Have you been looking for new ways to enjoy your cannabis?

There are countless ways to enjoy cannabis and a good THC high. Infusing cannabis into your milk is a great way to incorporate cannabis into your cooking, enjoy it as part of a breakfast, or change the way that you enjoy cannabis.

Let’s dive into how you can make cannabis infused milk and a little bit of this science of THC along the way.

What is Decarboxylating Cannabis?

There are plenty of scientific questions around cannabis like marijuana and antibiotics interactions, growing new strains, and decarboxylation.

Decarboxylation is the process of removing carbon molecules from the THC. Before cannabis is exposed to heat, that THC is actually THCa. That little “a” is a carbon molecule that prevents THC from having its full effect.

The decarboxylation process usually happens when you smoke cannabis. When the lighter hits the cannabis product, it naturally decarboxylates the cannabis. In edibles, cannabis oil is decarboxylated in the production process.

We’re going to have to decarboxylate our cannabis flower before we can make cannabis infused milk.

How to Decarb Cannabis

The good news is that you came to decarboxylate your cannabis at home with stuff you already have. All you really need to do is bake the cannabis at a specific temperature range for a given length of time; this will decarboxylate all of your ground cannabis and get you ready for the next step in the recipe.

Remember to not go over 250 degrees. Once you go over this temperature you risk breaking down the THC and spoiling your cannabis.

  1. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees making sure to not go over 250 degrees
  2. Add your ground cannabis to a baking sheet
  3. Bake for 45 minutes
  4. Cannabis should come out browned, but not burnt

You can use any kind of milk that you want for this recipe. The one thing to keep in mind is that the more fat that is in the milk, the better the cannabis is going to be absorbed into the final product. THC loves binding to fatty molecules which means that whole milk and coconut milk are great choices for this recipe.

  • 1 gallon of milk
  • 8 oz ground cannabis flower

Here’s the formula for calculating how much THC is in your weed: Weight of flower in grams x THC percentage.

In order to calculate the amount of THC per cup in a gallon. There are 16 US cups per gallon, so that would be diving by 16. Use more or less cups based on your recipe.

This will give you the amount of THC per cup.

How Cannabis-Infused Milk Works?

Now we need to talk a little about cannabis science in order to understand how cannabis infused milkworks.

THC, as a molecule, is not water-soluble. This means that it does not dissolve in water. THC is fat soluble which means that this molecule regularly bonds to fats.

This is why making a THC-infused milk is so successful. The THC in the cannabis will quickly infuse into the fats in the milk. You could make this recipe with skim milk, but those have less fats which means that the THC will not be as readily absorbed into the milk.
