THC syrup is becoming one of the best ways to consume cannabis ingested, which on the other hand is becoming more popular every day because the properties of cannabinoids are used more and it does not have the drawbacks of smoking.

Continue reading to learn more about this revolutionary product.



⭐ What is THC syrup?



Although some people call it Cannalean THC syrup, it is not to be confused with the famous Lean drink that is made by mixing cough syrup with Sprite or Seven Up. THC infused syrup is a sweet drink that combines water with sugar, cannabis , glycerin and flavorings, but other ingredients can also be added, and although it could be used as a THC cough syrup in a way, it is usually consumed to reap the benefits of cannabinoids or directly to get high.

Drinking THC syrup can be easily dosed and consumed directly, but it can also be used to add the precious cannabinoids of our favorite plant to any recipe and quickly sweeten and liven up a coffee, infusion, milk or whatever you prefer. The biggest advantage of this drink is that it can be prepared in a very short time, and not many ingredients are needed.

✨ THC Syrup Recipe


  • The first step is to decarboxylate marijuana, since when consuming it, the cannabinoids must first be activated. You can take a look at this article to see the decarboxylation process, but basically it involves wrapping the buds in aluminum foil and heating them in the oven for 50 minutes at around 105º C. It is recommended to stir the buds a little in the middle of the process so that they decarboxylate evenly.

  • Pour the water into a saucepan or casserole and put it on the fire, once it is hot you can add the sugar and the flavorings, and from here you have to stir until it dissolves completely.

  • After this time we lower the heat a little and add the vegetable glycerin, we continue stirring for 6 or 7 more minutes while we see how the mixture thickens, and turn off the heat. In the case of being too liquid, you can continue heating and stirring until the texture is to our liking.

👌 How to use THC syrup?


Without a doubt, this is one of the most versatile cannabis extracts because it can be used in many different ways, although the simplest is sublingually by dripping the THC syrup. To better control the dose, the ideal is to pour a part of the syrup into a dropper or bottle with a dropper, and just open your mouth, lift your tongue, and drop the drops you want in the area below the tongue.

Can you vape THC syrup? It could be vaporized but it is not the best way to consume it because it contains a large part of water. Normally E-liquids are made from a mixture of cannabis, vegetable glycerin, and a part of propylene glycol, but they do not contain water like our recipe, so it is better to drink it directly or mix it with your favorite drink or food.

Many people consume it mixed with coffee or tea, since in addition to adding the components of cannabis we will be sweetening it, and in this way we avoid adding sugar to sweeten the infusion. It can also be applied in fruit juices, milk, soft drinks, or even plain water, and you just have to add the drops you want and stir the mixture, nothing faster than this. And the best thing is that it can also be combined with sauces, syrups, and other condiments to improve any recipe, or even add several drops to a salad, soup, or any meal.


Does THC syrup have to be refrigerated?

Yes, it is recommended to keep it in the fridge so that changes in temperature do not affect the mixture. Thanks to the large amount of sugar it contains, THC syrup can last a long time without problems, but it will always keep better if it is kept refrigerated. It is not a bad idea to separate all the content into several small droppers, and only take out of the fridge the one that we are using at that moment, while the others are kept without changes in temperature.



📲 THC Syrup Dosage Chart


Drops Mg of THC Power Symptoms Patient
1 8 Moderate Euphoria, relaxation Sporadic consumers
2 16 Medium Great euphoria and changes in perception Consumers with medium tolerance
3 24 Hight Strong psychoactivity and euphoria Regular consumers
4 32 Very Hight Very psychoactive with possible coordination problems High tolerance consumers
>5 >40 Extreme Possible mental block and lack of coordination Users with very high tolerance


*This graph is made with THC syrup made with 8 grams of marijuana buds with 10% THC, for other concentrations of cannabinoids it will be necessary to calculate the specific dosages.



🚀 How many ml of THC syrup should I use?


That depends on the user’s tolerance and the desired effect, but this graph indicates the doses for cannabis users, whether regular or occasional, and it is always better to measure the dose in mg of THC than in ml of syrup. If you have never used marijuana, I recommend starting with a lower dose, from 1 to 2.5 mg can be ideal. In the case of consuming from time to time and having a low tolerance to THC, it is best not to exceed 8 mg, although 5 mg can be enough unless you want to have a strong experience.

Regular users with a medium tolerance can take between 8 and 20 mg, and those with a high tolerance will be satiated with doses between 20 and 35 mg. Higher dosages are reserved for those experienced individuals who have too high a tolerance to feel the full effects of lower dosages, such as those who consume cannabis edibles or edibles on a daily basis.

If you need to dose commercial THC syrup, you have to be clear about the total content of this cannabinoid, to calculate the amount that each drop can contain. The dose of commercial THC syrup that has 1000 mg of THC in total distributed in 10 ml of the contents of the container is usually between one and 10 drops, since each ml of syrup consists of approximately 20 drops, and each drop will have 5 mg of THC. If the container has a larger capacity, we will have to divide the total content of THC between the milliliters of syrup, that will give us the amount of THC that each milliliter contains, and then divide by 20 to know how many mg of THC are in each drop of syrup of THC.

🔥 THC syrup price


There is THC syrup for sale in several states of the USA and Canada, because this product is more common in North America than in the rest of the world, but we are sure that it will soon be seen in the European and South American markets. The price depends on the amount of syrup and the concentration of THC it contains, in addition to the brand of course. As a general rule, it could be said that the price of THC syrup with a concentration of 1000 mg ranges between 25 and 50 dollars, although this is very relative as I said before.

If you allow me a recommendation, I will tell you that for the short time it takes to prepare this recipe and the few ingredients it contains, you are interested in making your own homemade THC syrup, since you can add the aroma and flavor that you prefer and do it with the concentration of THC that most interests you. In this way you make sure of what it contains and surely it tastes much better for having made it yourself.



🎯 Conclusion


THC syrup will become one of the most widespread forms of cannabis use due to its versatility, ease of preparation and use, and above all for its multiple benefits. In this post we have seen how quickly and easily it is done, its benefits, and dosages, among a lot of other information, and I would appreciate it if you would share it on your social networks.



🧐 Frequent questions


How long does THC syrup stay in your body?

In blood I will barely remain 36 hours, and in saliva a little more, up to 48 hours as a general rule. In urinalysis it can appear up to 30 days after the last intake, but in hair analysis it can remain up to 90 days after the last intake, so if you have to pass medical tests of any kind you have to take this into account.


How long does it take for THC syrup to work?

Like all other cannabis edibles, ingested THC syrup takes between 30 and 90 minutes to take effect, but can then take over 6 hours. The effect is much more powerful than when smoked or vaporized cannabis is consumed, and it is very important not to redose until we fully notice the effects, because we run the risk of going overboard.


Can you overdose on THC syrup?

It will not be a deadly or very harmful overdose like the one you can have with other drugs such as heroin or cocaine, but you can have a bad time if you go too far with the dose of THC syrup. For this reason, you have to take into account the concentration of THC that the syrup contains and the dose that is consumed, but you also have to know how to wait to check its potency before taking it again.
