It’s no secret that cannabis edibles come in all kinds of varieties. Some people prefer the delicious taste of cannabis chocolates whereas others prefer the fruity chewiness of cannabis gummies. However, if you don’t want to eat your THC, you can also get high with a range of refreshing cannabis-infused drinks.
Just like edibles, cannabis drinks can give you an intense high that can last for 4 to 8 hours, and sometimes even longer. Although you’ll need to allow a fair amount of time for the effects to kick in, the experience is worth it. Plus, you can adjust the potency of your drinks to your liking so you can get as high as you like.
One way to enjoy these delicious beverages is to buy cannabis drinks online. From THC juice syrup to cannabis teas and cocoas, these readymade mixes make for a quick and easy way to concoct a refreshing marijuana drink. However, you can also create a range of THC-infused drinks yourself if you’re feeling creative.
Cannabis drinks are usually made using cannabis-infused milk or butter, although you can also use THC syrup or tincture. Whether you prefer hot drinks, smoothies, or cocktails, here are some of the best cannabis-infused drinks and how to make them yourself.
1. Cannabis Milk
Since THC binds to fat-based ingredients, many people enjoy the effects of cannabis by creating cannabis milk. Not only does this make for a refreshing cannabis-infused beverage that you can drink by itself, but cannabis milk can also be used as an ingredient in various other cannabis drinks.
Once you’ve made a batch of cannabis milk, you can add it to tea, coffee, smoothies, or even a White Russian to swiftly infuse your favorite beverages with the effects of cannabis. But first, you’ll need to decarboxylate your weed and bind it with milk – here’s how to do so.
- 500ml milk (preferably full-fat milk)
- 2 grams of weed
Step 1: You’ll need to decarboxylate your weed before adding it to milk. Decarboxylation involves heating your cannabis buds to activate the THC without burning them. Preheat your oven to 220-245°F (105-120°C), break your cannabis into small chunks, and place them on a baking tray covered in parchment paper.
Step 2: Place your baking tray of cannabis buds in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Shake the tray around halfway through to ensure the buds are heated evenly. You can then remove the buds from the oven and grind them.
Step 3: Add your decarboxylated cannabis and full-fat milk to a saucepan and simmer at low heat for 30-45 minutes. The THC from your weed will bind to the fats in the milk.
Step 4: Remove your saucepan from the heat and strain the mixture into a container through a cheesecloth to separate the milk from the cannabis buds. You’ll be left with a batch of potent cannabis milk that you can use however you want.
2. Cannabis Honey Lemon Tea
Tea and cannabis are a match made in heaven. Not only do you get the health perks that tea offers, but you also get the physically relieving and mentally uplifting effects of cannabis, making for a particularly comforting and enjoyable beverage.
Adding honey and lemon can also help enhance your tea, especially as these ingredients are particularly healthy and flavorful. However, you can also add ginger, cinnamon, or whichever other ingredients you like. There are a few ways to make cannabis tea, but here’s one of the most straightforward.
- 1 tea bag (or loose-leaf tea)
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- THC Tincture (or cannabis milk)
Step 1: Brew your tea as you normally would by heating water in a pot or kettle and adding it to a cup along with your tea bag (or loose-leaf tea infuser).
Step 2: Add a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of lemon juice to your tea and mix thoroughly. This will enhance the taste of your tea while simultaneously infusing it with the positive effects of honey and lemon. You can also add other ingredients if you want, such as ginger and cinnamon.
Step 3: Once your tea has cooled slightly, you can infuse it with your cannabis. The easiest way to do this is with cannabis tinctures. THC Indica Tincture will give you soothing and relieving effects whereas THC Sativa Tincture can invigorate your body and mind. One-third of a dropper is enough to give you potent effects, but you can adjust the dosage depending on how potent you want your tea to be. the effects of THC.

Step 3: Infuse your lemonade with cannabis by adding around half a dropper of THC Indica Tincture or THC Sativa Tincture. This should give you a potent 500ml glass of lemonade with a 15mg dose of THC, although you can alter this recipe if you want more lemonade or more THC.
Step 4: Stir your lemonade again before pouring it into a glass with some ice. While you can drink cannabis lemonade by itself, you can also add a portion of your lemonade to all kinds of cocktails if you want a refreshing THC-infused alcoholic beverage.
