 Syrup is the ultimate addition to some of the best comfort foods.  From pancakes and ice creams to sauces or baked goods. If you haven’t considered adding cannabis to some of your favorite breakfast or dessert treats, you’re really missing out. But don’t fret, follow this recipe guide to get in on some great cannabis infused edibles! This cannabis syrup recipe is guaranteed to please anyone with a sweet tooth and can be adjusted to be less potent to suit your personal preference.

Ingredients/Tools

  • 6 cups of water
  • 6 cups of white granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of vegetable glycerine
  • 6 grams of dried cannabis (adjust to your preference)
  • 2 sealable jars or bottles
  • Cheesecloth
  • 1 deep frying pan or pot

Instructions

  1. Add the white granulated sugar and water to a pot and bring to a boil while occasionally stirring the mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved. Now add the dried bud.

  2. Once sugar is dissolved cover the pot or frying pan with a lid and continue to boil for an additional 20 minutes. This will decarboxylate the bud by activating the compound THC with heat.

  3. After 20 minutes of boiling reduce the heat to a simmer for 6 minutes. Removing the lid and stirring every minute or so.

  4. Now remove the pot from the burner and using cheesecloth to strain the plant material out of the liquid and into your jar or bottle. To make this easier a small funnel can be used to place the cheesecloth in.

  5. Allow mixture to cool. You will now have 6 cups of syrup.

How to Use

Now you are likely wondering what to do with your newest creation. This syrup can be used as a topping on ice cream, waffles, pancakes, cakes or bread. It can be added to cold beverages like smoothies or hot drinks like coffee or tea. It can be baked with and mixed into various alcohol concoctions from cocktails to filled chocolates and more. Remember to test the product before deciding just how much to use. It may be more powerful than you expect it to be and there is no way to know for certain the exact THC content and effects it will produce until tested.

Storage

THC infused syrup should be stored in a cool dark place. A refrigerator is most recommended for the longest shelf life. A jar or bottle of this syrup will maintain its strength for approximately 1 month in the best conditions before it starts to deteriorate. This does not mean it will go rancid at that point. It just may become less effective. Be careful not to introduce any bacteria in the form of other foods. Doing so can result in a batch truly going bad to a point it could make you sick. This is easy to watch for as the syrup is transparent. When in doubt throw it out if you see any fuzzy or new floaties that weren’t there when you started its safest to dump it and start again.
