DIY Cannabis Simple Syrup
A necessary component for making nearly all THC-infused concoctions. Once on hand, you can use your own homemade cannabis simple syrup to spruce up all kinds of libations and make potables even more potent.
Whether you choose to spike your morning beverage, stir into citrus juices, mix with shrubs, and/or build cannabis cocktails, this versatile medicated sweetener belongs in the home of any deserving Chron Vivant.
- 2.5 cups filtered water (for best results, filter at least twice to remove impurities).
- 2.5 cups granulated sugar (white or brown, depending on desired flavor and usage).
- 2 tablespoons vegetable glycerin(available on Amazon via the link or at your local health food store).
- 2-3 grams of finely ground organic cannabis (were using high-grade Bubble Gum from Humboldt Farms).
Measure out equal parts sugar and water. Add your filtered water to a large pot and bring to a low boil. Once your water begins to bubble, m ix in your high-grade organic cannabis and s tir in the sugar until all the crystals are dissolved.
This is arguably the most important step, so be careful not to get the liquid past an internal temperature of 250° F or let it boil over. When cannabis is heated it goes through a chemical process called decarboxylation that activates the THC, but if the temperature gets too high you will damage the THC.
Cover pot and maintain a gently boil for 15-20 minutes while the syrup reduces.
Next lower the temperature to medium, add the vegetable glycerin, and l et simmer for an additional 5-6 minutes (stirring once every 45- 60 seconds). This will help give the cannabinoids something to bond with. Some people skip this step but I find it really does help with the final product.
Finally, strain out any organic matter and let simple syrup cool to room temperature. At the end, you should be left with approximately 3 cups (24 oz) of medicated cannabis simple syrup.
The final yield should be close to 24 oz, which is enough to make 12 moderately-dosed cannabis beverages (2 oz each), containing approximately 20 milligrams of THC per serving (depending on the potency of the cannabis used).DIY Cannabis Simple Syrup A necessary component for making nearly all THC-infused concoctions.
