how to make weed syrup

Canna-Simple Syrup

Canna-cocktails, infused with a simple syrup, are a cooling and delicious choice for a wonderful springtime high – sans alcohol.

The strain is up to you, but we found J1 is a good choice. The simple syrup recipe makes about 24 reasonable doses, but of course the dosing depends on the potency that you desire. Go slow, you have all the time in the world.

Canna-Simple Syrup

Course Drinks, Infusion

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 4 grams cannabis chopped fine
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp vegetable glycerin

Instructions

Bring the water to a low boil.

Slowly add the cannabis, stirring frequently.

Next, add the sugar, stirring to dissolve.

Cook for 20 minutes, covered, not allowing the mixture to boil too vigorously.

Remove cover and add glycerin.

Continue cooking, gentle bubbles, for 7-8 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture will thicken.

Allow the syrup to cool and transfer to a measuring cup with a spout. (Less spills!)

Strain the syrup through a small strainer and cheesecloth. Best kept in the fridge.
