Cannabis drink recipes don’t have to be boring, and though a hot cup of weed tea can be a treat on a cold winter day, in the summer you’ll need something that will help to cool you down from the inside out, which is a thing that hot drinks just can’t do. Of course, you can always opt for some good old fashioned cannabis-infused alcohol that will just dehydrate you, but even if you feel good for a little while, the relaxation will fade away, and fast if you’re staying out in the sun.

If you’d prefer something that would help you to keep up on your water intake, without having to down bottle after bottle of plain old water, and an option that will gently elevate you into euphoria while you enjoy it, then you’ve come to the right place because here we’re going to explain how to make delicious slushies with weed.

1. A strawberry cannabis slushie

This one is similar to a strawberry smoothie, except it doesn’t require any milk products to make it, so if you love the sweet and mouthwatering flavor of red fruits, then this might be the slushie for you.

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil (or 2 small rice sized portions of distillate)

2. The blueberry twist slushie

Blueberry twist will always be a hit because it carries the softer sweetness of blueberries alongside the antioxidant-filled mulberry and blackberry for a naturally sweetened punch.

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • ½ cup blueberries, mulberries, and blackberries combined
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil (or 2 small rice sized portions of distillate)

3. Green mango bliss

The green mango bliss combination boasts some of the more exotic fruits that aren’t full of acid, so they go down easy and will satisfy any sweet tooth without a bunch of added sugar.

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • ¼ cup mango
  • ¼ cup pear
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil (or 2 small rice sized portions of distillate)

4. Green tea slushies

If you like green tea when it’s hot, then you simply much try green tea slushies, and they measure up at less than half of the calories of the traditional hot version because you won’t need any sweetener or cream to cool it down.

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 1/3 cup green tea
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil (or 2 small rice sized portions of distillate)

5. The iced tea slushie

This is one of the easiest slushies to make because you can use a canned or bottled store-bought juice to make it work.

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 1/3 cup of iced tea
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil (or 2 small rice sized portions of distillate)

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients from the list from your preferred slushie flavor to either a blender or a food processor.

  2. Put the lid in place and then combine all of the ingredients until they reach a smooth or semi grainy perfect slushie consistency.

  3. Pour the slushie into a cup, and garnish with a slice of lemon or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra special treat.

Dosing

The ingredients that you find measured out under each different slushie flavor will add up to one full serving of the super chill treat, so if you’re hosting guests, or have a special someone to share with, then make sure that you multiply each one by the number of people that you’d like to serve. Since these combinations each come with a high dose of cannabinoids, we highly recommend sticking to only one every 2 hours or more to avoid taking too much which can put a damper on an exciting day.
