Cannabis milk is possibly the most searched-for cannabis recipe in the world, alongside cannabis butter. 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. So, 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.
How to prepare Cannabis Milk
Before you start making this delicious cannabis milk recipe, it’s important to keep in mind that you can use medicinal cannabis, which can provide some pretty amazing results. However, If you decide to use recreational marijuana, you can enjoy a long-lasting, intense psychoactive effect.
Ingredients and Materials
- 20-30 grams (0.7-1 oz) of dry resinous leaves or 2-5 grams (0.07-0.2 oz) of cured flowers per liter of water
- 1L (4 cups) of bottled water
- 1L (4 cups) of whole milk
- Glass bottle for storing the milk
- Cooking pot
- Thin sieve
- Wooden spoon
Note: When making cannabis milk it’s important to know that you can use cannabis rich in THC or CBD. Also, keep in mind that if you use dried leaves without much resin, the effect will be less potent than using flowers.
Remember that 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.
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. This way, it won’t taste as sour, making it much easier to drink. Besides, you’ll also be getting rid of insects, dirt, dust and any fertilizer residues that may be on the flowers.
These are the steps to follow:
How to clean your cannabis
To clean your materials, you’ll need a pot, a sieve, a liter (4 cups) of bottled water and your cannabis.
- 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 starts boiling, turn the heat down and let it sit for 10 minutes.
- Step 4: Remove the pot and pour the water into your sieve. Clean it with some cold water. It is advisable to avoid touching the weed in excess.
How to make cannabis milk

- Step 2: Put it on medium heat until it starts boiling.
- Step 3: Once it starts to boil, lower the heat. Mix every now and then to keep it from boiling and cook the milk for about 40 minutes.

Cannabis Milk Effects
When ingesting cannabis milk, you’ll need to keep in mind that it’ll take a bit longer to fully take effect, but it will be more intense and long-lasting. At present, there are thousands of strains to choose from in order to prepare your cannabis milk.
You can use pretty much any strain you want: indica strains, sativa strains and high THC, hybrid strains. Thanks to the new strains being made every day, you can also use CBD-rich flowers with different ratios. Depending on which one you use, you’ll experience a series of effects.
How to take cannabis milk
We highly recommend drinking a small amount and waiting to see how you feel. You can start drinking a quarter glass of milk and wait for about an hour. If you don’t feel any sort of effect yet, drink another quarter and wait again until you feel it.
How to store cannabis milk
Simply store it like regular milk. Keep in mind the sell-by-date on the original bottle or 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 regular milk is that the cannabinoids may end up degrading. That’s why we recommend using an opaque glass container.
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 either for medicinal or recreational purposes.
This way, you can use cannabis milk in an easy way to prepare any meal or dessert you like in their cannabis version, like for example omelets or ice cream.
