Coffee & Cannabis Shake
Recipes prepared with cannabis are being used more and more often by cooks and chefs that want to try cooking with their favorite plant. That’s why we’re going to show you how to make a coffee and cannabis shake; a delicious concoction that’s perfect for hot summer days.
Before we go over the actual recipe, keep in mind that you can make either a recreational or a medicinal coffee and cannabis shake. This will depend on your preferred use; those that suffer from chronic illness and prefer to consume cannabis medicinally can consume one of these milkshakes without needing to actually smoke it.
You can always use CBD-rich cannabis, which allows you to obtain amazing medicinal properties without giving you any psychoactive effects at all. All you have to do is use CBD strains rather than normal cannabis.

Cannabis milk recipe
Before preparing your cannabis milk we highly recommend cleaning it with water for around 5-10 minutes under 120°C. This gets rid of any dirt of chlorophyll left in your weed. This is, of course, optional, but it can improve the final flavor.

- Place the saucepan at medium heat and pour in the milk.
- Add your cannabis.
- Keep the milk at 120ºC for 40 minutes.

- Decorate your drinks using whipped cream or some caramel.

You should always drink a cannabis shake ice-cold and in company if you can. Always tell your friends what’s in the drink before they drink it, and make sure that you’re in good company so that the high is good.
Try and be somewhere with good vibes and make sure you have a full stomach. Drink it moderately and make sure you don’t have anything important to do after. Depending on your tolerance, metabolism and the quality of the weed, the effect may vary.
Coffee & Cannabis Shake | Precautions
Keep in mind that the effect may take a while to take hold, so enjoy your shake moderately and don’t try and down it too fast. Once you begin feeling the effects, do not consume any more and simply enjoy the ride. If you don’t feel anything after 2-3 hours, you may need to drink a bit more of your shake.
If you accidentally drink too much, don’t worry, simply try and relax and if you have any CBD-rich extracts or weed, try and take some. CBD is quite efficient at deflecting THC’s effects.
Remember, you’re making an incredibly psychoactive milkshake, so make sure to store it somewhere in your fridge that children can’t get to it – this is incredibly important, as soon as a kid sees that you have a milkshake, they’ll want one too.
