Preparation of marijuana milk


In addition to smoking it, one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to drink cannabis is by making marijuana milk. You will only need 2 or 3 ingredients depending on the recipe, but you can take it in many different ways.

Do you like milk? ? If you are reading this article, the answer is probably yes. Now, think about the times you drink milk a day or use it in the kitchen, if you’re good at this task. Pretty much, right??

In fact, milk is one of the first ingredients we take when we get up, being many people who take it as the last meal in the night, thanks to the relaxing properties it has when we take warm. Not for nothing, our grandmothers did know their effects well.

So imagine the effects and benefits that drinking a glass of warm milk may have on your health, but this time including marijuana in the recipe, of course, if you use one strain with relaxing effects too.

You think coffee and biscuit afternoons are too boring? ☕? Then, sign up to shaking up this recipe by preparing that sponge cake with marijuana milk, made with a type of cannabis whose effects are physical and relaxing, for example..


We recommend decarboxylate the cannabis before cooking, because although during the process of elaboration of the recipe, the marijuana can be decarboxylated, if we do it before we make sure that the decarboxylation is done correctly.

Do you realize all the possibilities that marijuana milk gives you? That’s why today we want to tell you about the marijuana milk recipe, so that you can make it at home, step by step , and in a simple way.


✨ Ingredients



For the most basic and traditional recipe only two ingredients are needed:

  • full-fat milk
  • 2 grams of marijuana buds

Regarding the kitchen stuff, you’ll need a ladle and strainer, as well as a bottle with closure, or another similar container, if you intend to keep it in the fridge, although, on the conservation of marijuana milk I’ll make a little mention later. A wooden spoon will also do you good, if you don’t usually have it on hand.

Why should it be made from full-fat milk? Could it be made from skimmed or semi-skimmed milk? It could; but the problem is that the effect won’t be the same. The fact is that marijuana, when cooked, needs a little fat so that cannabinoids may be disolved into the milk and, therefore, you are able to note the effects of cannabis, otherwise, we will hardly notice them. So… the effect you’re expecting wouldn’t be the desired one.

As for the choice of cannabis buds, ideally you should choose a strain with a high percentage of THC, such as Y Griega,  Fucking Incredible Feminized or THC Bomb, which are some of the highest THC strains in the world.

One last note before proceeding the preparation of this marijuana milk recipe: We have indicated 2 grams of marijuana buds, but, in reality, this measure can vary depending on your tolerance or that of your guests. Therefore, you can also take the following measure as a reference: between 0.5 and 1 gram of marijuana per 250 mililiters of milk are enough to enjoy both the taste and effect of cannabis we are going to use.



👌 How do you prepare marijuana milk step by step?


Now that you have everything you need, let’s go with the steps to make cannabis milk.

-First, heat the full-fat milk in a saucepan, but without boiling. Once the milk is hot, add the grinded marijuana buds and leave them in the heating plate over medium power for an hour and a half, so that the cannabinoids get disolved



Heat the whole milk in a saucepan and add the shredded marijuana buds.
Heat the whole milk in a saucepan and add the shredded marijuana buds.



-I recommend to stir the milk every so often with a wooden spoon, while controlling that the milk does not boil. Why to do that way? Because with boiling, the properties of cannabis could loss potency and, therefore, we would lose the desired effect. Regarding this first step, it is also recommended to use a grinder previosly instead of shredding the marijuana manually, in order to preserve as much as possible of the properties of your plant.

-Secondly , once the indicated time has elapsed, you only have to pass the milk through a strainer, so that you may separate the pieces of cannabis plant that are left in the liquid.

And, ready! See how easy it is? Now it’s your turn!?

🚀 What effects does it produce?


As you know, the effects of smoked and ingested marijuana are completely different, with the effects of the second option being less stronger but longer. For this reason, it is always recommended to be cautious and wait, because although the effect of cannabis when smoked is almost immediate, that of the marijuana ingested may take up to an hour to start noticing, depending on our tolerance and the type of strain we have chosen. So this is the first point to keep in mind when using marijuana milk.

Of course, although I’m sure you know, it’s not recommended to mix it with alcohol or other drugs, because the effects could be harmful to your health or those of the people who are going to take your milk  with you. And, no doubt, it’s much better not to drive the car, motorcycle or bicycle, once you’ve taken the marijuana milk. You have multiple options to move from one place to another without driving!!

But how are the effects of marijuana milk? It all depends on the strain you have chosen. For example, if you use the buds of a Fucking Incredible Feminized, the effects will be relaxing and help you sleep. So if you’re one of those who have trouble falling asleep, this can be a good and pleasant option. In this case, besides, it would be very good for you if take it warm, so that you would notice in your body the effects that the full-fat milk has in your body.

On the other hand, if you use the Session’s Weed Feminized strain, the effects will be psychoactive and cerebral on the one hand, so it is best not to use it for sleeping.

And what if you’re looking for an inspiring and creative effect, or you need to increase your appetite?, I recommend you to use Quantum Kush, which in addition to having a high THC content, will bring you those benefits.

So, with this in mind, what kind of marijuana strain would you like to make cannabis milk with??



⚠️ How to take marijuana milk?


Now you’ve got your marijuana milk in front of you. In addition to that interesting greenish color, which will distinguish it perfectly from the common milk (very important if you’re not the only one at home and put it in the fridge), smell great! So… who can resist its captivations??

Once again, and although it may look like a childishly simplicity, marijuana milk has to be taken in small amounts, so let’s see what effects it produces on your body. So don’t compare it to traditional milk.

Cold or warm? Actually, as you wish. There is nothing written on this point. In fact, and taking into account the recommendation of taking it in small quantities, the truth is that you may drink it alone, with cocoa, sugar, honey,  tea…or whatever……

However, at this point and returning to what I promised you earlier, you have to take into account the point of milk preservation. If you are going to take it warm and directly, never mind  (well, wait until it gets warmy for your throat, yes….?), but if you want to take it cold, for example, before putting it in the fridge, and just like you do with any other foodstuff, wait until it cools outside. Once you reach the goal, think about taking it in the next 24-48 hours so it doesn’t spoil.

Can it be used to make recipes? Of course! As we use marijuana butter to make, for example, biscuits, milk can also be used to make this dessert or other recipes with marijuana. In addition, many people use it to make ice cream or Milk shakes, among other examples. What recipe would you like to use it in??




🔥 Now it’s your turn


Well, you already have all the clues and recommendations for you to prepare your own homemade marijuana milk. As you have been able to see it’s very simple: you only need 2 ingredients, you do it in just 2 steps and, of course, you will need an hour and a half for it to be ready, but… think about everything you will be able to enjoy with it!?

And, talking about enjoying…. don’t forget the recommendations you always have to take into account when ingesting marijuana: do it little by little, wait until the effect begins  to rise (it can take up to an hour or even more, depending on each body) and think that the effect is more lasting than when you smoke it, so… enjoy its preparation and consumption!

I only have to say goodbye until the next recipe but, before, I would love you to leave me some comments regarding your experience on the marijuana milk preparation and, if you liked this article, for me is a pleasure to give me some yellow stars and share it in your social network. .?

    Dose it have any special smell? Can I eat in my room😂? My mom hates Marijuana she will kill me

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hi Sara!
      It will only smell when you decarboxylate the marijuana in the oven.
      Then the milk will not have a strong smell

      Good luck!!!

    Hi, is there any correlation between the ratio of mj to milk used? Is more weed in less milk going to give a stronger effect or is it going to be wasted?

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hi Riky,
      If you put more marijuana in less milk you will have a more potent effect, the effects will be concentrated.

    Is cannabis milk helps for stimulating covid 19?

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hello Herry,
      The best thing to do in this type of case is to consult a doctor. Maybe he/she can help you to cope better with the days of confinement.

      Best regards

    I have no idea how this recipe only has three stars; it’s super simple, to the point, and the whole process (along with prior decarboxylization) can be done within two hours! As someone who hates to smoke, having such a versatile edible that can be made so quickly is a godsend when compared to the more common oil-infusions that you *then* have to make something with afterwards. When I want a spit of the moment high, it’s way easier than the five-plus hour process of making brownies! I make mine in my slow cooker with a fifty-fifty blend of 2% and half-and-half, and it always turns out great, excellent for hot chocolate or blended into a smoothie. The point here is: if you’re on the fence about this one, definitely give it a try!

      Hi Max!
      Thank you for your positive feedback! We’re glad to hear you love the brownie 💚

    Does the weed have to be decarbed first?

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hello Rik,
      If you don’t decarbonize marijuana, you may not have all the medicinal benefits that you could have.

      It takes between one and two hours.

    It doesn’t say how much milk? :¥

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hi Brooke,
      We advise 1 gram per 250ml of milk, but you can always adapt it to your tolerance and up the marijuana dosage.

    The other day I was just about to throw in the compost a load of fan leaves from a couple of plant’s I’d defoliated. Then I thought I’d boil a few up in Milk just to see if I’d get any effect. (I’d always just assumed what I’d read was true and they didn’t effect you). And I can’t believe it. Me and my partner have had a bit of a lost weekend drinking smoothies with this milk. The plants are only 4 week’s into flowering and I only used about 10 fan leaves.

    So unless I have a very rare variety of cannabis the orthodoxy is simply not true. You can get seriously high on fan leaves simply by boiling them in milk (no decarboxylation). I’ve now got bags full of these leaves in the freezer and they will last me months. You couldn’t smoke these leaves but they are just as good as bud for making milk and getting stoned.

    So that’s how I found your recipe – just seeing if anyone else simply boiled leaves in Milk. cheers

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Of course, at the end of the leaves you can also get a lot out of them!

      How much time did it take to get high ?
      From the moment you drank ?

      • Avatar for Juanma de

        Hello Anroop,
        It can take up to an hour or even more, depending on each body.

    Hey, love this recipe!!! Just a heads up, I was scrolling down and my thumb hit the stars and gave you one star by accident and it won’t let me change it. I’m wondering if I’m not the first person this has happened to since this recipe definitely deserves a higher (pun intended) rating than 3 for sure. Anyways, I’m very sorry🙁 and this recipe is awesome

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Don’t worry Davida!
      The important thing is that you liked the recipe.
      Thank you very much 💚

    Can I use only leaves or stems instead of buds?

    • Avatar for Juanma de

      Hello Xenia,
      Of the marijuana it is possible to be taken advantage of everything, but obviously it will not have the same effects that have the buds

    I have been planning on making ice cream with marijuana. I would love to use the marijuana milk for the ice cream base but I also use heavy cream as I make a custard base. Will this effect the ending results of the ice cream. Like will those eating it still experience the same high or will it require more cannabis? I will also mix in an ice cream maker. I usually use 2 cups full fat milk and 2 cups cream.

    I am enjoying marijuana milk in my coffee on some mornings. It is very relaxing, and I notice that the pain I have in my lower back is gone shortly after I drink it, and it generally stays without pain for the day.

    I have friends who do not drink cow’s mils, so can you recommend any of the other milks on the market that could be used. Thank you.

      hello Susan, you can also use soy milk, almond milk and oat milk.
      Enjoy 😉
