when cooked, needs a little fat so that cannabinoids may be disolved into the milk and, therefore, you are able to note the effects of cannabis, otherwise, we will hardly notice them. So… the effect you’re expecting wouldn’t be the desired one.

As for the choice of cannabis buds, ideally you should choose a strain with a high percentage of THC, such as Y Griega, Fucking Incredible Feminized or THC Bomb, which are some of the highest THC strains in the world.

One last note before proceeding the preparation of this marijuana milk recipe: We have indicated 2 grams of marijuana buds, but, in reality, this measure can vary depending on your tolerance or that of your guests. Therefore, you can also take the following measure as a reference: between 0.5 and 1 gram of marijuana per 250 mililiters of milk are enough to enjoy both the taste and effect of cannabis we are going to use.

👌 How do you prepare marijuana milk step by step?

Now that you have everything you need, let’s go with the steps to make cannabis milk.

-First, heat the full-fat milk in a saucepan, but without boiling. Once the milk is hot, add the grinded marijuana buds and leave them in the heating plate over medium power for an hour and a half, so that the cannabinoids get disolved

Heat the whole milk in a saucepan and add the shredded marijuana buds.

-I recommend to stir the milk every so often with a wooden spoon, while controlling that the milk does not boil. Why to do that way? Because with boiling, the properties of cannabis could loss potency and, therefore, we would lose the desired effect. Regarding this first step, it is also recommended to use a grinder previosly instead of shredding the marijuana manually, in order to preserve as much as possible of the properties of your plant.

-Secondly , once the indicated time has elapsed, you only have to pass the milk through a strainer, so that you may separate the pieces of cannabis plant that are left in the liquid.

Pass the milk through a strainer

And, ready! See how easy it is? Now it’s your turn!?

🚀 What effects does it produce?

As you know, the effects of smoked and ingested marijuana are completely different, with the effects of the second option being less stronger but longer. For this reason, it is always recommended to be cautious and wait, because although the effect of cannabis when smoked is almost immediate, that of the marijuana ingested may take up to an hour to start noticing, depending on our tolerance and the type of strain we have chosen. So this is the first point to keep in mind when using marijuana milk.

Of course, although I’m sure you know, it’s not recommended to mix it with alcohol or other drugs, because the effects could be harmful to your health or those of the people who are going to take your milk with you. And, no doubt, it’s much better not to drive the car, motorcycle or bicycle, once you’ve taken the marijuana milk. You have multiple options to move from one place to another without driving!!

But how are the effects of marijuana milk? It all depends on the strain you have chosen. For example, if you use the buds of a Fucking Incredible Feminized, the effects will be relaxing and help you sleep. So if you’re one of those who have trouble falling asleep, this can be a good and pleasant option. In this case, besides, it would be very good for you if take it warm, so that you would notice in your body the effects that the full-fat milk has in your body.

On the other hand, if you use the Session’s Weed Feminized strain, the effects will be psychoactive and cerebral on the one hand, so it is best not to use it for sleeping.

And what if you’re looking for an inspiring and creative effect, or you need to increase your appetite?, I recommend you to use Quantum Kush, which in addition to having a high THC content, will bring you those benefits.

Fucking Incredible Fem, The flavor and aroma of this marijuana is fresh as long as bittersweet, citrus, mandarin-like...

Now you’ve got your marijuana milk in front of you. In addition to that interesting greenish color, which will distinguish it perfectly from the common milk (very important if you’re not the only one at home and put it in the fridge), smell great! So… who can resist its captivations??

Once again, and although it may look like a childishly simplicity, marijuana milk has to be taken in small amounts, so let’s see what effects it produces on your body. So don’t compare it to traditional milk.

Cold or warm? Actually, as you wish. There is nothing written on this point. In fact, and taking into account the recommendation of taking it in small quantities, the truth is that you may drink it alone, with cocoa, sugar, honey, tea…or whatever……

However, at this point and returning to what I promised you earlier, you have to take into account the point of milk preservation. If you are going to take it warm and directly, never mind (well, wait until it gets warmy for your throat, yes….?), but if you want to take it cold, for example, before putting it in the fridge, and just like you do with any other foodstuff, wait until it cools outside. Once you reach the goal, think about taking it in the next 24-48 hours so it doesn’t spoil.

Can it be used to make recipes? Of course! As we use marijuana butter to make, for example, biscuits, milk can also be used to make this dessert or other recipes with marijuana. In addition, many people use it to make ice cream or Milk shakes, among other examples. What recipe would you like to use it in??

And, talking about enjoying…. don’t forget the recommendations you always have to take into account when ingesting marijuana: do it little by little, wait until the effect begins to rise (it can take up to an hour or even more, depending on each body) and think that the effect is more lasting than when you smoke it, so… enjoy its preparation and consumption!
